    The one thing I found that was something I never heard about in the update was the notification LED. I turned it on but I honestly don't like it. It's on the back of your phone so it doesn't work they way most phones do.

    Anyways, anyone else find anything awesome worth sharing?

    Tap on a day in the weather app and it expands to an hourly forecast for that day.

    That was my secret weapon! That was one of the only things I found (by complete accident) which made me go, "cool."

    I love the new Music icon that replaces the iPod icon. That was a GR8 idea.

    I haven't had a chance to play with it that much but the notifications are cool. I have to get used to them though. The pull down menu is nice. I really like reminders. Very sleek easy and streamlined. I will be getting rid of a few reminder Apps.

    It may be obvious to some, but it took me a while to figure it out.

    To get the camera icon on the lock screen just double tap the home button.

    I wasn't about to try to update my 3GS yesterday after reading all the horror install stories. I hope to install today and play around with it 

    Great find! I don't think I would have ever noticed. I don't use that weather app very often.

    Very cool about the weather thing, i found out that find my friend works whether your friend has the app on or not. Assuming they don't choose to hide their location. It's a bit creepy...

    If you go into the App store on your iPhone and go to your purchased items, if you swipe an app, a red box that says Hide comes up and you select it and you can hide a purchase you made so you don't have to see it.

    All of us have lots of Apps and with iCloud all of them are shown, this is a way to tuck the ones you don't use anymore away so you don't have to see then in the line up.

    This also works using your computer with the iTunes App for hiding your Movies, TV shows, Videos and Music as well.

    I like you when you scroll up in a text message it will now hide your keyboard.

    iprncess, its under accessability.
    I was super stoked thinking that it meant we would have a status light on the 4s
    but sadly, it does only make the camera flash "flash" and thats stupid.
    how many of us put our phones face down?!?

    How about a treasure that is golden brown and smells like poo.

    I can't put the newsstand app in a folder. So I made a new window to the far right of the desktop screens and put the app there.

    You can download and install multiple apps simultaneously.

    yes I noticed this as well. My best explanation is because it is already a folder for things to go into... iBooks can actually go into folders but it's not a stock Apple app. It's actually downloaded from the store.
