What features do you think the iPhone needs in addition to the ones in the 2.0 update?

I think it needs:

-video capture
-better SMS features (ie: forward SMSs, sending pictures, landscape keyboard)
-multimedia messaging
-zoom and autofocus for camera
-itunes store with music AND video/podcasts
-voice commands
-more memory (I watch a lot of videos, 16 gb is not enogh!) ( I have an 8 gb)
-flash player on safari
-ability to use picture as wallpaper for homescreen (like summerboard in jailbreak but safer)
-better tv output



By the way, how do you use bluetooth on iPhone. I don't know how.

As far as watching a lot of videos and needing more memory, I regularly switch out video files as needed. When I had my 8G iPhone, I never filled it up.

I really hope the better SMS feature is included. To use bluetooth, go into settings, general, and on the bottom it says bluetooth. Its pretty self explanatory from there..but also, the btooth features are pretty limited so far...

It would be awesome if i could fuse my sony ericsson w600i with my iPhone. Then all i would need is zoom for the camera and it would be the ultimate phone.

In Japan I believe you can scan the phone at retail outlets and perform transactions straight from the phone. Now that's awesome! Not the iPhone yet though. Just smart phones. That's what the iPhone needs though!

Just a few things

Cut and Paste - really, crappy $40 phones do this!
better Recent Call info (time and incoming/outgoing information).
ICE (In Case of Emergency) info on the Lock Screen. That way you don't have to make a funky wallpaper with the info that you always see. Other cheap phones have this feature too!
More memory. I would like to put my whole music library on it, even though I know it isn't practical. Around 60GB. Oops forgot my demo reel and other video. Ok make that a 120GB iPhone :laugh2:
Voice Dialing (user independent).
Turn by Turn nav (like the one Tom Tom has waiting in the wings).
FLASH on Safari! (I know it is already being worked on).

Steve said that flash was "ancient technology" and he also disapproves of MMS
As for video capture, that would probably be available in V3 because Apple needs other features they can add to V3 to make it unique from the 3G. Donno why everyone is freaking out about copy/paste. its not THAT big of a need.

For some it can be needed badly, and for others it isn't. It differs...

If everyone is freaking then wouldn't you think that there is a real need for more than just a few people? I would use it almost every day. Many programs could be enhanced if it was supported by the OS.

The only thing I can see is how do you work into the touch editing interface the trigger for highlighting a word/words, then selecting Copy. I have seen data pushed and multiple apps that read common data. So the hold out may just be working out feasible mechanics with touch.

They'll probably put copy&paste in the 2.1 update.

Umm... Lol

I still have the iPhone, of course, but I'm using my BlackBerry again. I even switched back to the BBerry Plan. Without it, you don't get a lot of stuff from the phone. Literally... Different icons and things appear after you're on one.
