If you didn’t know, I recently got an iPhone…. it fucking rocks. I’ve been a total slut for the camera and I don’t care who knows it. I’ve been using it non-stop and finding as many was as I can to use the cool headphones/headset to talk to people on the phone.
And before you guess, yes I’ve downloaded a ton of apps and yes I did jailbreak the phone. Too much dismay (and wasted time) I ended up re-formatting and going back to the old iPhone. Why? Well let me just explain it to you:
I heard Pwnage 2.0.2 was out and the guys at Gizmodo and Lifehacker were raving about it so I decided to try it. I’d had my iPod Touch jailbroken for a long ass time (well, before I sold it and 2.0 software was out) and it was amazing. I loved all the free apps and the coolness they allowed. It was like… unlimited fun. Then BAM! the iPhone 2.0 software is out so I ‘got’ the iTouch software on my iPod Touch and was cool with it… So, I was digging jailbreaking my iPhone assuming things would be just as kick-ass but with the phone and camera added on.
I was wrong.
As I should have researched, there are near 0 good apps out that interest me on the jailbroken market (the NES emulator is cool, but not that cool). So after probably 3 hours of reformatting, updating, refilling and all that I decided to clear things out (again!) to go back to factory settings. And that was that.
I’ll definitely be waiting to jailbreak until some amazing apps come out.
That said, I am digging the apps out legitimately for the iPhone. Mind you, I haven’t yet bought an app, but I’ve pretty much tried every free app out there and I keep a few special ones on my iPhone (Solitaire, BreakOut, Twitterrific, Klick, and a few others). So all is good.
Heading to bed now…
