Lame improvements in iPhone 2.2

iPhone 2.2 is disappointing. There’s no other way to put it, but for two reasons, it’s a let down.

Podcast download. Yes, you can download a podcast direct from the iTunes store. Hurrah! But what you can’t do is subscribe to a podcast. That means I’m still stuck with Apple’s 20th Century “vision” of the PC/Mac as a “digital hub”. This is silly: my phone should stand on its own.

Street view. So to get to street view, I have to drop a pin. And tap on an icon which only appears in the bubble for that pin. What? That is about as counter-intuitive as you can imagine.

Sorry, Apple, but this one is a miss. 5 out of ten.
