  • Firmware 2.2 Hidden Features
    In the recent Firmware 2.2 seeded to developers there are a few very interesting hidden features:
    • A switch to turn off the loved or loathed auto correction. Maybe now your lols wont turn in to LOLS.



    • Google Street view. This is one of my favorite features of google maps. Street View is just neat. Now on the iPhone Google Street View provides 360° panoramic street-level views and allows users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas at ground level.
    • Japanese emoji icons. These aren't used much here in the US as far as I know but are very popular in Japan. They are little icons to add to messages and are also included in 2.2 which may help Japanese iPhone sales.

      Theres been an Auto Correct toggle in Boss Prefs for a while? I turned it off but then realized with my fingers I was better off fixing off fixing a few "ducks" etc than fixing all the words I was getting wrong trying to type out fast?

      like posts before, i feel as though we should be able to update the word base of the phones, instead on constantly correcting the same words over and over again.
      the google street is a little creepy, gives access to people's personal space. the pictures that showed up when it was first introduced were pretty funny/creepy.
      emiticons are a little cheesy....

      How do you use street view? Is it just able to be seen using google in safari, or is it integrated into an app? I use it in safari on my mac so I guess it just got the ability to see it in safari? They should have put it in maps........ you'd think.

      thank god they coming out with another update. I think it shouldve been implemented from fw2.0 but that's just my opinion. I'm happy this update is coming & I hope it's soon so I can send my fiancé smiley faces....lol

      I'm still missing this somehow. I went to street view in safari and it was obviously too much for the phone to handle. I looked in maps and didn't see it. Hmmm what did I miss here?

      I AGREE!

      "LOL" is annoying as is "Duck" "Sip" (for Sup) Etc.

      Why can't we add to our autocorrect dictionaries?!
      Because names/places/slang/etc. change by region and should be editable.

      But hmm... emoticons? Why not just throw in Multi-Media Messages too?

      Who knows, i just hope this update really is worth it... =]

      The emoji icons are not only available on japanese phones, Ive got them

      You need to add the " Emoji" add on via cydia. That installs them on your keyboard, Then I believe you add the Japanese keyboard to your keyboard settings in settings, Then simply hit the Globe icon on your keyboard to bring them up when needed.
