Thread: Apps compatibility

I need your HELLLLLPPPPPP PLEASE
Apps compatibility with firmware 2.1.
I'm happily running my iPhone on 113 but wondering if I'm leaving it too late to catch up with firmware. I know that the latter I leave the more painful it will be
I have a few applications that I need to know if they will work on firmware 2.1 and here is where I need your own experience:
weDict - I installed the Spanish dictionary manually - is it still the case?
SMSD --> I know it doesn't work beyond 1.1.3 but there are new applications now that might be a substitute.
So, if you are running firmware 2.1 PLEASE please Help by just saying I'm running application xyz and it works well or it doesn't work, whatever the case might be.
Thanks in advance.

OK, I went for it and upgraded to 2.1 for now.
It's quite easy to jailbrake / unlock with the software available at the moment. When I first jailbrake my iPhone was 1.1.2 OTB and it was a lengthy exercise downgrading to 1.1.1 frst the jailbraking then upgrading to 1.1.2 and jailbraking again
I loved my iphone as a 1.1.3 and after the upgrade I was introduced to a new ball game.... where Apps Store is a big part of the iphone 's community now. Most free downloadable through installer applications that I knew in 1.1.3 and before are now paid for from Apps Store. I think the spirit of creating free applications has now gone for ever and applications developers are trying to cash in with the iPhone's popularity.
Will this kill the iPhone or make it bigger than ever? I'm not sure... I think there are good arguments on both sides
If it wasn't so complicated and time consuming I would happily go back to 1.1.3 - the only reason I've found so far to stay with 2.1 is the SMS and wide keyboard.
