iOS 4.2 features: Find text on Safari web page

iOS 4.2 will finally give iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad the ability to find text on a Safari web page. It can be hard to find a specific snippet of text on a long, paragraph strewn web page. On Windows or Mac, you just hit CTL-F or CMD-F, type your text, and off you go. Now in iOS 4.2 beta 1 you just use the regular old search field (still confusingly labeled Google by default) and start typing the text you want to find.

Where previously you only got suggested search terms, now you get a second list at the bottom for words you can search on the page. Tap one and the first match on the page is highlighted in yellow and a set of buttons slide up on the bottom for "Next" and "Done", as well as a counter for how many matches of the word there are on the page, and which one is currently highlighted (e.g., 7/16). Hit next until you find the one you want, hit done when you're finished. If you want to change the find term, the search box is repositioned alongside the controls to make it convenient.

No more manual scanning, no more javascript bookmarklets. Just happy surfing.

One more pic after the break.

iOS 4.2 features: Game Center for iPad [gallery]

iOS 4.2 features: Game Center for iPad [gallery]

iOS 4.2 will bring Game Center to iPad and yes, it will take advantage of the full screen. You'll get a double column-view instead of single like on iPad, and that means your lists (like friends) will on the left and the detail view (like stats) will be on the right.

What's interesting is that beta 1 currently shows a number of icon-shaped outlines "dealt" card-like across Game Center's game table like UI. They don't show any apps yet, but tapping them does indeed take you to the App Store, and each one to a different game.

UPDATE: The outlines are now icons. Looks like they it just took a while to fully populate them.

Everything else looks to be there and be fully operational, from achievements to leaderboards to games.

November can't come fast enough.

UPDATED: iOS 4.2 not installing on iPhone, error code 10?

UPDATED: iOS 4.2 not installing on iPhone, error code 10?

iOS 4.2 isn't installing on iPhone for some developers if our email box and a quick search of Twitter are any indication.

It sounds like the install starts fine but then has problems during the baseband update and spits out an error code 10. That's hook it up to Xcode and restore to 4.1 language.

That's also why it's a beta for developers, folks, not for production devices.

UPDATE: Justin Horn from WhenWillApple and the TiPb iPhone forums gi

[Twitter search, thanks angry complaining devs!]

iOS 4.2 features: Change fonts in Notes [buh bye Marker Felt!]

iOS 4.2 features: Change fonts in Notes [buh bye Marker Felt!]

iOS 4.2 brings with it the ability to change fonts in Notes, traditionally locked down to -- what many type snobs would call the torturous -- Marker Felt.

The new default is Chalkboard, a new option is the system standard Helvetica, and Marker Felt is demoted to last.

Oh happy day. Settings pane after the break.

iPad on iOS 4: Orientation lock goes software, switch goes mute,

iPad on iOS 4: Orientation lock goes software, switch goes mute,

iOS 4.2 on iPad becomes like iPhone, with the hardware orientation lock changed to a mute switch, and a software orientation lock added to the fast app switcher UI's widget section.

iPad was originally announced with a mute switch but the description was later changed to read orientation lock just before release. Whether iOS 4.2 allowing Apple to go back to their original plan, or is simply allowing for more consistency across the iOS platform is unknown.

What do you think, change for the better or worse?

No iOS 4.2 AirPrint for iPhone 3G

No iOS 4.2 AirPrint for iPhone 3G

No iOS 4.2 AirPrint wireless printing for iPhone 3G owners, according to Apple:

Printing is available only on iOS devices that support multitasking.

Which iPhone 3G does not.

So add AirPrint to the list, along with wallpapers, fast app switching, HDR photos, and the rest, and how much further behind is the 2008 flagship falling?
