Considering the iPhone had email, MMS wasn't really at the top of my "must-have feature" list for the 3.0 software update, but when it was announced anyway, I shrugged my shoulders with indifference. Only now that indifference has become annoyance with the discovery that the iPhone now refuses to send group SMS messages, instead forcing you to send them as group MMS.
Beating established Twitter apps like Tweetie to the punch (push?), iTwitter is the first one to deliver push notifications. But push only works if the person @replying or DMing you is using iTwitter too. It's free, though.
My biggest disappointment with iPhone 3.0 is there's still no push Gmail. (Probably due some to contractual BS, but whatever.) GPush is a 99-cent app that almost fixes it by sending you push notifications whenever you get a new message.
