iOS 4.2 for iPad – Notes App Now Offers Font Choices, including Helvetica


Another small but welcome addition in iOS 4.2 for the iPad: you can now choose from a small selection of three fonts to use in the built-in Notes app.  The big news is that one of them is Helvetica – which looks pretty damn gorgeous on the big iPad screen by the way.

I don’t use the Notes app very often (because of Evernote and Simplenote) but it’s nice to see this change, and Helvetica in particular.

iOS 4.2 for iPad Allows 20 Apps per Folder

20 apps allowed in folders on iPad

Folders are one of the big new features in iOS 4.2 for the iPad.  I’m running the first IOS 4.2 beta on mine right now – and I’m happy to see that not only are folders working nicely (and letting me reduce my home screens from 8 to 4), but they also allow 20 apps per folder. 

Much nicer than the measly 12 per folder that we’ve got on iOS 4 on the iPhone right now.  I’m not sure if this is a change that will apply to both devices under 4.2 or just to the iPad because of its larger screen.  In any case I’m glad to see the higher limit and would love to see Apple increase it even further.

Hello iOS 4.2 Beta for iPad – Good To See Ya

iPad with iOS 4.2

I updated to the iOS 4.2 Beta last night.  So far it is running very well and looking great. The multitasking bar is my new best friend of course, and folders are a god-send.  I haven’t tried printing out yet because it requires you to run a pre-release version of Mac OS X, which I’m just not wiling to do right now.

I’ll share more on 4.2 very soon. 

Anyone else trying it out yet?  Liking it?
