Okay iPhone people, I have a question. Can two apps run at the same time? I have white noise and myLite that I would like to use on the podcast cruise but I can't figure out how to run them together. I haven't begun to scratch the surface of what this phone can do and didn't know if there was a trick I was missing that allows apps to run simultaneously.
TIA!

Unfortunately you can only run one app at a time.

Well, not entirely true...

I think there will be an "official" background enabling with the new 3.0 software too?

Not in the way that Disneybridein2k3 wanted though. 3.0 only adds the push notification support plus a variety of ways to notify the user that a push alerts has happened. You still can't run two apps at once.

Ah I didn't know that!
"Backgrounding" is still useful tho, as I can for example listen to the radio whilst surfing the net or playing a game

Thanks for letting me know. I always think there are ways to do things but I just don't know how. At least now I'll stop trying

Huge Iphone fan here! Can't imagine life without it, what a GREAT phone.
My favorite aps are:
Disneyworld park maps, think they are so cool, even being able to view the menus of each restaraunt.
Urbanspoon
Facebook (of course)
Magic Eight Ball (kids LOVE this)
Word Scramble Light (ADDICTING, can't get past 54 darn it!)
Shazam
Weather Channel
Flixter
Days Until (LOVE watching the days to my next Disney vacation on this)
Cheap Gas
Around me (has helped out SO much finding a hotel as we travel).

Those are my favs. I LOVE watching the new iPhone commercials and watchiing the aps' they talk about, I'm always telling Tim to "pause that and rewind" so we can see the name of the ap's.

I have that one! Of course, the first time my 5-year-old played with it, my phone took a trip across the room

My DS's love that one and one called Star Wars FX. They love to sneak up behind my DH while he is working on school work and scare him.

Izy Mail!

Okay, I know I'm behind the times and admittedly there are so many things about my iPhone I don't know but I found a way to check my MSN mail on my iPhone for free! www.izymail.com - I'm so easy to impress

Why did you need a 3rd party app to view hotmail? I set mine up with the normal OS.
