One of the biggest changes to firmware 3.0 is the app name change from “Text” to “Messages”. The icon was also changed, now with a blank chat bubble where before it had the letters SMS. Of course SMS stands for Short Message Service, which is only texting, but now Messages send pictures, contacts & current location. The icon, along with a few others like the Phone and iPod icons, have a new style shading to them. See the icon at the beginning of this post to see what I mean.
Once open, the top of the app now says “Messages” instead of “Text Messages”. Otherwise there’s not much different on the main menu listing all of your messages. When creating a new text message you’ll notice a new little icon to the left of where you type that lets you add a picture. You can take a new one or use one from your camera roll. You’ll also see the sending progress bar has been moved to the top, only visible when sending, replacing the name at the top. In the top right there is an edit button. This lets you forward messages or delete individual or multiple messages. Of course, you can also copy text messages and paste in this app.
