iPhone OS 4 Developer Beta: What Works, What Doesn’t

Most iPhone OS applications should work on the iPhone OS 4 Developer Beta. But as with any major revision of n operating system, there are sure to be some problems.

After the jump, a report on common applications I’ve run on my iPhone 3GS and the issues (if any) I encountered. I’ve had a fairly good success rate in running applications without a hitch, but there are a few that don’t do so well.

Working With No (Obvious) Issues
Facebook
AIM Free
The Weather Channel Max
AccuWeather
Google Earth
AP Mobile
Knocking Live Video
AT&T myWireless
eBay
MySpace
Qik
Pandora
WeatherBug
Tweetie
Urbanspoon
USA Today
Yahoo Messenger

Working With Minor Issues
Google (search results pages appear on a grey background)
Skype (works, but warns that it is not supported)

Working With Major Issues
Shazam (Loads, however cannot detect sound)

Not Working
NYTimes – Crashes at startup

    I have a developer build also running on my iPhone. Twitter search in Tweetie immediately crashes the app and in We Rule all of the purchasable building items ( trees, shops, etc) cannot be selected at all.

    MLB At Bat works for me unless I try and view the in-game stats of a game. I can use it to listen to games fine though.
    Some apps I’ve had problems with:

    Foursquare: This morning it crashed about 8 or 9 times before it worked.
    Apple Remote app: Wouldn’t see my Apple TV at all. Works fine on 3.x
    Echofon Pro: won’t start at all.

    Delivery Status Touch is not working. It shows the start up screen then goes black. Doesn’t crash, it just shows black.

    How can the photos in the photo albums be restored to their original clarity after the update?
