    Please post your feedback about webOS1.1 into the appropriate forum:

    webOS 1.1 New Features & Changes Found (This thread.)

    webOS 1.1 Issues

    webOS 1.1 Discussion

    Please post only the New Features & Changes you have found in this thread. Posts regarding features already stated by Palm as noted below or duplicate posts go in the Discussion thread.

    The purpose of using three threads instead of one is so that you will no longer need to dig through a thousand posts just to find the new features. The Issues thread will be just the issues that you want to report. The Discussion is all webOS 1.1 posts that do not fit into the other two thread.

    We hope you like this new focused approach and ask your help by posting to the right forums. Please be patient. This will take the moderators a little time to sort out the 1,000 or so posts so far!

    Original note:
    Well webOS 1.1 is here and we hear tell that there are plenty of little fixes all over creation. Post stuff you find here!

    Version information

    * Version: webOS 1.1.0
    * Release date: 23 July 2009
    * Configuration: Sprint 1.7

    New applications
    NFL Mobile Live from Sprint

    * Watch or listen to live NFL games right on your phone.

    Feature changes to existing applications

    * For Calendar accounts you create on your phone, the default reminder intervals are 15 minutes for timed events and one day for all-day events. A few notes:
    o This change applies only if software version 1.1 was on your phone when you bought it, or if you did a partial or full erase on your phone and signed in to your Palm profile again after updating to version 1.1. If you simply update your phone to software version 1.1, the default reminder intervals in Calendar do not change.
    o This change applies only to Calendar events you create on your phone, not to events that are synchronized to your phone from an online account.


    * The Photos application opens more quickly when launched from the camera.


    * Enhanced support for time zones in Clock.
    * When you set an alarm in Clock, an alarm icon appears in the notification area at the bottom of the screen. Tap the icon to display alarm details. Alarm details include the following:
    o If the alarm is set for the current day, the alarm time appears.
    o If the alarm is set for tomorrow, the alarm time and "Tomorrow" appear.
    o If the alarm is set for any day other than today or tomorrow, the day of the alarm appears.


    * Friends added and deleted in Facebook on the web are now correctly added and deleted in the Facebook account in Contacts on the phone.
    * As soon as you create or makes changes to a Google contact on the phone, the phone begins a sync to reflect those changes in Google on the web.


    * When you set up an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) email account, you can enter the mail server name as an IP address.
    * Support for self-signed certificates with multiple common names has been added.
    * When you reply to an email in HTML format using an EAS account, the formatting of the sender's original message is now retained in the reply.
    * Palm's EAS implementation now supports several Exchange ActiveSync Policies, including the following:
    o PIN/Password Required. IT administrators can ensure a password is assigned to the phone. Administrators can also specify the minimum length of the password.
    o Inactivity timeout. IT administrators can ensure that an inactive phone goes into a locked state after a certain time period. You cannot set a higher timeout interval for your phone, but you can set a shorter interval.
    o Remote Wipe. IT Administrators can remotely erase all data on a phone from their Exchange console. IT administrators can also have the device wipe itself if an incorrect password is entered more than a specified number of times.


    * You can enter emoticons in new text, multimedia, and instant messages. Emoticons also display in incoming messages.
    * If you set the phone to use a 24-hour time format, the message times shown in a conversation appear in 24-hour time.
    * If you go into an IM account's preferences, all the options are available even if you are signed in to the account. You can tap Remove Account to delete the account, enter a new password to update the password, or tap Sign In to sign in with your updated password. Previously, you needed to sign out of the account before you could use these preferences.
    * When you delete an IM account, a message now appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the account.


    * When multiple missed call notifications are displayed on the dashboard, the time of the most recent missed call is shown.
    * When you slide the ringer switch off, a bell icon with a slash is displayed. Previously, the icon was a speaker with a slash.
    * In Phone Preferences, the Show Contact Matches preference is now turned on by default. When typing on the keyboard in the phone app, the phone automatically displays both the numbers being entered and any contact matches for the characters entered.


    * Improved functionality of person reminders. A person reminder is a notification that you create in a contact entry. The notification appears when you have a call or exchange an email, text, multimedia, or IM message with a contact.
    * Resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (8.2.1).
    * When you enter a search term in Card view or the Launcher to perform a universal search, if you select the Wikipedia web search option, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.


    * You can now use symbols from the symbols table (Sym Sym key icon + key) when you enter text into a web page dialog box.
    * If you have a page open at a certain zoom level, leave the page, and use the onscreen Back Web Back button button or the back gesture to return to the page, the zoom level is restored right away.
    * A new gesture is now available that works the same as the onscreen Forward Web Forward button button. To move forward through open web pages, make a short swipe left to right in the gesture area.
    * When using the Wikipedia drop-down search feature in the address bar, results are shown in the Wikipedia Mobile site instead of the Desktop site.
    * When you tap a link, the link appears highlighted to indicate it has been activated, even if it takes a moment for the linked page to open.


    * After you enter search text, you can tap the Search Search icon icon to perform a search. You still have the option of pressing Enter Enter key to perform the search.

    I just turned my phone off after the update. The sound was different when it asked me what I wanted to do.

    Uhm... did they change the email tone? It's the same "ba-ding", but now sort of wood blockish instead of tiny bells...

    It appears the wonderful font Palm created for WebOS has now translated to the browser. Facebook pages, Engadget mobile, etc all use the font and look much nicer.

    Kudos to Palm in the fonts department, it really makes it easier to read on this device.

    Here are a few I have noticed.

    • List Selectors now have a down arrow next to them.
    • Menus now fade in the gray bg shim and scroll the menu down.
    • Animations have been added to many UI items.
    • Phone app has been upgraded to "1.1"
    • Photos now has a thicker line between all images and other photos.
    • Notification sounds have been changed and no longer have such a "high-pitched" sound.
    • Web Browser stability increases.
    • Calendar alerts can now be set to "At Start Time."

    (I'll add more as I and others find them)

    I can confirm that the dropdown menus now have an animated scroll-down effect, or at least the battery/time menu does.

    TETHER: I don't have EVDO at home, but I was able to enable both Wifi and USB tethering, with both services enabled as well. Can't confirm beyond that (ie testing on laptop, due to no evdo).

    All my homebrew installs seem to be intact. Forward gesture is nice, too. But I do have to re-set my custom boot screen, as usual.

    Here is one new thing I've figured out with e-mail notifications (gmail, at least)

    Scenario: New e-mail comes in, and I read it and archive it on my computer.

    Previously: New e-mail notification still exists on Pre. Tapping on it brings up an empty mail app

    Now: Notification goes away.

    Has Photobucket always been available as an upload account in the photo app? Or is that the one menu on the phone I never looked at

    Photos app, there is a more distinct bar between the "All Images" and the rest of the albums.

    Also, when you take a Screenshot on the Pre, the Album name is now called "Screen Captures" instead of "screenshots"

    Browser stability improved. Sites that wouldn't render proerly or not at all now work. Like The Detroit News | | Thursday, July 23, 2009 | News, sports, features, blogs, photos and forums from Detroit and Michigan.

    I thought it was Orange + Sym + Tap to open URL in new card?

    Some nice changes that I thought webOS needed from day one to really polish the feel was the menu's animating in both for the top left menu and for things like error alerts, delete confirmations and things like that. They added those. Really makes the whole experience a little smoother and more polished.

    AIM icon has changed to the little yellow running man.

    No more checkerboarding in the browser? I can't get it to occur.

    Only thing I noticed that wasn't already mentioned is that it is definitely faster. My test was to launch a few apps, and then launch Pandora. In the past, when music was streaming and I brought up the launcher, it was DOG SLOW!! Now it's a little slow but noticeably peppier.

    When I did the 1.0.4 update I thought it was faster but it was just that I wasn't running anything after the reboot. This time I'm running several apps, streaming, etc. and I assure you, it's faster. Oh, and I like the animated drop-down menus. Nice touch.

    The reply formatting issue is somewhat better with EAS accounts now.

    I say somewhat because you still can't change the font/color/size, so it can throw off the uniformity of message chains.
