I saw a certain category of tweets appear since monday that all were following the same pattern. They were about what the user thought the greatest new feature in iOS 6 was for him. So I did a search and found that there are many different signs of whimsy and delight.
Here’s a rundown on the best, which do you agree with? Do you have some that are even best-er?
Many are duplicates, so I cannot possible quote all, so this is just a quick overview.
