Looks like Apple wants you to participate more when rating the apps you have in your iPhone or iPod Touch. Arnold Kim of MacRumors posted a screenshot from iPhoneHellas.gr showing the iPhone software asking for a rating before you delete an application.
The latest firmware is said to ask the user to rate an application if they decided to remove them from their iPhone. Apple would presumably send the rating back to the iTunes App Store. Apple had originally allowed anyone to leave an app ratings, but the latest firmware requires customers to have purchased an application prior to rating/reviewing it. One qustion though, If a users decides to delete an App doesn’t it man that they don’t like it or have a bad impression of it? Why else would anyone delete it from their iPhone or iPod Touch if they like it?
Another screenshot from TUAW shows another new feature of the new firmware which appears to be the ability to download podcasts directly to your iPhone (and presumably your iPod touch). This could tidily explain why Apple rejected the Podcaster app last month.
There are also whispers about Google Street View apparently being available by rotating the device into landscape mode. Public transportation support and directions for walking also seem to be included.
Looks like we are going to see some new awesome features in the latest firmware update for the iPhone and iPod Touch. We’ll just wait for more updates and we’ll keep you posted.
