Packed with 200 new and/or improved features, iOS 6.0 is much different than the iOS it will soon replace, Version 5.0. Beginning today, AppAdvice will occasionally highlight one of these new features in a column we’re calling, the iOS 6.0 Quick Pick
You know, that stretchy thing

For the first time, the Mail app in iOS includes a Pull to Refresh feature, which uses what we’d like to call "that stretchy thing." By swiping your finger top to bottom, your Inbox is automatically updated, as a refresh icon is stretched thin like a piece of chewing gum. This ability makes checking for new emails on your iPhone/iPod touch and iPad faster than ever.
Our only question: Did Apple credit Tweetie 2 developer Loren Brichter
for this functionality in the iOS 6.0 code or did they forget like Facebook once did
? Any developers out there with the answer?
What other iOS 6.0 features would you like AppAdvice to highlight in the coming weeks and months?
