    Have any apps surfaced yet which take advantage of the 3.0, the only one I can spot so far is IM+ Lite 3.0 with Push notification.

    I'm not even too sure on the IM+, according to a 'more info' link in the app, it actually uses some weird system of sending offline messages to your iPod's configured email inbox, then picks it up from there and imports it as a message once you run the app again

    (Not actually using Apple's push service with out-of-app notifications)

    Correct me if I'm wrong guys

    You're right. IM+ uses it's own servers to push out Email notifications to you once you exit the app. The only problem is, the so called "push" emails take a while to be sent and pushed to my Yahoo! inbox, which is push Email. Set it up with my exchange account, same thing. Something must be wrong with IM+'s servers, because it took 5 minutes to get an email notification from them. Also, this is a stupid move on their part, as they should have updated the app to use Apple's push notification servers, which actually work.

    Kargo, we launched two apps yesterday that take advantage of OS 3.0.

    1) AlarmTunes - A new alarm clock that allows you to wake up to music from your iPod library.

    2) Bluchat - A chat app that utilizes communication over bluetooth.

    Check them out and let us know what you think!
