just ordered Spirnt 4s
I just ordered the daughter a 4s, and wanting to get some inside info. I'm an Android guy and the wife has a Blackberry. I plan on loading up Google apps (latiude, talk, voice, etc). Are there any issues/tips that I should know about with those apps and iOS integration? I'm not unfamiliar with the iOS platform and looking to make this as easy as possible on her and myself. Also, is there the option of hiding icons on the home screens? Are there any must have apps that make things easier/smoother/etc?
Thanks in advance!!

I don't think you can hide apps, but you can put them on the back pages of your app screens to hide them. I've got a couple I can't delete (news stand and iTunes) on the last page of my apps all by themselves to keep from looking at them. You can also create folders for apps and hide them in there that way, but the folders can't be hidden.
I will say that the iPhone doesn't come with all the bloated preinstalled crap that BB does. It comes with the basics and that's it. I love it. With BB, there were a dozen or so pre-installed links to download apps that I couldn't delete. I hated that.
For must have apps, it depends on what you want. The first apps I downloaded were Sirius's iPhone App, NHL Game Center Live, Words with Friends and Angry Birds.

If you are used to watching Flash videos on your Android, try Puffin browser.
MapQuest is an alternative for turn by turn directions a la google navigation.
Find iPhone and Find iFriends are pretty handy too (but limited to friends with iPhone only).

if she uses gmail I suggest setting up the email account using the "exchange" setting instead of the gmail route
the server to use is m.google.com
with the exchange way you can fully sync contacts calendar and email and its all push instead of fetch.
hope this helps
