App Organization

Users no longer need to drag applications from screen to screen to organize the on-device desktop. With iPhone OS 3.1, users can instead organize the layout from the desktop—making it simpler to recover to a familiar setup after a restore.

On-Device App Store

On-device, browsing the App Store hasn't changed significantly (save for the inclusion of the same Top Grossing category).
