iPhone First Impressions

I’ve had my iPhone for a little over a week. It’s quite a marvel, and what’s even better is that it’s a platform that can accept applications to extend its functionality. So far I’ve installed the free Facebook, Twitterific and WordPress apps. I’ve used the WordPress app to create this blog post. It’s pretty elegant.

I had to wait until my Sprint contract expired in early September to make the switch. If any SMUGgles have
longer-term experience with the iPhone (and recommendations on must-have applications), please share your thoughts in the comments below.

I also just adopted most of Guy Kawasaki’s settings for improved battery performance. I’m also getting some of his applications, particularly “If Found.” I’ll tell you why that’s so important in a future post.

Meanwhile, what are your must-have iPhone apps?

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for visiting Flying With Fish (www.flyingwithfish.com) and referencing my post on “If Found.” It is a great ‘App’ and ideal for those prone to leaving their phone places.

    The iPhone, while full of potential gimmick Apps is also a real took. I use mine in conjunction withmy Blackberry, but find the iPhone has become a valuable tool both at home and on the road for work.
