I have had an iPhone for about two months now. I’ve been meaning to write a review, but you know how these things go. By the time I got around to it (today), there were already hundreds (if not thousands) of reviews available both online and in print, so I have decided to fall back to the standard “I have an iPhone” post.
Plain and simple, I have an iPhone, and it is the best mobile phone that I have ever had. My favorite feature is definitely Mobile Safari, which allows me to browse the internet with a real web browser from almost any location. With that said, it is still nice to encounter websites with interfaces built especially for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Here are three such interfaces that my iPhone could not live without:
- Google Reader – Simply access Google Reader with your iPhone or iPod Touch, and you will be taken to an interface specially designed for touch-screen use. Google Reader is the best mobile feed reader, bar none. I especially like the fact that it allows me to “star” articles for later review.
- Pownce Mobile – With Pownce’s new mobile interface, posting messages, events and links from even the slowest connection has never been easier.
- iPhone Pepper – With this handy Mint pepper, you can view your Mint stats in a single column, no horizontal scrolling or zooming required.
Would I recommend purchasing an iPhone? Of course I would! If you don’t want to leave your current mobile service provider, or don’t want to lay down the cash (or credit) for an iPhone, but you do frequent locations with free Wi-Fi, you may want to consider purchasing an iPod Touch instead.
