It’s been a month with my iPhone and I’m already in a state where I wouldn’t want to be without it.
What makes the iPhone such a life saver?
I guess the fact that you always have the information or entertainment you need ready in your pocket. Full stop.
Of course a HTC, Blackberry, or any other smart phone fullfills the same duty. But I’m a mac chick, and a historical iPod fan. So the choice was obvious. Actually without the release of the iPhone 3G I’d still be a “normal” mobile phone user.
Frequently used apps so far are Facebook, WordPress, Zenbe and GottaGo (only for the Swiss).
I can recommend the Invisible Shield as a screen proctector. It makes the screen a bit rubbery which makes it easier to handle. The shield for the back sucks. For fun the gela skins offer a nice variety, and for real, not too bulky, colorful, and wavy protection, Griffin Wave rocks. For Swiss people available at Amazon.de.
What I miss is a learning feature for the dictionary. A Swiss German dictionary would also be a blast (but that’s of course impossible). And an Apple supported sms backup feature. I know there is Syphone. And finally my own sms tone.
I wonder a bit what my mobile phone bill would look like, as I don’t use the iPhone as a phone, but definitely as a mobile mac. We’ll see.
