A Warm Fairwell To Dan


On June 19, 2009

We just wanted to take this opportunity, to say Thank You to Dan for over a year of his efforts and writing with us here on What On iPhone.  He will be missed by all of us and we want to wish him good luck and happiness in his new endevors.

We are excited to be welcoming some new writers over the next few days and to let everyone know that we will continue to bring you the latest news and reviews for our favorite mobile OS and devices.

We are looking forward to this coming year and have a few unique features planned for everyone now that 3.0 is out!

Thank You All…



Dear Friends,

It was about this time last year that Dimitri, Ron and I set out to launch a site dedicated to OS iPhone and the apps that would run on it. It was a mad rush to launch the site prior to the release of OS iPhone 2.0 and then a continued race to load the site with the initial App Store apps last July. In the year since the App Store has grown to over 50,000 apps, well more than a billion have been downloaded and the site has grown tremendously.

As a dedicated, some might say obsessed, iPhone user who really believes this is the next great computing platform, WOiP has been an absolute labor of love. Through it I have met some great people, have gotten to know and appreciate some of the top developers helping to build the platform, and I have had the opportunity to be constantly focussed on the newest apps or updates. I hope you, our loyal readers, have found the posts helpful.

Just a few days ago iPhone OS 3.0 was released. It is fantastic. This morning iPhone 3G S will begin arriving at people’s homes. (I keep looking for the FedEx truck!) Big changes are afoot for the iPhone… and here at WOiP, as well.

I have loved building this and having a site that I could claim as, in part, my own. For numerous reasons, however, it is time for me to bid What’s On iPhone fair well. This will be my last post on the site.

It doesn’t not mean I won’t continue to be obsessed, and write about the iPhone, I will, but through some of the other venues to which I have access.

For now, I wish all well, and know that the site will continue in the good hands of Ron and Dimitri.

Enjoy OS 3.0 and your new iPhones. No doubt this is still just the beginning.

App Update – Evernote Hits Version 3.0


On June 18, 2009

Evernote is probably the most important 3rd Party app on my iPhone. I use it for just about everything from notes, to pictures, to documents I know I might need to access at any moment and more. It was on the iPhone from the release of OS 2.0 and has seen numerous updates since then. And today, as promised on the Podcast a few days ago, the next version was released.

In Evernote for iPhone 3.0 you can now–

3.0 First Impressions

So we have all had limited time to explore iPhone 3.0.  We would like to know your experience so far and what you think.  Personally, my old first gen iPhone feels really snappy.  It seems to run cleaner and faster.  I love the landscape typing option.  The search is amazing.  I think the search is something that will make using the phone quite speedy.  No more swiping throught endless pages for apps, songs, or contacts.  Just type it in and there it is.  The camera seems to work quicker and I love the option of emailing or deleting multiple photos.  Please post your first impressions.  What do you like, what do you dislike?  How did the install experience go?

Yeah! Woohoo! Hurray!!! Welcome to 3.0!!!

3.0 went live two minutes ago. Start your downloads!!!!

An Upcoming App Worth Flipping For…




I love my Flip video cameras. They take great video, especially for their size, and are small and light enough to carry everywhere.

This Friday, however, they’ll get come stiff competition when the iPhone 3G S and its video recording, editing and uploading come out. The folk at Flip have taken some good steps toward securing their position, however. They have two HD cameras with much better images than the iPhone will have and they just announced a new service called Flip Channels. I have been using a pre release of it and now that it is live can openly say that it is an impressive addition to their offerings. In addition…

New In The App Store – Taptu


On June 16, 2009

Google works just fine on the iPhone, especially now that iGoogle is back on line. But is it the only choice of search engines for the device? NO WAY!

Taptu brings a unique aproach to web searches on the iPhone with its new search engine. Designed to be finger friendly, it is intended for small screen. And it shows.

It has been a long time coming but DataViz’s DocumentsToGo is now live in the App Store and… On Sale!

I just grabbed it and I must say… first impression is…



Question Of The Day



With new hardware AND firmware on the way this is a HUGE week for Apple and the iPhone. The new OS will add a host of features and the new hardware, while not the homerun many were dreaming of, will take some significant steps forward.

So here is the question…

Push Notification Goes Live!



Word from 9to5Mac that the push notification system is already live for those running iPhone OS 3.0 already. (Developers etc)

If you have been wondering what it is, how it will work and whether or not it is a real replacement for background apps (it isn’t!) check out this video…
