Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer
The more I use eReader on the iPhone and iPod Touch the more I like it.
As I posted yesterday, the folks at eReader/Fictionwise were quite forthcoming about the fact that they chose to get eReader out the door and available on the App Store immediately even though it meant releasing a somewhat limited version NOW.
A good call.
Well… I started reading James Patterson’s new book Sail and was pleased to discover one piece of functionality they didn’t leave out of the initial release- "word look up".
While we are talking about electronic wallets for the iPhone and iPod Touch there is one other upcoming option that will likely be worth consideration.
I have been using 1Password since I made the move to Mac last August and I swear by it. It is useful, well-conceived and constantly updated. I would NOT own a Mac without having installed it and I have recommended it to everyone I have prompted to "Switch" (12 and climbing!).
Word is that 1Password for iPhone has been submitted to Apple and is simply waiting for approval. It should be available by next week.
While I have not yet seen the application, the description of it is amazing! Clearly they have built the app from the ground up. Recognizing that an iPhone/iPod Touch is used differently than a desktop (for example turned on and off frequently) they have reconsidered all aspects of it and come up with some excellent solutions.
SplashData’s SplashID electronic wallet program (left) was available on the first day of the iTunes App Store, beating ilium’s just released eWallet (right) to the punch. Now that both are out and available, though, how do they compare?
Both are longstanding favorites among the Windows Mobile community.
Both protect your data with a high level of encryption.
Both offer the flexibility to organize and protect a wide-range of information.
Both cost $9.99 in the App Store.
Sounds like a toss-up right? Not so fast.
I love Evernote and use it all the time.
BUT… as I wrote earlier in the week I was underwhealmed and disappointed by the initial release of Evernote for iPhone.
Don’t get me wrong, Evernote for iPhone is terrific for what it is, but it doesn’t add all that much over the web app and I want/need more from it.
My biggest disappointments-
-Notes are only availably when a data connection is active (in other words notes are not resident)
-Note are currently "Read Only" and editing is not currently possible
Well, it is good to know that a (partial) fix is in the works.
It is no secret that I was thrilled to see eReader software available on the App Store on day one. More information regarding both the initial timing of the release and future plans for the software are now available and it is all good news.
According to the eReader website the decision to release the basic reader as quickly and early as possible, rather than spend months getting every last feature worked into the application, was based on customer feedback. Thus, in early releases of the software they are stressing usability and content connectivity.
In my opinion it was an excellent decision. They got it to market immediately. It works, it is usable and it is stable. For that they should be applauded!
Things are only going to get better, however.

Our goal, when we started WhatsOniPhone a little over a month ago, was to quickly become a community resource for sharing news and reviews on the applications that are transforming the iPhone and iPod Touch in the next-generation computing platform.
Our goal is also to become a place where developers can make their voices heard, share insights, plans and the latest news, and receive thoughtful feedback on their work.
We are pleased to share with you that based on our review, as well as feedback from other users, John Ellis of Standard Widget Corp, the developers behind iToony, contacted us to let us, and you, know that they have decided to lower the price on iToony to $2.99 USD. This is not, John told us, a temporary change but a permanent one.
We applaud John for making this adjustment and making iToony a better value for consumers. We encourage you to check iToony out.
Reviews from me have so far been pretty thin on the ground and I’m sorry. Its not that I’m being lazy, or even that I’m too caught up in playing with all of the great new App Store software to sit down and write, no its much worse than that. I STILL don’t have an iPhone!
I thought I was being cunning by selling my G1 iPhone a couple of days before the announcement of the 3G. I got a good price and I thought I’d only have a few days to wait to pick up the next model… Alas, Steve Jobs made us wait a month between his announcement and the release, and then to my dismay, Charles Dunstone has got me waiting another 2 weeks.
For those of you who don’t know, old Charlie is the Chairman of "The Carphone Warehouse". An "independent" phone shop chain that has 700 stores in the UK and a deal to sell iPhones on the o2 network alongside the Apple and o2 shops.
I am now being told that my iPhone will most likely be delivered on Monday 28th July. And its not like I just ordered it either, I queued for 3 hours at the opening of my local store and was the 5th person to the desk!! Unfortunately my local CPW (Brighton, Western Road) had been delivered 10 x 8gbs and only 2 x 16gbs.
Being number 5 I was given the choice of an 8gb iPhone there and then, or a 16gb delivered to my home the next day. The manager assured me that there were over 1500 in the warehouse when I ordered and that one of those was allocated to me for next day delivery. So I walked out £59 lighter and signed up to a £45 per month tariff with nothing more than a SIM card to show for my 3 hour wait!
Of course Saturday came and went, Monday came and went, I was told Friday delivery, then I was told that that delivery was only 8gbs, so I am now being told that the next delivery will be Friday 25th which should mean it actually gets to me on Monday July 28th. 17 days after I queued!
The best part is that I got my first o2 bill this morning! £45 for the month and I haven’t even got a phone!
Anyhow, you can rest assured that I have my eye on a number of apps that I’d like to try out and review and as soon as I have something to install it on I will be writing here!
Charles Dunstone, if you’re reading this, sort it out mate!
