Hello iPhone

This post was published on my iPhone. Turning 30 isn’t so bad with this in my hand. Be sure to leave your favorite iPhone apps in the comments.

  1. My favorite iPhone-related app so far has been Filemark Maker—allows you to save PDFs, images, etc to the iPhone via a data:// URI (or is it URL? I can never remember.); circumvents the whole “email yourself a PDF” business.

    Leaflets have been great when on the EDGE network (and when not) because it’s pretty well optimized for the lack of bandwidth.

    Lastly, LifeClever had a great post on some bookmarklets you can sync up via Safari for added functionality.

  2. That’s $500 that isn’t going into Noah’s college fund!

    Congrats on the new toy. So far I’ve been able to hold off.

  3. Leaflets looks great. The app list is a gold mine of shortcuts, and the feeds app is more user friendly than having many bookmarks to individual feeds through the iPhone reader. I just wish you could import an OPML or something, adding feeds individually is sort of a pain.

  4. I’ve read some people are happy with Newsgator’s new online offering, it has an iPhone-optimized interface and if you’re a NetNewsWire user (as I am), it syncs read states.

    I haven’t used it since they updated the interface for the iPhone but did try it 4 days prior and hated it. Not to mention it makes NetNewsWire run slower, something that app definitely doesn’t need any help with. (Although the upgrade to 3 has been quite nice.)

    My biggest beef was that it didn’t keep my feeds in the same order / grouping that I have in NNW; with hundreds of feeds, organization is pretty important IMHO.

    I figure between the 10 or so video podcasts I’m subscribed to, leaflets and FilemarkMaker, I can survive without mobile feeds.
