Top 5 Reasons to love iphone 3G

iphone 3G
After finally getting my iPhone 3G ,I spent most of my time playing with the Apps and App Store. It’s early days but there already some amazing Apps available for the iPhone. This list features top 5 reasons to love or live with iphone 3G.

1. Looks (and feels) amazing

Whatever you think of the feature set, and the chances of your fat fingers destroying that shiny big screen, the iPhone looks amazing, and it probably feels amazing in the palm of your hand, too. It's sleek, curvy, bright and shiny , slim and sexy, with on-screen icons and buttons that just ooze and drip class.

2. Touch screen

That touchscreen is a mixed blessing. Fingers are messy things (some people's more than others) and sweeping and tapping them all over a glossy screen is sure to take its toll eventually. Plus, fingers are much fatter than a stylus, so you can't help but obscure what you're interacting with. You'll also have to invest in your own screen protection, as first-generation iPhone doesn't have its own.

3. iPod

With its beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display and Multi-Touch controls, iPhone is also one amazing iPod. Browse your music in Cover Flow and watch widescreen video with the touch of a finger.

Scroll through songs, artists, albums, and playlists with a flick. Browse your music library by album artwork using Cover Flow. Even view song lyrics that you’ve added to your library in iTunes. Get a call while listening to music? A pinch of the microphone on your iPhone headset pauses the tune and answers the call.

4. Wi-fi

Of course wi-fi isn't everywhere, but it's increasingly easy to hook up to the Internet at home and work, as well as plenty of other places: cafés, libraries, and urban hotspots. iPhone certainly isn't the only handset to include it, but it's a great addition.

5. Third party Applications

iphone 3G provides lot of third party apps to users.here are the most favorite third party apps.
  • FileMagnet
  • Shazam
  • Vicinity
  • Things
  • OmniFocus
  • Twitterific
  • NetNewsWire

For me it's the new GPS capabilities - especially if TomTom release their navigator product for it. I currently depend on a Windows Mobile device with TomTom which gives me all the USA and Europe on a memory card. Great for all those business trips.

I have given my thoughts and outlined a few possible upcoming features on the Bango Blog.

I think you have forgot to mention Facebook (with chat feature), Myspace and Bloomberg. Also, the first thing surprised me is how other web sites picked up the interface and developed iphone specific websites. i.e. google, google talk is now working directly from the browser.

Hi no doubt Apple guys are pioneers in the field of innovation and user interfaces. However if you want that flick photo slideshow for your site, kindly visit this link. I have tried to build a slide show similar to that in iphone.
