My iPhone continues.... There are lots of people who probably get more "value" from their iPhones, but as a "novice" user... I am having fun doing new things with my iPhone. This week's "task" was to figure out dinner and a movie for my wife and I.
The first part was compliments of the "apps store". If you haven't tried it yet, Urbanspoon is a neat little application that via a "slot machine" like interface that recommends restaurants. Now, I didn't need a recommendation. However, I did need to figure out the name of a restaurant when I knew what it sounded like, but not necessarily knew how to spell it. That left the boys at google out since my spelling is horrible. However, after a couple of spins, Urbanspoon got me on the right track. The cool little interface moved me right along from calling for reservations to mapping directions. All very cool.
The move part was a little different. Since I don't have a "movie app" on my iPhone, I went out to a standard website. The website had a specialized iPhone interface. However, it appears that not many websites are doing a good job of tracking those interactions - iPhone or no.
Probably not the best idea when you spend that time, trouble and effort to "iPhone" or "m.xxx.com" your website.
