KILLER APP for the iPhone

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What the iPhone truly needs to succeed, in view of its obvious disadvantages (high price, limitation to Cingular, small memory for music/video, lack of voice dialing, etc.) is a KILLER APP.

Such an app could well be DICTATION SOFTWARE (since a microphone is already present, and a stripped down OS X) . . . software that would let a user dictate an outgoing Email, or dictate text that could go into a rudimentary word processor (like TEXTEDIT), and thence to a memory file or, by any one of several means, go to a printer if desired.

Then that device, trademark issues permiting, could be renamed the POCKET MAC !

And perhaps that software could well be incorporated into LEOPARD, which would give it the boost needed to stand out as more than a slight improvement over TIGER !

I don't think the iPhone will have problems succeeding. But nice idea.
