iPhone, You Almost Have Me

Now that the iPhone App Store is live, I can follow up on my earlier post about why I don't have an iPhone. Here's my original list of missing software and how the App Store has provided (or not) for each case.

  1. To-do list - As expected, OmniGroup release a version of OmniFocus for the iPhone. It's listed at $20 and looks pretty cool. The location aware to-do list feature is probably one of the coolest and most useful features I've seen in an application in a long time.
  2. Offline scriptures - there are 11 Bible applications ranging in price from $0 to $30. Some of them look good, but nothing yet that has all the LDS standard works
  3. Password tracking - SplashData has released a version of their SplashID application for the iPhone. It costs $10 and looks like it will accomplish everything that I want.
  4. Financial tracking - although I don't really need this anymore, SplashData also released a version of their checkbook software, SplashMoney for $10.

So for about $30 more than the cost of an iPhone, I can accomplish the main tasks that I use my phone for. Google and friends had better hurry with their Android phone or they'll lose me.

I am right there with you. Those Googlites had better show up to the game soon or they may forfeit their chances of introducing me to this wonderful world of smart phones.
