The software has been updated to 2.0.1, giving us zippier performance and fewer bugs. Apple is ramping up production to keep pace with the public's rabid demands. So what's coming next for the iPhone 3G? Oh, lots.
iPhone and iPod touch owners are no longer constrained by their iTunes song library thanks to the iTunes App Store. With services from Pandora Radio, AOL Radio and Last.fm, all deliver streaming music to iPhones and iPod touches, the dance party never has to stop because of a lack of tunes. We groove to each service to help you find which one is right for you.
Love Last.fm? You may like its eponymous iPhone app. Not familiar with the service? Do yourself a favor and try AOL Radio or Pandora instead. It’s not that the app is bad, per se, it’s just confusing and inconsistent, especially compared with the competition.
So the iPhone and iPod touch lack an FM tuner. So what? AOL Radio fills the gap and then some, serving up some 350 stations of streaming-radio goodness. It’s a fantastic app for music and talk-radio fans, and it doesn’t cost a penny.
If you do, the latest app store offering is perfect for the super-rich iPhone owner who has everything. The I Am Rich app created by Armin Heinrich, displays a glowing red icon on your iPhone to help remind you, just how much better you are than the rest of the huddled masses.
We would review this app, but we spent our last $999.99 on really nice solitaire game.
UPDATE: I Am Rich has disappeared from the App Store. Maybe someone bought it?
Maybe you just don't have the expendable cash to blow on a new iPhone 3G. Maybe you're waiting for some of back-to-school sale. Whatever your reason, forget it right now. Because we're giving away one free iPhone 3G to a lucky survey taker.
It's pretty simple, you take a survey and we enter you into the contest to take home a new iPhone 3G. That's it!
So cross your fingers, take the survey and imagine a bold new world of location based social interaction.
