There’s an App for That?

Another interesting tidbit from earlier in the week, also forwarded to me by tipster Chet, was an announcement (h/t TUAW) from USAA, a privately held bank and insurance company. Surprising, since bank’s haven’t been getting a lot of good ink lately. USAA plans to update their iPhone mobile banking app to allow certain customers to… Read More

The Future is Good Enough

Chet suggested last week that I talk about what the future will look like. So, like a good blogger, I’m recycling someone else’s thoughts. Not entirely a joke because I read this piece from PC World’s Linux Line shortly after Chet’s comment and immediately thought of his request. Definitely worth a read, and I completely… Read More

I Might Pay for JotNot

There are very few times when I read something and think to myself, I must blog this immediately and tell as many people as possible. This is one of those few times. JotNot is a web service that converts pictures into documents. Send a picture to them by email or upload one to their website… Read More

Oracle People iPhone App Metrics

Yesterday, I promised to share the Pinch Media metrics Clayton has collected for the Oracle People iPhone app. Here’s a snapshot. There are 30 new users since yesterday, which seems like a nice growth rate to me. Clayton mentioned over OraTweet yesterday that adoption was slower than he anticipated. Based on the comments left here… Read More

Optimized for iPhone

Did you know that for quite some time now (months), this blog has been optimized for iPhone/iPod Touch and Android phone viewing? Rich installed the WPtouch plugin what seems like years ago. I know, time has lost its meaning for me. In the past, I rarely came here on my iPhone, forgetting we had this… Read More

IPhone Apps for Units of Work

I found myself reading Floyd’s story about the Call a Cab iPhone app and nodding my head. That was embarrassing, like when you find yourself silently agreeing with a presenter like a bobblehead, except there was no one around to agree with my agreement with Floyd. Like I said, a bit embarrassing. Anyway, Floyd’s experience… Read More

Visual Dial Looks Sweet

Lately, I’ve got lots of thoughts about design swirling in my head, but while I collect them, here’s another homage to the iPhone crowd that likes to read here. Visual Dial is an iPhone app that “lets you create custom Home Screen speed dial icons right from your iPhone photo album with a few, simple… Read More

What Makes UI Good?

Thanks to a comment from Terry on my post about locking your smart phone, I’ve been digging around looking for ways to make my beloved iPhone more secure. Surprisingly or not, Apple has made it maddeningly difficult to even the simplest precautions. Terry’s comment, which I read a bit hastily, mentions changing the root password… Read More

Amazon iPhone App is Sweet

Last week, I told you about SnapTell Explorer and mentioned that it would be a great app for collecting and pricing your holiday gift and wish lists. I also wondered why Amazon wasn’t doing this already. Today, Amazon released an iPhone app that included Amazon Remembers, a feature close to what SnapTell Explorer does. Use… Read More
