  1. Thanks for sharing this list with us. I was planning to purchase I Phone and accidentally came across your this article. Really great article. You should write more on this.

    Anyway, until the time I purchase the iPhone, I will share this article with my friend who has an iPhone Smart Phone. Hope he like this article.

  2. Thanks for this list – its funny, i actually dont own an iphone but i am always on the lookout for good apps. So often they make them for android too, but every now and then i read about iphone apps and stuff and would like to buy one. Then i have to remind myself again the reason why i didnt bought one already. Its silly but the whole reason for it is iTunes. I cant get over the fact you have to synchronize and organize these files that much. Also the tag edit system seems so over bloated.
    Very easy drag and drop on android with the usb connecting.

    So thank you very much, still i keep reading the iphone infos and blogs even though i work on android.

    best regards
