Vox Pop: What's on your iPhone app wish list?

Now that Steve has announced there's an iPhone/iPod Touch SDK coming in February, what's at the top of your application wish list?

The Question to You

What’s the first application for iPhone you’d like to see? Where’s the biggest hole in your iPhone world right now?

Perhaps not surprisingly, I'm hoping for a great, sync-able, no-internet-required task management application. Can't wait to see what my OmniFocus pals come up with.

Re: Vox Pop: What's on your iPhone app wish list?

One weird idea I long for is a kind of lifetracking application, that just automatically journals your activities for you. So you can look back and see, today I went here, here and here (and these are the photos), and I read these emails and I spoke to these people for this long and spent X hours sitting at my desk and this long commuting. The more data you can grab from different services or other iPhone apps - twitter, money tracking, whatever - the better picture you have of what you did in a day.

When you have that data in a grokkable form, you could do some really awesome analysis of what the hell you're doing with your life. ;)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
