It is official, my first ever iPhone was delivered yesterday.
I finally do not have to be the envious one now that I have the amazing new iPhone 4S and all its wonder.
In fact, this is my first ever smartphone.
Kind of shocking for someone who has their bachelors in computer engineering. So while I know that I bought a phone, I feel like there is more to it.
I use to be a PC person. Actually, I despised everything that Apple made because of the fact that they did not have a prolific community of developers.
Ten years ago, if you wanted to program for Apple, you had to be completely dedicated. For a high school boy that really wanted to just make programs to cheat at Yahoo! Chess online or make productive programs for their handheld devices, I saw Microsoft as the company that had their arms wide open to programmers. I exclusively embraced the Microsoft .NET Framework for almost six straight years.
Then came the iPod and the technology world would be forever changed.
I Heart Apple
From that day on, Apple’s marketing plan would be about creating something more than a device, both a product, community, and brand. After a series of iPods, they decided to rock the world again with the iPhone by giving the user something more than just a phone. Now the iPhone 4S is more than just a phone, MP3, HD video camera, or something to surf the web.
The App Store is a multiple million dollar business for many companies with apps to do everything from spend hours killing pigs with birds, to apps that help you find your car, to apps that will always keep you connected to your favorite social media networks.
On top of the usefulness of Apple’s products, they make everything they sell look sexy. The newest iPhone 4S not only looks good when turned off, the Siri integration is completely captivating, and they have not messed with the iOS design which is perfect. They truly go the extra mile in designing their devices.
This is my first iPhone and I would love your help with knowing the best apps to download.
