DB for iPhone
I run Filemaker 2.0 on my HTC Tilt (even use to on my SX66. I use it for all of my client project files, photofiles and project management. Lets see Filemaker's Apple's own product and yet it does not run native on the most powerful PDA device on the market.
I'm still so blown away that the iPhone is getting all these raves when it's really an over glorified phone/mp3 player. I had one for two weeks (iPhone ver. 1.0) I love its OS though some hurdles I'd like to see solved:
- sorting of contact by company names (sorry I don't remember everyone's name with vendors and companies I deal with. Like to sort by company, last name please.
- finally 2.0 solves the multiple deletion of emails. one good fix.
- a fully programmable relational database. can you say FILEMAKER
- integration of the contact, calendar, todo/task list. Take a look at Adgendus (www.iambic.com
). a sweet shell that runs over the OS of WinMobile
- applications that can run native, NOT web based. I really don't want my phone bill higher than it is. Oh yeah... they made a deal with AT&T... hummm sounds like something done on the 'cross-roads'.
- Flash? Uh, does anyone know...does iPh 2.0 support Flash finally?
- SD memory micro! Sure would be nice to have a chip to add memory or maybe files I want to make portable (not have to sync with the memory hog iTunes.
- how about a very small, low memory profile sync-ing app. Something that can tie into things you want to sync. Like apps and data.
- Works. Would be so awesome to be able to work on an Excel sheet or Word doc. from the iPhone. That big screen, the zoom-ability. It's so perfect and a QERTY keyboard.
-replaceable battery so, when my phone is low I can swap out the battery for a fully charged one and recharge the first.
The iPhone has the most powerful processor in any PDA in the world, the biggest memory HD of any device, the cleanest and fastest OS. Why can't it do something real for me, a computer user that also would like to have a really portable computer....which the iPhone so easily can be and be native.
BTW- traded in the iPhone 1.0 back to the HTC Tilt, until someone can show me the iPhone can really do something.
Love the device as a unit though... very cool looking.
