There’s plenty to love already in Apple’s app store for iPhones and iPods Touch but I’m chomping at the bit for a few “coming soon” programs that can’t get here soon enough. First and foremost, as I mentioned the other day, I’m looking for a blogging app to write entries for this blog (which runs on WordPress). Both WordPress and outside developer Daniel Jalkut (of Mars Edit fame) say they’ll have an app real soon now.
Next, I’d love to have an encrypted password, PIN code and serial number manager app. I use Waterfall Software’s awesome Wallet on my Macs and they’re promising to have an app version out “this summer.” Fellahs, it’s hot and sweaty here – definitely summer. Key feature, without which it’s not worth having: synchronization from Mac to my iPod Touch and back.
Also, while the New York Times and Bloomberg (via Download.com) have pretty good news apps, how about the Wall Street Journal? I pay good money to subscribe online and I’d like to get better access than the mini-web page version. Both the Times and Bloomberg have good user interfaces and access to lots of stories and data. What else? What apps are you waiting for?
