Comment on "Do Consumers Want Indie iPhone Apps?"
by Scott Stevenson — Jan 23
@Startyger: No question these are useful apps, but I don't think most of them apply to the market Apple is going after. The iPhone is a mainstream consumer device. Google Maps is good fit, but Apple is developing a custom version in conjunction with Google. A lot of the other ones have great web-based equivalents.

Certainly Apple's approach doesn't cover every angle, which is an opportunity for the Treo and other phone, but I think the iPhone addresses at least 80% of the needs -- even more if you consider the needs of the average consumer.
