The iPhone Apps that I need

Filed under: Geek Stuff — Tags: — britinla @ 12:22 pm

The ability to download apps to the iPhone has further increased its utility. There are a few applications that I would like to see.

Our satellite TV provider allows me to set my DVR from a web browser. Unfortunately, the website uses Flash and so is not usable on the iPhone. An application for iPhone that exposed the DVR functionality would be appreciated; even better if it included a search by program name.

In conversation people often recommend movies. It would be useful to have a application to add these films to a Netflix queue. The Netflix website does work from an iPhone, but it I’d not optimized for the device,

My third item on the wishlist is on the way; I would like an application to play Interactive Fiction. This would allow me to play the old Infocom games and the more recently written pieces.
