iPhone SDK Announcements: So Far, So Good

Thanks to Gizmodo's live blog from the iPhone Software Development Kit event in Cupertino, CA, this morning, we were able to get a sneak peek at all the exciting iPhone app announcements. Jobs was certainly there and not only did he show off the iPhone software developer's kit for the first time, but he also revealed that developers like EA and Sega will be bringing hot multitouch games like Spore (all 18 levels) and Super Monkey Ball to the iPhone. There will also be cool things like apps for doctors to search pills by shape and color and best of all, AIM! Yes, you'll be able to IM using AOL's iChat, with all slick features we've grown accustomed to, including invisible mode. All of the new iPhone applications will be sold via iTunes and will load over EDGE and WiFi. Stay tuned my friends . . .

I don't think they're done developing the iPhone; if I know Apple, they've got a ton of things up their sleeves as far as features go. I'm still holding out, though because a) I'm still under contract with T-Mobile, and b) they always update things like this behind the curtain, so to speak. As for the SDK, I'm excited to see what the devs come up with!

This is complete speculation on my part. But now that anyone can write an app for the iphone. I wonder if their might be a way to make the camera take multiple quick pictures and sort of create pseudo video. Depends on how fast the iphone can take and save pictures. And the video might be sort of rough, but it seems possible to me.

When I want to send a picture from my iphone to another phone, I send it to the other phones e-mail address, and then it comes through as a text message. I have my friends do the same, send from their phones to my e-mail address and then I can receive the pictures as well. It's a small price to pay for all the other things my iPhone can do that other phones can't! Although I do wish it had a video camera in it too! Can't wait for the new apps!

getting an iphone wasnt even something i wanted unless there was AIM on it.. my lil razr kinda sucks and needs an upgrade, but i can send pics phone to phone and take videos and put them on youtube.. and it sounds like the iphone cant... maybe i should look into crackberries...

Oh. My. God. I will be SO excited when they add AOL Instant Messenger to my phone. Add Yahoo! Messenger also, and I will be all set!! I love my iPhone. Wish the camera could record videos though. Or send photos phone to phone---> would be amazing!!!

It's so super exciting. Sega, EA and the other developers only had the SDK for 2 weeks and they came up with those amazing applications. Can't wait to see what happens in the coming months.
