Sometime during yesterday evening, Apple released three brand spanking new iPhone commercials that showcase applications that have a common theme. Apple has aired these commercials in the past with great success. Not only does it allow Apple to showcase just how useful the iPhone can be, but it also gives developers free advertising. Since there are three of them, and I only have so much space and time to work with, I am going to get right into the good stuff. The first commercial we have is titled Itchy. The three applications showcased in it include Compass Go, iBird Explorer Plus, and Howcast. Compass Go is obviously a compass, iBird Explorer Plus is an interactive field guide to all bird of North America, and Howcast allows you to view how to videos for just about anything you can imagine.
Next up is the Student application commercial. It showcases Apartments, Snap Tell, and Photogene. Apartments uses the iPhone's GPS function to find available apartments in your area, Snap Tell allows you to take a photo of any U.S. media like a book and instantly get all types of information for it, and Photogene allows you to edit photos.
The final commercial is titled Office. It showcases Credit Card Terminal, Print & Share, and Fedex Mobile. Credit Card Terminal allows you to process credit cards on the go, Print & Share allows you to print anything from your iPhone or iPod touch, and Fedex Mobile gives you the ability to manage your Fedex packages.
I can't imagine how exciting it would be for Apple to showcase something I created, so congratulations to all of the hardworking developers. It's time for your 15 minutes of fame, eat it up!
