Time to Build iPhone Applications Using Web 2.0 Technologies!
iPhone Apps are now also iPod Touch Apps

Kevin Hoffman's Blog

I was sitting down the other night contemplating what I was going to do for a good sample iPhone application when I realized, I'm not just building an iPhone application anymore. That's right - I'm actually building applications that work on the iPod Touch as well.

Seriously, let's run this down bullet-style:

  • iPod touch comes with Wi-Fi access
    • iPhone comes with Wi-Fi access and EDGE
  • iPod touch comes with Safari
    • iPhone comes with Safari
  • iPod touch has multi-touch interface, which includes tapping, pinching and flicking
    • iPhone has multi-touch interface

So, for those of you who were on the fence about building iPhone applications using Web 2.0 technologies, think about this:

Your potential list of application users is about to grow beyond users of the iPhone, and will include a crapload of people buying new iPods. If you think about the ubiquitous nature of WiFi (well, semi-ubiquitous), you're going to have people with iPod Touches hitting your application from coffee shops, airports, offices, hotel lobbies, hotel rooms, conference and convention centers, and a lot of restaurants.

So, why is it you're hesitant to write an iPhone app again? (and don't answer that if you don't have server resources on which to deploy an iPhone app... I feel your pain there..)
