What is an iPhone and how good is it
With the advent of the iPhone, a section such as the App Store appeared in the iTunes online store, that is, the software store (also called software, software, applications in another way). In other words, just like music, you can now buy and download a variety of programs. Moreover, the company of Steve Jobs, the main character of Apple, acted very wisely, providing the opportunity to sell programs in this store to third-party developers and giving them a free set of software tools for this. To date, the number of these applications is about 15 thousand, and the number of downloads has gone wild for 500 million! Some particularly successful programmers earn $ 120,000 a month for a program that costs $ 4.99. For example, Steve Demeter, the developer of the Trism game, earned $ 250,000 in two months. Software The fact that you can install different programs on the iPhone is very, very convenient! As already mentioned, there are already about 100 of them on my phone. There would be more, but there is simply no more time and desire. According to statistics, the largest number of them are various games. Moreover, due to the large screen, amazing graphics, audio and video, the game process becomes very exciting. Even for adult uncles and aunts who had never thought of doing this before. There are 20 categories of various programs in the App Store. These are programs for business, financial (starting from home accounting to complex loan calculations), e-books, education, music, photography, sports, social networks, etc. Now for fun, let’s see what is installed on the phone of an ordinary user. Moreover, it should be noted that the owners of iPhones regularly communicate with each other and visit specialized sites, where they find information about new programs. Therefore, such an individual list can be quite indicative. User list of programs So, my list of user programs includes: The group of programs of the ICQ class – it is very convenient to communicate with friends and acquaintances. Why a group, not one? We choose a more convenient option. A whole set of e-book readers in various formats. This is for both himself and for work. More on this later in a separate article in the e-books themselves. Among them: “The Master and Margarita”, “Inhabited Island”, “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand, “Dream Catcher” by Stephen King, “The Point of Deception” – a new book by Dan Brown, author of the acclaimed “Da Vinci Code”, almost the entire series books of “Agent 007”, “Memories for English words”, etc. And also such a well-known book as “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, a film based on which with Brad Pete in the leading male role was nominated this year for an Oscar in several categories. Task planners – go through a period of testing for the final choice. Translators are also subject to choice, or maybe they will, because they are all with different functionalities. Musicians – guitar, piano, drums. This is generally a different story. You can play as if on a guitar, piano, knock on drums. The PocketGuitar program, for example, headed all possible popularity ratings last year and became simply a cult program, now even special music is written for it and videos are shot. Somewhere information flashed that there were even programs for joint playing music, such as the iPhone group. Vacations are such programs when you can set a timer / alarm clock and turn on music or various pleasant sounds. For example, the sounds of rain in the Hawaiian / Amazonian / Indonesian forests, the sounds of a fire, the sound of a waterfall, the singing of birds, etc. Home accounting. Sound and video recording is a whole group of applications such as voice recorders and video cameras, from which you can also choose. Programs for drawing. I haven’t mastered it yet, but recently there was curious news that a policeman, if I’m not mistaken, in Japan, made a photobot using one of these programs. Various utilities, including, for example, calculating tips, birthday greetings, a test for solving intellectual problems, etc. The App Store also has specially designed women’s programs. For example, at one of my acquaintances, even as a man, I liked a super-beautiful program that looked at the collections of clothes of modern fashion designers. Very spectacular and, as I understand it, convenient – the latest collections in very beautiful photographs. In the same series – calorie counting, shopping programs, etc. Please note that in most cases these are not even separate programs, but several programs of the same class. There is a choice, download a few, try and then gradually choose. In addition, it is becoming a good idea for developers to release their programs in two versions – paid Pro and free Lite with a smaller set of features. It is convenient to download Lite first, try it, and then, if you like it, purchase the full version already. Another observation.
