Answer – You’re kidding, right!
Ask again? Answer – You’re holding it!
Insightful, intuitive and a little bit cheeky -Siri has arrived as the major development application for the new iPhone 4S. Some, are disappointed that Apple didn’t release iPhone 5 ,but the logic of releasing an essentially same casing with top improvements internally – are difficult to argue with.
Upgrading the camera to 8 Mp, stabiliser, 1080p video combined with A5 Dual Core processor, IOS 5 with the same fantastic screen, makes the iPhone 4S comfortable, high spec/quality and takes cameras to a new level. Streaming via iCloud and your photos land on your computer by the time you get home.
Expect an explosion of new Apps to be developed by those creative software Inventors taking advantage of Siri, A5 Dual Core, IOS 5, 64Gb & split keyboard. Here is a list of Apps released with the iPhone4S:
Words with Friends (think Scrabble).…Hulu….
Angry Birds….iMovies….Cards….Find My Friends….
Reminder….Multi Player Games (anywhere)….
InformationWeek Mobile Edition….
Apple has 60% of the App market and Android 20%. By releasing game and App friendly capabilities (multi player, extra memory, faster, split screen & image quality) will benefit iPhones and iPads . Expect the game/app/software developers to be hard at it, developing the best new applications, NOW!
