This is amazing. For example, my power went out last night and the only thing I could do to tell someone I wouldn't be at a class was to reply to an old e-mail IM notification through my iPhone,. This works about 50% of the time. If I had this app at the time, it wouldn't have been as clumsy. This is so cool. Thanks Katharine!

This looks like it could be very helpful, especially while travelling. It would let me initiate in-world IMs with customers.

Oh, and it works fine on an iPod Touch too!

"...iPhone had not yet become the dominant, transformative mobile phone standard. Now it is..."

Is the iPhone really this? Perhaps, at some point, it will be but currently it is just a fraction of the cell phone market and a fraction of the 'smart phone' market.

Of course, the attention it gets would have us believe otherwise.

Chenin Anabuki

I have been waiting for this. Thanks much Katharine! You just improved my SL efficiency by 42.5% (more or less).

Their web apps don't require you to even own an iPhone or iPod Touch. You can access them with pretty much any device that has a web browser. Unlike the iPod applications, web apps are universally accessible.

Hamlet Au

True that, I should have specified that as well, because I also mean developers are largely optimizing their web pages for iPhone use (as opposed to other phones.)

Katharine Berry

Since there seems to be some confusion over this, you *only* have to use '?iphone' if you *aren't* using an iPhone/iPod touch, but for whatever reason want to see the iPhone interface anyway.

Geuis Dassin

Really really cool. I'm at work, chatting with some old friends via the iphone. No one can bother me. LOVE THIS. Thank you Katherine.


It doesn't work :/
