Robert Scoble iPhone 4 home screen

My iPhone 4 home screen, originally uploaded by Robert Scoble.

Já alguma vez tivemos tantas aplicações instaladas nos nossos telefones?

O Sr. Robert Scoble, não é o melhor exemplo em termos de razoabilidade na questão da quantidade de aplicações instaladas, neste caso no seu iPhone.

Senão vejam:

1. Social

  • Buzz (Web). Google Buzz, I love that social network.
  • Twitter. The official Twitter app. I find I use this more than others. Originally Tweetie.
  • Facebook. The official Facebook app.
  • LinkedIn. The official LinkedIn app.
  • Scobleizer. Did you know I have an app? Mobile Roadie created this for me and it’s great.
  • Gist. Great for tracking your favorite contacts.
  • HootSuiteLite. Aimed at corporate Twitterers. Still trying to fit this one into my usage.
  • Summizer. A Twitter search app. I don’t use it much since those features are built into other apps.
  • Twitterrific. I mostly got this for the iPad since most of the Twitter apps haven’t been ported to the iPad yet.
  • Buzzie. An app for reading Google Buzz. I find I just usually use the Web page above, though.
  • Seesmic. Lets you post to a bunch of different social networks. That’s why I keep using it.
  • TweetDeck. I used to use this more before Tweetie, er, Twitter came out with an official app.

2. Utilities

  • Settings (Apple)
  • Compass (Apple)
  • Calculator (Apple)
  • Clock (Apple)
  • Google Voice (Web, but very well done)
  • LogMeIn, lets me log into my home computers and control them, I mostly use this on my iPad.
  • textPlus, I don’t use this much, gotta play with it.
  • Weather (Apple)
  • Flashlight, turns your iPhone 4’s flash into a flashlight.
  • appsfire, syncs my apps and lets my friends compare which ones I have with which ones they have.

3. News

  • NPR News
  • CNN
  • SkyGrid, great aggregator of news. Use it a lot to read mainstream news.
  • NYTimes
  • Huff Post
  • BBC News
  • TUAW
  • Memeorandum (Web)
  • Google News (Web)
  • Digg
  • Techmeme (Web)
  • Hacker News (Web)

4. Travel

  • TripIt, my most-used travel app, tracks my flights, hotels, rental cars, and more. Very useful.
  • WorldMate, playing with this to see how it compares to TripIt.
  • Layar, augmented reality app for finding stuff in strange places.
  • TripAdvisor, we love their community and found where to stay on vacation with this.
  • Kayak Pro, my favorite way to buy flights.
  • TripTik (AAA). Playing with this, but Google Maps seems to be how we got around on our road trip.
  • TripTracker, another competitor to TripIt.
  • Expedia, buy travel stuff, airlines, hotels, etc.
  • TripDeck
  • GateGuru
  • Roadside (AAA)
  • FlightTrack

5. Maps

  • Maps (Apple)
  • waze, I use this to show other drivers what’s going on on the road. Cops, accidents, etc.
  • Trapster, see where the cops are hanging out.
  • Goby, find stuff to do near you.
  • AroundMe, find stuff near you, like restaurants, hospitals, gas stations, etc.
  • Google Earth
  • UpNext, cool 3D maps of some cities.
  • Find iPhone (Apple, find your iPhone if you use MobileMe, useful if you lose your iPhone or it gets stolen)
  • ifFoundPlus (message to people who find your iPhone)
  • junaio (Augmented reality app, cool, but still trying to figure out how it fits in my life)

6. Food

  • Foodspotting (see pictures of food near you, great way to find new restaurants).
  • fiddme (I love sharing great food on this with other foodies)
  • Yelp (the standard way we find businesses near us)
  • OpenTable (make a reservation at a better restaurant near you).
  • Epicurious (recipes for making your own food)
  • In-N-Out (in California, find an In-N-Out near you).
  • Urbanspoon (shake your phone, get an idea for a restaurant).

7. Location

  • foursquare (serendipity around location, find friends near you, and find better experiences via tips near you).
  • Gowalla, share your favorite things about your favorite places.
  • Whrrl, make a story about where you are.
  • Glympse, running late to meet someone? Send them a Glympse so they can see where you are.
  • Loopt, offers from brands near you.
  • DeHood, I’m still trying to figure this out out.
  • MyTown, a location-based game. I’m not into it, but millions are.
  • Latitude (Web). Google Latitude lets you share your location with your friends.
  • ArcGIS, get tons of info about the location you’re at.

8. Shopping

  • Amazon.com
  • eBay
  • Best Buy
  • Square, take credit cards from your friends so you can sell them stuff.
  • RedLaser, aim your camera at a bar code and this will show you stuff about that product, like where to buy it cheaper.
  • Groupon, a deal a day.
  • Gift Card Exchange, make those gift cards you get more useful.
  • StupHub, find concert tickets.
  • CardStar, I use this for those loyalty programs. Like Toys-R-Us has.
  • PayPal, pay for stuff online.
  • Shopping.com (price comparison).
  • Apple store (find stuff about apple stores near you).

9. Photo/Video

  • Best Camera, nice app for processing photos a bit before you upload them. Done by pro photog Chase Jarvis.
  • Photos (Apple’s standard app)
  • Camera (Apple’s standard app)
  • Justin.tv, lets me watch live streams from Justin.tv.
  • iMovie, lets me edit my videos. From Apple.
  • Viewer (Ustream), lets me watch live streams from Ustream.tv.
  • YouTube (Apple standard app)
  • Pano, lets me stitch together photos to make panaoramic photos.
  • PhotoCard, lets me create cards from my photos.
  • Light Table 2, I haven’t used this much, mostly for my iPad for letting me drag around photos
  • YouTube (Web, better than Apple’s app)
  • Autostitch, better than Pano for doing panoramic photos.

É apenas a desculpa para uma boa discussão.

Em média quantas aplicações possuem instaladas e quantas usam a sério?

  1. De momento tenho 26 aplicações instaladas e uso, em média, 4 por dia.
    Prefiro manter as aplicações a um mínimo prático no iPhone e em termos de utilização é muito na base de editar fotografias e colocá-las online (flickr e, mais recentemente, posterous). Tirando isso, a ocasional leitura no Instapaper e o meu jogo do vício: Orba.

  2. PT says:

    Eh devo ter umas 100 apps instaladas. Gosto de experimentar tudo o que anda por ai de apps.

    E uso 2 100% do tempo (ou perto) e umas 10 regularmente (todos os dias).

    Falta dizer… que não é em iPhone mas num Symbian

  3. ricardo says:

    Neste momento no Android, tenho 43 aplicações instaladas.
    De utilização diariamente entre 3 a 5, dependendo dos dias.

    Mas normalmente é algo do género:
    Banca SAPO, pela manhã.
    NetCounter, pela manhã para ver como estão os consumos diários.
    HootSuite Lite, para gerir a conta pessoal e a da empresa no Twitter.
    Gowalla, se me lembrar e / ou Foursquare.
    FxCamera, na viagem até ao emprego para ajudar a passar o tempo.
    PicSay para editar uma ou outra foto no telemovel.
    Wordpress, para gerir os comentários nos blogs.

    Claro está não dispenso o browser nem a aplicação para a leitura de e-mails.

    Obrigado pela participação.

    Neste momento tenho 94 aplicações instaladas no Magic. Estes telemóveis com um bom Market à distância de um click são uma perdição 🙂

    As que uso numa base regular são:
    – Banca Sapo (capas dos jornais mal acordo, ou ao pequeno almoço)
    – Seesmic (twitter)
    – app oficial do Facebook (que é um pouco limitada, mas ok)
    – Vignette para tirar e tratar fotos (em alternativa tiro com a camera default e depois trato no picsay ou no vignette)
    – Gowalla quado estou para isso
    – Google Maps ou Ndrive (passo metade da minha vida no carro :-/)
    – Evernote (provavelmente a app mais usada) para tirar notas (texto/fotos/voz) de tudo e mais alguma coisa
    – Market (todos os dias vejo as novidades e faço actualizações)
    – Opera Mini, que uso quando não tenho o 3G ou Wifi ligado, e com o Opera Bridge posso abrir qualquer link a partir de outra aplicação.
    – Engadget (é mais simples que estar a ver o site)
    – Jewels e Puzzle Blox Arcade (ela toma conta do telemóvel à noite para jogar :))
