Apple's spotlighted OS X iPhone applications

“Over the course of two public presentations—first, its iPhone Software Roadmap Event on March 6, 2008, and second, the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 9, 2008—Apple has spotlighted a number of different applications for the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPod touch,” Jeremy Horwitz writes for iLounge. “Though these applications vary considerably in purpose and likelihood of general release, we’ve assembled a complete list of what was shown for curious readers and developers to consider.”

• AOL Instant Messenger for iPhone
• Apple App Store
• Apple’s Hello World
• Apple’s Photo Editor
• Apple’s Touch FX
• Apple’s Touch Fighter
• Electronic Arts’ Spore
• Epocrates Drug Reference Application
• Salesforce Automation (SFA) Application
• Sega’s Super Monkey Ball

“In the Xcode portion of the Scott Forstall demonstration of iPhone application development, a collection of iPhone games was shown in an opened folder alongside separate collections of Productivity Apps and Utilities, which were closed. The titles listed were: AsteroidFighter2, BlockBreaker, CasinoMegaFunPack, ClassicArcadeGames, HangmanPlus, MagicRealm, MyGame, SpeedRun3000, and WolfHunter,” Horwitz reports.

Horwitz also covers additional applications shown during Steve Jobs App Store demonstration on March 6, 2008 and, of course, the WWDC apps shown, with screenshots, in his full article here.

    MobileMe works with the applications you know well. Microsoft Outlook on a PC. Mail, Address Book, and iCal on a Mac. And Mail, Contacts, and Calendar on your iPhone or iPod touch.

    Access and manage your email, contacts, calendar, photos, and files at All with amazing applications that are so feature-rich and easy to use, you may end up preferring them to your regular desktop applications.”
