Great iPhone Software

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

I recently bought an extremely useful and well-built application for the iPhone called the Wisdom English-Japanese/Japanese-English Dictionary. A very cool company called Monokakido (with an interesting etymology for those who read Japanese) has made a work of art. The Sanseido dictionary is excellent, and so is the presentation on the iPhone/iPod. It has that perhaps uniquely Japanese blend of being both functionally succinct and visually elegant.

Very, very, nice.

Lots of cool news out of Steve Jobs’ Macworld keynote, but this is perhaps the most interesting: Apple shipped 4M iPhones in 200 days. Apple probably set a low bar last year when they announced the iPhone — and their 1M unit sales target, but still: has any other phone shipped that much that fast?
