A software development kit from Apple that will let third-party programmers design software for the iPhone means the famous little handheld is going to get a lot more fun and useful. These developers will need to submit their new programs to Apple for approval, which means no pornography, spyware or software that would unlock the iPhone and let it work on wireless cellular systems other than those favored by Apple. However, that still leaves a lot of creative opportunity to unlock the iPhone's potential to become an ingenious portable computer.

Before Tetris, I would place at least the following:
1. A good solid task manager (preferably Cultured Code's "Things") that syncs with the desktop.
2. An iPhone version of Bento or Filemaker
3. A decent journaling program like MacJournal

The iPhone is without question a phenominal tool for all aspects of business. It does however lack one very important feature for all of us road warriors. . . Voice Dial is a necessity! It's available on almost every other cheap phone marketed. While Voice Dial is convenient it is above all much safer. Lets go third party developers, make it happen. I'll be first in line to buy it!

This seems like an obvious Apple Addition. PlainTalk is plenty good for basic command and I'm hoping for text to speech as well so I can have it read emails and even web pages to me on the drive.
