20 cool third-party iPhone apps

Mobile applications to make both your work and social lives easier.

Nuance's voice search software: While the iPhone has revolutionized the way we surf the Web on mobile devices, it can initially pose problems for new users who aren't used to typing on such a compact space. Nuance is now working on bringing its voice recognition technology to the iPhone to drastically reduce the need for users to peck away at qwerty keyboards. It works like this: you launch the application from the iPhone startup menu, you click on a "speak" button once the application launches, you verbally tell the program what you want to search for, and then you click "stop." The program will then translate your words into text and perform an Internet search for you. You can watch demonstrations of the software, which is still a prototype, on the Nuance Web site (http://www.nuance.com/mobilesuite/jumppage.html).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
