Top 10 Reasons Why iPhone is Better


The iPhone (or iPod Touch) is very easy to use, my five years old son can use it at once. It’s not only a better mobile phone or MP3, it’s a powerful PDA or a computer indeed. I summarize some respects here.

  1. Drag to scroll. While draging a finger, the mostly action is to scroll. This is very creative and different to other devices. It’s the most important characteristic I think, it’s the key reason that iPhone is so easy to use and so different. But this is a double-edged sword, because of this design, the “drag to select” and “copy & paste” functions are lost.
  2. Big screen with reasonable resolution. Big screen is easy to read, looks more high-end. In contrast, very high resolution is not a very important respect. Some other devices equipped a smaller but higher resolution screen, for example: 640 x 480, it’s hard to read on it.
  3. Good looking fonts. I enjoy the reading experience on iPhone. I like the digital clock on the lock screen very much, though there are just a few numbers, but I think it’s an art work indeed.
  4. “Real browser”. Safari is the best browser on mobile devices.
  5. Double tap to zoom in. This is important for a mobile device.
  6. Online store. User could download music, movie, app by iTune very easy.
  7. Well defined interface elements and design guide. Every control looks beautiful and large enough for operating by fingers.
  8. Multi-touch. This is not important, but makes iPhone very cool.
  9. Built-in accelerometer. This is not important, but makes iPhone more fun.
  10. As every product designed by Apple, it’s clean and elegantly.

iPhone is a great product, I like to watch it, hold it, taking it everywhere. But like other products of Apple, in some respects, maybe “It just works”, hope Apple could add more powerful functions to it. BTW, I want to point out that I realy enjoy the experience of developing app for iPhone, it’s amazing and feels like in a dream.

  2. For 70 many years the Church of Finland experienced a full-fledged seminary (1918-1988), but since 1988 those getting ready to serve the Church happen to be largely educated in the University of Joensuu, which has a division of Orthodox theology. The seminary that is certainly attached towards the Archbishops chancery in Kuopio, does provide the liturgical training and spiritual path, below the advice on the archbishop. In conjunction with the seminary, there is a Finnish Orthodox Church Museum connected for the Church headquarters there in Kuopio..
