The best new iPhone application I’ve seen yet is Facebook. Why? Because it fully exploits the connectivity of the iPhone. While you can’t install a Facebook F8 application in the iPhone client, you can:
- access all of the photos you’ve stored on Facebook, with an interface that’s richer and more functional than the iPhone interface. Unlimited storage, and a better experience. What could be better than that? And more importantly, why would I ever synch a photo to the iPhone again?
- access all of your Facebook email. Quickly, easily, and intuitively. The iPhone native Facebook email smokes Facebook’s own email on the web. Why would I ever visit Facebook’s site to manage Facebook mail again?
- chat. That’s right, the Facebook IM client is also available on iPhone.
