Can You Hear Me Now?

  All of the hoopla this past week or two about the dropped calls with the most recent iPhone release is a bit frustrating for a number of people. The president of Apple is not dealing with it well and waaah, I feel bad for him. No matter what else a phone does, it really should make a telephone call, don’t you think?

  I feel worse for the people who invested in the iPhone and called to brag to their friends about it only to have the call drop. Now that’s just embarassing.

  Who I really feel bad for are the people who are counting on Apple to get it together so that the travel apps we have worked on and are working on so diligently will sell like, well, like previous successful Apple products. Bruce and I are among those people with our “Kansas City Uncovered” app released in June.

I’ll be talking about that and more this Thursday, July 22 on The Walt Bodine Show on KCUR at 10 a.m. Call in and share your thoughts on travel apps and travel destinations in general.

In case you think I’m being just a bit egocentric in my concerns, here’s just a quick rundown of my friends/colleagues in the business with other apps out there.

Lynne Sullivan and Puerto Rico On Your Own

Amy Eckert and Munich Discovered

Carol Fowler and Maui Essentials

And just any day now, my friend Sally Walker Davies will release her app “Travels with Elvis.”  How fun is that for my Memphis-based gal pal!

And my friend Lisa is working on one from Minnesota and Melanie is doing one from the Wisconsin Dells and Betsa is doing one from Cincinatti and Tim has one from Orlando and Janet has one from Oklahoma City. Whereever you want to go, we got an app for that.

Free downloads of these apps and other give-away goodies will be a part of the good times at our app release party at The Phoenix Jazz Club on August 4, 5-7 p.m.  Call your friends and tell them about it, or better yet, send them a letter. It’s too bad the Pony Express isn’t still in business in these parts.

    What is even more frustrating is the fact that the media has really blown this out of proportion, and who knows for what reason? More than 3 million iPhone 4 units have been sold (including mine) and fewer than .5 percent of the buyers have reported problems. Sure Apple should do what it can to assist those 15,000 people who have had some problems, but the media is forgetting that 99.95 percent of the people who purchased these phones are happy with them. That’s a better rating than the average EBAY customer satisfaction rating. The hype does damage to more than the company’s reputation, it damages the bottom line for the people who have created wonderful apps such as yours.
