My New iPhone App

UPDATE: For technical reasons, I’ve had to discontinue support for this app. If you’re interested in my Paris Pastry app, which lists over 300 of my favorite pastry shops, chocolate addresses, and bakeries in Paris, you can download that at iTunes.

Thanks. -david


I’d like to introduce my iPhone application. I’ve recently become a convert (er, addict…) to my iPhone and like everyone said, it’s a life-changing device.

I’m still learning about all its capabilities, and I’m rolling out an application that’s a free download. Included in the application are recipes and delectable photographs.

And with the touch of a button, you can dial in to my Twitter feed, where I say things all sorts of inappropriate things, get links to blog entries as they’re updated, and visit my Facebook page.

Food bloggers can easily go into the kitchen and whip up a batch of brownies, but until political bloggers start paying their own way and going to the front lines of the war in Iraq, there is still an argument for conventional journalism. But still, in order to make it work, there needs to be a way to pay for it.

The publishing industry went into a tailspin the past few years, and is trying to find its footing. Books have rebounded but many magazines and newspapers are barely hanging on, and few good ones disappeared. Those that remain reduced their staff and payroll, and with the media asking bloggers and others to work for free, it doesn’t seem to me like a sustainable business model if you’re relying on free labor to keep afloat.
