These apps aren’t cheap. They range in price from $50 to $100. And so much of their appeal involves observing them when they’re in action. That’s the purpose of this video — to show you these apps as they appear when you’re using them. In this video, I make an endless series of loops around Mill Valley, California in a hot car (windows rolled up and fan turned off so you can hear me — the things I do for you, dear video-watchers) while testing all three out.
What this video is not is a complete in-depth shootout review of the three products. The fact is, they’re all deep, deep products and deserve more time than I’ve yet spent with them. Look for our reviews of all three — individually and comparing them — in the near future. In the meantime, though, I hope this video gives you a better idea of how they work.
If you’ve got questions about the apps, I’d be happy to answer them in the Macworld.com forum thread attached to this message. And if you use one of these apps, feel free to share your experiences as well. Both sorts of messages will help guide us as we work on our coverage of this exciting area of iPhone apps.
