- Safari keeps crashing
- I have been trying to use google pretty heavily for Analytics, Adwords, Reader, etc… Although you can’t view any Flash through the iPhone’s Safari web browser, you can view all graphs in Google Analytics by exporting to pdf. So a few clicks into my Google apps usually leads to Safari blowing up and taking me back to the main iPhone screen.
- No Flash, SVG, Java applets or anything other than Quicktime supported media (listed below…)

Other than a few bugs, and I would be stupid not to expect any, I love the iPhone and the concept of a standardized web browser! yeah! It has alot of cool stuff and has TONS of potential. So, here are the main things you can do in a web page to interact with the iPhone: (hold your oh’s and ah’s for the end please ;)
Call a number:
Send a email:
A location on the embedded Google maps app:
Or driving directions:
I know, I know, so much to choose from right? Don’t get to crazy all at once and right a mailto app ;). But seriously, I guess there are some cool things one can do to make full use of the integration features. I have been trying to think of a cool mash-up and I’m thinking maybe something with IPTV and quicktime conversion, or using slimserver to serve up what you can’t store on the 8gig limit. Maybe startup a slimserver directory using google maps??? Yeah - maybe I should think on this one a little longer.
