I have resisted getting myself an iPhone, partially because I like being on Verizon, and partly because I am holding out for a Palm Pre. However after a number of discussions about using Therap on mobile devices I picked up an iPod Touch to do some testing. An iPod Touch is basically an iPhone without the phone and camera (it picks up the internet over . I tried to convince my kids that I had to get it to conduct some serious Therap research, but I am not sure that they believe me!
As many of you may know, I am not really a huge Mac fan, I tried using one and just found nothing obvious about the interface (it took me forever to install Firefox and I still didn’t get it right). Now a lot of this may be due to years of indoctrination on Windows, but I don’t think so. If I didn’t like the look of Windows 7 so much I would give serious consideration to a permanent move to Ubuntu, the latest version of which is gorgeous.
Either way, the iPod Touch/iPhone is just wonderful as an interface. It is increadiby intuitive and lots of fun. It also runs Therap really well. It is probably the first mobile device smaller than a netbook that I would be comfortable doing a reasonable amount of documentation on. It also works with almost all of Therap’s functionality.
If you have used Therap on your phone or mobile device, I’d like to know what you think.
