I'm not a software developer, programmer or anything related to computer technology. I own 3 Macs, a PC and a PC laptop. The Macs work for me and Ichat with each other. Others in my family have Macs, and we talk live with video when we talk via teleconference. I like my Dock, and the ease to navigate through any application I use. The PC sits unused in the basement, and is only used to balance a checkbook with Quicken. And the jury is still out on the PC laptop cause I am only on page 72 of the 546 page manual.

I do know 1 thing already though. Vista SUCKS.

I have an iPod, a Nano, and like free downloading. I do not have an Iphone, don't see the need yet.

Please tell me why it takes 7 steps to change the system clock, according to the manual?

And, I don't have to duct tape a camera to my head. Oh, I will admit, my new PC laptop has a built in camera too. But, I can't figure out how to use it. It is somewhere about page 300. I'll get there some day.

That's what I thought. I just chalked up the camera on my laptop as a loss, who wants to read, reading is for <censored>

Bry, I love the popcorn icon, laughed at that one.

Vista doesn't really suck it's just a learning curve...

It doesn't take 7 steps... That's the problem with manuals they always tell you the long way to do things... Just right click on the clock and click adjust date/time (Vista) Double click clock for XP and it will open a window. Just change the time there.

My "Learning Curve" when I got my Mac was 2 hours.

stop

Who cares... I'm sorry I asked a stupid question, because come page two of my post, there is argument about why Mac is better than PC or vice versa.

I have a Mac.
I have an iPhone.
I want a program on my phone that can keep track of stats quickly and easily without having to write them down and transferring them on to my computer or having to enter them on a website through my mobile browser.

Thats it.
Thats all I want.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Can anyone help me out?

help

If your iPhone has some sort of spreadsheet program, try that.

What I don't understand is, how is it harder to:

Have a shortcut on your iDesktop or whatever that points to one of the several bowling score tracking websites.

vs.

Have a shortcut on your iDesktop or whatever that launches a native app.

And, what do you gain by chaining your data to your iPhone? What if you want to print a report of your spare percentage?

What could a native app possibly offer on the iPhone that a webapp could not give you? Maybe you don't realize how powerful webapps can be? I won't speak for bryhardt and his site, but mine is very bare compared to the features I will eventually have in it, and it already does quite a bit of stuff. When I am done, the only way you will know it is a webapp on your mobile phone will be because you have to open it in a browser.

There are certain apps that make sense on an iPhone. An app that takes a picture, records the location it was taken, and then uploads it to a photo-sharing site is a perfect fit. And, that kind of app exists. However, the type of application you are talking about does not exist yet on the iPhone. That should say something.
