Survey of Local iPhone Apps

Apple announced today that it had sold a million iPhones in three days (globally). It also announced 10 million applications downloads since last Thursday.

We've cataloged more than 55 applications (roughly 10%) that leverage the iPhone's location awareness capability. But we're just at the beginning of these services We've grouped them into the following categories:

  • Restaurants & Entertainment
  • Social Networking & Friend Finders
  • Yellow & White Pages
  • Movie Related
  • News & Weather
  • Transit & Travel
  • Miscellaneous

This is just a survey and not reviews of all these applications. However, it's interesting to see what's there and what's missing from this initial group of LBS apps.
