Email'n'Walk app for iPhone provides window like view
So you like taking long walks and writing emails, but can't seem to do both at the same time because you might trip on something? If you're an iPhone owner, you're in luck because the Email'n'Walk app will allow you to do just what is says. We're not sure why this was not created earlier; seeing all it had to do was display video from the camera while using the email app. There is a transparent view on screen showing what is in front of you while casually walking. So now you send an email without the worry of walking into someone or tripping over something. Let's face it, this might be one of the greatest things to aid some people! But if they can implement this with SMS, then it might truly be a savior.

Kind of weird. If it is offered by Apple themselves then cool but if it is a third party app then no thanks.

Wow. Do people seriously need to be that connected that they can't stop to type the email and pay attention to there surroundings all around and not just the ground in front of them? I think some of us sometimes really need to evaluate our lifestyles a bit sometimes. It's a good idea though no doubt. Might not be good for battery life though if you send a lot of emails.

Really?!?! iPhone Apps are just getting ridiculous. I dont even think Apple is trying to appeal to the professional anymore.

I honestly don't think that the iPhone was targeted to the professional in the first place. It is the iPod Touch with cellular phone capabilities, it was targeted to the younger techno junkie who likes really cool flashy things, not corporate executives and business professionals. Granted the phone is really fun to play with, I don't associate it with the professional workplace.

I guess a lot of business professionals are kids at heart because a lot fo them use the iphone.
