    The trouble I'm having with the recurring notifier is . . . there isn't one. Short of scotch taping the iPhone to your forehead, how do you know when a message, any message, comes in.

    As inspiration for this post, I cross-text between my BB and iPhone. After the 15 second cool down period, the BB has it's little purple LED blinking away while the iPhone has it's blank "I'm-too-sexy-for-your-desk" oblivious stare.

    Been looking at the App store every few days (eWallet is out) but nothing yet. Anybody know of anything? I'm not going to be swiping screens every time I walk away from the phone so I have to keep the BB as the prime device and the iP as the Purveyor of Podcasts.

    If you're a dev, I'd be happy to beta for you.

    If you're waiting for a supplemental notification app on the iPhone to show up in the app store, you're gonna be waiting a very long time. To be effective it would need to be run as a background application which Apple strictly forbids at this point.
