I'm talking about those who don't want to have a single App Store app on their iPhone.
I'll take it even further. I like my smartphone without an os.
Am I missing something? How is this spam or troll like? From what I see its just a question. Does anyone NOT have any apps installed? Odd maybe, but just a question.
An utterly random thread. With a BIG Ad for a new app in his sig.
Yeah, I dont see how this question is spam either. One of my friends does this as well.
That's for an iPad app and his question specifically refers to the iPhone. And WTF is so "big" about his link?
He's been a member since 2009 and has over 500 posts. Adding a link in your sig is within the rules of this forum.
I know somebody that's still running iOS 1.1 with no App Store!
Uh. No. I use apps. I've upgraded since iOS 1.
i know someone who hid the appstore because she's afraid she'll accidently get charged. no apps at all. of course.. she's using the iphone like she's using her old motorola razr.....
actually, i know quite a few people who uses their iphones like a feature phone. no apps, no folders.
One of my aunt uses her iphone without any apps; only make calls, take pics, and web browse. Has been doing this for 2 years.
Kinda defeats the smart of smart phone.
What is the point to have iphone without any apps
Some people just don't need them. My mom's only downloaded app is Facebook. All she ever does besides FB, is calls/texts, and emails. And on rare occasions, Safari. There are many people who use their phone in similar fashion.
My other half has had every model of iPhone from release and still has them all in pretty much mint condition and all have never had any app installed on them.
She uses her iPhones (currently a 32gb i5) for calls, texts, email, pictures and listening to music and that's it, it's a device to help her live her life simpler, not take up extra time occupying her on other things.
My 4s only has 3 apps on it, Nav Free, Barclays and MyFitnessPal, as I have much the same perspective
haha. we should totally swap phones for a day, only condition being not able to add/remove apps. i'm sure it'd drive us both crazy!
Still is better for emails and Internet than a feature phone.
maybe enlighten her as to the greatness of some apps?
i bet some people are clueless and dont think they really need things since the phone does what its meant for.
I just think some people don't understand what they can have if they never tried things before.
That was my initial thought as well.
I like my phones like I like my women - covered in apps!
I've got hundreds of free and paid apps--about a third of which are actually on my iPhone at any one time. I kinda went crazy when I got my first iPhone years ago.
I think it's kind of an interesting question, that also made me think about the OOTB apps (some are kind of app/hardware) on an iPhone:
Browser, Email, Messaging, Music, Video, Photos, Camera, Contacts, Reminders, Calc, Weather, Stocks, Notes, Calendar, Voice Recorder, Notes, Compass, Maps ...
It really does a ton of stuff with only OEM apps (especially when you factor in a really solid browser like Safari). I think it would be a fun 30 day challenge to use your iPhone, stock apps only
Many of my apps are alternate UIs for existing web based content like IMDB, Facebook, Twitter, DropBox, Amazon, Wikipedia ... so those could all still be used, though with a less optimal front end. Some services would be stinkers like Podcasts (having to stream through a web front end vs. downloading/sync'ing content), but still doable.
I guess a couple of major things I'd miss would be books (since all eReaders are a need-to-be-installed app) and though it's more for my iPad, a good text editor.
I personally don't do this, and never would. My mother in law on the other hand has one app. She has words with friends. That's it. Her iPhone is for words with friends, phone calls, and texting.
For me apps have little value, I do have a small selection on my ipad for media viewing (i work away 3+ nights per week) and basic photo editing but am yet to experience an app that enriches any part of my life.
I don't use amazon, Starbucks, Facebook, twitter, any other social media etc... And have no interest in gaming in my phone but why should that mean I can't enjoy a seamless integration between my iPhones, ipad, MBA and cars combined with a smooth OS experience??!
