My most anticipated (announced) iPhone applications

I don't know about you but I'm counting the days until 11 July so that I can get my mitts on iPhone firmware 2.0 and the App store.

I don't know about you but I'm counting the days until 11 July so that I can get my mitts on iPhone firmware 2.0 and the App store.

Jailbroken iPhones are fun but I can't wait to go legit. I've already got a few favorite iPhone applications based on early descriptions and screen shots that have surface since WWDC.

Mobile NetNewsWire (pictured) – A real RSS client for iPhone with offline viewing, and it happens to be based on my favorite desktop client. Ars Technica got a first look.

OmniFocus – The best GTD application on the Mac will be the best GTD application on the iPhone. Period. OmniFocus for iPhone will synchronize with a Mac via .Mac or WebDAV live, automatically, over EDGE, 3G or WiFi and it's location aware. An Apple Design Award (ADA) winner.

Twitterific – IconFactory's Craig Hockenberry got the ADA for his iPhone Twitter client which I can't wait for. Ars Technica got a hands on at WWDC.

eBay – While I'm not a huge eBay junkie, I certainly use it and love it. I really love the Web-based iRibbit (which I reviewed on 23 July 2007) but a native application will probably be a bunch faster and (hopefully) can store things for offline viewing.

AOL Radio – Music streams from over 200 AOL and 150 CBS radio stations with a clean interface. "AOL Radio is like an FM tuner for your iPhone." Another ADA Winner that looks extremely promising.

TypePad Mobile – The TypePad iPhone blogging client announced at WWDC also shows a ton of promise. I just hope that works with WordPress and Movable Type like BlogIt does.

What about you? What are you most anticipated announced iPhone apps?
