iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone

In the last three decades, three tools have changed my life: the Apple Macintosh computer in the late '80s, the Internet in the early '90s, and now the iPhone. Yeah, I know it sounds corny, but it's true. The iPhone is a unique combination of the two tools that empower me -- a personal computer and the Internet -- wrapped up in a small, easy-to-use, intuitive device that I can carry with me practically everywhere I go.

I'm so in love with the way my iPhone empowers me that I want to tell the world about it. Last time I felt this way, I became an author to share my passions (and most of you know where that's lead me). This time I'll be content with a blog. Perhaps the information on this page will make you seriously consider an iPhone. Or maybe you already have one and are looking for help making the most of it on your trip. Then again, maybe you've just seen me carrying my iPhone around everywhere I go and want to know why I'm such a geek. Now you'll know! (And just in case you're worrying about me, I'm not alone in my love for the iPhone -- the iPhone is Time Magazine's "Invention of the Year.")

This blog is the place to get short articles and tips on using the iPhone while travelling. And to demonstrate how amazing the iPhone is, I'll be writing and submitting all of these articles on my iPhone itself, while I'm away from my computer and/or travelling. Please check back for more each day!

Posting Photos Instantly to the Web with iPhone (Method 1: iPhoneSlide + WordPress Blog)

Posted 01-11-2008 at 01:15 PM by Jennifer Marx (iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone)
My most recent trip to Walt Disney World was one of my best! Why? Thanks to my iPhone, I was able to share the experience in real-time with the folks back home through hundreds photos taken on my iPhone. You can view my travel photos -- which I called a "Window Seat" -- at this link: http://ask.passporter.com

I've gotten many requests on how other iPhone users can share their photos immediately like this. So here's the step-by-step method I used on my trip in December 2007:...

My iPhone, I Travel Feature Article

Posted 12-26-2007 at 01:36 PM by Jennifer Marx (iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone)
The December 20 issue of PassPorter News carried a feature-length article on how I use my iPhone when I travel. The article generated many wonderful e-mails (thank you)! Here is the article for your reading pleasure:

iPhone Puts the Internet in Your Pocket

Posted 12-19-2007 at 11:44 AM by Jennifer Marx (iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone)
With the iPhone, you pretty much always have a ready connection to the Internet. The calling packages available through AT&T include unlimited data access, so you can surf the web on your iPhone most anywhere you have cell coverage. And unlike other cell phones I've tried which claim to have web browsing features, the iPhone uses a real browser (a version of Safari) so the web looks the same as it does on a regular desktop computer. Thanks to my iPhone, I can check in on our message boards while...

Lunch Date with my iPhone (WiFi at Eateries)

Posted 12-17-2007 at 02:41 PM by Jennifer Marx (iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone)
Greetings from my local Wendy's eatery, where I'vd stopped for a burger break. I'm delighted to report that I'm able to use Wendy's free wifi network on my iPhone. I'm putting the fast access to good work by browsing http://www.newsoftheweird.com while I enjoy my cheeseburger, chili, and soda. I love to read when I eat alone, but I usually forget to bring reading material along. Thanks, to my iPhone, I always have something to read now.

Free wi-fi access like this is becoming common...

iPhone as a Travel Alarm Clock - Creative Tips

Posted 12-15-2007 at 11:34 AM by Jennifer Marx (iPhone, I Travel: Take Your Trip to the Next Level with iPhone)
You can do some really cool things when you use an iPhone as your travel alarm clock:

Pre-Set Wake-Up Alarms Before You Go
You can set many different alarms and SAVE them for future use. If you were really organized before your trip, you could pre-set the necessary wake-up time for each day of your trip, save it with a custom label (i.e., Dec 10 - Pooh Breakfast), and then just use each alarm on the appropriate day of your trip without having to double-check times. I've never...
