    Wow, that's quite an accomplishment! One of my favorite and most-used apps on the phone, for sure.

    Good news for sure, hoping for a WM version sometime (maybe after WM7) and then they will have quite a catalog of programs for mobile devices.

    I used the app on my iPhone exactly once- the day I installed it. I keep it just in case I am in a bank while it is getting robbed and hostage situation arises. :)

    I know Apple and Google are the kings of marketing, but believe it or not there are more smartphones being made with Symbian OS on them than either of those two. Will we be getting an app soon?

    We have a "Where's my App?" thread right over there -----> Click

    Please reserve this thread for discussion of the 1 million iPhone App downloads.

    Congrats to DIRECTV and the development team. This is definitely one of my favorite apps on my iPhone.

    I have it on the home page. I use it frequently just to search the evenings programs rather than the HR's guide, I think it's faster:)

    This is why DirecTV chose to develop for the iPhone first. Can't blame them, just makes me sad to be on the losing end. :(

    There's no reason to believe that if they made it for the Blackberry first (which out numbers Apple's phones by a ton), they wouldn't have had the same downloads in the same (or less) time.

    I started developing apps for Symbian almost a decade ago. After much expense, and despite the apparent market size, sales didn't even cover the cost of the space on the website. Same story for Windows Mobile. Different story for the iPhone, though. Only thing I can figure is the ease of use. You can't beat the iPhone for its user interface.

    Sure there is. Everyone I know that has an iPhone is app crazy and downloads a ton of them. When you meet with someone that has an iPhone, the first thing you do is compare apps.

    I am the only user of a Blackberry that I know that has even attempted to download apps and I know plenty of Blackberry users.

    Different culture. Different marketing. Different customer base. (The iPhones are much more consumer driven while Blackberry is much more business driven.)

    I guess we'll agree to disagree. Most Blackberry users I know download apps.

    Didn't apple pass 3 billion downloads a while back? Is the number of Blackberry app downloads anywhere close to that? My guess is not. The whole iPhone culture revolves around downloading apps.
