    Thumbs up How people use iPhone?

    iPhone is used by millions of people for basic communications and listening to music. you would be surprised to see how some people use it to spice up their productivity and also to get an edge and protect their own properties and life. Following is story excerpt copied and pasted from

    When Jim Dexter suits up to fly Eureka, one of the three Zeppelin airships in the world, he tucks iPhone into his pocket. It’s his go-to device for flight planning, weather reports, and keeping in touch with the ground crew. “It’s a huge leap in technology,” he says.

    Dexter brings over 30 years of flight experience to his job as Director of Operations for Airship Ventures, a young California company founded by husband-and-wife team Brian and Alexandra Hall. In the heart of Silicon Valley, the Halls have introduced a little bit of adventure: a giant airship that makes tours around the San Francisco Bay.

    In the air and in the office, Airship Ventures turns to iPhone for almost every aspect of their business. For the pilots, it begins with flight planning using aviation apps downloaded from the App Store. “I can pull up sectional charts,” Dexter says. “If I hear that we have a new operational requirement to go to, say, Long Beach, I can pull up the map for Long Beach on the iPhone. And that helps me plan the trip.”

    Weather reports, of course, are mission-critical for flight. “I use AeroWeather to access aviation weather forecasting on the iPhone,” Dexter says. “It’s important to know what the wind is doing each hour.” His weather app also gives him the Terminal Area Forecast, a wind report for any airfield he might be flying into. “That’s extremely useful for a Zeppelin pilot.”

    To help operate the Zeppelin, Dexter uses iConvert, an application that can toggle between metric and English measurements. “The Zeppelin is a European aircraft, and the figures are in metric,” he says. “With iConvert, I can go from kilograms to pounds and inches of mercury to millibars.”

    Pilot Katherine Board, the only female Zeppelin pilot in the world, uses iPhone to consult the FAA website, which, among other things, broadcasts temporary flight restrictions. “We can look up whether there might be a restriction around a stadium, or an area where there’s a presidential visit,” she says.

    Blogging from 1200 feet

    When they first got iPhone, Co-Founders Brian and Alexandra Hall knew they would use it to help run their business. But they were surprised to discover that it can be a powerful marketing tool. They’re big fans of the camera on iPhone, which allows them to post photos on their blog from the air.

    “One of the best things about the iPhone has been the ability to blog as things happen,” Alexandra says. “So when we’re on the airship, and something cool happens, I can use the iPhone camera to capture it and email it straight to our blog. And that instantaneous connection we have now with our customers is really valuable.”
