I've grabbed an app for my first gen iPod touch, with the idea that sometimes I might -- might -- want to update LJ this way. Which is how these things work of course. I have similar apps for Facebook and Twitter.

I suppose it would be different if I had an iPhone, since then access would be allegedly ubiquitous. As it stands, I have all these things against the mythical time when I have a wifi connection and my backpack (which is where I carry my touch) but not my computer.

Ah well. I can always fall back on geek excuse #4 -- but it was free...!

Well, I always carry my PDA in my shirt pocket (in fact, I no longer buy shirts without pockets, mostly because of this). I don't always carry my EEE around with me. I actually could sort of access LJ via my PDA at one point, but I couldn't log in because the built-in browser couldn't handle the authentication code.

So, once I finally replace my Tungsten (probably with some variety of iPod Touch), I'd certainly be in positions where such an app would be useful. :)

If you lose computer access due to a black-out, being able to use an iPhone keeps one able to make updates.

You'd just have to meander around a bit more looking for wifi, that's all.

Now, if only there were a LJ app that logged you into LJ, and you could make comments on it, etc.! Having to type in my PW, which is a relatively long and secure one, is a bit of a pain.

It boggles my mind that there's no app that lets you read your friend list. LJ APP YOU ARE SO LIMITED

LJ may not have an api that supports this. Shiny new iPhone dev kit in hand, I shall have to investigate. Maybe.

But there is one.

It's called "Mobile Safari." I gather it comes with your device.

(Also, you can apparently create an RSS feed of your friends page using these instructions ( and sync it to NetNewsWire via NewsGator.) ( ()

But apps have a nicer interface and are much less squinty initially. Also thanks for the link, but you need a paid account for those instructions to work. Disaster!

I carry my own iPod Touch in a "fanny pack" (I don't know why they call it that given that I keep it on the front of my waist, not my back, but still), along with my Nokia 770 and my cell phone. It's with me pretty much everywhere I go. I have the LJ app on it myself, but don't use it much. But then, I don't use LJ much in general anymore; I largely just twitter.

I'm thinking I'd actually rather like to get an iPhone of some stripe come December when my contract expires. Have to see what the ones that come out in June look like.
