Apple posts two new iPhone 3G ads [Updated]


Apple has posted two new iPhone 3G television ads online. Both new ads, “Read” and “Fix,” repeat the phrase “There’s an app for that” while highlighting various third-party iPhone applications. “Read” highlights restaurant resource and review app Yelp, medical imaging app OsiriX, and the book reading app Classics, while “Fix” focuses on taxi-finding app Rocket Taxi, tip calculator Tipulator, and the accelerometer-based leveling tool MultiLevel. Both commercials are available for viewing now on Apple’s website.

Update: Apple has posted a third iPhone 3G ad, “Check.” Similar in format to “Read” and “Fix,” “Check” features the ski and snowboard condition app SnowReports, the nutritional and diet helper app Lose It!, and the car park reminder app G-Park. It too is available for viewing on Apple’s website.

There are a bunch of taxi apps floating around these days. Before this ad I hadn’t heard of rocket taxi, but I used taxi magic. Does rocket taxi allow you to setup the rides without calling, or does it just find nearby taxi cos.?

shedyed, Rocket Taxi supports numerous countries, over 10000 cities and 17500 taxi companies. It finds taxi companies around you and sorts them by distance and rating. I use it for weeks and it takes about 5 seconds to get results. Apple is not stupid. If they chose Rocket Taxi then they must think that it’s worthy enough to be showed in a tv ad!
