Wasn’t gonna post about 9/11 but

by John Wilker in community

I came across this iPhone app (iTunes Link) called 9/11 Numbers that simply shook me to my core.

I can remember very clearly walking into my office in Orange County, seeing some co-workers in the big conference room with one of those TV/VCR carts (didn’t even know we had any) watching TV. It went down hill from there.

These are a few screen captures that jumped out at me, but each number is significant, the app is free, if you ever find yourself forgetting, load it up.

    I’m lucky in that no one I (directly) knew was hurt or killed. My good friend Mindy Troutman was in the city, didn’t work in the towers. A member of the car forum I belonged to at the time was killed.

  1. Hello,

    We would like to present our new application for iPhone. With FastWriting, you will be able to type texts in your iPhone or iPod much faster than usual. FastWriting allows users to add shortcuts for words, sentences or even texts. For example: you (word) and ya (shortcut); yours truly, (sentence) and yt (shortcut); I’ll call you later (sentence) and cyl (shortcut); or How are you? (sentence) and hay (shortcut). You can add as many words, sentences and texts as you want.


    – – Adding, editing and deleting shortcuts.

    – – Browsing words or shortcuts from the dictionary through a text browser.

    – – Adding, editing and deleting notes.

    – – Sending notes by e-mail.

    – – Copying and pasting texts to use them in any other application.

    – – Possibility of applying passwords to the application notes.

    – – Possibility of disabling the automatic replacement of word shortcuts. Once you disable this option, the application will only replace the shorcuts after you confirm this decision by tapping on the screen or pressing space.

    – – Displaying shortcut suggestions as you type. For example: if the word you is registered in the application as ya, when you type y it will appear y+a= you, indicating that the combination may be replaced with the word you.

    We would like to ask you if is it possible to test our application and publish a post about it.
