I think that will cover it.
Well, looking at this post I guess I'm not "ONLY" traveling with an iPhone. It's a nice dream...

To make some nice panorama, I use Photosynth.
To do some basic photo editing, PS Express

When you're outside of cell coverage, put your phone in 'airplane mode', it will save your battery.

Two games I've spent way too much time playing
- Zombie Hwy
- Air Wings

Enjoy your trip!

I know this is an older post, but if you have your phone in a black tank bag/clear window pocket it can overheat your phone. Try putting a white piece of paper in the pocket 1st to reflect the heat...it works!

Some cameras can use Eye-fi memorycards that have built-in wifi. They can connect your camera to a laptop/desktop, smartphone/tablet or upload directly on web services, depending on model.

Not sure if it's been mentioned but if you have iCloud properly setup, you can let every picture you take automatically upload online via Photo Stream anytime there is an Internet connection available (3G/Wifi). Once uploaded, you can delete them from your phone. They are stored online for 30 days. You can access them at home via iPhoto and on your phone whenever you're connected to the Internet.

I am a bit of a geek and used to have a dedicated GPS, blackberry, camera and Netbook with me on anything longer than one night trips. I still take dedicated devices for longer trips, but increasingly, my (non-apple) smartphone allows me to do enough of those things well enough that I just take it. It sure beats carrying an inverter to power the netbook to charge everything else too!

Can't wait till we have drones that can fly behind us filming, fly up out of the valley to get a phone signal to send/recieve your messages, signal for help, give you photos of where you are, etc. I give it 10-20 years.


EDIT: Forgot to say +1 on Tapatalk; great for Advrider on the go (plus any other php forums you frequent).

I brought my iPhone with me on my recent tour. Before leaving I downloaded the NOAA radar weather app. This allowed me to real-time look ahead and adjust my route on a daily basis - very helpful.
The phone was also nice to have for listening to music and I downloaded locations of resources for my particular bike in case I had a problem.
I avoided freeways and spent a lot of time in remote areas but had a cell signal 85% of the time, much of it 3G.
I used a camera and not the phone for photos. For me, there's no comparison.
Tapatalk is a great resource and I used it daily.

Oh and you won't be able to upload those camera pics until you get to a laptop/desktop. If you know a way around this, let me know!


iCloud. Your photos upload every time you're on a WiFi network.
