I’ve been blogging about how to make money with iphone applications.  You can see the related links below in fact.

Well, today I ran across something that would make an EXCELLENT iphone application. Go ahead, steal the idea. I don’t have time to do anything with it today anyway. In fact if you make one let me know so I can use it.

There’s a great site called 3 Buck Bites

It lets you find places that sell good food for $3.99 or less… cheap eats in other words.

As soon as I saw it, I thought, this would make one heck of an iPhone application.

Just ‘cuz you have an iphone doesn’t mean you don’t want cheap eats. You’ve got to cut corners somewhere to pay for that phone and all the applications you’re getting addicted to!

Anyway, this site concept is cool, but it’d be even better if it were a downloadble iPhone app you can put to use when you’re looking for food, your stomach is gnawing at you and there’s no computer screen in sight!

What makes doing such an app more doable for YOU is that this site uses publicly available feeds from citysearch.com.

Why couldn’t you? Or hire it done?

Of course, it only handles a few major cities. But these are cities with lots of hungry iphone users!

    Chuck,

    If 3 Buck Bites is already on the web then it is accessible thrui the iPhone, so you don’t really need a separate application.

    In fact, any web based service is in effect an iPhone application.

    Rich,

    You don’t seem to get it.

    Just because a website is accessible by internet doesn’t mean it’s not a great potential idea for an Iphone application!

    That’s where the creativity of the application developer comes in to set it apart from the experience one would receive just by going to a website.

    But I’m glad you mentioned this. It cuts down on the competition for app development if they think it’s unnecessary.

    It’s like saying we don’t need Coke because we have Pepsi!
