hi gents,

I just wanted to share with all of you that I have just started a book about the "real" Ben Franklin it is full of the facts that you were never taught in school, but I am finding that is more and more the case. Just finish a book called the real George Washington by the same author it is a real eye opener.

Good deal, thanks. I was just making sure that the app didn't need the phone components to work.

What's an iTouch? You mean the iPod Touch? Apps for the iPhone (that don't need phone features) should work just fine.

Would the virtues app work on an iTouch as well?

After having started discussions on each of Benjamin Franklin's 13 virtues, I thought I would begin posting some of his famous almanac quotes as well as quotes from some of his other writings for discussion. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the discussions so far and please feel free to keep the conversations going for the old discussions as well as the new ones.

The iPhone iPod app is OK. It has Franklin's 13 virtues that you can track for a period of time and add your own virtues if you want. There is not a way to offload them into a spreadheet or database right now which is something I would have liked to have seen.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this or not, but iTunes has a 'Virtues' application for sale for the iPhone.
Has anyone purchased this app? Any thoughts?
