iPhone users to walk and read at same time
Dogs, kids, manholes protected from captivated users
iPhone users can now walk the streets safe in the knowledge that upcoming letter boxes, errant children or dogshit can be easily avoided, without interrupting the more important act of reading email.
Email 'N Walk is a genuine iPhone application, available for free from developers Phase2 Media, which displays the camera's view of the world behind the email being perused, allowing the multi-tasking user to navigate the mean streets and keep up to date with their electronic buddies at the same time.
Should the summer ever arrive we'd prefer to think that walking is a time for taking in the air, looking around and generally appreciating the world, but if you can't do that without checking your email, then Email 'N Walk is probably a marginally safer way to do so. ®
