Its good to finally write about a native iPhone app as things on the iPhone hacking front seems to have slowed down quite a bit with the launch of the official native iPhone apps via Apple’s Appstore just round the corner.
Couple of clever developers from the University of South Florida have created a native iPhone application to remotely operate iRobot’s Packbot unit (that is one of the robots the US military is apparently using for surveillance/urban intelligence gathering operations in Iraq and Afghanistan).
So you might not be trying this out but like the native iPhone app developed to control Unmaned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and iPhone Lego NXT Robot, an iPhone app developed by Battlebricks to use the iPhone as a remote to control a Lego Mindstorms Rover, this application falls in the very cool category of native iPhone apps.

I don’t think you will try out this app developed by a team of professors and students from the University of California, Berkeley which is being used to give instructions to unmaned aerial vehicles (UAVs) just like iPhone Lego NXT Robot, an iPhone app developed by Battlebricks to use the iPhone as a remote to control a Lego Mindstorms Rover.
But still you might want to checkout the YouTube video after the jump to see how they are using the iPhone.
The feature that I really missed in the iPhone and before that the iPod was a radio and hence the native iPhone application I am really excited about is Time Warner’s AOL Radio app which will let iPhone owners listen to over 350
