There is an app for just about anything and everything these days. Even back in 2009, a cartoonist for the New Yorker knew what was up. Roz Chast drew "myPhone"—the cartoon marked the iPhone's first appearance in the magazine—for an issue that ran July 27, 2009.

Clearly she knew the direction in which the app game was headed; her predictions were pretty spot on.


Below I've tried to find the most appropriate app from the iTunes App Store to go with each of Roz's cartoon predictions.
