Yes, but even in the 21st century computers have consoles that are needed to check the status of jobs, answer messages, etc.

I really don't think the iPhone app is going to be all that useful for doing heavy duty 5250 interactions. I know the Windows Mobile version wasn't.
What it was good for, however, was basic console operations ... nothing heavy duty.

Modernization is a good thing ... but there's always going to a place for simple operations.
