Can't whistle for cab on iPhone in GTA

I posted a comment on the thread, but i felt i had to repeat this..

The iPhone cannot compete with the... DS.. for a MICROPHONE based aspect.

A device which is used for phone calls, voice memos, and god knows what else.

Rockstar obviously thought that iPod touches don't have in-built microphones, (even though the new ones come with mic-headsets)

So why bother?

That decision = fail, but what can you do? It's not exactly a huge aspect of gameplay.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Well it is $10 cheaper than the DS version, so who's complaining?

hold you finger at the top of the screen to the right of the mini map ypu need to hold it there for at least five seconds and be close to a cab with its roof light on
