Shozu has been around for a while; what more can I say about it?
Vox was a pleasant surprise; simple to use and with access key functionalities, it is really easy to use! You can post to your blog from your phone; you can change settings, you can post photos; and you can do all of this and more on the website.
Opera Mini 3 was a great discovery. They have really made it simpler to use, and the user experience is great – they customize a website for a phone browser very effectively, long rows of links are put under a compact link; the feed-reader (Bloglines) is fantastic; even my inktales blog renders beautifully on it.
GMail for mobile is my latest favorite to use. It’s a Java application that you can download and install on your phone. There are keyboard shortcuts, pages are rendered to give nearly the same experience if not better than a desktop. You can be automatically signed in if you choose; so you don’t have to painfully enter your user-name & password every time. It helps me keep in touch on the go! Truly mobile 🙂
Screenshots – what a life saver this one is! I only wish I could afford to buy it – my 15 day trial period is over a long time back! Simple and really useful if you work in the mobile domain.
So let’s hope in 2007 we have some more killer apps like these! And I hope I can design some like them!
