I not so recently did a list of my favourite mobile websites. As I become more and more enamoured with mobile computing I find myself subverting some of the functions I used to perform on my laptop to my mobile device. Including some communication and data management work.
Here is a list of mobile phone applications I find interesting or invaluable. While some of these work well on all platforms, I’m focusing on those that work well with my Nokia N-series device as it’s the phone that I have on hand most often.
- Fring – a service that allows you to connect with friends on Skype, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahoo! and AIM.
- Joikuspot – Joiku lets me share my 3G connection with others by transforming my phone into a wifi basestation. Kills the battery but very useful. I no longer need to do the same with my laptop not do I need to take a separate wifi device.
- Twitter Mobile – I find my mobile to be the perfect device for browsing through my twitter stream. There are some neat apps created for s60 based devices but I find the web interface is all I need.
- Jott – an amazing service that transforms audio messages to text messages.
- Poll Everywhere – Text message voting and polling, group brainstorming, and txt-to-screen graffiti.
- Delicious Mona – news aggregator. Very useful.
- Mobilicious – del.icio.us social bookmarks on your mobile.
- Flickr – I have an installed java app on my Nokia but I prefer the mobile web version.
- Google SMS – Text message your search query to and receive a text message back with the results.
- Google Latitude -The same problem I had with plazes I have with this service; no one I know uses it. For local wayfinding I prefer Nokia maps when the software works.
