Despite my thoughts on “Web Apps on Mobile Devices: Yay or Nay?”, there are some great web apps for the iPhone or iPod Touch that you definitely might consider trying out. With the power of the internet and the ease of multitouch on the iPhone, web apps certainly have a lot to offer, especially with today’s advancing web technologies.
I’ve rounded up 25 of the best web apps for the iPhone, many of which are my personal favorites. And, of course, be sure to add yours to the list by leaving a comment at the end.
Although it’s part of my job to stay current in the world of web apps, it’s also a passion of mine. I love the web, cloud-based computing and all the exciting possibilities it holds for the future. However, I’m not exactly enthralled with web apps on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. But, why not?
Let’s take a look into the wonderful world of mobile web apps, shall we?
As we’ve stated many times before, web apps are growing in popularity and increasingly taking over their desktop counterparts. Google Documents is now widely used for text, presentation and spreadsheet documents, even though it doesn’t offer the extensive features desktop apps usually do. SlideRocket is a great example of an extensive presentation web app that arguably rivals desktop apps.
Personally, I use Google Docs when I actually need to use a normal document editor but otherwise I actually use Coda, TextEdit or another basic markup/text editor. However, I still have desktop apps installed for those times I need to view or edit documents sent by other people. They just don’t convert well in my experiences so I’ve stopped trying.
What about you? Do you want to get away from being stuck to the desktop? Have you already? Or maybe you think web apps for office documents are evil and shouldn’t be used at all? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and, while you’re at it, let us know what apps you use for your office documents. Thanks!
