I wonder if I am the exception here ..
Like many people I am addicted to gmail and love it
so much so that I use it on my blackberry(as a downloadable app or in browser mode)
Is this an exception?
What does it say for mobile applications? i.e. if I have an excellent web application .. people will want to use it on the phone .. rather than get a phone specific app
Having said that, gmail interface on the phone is excellent .. so thats another indication .. maybe online apps will need lots of ui people for mobile?
I was also intrigued by the fact that I am ignoring the best function of the blackberry (push email) in favour of gmail and using the device as a glorified keyboard. This does favour the SAAS theory(software as a service which is supported by Cloud computing and is device agnostic)
PS: William Volk says that he also uses GMail via the iPod Touch email app, also gets his corporate mail (POP) this way.
So, I dont feel so wierd any more!
Interesting to see any other views ..
