Online on the go: My mobile web apps

I got hooked on to GPRS a couple of days back. (The Inside story: Hutch sends me an offer waiving their 50 bucks GPRS activation charge and the recurring 50 bucks a month rental, and activated GPRS for me. Maybe because I was a high-volume customer! The catch was that I would have to pay a rupee per 100kb of data transfer. Seemed decent to me, and I fell for it. PlanetHutch sucks though!)

And man, am I loving it! All those boring bus journeys are becoming so much more interesting! Here are the web apps that I am hooked on to these days on my mobile:

  • Gmail: As usual it rocks on the web too!
  • Twitter: The full power of Twitter is when you can twitter on the go. Kickass!
  • GoogReader: Reading feeds on a long long journey. Peace!
  • Facebook: This is why Facebook sells(will sell) more than Orkut. Imagine voyuering around on profiles when you're bored!
  • Zook: An upcoming local search engine. Pretty neat! Caught a preview in Barcamp Bangalore 3.
  • GCal: Though, 30boxes comes a close second, I prefer Gcal because of its SMS alerts.
  • Rememberthemilk: Lovely to-do list functionality: Don't use it much, but still, love it!
Tsk...Tsk...Do you use a kickass mobile app? Tell me.

Wow! One in every 11 people logging on to the web across the world through mobiles turning out to be an Indian (9% of the world mobile web users!), reports Rediff.
And for the record, I browse on a lowly Nokia 3100. Damn.

Update 1: GCal and 30boxes, both don't allow me to edit an event's time on my mobile. Atleast 30boxes allows me to delete an event and add a new event in place of it.

Update 2: Made a mobile-friendly homepage for myself.
