TiPb Apps #1.4 -- Documents To Go for iPhone to get Google Docs, Desktop Sync (MWC 2010)

We just finished having a sit down with the fine folks from DocsToGo and they shared some exciting news about DocsToGo Premium: Desktop Sync and Google Sync are en route! They expect they'll be submitting the app to the Apple in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for the release. DocsToGo is currently $14.99 in the App Store.

Document Sync with the desktop works just like you would expect it to: plug in and Sync. What's more exciting for me (and for cloud-lovers everywhere) is that you'll be able to sync with all the documents you've stored up at Google Docs. It's a full sync client - meaning that you can download and edit documents offline and then sync them up with Google Docs later. Another thing worth noting is that Google recently updated Google Docs to allow you to upload any file - which means you will be able to upload and store PDFs, images, and documents to Google Docs and then access them later with DocsToGo. (Video after the break!)

Otherwise, as it always is with major mobile conferences, the iPhone isn't officially here but unofficially it's everywhere. My completely unscientific method of "hey, what's in people's hands" poll shows that it's slightly edging out Nokia as the most popular phone at Mobile World Congress.

TiPb on APR Marketplace Discussing Wholesale Application Community vs. iPhone App Store

American Public Radio's Marketplace was gracious enough to have me on yesterday to discuss the new 24 telco Wholesale Application Community with Stacey Vanek Smith.

Can a coalition agree on standards and deploy them fast enough to keep up with Apple's App Store juggernaut, or is this just a play to get trendy, hot apps on low end feature phones?

Apple iPad to Be Sold in AT&T Stores?

Apple iPad to Be Sold in AT&T Stores?

The Boy Genius has been hearing from his AT&T contacts that it is highly likely AT&T will be selling the 3G version of Apple's iPad in their corporate stores across the country.

Don't get too excited thinking AT&T will offer any sort of subsidy because that is simply not in the cards. The rumored plan is that AT&T will be pushing prepaid data plans along with transforming some of the in store netbook display sections into substantial iPad display areas.

Would you prefer to visit an AT&T location over an Apple store to pick up your very own iPad? Sound off in the comments!

Ballmer on Bing as iPhone Default, Google and Apple Still "Stable"

Given the rumors surrounding Apple and Google lately, and the iPhone and Microsoft Bing, it's no wonder Mobile World Congress 2010 has raised both topics again, earning a smile from Steve Ballmer, and yet another "stable" comment from Google.

First up, Reuters has comments from Vic Gundotra, Google mobile engineering lead:

"Apple is a very close and valuable partner and we're very excited about the relationship we have with them today. We have no reason to believe that's going to change." [...] "We don't want to comment on those rumours. We think that relationship is stable."

Windows Phone Series 7 -- Is it Competition for the iPhone?

Microsoft today announced their long anticipated -- possibly long delayed or oft re-started -- Windows Phone Series 7 and showed off a brand new user "experience" including deep social network integration and full on Zune services. (Every Windows Phone is a Zune, but they're not Zune phones -- clear?).

So, after my recent Round Robin Windows Phone review concerns, how did they do? My quick take, after the break!

It would appear that Apple has taken a more agressive approach to certain iPhone hackers by banning their Apple IDs from the iTunes App Store.

iPhone developer/hacker, Sherif Hashim, first received a message on his iPhone after attempting to log into iTunes saying:

“This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons.”
