Google Apps Prettied Up for iPhone

Google Hearts iPhone

Here at Smartphone Experts we use gmail for our main email and also use Google Apps Premier for our documents. Looks like we can add to the list of things that the iPhone excels at, business-wise: Google Apps. That list, by the way, is coming up shortly as a Wait-a-Thon post.

Meanwhile, if you, like us, use Google for business, your iPhone is now a great tool for that business:

Google has produced a new, generalized iPhone interface for its Google Apps suite of web applications. [...] To access the new interface, people should visit "" in Safari, where "" is replaced with a user's actual account domain. The new interface is currently only available for the English-language version of the Apps website. - [ipodnn]

Google's iPhone fixation continues apace. With any luck at at all, the release of the iPhone 2.0 software will mean that iPhone users will be able to catch up with Windows Mobile users and be able to install and use Google Gears, Google's offline app platform.

Update: Oh yeah, per the Google Blog, their stuff is now available in 33 countries and Google News' iPhone interface is now sweetness too.

Google Apps Prettied Up for iPhone

Google's smart. They see the web uptake of the iPhone and they support the heck out of it to connect with all the higher end users while simultaneous prepping Android to swoop in and try and take the commodity market (which should all pretty much be smartphones of various input-ability very shortly anyway). They get top-tier designer chic with Apple (on whose board Google's CEO sits), and down home folksy low-end spread as well.
With their hopes that local search will be an unprecedented goldmine, and the possibility to start using the net cloud to harvest data as well as supply it, scale not only provides economy but leverage.
Smart bunch of guys and gals...
