Adobe Flash Support Coming to iPhone, Ending YouTube Envy

What feature request has been on the lips of every iPhone user since the idolized gadget first came galloping out the gate? I'll give you a hint, it starts with the letter "F", and is the same thing your inebriated Uncle Frank does at family get togethers after knocking back one too many martinis. Of course, I'm talking about Flash.

GearLive claims that Apple will be announcing Adobe Flash for WebKit (aka mobile Safari). There have been rumors to this effect for some time, but with the blessed arrival of the much anticipated SDK now only days away, this seems plausible. Still, I wouldn't start bookmarking YouTube.com on your iPhone just yet. Let's wait for Apple make this rumor a reality.

Mozilla Responds to iPhone

It seems that Mozilla has finally acknowledged the need for a mobile browser on the mozilla codebase that isn't wreteched. PC Advisor reports that the mozilla foundation will be putting resources towards a mobile browser. And they didn't act until now on the mobile browsing kit on the iPhone, 3 months after WebKit shines on the iPhone. To add insult to injury, Nokia has been using Apple's WebKit, the browsing engine that powers Safari on the iPhone, instead of anything based off of Mozilla's code, though Nokia also has a mozilla-basbed browser on their N800 tablet.

Mundu IM: iPhone Edition, Chat Till Your Thumbs Bleed

Mundu has a long pedigree in the world of business-class mobile instant messaging software. I have used their Mobile Messenger client on PalmOS and Windows Mobile - it works like magic. So it didn't take long for their developers to show some iPhone love.

The company has announced a web based service that fully supports iPhone, via Safari of course (we've heard this line before). To access the web client simply point your iPhone to iphone.mundu.com. Login to any existing IM accounts (Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, or Windows Live Messenger protocols supported), and text your way to repetitive stress injury.

The service is in beta, so don't look surprised when Safari chokes and drops you back to the homescreen.

Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone

InfoWorld pits three reigning Smartphones against the iPhone, comparing the browser experience of each platform. The verdict: Safari wins. Color me shocked.

This was a foregone conclusion. Mobile web browsers are simply crap compared to iPhone. I speak from experience as a Smartphone aficionado, having used every platform under the sun. None of the devices referenced in this article delivers even a remotely comparable experience to Safari.

iPhone includes a real web browser - a desktop web browser. Not the toy browsers you'll find on PalmOS, Blackberry or Windows Mobile, that render webpages through a paper shredder, producing a mangled stack of images and text.

Plusmo Announces iPhone Support, Plus a Buttload of Widgets

What better way to waste spend your time than downloading thousands of Widgets, slideshows, gamecasts, and feeds right on your iPhone. Plusmo offers a very simple iconic web frontend that delivers easy access to online content, suited for mobile devices. It works very similar to another online mobile content service called Widsets.

Plusmo goes a bit further my creating a homescreen-like interface and enabling web content developers and bloggers (that would be me) to create one-click publishing links that allow users to quickly subscribe to your mobilized content.

And like so many other Web 2.0 services...this one is free!

Chapura Announces FoldedMirror for iPhone

Chapura has added a new application to its product lineup, called FoldedMirror. What this application does is enable iPhone users to connect with Outlook Calendar and Contacts folders right from their device, by mirroring data created on a PC running Microsoft Outlook. A host PC is required, with Outlook running at all times, in order for this process to work. FoldedMirror doesn't come cheap, however. A single user license will set you back $49.95. Ouch!

I haven't yet put this software to the test since I already use a hosted Exchange account but it looks very promising. You can read the full press release here.

Find the Nearest Bar or Brothel With Earthcomber

Earthcomber is an interesting location-based service that bills itself as a "personal radar", providing an organized list of events and entertainment in relation to where you are. Just type mobile.earthcomber.com on your iPhone (Earthcomber will work with ANY web capable mobile phone) and Earthcomber's server will detect your locale. From there you are provided with category-based list of services such as Food, Music, Movies, Recreation & Sports, Adult Entertainment, etc.

The service works really well, based on my own testing. Not only did it correctly identify various entertainment venues in my area, I was even provided with basic mapping and driving instructions as well.
