Apple launches free MobileMe Gallery iPhone app

Apple launches free MobileMe Gallery iPhone app
Although you can already access MobileMe galleries from an iPhone simply by visiting their URLs, Apple’s new MobileMe Gallery seeks to make them faster and easier to access. The application is free and comes with a very respectable set of features.

Not only can you visit your entire gallery (including password-protected and hidden albums) but you can also view photos and movies published by your friends, access previously-viewed photos even when you don’t have an Internet connection, and e-mail a link to any album from within the app itself.

One of MobileMe users’ oft-mentioned complaints is that many of the service's Web apps can't be used on the iPhone and those that do have iPhone app equivalents don't always provide the full functionality. MobileMe Gallery, f or what it's worth, seems to be a genuine improvement over accessing the gallery via Safari: it's easy to find friends' galleries, pictures load snappily, and there's even a neat scrolling marquee of pictures.

The app supports German, French, and Japanese languages as well as English, and is compatible with any iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS 3.1 or later. The app does, however, require an active MobileMe subscription, even if you just want to view other people's public albums.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
