Google Mobile Apps

Google applications are very useful I use them so much in my daily life. Such as Google Maps which I often use before making a journey when I?m not sure where the place is. With the mobile apps I don’t need to do this as I can see exactly where I am using Google maps it finds my location for me I can make use of maps in the normal way, search get directions and even use street view which is incredible.

The Applications on offer are as follows (on my Blackberry):

  • Mail
  • Maps
  • News
  • Reader
  • Calendar
  • Docs
  • Photos
  • Sync
  • Notebook

I've only tried out the maps app which works incredibly well I've no doubt the other apps will work as easily well.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
