Mobile Is Where It’s At

29 Jan

(Note: I meant to post this months ago. No surprising, we’re still playing catch up.)

Mobile is huge everywhere else in the world. And the U.S. is playing catch up. But we are starting to see signs of things to come.

GluMobile launched a mobile game called “Dark Night” based on the last Batman movie. Plus, they’re offering 31 wallpapers, 14 voice tones, 4 music tones, and 8 animated screen savers.

FunMobility signed a deal with Sanrio and is bringing Hello Kitty mobile. They’re going to offer wallpapers, etc.

Mig33 is a mobile social network you should get to know.

Google Maps feature mobile transit directions

6 Jun

So Google just posted this video to advertise that Google Maps now feature mobile transit directions.

The video mentions the directions are available in 50 major cities and users can select train, bus, etc. I think when they said train, they’re referring to the subway. If that’s the case, Amtrak Regional and Acela should be get onboard. The directions could list how to get the station and all of the departure and arrival times.

This is huge! Right now mapquest is the 8th most visited site frequented by mobile users. And now that Google offers transit directions, they will probably make the top ten. Maybe even the top three.

So take a look at the video and the Google mobile page to learn more.

Do you use the web differerently on the weekend?

6 Jun

Seriously, do you? Well, according to this article on Business Week people do. People use their mobile devices a lot more on the weekends and as a result, they use the web differently than they do during the work week.

The top websites people visit with their mobile are:

1) Yahoo
2) eBay
3) ?
4) Weather
5) ?
6) ?
7) ?
8) Mapquest
9) Craigslist

What’s interesting is that while these sites are in the top 10 for mobile, many are way down on the list with traditional surfing (home pc).
