• MobileMe Gets an Upgrade : Still No Free Services

    We had expected to see some new features and possibly even a new "Lite" version of bringing the possibilty of some free MobileMe services to users, but unfortunately the update is mostly cosmetic. While it looks pretty, it's not quite what we were hoping for.

    I almost feel as though I somehow got ProSwitcher added to my MobileMe account, with the new "App Like Switcher", somewhat like the image above. Kind of ironic, but I'll take it. Still wish there would have been some new free features for users who have no need to pay $100/year.

    Here are some of the new features.

    Widescreen and compact views.
    - Rules to keep your email organized everywhere.
    - Single-click archiving.
    - Formatting toolbar.
    - Faster performance.
    - Increased security with SSL.
    - Support for external email addresses (new since the beta)
    - Improved junk mail filtering (new since the beta).
    Not like we ever use it, but, Apple has also released an official app for "Find My Phone" one of the features offered to MobileMe users.

    If you lose your iPhone or iPad while on the go, simply install this free app on any other iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to find it. Sign in with your member name and password (MobileMe subscription required) to locate your missing device on a map and have it display a message or play a sound. You can even remotely lock the device to protect your privacy, or wipe it to permanently delete all of your data if you think that it wonít be returned.
