Top Android Apps using Mobile
Cloud computing actually means using online services, like Google, Facebook
or Twitter and dozens of new cloud platforms. Realistically speaking, what it denotes is that your PC and mobile apps are
connected to a web application or online service.
So it means this: you get same data and services everywhere
that you go. Like how when you use Twitter on your smartphone, on the PC at the library, or
on your Android phone, it's all the same.
are the best Android apps that I've found for mobile cloud computing.
Mint.com is a free personal finance app you can access online. It securely connects to your bank account,
then lets you see how much cash you have on hand, without having to enter everything in by yourself. It tracks your purchases,
shows you graphs and charts based on your activity, and categorizes things for you -- so if you bought something at Whole
Foods last Wednesday, it automatically marks that down as "groceries," and you can correct it later if you like.
Not only is there a Mint.com app in the Android Market, but there's also a widget and smart folder. The widget shows
exactly how much cash you had last it checked and how much credit card debt you owed, and you can tap the button to refresh
it and get an up-to-the-minute amount. Meanwhile, the Mint.com smart folder lets you see a list of your recent transactions,
plus you can tap one to change its details.
AndroNoter is a dead-simple notetaking app that ties into the
online Simplenote service. You can press a button to save your notes and sync them online, and
then you can view all your notes in the app or by going to their website. There's also a Firefoxplugin that ties into Simplenote, or you can use the Mac notetaking app Notational Velocity to access your notes on your desktop.
Flickr Free is an open-source Flickr
app for your Android phone. It ties into your online Flickr.com account, and lets you view all
your photos and favorites, plus browse for more online. It also lets you upload photos to Flickr
straight from your phone. And it has a very simple interface, that gets out of your way and lets you work with your photos.
The Bottom Line....
You can already go to these websites from your Android phone and use
their services there. That's technically cloud computing. But the best way is to use an app, that runs faster than a website
and is easier to use. Mint.com's Android app is probably the best example, since its widget
runs right on your home screen and is quicker to check than a website.
Hope you all enjoy......cloud farewell,
