    Google Applications work really well from the web!

    I made launcher bookmarks to Gmail, Reader, Google Talk, Docs, Calendar and News. The mobile versions look really great on the Pre! They are very usable.

    I now get my email alerts from the main email application but use the Web email to read it etc.. The calendar is also really nice, allowing Day and Month view. You can still toggle what calendars are visible.

    I am impressed. I am sure they were formatted for the iPhone but the Pre works great as well!

    I just wanted to let you guys know and maybe give them a try!

    Of course I know Calendar syncs ii
    Some people have problems when they create new events etc.. This is 100% ii

    The Google chat indeed works very well with the built in Pre app.

    I was just saying that the on-line versions work really really well. I like the Email web version better than the Pre's client. The other services like reader etc... Have no pre equals as of yet.

    If you use Google Calendars as your primary calendar then it's actually a great (superior?) alternative to the Pre Calendar. Its quick, easier to read and offers a better month view that includes daily agenda.

    I use all the others as well and they are all useful man. I also like that you can change between them without opening a new web card if you like.

    Don't use them, I will.

    Indeed to each his own. Thanks for the heads up 1Paladin. I'll check it out and see which version is better for me.

    The only thing I notice is when you delete an email etc.. you have to hit the refresh button. It is not auto-refreshing for some reason. This is such a small thing, it does not bother me.

    Here's a Google Reader tip: Use the iPhone version: http://google.com/reader/i/ It's beautiful on this phone and much better than /m which is just text based.

    not to sound stupid, but could someone post the links to the mobile versions of these google pages? (thanks for the reader link lawilson2 )

    also, is there a way to add bookmarks to the launcher?

    edit: nevermind, I figured the links out, and how to add to the launcher. haha, I'm a bit tired. i need some sleep.

    I was talking about the portable versions of the apps to begin with! ii

    My phone went to those versions automatically except for igoogle but I loaded that from within the app and got its mobile version as well.

    Man the more I use these the better I like them. The news reader is cool. The thing I like the best is you set it all up on the web as to what feeds etc.. The pre just sees it.

    You can also read them from the web directly. Everything stays in sync and no extra stuff to set up.... I could never see using a stand alone RSS reader again as I would have to add everything in al over again etc..... this is much nicer....

    THIS is is the way to go IMHO.
