    Hey! can't we get a freakin precentral app? I mean most of us are on here like at least an hour a day. If I could get my precentral on the road that would be better. thanks.

    the mobile site is alright m.precentral.net but it really isn't like an iphoneish mobile site, it's just a mobile site which one would probably see on any mobile phone (ie very limited and basic looking) would love an app with more features. Even drew up a moc up a while back and seemed to have a team going on it, but that project as died and haven't heard a word about it. Sad really.

    Agreed, I'd prefer an app over the mobile site.

    I would love a precentral app with a clean look feat. Notifications. Then I wouldn't have to check the mobile site every ten minutes! Lol its funny cause its true.

    I don't understand this myself, but I'm sure it may be in the works soon

    The idea of an official PreCentral app (think engadget-esque) with an beautiful interface and blog notifications is tantalizing.

    But if there is an app, then the users will go to the website less frequent, which means less advert $$. Thats my personal opinion as to why there is not one. I wish there was though, and notifications would rock with it!

    I'm pretty sure I recall hearing the group of smartphone central websites make a significant amount of their revenue from the sales of merchandise their specific online stores drive.

    and for what it's worth, we were teased with a precentral app all the way back in september.

    Regarding surfing the mobile site, I do get a lot of "page not found" errors as well as reloads that only draws up the current screen and no scrolling is posible - as if the page was no larger.

    Quite often when I then resort to the "full version", the content (text) is messed up. This has also happened a few times while I've been visiting on my portable ...

    I guess I'm a little fuzzy on why an "app" is needed. What would it do for you that m.precentral.net doesn't?

    If this kind of thing is why iPhone's have 15000 "apps", then I'm not particularly concerned about the difference in numbers.

    I suppose its just personal preference but I'm more concerned with getting things like HanDBase and DocumentsToGo ported rather than apps for something that can be done well enough on the web.

    No flames pls Just expressing a view..

    Whilst I agree with you around DocsToGo etc. I think the engadget app shows why if implemented properly it can work, although you could argue that a better mobile site would suffice ... It would be nice to browse PreCentral with a nicer interface you would think that if any site was going to have a WebOS app it would be this one ;)

    you really are looking at it from the wrong side of the glass.
    the reason for a lot of software and technology falls into three categories:
    1. add functionality.
    2. improve functionality.
    3. refine the experience.

    a precentral app would be similar to the engadget app. it would provide a better, more native and seamless experience.

    so instead of looking at something and asking,"why change it?" you should be asking,"why not?"

    and for what it's worth, unless the precentral folks kidnap the coders and graphic designers behind HanDBase and/or DocsToGo to create the app for them, this isn't something that's going to affect you negatively.

    Yes!! And +1 to the notifications as well! Just the thought of it is getting me all excited.
