    Neat post Lani – I will have to check out this application!

    It is interesting to see how these cloud-based apps are starting to crop up in greater numbers as more and more users become untethered from desktops and wired networks.

    Sure sounds like “the future is mobile” prophesy is coming to pass 🙂
