    Really good post. I had no idea there were this many apps for designers / developers!

    I am usually in front of a computer when I would need these apps so I just ‘Google’ what I am looking for but a lot of these apps are great when I am out and about and I have an idea or have forgotten to do something (like upload a file via ftp).

    Also, things like the cheat sheets and Source Viewer are always handy.

    The size of a cell phone is a very important feature to consider when deciding on one. You must think about how you plan to use the phone. Are you going to be mostly using in the car or carrying it in your pocket all day? This will help you decide the size and weight of the phone that is best for you. If you are going to be carrying it in your pocket all day, of course you will want a phone that is smaller in size.
