I recently started using the Desktop app , especially for one reason:
When offline (think laptop, in a place with no wifi), I can edit stuff and it will be saved. (Just need to be extra vigilant about sync ahead of time, lest I get problems syncing later.)
I am now considering to use Safari in my phone instead of the iPhone app. It is updated faster than others, but more significantly it has some very valuable features:
- a built-in back button so I can follow and link and go back
the new multi-select button(nevermind, doesn’t work)
- I notice the action bar is a float, instead of docked to the keyboard.
I’m not sure i prefer either method.Docked is decidedly more usable.
- offline support is less relevant because cell access is virtually universal.
Anybody else have input on the difference between browser and apps? What feature differences motivate you?
