Ratings and Reviews
A great place to start your mobile education
This app is a great if you are someone who knows that you need to get you and/or your business geared up for the present mobile revolution, but have no idea even where to start. The collection of "examples" will help give you ideas as to how implement mobile devices and apps in your business. Plus the glossary will help with all of those words you hear people throw around but have no clue what they mean.
With the caveat that some excerpts of my book are in it, I think they did a great job. The glossary, examples, and resources are really valuable to help understand the space, and the idea starters is a useful tool to spark thinking. Overall a great adjunct to thinking 'mobile' that serves as an example in and of itself.
