Apple introduces an evolved MobileMe service for its users

There are quite a lot of fans that Apple has gathered in the past decade because of its  unquestionable contribution to the smart phone industry. These fans are the ones who shout and cheer every single announcement that Steve Jobs makes. if you are one of them then here is your chance to cheer and shout again.


Apple has announced new and improved MobileMe software for its upcoming releases. However, whether the new iPhone 4 has this new feature or not is unknown at this moment. The MobileMe is the same software that was known by the name of iTools till the year 2000. This software is actually a subscription based collection of online web software services.


This software suite integrates services like Address book, Calendar, iDisk, iWeb, iChat, Aim and the Mobile Mail Beta. The new release from Apple incorporates improvements on many of the existing software in the suite and, some new software is also added to the suite.


The feature for tracking your lost smartphone from your other Apple device and vice versa has been incorporated in the software suite and this feature is called the iTrack. The E-mail via MobileMe has also been upgraded with widescreen and compact views for the iPad and iPhone, respectively. Apple has added single-click archiving and new rules to keep email organized across devices.


In addition to this the website for MobileMe has been upgraded and improved with a better looking interface and login screen.  Another key service provided is the online file sharing using which the user can synchronize data on his Mac OS or iPhone. The other improvements include full screen map view, better support for SSL and better internet security. The annual cost of the service was $99 for the US previously and is expected to remain the same for the improved version as well.


However, the test service provided by the company has encountered a lot of problems including non-detection of the devices on the iTrack app and workability of the site. If we leave these things apart the company has provided the much needed improvements to its services and has to be credited for  that.
