Webscape - practical writing on a mobile phone


Kate Russell gives her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

SUGARSYNC (www.sugarsync.com)

Sugarsync.com is a cloud storage service which syncs your documents to any web-connected computer or smartphone.

You can share files with invited collaborators - the software is certainly much easier to set up than a home network.

Sugarsync has the benefit of an incremental changes feature which means any tweaks made will not require the whole file to be uploaded again.

THICK BUTTONS (www.thickbuttons.com)

This free app changes the size of the keyboard buttons on a touchscreen handset depending on what you are typing.

Thickbuttons.com is an Android app, and the nearest found for the iPhone is Shapewriter.com

It lets you write in broad sweeps across the virtual keyboard instead of little taps - predictive programming assesses the word you are trying to write by the movement of your finger.

ITYPE2GO (www.xcoolapps.com/iType2Go.html)

Fun app iType2go enables iPhone users to see what's ahead through the camera while typing on the virtual keyboard.

But I certainly would not recommend composing an e-mail as you walk along the high street.
