Since I have recently migrated all of my email to GMAIL, I have started looking for things that will enhance the whole experience. Once such tool that I have found is Xoopit.
Xoopit is a website and tool that integrates into your GMAIL interface via a Firefox plugin. It allows you to search and browse attachments and media that exist in your GMail account.
Xoopit installs itself just above your Gmail inbox area. It also allows integration with Facebook, blogs, and other social tools.
Xoopit also will send you email summaries of all photos, files, and videos in your Gmail account.
Another benefit is Xoopit provides Xobni (for Outlook) type information on the sender of the message. This includes all attachments received from the sender as well as quick searches of other emails from that sender.
Dashwire is a free mobile phone contact, photo, video, and text messaging tool. It works on phones running Windows Mobile and symbian OS. It syncs your phones contents to the web and allows you to manipulate the data via a web browser.
I use Dashwire often to answer text messages because I can use the computer keyboard instead of the phone text input â€“ which for me is quicker. I can also update contacts via the web interface with ease.
Other features I use is the ability to view, save, and forward pictures that I take with my phone.
Other things you can do with Dashwire includes seeing a list of all of your conversations (text messages), change the phone ringtone, set up speeddial for your phone, update your Dashwire, Facebook, and / or Twitter status, manage your mobile internet bookmarks, and manage videos you take with your phone.
The best thing is that Dashwire is free.
The only downside to Dashwire (at least on a Windows Mobile device) is that it speeds up battery consumption. This is in part because it is in constant contact with dashwire.com so that the phone and the web site are in sync.
