Usable Web Apps on Mobile Devices

Usable Web Apps on Mobile Devices
Twitter.com https://twitter.com – I cannot stress how good this app is on mobile browsers. I’ve been using Twitter since 2012 and I’ve been using smart phones exclusively since 2016. I’ve never had to download the mobile app (from the Google Play Store or the Apple App store) although I’ve wanted to to see what it was like. Twitter.com on Chrome for Android or Safari for iOS just works. Search works, direct messages (private messages) work, and it’s fast.

Facebook.com https://facebook.com – Again although I knew there was a Facebook mobile app for Android and iPhone I never needed to download it. And again I’ve felt like doing at times because it offers more features than the website does. One time I wanted to watch a Live video and Facebook.com on my Android phone was telling me that I needed to download the app to watch it. I went and just watched it on YouTube on the TV. Pretty much everything I said about Twitter.com on your phone or tablet is true for Facebook.com except you can’t read or send private messages—you need the Messenger app for that. In fact I think the only way to access Facebook private messages on a phone is the through the Messenger app. I could be wrong; maybe you can use Buffer or a similar app.

Web of Trust https://www.mywot.com/
WorkFlowy https://workflowy.com/
and Google Keep https://keep.google.com/ are also good in a mobile browser like Safari for iOS (iPhone or iPad) or Google  Chrome for Android or iOS (iPhone or iPad)

I write so my words and story can last longer than me. My name is Debrezion; I’m also known as Derezion, Dee or Azen. I always know where I’m at by what people call me. I enjoy church, using computers, and of course writing. I’ve been to Ethiopia twice. I was reared in California, USA but my parents are from Ethiopia. I’m lucky to be alive and I should thank God for that.
