    Best app so far! (Pinch to zoom browser and 100x faster internet)

    Its called PhoneMyPC.
    lets you log into your home PC and control everything.
    So you use your home internet instead of your phones browser.
    It has pinch to zoom and connects faster than the phone can get to a single webpage.

    only problem (other than the $10 cost) is video playback. Its a little choppy even with quality set to low. Still watchable.
    Ill probably never use the phones browser again, maybe for videos.

    That is a very cool looking and functional app! Only thing that worries me is they do not have SSL activated until the beta is complete.

    How would this result in a faster web experience?

    Your now needing to forward a graphic, instead of the HTML content...
    HTML will use far less bandwidth....

    yeah, i agree.
    you are essentially streaming video from your desktop to your phone, in no way is this faster.

    have you tried it?
    I say its faster.
    you get a new video frame every ~1/2 sec, if your home internet is broadband then you only have to wait 1-2 sec for every page. How is the phone ever going to be that fast? even on wifi?
    I just tested my fav website. 16 sec for phone browser, 4 sec for PhoneMyPC.

    You would really have to try it to believe it. I am still in shock at how sweet this app is. Not that it would ever replace my normal behavior (at least I don't think it would), but it is really impressive. The refresh rate is nearly instant as there is no real apparent lag when typing or anything, so if your computer can resolve the page faster, then you WILL see that result in near real time through the phone. The behavior is a bit cumbersome however as it is no longer optimised for a device as small as the phone, but sweet none the less. I will certainly use this as a tool to show off pics of the family, send a file that is only on my PC when I am not in front of it, etc... Flash works perfectly as well. Hopefully it only gets better

    IIRC, the developer of this app reads this board, so maybe he/she can pipe up. I'm definitely interested, if there's any more personal reviews please post!
