Facebook & Tumblr Are the Kings of Mobile
MG Siegler, TechCrunch
I use my phone far more than I use a computer these days. If you’re not already, soon, you’ll be doing the same. Yes, a huge part of this is that it’s a device that is always with you. But recently, there’s something else I’ve noticed too.
For a few services out there, I far prefer to use their apps instead of their websites. What’s interesting is that I don’t mean service that only exist as mobile apps or were built to be mobile first, I mean services that have been around for a while but have now nailed their mobile experience.
These services started on the web, but have evolved to be much more interesting as mobile applications. Two easy examples: Tumblr and Facebook.
