    Apple today posted an updated support document detailing recent enhancements to its me.com landing page for iPhone and iPod touch users. The new landing page offers instructions for setting up MobileMe services via the device's Settings application, as well as direct links for Find My iPhone and Apple's MobileMe Gallery and MobileMe iDisk applications.
    Apple's me.com landing page for the iPhone and iPod touch previously offered only instructions for setting up MobileMe services on the user's device.

    looks nice.

    I bet alot of users don't know those applications exist for the iPhone...but then again, how many times will they go to me.com on their phones, since you can do mail/cal/etc via the built in apps.

    Too bad the actual find-my-phone page is formatted very poorly for the iPhone screen.

    What was the point of making a nice intro and then just passing you off to another page that clearly wasn't designed for the iPhone?

    Now you truly use "Find my iPhone" on your iPhone simple. Very welcomed update. Now if we could get that dedicated app for that....

    I love this! Can other web-enabled phones access the web apps (esp. Find my iPhone)? Bb?

    the fact that you can search for your phone with another iphone is cool, as jokes aside. I can see myself using this sometime with the guys on a big night out.

    Still slightly annoying that you can't access mobileme via the mobile safari browser. On my Uni campus they block access to my .me mail on my laptop. That means on the uni network they will block it on the iPhone, but while I can use the web interface on the laptop via safari, this isn't true for the iPhone. It just tells you to use mobileme with the mail app!

    It would be great if Apple could finally give iPhone users the ability to create folders on their .mac accounts. You can't do that with the Mail.app and when you login to mac.com/me.com, you are not given a mobile version of their Mail feature, so it is impossible to create folders. Seems so basic, but, nope, still no way to create folders. *sigh*

    Why would your uni block .me? Talk about control. This makes Steve look like a wide open door.

    This is good news. A good step in the right direction.

    Now they just need to format the other pages for Mobile Safari, and add webmail, contacts, and calendars for guest access on someone else's iPhone (sure, if you're on your own, you can just use the built-in apps, but that's not a good solution for someone borrowing someone else's iPhone). Still, good to have what they offer now.

    They haven't applied the changes to all IP addresses (sources) yet. Yours should change soon.

    The 'Find my iPhone' is great. And logging if, after pressing that button, takes you right to the Map for the user you log in as.

    It's good news, but what they really need to do is either lower the price or add a hell of a lot more storage for the price they are charging.

    When will they go back to letting you see your bookmarks when you log in to MobileMe.com via a web browser?

    Really really annoys me that they force you to access the iPhone me.com pages.

    I want to use the regular me.com address book page from my iPhone - because I'd like to access all the extra fields (partner's name, birthday etc.) from the phone - and Apple doesn't sync them.

    So this really isn't a solution!!

    This is a long time in the making.
    Apple's implementation of MobileMe's Web 2.0 features is far behind Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft's free services. Forcing users to initiate a sync or use a non-mobile device to get full functionality is, at this point, backwards.

    I just tried "Find My iPhone" from an iPhone and the result is a page that is identical to the standard version.

    Why can they not offer a nice web app to check email like Microsoft does for MSN and hotmail ???

    When I'm on the go and need to save power, I like to use the web app version of MSN.

    They don't block .me via safari on the laptop. I'm not sure why, but my last Uni would block Mail and Skype and so does my new Uni. Not those specific programs per se but maybe the ports they access in order to get on the net.
