The webOS browser is good, but it lacks the uber-useful feature of saving web pages for offline reading—a critical feature for multitaskers who want to catch up on the news during a flight or subway ride. PDFMyWeb captures web pages and stores them as PDFs, allowing you to read the news even if you don’t have a signal.
The PhotoDialer app provides visual speed dials for your most frequently called friends. Arrange your top contacts in either a grid or list view and simply tap once to call. Not only is it faster and easier than having to slide open the keyboard on the Pre, but it’s more fun, too.
Get through your grocery list faster by organizing it with Shopping List. This app helps you create lists separated by recipe, store, aisle, and priority. It will also calculate sales tax and separate your list into what you have in your cart and what you still need.
Know the weather even while your screen is locked. The Weather Dashboard widget lives in the notification bar in webOS and gives you instant weather access with a single tap. Tap a second time for the full day’s forecast,and a third time for tomorrow’s. An optional GPS tracking feature will sync the weather to wherever you are, so you’ll never need to update the widget with your location.
