    Default MobileMe through Chrome on the iPhone

    I was playing around with my iPhone as you do on a sunday morning and i came across an interesting thing. I was able to access MobileMe's web interface through the Google App. Now this only works because the Google App doesn't actually use Safari it uses a version of Chrome (which is hidden).

    This is enabled by a few down gestures in the settings menu, and *poof* using google magic the hidden Bells and Whistles Menu appears.
    Turn On 'Open Links in App'
    Then Search for Me.com in app.
    Then press continue.
    Log in and your are in MobileMe.

    Now MobileMe does not work too well on the iphone, just like the Apple site, and drains your battery like you are on GPS. The thing which is most useful from this discovery, isn't so much the mail, contacts or even the calendar, but the Find My iPhone Functionality works!! So now you can track your lost iphone with your friends iphone Or do a remote wipe, or tell that creep in the club who lifted your phone you are after him!!

    I was also excited because i thought the iDisk might work, but unfortunately I was unable to use the share or download feature. The Photo Gallery also would not load.

    Anyway i thought someone out there might like to know.

    Um... could you not do this in the inbuilt Safari app?

    I don't have mobile me, but if it works in the Google app, it should work in Safari. Excuse me if I'm wrong.

    Nope, it redirects to a page informing you that you are dumb.

    Nope... It won't even let you login. There's nowhere to input you're login or password

    edit: beaten by Phase, I need to get my iPhone typing up to scratch! :-p
