New MobileMe Launched: New Look, Improved WebMail, Find My iPhone App
Apple has launched their new MobileMe interface tonight with an overhauled MobileMe Webmail system as well as a "Find My iPhone" App Store App. The new interface reveals a new application switcher interface which replaces the row of icons that was previously used.
The new Webmail features are detailed by Apple as well. These include:
- Widescreen and compact views.
- Rules to keep your email organized everywhere.
- Single-click archiving.
- Formatting toolbar.
- Faster performance.
- Increased security with SSL.
- Support for external email addresses (new since the beta)
- Improved junk mail filtering (new since the beta).
Meanwhile, Apple has also released a brand new Find My iPhone app [App Store] that offers a universal iPhone/iPad App to locate your lost device:
If you lose your iPhone or iPad while on the go, simply install this free app on any other iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to find it. Sign in with your member name and password (MobileMe subscription required) to locate your missing device on a map and have it display a message or play a sound. You can even remotely lock the device to protect your privacy, or wipe it to permanently delete all of your data if you think that it won't be returned.
