Going where you want on the Web is easy; getting there from a mobile phone is much harder. Zumobi eases the way with its grid of thumbnail widgets set against a visually rich backdrop. We like that users can zoom in to check news or sports scores, view photos, get recipes, and play games from almost any supported phone model. Rating tiles, browsing through a gallery, and sending tiles to friends is easy, though the app still needs some work making navigation more elegant and versatile to users' searching and storing needs. For instance, some action sequences take too much time, and the app doesn't yet grant use over the allotted 16 tiles. Still, the free app offers a credible, legible alternative to browsing for specific content.
