e-Mobile Today is a great app that provides you with a clean and polished view of the time, date, your call log, SMSs, e-mails, tasks and appointments – at once! You can even purchase a number of expansion packs – weather, news, and stocks – that provide you with regularly updated information, all in the same place. e-Mobile Today and its’ professional counterpart essentially do the same thing, but with a number of variations.
Generally, the professional edition offers a few more display themes and a lot more functionality.
This is what the main e-Mobile Today screen looks like. You can select from a digital or analog clock to be displayed in the top right corner. I personally dig the analog. As you can see, it also displays the date in the top left corner. Without the expansion packs, you’ll only be able to see down to the email pane (weather, stocks and news are only available with the purchase of these expansion packs).
You can also view your missed calls, an the total number of calls on that day. When you select the pane, four columns appear, showing you your missed calls for Today in the area below while giving you the option to scroll over to the left and view your missed calls for the past three days. I think the biggest difference between the regular and professional editions is functionality in general. With the regular version, you can only view these numbers, but with the professional version you can call the number by highlighting and selecting it.
You can also view your appointments and tasks in much the same way that you can view missed calls, only the panes above show you the tasks and appointments for the following three days. While you can view today’s agenda at a glance and all day appointments with appointment time, reminder and recurrence status in e-Mobile Today, the professional version goes the extra distance by allowing you to view upcoming appointments by week, and view the appointments calendar for quick overviews. Similarly, while the regular version allows you to view today’s tasks on home screen on home screen and view tasks by priority, due date & time, and completion status, the professional edition also lets you sort them by category.
Viewing emails and SMS with e-Mobile Today – regular and professional – is a pleasant experience because everything is neatly presented to you when viewing. It’s also nice to have SMSs and emails parsed into mutually exclusive inboxes. Once again, the professional version goes the extra distance – allowing you to reply, compose or view your inboxes by scrolling over one of them and clicking the menu button.
