EDIT: The small font bug in OSMscout (on the MX4) is now fixed. Yay!

  1. Concerning the absence of AirDroid… I wonder if Send Anywhere would work on the phone browser (if there isn’t a dedicated app). In the desktop browser the little tab on the right has Send/Receive buttons – no account or login required. Easily handles single or multiple file transfers from desktop to device and vice-versa (over local wi-fi).

  2. The problem with most of the apps on the phone is that they’re all webapps. So, no offline mode, or if you’re in a bad signal area, tough. No looking at your mail, no looking at maps etc. Sounds strange to say that you want to use a phone where you don’t have a network connection, but not everyone is lucky enough to live in a good signal area, and is a PITA if you need to look at a mail you already looked at 5mins ago when your network suddenly drops. Plus, being webapps, there’s no native notifications, so I can have 20+ updates on facebook/twitter and I never know about them until I go back to the app (they’re working on that I think?).
