KeyToss Mobile Version 2 Beta – Personalized Portal

keytoss Honestly I have never heard of KeyToss before until Josep pointed out the Version 2 Beta to me. When I checked it out I was quite impressed. It is essentially a mobile portal for your smartphone that gives you quite a bit of functionality tailored to your preferences. Kind of like iGoogle for your Berry even though KeyToss is targeted towards Treo users. Check it out at m.keytoss.com.

  2. Sure….show the Mets/Cardinals score…should have shown the 14 inning score!
