I am a big fan of KeyToss and use it as my homepage on my Bold. It is essentially a user customizable iGoogle-like homepage designed for your mobile browser. They recently added four more features that make it even more useful.
- Flight Status tool, powered by FlightStats, allows mobile phone users across the world to check the status of airline flights. In addition to allowing users to customize the airline list, the Flight Status tool tunes itself by listing “favorite” airlines and optionally, saving previous flight searches. The tool also makes it easy to monitor the status of a flight over time. FlightStats, with the most complete coverage of commercial airline flights, tracks about 100,000 flights per day.
- Translation tool, powered by mobitra.mobi, gives users the ability to get translations when they need it most – while on the go. Fifteen languages are available (English, Spanish, French, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Korean, Dutch, Greek, Portuguese, Swedish, and Catalan), and users can customize the tool to include just the languages they need. Since many browsers on mobile phones cannot natively display special characters used in languages such as Chinese and Russian, or even French and Spanish, the Translation tool offers the innovative option to display translations as images instead of as text. The tool also allows users to select a default “home language” and to save translations for future reference.
- Snow Conditions tool, based on data from OnTheSnow.com, provides up-to-date information on snow conditions at over 1,200 ski resorts in 33 countries. Users can customize the tool to display the latest info for their favorite mountains.
- Currency Rates tool provides users with market exchange rates of several dozen different currencies, updated many times a day. Users can customize the tool to display the exchange rates for any combination of currencies.
