Use Backpack as Your Mobile Workspace

Add notes, to-do lists, and more directly from your device.

Have you ever tried to update a site using a form in your browser like many web applications require? For example, try updating a wiki page from your device. Usually it is not that easy, because most web sites were designed with a computer’s browser in mind, not your handheld’s.

The Backpack web service (http://www.backpackit.com) makes updating web sites easy using email. You just send the content you would like added to a secret email address, and the text is added to your page immediately.

What Exactly Is Backpack?

Backpack is a web service that allows you to get organized by storing your to-do lists, notes, photos, and files online. You can set up reminders that are sent via email. You can optionally share your content with others. The feature that makes Backpack so great for the BlackBerry is the ability to add content to your pages by sending emails.
