All your numbers in one place.
There are times when a software application becomes tightly integrated with your routine without you even realizing it. Then you come across a scenario where that software is not available and you realize how much you’ve come to depend on it.
Ego for the iPhone/iPod Touch is one of those pieces of software for me. Some while back I came to this realization—even when sitting at my desk working on my computer where all of my information is accessible, if I want to look at stat for a site of mine, I would rather use Ego. That is one of those great moments I’ve often referred to. If my iPod is not around, getting a summary of my stats is a bit of a pain.
There are two reasons for this: 1) Ego contains all of the information I want to see and 2) it’s a gorgeously designed application. It doesn’t do a lot, but what it does, it does well.
Simplicity should not be overlooked when it comes to software.
