An old friend of mine sent me a link yesterday for MoFuse and I really like it. While on vacation to Disney it was very hard for me to browse my own website on my Treo and when I wanted to make a comment, I had to email another friend to make a post on my behalf. Via MoFuse I set up my mobile blog in literally about 5 minutes. It was fast and painless and believe it or not the user interface was a piece of cake. Sure, I could spend more time on it to clean it up a bit, but I'm heading to California today and I want to take my blog with me. Here's my mobile link and a screen shot.
I had a few issues with it, but my biggest one is that it doesn't appear that I can update my TypePad code to automatically redirect to my MoFuse mobile URL, but that's ok for now. It might be available but I just didn't have the time to play with it. I also didn't see the need to upgrade to the Pro version for $3 per month, but perhaps I will later. My final issue is that besides splitting the ad revenue (probably non existent right now), I wonder how they will make money in the long term. It definitely appears to be modeled after TypePad (proprietary URL, ad revenue, a little subscription), but unlike TypePad they will have to survive long enough for real mobile interactivity.
MoFuse looks like a great play right now for me and I'm glad my friend sent me the link. If you have a blog, take 5 minutes to set something up. You'll be glad you did.
