The link seems to be down to the Zumobi site.


Looks like their servers can't handle the traffic. It's down for me too.


After a couple of hours of no luck connecting to their servers I finally got it downloaded and running on the 8820. Set up was relatively easy and the face page seems to be working fine. The sensativity of the roller-ball makes navigation a little hard. That said, I think they are on to something that could become a major application. For right now, its a bit inflexable in terms of customization. I will keep it for a while and see how much I actually use it.


After playing with the this for a few hours it came off the 8820. First of all, every time you open it up it updates.. .which I guess makes sense, but it is horribly slow. So much so it just became frustrating sitting there watching the % indicator crawl across the screen. That in itself is what pushed me over the edge. Secondly, I found the sites fairly useless. I can get the same information much more quickly by simply going to my bookmarks and directly to the site without all that updating nonsense. Like I said in my previous post, this could be a nice application. They simply have to get it to boot up about 70% faster.. it is way to slow. And how you get to the widgets is not the best functional design. The numbered radio buttons are so small you really have to have glasses to make out the numbers around the "Z". This needs some work.. I wish them the best, but for me, a basic redesign is recommended. Just my opinion!
