Flickr used to be the king of photo sharing on the Internet. Lately, however, it’s been declining as services such as 1x, 500px and SmugMug have come into play. Google+ has also become a very popular place to find good photographs thanks to well-known lensmen like Trey Ratcliff. Everyone has their own cup of tea, and 500px has always been mine because the community is superior to that of Flickr. Matthew Guay of Mac.AppStorm calls it the “Dribbble of photography.”

The iPhone was a revolution in mobile browsing. For most of us, it was the first time we got a taste of a phone-sized browser that, aside from Flash, could really handle the full-size web without compromises.

Only occasionally will I want to check out a restaurant’s menu or run a quick Google search while I’m out.
Despite the myriad of industry experts claiming that mobile web apps are the future, I don’t regularly use a single one but stick exclusively to native apps. This week’s poll asks the same question of you. Do you frequently browse the web on your iPhone or are you more apt to use native apps for everything? Vote in the poll and leave your comments below.
