    Sure. It won't be any less secure than doing it via your PC. Many business owners do this on a daily basis, specially in hosting.

    iPhone App for WHMCS looks great, if they have built this app for WHMCS , I hope they may have taken care of security.

    I wouldn't get an iPhone 4. Wait for the next release.

    Honestly both the cPanel and WHMCS apps suck! I bought them and never used them again. @Zach there is nothing wrong with the iPhone 4 it's quite elegant and I did not notice too much change from 3GS to 4.0 of the iPhone just a few new extras but meh

    iPhone 5 won't be out to the later part of this year or next!

    Personally, I use a HTC Evo / HTC Desire HD.
    The browser easily handles the WHMCS admin interface, so I feel no need to get the app.

    But I can't comment on it. Maybe they will increase the features of it. But given the feedback, for $30.00 it doesn't really seem worth it.

    Apple always realease a new product within 6 months of each other. If you buy one, chances are better one will be around within a year. You'll never have the best device unless you want spend 2000+ a year on new devices.

    Nothing new for me

    I bought the iPad and heaven behold 3 months later the iPad 2 came out much cheaper than the one I bought originally.... Meh!

    But otherwise regardless they do last quite a while so it can pay off in many ways.

    I would, not sure I like them though. My sister bought one of them with Optus and it was rather slow, but then again it was cheap at $150.00.

    Apple is good, heaps of products but too many to choose from, so confusing.

    I love the fact that Android is open-source and there are plenty of modifications available for Android Smartphones.

    Just don't go for any low-end androids as android needs a bit more processing power and RAM than other OS's.

    BTW, SpeedySparrow forum is not opening well with Opera Mini smartphone web browser. Its coming too small and I have to zoom constantly over 10 seconds to get to the normal size everytime.

    Well that is very true I suppose, but then is it wise for "Vulnerabilities", I have heard some apps have been removed for the purpose of theft of details.

    Just don't go for any low-end androids as android needs a bit more processing power and RAM than other OS's.
    The good thing about Apple is the process speeds are quite good for the device, they are improving based on the newer models (ie; 256MB to 512MB) in power which is quite good, but as I am not a person to have 50 apps open it does not bother me.

    BTW, SpeedySparrow forum is not opening well with Opera Mini smartphone web browser. Its coming too small and I have to zoom constantly over 10 seconds to get to the normal size everytime.
    Eek, not sure why that is as it opens quite well for me

    I will have a squiz, but will upgrade to the new release very soon.

    It's not really designed for Opera, I did test it and it loads fine for me.

    Did you try (CTRL+0) it should bring it back into size, but then if it happens again it's slightly out of my scope to as why with this browser.

    Loads in normal view in FireFox and Opera for me though

    The only issues I've had with Android is battery life, but that's mostly due to the huge screens and the way that apps are backgrounded I think.

    I find the iPhone tends to do the same though, I find my battery life dies pretty quick as well in comparison.

    My iPhone 4 is almost a year old and I still get a full day of use out of it without having to plug it in. Now I do have to plug it in every night versus once every 2 days or so due to the battery's age but I can't complain.

    My i4 lasts a lot longer than my 3G S ever did... My wife's droid, on the other hand, has to be plugged in a few times per day and it's only 2 months old... She even has the "extended" battery.

    Well thats Opera Mini 6 for mobiles. I took that screenshot on my Nokia 5230. It loads fine on PC.

    @ Mike
    The short battery life is one of the major issues of Android phones. However, if you don't set live wallpapers always and kill useless processes with a task manager then that'll save some RAM and battery life.

    I agree the 3GS battery life was not that exceptional, I used to take it back and forth to work and at the end of the day I was always hitting the 20% mark. Since getting the iPhone 4 it has improved the battery life but then again I also have to account for the applications I am running as some of them are resource pigs to the battery.

    I suppose at the end of the day it comes down to what you are using the phone for and it can depict the battery duration over the days use.

    There's a secure connection feature on the WHMCS app for android (SSL) It also uses an access key which adds some extra protection.

    It's an must for small webhosting companies since you can work at work, free time etc.

    I am using iwebmanager.
    happen to see it here and there was a quite a few good reviews.
    Bought one and is working perfect. They keep coming up with updates too.

    You can see some reviews in WHT itself.
    It is serving my requirements and I am happy with it.

    ^ Honestly, looks nothing different from "Ollies" applications, they were not specifically BAD but they weren't great.

    This one seems nothing new.

    I saw them when I checked the similar pruducts.
    But I was reluctant when I saw the reviews in the store. More over their prices were high.

    Get JuiceDefender/JuiceDefender Ultimate. It really helps, and with a decent custom profile you can get a day or more out of the battery.

    With the new Android firmware released, it also helps.

    Also, get an automated task killer as well.

    Very simple. Do you want to make a phone call with your device? If yes, get the iPhone.

    If not, do you want a large screen or a small screen? iPad or iPod to answer that question.

    Apple's marketing is ingenious.

    I'm lucky that I can plug my phone in via USB or my car throughout the day while at work. But I agree, the major downfall to Android phones is the battery life. Based on my scenario and the ability to keep it charged I'd prefer my battery draining phone over an iPhone based on the advanced features and customization it gives me.

    A lot of times the battery saving programs can decrease your battery life. Depending on the apps you have installed... sometimes if you kill your data connection while the screen is off an app will cycle to keep retrying a server connection. Or if you kill a process that another process depends on you can run an app into a cycle, etc. So make sure to monitor your battery life with and without JuiceDefender.

    Android devices don't need automated task killers. It's built into the OS to automatically end applications over x hours without use. If you go to an android forum like Android Central, they will yell at you if you have a task killer. Lol

    The reason android devices have a lesser battery power is related to:

    • Full processor capability (apple devices are under clocked as far as I know.)
    • Bigger, brighter screens.
    • Smaller battery.
    • Android is based on Java and requires more computing power than other devices.
    • 4G takes a lot of battery, especially LTE.

    I'm not sure if she has it set up, I just remember she was messing with it at one point.

    I would be bothered by that if the phone felt slow/laggy/didn't do what I wanted it to do. I can't honestly say I've ever picked up my iPhone 4 and gone "Man, this thing is slow, I wish it were faster!"

    I do hope the iPhone 5 has a 4.0+ inch display, that would be awesome.

    Hmm, I'm not sure ... My iPhone 4 has a 1420mAh battery... Her HTC Inspire came with a 1230mAh battery but she upgraded to a 1600mAh battery... Even with her having nearly 200 mAh more than myself she still plugs it in regularly where as I go 24 to 48 hours without charging (and my phone is almost a year old).

    I've not really looked into what powers Android to be honest... I find it odd that they would use an interpreted language instead of a compiled language to power the OS... Perhaps some of the applications but I don't know - I'd have to look into it.

    Sure... If she had an LTE phone then that would be an argument but then again - it'd be an argument for ANY phone with LTE (Android or not) as far as battery life.

    I'm too busy to separate your quote nicely like you did to mine, but yes all valid points. Most of the reasons I listed were mainly things to explain to people who either have or are coming from an iPhone. Although, I've used both, and my HTC Thunderbolt lasts me a good 2 to 2.5 days before a charge on the stock battery.

    Indeed, I'm not arguing for or against either. They both have their merits and as long as it does what you need it to do, then that's good!

    Both pretty much, no wait (Call, Text, Download, E-mail, Intnernet).

    If not, do you want a large screen or a small screen? iPad or iPod to answer that question.
    Probably the iPad, I am so blind.

    Not a problem though, but I do not like a lot of the APPS that end up the APPS Store at times. Some are quite pointless but in a sense some can or could be security risks if allowed to bypass the security of Apple, has happened before I suppose and hence why I do not put a lot of trust in cPanel APPS created by third parties.
