G-Whizz provides easy access to Google services

iPhone Developer Ricky Bloomfield has released G-Whizz, a new universal application that provides users with a single, convenient point of access to Google’s mobile web applications. Essentially a multi-tabbed browser with each tab pre-defined for a different Google service, G-Whizz allows users to log in once to their Google Account and then easily switch between screens to access their favorite Google applications. The application also provides an unread count badge for Gmail, automatic detection of e-mail links and links to other Google services, and pop-up browser windows for opening external links. Google Apps accounts are also supported for Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs while still using a normal Google Account for other services such as Google Reader. Eighteen different Google services are supported, including Gmail, Reader, Calendar, Search, Docs, Voice, Talk, Buzz, Picasa, News, YouTube and more and users can customize the button arrangement for their most commonly-used services. G-Whizz is available from the App Store for $3.

Works great! The more I use G-Whizz!, the more impressed I am by how much easier it makes accessing Google services.  Way better than using Mobile Safari, especially for Reader.  Thanks for the tip!
