Zoho Mails It In

I just installed Zoho’s newly launched Facebook app and my reaction is “big whoop”. I’m checking out a lot of Facebook applications and far too many of them think that just iframing their app in a Facebook wrapper is something we should get excited about.

If I actually want to do anything in the Zoho app it links me back to the service, so in essence I’m really not getting anything out of the Facebook app other than an extra link I have to click before going to zoho.com.

I do think that Zoho is one of the premier online office productivity applications, which makes me think that the Facebook app is something they did just because they could as opposed to something that they thought was exciting as a way to deliver exciting new functionality.

Dennis is a more enthusiastic than I am, but I’d be surprised if he actually ended up using this for anything.
