Live mesh mobile, why link online folders to URL? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just started using the live mesh application for my windows phone. And i have one huge suggestion. When using the program it allows me to see all the folders that i have synced up as shortcuts, but when i click any shortcuts rather than being able to browse the folders within the program it opens my browser which then asks me to sign in, THEN i can view that particular folder.

    In terms of the overall experience of any smartphone application, this is basically the definition of 'breaking' the user experience. Why not just keep the browsing of folders within the application so users can easily get the same experience, rather than forcing them to jump to an external application. Being able to download/sync is great...but being able to quickly and seamlessly access files that are already on your Mesh is definitely the other half of the equation.
