The iPhone may function as a mini-computer of sorts, but huddle.net’s app version of their desktop program relies on the notion you’d prefer to use your PC for actual document creation.

The Huddle app simply mirrors the information that is found on your huddle.net workspace. Huddle.net offers projects tools and collaboration software so companies and clients can work together. The general service costs $15 a month.

When you first load this free app you are asked to sign-up at huddle.net, but clicking sign-up actually takes you to an unsightly safari version of the Web page, not a made-for-app sign-up page.

New Huddle users get a gigabyte of free storage with basic sign-up, but the next cheapest package starts at $20 per month.

After signing up on the huddle.net site, you’ll quickly notice that the Web site is a lot more useful than the Huddle app.

On the Web, you can quickly add new calendar entries and upload documents with a few mouse clicks. On the app, however, you can only view things already created on the Web site. There is a button to add a document on the app version, but clicking it tells you the option is only available on the full version. I can only assume they’re telling you politely to go to huddle.net.

The app might be useful if you need to check on project work that’s been completed, but if you’re looking to start something new while on the go, Huddle’s app won’t work well.
