Gpanion is a sexy dashboard for accessing your Google apps
Google has a lot of services, and let's face it, many of us use several of them throughout our daily lives. Most people probably don't even know half of them, and people who can name 20 of them probably don't bother devoting bookmark space to more than a handful (I know I don't). If you like the idea of having all of them on hand at a moment's notice but don't feel like making an entire bookmark folder to devote to Google alone, then Gpanion might help you out a bit.
Gpanion tries to make it a bit easier for people to quickly access any of 46 Google apps by laying them all out in a grid. The primary page holds 14 Google apps (starting with the most commonly used ones), and hitting the folder icon in the lower right will shift to a second grid that holds 32 more. You can also save your preferences regarding apps that show up in the main grid if you sign into the service with a Google login or OpenID.
For the curious, it seems that a good deal of the sexy icons used in Gpanion come from an icon pack called Simply Google. It also looks great on an iPhone, and while I don't have an iPad around to check, I'm pretty sure it'll work out well on one of those, too.
It does not, however, turn out so great on some BlackBerry devices. It's not a perfect solution, but it's certainly worth keeping around if you use a boatload of Google services.
