Google's Picasa photo services aren't our favorite (we're Flickr Folks), but a new service they're offering might just get us to switch. Over at the Google Mobile Blog (via My Today Screen, welcome to the WinMo Blog World, guys!) there's info on how Picasa is now optimized for Windows Mobile.

The best part is that you can actually cache the stuff locally for offline viewing. How's that? Well we told ya a month ago that Google released their Google Gears for WinMo, and so now we're starting to see the benefits of that. Neat, eh?

Using the newly announced Google Gears for Mobile, they have added a few new features like viewing albums of your choice offline, and adding a Picasa icon as a shortcut for faster album access.
