Clio was the first major player in the online practice management space to sync with Outlook, and now Clio and Time59 announce iPhone compatibility. Neither offer a true iPhone app; instead, both have iPhone-optimized sites (despite Clio’s confusing blog entry). This is a good thing, in my opinion. Gmail’s iPhone-optimized site is better than any e-mail app I have seen, including Apple’s own.

To go with the iPhone-optimized website, Clio has also announce websites optimized for Android and the Palm Pre. Time59 is just for the iPhone, for now.

Update: Larry Port of Rocket Matter reminded me that his company has been offering an iPhone-optimized website since March 2008, and also supports the Palm Pre and Android.
