Iphone Webapp

Recommended Posts


to make this Skin a full Iphone WebApp, you might want to add the following meta / link tags by default:

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="{$this->settings['img_url']}/custom_icon.png"/> <-- Should be 75x75 icon without effects

<link rel="apple-touch-startup-image" href="{$this->settings['img_url']}/splash.png"> <-- Should be 320x460 splash screen

Additionally a new window is opened on the first click on the home screen. Maybe you have an idea how to prevent this as the hidden Safari navigation buttons reappear when a new page is loades.

Thanks for the great skin!

Best regards,

Looking forward to the implementation of the Metas. Anyhow it's also not a big deal to add them yourself.

Maybe one other recommendation. Put the User Graphics (Logo, etc.) in a seperate Graphic Package, so if you send an update the user just hast to replace the Skin and your included Graphics but not upload his customisation...

You may want to also consider these:


<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">

<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style" content="black">

Bear in mind, there are advantages and disadvantages to making an app into a webapp, versus just allowing it to be bookmarked -- the most notable is that on a webapp, when clicking on an email link, it launches MobileMail -- when it's a regular web page, it pops up the Mail pane (which is more convenient and more direct).
