Let's Take A Look On Other Mobile/iphone Websites

Recommended Posts


I came across some pretty sites with iPhone/mobile version. You might get an idea for future release.

1. http://iphone.appleinsider.com/

This site is incredibly fast, even when I use EDGE. Interestingly it's heavily using JS to get what it is.

The overlay tab bars are useful when you have to view long list of topics, although they somewhat obstruct the page.

And I don't know how they preload every topic but hide their content, when you click the topic it expands instantly.

All media such as picture are replaced with the placeholder to boost the speed. When you click each media it will load.

2. http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/mobile

This is slower than the first site but still light weight ant optimised for iPhone.

When you click to view each topic, it will preload and slide to new page.

I prefer the first one (appleinsider). But whether you will implement it (or if it is even possible to develop) is still your decision.

P.S. For those who wish to emulate these web, if you have Safari, choose Edit >> Preferences (or Safari >> Preferences for Mac), go to Advanced tab and check "Show Develop Menu".

From Develop menu in the menu bar, choose "User Agent" and select Mobile Safari 3.1.2 (iPhone) or other browsers of your choice.

This way you can view the page source by selecting View >> View Source from the menu bar.

P.S.2 To Timan, about the shoutbox, I typed all the changes I made to reply you but was attacked by "Board Offline" and then my connection was gone shortly after that time so I got frustrated and didn't reply :P . I'll reply to you once I can get connection at home.
