iPhoney 1.1 – open source

Scaling  June 27, 2007  AJ

We’ve just released iPhoney 1.1, our super duper iPhone browser kinda simulator. The major bit of news is that we added the often requested “zooming” feature and we’ve open sourced it.

A bunch of folks found iPhoney useful for testing their website before the widespread availability of the iPhone.

A good example is OneTrip. It’s a brilliant Web 2.0 app perfectly suited for the iPhone. It’s simple and you can easily see how the app is suited for “finger tapping”.

Until next time…

    Is there any chance that the user agent field of the “real thing” contains info about iPhone’s current orientation? I know, you have’nt a iPhone handy, but maybe …

    With the iPhone sign up process requiring a SIN number, it’s going to be difficult for us to get one. Our plan was to go to Buffalo and buy one (including roaming package and what not), but it looks we won’t be able to do that.

    Anyways in regards to the user agent, you can set it yourself in iPhoney 1.1. Do a bit of googling and you’ll find what people think is the latest (if the one we provide is not deemed to be accurate).

    As far as I know – the one we provide has all the basic components right. The only thing I see changing is the webkit version number.

    Looks great. Is the source going up soon?

    We mentioned the link to the source on the iPhoney page. The link is:

    Hi guys. I really like your app. Simple but effective. I’ve taken a similar idea for

    Kinda the same but online (and no USERAGENT string).

    I’ve also started – a wiki for iPhone developers, it would be good to have some of your input. Esp. as I’m in Australia and our date for getting the iPhone is still TBA.

    I think most folks, myself included are looking under the ‘Download’ buttons for a zip or tar file with the packaged source.

    Are making the source available through SVN instead?

  7. Mark Onyschuk says:

    Hi Richard – I’ll package up the 1.1 sources in the download tab on Sourceforge. At present it’s a tagged release in the SVN repository hosted at SF.

    Hey there

    I love your app so much I made a web based version out of it.

    As i am using the iPhoney regularly for designing the website of my company i still dont know what the differences are between the different Agents in the program.
    Could you please tell me what are the significant differences between the Webkit Agent and the iPhone User Agent?

  10. AJ says:

    We’ve added two helpful links on the iPhoney page. As far as agents go – use the iPhone agent. Don’t worry about the others.

    Are you sure you want to release just the source, and not the application?

    Never mind, looked in wrong spot. Delete these two comments if you’d like, and thanks for the app.
