IPHONEY
A FREE IPHONE WEB SIMULATOR FOR DESIGNERS.

Looking for a way to see how your web creations will look on iPhone? Look no further. iPhoney gives you a pixel-accurate web browsing environment—powered by Safari—that you can use when developing web sites for iPhone. It's the perfect 320 by 480-pixel canvas for your iPhone development. And it's free.

iPhoney is not an iPhone simulator but instead is designed for web developers who want to create 320 by 480 (or 480 by 320) websites for use with iPhone. It gives you a canvas on which to test the visual quality of your designs.

We've added a few handy features to iPhoney 1.2, and it is still open source so that talented developers from around the world can make it the best tool for testing iPhone-compatible web creations. What's new in version 1.2:

iPhoney requires Mac OS X 10.4.7 or later. Here's some of what you can do with iPhoney:

Why is iPhoney so big on my screen?
iPhoney is pixel accurate, meaning that it has exactly the same number of pixels on its screen as iPhone. However, your display probably packs between 72 and 96 pixels in every inch, where iPhone will have 160 pixels. So iPhoney looks about twice the size of iPhone, but shows exactly the same website content as you'll see on iPhone.

Is iPhoney an iPhone simulator?
No, iPhoney only simulates web browsing in the visual shell of an iPhone. It's not meant to simulate the whole iPhone experience.

How do I pinch and zoom, like in the commercials?
Unfortunately, right now, you can't pinch and zoom. However, you can use the View menu to switch between a zoomed out (Zoom to Fit) mode and the ordinary, zoomed in (full size) mode.

Why don't some of the buttons work?
Some features, like bookmarks and multiple screens (browser windows) aren't working in version 1.2. We've kept the buttons there so it looks like iPhone, and disabled them appropriately.

Is iPhoney open source?
Yes indeed. iPhoney has been released under the GNU Public License, and you can contribute to its SourceForge project.

Why can't i make calls on this thing?
Buy a real iPhone!
