I just StumbledUpon an interesting WordPress plugin: iWPhone WordPress Plugin and Theme. This plugin will automatically detect the Apple iPhone User Agent reformats your blog’s content for optimized viewing with a special theme only to iPhone visitors (man, that was a mouthful!), all other browsers will view your WordPress blog with your current theme.
In the past, I have installed plugins for the Wii and PSP browsers but ultimately removed them – that was during my 41-plugins-installed days. My question is this: Would you/should you install this plugin? We all know that the iPhone’s Safari browser is a true browser, it renders the web as it should be – but should we make content easier to read on a 320 x 480 screen?
Speaking of the iPhone, I found this interesting application called iPhoney. Here is the description from the site:
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. If you have questions about iPhoney, visit our issue tracker on SourceForge, as our support team doesn’t provide technical support for iPhoney.
Unfortunately, it’s a Mac only application and it wont show you load times but I thought it was very interesting! Again, would you install this plugin in the off chance someone will access your site from the iPhone?
