    Web Applications for iOS

    I've been working on these a lot, porting old sites to iPad/iPhone compatible ones. I think they're a ton of fun. I mostly use them as tools around the house and being out and about. iOS 4.2 just opened up a lot more HTML5 options, so I've been experimenting a ton with WebSockets lately.

    I've been working on this guide as a how-to for others. You can really make some interesting tools and if you spend a good amount of time on them, they can run just like native apps. I've always wanted to make iOS apps, but the whole SDK and Mac-only dev platform were huge turn offs.

    Anyways, here's my blog link. This is just a little hobby of mine, would love to see who else has any fun making these sort of sites or even if others have suggestions.

    I haven't tried doing anything like this yet, however with your guide, it is now a possibility.

    Kudos for the link and the writing. I have it bookmarked and will be looking to test some things out on my own. Very cool!

    Here's a quick demo I made today. Go to this url on your iOS device and in SAFARI on a PC (OS doesn't matter, just Safari). Enter the # that you see on your iOS device into the textbox in Safari. Then move the device around and watch the monitor.

    I just discovered the DeviceOrientation API today. I've been doing Websocket work for a while, but I instantly knew how to merge the two. If someone is good at making canvas games, then this would be a great oppurtunity to use an iOS device as a controller.

    I'll be posting another web app that I've been working on for months in a few hours. It's simple, but the fact that you can do it entirely on the web is awesome.

    Draw With Me - Free Web App

    Released my first Web App! A lot of the tech that I used for this is summed up in my how-to blog post.
