just a thought.

So I'm sitting at the doc's office and bored, waiting. And I thought I'd use my phone (moto droid) to get on here and check out recent posts. Althought the web is pretty quick, wouldn't it be great to have phone apparently for kawiforums? Or at least a m.kawiforums.com or mobile site. Not sure if this is even possible, but the powers that be should look into it. Input guys...

Just a thought

Opera Mobile.

Full html web browser for most modern smartphones. I am on my blackberry right now, most of my posts here are from it .

Its crazy fast too - data is compressed before being sent to the phone so it is much quicker then normal phone browsers.

I realize iuts full access, like stated before, Im using the droid running andriod software 2.0.1. So ya its fast, but a mobile app would be sweet. I can nav the site pretty well...just would be cool. Its probably not doable anyway.

I'm a web developer and I can say with absolute certainty that it IS possible to build a mobile version of the site.

During the end of December I built a mobile version of the site I work for (4 million+ visits per month site), and we did so without building out a subdomain. You can just insert a mobile-only stylesheet, but its much better to redirect if possible.

As for doing an iPhone version, I would definitely suggest the web-based approach. You can build websites specifically for an iPhone now that are essentially doing anything an app could do, but without the overhead of developing in objective C (Cocoa) and without the overhead of dealing with the app store process (which sucks A LOT).
