Over on the Brave New Code blog who created the plugins, they have featured my website while asking me a few questions regarding their plugin.
My personal website (blog) is over 4 years old now and in that time it has been tweaked, altered and experimented with by myself looking to add something a little new and hopefully entice people to have a good look around. My CSS knowledge is quite limited and more often than not if I get stuck to the point where my hair is torn out in large clumps as I can’t find the answer on good old Google, I give my friend Ben a nudge, of which he replies with the life saving answer.
I came to the obvious conclusion that my CSS limits were just not enough to add that extra bit of sparkle to my website and after a little conversation with Ben, I convinced him to have a gander and see what small changes he could make to improve the design. I wasn’t expecting a great deal as he only had an hour free, however the result was extremely impressive in my eyes and I hope you agree too.
I am sure many of you like myself now own either an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch, enjoying the Internet browser capabilities as part of the feature set. The ability to check emails on the move is a blessing and a curse as although you can keep an eye on your inbox wherever you may be, the urge to check just one more time and responding to those so called ‘urgent’ requests will more than likely have you in up to the neck in deep murky water with your loved ones from time to time.
I hate being disconnected from this information though and now many sites use an iPhone and iPod Touch compatible theme, feature an App on the Apple iTunes Store for a slightly different viewing experience or at the very least add a little bit of code so that its easier to scroll for these modern mobile devices.
My blog and indeed my Yamaha keyboard and digital piano enthusiast website both have an iPhone/iPod Touch theme designed specifically for these devices (and others of course!), allowing to view the latest posts and features, run a site search, listen to podcasts and comment on articles.
