Debugging Web Pages on the iPhone/iPod Touch
By cbeckham on Oct 24, 2007
Our iPod Touch pilot program for delivering learning nuggets to our field force via iPod Touch devices is moving along quickly. Our business stake holders are very excited about the initiative and our advocates and content development teams are working on creating and assembling the content. I have a few guys on our l team working on a POC (Proof of Concept) to work out the technical details, workflow, performance, streaming, etc...(btw...Jan tells me that last night he figured out how to stream videos over WiFi to the device..and has that working now.....)..as soon as we can prove the concept..we will turn this initiative over to our brilliant engineering to to design and build it.
One big task is working on optimized web pages for that device, I know Safari can render any page well...it is not a baby web experience, however there are some benefits to the user experience if the page is optimized to take advantage of iPhone / iPod Touch features. So needless to say we are playing around with writing web pages...one difficulty is the ability to debug the web pages on the device.
