When the iPhone was first revealed it was certainly a
step forward in mobile phone technology. The iPhone is
an internet-connected, multimedia smartphone, designed
and marketed by Apple Inc. Introduction of iPhone
revolutionize the global market of mobile technology and
its proliferation helps users to access most web pages
exactly as they would appear on a personal computer.
With iPhones being increasingly available to people more
and more, people are hooking themselves with this. This
is significant for e-business owners because more people
use the iPhone to surf the net than any other mobile
browser. IPhone has set of cool features like slick
appearance, powerful computing capabilities, beautiful
display and touch navigation. These embedded features
have captured the imagination of potential users as well
as technology developers.
Guidelines for Building a Site for iPhones:
Test on as many phones as you can:
The first thing you should do is to view your site on a
cell phone or 10 different cell phones. While there are
some emulators out there, they really don't give you the
same feel as trying to navigate through a Web site on
the tiny little screen.
Make your pages degrade gracefully:
You can write your pages for Flash-enabled, wide screen
browsers, but make sure that the provided information is
visible even in a tiny monitor that can handle no
Build a wireless specific page - and make it
easy to find: If you're going to build a
specific page for your cell phone and wireless
customers, make it available. It is advised to put the
link to the wireless page at the top of your document,
and then hide that link from non-handheld devices using
the handheld media type. After all, most people come to
your home page, even on cell phones and if the link to
your wireless page isn't there, they'll leave page.
Web Page Layout for iPhones
Remember that the screen is tiny:
Web pages that have multiple thin columns work better on
cell phones than Web pages with one large column. The
narrower the content is on your normal page, the less it
will have to shrink to fit a cell phone window.
Divide pages into small unit: It is
difficult to read long section of text on a cell phone
so put them on multiple pages that makes them easier to
Links and Navigation on iPhones
It is suggested to keep links shorter because typing
long URLs is tedious task.
Page through screens and screens of links to find the
information are annoying for the user. It is suggested
to have things that show up the content and headline and
below that navigation links can be placed.
Access keys plays prominent role for mobile website.
If users get into the habit of using access keys on your
Web pages then your mobile site will rise enormously.
Images on iPhones
The images for iPhone should be small. The small
size image takes few seconds to download that benefits
for end-users. The facility of zoom can help the users
to set image size.
Images take up a lot of space on Web pages while
viewing them from an iPhone. They look nice and better
when images viewed on a full-screen on Web browser.
It can be boring to wait for an image that takes up
3-4 screens to load at the very top of the iPhone page.
While, this is extremely common on Web pages.
