iPhoney: an iPhone web simulator for web developers

June 25, 2007

In my previous posts I was mentioning the iPhone developers camp which follow the iPhone public release, despite this camp is not sponsored by Apple, this is a great news for iPhone developers.

If you are a developer who is looking a way to see how your Web 2.0 applications and compatible web sites will look in iPhone, there is iPhoney. It is said that "iPhoney gives you a pixel-accurate web browsing environment—powered by Safari—that you can use when developing web sites for iPhone ". So you will get a look how your website will look on iPhone screen without upload it to iPhone or server.

IPhoney is designed for web developers who want to create web applications or websites for use with iPhone and gives developers a canvas to test the visual quality of their design of small screen 320x480 or 480x320.

Is iPhoney an iPhone Simulator ? No. According to its iPhaq (FAQ), iPhoney only simulates web browsing in the visual shell of an iPhone. It's not meant to simulate the iPhone experience.

iPhoney is a free Mac-OS application that requires Mac OS X 10.4.7 or later, so I wont dare to try it on my OS-X simulated Win XP *grin*.
