If you, like me, are excited about the possibility of creating rich apps for the iPhone but aren’t too excited about paying the high price for the iPhone I’ve got just the solution for you. MarketCircle, creator of the great Mac time tracking software Billings has created iPhoney, an iPhone simulator that allows you to test your web apps on an amazingly realistic looking iPhone interface.
From their website:
iPhoney is not an iPhone simulator but instead is designed for web developers who want to create 320 by 480 (or 480 by 320) websites for use with iPhone. It gives you a canvas on which to test the visual quality of your designs.â€?
I’ve been contemplating creating an iPhone app since hearing that they would support third party web development on the device but I was reluctant since I wasn’t planning to purchase an iPhone. Now I’ve got a good reason to reconsider!
