iPhone web app from Apple?

Well it seems that Apple is truly wanting to prove to everyone that web apps are the way to go. To do that, they even created their own iPhone web app. It is the "Apple iPhone RSS Reader". Apple unfortunately put a restriction on the website. It won't let you try it without being on an iPhone. It says: "This Application Is Viewable Only On iPhone". It still looks like it will be a pretty cool web app! You can check out the website where you can find it once you have your iPhone here. (http://reader.mac.com/)

What the website displays when trying to see it in a regular web browser:

Hehe... After my comment yesterday where I said it was cool we could try iPhone apps in a regular safari browser, now there seems there are ways to block that!!!

I imagine the web page checks for the user agent. We need a newer Safari Enhancer to fake out iPhone Safari.

Wow, what a web application - Not!

When you go to this url with an iPhone, you see a static message:

"If you's like to view an RSS feed, just enter the feed URL directly into Safari's address bar."

Guess that was what they wanted to "protect!"

Well, the phone is neat, but the Edge network sucks.

LL&P,
