Web development with the iPhone and iPad in Mind

Friday, July 30th, 2010 | Business | 1 Comment

In the very near future, I will be posting a series of posts on what you should/shouldn’t be doing to develop a website where the iPhone and iPad are a target demographic. ¬†jQuery will figure¬†prominently in the series, as I’ve seen almost all websites now require work with jQuery (or anther AJAX platform).

Let me know if you have any specific questions / concerns, and I’ll be glad to answer them.

Some interesting things to think about:

  • How are mouse clicks triggered? (It’s not as straightforward as you’d think)
  • How are hover states triggered? (Hint: the iPad has a hover state, but it’s not what you think — remember you only have a single touch, no arrow following your finger)
  • What types of gestures can we use?
  • What special considerations must we make for CSS?
  • What are the ideal screen dimensions? (this is easy, but remember we have multiple devices, and multiple orientations)
  • What types of video can we play? (iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G and the original iPhone all have different specifications, it’s not that easy)
