iPhoney: Web app simulator for iPhone

iPhoney: Web app simulator

Marketcircle has released iPhoney, a new iPhone simulator for Web designers. The Mac OS X application is designed test iPhone-enabled Web 2.0 applications and compatible Web sites.  iPhoney will open any Web site that works with Safari (Safari 3 works best), simulate the iPhone user agent to test browser redirection scripts, and rotate Web sites in either portrait or landscape orientation. The tool is also pixel accurate to the iPhone, which has 160 pixels. But since most Mac displays offer between 72 and 96 pixels per inch, iPhoney looks about twice the size of an actual iPhone. The developers say that they soon plan to make iPhoney open source, though a date for that change has not yet been announced.

    Simulates exact screen sz

    Yes, but it nicely simulates the exact screen size of an iPhone. Kudos to MarketCircle for providing this for free. It will greatly help people to develop web applications that they want to have fit the correct dimensions of the iPhone. You don't need an iPhone to do web testing.

    The iPhone isn't even going to be available in Canada until who knows when, so that's extra kudos to MarketCircle for their efforts as they are a Canadian company.

    Confusing article

    What does "The tool is also pixel accurate to the iPhone, which has 160 pixels" mean? Perhaps "160 pixels per inch" was meant? And, shouldn't an indication of the actual resolution (480x320) also be given?

    C'mon, MacNN, I'm tired of having to try and interpret what is posted, to make any sense out of it...

    I'm tired of people reading with their eyes and not with their brains, and then complaining about it.

    How to close iPhoney app?

    Nice, but how do you shut it down? There seem to be no controls for doing just that (or am I missing something?).
