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.
