[Micronet] converting Web sites for mobile phones

Phyllis Orrick
Hello all,

I have a client who would like to create mobile phone-friendly versions of an existing Web site. He found a commercial product, bmobile, but I'm wondering what everyone's experience has been with:
1. commercial products
2. coding it yourself.

This site is a plain html/css site. No flash.

Issues I imagine he will want to consider:
1. cost
2. persistence of access--I'm not sure if the vendor hosts the mobile site.
3. site security (no data security issues for these sites)
4. university it policies regarding 1 and 2  and 3.

Thanks,

Phyllis

Hi Phyllis,

Is this a UC client?  If so, then we should talk about the possibility of your using the Mobile Web Framework for this project.  Please take a look at  http://inews.berkeley.edu/articles/Apr-May2011/UCBMobileApp and then give me a call:  3-6163.

Thanks, Sara

I adjusted a (rather simple) html/css site by changing the html/css
myself (with suggestions from Micronet, thanks!).

A couple of hours of my time.

No change to the existing website in terms of how and where it is hosted.

No real change to security in my case.

> 4. university it policies regarding 1 and 2  and 3.

Given this approach, the changes I needed to make didn't bring up any
new policy issues.

Thanks for all for the replies.

I think the Mobile Web Framework will do the trick for us.

Best,

Phyllis

Re: [Micronet] converting Web sites for mobile phones

Judy Dobry-2
Just one more note on this.  Last week I saw a great demo of some
HTML5-based mobile applications that can do everything an iPhone or
Android app can do. For example, they can take advantage of the phone's
camera, touch screen, accelerometer, etc. They also work with any phone.

All of these apps are built on top of frameworks.  Some of the better
known frameworks are  phonegap  (http://www.phonegap.com/features),
Sencha(http://www.sencha.com) and JQuery Mobile Framework
(http://jquerymobile.com/).

To try out apps built using HTML5 go to http://www.openappmkt.com.

Finally, some of these sites are being effected by the Amazon EC2 outage
so you may want to try them tomorrow.

Judy
