Friday, July 6th, 2007p>The default look of a web page is pretty bad. Simple white background with ugly black lettering. Nothing nice.
With the iPhone though, it doesn’t look half as bad, and now, thanks to Joe Hewitt (again) there is an even better base.
You can simply use his native looking navigation skin to make your applications look and feel like a native iPhone application.
The magic sits in:
- iphonenav.css: The CSS makes the standard elements look like real iPhone elements thanks to magic like “-webkit-border-image: url(iPhoneButton.png) 0 8 0 8;”
There is still more to do of course. It would be great to give developers simple access to the red deletes, the blue buttons, the twisty round deletes, and more. This allows anyone to build an app that will look decent and just like the iPhone apps that users are used too.
Thanks again Joe!
