iPhone development is continuing to sprint. We are seeing apps sprout out every minute or so, and various tools are coming online.
Here is a short update that touches on some items that we have found of interest:
PickleView is an application that mashes up twitter and baseball. If you are out somewhere with your phone, login and chat about the game with others.
Google AJAX Search
This iPhone specific site runs an Ajax tabbed control in a form factor for the iPhone itself.
TinyBuddy IM: Instant Messaging for iPhone
James Burke (who will be speaking at The Ajax Experience on xdomain issues) has released TinyBuddy, which is an IM client for the iPhone that differs from others in that it:
- I do not see your password ever — sign in securely using the AIM OpenAuth servers.
- It uses AIM’s Web AIM API: a Comet API that uses long polling so that it works cross-domain. I shorted the polling and added a delay between polls to help with the sometimes unreliable network on the phone.
- You can specify your own CSS file if you want to style the UI differently.
The games, the games. Diamenty gets you some bejeweled fun for the iPhone.
iPhone Link Directory Generator
The iUI generator takes an OPML file and will generate a simple iUI layout for you.
Leaflets is another application homepage for the iPhone.
