>Emulate an iPhone [updated]

27 Aug

>Want to know how your web application will look and work on an iPhone, but you don’t own one?

iPhoney emulates an iPhone on your Mac OS X 10.4 installation. It uses WebKit for rendering, the engine that is also used by Safari.

Overall, iPhoney is quite nice. Here are some features that would improve it even further:

  • support iPhone-like scrolling and zooming, without scroll bars;
  • improve the zoomed out view so it looks accurate (this may be a WebKit problem instead of an iPhoney problem and may apply to the iPhone as well);
  • by default apply the iPhone user agent string, instead of a generic WebKit agent string;
  • although Flash is not displayed, when querying the installed plugins from JavaScript, Flash is indicated as installed (if it is installed in Safari).
