Mobile Calendar

October 1st, 2009 by Erick Beck

After about a week playing with the style sheets and previewing it on every phone I could get my hands on, I think we are finally ready for a version-1 release of the mobile view of the Campus Calendar.

Kudos go out to the UNL developers who saw a need for this and made it so easy to integrate into our setup.   Both this version and the standard version point to the same database, so you’ll be getting the same content, just in an easier to use small screen view.

As an aside, styling for the mobile device is very different than developing for the desktop.  There is next to no browser continuity, and even different browsers on the same device will show things differently.  We are going to use this as the start of a larger foray into the mobile world, so it will show to some degree what to expect.  We will be taking the 320×240 screen size as our default to make sure we are compatible with older Blackberry devices, but will at the same time try to make it look good on iPhones, Storms, and other high-end devices.   We are just getting our feet wet in this arena, so if you see something we could improve on feel free to give us a yell.
