The irony is that the iPhone is meant to show the ‘real internet’ and not the baby internet. This is essentially a baby internet site for the iPhone!

There’s no irony in providing an optional lightweight interface for the iPhone given its limited EDGE data speeds, regardless of the power of its browser.

Additionally, our mobile site remains compatible with most other smartphones.

We hope our mobile users on many platforms find it useful.

Does this optimized version of iLounge automatically come up when one navigates to the site via the iPhone, or does one need to first go to the regular site and click on a link? If it’s the latter, then I guess you could change your iLounge bookmark to the optimized site, but then that creates problems, because that new bookmark is copied back to the computer with which I sync my iPhone. Thoughts?

You can still view the ‘full’ version at http://ilounge.com

The mobile version URL is http://www.ilounge.com/mobile/

bstrunk,

I have found that the easiest way to avoid bookmark confusion on your iPhone is to create an iPhone-specific Bookmarks folder, and use it to keep track of all your mobile/iPhone links. Plus, it comes in really handy when used with Apple’s iPhone RSS Reader.

Great job guys!  I continually find myself still using mobile versions of website strictly because of the EDGE network on my iPhone.  This helps a lot!

great job on the site! I think its great that you guys are doing this. That being said, i’ll have to agree with craigb6. Though I wouldn’t necessarily call it a ‘baby Internet’. More like a really cool looking RSS reader.

Nice job ilounge.  While I am waiting impatiently for my iphone to get here it is really neat to see innovative things like this being developed.  The bottom line is that the iphone users will have more options.  Damn nice job and good thinking.

The real irony is that iLounge is not even Mac Safari (version 3.0.2) compatible. I can view the main page of ilounge on my iPhone but not on my MacBook??? Does the webmaster of this site even use a Mac? Has anyone else noticed that http://www.ilounge.com is completely scrambled when viewed with the the latest Mac version of Safari? (Yes I know I could use Firefox instead)

RavenFlight, we are all on Macs here. I’m not sure what the problems is, but we can view iLounge.com without any problems in Safari 3.0.2. I sent you can email so you can send me a screen shot.
