Here’s the scenario: Monday night I’m sitting at the 49ers game, wondering what’s happening with the Giants. I pull out my iPhone and go to both the ESPN and MLB.com websites to keep tabs on the ball game. Both of these websites have mobile versions of their sites, but their geared to normal web-enabled cell phones, not the iPhone (and, as we all know, web design for the iPhone is completely revolutionary).
So, I decided to take it upon myself to built a better site. And now it exists as MLB Mobile, available at http://www.loganrockmore.com/MLBMobile/. And yes, it does that thing that a few people hate where the site is disabled on any browser that’s not the iPhone.
Anyway, I hope that explains some of my thinking. Give the app a try and definitely let me know what you think. I do plan on adding a few more features at some point, and unlike desktop apps, I can do it at my leisure (thank god!).
We’ll see how it fares at Saturday’s Niners game…
