I wrote a mod that is supposed to be submitted for SMF approval this weekend by Fabius85, the author of smf4iphone.  The final version is improved over the beta I was toying that uses a free service to check if the member has a mobile device then it checks the editable UA list from the mod settings and directs to one of 3 themes based on the UA and a failsafe 4th theme or a SMF built i theme. 

In the link I gave you before, that was mentioned. You are going to have to wait and see if it will be approved or not.

You can use this:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=298258.msg2473150#msg2473150

The mod had been submitted for approval.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2035 might work well on an iPhone.
It does, but the interface theme for iPhone is different, the one form farfromperfection

Yeah.

Steve51184, there are quite a few options, just gonna have to settle or wait till that one mod/theme I pointed out to you comes out. Cause there aren't many options left.

Not really. There is a mod discussed in Coding Discussion that's being beta tested that does make advancements in this direction though.

right i've tested both options (curve-mobile and tapatalk) here's my thought's / opinions :)

the 'curve-mobile & curve-mobile-mod' web based option

this one was very easy to install and i just uploaded the theme/mod installed them and was all set

i then opened my site on my iphone and it all just worked fine the only problem is is that it's not really formatetd for the iphone and although it is better for smaller screens it's still unusable/unreadable (much in the same was smf is now on the iphone)

in other words a lot of the 'useless stuff' has been removed to use the smaller screen better but things like fonts are still VERY small

end result? some might say it's better then without it but for me it just removes a lot of smf's functionality and doesn't make it any easer to use

maybe someone with an iphone and some css skills and give the fonts (etc) a little tweak and make this perfect?


the 'tapatalk' native app option

first off this is a native app for the iphone and not a website like above but it's a paid app (there is a free app but you only have read support) and the paid one is $3

right i installed the mod and 'registered' my forum with the tapatalk network and verified my site... again just like above everything went smooth

after starting the iphone app i had to search for my site via the search tab then clicking my sites name brings up the site (it'll auto load back into the site on next launch- very nice!)

after a bit of playing this is JUST what i want and everything looks/works fine

end result? this looks VERY nice and imo is the PERFECT option... ALMOST!

if i could have the name of the app and the icon changed and for it to load into my site on first launch (with no options for other sites) it'd be amazing and i could release it as an app for my site but as i can't do that and it's $3 i'm still left without any real options but so far this is quite good but saying to my members "buy this app and search for the site bla bla" isn't really an option but i'm getting closer :P
