  • mp3Car now Smart Phone Friendly

    At long last mp3Car.com is now iPhone and smart phone ready.

    What does this mean?
    Our homepage will flow to fit smaller screens for better viewing. Also, all of our videos* are viewable on the iPhone. Your mobile device may also support the videos as well, they are mp4 640x360 at about 1mbps bit rate. with 44khz AAC.

    The forum itself has not changed, but we have future plans in place to make an optimized mobile interface for your mobile posting pleasures.

    *Older vimeo videos are not viewable without flash...Yet.

    Well I have always enjoyed the site from my HTC Touch Pro. Opera shows it exactly like on a desktop. So I am guessing this is more directed towards iPhone users? Its funny how a phone like the iPhone still can not view websites like normal. Also the forums automatically detect mobile browsers and makes it look simpler. So I am guessing the new optimizations will make it look like the desktop version?

        Well the front end of the site was using < tables > So on the iPhone it was all messed up. Because tables don't scale well.

        So now its all floating divs, something i've been wanting to do for a while.

        The new forum optimizations will be like a web app almost. Touchified buttons, simple design. View, Post, Reply kind of thing. Made for 3.5 to 4 inch screens.

          So what about us android users now.

          EDIT: Oooooh, this has zero to do with the forums. I see.

                    It also looks pretty bad using netscape browser 8.1 and internet explorer 6. j/k... Chunky kibbles, you do know that firefox is on 3.x now right? At any rate, Chromium is the new koolaid in the browser world and it looks fine there .

                      Some of us have jobs where, for one reason or another, we're stuck with it.

                        Perhaps you should be doing your job instead of browsing the Internet on company time? :P

                          what I want to know is what company doesnt update their software? I think were on FF 3.5.3. IE is 8. We are even getting ready to jump to Win 7. I am just waiting for things to settle a bit.

                          So is that why iPhone doesnt have flash? I guess they think the iPhone alone will make everyone choose Quicktime? Thats to funny. When ever a watch a movie and it gives me the option of quick time or flash, I use flash because quicktime always runs like $h!+. Half of the time anything that has to do with quicktime is broken.

                          I say if it aint broken, dont fix it. Its only iPhone people having issues, lol.

                            But, you answered your own question.. This is how most companies operate



                            OP, I think making mp3car mobile friendly is an awesome idea

                              ie6 and ff2 are major security holes and are not supported software by upstream providers. IMHO, that makes them broken.

                              I do concur though, some companies have really bad policies when it comes to software updates which makes them vulnerable. It makes me scared just to imagine your bank or something important like that running crap like that.
