    Talking Forum.Different : Read AppleInsider & (soon) Forums on your iPhone

    Hi all, check out my web app. Alpha testing stage. Feedback welcome but please take it easy, I kinda cobbled this whole thing together in 3 days all using free hosting, googling php code etc. etc. :hack: ...A lot of the API is modified from Joe Hewitt's iUi ( http://code.google.com/p/iui/ )

    I'm not a developer. I'm a concept guy (that's my excuse anyways). I wish I had a few good coders around me. But alas, that is not the current state.

    Anyway, getting this out there, enjoy! Note: use the URL exactly as it is or you will get a weird page...

    http://flame-research.110mb.com

    Remember, load it in your iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch, with 2.0 Software.

    I guess it is a proof of concept, alpha stage, using free hosting all at their "best effort" speeds.

    Let me know as well if you feel there are iPhone web apps that you think are really good for reading forums... I am not too sure if I have come across any.

    News readers, definitely heaps, but I love forums, hate online chat. So... well, you get my drift.

    The next step is obviously an API that interacts with the forum itself, for example, vBulletin based etc etc.

    I am using the page scraping technique here because it is the best way to "digest" a forum website without needing time and trouble on the part of the forum operators. I still intend to respect all content owners and their intellectual property, etc.

    Of course, if there is any commercial angle the advertising and revenue streams of the forum website can be incorporated into the Forum.Different application...

    See www.dapper.net - I was inspired a bit by their big plans. They don't have an iPhone version yet, AFAIK.
