    I am working on a iphone web type app and have it pretty much functioning…one of the issues is when posting a new status, it does post (the post form goes up and away) just like it should, the post updates your status on your status page, but the post form doesnt drop back down? any ideas>?

    Thanks! I figured out that the issue is that it is showing it as status-display instead of editible-status…kinda like it is not seeing that you are logged in, but yet does post the update?

    Ok, I was not thinking right. What is missing is the “clear” link on the new status. It is showing “Status Display” when it should be showing “editable display” in the class code. Anyone wanna give a crack at why that would be?

    I was thinking that it would be because it is not seeing the user as logged in, but of course it is…it posts to the correct users wire…

    @jschires,

    Job well done, don’t forget android version !

    Have a look at this sample of facebook style maybe the layout should be similar..

    @jschires,

    use the http://touch.facebook.com via iphone !

    Therefore: make it simple.

    A nice menu bar with all the features

    home,update,friends,inbox,

    then next bar

    News feed, photos, etc.

    or

    here’s another menu bar sample look at the layout.

    the grey area is the status etc !

    That is a clean layout! I will check that out closer. I do have mine setup to detect android as well although I do not have one to check it on ;-)

    ok…here is the next attempt with recommendations from Gp01! I do think this is a cleaner layout. Let me know what you think.

    http://mytwitbox.com/iphone-touch.php from a browser (for screen shots) or http://mytwitbox.com/mobile from your Iphone/Android device

    Never worked on something like a mobile app/site, but gonna deepen my knowledge of it. I might be able to help you with this in the future (if your planning on making this a plugin). :)

    Anyway, looks cool. Cant really test since I don’t have an Iphone, but looks good either way.

    @jschires, That’s better,clean and simple… I hope the android version is like this..

    Also, remove the grey area of the background between status just make it white background and a line between activity status.

    look at the FB touch, no curve bounders …

    or if you check any twitter app for iphone the tweets lay-out are the same, just tweets post with a line separating each tweet no bounders or curves.

    I hope you understand….

    For web apps there is no need for multiple versions for different devices such as iPhone/Android/WebOS, that’s the main benefit of doing a web app over a native one.

    Love the screen shots so far, looking great! Did you see the WP-Touch plugin for wordpress, might be some useful stuff you could use there.

    anyone have an idea on why the status is posting twice?

    Double posting is fixed (Thanks John!). Have a nice little “Status” update for the logged in user even when viewing friends profiles (similar to facebook).

    A few new screen shots of my mobile theme…

    http://mytwitbox.com/photo1.jpg

    http://mytwitbox.com/photo2.jpg

    Added notifications in a hidden divide using ajax.

    Added automatic updating of friends status updates/posts using ajax as well as a button to pull updates if you want to. Once I get all/or any bugs worked out I plan to release this as a mobile theme.

    I also added the auto updating of friends status updates/posts to my regular (pc) theme as well.

    I dont have an android, but I am told by someone I know that it does…and it should. I do have the settings in the script for android among other devices. I know it works on the iphone, LG Vu, and Blackberry’s for sure… If anyone has some cool ajax knowledge I could use a pointer on a conflict that I have with div refreshes and commenting. They seem to not like each other much at all.

    The commenting uses its own ajax (written by the plugin author)

    Hi jschires,

    I’m interested in that “Chat” button you have in your newest screenshots!

    Just wondering what chat plugin you’re using.
