    @modemlooper

    Worked on my iPhone theme today. Taking suggestions on a name for the theme.

    Couple I thought of:

    BuddiPhone

    BuddiPress

    Here is a screen shot of the activity page.

    It’s going to be a major renovation. Had to re-arange the entire commenting on activity. The way native apps work is link >> landing page so I removed the commenting from activity streams and changed the reply link to go to the permalink where all the comments are listed. A much better flow for a mobile screen. Easier to crunch info.

    Wow! That looks awesome! Really, great job! :) Here are some names I thought of:

    BuddyPhone, MobileBuddy, BPphone, BuddyGo (Buddypress on the go)

    its all really a matter of taste for the name. In my opinion, I think BuddiPhone already sounds great!

    @Andy or anybody who may know.

    Where in the theme files can I edit the code for an activity post that says where and when with the view and delete links. I don’t see this anywhere.

    I need to relocate this if I can.

    Making it work on default install then will add in support for some of the plugins. Tweetstream, Oembed and Gallery. Not sure how that will work as they have their own theme files.

    You can look at the start of this theme. I have it activated on test site. I have only been working on activity stream.

    Viewing this on my iphone right now and it look pretty good. I always wanted to see a BP iPhone theme. Also am looking into jQuery / jQTouch into making a BuddyPress actually look like an iPhone app but first things first.

    Great job so far.

    I tried jqtouch and uikit and both had some JavaScript conflicts with some plugins.

    I’ve managed to get iui kit working with it. It’s a significant leap from a basic theme to actually looking and acting like a native app with sliding navigation. iui was used to build the facebook iphone app.

    Though I have to rework the entire navigation structure.

    Choose BuddiPhone as the name.

    Coolio! Did you figure out how to remove the view / delete links? Let me know if you need help with this.

    Well if its hacking core I don’t want to do that. That would cause headaches on updates. Still deciding on how this app will work. May kill some of the filters. It’s a bit much to use on mobile.

    What are the necessities?

    You wouldn’t have to hack the core, it would be a filter.

    We could probably check to see if a user is using an iPhone or mobile phone using this PHP library:

    http://detectmobilebrowsers.mobi/

    And then apply a filter to remove the view/delete links if it’s an iPhone.

    Very impressive, don’t forget android phones and also enable other plugins to integrate well with the theme like events, gallery etc…

    That’s the future for web sites to make it mobile!

    Nice job, looks awesome, will this be a real app or just a theme?

    @ Gpo1: How many off the mobile web users have android? I’ve only been building for iPhone myself.

    @Xevo kinda a mixture, a Thapp? LOL

    It’s not an app, users will not have to download anything. There will be two versions a free basic version and a premium with options.

    @Gpo1 you cannot upload to the web from an iphone so creating photo galleries will not work. The only way to get images onto a site from an iphone is through a native app that allows upload access or by emailing. Any plugin that can work and has good support will be made to work with the premium version.

    All I have to say is I’m getting a serious BP theme education from doing this project.
