Oooh – this is the ultimate of cool. Okay, so I spent my Thanksgiving night in complete geekdom, but I’m loving it! Tonight, I made one of my websites smartphone compatible!
One of my genea-duties (is that a word?) is serving as the webmaster for the NCGenWeb project. I became webmaster in July and have really enjoyed it and come to know so much more about the state since beginning. Tonight, as I worked on various web tasks for our project, I had a thought — I should see if I can make the site compatible for a smartphone. I thought about this as I was playing with my own new smartphone, a Motorola Droid that I got the day it came out on November 6th – that thing is just downright sexy.
So, I looked for a plugin since I have the site in WordPress, quickly found one, and in 5 minutes had made the site iPhone, Droid, Palm Pre, etc. compatible. How many times can I say that I just love WordPress! Check out the video clip I made on what it looks like.
I can’t wait to make all my other WordPress sites mobile compatible as well, including this one! Tell me, do you use smartphones for genealogy? Tell me in this survey!
