Iphone/Ipod Touch Webapps

Here is a small collection of webapps presented in a Grazr widget layout optimized for Iphone. The opml reading list is a collection of webapps that I have found useful. The list have no direct links to bookmarklets due to the fact that if you want a functional reading list you have to include the "http:// tag", a tag not included in javascript bookmarklets, but I have links to collection of bookmarklets presented on webpages.


Bookmarklets and Ipod Touch/Iphone

Safari bookmarklets could make your information retrieval a lot easier when using Ipod Touch or Iphone. A bookmarklet is an applet, a small computer application, stored as the URL of a bookmark in a web browser or as a hyperlink on a web page. The term is a portmanteau of the terms bookmark and applet.

Whether bookmarklet utilities are stored as bookmarks or hyperlinks, they are designed to add one-click functionality to a browser or web page. When clicked, a bookmarklet performs some function, one of a wide variety such as a search query or data extraction. Usually the applet is a JavaScript program.

Here is some links to actual bookmarklets and the topic:

Book tip of the day

Peter Stark: At the mercy of the river ISBN:0-345-44181-8

A true exploration of the last african wilderness. A breathtaking journey down the Lugenda River in the Niassa province of Mozambique. The 750-kilometeres rivercourse is largely uncharted-dotted with rapids, waterfalls and home to deadly crocodiles and hippos. Another challenge was the fact that two of his four travel companions were not skilled kayakers.
