Going back to iOS6? Flat chance, now that the PhoneJS demos are updated

18 September 2013

I know, I know. You’ve spent all day since 10am Pacific trying to update your iPhone/iPad to iOS7 and have finally got through the download crashes and the verification server issues and now have a shiny new look to your iDevice. Now, it’s time to play and see how the rest of the world out there has kept up with the new look and feel.

Of course, you just want to see what PhoneJS looks like on your new mobile Safari, and see if you can catch out those fine DevExpress developers.

Er, sorry:

Needless to say, since PhoneJS is one of the very few HTML5/JS framework solutions to automatically switch your presentation UI according to the device, these demo apps look like iOS6 on an iOS6 device, like Android on an Android device, and like Windows Phone 8 on a Windows Phone. It’s just that now, if we detect iOS7, we flatten the UI for you and get the font right. After all, you have more than enough work writing the app in the first place.

This in incorrect. Kendo UI Mobile does this as well. You should do your research before you start stating how unique you are. ;)
