PDA Mobile Websites

PDA Mobile Websites
Over 3 years ago, I posted my small collection of websites optimized for PDA or small screen viewing. Since then I’ve had a steady stream of visitors (recently averaging about 10,000 page views per month) and some great referrals from other sites, but the page and its contents were being neglected and needed a refresh.

This past week I rewrote by bookmark system from an old database to del.icio.us. A short Perl script periodically grabs my del.icio.us bookmarks and creates the page content. Now as I discover new mobile websites, I can tag in del.icio.us and they’ll be picked up automatically.

Now that the new data flow is in place, I want to play with the UI a bit and try with some different layouts to understand what works best for this kind of mobile page.

If you’ve got a PDA or mobile phone, bookmark my page to keep this list at your fingertips: http://cantoni.mobi/
