Making a Website Run Full-Screen on an iPad

Common knowledge really but thought I would post this in case it helps anyone else…..

If you want to run a website fullscreen in Safari on an iPad:-

  1. Add this line into the <head> –  <meta name=”apple-mobile-web-app-capable” content=”yes”/>
  2. From Safari, save the site onto the home screen as a web app

Grant Skinner on the Future of Flash

Grant Skinner is one of my favourite Flash devs. His work, presentations and contributions to the Flash community are absolutely amazing. I have been looking forward to hearing his thoughts on the fascinating subject of the future of Flash. Unsuprisingly he gives a very intelligent, mature, balanced and thoughtful perspective. Enjoy.

Flash and HTML5

I just read an insightful and interesting article about Flash and HTML5 on http://www.theesoterictechie.com written by Christopher Long of http://flashinyourface.com/. It’s a discussion I have heard a lot in the last 6-12 months and the essence of this article seems to be that there will be space for both technologies in the future of web development, the key is using the right tool for the right job.
