What is the URL for the ePz mobile site?
It's a bit bare at the moment. We will be overhauling it in the soon.
I've tried several apps for Facebook etc, but always end up on the mobile sites through Opera - I find the apps usually don't update well, don't display what I want and any images are dreadful.
I'm using android btw.
Quote: I was a bit skeptical about that claim but I can see how it would make sense for Facebook to do that and the HP would look different from the Android app because they'd access different mini-websites. How do you know about that Sparkleson? Why does the Facebook app update quite often on Android (and I have replace the old app with a new one) if Facebook can just change the website at their end?
The news floated round the developer community a while back. The reason for the constant updates is likely more device related - i.e. Whilst the website can control the look and feel of the app itself, the notifications and alerts can only be handled by the physical app. As new hardware devices are released, and as the OS is updated, Facebook would have to update the app to support these new devices.
So the apps are a bit more than just browsers, they will make calls to iOs, Android etc so that notifications, polling etc work on those operating systems and devices. I think you're saying that they'll access the same data as Facebook's php website, bring it to the devices as HTML, then use a browser engine to render the HTML?
