Random Quotes WebApp for iPhone


A while back, I posted the code for my “random quote of the day” widget for Blogger/Blogspot. Now I’ve tweaked it a bit to make it into a Web app for the iPhone (or iPod Touch). If you’re reading this from your iPhone, try it now at http://tr.im/ipquote!

It still pulls from the same online database. But now you’ll get a single randomized quote, displayed in large print, with at least the top part of the Mobile Safari chrome hidden. (I experimented with hiding all of it, but didn’t like the results.) Touch the top bar (the part with the standard “Reload” icon) to get another quote. Repeat until satiated.


Assuming you’re running the current iPhone OS, press the “+” sign at the bottom of the screen, then choose “Add to Home Screen” to save the app with a nice custom button.

Obviously, it’s free. Enjoy!
