It’s my birthday, and I’ve decided to give you all a present.
I read up and spent a while considering different apps I could build. Then it finally hit me: converting Dashboard widgets to iPhone webapps should be trivial!
Unfortunately, it’s not completely trivial if your widget uses the widget preferences, buttons, and/or back-face configuration stuff. But, it’s not impossible to emulate all that.
Lucky for me, I had a widget lying around that I’d written a few years ago. After a few hours of trial-and-error, I’m finally happy with it, and I’ve decided to release it to the world.
I give you the Spinner iPhone webapp. If you ever find yourself in a moment of indecision, tell the Spinner what your choices are and give it a flick.
If you’re without iPhone or iPod Touch, but you have a Mac running a recent OS X, I’ve also released the Dashboard widget, for you to relinquish the same decisive responsibility on the desktop.
