Spinner!

It’s my birthday, and I’ve decided to give you all a present.

I needed a break from Riak & BeerRiot last week, and the thing everyone was talking about was iPhone webapps.

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.

Enjoy!

This also gave me an excuse to upgrade the Webmachine installation on BeerRiot. Virtual hosts for the win!
