Mobile DrudgeReport

Filed under: Mobile Phones | 4 Comments

DrudgeI spent about 20 minutes today and whipped up a mobile version of the DrudgeReport. I have been reading a lot of news via Opera Mobile lately, but Matt’s site is really bad for mobile viewing–the three columns get made into one huge one with big chunks of links that don’t change (the news sources/columnists). Great to have for regular browser viewing, but not so cool on a mobile device.

It’s still a work in progress, but I’d love to get some feedback. Basically it combines the header and three columns to make one column of pure rapidly changing content. The images can be quite large in file size though, so it still takes a few seconds to load.

You’ll need an HTML equipped browser on your phone/PDA. The default browsers should work, but I’ve only tested it on Opera. If I get motivated I could make a WAP version (anyone want one?). Most browsers have an option to load images or not, so an image-free feature wouldn’t be too hot.

Since this version clips out his ads, make sure and click doubletime when you’re visiting from a desktop browser.

    Looks pretty nice. I just tried it on my Moto Razr V3 and it works! I was hoping someone would do this as drudge’s site is awesome for breaking news. Thanks again.

    the images don’t line correctly with the text (caption) up on my Blackberry 7100. But it does load quicker….
