ORBlogs releases iPhone interface

Corvallis-based ORBlogs, the Oregon-focused blog aggregator, has announced the release of an iPhone interface. Interested users can access the simplified iPhone version via m.orblogs.com. (You can access that URL via a Web browser, as well, if you’re interested in a really big interface.)

ORBlogs’ new interface provides a stripped down view of its site content:

[Y]ou can browse all posts, Oregon-related posts, popular posts, and the top 15 topics from the last seven days. Clicking a post excerpt will take you directly to the post on the original blog.

iPhone users will also be happy to know that there is a custom icon for your iPhone desktop, if you choose to add it as a Web clip.

More is planned for the m.orblogs.com, including city-focused pages similar to those found on the ORBlogs site.

ORBlogs is run by Paul Bausch, one of the original developers on Blogger. An admitted side-project, ORBlogs provides a valuable resource to all Oregon-based bloggers by aggregating stories from across the state. For more information, visit ORBlogs.

  1. I love ORblogs.com….what a great resource. I’ll be checking out the new iPhone interface on my BB and *hoping* it works well for me.

    Thanks, Jeff. Definitely let us know how it looks on the Blackberry. Or any other mobile platform, for that matter. ;)

  3. its okay on the BB, but what I found is that the regular site actually works better on my mobile browser.

  4. Nice site — I had never heard about ORblogs before. Pretty cool. Funny how it seems that the “World Wide Web” is becoming more about the “local Web” via things like ORblogs, Twitter, PulseofPDX, SiliconFlorist, etc.
