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.
