Dripbook's got mobile versions of exported websites for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
Posted on 29th April 2010 by Alex Wright

Everyone's talking about mobile, and especially in the wake of Apple essentially saying they'll never support Flash on iPhones and iPads, everyone's asking how Flash websites will translate to mobile devices.

We've been working for a while on mobile display options for websites exported from Dripbook. We're proud to say that we've got it all working - vistiors on iPhones, iPads, or Android mobile devices who view websites exported from Dripbook will now be snapped automatically to a view custom made for each mobile device.

What you need to do to make all this work is to re-export your website file (that little "index.html" file) to your web host. This new feature won't work if you don't do that.

Video plays, image books display horizontally on iPhones and Android phones and vertically on the iPad. Your contact and bio information you put on your exported website is displayed and email links are maintained.

The mobile version of the Dripbook website still works as it always did - in fact, these new mobile versions of the exported websites are built heavily on the original mobile version of the Dripbook website released back in February of 2009. For those of you without exported websites, you can still view and show off your work on Dripbook on a mobile device at m.dripbook.com/YourUserName

Let us know if you have any questions...

Hello Alex and Bo, I want you guys to know how grateful I am for taking the time to go the extra mile to fix my export host hangups that I called in about last week. I spent so much time and money to get out to the Portland IACP conference for new business only to find out that my website was a miss once I arrived. When I called you from the conference I wasn't sure what could be done. I wasn't even sure if I would get anyone to personally talk with me about my unique situation. But to my surprise the complete opposite happened. By the time I got off the phone with you my site was up online again plus my iPhone (html) version of my site was brilliantly redesigned! You guys saved me huge and hooked me up with another great service in one call. Joining up with Dripbook has turned out to be the best money I have spent on my business in the last couple years. So a super huge hi-five to Dripbook. I really appreciate your heavy knowledge and commitment to individual attention. d Best regards, Derek Richmond Food Photographer http://www.derekrichmond.com derek@derekrichmond.com

Hi Jeff. Send an email to support@dripbook.com if you are experiencing trouble. What is your exported website's URL?
