    Dumb question, but i'm using the webos quick install and adding some tweaks. However i'm not sure what the spoof iphone tweak really is. Can anyone explain what it does before I add it? Thank you

    Tricks websites into giving you the iphone version of the sites. Seeing as how we share the same resolution, they are formatted perfectly for us. Doesn't work with all sites.

    Make sure you uninstall it before you upgrade to 1.2

    It'd probably be nice to have it built into the application too.

    A lot of sites that I tried before would just let you have access to to the iPhone version if you used iphone. instead of m. or www.
    Some sites even let you put i. like i.wund.com

    But I know that not all allowed this.

    I tried this tweak and went to my Google Email's mobile page and the formatting was all messed up for me. It lost all the nice, each Email in a colored box, look. It was just a list of emails then.
    It was the exact same page as before not re-directed to a different page, I used a shortcut and checked the URL.

    I removed the tweak, I cannot see an advantage to it, so far anyway.

    Don't use the WebOS Quickinstall version. Use this newer version instead. The new version works with more sites and has better compatibility. Hopefully this will be integrated into a newer Quickinstall release.

    I was just going to ask about the other version, so thanks for posting it, clipcarl.

    Some sites check for the iPhone to be rotated before they work. Anyway to mimic that somehow?

    It turns websites from thier normal version (sometimes very cluttered and ad filled) into more simple mobile versions. To be technical - when you type eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices into your web browser - you get the normal site. But if you have the iphone spoof on, you should be redirected to iphone.ebay.com automatically. It doesn't work on ALL sites, but most it does. Alternativly, you need to manually bookmark the moblle friendly sites.

    Some sites design a special version for Iphones, this is because iphones make up a very significant part of mobile traffic to the site.

    because the iphone and pre share the same screen resolution, these sites work perfectly on the pre.

    if there were as many pres out there as iphones they would have a 'pre spoof' for the iphone.
