Smith: an iPhone-friendly travel blog

If you happen to reading this on your iPhone, you’ll already know what I’m about to say –  namely, that you can now read Mr & Mrs Smith’s ever-lovelier blog on pocket-sized screens around the world in an Apple-friendly format, with no risk of compatibility snag-ups or slow-load nightmares. Whether you have an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you’ll find the Smith blog looks and functions just like Apple’s own software. Just like the day we launched the hotel-finder BlackBerry application, the half of Smith HQ that understands the phrases ‘WordPress plug-in’ and ‘mobile user interface’ is practically whooping with technophile glee.

Of course, unlike the BlackBerry application, we can’t take credit for the work on this one. The clever blogbods at Brave New Code have tinkered and tweaked to come up with WPtouch, a snippet of plug-in code that immediately iPodifies your pages. We’d encourage all you WP bloggers out there to get in on the action. And why wouldn’t you, when it makes your blog look like this?

Before joining Mr & Mrs Smith, managing editor Anthony Leyton was at The Independent, writing about universities for the Push Guides. As you can imagine, it was a tough task persuading him to exchange league tables for luxury holiday retreats and halls of residence for hip hotels. Anthony has penned pieces for publications both top-drawer (The Telegraph) and top-shelf (Fiesta), and he has had a love of travel ever since he found bullet holes in the walls of a hotel room in New Orleans. He also has too many pets. But that's another tale altogether.

    Hi Darren – thanks for the tip – am off to start loading. There are so many plugins it’s difficult to choose which ones are going to be truly useful!
