iPhone-friendly LiveJournal interface

iPhone-friendly LiveJournal interface

Short, concise description of the idea
Create something similar to LiveJournal Mobile (http://www.livejournal.com/mobile/) but target it at iPhone users and have it take advantage of the iPhone's features.

Full description of the idea
The iPhone has a (nearly) full-featured web browser and Apple has detailed documentation on how to make web applications work extremely well on the iPhone (see: http://developer.apple.com/iphone/devcenter/). LiveJournal Mobile is functional on an iPhone but it doesn't take advantage of what the iPhone can do. The interface of LJ Mobile is noticeably spartan and could offer a much richer experience for iPhone users. For examples of good iPhone web apps, check out PocketTweets (http://pockettweets.com/) and JiveTalk (http://iphone.beejive.com/).

An ordered list of benefits
  • - Greater usefulness to Livejournalers with iPhones
    - It's cool
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • - Requires coding work. Perhaps you could tap into the work already done by Six Apart in this area? See: http://plugins.movabletype.org/imt/.
