    APEX Phone Test

    357241
      Hello,

      Hey everybody if you have a chance can you test this small application on the Apex Beta instance on your phones or small footprint device. it's an index page, a report and a form.

      http://apex.oracle.com/pls/apexbeta/f?p=mobile_test:3

      I'm focusing on Windows Mobile 5,6 and 6.1 devices , sorry that's just what the percentages tell me. Though please feel free to try other devices and or third party mobile browsers.

      This is a test of a two different things.

      1. The basic layout of Theme 19 (don't worry it will get a bit more colorful before release) to make sure it can be accessed in a majority of Windows Mobile browsers.

      2. Suppressing built in javascript and css to minimize page weight!

      Please leave comments in the application or on this thread, I will update this thread when i update the application.

      Here's a couple to questions answers before they are asked.

      Q: That theme is plain!
      A: Yes it is a very plain theme, The theme is based on minimizing both page weight and weight of external css.

      Q: Why is the logout going to be on the bottom, plus logout doesn't work!
      A: I'm trying to follow good elements of mobile design as closely as I can. http://www.w3.org/2007/02/mwbp_flip_cards#design_for_one_web
      The logout doesn't work because I didn't want to slow your testing down.

      Q: I just bought this very expensive iPhone thing and have seen websites specifically built for it that look and act way better than this.
      A: The iPhone is very nice and you will be seeing examples of a theme and application, for it in the future, it works great but sites need to be very specifically built for it to make them super iPhone'y cool. This is a generic theme meant to work on as many mobile devices as possible.

      Regards,
      Carl

          Hello,

          Looks like Blackberries might need to turn on javascript
          http://www.blackberryforums.com/rim-software/26163-how-enable-javascript-blackberry-internet-browser.html

          Can someone test who knows that they have JS turned on the Blackberry for sure.

          Thanks,
          Carl

            Carl (or anyone else in the know),

            I'm just curious if you've done any more with testing on the blackberry. The link above was not active.

            I'm in the process of adding a Blackberry specific section to our internal systems and didn't know if there was any insight before I dig in too deep. I've read the general html, javascript, and css related articles on the web and was specifically concerned about the APEX angle.

            For what it's worth, we're already using ApEx actively, but this will be first attempt to dedicate layout, content, etc. to Blackberry (and similar phones).

            Thanks in advance,

            Barney

              Please revisit and remove links when they become inactive - you placed the link for help; hopefully got your help - then left a dead-link after you got what you wanted.
              Sheesh!

                After reading thread +{thread:id=722990}+ perhaps you'll understand why posting pointless follow-ups to long expired threads is incredibly stupid?

                  Hey PissAnt, did you see how long ago this link was posted? Guess you ALSO are a newbie here.. Carl passed away a few years back, and was a VERY respected member of this community.

                  I (and probably quite a few folks) are waiting for your apology..

                  Thank you,

                  Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

                  If this question is answered, please mark the thread as closed and assign points where earned..
