Leverage iPhone web applications within Liferay

Company Blogs January 27, 2009 By Julio Camarero Staff

Hi everyone,

Today I just wanted to highlight one of the many possibilities that Liferay portlets can offer.

As mobile devices with internet access are becoming more popular, lots of useful web application are being adapted to these smaller screens. Web applications adapted to the iPhone look amazing and they are very easy to use.

The good news is they can be directly used within Liferay as portlets!

iPhone web applications in Liferay Portal

The process is really simple:

  1. Add an iframe portlet to your page in Liferay
  2. Go to Configuration of this portlet and set the Source URL to the iPhone web application URL (listed below)

That's all! Some nice iphone web applications which can be used as Liferay Portlets are the following:

  • Facebook: http://iphone.facebook.com
  • Linkedin: http://m.linkedin.com
  • Twitter: https://twitterforiphone.com/login
  • Digg: http://www.digg.com/iphone/
  • ...

A new wiki page has been created so that anybody can share more web applications for iphone or other mobile devices that can be used within Liferay: www.liferay.com/web/guest/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/iPhone+web+applications+within+Liferay
