Description

This is the mobile version of the Hamilton Online website. It was aimed at iPhone, Android and BlackBerry devices.

My Role

I had to detect what device the user was browsing on, and render the appropriate templates. For this I wrote a function for ExpressionEngine that would set a global variable indicating that the device was a mobile or not. I also wrote custom JavaScript to handle external links when a user was on an iPhone but browsing from a standalone/fullscreen instance (i.e. they had saved the site to their home screen).
