Honey, I Shrunk My Website
(Page 1 of 2 )

Small is good, if you want to make your website content available to users of PDA's (personal digital assistants). Although PDA hardware and software capabilities can't match those of a desktop machine, you don't need to settle for an anaemic handheld version of your site. With careful planning and smart coding you can create an elegant PDA-friendly site.

This article shows you how to join the bleeding edge with minimal risk and effort. I'll focus on using AvantGo (http://www.avantgo.com) as the delivery mechanism, though the much of the information here can be applied to alternative PDA browser solutions (see below).

AvantGo provides users with free browser and syncing software. For the developer, there's a quick online tool for building the AvantGo channel to which users can subscribe. All in all, AvantGo is truly a killer app for PDA's.
