Little Golem News: iPhone support

Submitted by Richard Malaschitz ★ on Tuesday, 21 October 2008

Since I am iPhone owner I usually play Little Golem games on this one. Because it was not very comfortable, I made special iphone pages for it and I change size of graphics in several games. iPhone users can type address and they are redirected to There are some screenshots from iPhone:

M - return to main page
S - skip game
I - info

Well, at least in 19x19, go boards are rotated from its original position... it is a little confusing for me :)

Submitted by Gregorlo on Tuesday, 21 October 2008

no, sorry, i really don’t know how i was looking at it. It is displayed perfectly right. :-)

However, I can’t see the invitations :)

Is there a significant difference in server load between the two styles of page? If so, and it’s more lightweight, should I change RoRoRo to read the iPhone page instead of the normal page?

I like the go board graphics!

The graphics are great. I’m on a windows CE smartphone, and its showing pretty well (though not perfect) in opera mini browser.

Thank you for all the improvements to our favorite site!

Einstein board is right. You play always from right-bottom to left-top.

There are not invitations and a lot of other things (game of empathy, waiting room, etc..)

to FatPhil: iphone page is really more lightweight. But even more lightweight is use xml format via

yes, well, I do prefer this way of playing Einstein, but in the non-optimized page it doesn’t work like that and it was confusing.

Thank you very much for all!

For simply playing another move, the iphone layout is nice on a regular screen as well (e.g. if your computer is used for other work officially, but you can afford some space on the desktop)
Very clear layout. Thanks, Richard.

Though, registration for a tournament goes too fast ...

You could add a little help button on the page since one letter abbreviations are not obvious (ex. S could stand either for ‘skip’ or for ‘Submit’). I like the graphics, but the page could be more self explanatory :-)

The Twixt board looks boring and difficult to view. How about some guide lines: Image Hosted by

Well. I change board and add guide lines.

For Go, the board looks great. Could we get the same look on the regular (non-iphone) page?

The iPhone site works quite well on my Android phone, so it would be nice if you added the redirect from to the iPhone site for Android too. Also, I think the toroidal go board should have a shadowed area like in the full site, it makes it much easier to understand the board.

I won an IpodTouch in a contest LG on iphone is great! But, i suggest that add the tournament code on the board of the game its an important information. what do u think?

The iPhone version is what keeps me so active on the site! But I was wondering if it was possible to make the buttons bigger in Go19?
