I think this is a good intermediate solution for those with more
sophistiated smartphones. The site does need to be accessible from all
phones, not just touch/Webkit phones ultimately; I still want to work
with well-formed XML feeds that Jessica is slated to provide when her
time frees up. JQuery Mobile does crash Android phones at times and
HTML5 is often slower to process than straight HTML/XML - but this is
excellent work, Nathan, and will provide more ease of use and
readability than we currently provide.

I am in favor of Nathan's suggestion to attach this as the mobile
version of for the time being. Nathan - are you planning to
make this an auto-detect or do people have to remember
when on their phones? I can work with the auto-detect logic on the
main server if necessary.

I've developed the first pass of a mobile web front-end for NYCGA that
should work on most recent mobile devices. While it does use HTML5 and
Javascript, this same code based could be used to create an even more
streamlined site for non-smartphones. Otherwise, no apps or downloads
required, and the content is all pulled in real-time from the main site.

You can test it on your mobile phone by browsing to:

Github project and GPLv3 licensed code is here:

Please test and contribute your thoughts and feedback. You can just
