NFL.com shows the way forward

Whilst wallowing in the New York Giants’ 4-0 start to the regular season, I drifted onto NFL.com this morning, and received a pleasant surprise.

The NFL.com site really fills a PC screen with images, flash and automatic Ajax calls to update content -not usually a good site for the iPhone.

However, the site detected my iphonne safari browser and through their wap.NFL.com URL, provided an excellent stripped down version of the site that felt like the MLB’s superior ‘At-Bat’ iPhone app (highly recommended for baseball fans).

A lesson in simple yet extremely effective design for all us web developers!

And the Giants give a lesson to the crowd-noise-piping Seahawks!
