Oomph for iPhone is a version of the Oomph tools that runs on the iPhone. It is designed for standalone applications only, and is not (currently) aimed at library applications.
Oomph for iPhone's primary purpose is to allow the creation of simple, standalone, iPhone applications, without the need for custom development/developers. Mogeneration advises that content be specifically designed with the screen size in mind and that Oomph for iPhone is not a tool for repurposing iPad-intended magazine content.
The main difference between Oomph for iPhone and Oomph for iPad to note is the much more concise menu, it only displays a Home and Share button. The application will only contain one issue, and will download this issue from our server on start up. If there is a new issue available, once the application has an internet connection, it will download the new content.
With only two exceptions, Oomph for iPhone supports most of the same features and files and will follow the same naming conventions mentioned through out the wiki. There is a list of supported features below.
Differences can also be seen when in the QA builds; clicking on My Issues will display the issues as a scrollable list, rather than 6 issues per page. When enabling debug, it will also provide you with the options as a scrollable list. This is due to constraints with the iPhone.
Oomph iPhone Standalone applications will not have the Status bar enabled and the whole screen will be utilised. When designing content for the iPhone please use the grid below for your reference on the different dimensions per device.
