As there is no checkbox control in iOS, it always become a bit of an issue on how to mimic that functionality in an app or in a mobile site. The Apple HIG is strangely silent on the issue, other than offering up a segmented control that will only accept a single choice. That's fine for a radio group, but doesn't work for something where you want someone to check a box before continuing, like accepting terms and conditions.
I was wondering if there is any suggested patterns for when you have settings options for a program and also have settings options for apps inside the program.
Do you seperate the settings or keep everything under the main program's settings and just add a section; if the user install one or more of the 40 available apps? With the possibility of 40 apps, it longer sounds reasonable to put it all together. Any suggestions?
At the IxDA Vancouver '09 conference, someone gave a demo of an application they were building that can be used to convert and prepare a website for use/view on a mobile phone—can someone give any info about this group, links? Also, if you know of any open source tools out there that can achieve the same goal, please share. Thanks
