I used to be able to see my iphone optimized igoogle page by loading http://www.google.com/ig/i but now it keeps diverting to http://www.google.com/m/ig which doesn’t render for the iphone nearly as well! It loads rss feeds completely differently and you can’t scroll through all the feeds anymore without loading a new page!
Anyone else have this issue?
Just started doing this today 16/01/09
Needless to say it didn’t take long for the replies to start flooding in from people with the same issue.
It also didn’t take long for a reply from a google rep:
Hey everyone, I have an update for you. We’ve decided to direct iPhone users to the standard mobile iGoogle page. We’ve found that people hit iGoogle from lots of different phones — we want to ensure you’ll all see the same version.Most or all of your existing content should translate over to the standard mobile version. The only exception would be any gadgets that aren’t compatible with most mobile browsers.
We’ve got several articles in our Help Center about the mobile experience on iGoogle, which you can find in our Help Center (linked below).
Well that put the cat amongst the pigeons, and the forum went crazy! I’m not sure why google would change something that was working so well! People are threatening to pack up and leave googleville for yahoo arizona over this one!Lets hope google comes to the party and reverts back to the old igoogle page! Cliche I know, but if ain’t broke….don’t fix it!!!
