I have an IPhone and have added OZZU to my home page. Is there any way you could create an apple-touch-icon.png? I just think it would look cool.

I never even heard about this until now. Just looked it up and understand how the iPod and Iphone look for it when placing a bookmark on the device. It normally does a screenshot of the page, but will use the icon instead if specified. I will try and get this done shortly.

Okay it is done, and I just tried it on my iPhone 4S and iPad and it worked for both! Please confirm it works for you too :)

Hmmm. I might have to reset something on my phone. It might be a caching issue?

Try deleting the bookmark, and then closing out your safari browser. Then go back to the site and try to bookmark it again and see if it updates for when you re-add it to your home screen.

Thanks BWM! Maybe someone should write up something about that for OZZU. I might put something together.

He's not wrong to ask though. It is well overdue.

It is actually on the list. A mobile version of Ozzu, as well as an actual APP. Don't hold your breath though, it will most likely be awhile.

I no longer have an iPhone, so it makes little difference to me. The site is still usable on the built in Safari app. Not as bad as some may think.

I have used Ozzu on with Safari on my iPhone as well as the iPad. It works, but it isn't the greatest for using on the phone. I think the most annoying part is I have to zoom in and out alot to get through everything like logging on. I think a mobile version will be the first step, and that will make things much better for all devices. An actual iPhone APP will be sometime after that.

Will probably look into that as well. I do know a mobile version of the website will come first which will work on all of them. Then later maybe more personalized APPs.

I am sure the list will only go on and on lol. That is why creating a mobile version of the site first will be the best way as it will support all of them simultaneously.

Does Ozzu/phpBB even expose an API? There's got to be some sort of JSON extension that would enable this. I wouldn't mind dabbling with it if you got around to it :)

With the current Ozzu/phpBB it does not. I would love to create something like that in the next version of Ozzu so that anybody could create "APPs" if they wanted for a variety of services.
