Since Apple launched its iPhone, we have been litterally flooded with requests for a version of MetrO running on the device. However, as you probably all know by now, the iPhone is a closed box without any possibility to install 3rd-party software. At least until Apple changes its mind - which in my opinion is not very likely in the near future - or unless you are a very good friend of Steve J. - which we are not, unfortunately.
The only kind of 3rd-party applications the iPhone accepts are services provided through the Safari browser - and a network connection, of course. It's the reason why, so far, we have redirected users to our i-Métro online service, preferably in its mobile flavor.
With the launch of Netvibes Mobile today, it is possible that a better option has become available. The special iPhone version of their platform is supposed to be able to run the Netvibes modules, including our own which offers more features than i-Métro mobile in a nicer user interface.
If you want to try it, go to the Netvibes site from your PC, create your free account if you don't have one yet and add the i-Métro module to your page (click here for a quick addition). Now point the Safari browser on your iPhone to http://iphone.netvibes.com , sign in and the module should be there.
Let us know if it works as advertised and what you think of the i-Métro module...
