    Looks promising. I like the layout!

    On my HTC Incredible (Android) the “mark all as read” doesn’t appear to be working. Also, can you put the “mark all as read” also at the top of the feed page so I don’t have to scroll all the way to the bottom if I only have one or two unread posts?

    Thanks — looking forward to using this.

    Looks and works great on my iPhone!
    Thank you!

    But two improvements for the iPhone Version:
    - As already mentioned by Justin, please place a “mark as read” button also at the top of a page and maybe reduce it to an icon (checkmark button or something like that).
    - The iPhone version needs a favicon in iPhone style. I bookmarked the page and added it to my homescreen, but the flat netvibes icon doesn’t match the other shiny icons. Since theres no netvibes app i really want to have netvibes on my homescreen for quick access.

    Haha! Well, i think the Androit got no chance!!!
    I mean the iPhone got much better technology!

    Can we have an option for the previous widget view? I don’t like the reader view. Getting an overview of my dashboard just be scrolling down the page rather than going backwards and forwards through tabs suited me better.

    Also, the new layout does not work with Opera Mini. Cannot move off the landing page.

    Ah, good point DPP!

    It works really great on my Iphone 3 GS! Thanks…

    hello guys,

    i loved using iphone.netvibes.com with my se xperia x1 with opera mobile 10.

    But the current version makes using netvibes a mess. after viewing a tab i need to reload to reset the view.

    please either modify the m.netvibes.com portal to be more finger friendly or make the iphone/bandroid version compatible with opera.

    Thanks a lot.
    Best regards Kay

    Just wanted to let you know that the iPhone site works great on WebOS phones such as the Palm Pre. Great work making it work with WebKit. I have just started using it and everything looks like it works. I have tested navigation and all of the buttons. They all work. Thank you for keeping us in mind as well by not developing a custom iPhone app. You may want to start testing with WebOS just for completeness since you now have the support.

    THANKS!

    Guys, you’re really awesome! Thanks a lot.

  15. #17 | be2 Matchmaking | June 21st, 2010 at 18:17

    Hi,

    a “&” in a tab name creates the wrong character (the typical “&amp” issue) on the iPhone version, when used on the Palm Pre.

    Sorry, I think the new netvibes beta is very bad IU on the iphone. The last mobile version on the iphone wasn’t great, but this is WAY worse. Why is there so much wasted real estate when scrolling through posts? There is too much white space around each post which makes scrolling down a real chore. There is no “mark all as read” at the TOP, requiring to scroll (chore) to way bottom to find ‘mark as read’. Only alternative to scrolling is to open each post, then to back to previous screen, open next post, repeat. Wow, really really bad.

    Use of gray totally overused. The unread messages are nearly the same shade of gray as read messages! Feeds take soooooo long to load.

    Plus, when I tried submitting these comments using my iphone, the comments box acts very weird, netvibes returned an error and I lost my comments. So I’m submitting these using my laptop now.

    Both links work perfectly well on my Nokia N900 – as well as the full page is rendered.

    How about something like a neutral URL

    http://touch.netvibes.com

    in order to support and promote Netvibes also for other touchscreen mobiles?

  20. #22 | Nils | June 23rd, 2010 at 14:06

    I really liked the overview UI of the previous netvibes for iphone. This new version, I am afraid, I will not use at all.

  21. #23 | Online-Caroline | June 24th, 2010 at 12:25

    I will!

    Great write up. The iPhone is truly revolutionary and I don’t like being without it. This time last year I had jumped in a pool with my iPhone and it was dead. I had to wait 10 days before I was able to buya new one. The phone I had was a cheap go phone. I really love all the apps that can be downloaded to the iPhone. The best part about the iPhone to me is the ability to check emails on the go. Thanks for the information.

  27. #29 | OnlineCaro | July 4th, 2010 at 22:38

    Has anyone already checked it with the new iPhone 4?

    there is no cool features in Iphone. Iphone software sucks cant do anything with it!! And everything opens a new program, Horrible way to make phone apps.

    Definately the best post I’ve read today. Just an FYI, my Motorola Cliq shows this page great in it’s browser.

    I hate this new UI – the previous one was so much faster when wanting to do a quick screening of all my feeds.

    How can you fail so miserably making this crappy new version? Give me an opportunity to choose which version of UI I want or I will need to change from Netvibes to something more useable

  38. #40 | Anny-Bed sheets | July 16th, 2010 at 09:47

    It’s fantastic.haha““

  39. #41 | frank | July 16th, 2010 at 13:06

    The mobile version of Netvibes is a step backwards:

    why?

    The number of unread messages is not shown in Netvibes’ mobile alpha version (using the e-mail widget). This means I cannot quickly see whether i have unread messages.

    In the “old” mobile and non-mobile sites of Netvibes the number of unread messages was shown from the widget.

    Does anyone have a solution or can anyone at Netvibes suggest me how to solve this. Is the “old” mobile version of netvibes still available (untill the problems with the mobile alpha version are solved)? Please Netvibes keep this old version accessible!

    Yes, we are working on several updates to enrich your experience. Stay tuned

    Netvibes mobile needs a favorites button, or a read later button.

    I keep switching between google reader and netvibes. Google wins on functionality and netvibes on presentation and usability.
