Mactracker + iPhone/iPod touch

Saturday, November 10, 2007 1:57 PM
By popular request, I am going to be releasing a version of Mactracker for iPhone and iPod touch alongside the next release of Mactracker for Mac OS X.

It will be available as a web app to start though that may change once Apple releases their SDK in February 2008.

Just a quick note with regards to Mactracker's Leopard compatibility. Version 4.3.1 works just fine under Leopard. If you do run into any issues don't hesitate to drop me an email.
