Hi all,
I was just wondering if anyone knew good examples of date search on
mobile web.Specifically talking about html driven stuff, not iphone
apps.

The difficultly with date based searches on mobile, I am realising is
error prevention (in the absence of relying on ajax) and fatigue at
the prospect of interacting with multiple and very long pull menus.

I have a bunch of quick links to commonly used date ranges - ie, this
weekend, but I also need to provide the flexibility to allow users to
choose any singe date in the future or a date range.

Have spent sometime thinking about this issue, and am yet to feel
confident about any one solution.
Thanks in advance!
:)
Melissa

I know with Blackberry you can scroll through very quickly. I wonder
if you could do flash remoting on mobile. I know it works well in
the traditional sense but never tried it in a mobile app.

Very interesting subject. Never thought about the use of searching
on mobile and I could see how it could become a pain in the a#@
quickly.

Be interested in your progress.

Mike
