Shaking Web

  • Generic Company Place Holder Shaking Web

Using the iPhone accelerometer, Shaking Web compensates for small hand and body movements by jiggling the browser's screen. It functions by sensing movement and applying small but opposite movement to the viewable content.

I paced the office hallways looking somewhat like a moron, trying to read articles on the Web. It was still difficult and annoying. I had "turbo" turned on, which is not the default. Turbo applies forces in both vertical and horizontal movements, whereas the regular viewing mode only applies to vertical movements.

One of the bigger problems with Shaking Web is that it's not completed. As of this writing, pop-up windows are not supported and sites requiring new windows to open links will not work. That's a pretty big chunk of the Internet, so unless you're hanging out on stolid sites, Shaking Web is not for you.

Note: This link takes you to the iTunes App Store, where you can download the latest version of the software.
