Hi - I'm sure most of you are familiar with www.pricespy.co.nz

Annoyingly, when I visit the site from my iPhone (or any mobile browser for that matter) it must detect you are using a mobile browser and renders it for such.

However, it is just horrible!!!

Most sites which are rendered for a smaller screen have a link to the full site, or you can at least hack the address so that it directs you to the full site. No so with pricespy.

Can anyone tell me how I can get to their full site from my iPhone browser??

Cheers
Craig

Hey Craig,

Just had a look - I'm not convinced it's serving a different version for your iPhone.. I think it's more likely to be that your iPhone is having trouble rendering the poorly formatted html they are using on their site. Not much to be done other than asking them to look into it.

Good luck.

You know what.....I think you're right.

Pity.

I'll pass on my thoughts re their site and see what they come back with.

Cheers
Craig

Try www.priceme.co.nz on the iPhone works a treat for me and has the same info as price spy and lots more.

Wow. Cool site. Broader range of consumer products so they dont necessarily fill the same niche, but very useful.

And like you say, a very good mobile site which makes it good for browsing in-store just prior to handing over your cash.

Cheers

The mobile version of PriceMe is faster and saves you download costs, and has the same price and product information as the main website

I like the quick simple interface of mobile priceme site however search results seem to have fewer results
Although not optimised for mobile, the site staticice.co.nz is still quite usable on the iPhone.Shame about the yahoo ads.
