Message-ID: <20081222221038.GB22763@owl.prv.maya.com> (raw)

As a more-useful alternative to my ha-ha-only-serious "email"
response, look at the export-to-HTML functions.  I haven't gotten here
yet with org-mode, but I understand they're pretty powerful -- and
HTML is perfect for the iPhone.  A robust HTML interface to your
org-mode would be much more useful than a native iPhone app, IMHO, and
without the landmines of interfacing with iCal et.al.

My previous organization system (Python-based) had a simple CGI
interface to parse my sources into HTML with CSS for the iPhone; it
worked surprisingly well, including hyperlinks that sent me email
noting that I'd "checked off" an item -- I didn't trust myself to
actually change state from the iPhone, but sent a "check off the item
manually" reminder.  

Once I've got my Emacs-native org-mode where I want it, I plan on
tackling the iPhone display and sharing my code with the list.  It
should be pretty easy to write a mod_python handler to pull org-mode
source from Git or Subversion and run that through the elisp
interpreter...

But seriously, you could totally expose your agenda view as an IMAP
store...
