I'm having trouble finding the developer portal for Seadragon Mobile. Does it still exist? Or has it been folded into Seadragon Ajax ?

Launch iTunes, go to the App Store and search for Seadragon.

Okay, that's where I would go for the app. Where are the developer tools for this?

There are no developer tools. Seadragon Mobile was a one-off, proof of concept demo of Seadragon running on a GPU powered mobile device. We're not providing any dev tools for iPhone.

Seadragon Mobile is extensible through RSS feeds linking to user supplied Deep Zoom content.

The only "developer" info we used to have was how to format the RSS feeds Bill mentions. You can get that same info here now:

Maybe this is a silly question but is there a plan for an Android App?

No plans. EDIT: but actually, we'd love to hear what it is in particular that you would want in said app. I'm a huge proponent of the open web, and perhaps Zoom.it could satisfy as a mobile web app that works on all mobile platforms. =)

hmm - yeah i would be interested in an android app - due to the fact that deepzoom content though lives in the seadragon app on the iphone instead of browser i switched to a pure ajax based zooming solution with flash for backup... seems like a pretty cool product but maybe it will be more useful in a year or so...

Not sure what you mean -- Seadragon Ajax works on mobile browsers already, including iPhone and Android. We don't have touch support out of the box but that's easily addable on top using the API.

Oh really? Hmm I could not get that to work. I built a Seadragon Ajax site but the content only worked 'sort of' using Opera ... Maybe I did something wrong though...

What was the problem exactly?
