In the last Found on the Mobile Web I listed Surf Europe‘s mobile site. I was impressed with the visual design of that site which was created by Mowave. In the post I mentioned that I needed to do some research to find more Mowave sites. Kjeld Kahn at Mowave saved me some time by emailing a link to company’s own portal at opnr.com which links to all their sites. Besides Surf Europe I’ve also covered Mowave’s Daily Mirror in another issue of FOTMW.
I’ve added the following Mowave sites to the Yeswap.com portal and Wapreview directory in the categories listed in bold. These sites not only look good but they work well and on every handset and emulator that I tried including wml-only devices. Of course, users of wml handsets won’t get the color and layout candy but they will see the full text and also the images if their handset supports them.
