For mobile platforms that do not support full web browsing, or users who prefer "mobile ready" sites, Helios Calendar includes a striped down interface that allows users to browse & search events from mobile browsers. All event data including: description (without HTML), date, time, location and contact details are available via the mobile site. Search permits keyword/phrase search of event Title and Description but is limited to the ten most relevant, upcoming events.
Many mobile browsers support AccessKey mapping. Helios Calendar Mobile's default AccessKey mapping is:
1 - Today's Events
2 - This Week's Events
3 - Search Events
4 - Choose Language
0 - Help File
NOTE: AccessKey support can be modified by editing the mobile site file /events/m/includes/footer.php.
.mobi Domain Ready
The Helios Calendar Mobile site can be easily used in conjunction with a .mobi domain (pointing to your mobile site install). A sample is available at: HeliosCalendar.mobi - Helios Calendar Demo Site.
