Make a Mac app out of any Mobile site.

This is a really cool small tutorial I picked up today before work, it basically runs Mobile sites/ web apps as a app of your mac and you can put it in your dock or lunch pad. All you need is the Automator Application that comes free with every Mac. I am running lion at the minute not sure if it will work on any previous OSX. 

First we need to get the URL for what ever site we want to make, for this example I’m going to use Facebook. here is the URL you need http://iphone.facebook.com.

Now open automator you need to choose new Application.

.

Now click on to Get Specified URLs, Change the URL to http://iphone.facebook.com

Next Click on to Website Popup. Here u can change the size of the window that the app will display in. I just used the default iPhone size (320x480)

Now you just need to click run. You should have a nice Facebook window, next thing we need to do is save it as an app, click file save then name it Facebook, save it to you desktop.

You should now have a app on you desktop with the default automator icon, the next step we need to do is change the icon. You can download the icon here http://d.pr/A11t 

once you have the icon downloaded right click the icon and select “Get info” and do the same for your Facebook app. 

now on the top left of your info on the Facebook icon you need to click the icon so it highlights blue the hit command-c to copy it, then on the info of your Facebook app click the automator icon at the top left so it highlights blue and hit command-v to paste the new icon in. 

I hope I have explained it well enough for you, any questions please contact me via email vincentamilliken [at] gmail.com.
