Recently, with the Google Web ToolKit, Google demonstrated an iPhone specific version of Google Reader. The main motive behind this demonstration was to come up with some new ideas. The iPhone Reader combines the Google AJAX Feed API with a user interface geared for use on the iPhone.

The new test was carried out to build a new application that can:

  • demonstrate a well-defined purpose that is useful to developers using GWT
  • take advantage of the always-connected iPhone platform
  • present a UI that is familiar to iPhone users and geared towards information presentation
  • demonstrate integration between GWT and other Google technology

Google is quite positive with this demonstration. Google said, “In our not-so-humble opinions, we think that the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and the Apple iPhone are two very cool technologies. Because we're all highfalutin computer-scientist types (as well as being irrepressibly geeky) we wanted to see what happens when you mix them together. Would it be like peanut-butter and chocolate, or hot-sauce and poison ivy? Our approach was to build an application that primarily targets the iPhone and to use that as a test-bed for new ideas.”

There is no doubt that Google has some future improvements planned for it. To know more about this, read Google Groups article.
