Mobile friendly m.giffgaff.com for mobile based topups

The idea: create a mobile friendly version of the website at m.giffgaff.com so that users can top up and buy goodybags from their phone.  Only basic functionality would be needed: sign in, buy credit, buy goodybag.  Users would have to set up their credit/debit card details via the main website.

Yes, the thread is hereSmiley Happy


I've got a little bit more testing to do, then I'll be having another chat with Vincent.

This is a great idea. I would imagine this would be helpful to all giffgaff users.

This is accepted, however we are working on releasing the API's for this so our community will actually create the functionality like xmob is doing already.

Any news on this development? I think this will be very useful and would urge on the developers.

We are looking into making the whole of giffgaff including the top up pages mobile friendly in the first quarter of 2011.

For iPhones there is a useful giffgaff app, but I think it isn't produced officially by giffgaff, and it only allows top-ups from vouchers. It would be cool if there was an official giffgaff app.

Any progress here?

If you could at least make the top up page mobile-friendly, that would be a great start. I hadn't realised just how un-friendly it is until I tried with Opera Mini. With Mobile View on, there is no way to select the top up amount. With Mobile View off, the top up amounts are visible but not clickable.
