I use BrowserStack but on multiple occasions over a period of months have experienced rendering issues with Safari on OSX via their service – issues that do not seem to exist outside of their service. Once they get that fixed (not sure how serious they take my bug reports since they don’t always reply or reply with “it’s fixed” when it’s not totally fixed). The service is fast, affordable and would be nearly perfect as can be if the Mac testing was right, especially since BrowserCAM closed its doors. :(

Check this: http://codecanyon.net/item/flare-responsive-mobileoptimized-lightbox-plugin/2392703

Thanks but there does not seem to be an extended license option for that one so it’s not helpful to theme and template developers. It’d be great if it was offered with an extended license though.

fancyBox 2 is out and I was happy to see that it is truly responsive. I tested it on iOS, Android and Opera Mobile it and works very nicely. Does anybody know of other good responsive lightbox scripts or is this still new territory? I notice a lot of very good responsive themes using lightboxes that are not very mobile friendly. I recently hacked prettyPhoto to make it behave on mobile devices but of course hack jobs are not the ideal solution.

The problem with fancyBox 2 is that the developer license ($89) does not allow for distribution within commercial themes, templates, etc. I love how Isotope is licensed to allow for redistribution in projects and would be thrilled to see fancyBox 2 do something similar. So my question is, how much would you be willing to pay for a license to include a truly responsive and mobile-friendly lightbox in your templates and themes?

PS. fancyBox 2 is hosted separately from the original fancyBox: http://fancyapps.com/fancybox/

I’d love to see a price increase. I doubt a $5 or $10 increase would hurt profits because the themes would still be a bargain. Slightly higher price = slightly less sales (maybe) = same profit = less support burden = more time to make more and better themes = more profit in the end. Yeah?

You know, earlier I said I had just ordered a new PC because I couldn’t justify the cost difference between a Windows machine and a Mac. Well, let me just say that my shiny new “performance” PC came and then it went straight back into the box (waiting for FedEx as I type). I don’t expect a Mac to be perfect but I imagine it will at least boot properly? Hopefully my experience with Apple won’t be as disappointing as it has been with Dell, HP and Microsoft over the last several years.

Just saying, everything is made in china, not just Macs.

That’s for sure. My point is that they are fantastic marketers and one example is in saying “Designed in California” which sounds very trendy and is probably sometimes even mistaken for “Made in USA ”. It’s like how in Texas every Toyota Tundra comes with a sticker that says “Made in Texas by Texans”. Otherwise, many Texans won’t buy a foreign sounding full-size truck (even if the parts of American cars are just as foreign as any other). Genius marketing.

I’m waiting for the day I see a Microsoft sticker on the back of a car.

And waiting… =P
