Sprite your Images

A Sprite Image Example

Reducing HTTP requests is a great way to optimize your site. With HD images coming to websites I think it's best to create both a sprite.png and a sprite_@2X.png and use CSS3 @media queries or image-sets to add Retina-friendly graphics to your site.

** Not my fault if your site gets too fast **

Edge-cutting Mobile CSS

Scroll Initial view past browser bar

One nice thing about native iPhone apps is the ability for them to have a search bar that is basically negatively positioned on the y-axis. You have to scroll up to get it to it. This effect can be simulated with this simple jQuery script.
