TileStack hits the iPhone for HyperCarding on the go

Open and manipulate TileStacks on the go with this new HyperCard-like editor, that works on iPhones and iPod Touch devices.

As mentioned in previous coverage of service TileStack, there was a version optimized for iPhones on the horizon. Tuesday that tool has been unleashed, and it's pretty neat. With all the hubbub about native iPhone applications it's easy to forget about Safari being a platform in its own, and TileStack is a good example of what can still be done.

The Web application lets you access all your saved TileStacks and use them like little mini applications. You can go into your own stacks and make edits that will be reflected the next time you visit, as well as when you come back to the files on a regular computer. You can also browse through everyone else's stacks and access them on the go. It's about as simple as it gets.

One thing that's missing is the full editing and creation environment found in the standard Web version, meaning you won't be able to build any new stacks from your phone. It's something we're not likely to see outside of a native iPhone or iPod Touch application.

TileStack is still in private beta, so you'll need to sign up for an invite to give it a spin. In the meantime you can check out this video of it in action below.
