I have an AppleScript that allows me to auto refresh the page that I'm on for an adjustable amount of time in seconds. Is there anything like this available for the iPhone? Do AppleScripts work on the iPhone?
Cheers,
Chuck

some webpages auto refresh themselves but as far as setting the page to autorefresh i don't think we have the option.

The only website I've been to was watching a live sports ticker for an NFL game on CBSsports. It had an option of auto refresh every 15 seconds or manual. But that was setup on the website & not the phone itself.

Solved!

This is a working example that will do the trick.
I just tested in my iPhone and it works!

Create an HTML file and upload it somewhere.
Then access it through your Safari browser or any other - this works for all browsers, not only in the iPhone.


<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30">
</head>
<FRAMESET>
<FRAME src="http://www.apple.com/">;
</FRAMESET>

</html>

You can change the 30 seconds delay according to what you need.
