100 Days of Something: 90

A few days ago I mentioned Kyle Stetzscribble.audio and Typedrummer. The BBC has also been busy at building nice things with the Web Audio API. The Wobbulator is a recreation of a device from the Radiophonic Workshop that includes a behind the scenes look at the code used to make it.

While Kyle’s web apps work as nicely on my iPhone/iPad as they do on my Mac, the Wobbulator unfortunately doesn’t work at all on those ‘mobile’ devices, which is a pity since it would be well suited to touch screen controls. And if JavaScript is turned off none of them work at all.

I’m wondering how these kinds of web apps could be approached following the principles of progressive enhancement.
