iPhone Style Checkboxes in jQuery

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

Ever wanted those flash iPhone on/off toggle switches on your webpage? Love jQuery? Well then Thomas Reynolds has got something special for you. iPhone Style Checkboxes implements the iPhone toggles as replacements for standard HTML checkboxes.

Simply run the script and your site will be updated with these specialized controls. Best of all, the underlying checkbox is not touched and backend system will never know the difference. The change is purely visual.

  • These are great, but usability-wise I would only use them if you have an AJAX back-end that automatically saves the state on click. If I see a button like this that says on/off then I expect the status to be so and not have to click a save button as well. Just my opinion…

    That’s a good thing! However, does it exist with the Prototype library?

  • Anyone know where I can find more iPhone interface patterns?
    I love usability of iPhone applications.

  • These look a little weird on the iPhone
