Developer Recreates Toy Story iAd for iPhone

Remember when Steve showed off iAd for the first time? The cool Toy Story 3 iAd demo with the rotating menu and movie characters? We do, and s0 does developer Ted Littledale, who wanted to see if it’s actually so easy to create an iAd.

Well, probably not, because as he wrote in his blog post he had to go through some documentation from the Webkit team and play around with functions and finger swipe events to get the thing working. Also, he used pictures of his dog in the “ad”, which you can test on the iPhone here.

We’ve embedded the demo video after the break. Cool stuff.
