Came across this one while building a fairly complex and colorful HTML email yesterday. I rarely use tabular layouts (almost exclusively in eBlasts) and while testing it, I noticed it wasn’t Outlook that was giving me trouble, but rather iOS’s mail. Little hairline borders were showing up. Pinching and zooming in and out made them appear and dissapear.
Turns out this is a known issue — one which Apple has yet to address, and it looks like it’s existed dating back to iOS 5, and maybe earlier.
iPhone Fail: The trouble with Table Borders and HTML Email
I remember when the first iPhone came out (pre App store obviously) and the lack of real documentation. Sounds like it still hasn’t moved forward much, in terms of documentation and sounds like iOS 7’s Safari still needs some work.

Nice tutorial over on CSS-Tricks.com on replicating iOS7’s frosted glass-type effect.
I’m of the opinion it’s already over used, but I’m sure clients and designers will be requesting it. So it makes sense to have some exposure of how to reproduce it.

Came across this the other day, and seemed interesting — at least for the prototyping/mocking up of iOS-bound applications.
