Do animated GIF's play on the iPod or iPhone in mobile Safari by default? I know Flash won't & want to make a decision on best way to put a simple animation into a web site. If not any suggestions on what format best to make animations?

    Can't you make these decisions on your own?


    Why not do it?


    Here, animated gif, made in the last century :

    Glad you received your answer.  Why some people on this forum don't seem to have the patience to answer simple questions is beyond me.  If you don't have the patience to give an answer without a snide remark....maybe you should just simply refrain form answering.  I have never been to a forum with so many people acting like arses or so hostile.  Because of the new IPad 1 in 4 purchasers are new to Apple.  Chill out people.

    Yeah, I agree. In fact, it's refreshing to get an inquiry that doesn't consist of "when will the iPad get flash?"


    Glad the OP got an answer to his question.
