now actually I believe I have misinterpreted some parts of the blog post...

I thought there would be "only" edit modes. I see no benefit in showing 
something you can't edit.

So even if you show the Page for an Iphone, or Ipad, or even as an 
Native Android App (who get's it Data via json, xml, ...) you should be 
able to see an "Frame estimate" and edit content there.

Or if you want to show how Google will show your Webpage in a Search 
Result... this should be editable as well. No need for the editor to 
know that "intern" it just updates the meta description. All the editor 
wants is to control the text that is show in the Google Search Result.

Here are some examples on how I would see this. And that would be 
AWESOME!!! and technically it should be "easy" as well, as we already 
have multiple "views" for real and wireframe...


In my personal opinion all the "Preview" Button should do is just what 
it is doing now. Remove the "Neos Frame" temporarily to see only the 
desired Mode (be it, frontend, wireframe, iPhone, Google, App Data 
Export, ...)

make sense?
