Report: Apple soon to launch official iPhone Web apps directory

“Apple as early as Wednesday is expected to launch as part of its website a directory of official Web 2.0-based iPhone applications,” AppleInsider reports.

“One developer familiar with the matter, who asked to remain anonymous, said Apple representatives have been tracking down authors of Web-based iPhone apps and asking them to submit official screenshots, icons, web addresses and descriptions of their applications to the company,” AppleInsider reports.

“The submission processes is said to be very similar to that required of developers who submit their Dashboard widgets to Apple’s official Dashboard downloads directory. In an effort to keep the initiative hush-hush, Apple has also reportedly ‘sworn’ these developers ‘to secrecy,'” AppleInsider reports.

  1. Patience o’ ye of little girlfriendage. Stop hacking your macs and whacking your packs and have a little patience.

    It’s like that tree in the forest…
    If 10 geeks complain about an iPhone on a podcast–who hears it?

    I’ll tell you who..the media and other geeks. The rest of us are loving our iPhones and have FAITH that Apple won’t let us down.
    And if they do–then there’s that whole girlfriend thing to distract me.

    You’re right! 90% of the iPhone users aren’t geeks…
    For them, it’s just a cool phone.
    Now just imagine the sea of “intentionally bad applications” to destroy the iPhone experience.
    Apple won’t allow, forget it!
    There are people who are against Apple on this, but love web apps… Google for example.
    I simple don’t understand.

  3. web 2.0 ? I have yet to see anything truely compelling out of web 2.0. AT&T;is fine for checking email and maps but i don’t think i will be using any apps that need to stay connected via their data line.

    at least give me a few games so i have something to do on the subway while i listen to music. As for using it on wi-fi, wifi is just to few and far between.
