  1. Notice that the website is at apple.com/webapps not apple.com/iphone/webapps . I think iphone may be a trojan horse for webapps on the desktop, which certainly explains why the need for safari on windows. Perhaps the market for Desktop software isnt dead after all. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

  2. Apple, “web apps” don’t count. We want the iPhone as a platform, not a client.

    If coding to a browser is the thing, why isn’t everyone doing it for Explorer? (Fscked-up HTML that only works on Explorer doesn’t count)

  3. I agree with our first poster– web apps are a trojan horse of sorts. Hence the 10GB upgrade to .Mac. It’s more than an overdue appeasement. Given iPod’s and iPhone’s transition to web almost everywhere, I think Apple’s setting the stage for another paradigm shift. Apple wants to own the cloud. This makes sense for Safari on Windows, too.

    I also agree with the other posters. An insightful first post is a tad hard to take somehow. nycnikato, could you please revel in pubescent glory somehow to take the edge off your words? Maybe a rage against some sort of established norm? political vitriol? Anything, really…

    It’s only polite.

    MW “expect,” As in “Expect less from a first post.”

  4. WOW SHOCK AND AWE!

    The new apple web apps is AMAZING OMG! I am soo happy excited! Now I can do exacly what I have been doing from day one! “I-DAY” Ignore us day! WOOT! Thanks apple for making us a web link! WOW!

    Thank for not charging us for it too! lol

  5. Meh. It’ll be news if they ever open up the iPhone to native apps, not crummy web apps that don’t work whenever you are away from WiFi hotspots.

    MDN word: Perform, as in in web apps don’t.
