    HTML5 could make the Web the new iPad app store - Jun. 28, 2011

    I thought this was an interesting article. The big ones is Amazon at the bottom of the article saying they are developing a full Kindle looking app for the web.

    In the first year of existence, the iPhone only supported third party web apps made with HTML, javascript, css (the key elements of HTML 5). Nobody cared, and developers demanded a native SDK. The rest is history.

    I am 100% in favor of web apps in cases where some aspect of the app is heavily based on internet content. I just don't think they are robust enough to compete with native apps in all those other cases where the internet aspect is not key.

    they mention that at the end of the article "that somethings will still need to be native to take advantage of the hardware."

    But things that don't need the hardware why bother writing 5 different apps.

    They're not writing five different apps.

    And its good to see HTML5 showing its robustness, since most comparisons to Flash have been focused only on video and ads...

    Appears that the RIM designers/engineers are very good and that the co CEOs know something about what they've been talking about.

    I'm assuming that the web apps can be downloaded and stored locally?

    Not everyone with a PlayBook, iPad, etc.. will have access to the internet 100% of the time they need to use an app.

    And I don't see how the ESPN and Financial Times "Web apps" are any different from visiting a "Web site".

    Am I wrong to believe this to be a bit of breathing room on the app front.

    The itrolls have html5 also but it may blow the you need an app to do everything away.

    Flash will still be there and it doesn't require apps either.

    True and I still think before flash goes away the playbook and ipad will be junk by then.

    anyone else remember the three minute app video at bb world. they did say you could have it update itself after a tweak.

    I doubt it. QNX. You must read the learn QNX thread. The PB hardware is also quite robust. A huge difference between BB stuff and all the rest is its robustness.

    Oh I forgot about that shootsscores, I guess I should've said they will be old and there will be playbook 3 or 4 and ipad 4 or 5. But if QNX or RIMs version can keep up for that long the hardware will be outdated perhaps?

    Multi core processors will progress but I'd venture to say that battery power will be the limiting factor there. Even if efficient quad cores are developed, QNX will still be able to run processes on the dual if the processes are not too consumptive of resources which brings us back to batteries again.

    no they will need to update hardware that's just the nature of the beast
