Apple handcuffs 'open' web apps on iPhone home screen [theregister.co.uk]

"Apple is basically using subtle defects to make web apps appear to be low quality even when they claim HTML5 is a fully supported platform," says one mobile web app developer, who asked that his name not be used.

Apple did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
