@kidder I get that. But the iPad is not REALLY a mobile device. Really it's just a more portable laptop without a keyboard.
The reason you need apps optimized for a mobile device is because the screen is too small, and often the download speeds are too slow.
Neither of these things is really much a problem with iPad... so why would you want to use apps over just using the full website which 1) always looks better 2) had more features and 3) is already there without having to install anything?
