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.


"... the company has a vested interest in its App Store, where it takes a 30 per cent cut of all applications sold, and pure web applications are ultimately a threat to the store, particularly when they're loaded to the iOS home screen as if they were local apps."
