Yup, you see it right: the desktop store comes through inside of the iPhone app.
If you embed a web page, do make sure it’s mobile friendly.
Hope it’s an error.
A link on Twitter today to an app called FiftyThree lead me to their demo video.
Does anyone use the iPad on the go like this? Is the iPad truly passing onto the realm of Moleskine notebooks where you carry the thing around in your hand (it’s just too heavy for me)? If I was creating a commercial for Samsung’s new Galaxy Note – which actually comes with its own über stylus – I’d look at this.
Otherwise, very neat app indeed…
Say what you will, this is pretty cool – at least at the idea level: a specialized, HTML5 web browser for mobile devices that provides special hooks for HTML5 apps granting them access to native device features. Pretty nifty, right? Naturally the people who control the platform, kinda get to decide what can and cannot run, maybe get a cut of the action for the business that they are generating for you and for the work that they invested in making and marketing the app.
In exchange for openness, you get cool features (especially for games) and capabilities you otherwise will not be able to provide. Tradeoffs tradeoffs. Still, pretty darn cool.
