iPhone Native Apps — The Great Leap Backwards?

John Allsop arguing that most of the native iPhone apps he’s looked at would be better off as web apps. He has a good point but overstates his case.

He mentions Cocktails as an example that could have been an iPhone web app a year ago with “a little bit of CSS”, and links to PocketBar, an iPhone web app that serves the same purpose. But Cocktails is far slicker and far faster than PocketBar. That may not be worth $10 to most people, but it’s worth $10 to me.
