So in Apple’s continous conquest to ‘own its customer’s iPhone’s’ and not allow any downloaded apps to the device, they launched their iPhone Web Apps website yesterday. It’s viewable on any computer, but to utilize the site you’ll need to navigate to www.apple.com/webapps on your iPhone. From there you can select from a number of web applications (insert hisses and bosses here) that are compatible with the iPhone. Some notable Webapps are Facebook, Bejeweled (fun), and an application called “Roami” that allows you to control your iTunes from the iPhone (note to self: gotta try that). I’m frustrated because this doesn’t address the limited bandwidth issue of the Edge network. You’d think Apple would be all over Widgets and build ones that can better utilize the network’s dial-up like speeds.
