Preview on lan/ipad2 issues

  • forgot to mention: iPad 2, iOS 6 and a 4gS iOS 6

  • Arima : since iOS5, webapp are indeed accelerated too by the Nitro Javascript JIT engine. It must be a bug lying somewhere, but not a conspiracy <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    (Believe me, they could, Apple would be the first to completely ditch the AppStore and let people handle themselves the app distribution, using HTML5, it would cost them way less <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />).

  • Pode - yeah, I don't believe it's a conspiracy either. I was just mentioning that apparently a good number of other developers think so.

    Even though web apps have nitro, could it still be possible that the extra security still hampers it though?

    I don't believe that apple would ditch the app store if they could. They had an opportunity to do that when "unofficial" software first started getting written for iOS devices - their response was the App Store. It might not be a money maker for them, but apple does like having control over the user experience, though a lot of crap manages to get on the app store anyways.

  • Arima : about the extra security checks, we can't know, it relies on informations provided by Apple. It's possible that they are going to give a new release (iOS6.1.1 or something like that) to patch the bugs of the 6.0.

    About the AppStore, yes, they aren't making money on it, but they need to provide an "experience" to sell their hardware (since, after all, Apple is an hardware company), so yes, they won't release their grip on the AppStore.

    But it's not because of the AppStore existence that HTML5 is lagging behind on their platform. It's because of the security department being behind every move of the other department, saying 'no' first about every new feature, and after that looking about what can be done to let a bit of that feature slip in the new iOS release <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />.
