PhoneGap - an application container for building webapps for the iPhone that can access features of the native Cocoa APIs
Looks fantastic, but I worry that it violates Apple's "no virtual machines" policy.
Flash and Java are both banned on the iPhone because they would allow a backdoor through which developers could bypass the App Store and deliver applications without Apple's consent.
Definitely worth a look, but be wary of investing a lot of effort into a PhoneGap app for the time being.Permalink
