The browser on the iPhone is capable of using advanced web technologies introduced in HTML5. One of these is the app cache that allows web pages to run on the client, from the cache, without a connection to the internet. Together with Local Storage you can also save data permanently "in" the page.
Or am I just dreaming?
UIWebView scrollBy replacement
Hide the tab bar when displaying the ABPeoplePickerNavigationController?
Draw a shadow behind UIWebView
You can take advantage of Apple's support for the HTML5 app cache by creating a manifest file indicating which resources are to be cached, and specifying that file from within the HTML page of your web app.
iPhone subview design (UIView vs UIViewController)
Details on how to do this are in Apple's documentation..
Inability to delete table cells after a certain point
Update: I have tried this on my own web app, and it works.
Is there an Cocoa or Objective C api for Java?
You have to make sure that the manifest file is served as type text/cache-manifest, like it says in the documentation.
Protocols with optional properties?
Also, I don't know how long Safari is guaranteed to keep the files cached.
How to determine where this memory leak is coming from?
I have found that manually clearing Safari's cache will clear the cached web app files as well, even for a web app link saved on the device's home screen..

body div id="home" title="home" selected="true" div id="link1" title="New Page"
I am a noob when it comes to all this but if we making these to work and look like native app then I feel this kinda things should be stream lined, I not sure how we could do this but I am sure we could make a simple mainframe framwork that never needs to be opened or edited for the end user they just include the meta and css tags and off they go if your intested in helping me do something like this please email webmaster (at) mokodev (Dot) info I want to make this framework free but also based on the already known IUI and IWeb frameworks, the mainframe would work on any OS as it be just flat css and js files but if we can get it to work i can also try make a windows IU template builder this would enable people get started.
