    Would like to know the differences between the web based option or native iphone option... because the "native" iphone option is pretty much web based already?

    The main difference is the distribution model - native apps are distributed via App store, and web apps are distributed via URL you provide.
    Though the difference between the capabilities of Web-based and native mobile apps is narrowing rapidly, there are still some features that you cannot implement in your web app (push notification, access to photo camera, address book, gyroscope, microphone, compass, accelerometer, etc).
    Soon, we'll publish a separate blog article describing the topic in details.
    Thanks

    Cool! I mean i think it would be better now that you have a web app service if the native app became more 'native" and had the option of what content you could have stored on your server and what you would like to have included in the app (downloads to users device), that would make the apps faster.

    I think most content would not require constant updates for most apps, i guess news/events type pages would be the most commonly updated,

    J,
    native apps have better user experience plus we are working to allow integration of other modules into our native apps (plug ins).
    web apps are just html based apps targeting media and marketing niches.
    i think both have the right to exist as they are very much different at this point in their target audience..

    Ah cool, yes putting it that way there are differences, although i still think would be cool to have the option to either use "live updates" or "pure native" where the content is stored on the device, i understand the live updates are faster for developers but at the same time downloading to users device would make the apps open much faster, and i think users would benefit, just my own opinion, don't get me wrong you guys doing a great job, just posting my opinion :)
