Apple unveils WebApps directory for iPhone users

WebAppsWhile the rest of the world is still scratching their heads trying to figure out why Apple doesn't officially support third party applications on the iPhone, Steve Jobs and company wants to highlight just how many applications you can run -- by visiting web sites optimized for the iPhone.

We're not saying a Web apps directory is a bad idea. In fact, it's nice to have a single place to go for a list of online services that look good on a small touch-sensitive screen. But we'd be more impressed if you could calculate tips, convert measurements, or play Soduku without firing up Safari.

And honestly, we'd have thought Apple would have put together this list as soon as the iPhone was launched and kept it up to date. As it is, dozens of 3rd party websites and blogs have started keeping track of all the applications out there.
