Daring Fireball: jQuery touch isn’t as good as a native app.

Daring Fireball Linked List: jQTouch

But the demos show just how far short even best-of-breed iPhone web apps fall compared to native apps.

John Gruber writes about jQTouch demos saying they “aren’t great.” It made me wonder what in particular he finds lacking – as those demos look exactly the same as their native counter parts to me. Or – was it that they lacked “features” which would be “not the fault of the framework.”

I think you can do *so* much in safari on the iphone now days… it really hasn’t been explored very thoroughly.
