    Default An Idea: Running Apps from the Phone
    So, now that we have Apache running from the iPhone, and our apps run from the iPhone, can we bookmark local files from Safari, and thus hae our web apps be still running as web apps, but locally?

    Any devs wanna work on that? Or work with me?

    I think its very possible.

    Thats sort of the same idea, but a different method. I think locally could work, but right now it would be super hackery, and if developers updated their app you wouldn't know... Still, I think I'll try.

    you know, if you could incorporate some sort of sync action when you dock, that would then download the page on to your iphone that are bookmarked somewhere. you may have something. point your browser to 127.0.0.1 or something viola somewhat instant 3rd party app. via safari of course.
