Native iPhone apps that you can access from the App Store have without doubt revolutionized the smartphone segment. However, though there are close to 250,000 iPhone apps on the App Store today,a lot of apps do not make it to the store because Apple’s fickle app review policies. No doubt then that a significant number of such app developers either move underground to the Cydia store or make alternate web apps for legitimate access from the iPhone.
OpenAppMkt is one such app store that exclusively showcases web apps. The store launched late last week and presently contains a good number of applications that can be accessed via the Mobile Safari web browser on the iPhone. Installing the OpenAppMkt store to your iPhone is not exactly hard – just open the website OpenAppMkt.com on your iPhone and bookmark it to your Home Screen. All web apps opened from here will open in full screen mode thus making it similar to a native app user experience.
There are not too many apps available at present. But with apps including Google Voice present on OpenAppMkt, expect a good number of users to rush in here pretty soon.
