It’s Not a Web App

I’ve been using (and liking) forecast.io on my computer for a few weeks, but I didn’t realize it was a fully functional mobile web app as well.

I’d go as far as to say the best weather App in the world right now is a web app. I may be biased, of course, but the fact that Forecast is even a contender is kind of a big deal. It raises the question: why aren’t there more high quality mobile web apps that have the look, feel, and performance of their native counterparts?

Between the forecast.io service itself and this recent blog post they’re making a pretty good argument for a lot more innovation in the mobile web app space.
