  Wow, I totally thought you were being sarcastic.  Maybe you were, but it seems to be missed by people here.   For those that don't get the sarcasm, Chrome isn't forcing anything.  In the Chrome settings, you can choose what links do...whether they open in the browser, or open in apps that you may have installed, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Drive, or Google+.  To be clear, in Safari, you don't have this option.  In Safari, a YouTube URL opens a YouTube page in Safari. ...
  I'm guessing here but it may be because the technology still needed a lot of R&D.   If Apple bought the company then it may have been too focused on developing for their own use which may only be a tiny fraction of the larger market for LM.  Apple would be faced with going into another business that's totally outside of its core, or remaining a smaller and more focused company that has exclusive use of the technology in the businesses it has.  Meanwhile additional...
  I totally agree with those definitions and that there are more variations, but I think that's overwhelming for my mom.  For her, and others like her, I'd go with the wikipedia definition and categorization of web app, "mom, tap the Safari icon" and native app, "mom, download this from iTunes". And really from the user's perspective that's all that's needed along with potential notifications when apps need to be online to run.
  I think you're over-complicating things, to the point where definitions have no meaning.   I've used services that create apps that are in the iTunes store which are nothing more than a webkit wrapper, but again, that's a native app because... unlike a web app, you're possibly buying it, it's in iTunes or Cydia, you get app updates as opposed to server updates, and you aren't using Safari to access it.   Now, I've also coded in Xcode, and by no means would I compare...
  I think that was a bit uncalled for.  I agree with zcherries, it's a "shame" (not the end of the world, just "a shame") that there isn't a demo or trial for this.  Personally, I don't know anyone using Logic, although I know a lot who used to.  While I could go to the Apple Store, that's not really a great place to see if the app is really for me or not.  What I'd really like to do is have a trial with enough time to go through a Lynda or other tutorial and see if it...
  Wow, talk about your skeuomorphic porn!
  The distinction really isn't that fuzzy.  Most native apps have some sort of server component.  However, a Web app is something where the code is server based, except for the code delivered as HTML/CSS/Javascript or other web browser capable technologies.   On the iOS, it's simple... can it be run in Safari? If yes, then it's a Web app and not a Native App.  Is it in the iTunes Store, or Cydia?  If yes, then it's a Native App and not a Web App.   That's a pretty...
  It's literally not even in my top 166 reasons why I jailbroke: 0. 7-zip (POSIX) 1. Activator 2. AirBlue Sharing 3. AirBlue Stack 4. AirFloat 5. Airplane SBSettings Toggle 6. AnyAttach 7. AppInfo 8. AppList 9. APR (/usr/lib) 10. APT 0.6 Transitional 11. APT 0.7 (apt-key) 12. APT 0.7 HTTPS Method 13. APT 0.7 Strict 14. APT 0.7 Strict (lib) 15. AptBackup 16. AssistantEnhancer 17. AssistantExtensions 18. atom 19. Autolock SBSettings 20. Barrel 21. basic-cmds 22. Berkeley...
  No I didn't.  I gave a whole host of reasons why the number you gave is heavily flawed.  The two biggest reasons being that you're quoting the numbers from a disreputable site to begin with, and then ignoring the fact that you don't have to jailbreak to download cracked apps from that site.     You have no idea how many people who jailbroke have downloaded any app from that site.     Appcake and IPAstore aren't on Cydia.  No offense, but I think you're talking a lot...
    Wow, way to pull the thread.    The point was made that most people jailbreak to pirate apps and that there weren't the same legitimate reasons to jailbreak anymore.  This was countered with the fact that you don't need to jailbreak to pirate apps on iOS, and made further to the point that Apple TV 2nd Gen commands a higher price on eBay because it's capable of being jailbroken, despite the fact there are absolutely zero apps that can be pirated for it.  While there...
