New MobiUs Browser For iOS Makes Mobile Web Apps Act More Like Native Apps

Mobile development firm appMobi is launching a new HTML5-powered browser for iOS on Monday which will bring additional capabilities typically found only in native apps to the mobile Web. The MobiUs Web App Browser, as it’s being called, works both as a standalone browser alternative or in conjunction with Apple’s mobile Safari, similar to the way browser extensions work on the desktop Web.

“…The browser integrates two full sets of APIs from both appMobi and from PhoneGap (1.0) to give the Web apps a native look-and-feel, plus the ability to access all the hardware features of the smartphone.”

  1. This might be me being stupid, but I can’t find a link to the Jelly Blox HD app that MobiUs proudly brags runs perfectly on it. They mention it on the product page but offer no links, and Googling just turns up the native application. Does anybody have a link?

    The browser itself is functional but not especially sleek. When you close it or switch to another application it loses all your tabs (though it retains your saved information), so clearly it’s meant to be used as an engine and not as its own casual browser.
