“Tired of going all the way to MobileSafari on your iPhone to use web apps that were built with the “sweet” iPhone SDK? Provide iPhone Apper with a URL, name, and icon… and iPhone Apper will provide you with an application to install onto your iPhone.”[…] Thanks to koregaonpark for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 594Diggs).

yesman4v: this is my comment
andycr512: When I read the title I saw “iPhone RAPper…”
I really didn’t need that mental image this early on.
vvaduva: I just refuse to run jailbreak on my phone – I can see it coming…version 1.2 coming out bricking all jailbreaked iphones. I can’t get myself to take that risk
dansmeek: oh shit. i thought i broke my iphone! not from this app, but from jailbreak. all in all (w/debugging and such) I may have jailbreaked my phone over 100 times. What’s worse is I had two apps (terminal and lights) that would have proved I voided my warranty Jailbreak failed, and then lost connection with my iPhone. iTunes did not recognize it. I could turn it off and on (sort of, it took 2 minutes for it to turn on, and while graphics were displayed, they were not able to be manipulated). Lots of solutions I tried. I then hoped that connecting the phone to itunes in recovery mode would work. Thank god. The first time I tried it, it did not work – i don’t know why. Second time it did. I found it weird cuz iPhone wan’t even registering with the iTunes. Only iActivator could even telling I was attemping to connect it.
So basically, I think that if you use jailbreak enough times, you’re phone might get fucked. I am going to be more careful and use that program less. The iPhone was very weird….. it was running at about 1/100th of the speed. I’m putting my ringtones on, a few apps, and then just letting it be until apple gives a real update.
I still think Apple would refund the phone if I had managed to break it. It would be bad PR.
krokodil: Vote for this feature, so Apple may add it:
I know, they are reading this site
mobilehavoc: So fucking lame…so I have to hack my iPhone through an elaborate process to allow me to even install this and all I get is the ability to add 3 BOOKMARKS on my homescreen. Because clicking bookmarks in Safari is so fucking difficult.
This has to be THE lamest iPhone tool ever.
pr5owner: what if you add to many icons to fit on the home screen? how do you scroll? flick the screen?
websyndicate: freaking sweet. Thanks for the open platform Steve Jobs
battletops: There is no reason Apple couldn’t have allowed at least this.
Rice: I don’t even have one, but this excites me.
alexkehr: Using this or any other third party app will terminate the warranty, right?
PhrosTT: since when can u install stuff w/out hacking it?
