Easy iPhone Applications

A few days ago I read about PhoneGap, an easy way to make an iPhone application using the web. The basic idea is that the native application runs a Webkit install pointed at a URL. From there you can run your iPhone-optimised web site without a hitch. Sounds wonderful.

I then found another blog telling me how to create a simple Dashcode application that read from an RSS feed. So, I pointed it at this feed and off I go! A really simple application whilst watching the TV. If you want to have a look, point Safari or your iPhone at PhoneGap is a great piece of technology, and is a great stop-gap between learning how to make web sites and iPhone apps.
