HTML 5, CSS3 and JavaScript-based Apps Showcased in New iPhone App Store

By HTMLGoodies Staff

Many developers have created web apps for the iPhone which look and act like typical native applications. Until now, there was no app store that focused on apps made using HTML, JavaScript and CSS, but today the OpenAppMkt was announced, and iPhone web apps have a storefront of their own.

OpenAppMkt features a clean interface for searching apps, and users can also browse apps by category. iPhone users who want to "install" the app can just create a shortcut/bookmark to the OpenAppMkt website on their home screen. When an app is selected from the store, users install it the same way, and icons appear on the iPhone home page just like native apps.

With time, OpenAppMkt hopes to offer thousands of apps in every category.
