I have a question about Use Cases for Installable WebApps located at https://w3c-webmob.github.io/installable-webapps/.
Under section "Add to Homescreen", the document states: ... giving developers the choice to tightly integrate their web applications into the OS directly from the Web browser is still somewhat new... ... [Installable WebApps] are different in that the applications are "installed" directly from the browser itself rather than from an app store... It sounds like to me the idea is to allow any site on the internet to become a app store. My observations are the various app stores provide vendor lock-in and ensure a revenue stream. Its architected into the platform. Companies like Apple, Microsoft and RIM likely *won't* give up lock-in or the revenue stream (at least not without a fight). Are there any platforms providing the feature? Has the feature gained any traction among the platform vendors? Thanks in advance.
