Anyway, I think we will soon see that Apple simply "calls" their Apple Pay
"App" from the web because it preserves all the goodies "as is".
Why is simple and practical wrong?
Is anyone saying that's wrong? What's wrong is the comparison between
"native" and "web".
Well, I have provided a concrete solution for combining native (running trusted
and web (running untrusted code) which I originally got from Google and is
in practical use.
If somebody has a better solution there's huge community out there who is
Apple Pay could not have been created through the
App Store model either. It's a feature of iOS coupled with the
hardware found in the latest iPhone.
If we get browsers that operate at the OS level they could deliver
similar features. If they don't operate at the OS level they could
integrate with what the OS provides. Either way this is something that
requires new APIs and UX, whether "native" or "web".
