That’s right. Now anyone can code a web-app for the iPhone. The new iPhone SDK includes a new version of Dashcode that makes it easy develop web-apps for the iPhone.
The interface includes preset styles that we’ve all come to associate with the iPhone. You can start off with the default browsing screen template (you know, the menu style that slides to reveal the next menu-level) or code your own. iPhone development noobs will be happy to hear that they can take the “slider template” and add-on forward/back buttons, gauges, indicators, form elements, and more – with little knowledge for code.
With the new Dashcode, I think there are going to be an overabundance of iPhone web-apps hitting the web. Most will suck, but the thing about a massive developer-nurturing environment is that we will inevitably see some amateur come up with a really useful web-app. Bring it on!
Oh, and go download the iPhone SDK if you want to dabble in web-app development.
