    time Well with numbers like these for the Apple App Store there is a huge disruption of that mantra and the scale of previous device apps 250 000 available 6 500 000 000 downloads as of Oct 20 2010 Google is behind but expect it to rise hugely in the future given the runaway success of Android What happened In a word iPhone Not the first smartphone but it s touch interface was revolutionary However few people remember that the original plan was not to have an iPhone SDK in 2007 and the proposed way of marketing applications was this In a rarity Steve Jobs actually backtracked and announced a native SDK for third party apps So then why are we consuming so many apps on our devices now Let s examine a few points Tight integration in the hardware is allowing use of those nice 3D graphics sensors gyros compass and GPS something webapps are barely getting off the ground now Portability of the device is always a plus ie Nintendo portables always outsell home consoles It also demands that the app respond faster and be launchable easier Visual appeal Buttons images tabs they all look nice and respond quickly Development of rich interfaces is easier For all I love the Web dealing with browser incompatibilities and CSS rendering issues is not fun All that is good and true but don t desktop apps on the Mac Linux and Windows also access the hardware fully Don t some of them have nice UIs What s the catalyst for all this interest The answer in my opinion is convenience KISS Yep what users of apt get have known for years relatively easy installation of native applications via the Internet is very desirable I think all of us might ve moved to webapps for email news etc because the administration and acquiring of desktop apps was just inconvenient another good point would be feature creep but that s another post altogether Consider Windows and buying downloading software later installing configuring it ain t pretty It s more convenient just to access a webpage no dealing with configs or anything at the cost of reduced expectations If Microsoft and the rest of the packaged software industry had embraced Internet distribution we might be somewhere else now but they did not and thus a lot of PC software moved to the Web So now you go click on a store and you app download and install Once you see it in action you shouldn t be surprised people like it even when ceding control and maybe even freedom Hopefully one day a desktop OS could have such an option The Web is dead Long live the Web So is the Web dead Not by a long shot as some would point out and likely to remain very profitable given Google s latest earnings The Web remains a vital information resource both of text and now of richer context like video and that s
