    I didn't have a chance to say this when I mentioned UIWebView in my talk last night, but I don't think that the use of them is entirely bad. I actually think app that Kostas and Shanay (sp?) demoed is a great example of appropriate use of WebViews -- which I meant to mention during my talk.

      Webviews are fine for that purpose and probably was intended to be used that way originally. I've personally seen kitties died in the name of "business value" and bad design implementation. Webviews done right can do a fair amount that natives would have trouble with (particularly in content layout and font control). Problem is...its rarely done right...and is a tangled nightmare to debug...and doesn't work with hardware very well...and is usually used as some quick fix solution...and slow as $#%@...and a kitty just died...and is a horrible way to scar your children for life...and it punches grandmothers along the way. So you know, if you're ok with that, webviews all the way.
