I'm just wondering, if is possible to support WebGL for mobiles with appmobi or cocoonJS in the future.Joannesalfa2012-08-29 06:36:41

I don't think WebGL is supported on iOS 6. Annoyingly iOS already internally supports WebGL, but has it disabled in the browser. You can't turn it on without getting your app rejected from the app store (they ban using "private APIs").

Mobile browsers tend to be a year or two behind desktop browsers. I anticipate eventually most mobiles will support WebGL. (Apart from Windows 8...)

I guess Android and Blackberry will beat Apple. I don't get why everyone is using iOS devices, it may be worthless and doesn't support to the developers. For Example, Android is very open and can use custom browser, Blackberry provides better support for developers with different tools.

Apple, not so a friend for developers, it won't accept custom browsers until use safari core and a lot of things that you can't do.Joannesalfa2012-08-29 02:32:22

What do you mean? Apple is notorious for being extremely expensive, hostile to developers and a suppressor for innovation. I truly don't get why people use iOS either.

Yeah. There no reason to argue that.

Fanboys can state all they want but in fact Apple is even worse than 90s Microsoft.

A little OT: I work as sysadmin and I never seen an OS bloated and bugged like OsX mountain lion since Windows ME.

@all : I'm under the NDA about the iOS 6 SDK, but I won't break anything by saying it's not supported in the upcoming new iOS version (since it wasn't announced as one of the new features during the WWDC).
If you jailbreak the phone, however, you can activate WebGL for all the WebViews.

And unfortunately those are pretty easily overlooked by consumers, who just want easy to use devices. This is the same company that's exploiting all that labor in China. Builders and developers can get bullied as much as Apple likes, consumers don't care. On the other hand, Android is super awesome for developers! Not quite so much for consumers.
