    I know apple.com has games under their web apps, but I saw this site tonight. It has a lot of the same games that apple has, but I think it is easier to browse through the games on this site on your iPhone.

    I just put it on my iphone homepage :D

    I think pretty much all the Web App games for the iPhone are pretty crap.

    Can't wait for cheap/free developers create some good games when the SDK comes out :)

    Pluse, with EDGE being so slow, it is too painful to use these webapps.

    Actually, Jirbo.com has more than this site (and the presentation is 1000x) better

    In "actuality", no one likes the web apps.

    There is nothing to like about them. They are apps that are painfully slow, due to a painfully slow internet connection.

    Essentially, they are apps that don't work that well. No one is loving that, I promise you.

    I've played several games, and the only one worth my time is bejeweled. All the other ones I've tried sucked.

    I think we'll see some simple games very quickly after the SDK is released. Can't be that hard to take any one of the buhzillion sudoku, poker, blackjack, bejewelled etc. etc. web games, and turn it into a native app.

    Plus, we'll be able to use them all the time, even when in airplane mode.

    Hopefully with the SDK we'll get better games than those web app games. ;)


    They are alright, but there is room for improvement


    edit:

    An example of better would be this...

    All webapp games are silent, right?

    I'm not the only one without sound on these am I? the silent part makes the web app games much less fun...

    Most webapps are silent. I agree though.

    Playing games on a jailbroken iPhone doesn't even compare to these silly webapp games.

    I just wish Jirbo was designed a bit better ...the site itself feels very unpolished.

    I recently discovered dbelement.com
    I must say MindDojo is Amazing, I keep forgetting that it's a webapp.

    Keep it up dbelement!
