Yes, but not effectively. You can only interact with the WebKit JavaScript system by passing strings into your hidden UIWebView component. And the JS could only "call out" to the host environment by requesting custom URLs that the host environment could recognize (e.g. custom://show-alert/?message=foo+bar). As a consequence, if you want to do anything requiring back and forth between the two environments, you have to do it asynchronously. It's a real pain.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?

Working...
