True, I'm sickened by this, and I am surprised with Apple.
This news is a big step back for cross platform development.
Apple know they have a massive share of the mobile apps market at the moment, and this new plan is try and trap developers into it, discouraging them from cross platform development. There is no other reason for it. Any person with common sense, should know that.
Just because an app is written using a certain API, doesn't make it a good one. Cross platform apps can be better, it all depends on how they are written.
They should be blocking bad quality apps NOT cross platform apps!
This is simply anti-competitive tactics for vendor lock-in, disguised in bullshit excuses like multitasking and app quality concerns.
Today, I bought a new Sony Vaio and plan to sell my MacBook Pro.
My next phone will be an Android phone, not an iPhone. And I will not be getting the iPad.
Game Over Apple.
