Kobo to develop app independent of Apple?
Caught this article over at MediaBistro about Kobo developing a new iOS app that would be more adaptable to different platforms and potentially free it from Apple's (evil?) clutches.
Kobo to Release HTML5 App
What do folks make of this?

Interesting... The other thing I wonder about is from a Blog post by the IOS Software Chief Architect at Kobo. His blog is at http://quatermain.tumblr.com/ but read back to http://quatermain.tumblr.com/day/2011/07/11 where he mentions moving to work for Apple. I wonder if moving to a more HTML 5 based solution means less IOS integration?
(Just musing through the top of my head)

Per his twitter feed, he ended up not taking the job with Apple.
