Kobo plans new Web app to extend beyong Apple’s influence

Kobo revealed on Tuesday that it planed for a new Web version of its e-reading application designed to give readers access to features through a browser. It will support the ability to buy books from the Kobo Website, which Apple has outlawed in its existing iOS application. While Kobo is positioning its new Web app, based on HTML5 technology to its iOS app as complimentary, the Toronto company’s decision pays more attention to a growing awareness within the developer community of the scope of Apple’s control over the App Store. Kobo said its new Web application is set to launch later this year.
