Walmart Laughs Off Apple’s App Rules With iPad-Optimized Vudu Site

Posted Aug 11, 2011

Walmart’s Vudu video streaming service is the next in what may be a long line of services that opt for iPad-optimized sites instead of iPad apps. Walmart’s Vudu site launch follows in the steps of Amazon’s Kindle Cloud Reader. The web-based apps (and others by Financial Times and Kobo) use HTML5 to avoid breaking Apple’s restrictions for in-app subscriptions. [Mashable]
