First created in September 2008 as a simple project, iWebKit quickly grew and became vastly popular. Christopher Plieger began this project just to play around with his new iPod and web writing skills, eventually he discovered people where interested in further development and he responded to those suggestions by updating his framework. iWebKit was first famous in the underground jailbreak scene where it was used as a template for description pages in Cydia. After that quick success a computer website was created to make the project more accessible to people randomly seeking for webapp development help. Quickly people became interested and due to a vast buzz that spread on the web Christopher got contacted by the owners of “touchpodium” who offered him solid hosting for his site. After a while Christopher wanted more independence and that is where Johan came into play. After a couple very friendly mail exchanges where we discussed about iWebKit’s future Johan offered him to host the site on his server and to redesign it completely which Christopher gladly accepted. Today iWebKit has beenvisited by hundrends of countries in the world and has been downloaded at least 150000 times since it’s release. And there is still more to come!
