App-Only Internet Access Is Frustrating

While surfing this morning on my iPad, I followed a link to the New York Post and was surprised to see the following:

Outside of paywall sites, this is the first time I’ve run across a website that I was not able to view within the browser, and I hope it won’t become the norm. Downloading and maintaining applications for everything is annoying enough without having to imagine having an app for every website.

Perhaps the Post is planning to implement a more comprehensive paywall, but for now it’s available freely in Safari on my laptop, and I’m not interested in subscribing. I won’t be reading the New York Post on my iPad any time soon.
