You can access basically all the functionality you need from the browser, instead of running an app to do the job. No need for an app to check weather, twitter, public transit, listen to the radio or any other service - you can just have a bookmark for all the stuff you need in your browser.
Of course you can say that web is not optimized for touch. Yes. For now.
