    this needs to come to Safari and other apps like Mail and more.

    This is ok only if apple is still governing or facilitating all these installs. My concern would be if these aren’t coming from apple’s AppStore then we are opening up a Pandora’s box full of malware just like the android platform has. Especially if its left up to Facebook. They don’t exactly have a stellar record when it comes to privacy issues.

    How can developers that are not Facebook implement this?

    @BrentB: Installs on iOS devices must come from the App Store (unless you’re in development), so there are no worries there unless Apple plans on opening it up. Don’t count on that.
