Web App on iPhone - problem that links open in new Safari window.
I have a web app that I'm writing for the iPhone which searches a DVD database and displays results. Each result has a link to the movie's IMDb (Internet Movie Database) page. The web app is designed to be added to -and launched from- the iPhone's Home Screen which means the Safari back and forward buttons are not displayed. This has resulted in an unforeseen problem - if the user activates the IMDb link they will go the the IMDb page but then there is no way to go back to the web app's results page they just left.
Strangely this only happens with some links on IMDb and not all (these are just normal page links not video trailer ones). Also if I open the web app's URL in Safari, do a search, and activate an IMDb link, there is no problem with links opening in a new window/tab, that does not happen ever.
Is there any way to stop the links opening Safari?
