Does anyone know wheter it is possible to develop an iphone app that has a browsers built in?
The purpose is to develop an app and when you click a link the screen flips and the browser appears.

When you are done, you can flip back and look at the links again.

Does anyone know if this is possible and if yes, how this should be done?

Yes I believe this is possible, Apps often open Safari to register, etc. And I believe I have seen Safari open Apps as well. Sorry I do not have any examples, and most likely no one will post any. There are not many iPhone developers here.

It is possible, but I don't know how to do it.  I just want to warn you that because any app with an embedded mobile browser, can in theory access any web content, apps with embedded browsers are automatically rated 17+ in the App Store.  Just something to keep in mind, as it can hurt sales depending on the target audience.
