Difference between apple-mobile-web-app-capable and apple-touch-fullscreen | iPhone / iOS meta tags

I have a question for which I couldn't find answer neither in google or directly at apple developer forum.

What is the exact difference between:

<meta name="apple-touch-fullscreen" content="yes" />


and

<meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes" />


?

Answer

They behave the same way, at least for now. apple-mobile-web-app-capable is the only version mentioned in Safari documentation, so I would stick with it. It looks to me as if apple-touch-fullscreen was used in early demos/previews, so it was left working later when the SDK got actually released, but the preferred version is the one documented.
