The iOS convention is to put close / back buttons on the upper left, primarily since most apps have new screens enter from the right. I guess that trumped the precedent set on the web.

I see what you are saying, but the cards as presented don't really reference the iOS UI. Maybe I'm just too used to the web app.

I'd argue they still do, it's just a modal view with a different animation, thus it makes sense to follow those conventions.

Also in the web app I tend to just click on the background to close a card.
