For mobile applications, native development has been the traditional choice for apps that require performance or rich graphics. But with the advent of HTML5 and new JavaScript application frameworks, web apps now have access to features and capabilities previously unavailable within the browser, such as offline storage and sensors data. This presentation will examine the pros and cons of mobile native and web app development, and the likely route to their convergence.
