Ipad App Developers, Take Your App To Ipad-www.277.cc

Mobil-.puting But increasingly, the web is being accessed more by mobile devices than by desktop and laptop .puters. Here on the mobile device, the usage paradigm is different: the user is likely multitasking between the real and online world, is probably highly interruptible, they might be walking or riding in a cab, and may only have a finger available for interacting with applications and content. This usage context has driven the popularity of mobile apps – small programs that are often focused on a narrow set of tasks, and are designed specifically for the needs of mobile users. The pace of progress in HTML5 Development picks up with every passing month. The web holds the promise of being the ubiquitous, open technology platform that enables vast pools of developer talent to serve the needs of practically the entire online world. And the de facto, evolving HTML5 standard could turn out to be as good a unifying technology stack as the best efforts so far. A typical well designed mobile app will reduce user controls down to the essentials. The full .plement of user controls – menus, a history button, toolbars, etc. – that you get with a browser are likely overkill for focused mobile tasks. A user may also well feel more engaged with an app that looks more purpose built for the device it’s running on, vs. a web app running in a browser. Modern Webkit-based mobile browsers do a noble job of rendering HTML5, but users may get a sense of foreboding interacting with such web apps, due to variability of user experience quality. The user experience of running a web app in a mobile browser circa 2012 is that one can’t be confident the app has been tested well or even at all on various mobile browsers. So what is the web application developer to do, to make the transition to being, say, an iPad app developer ? One possible path is offered by cross platform HTML5 tools, such as PhoneGap. These tools allow the HTML5 developer to code their apps in the web technology stack they are familiar with, access mobile device API’s via the programming language they are familiar with (JavaScript), and wrap the entire thing as a native application that can be deployed to app stores and installed on mobile devices as a first class app alongside other apps coded in native technology stacks. So, web developers no longer need to let mobile app specialists have all the fun in the mobile space – all they have to do is make the easy transition to being phonegap developers, and promise of the web, including the mobile web, is and remains available to them.
