Mobile Web Apps

The distinction between mobile Web applications and native applications is anticipated to become increasingly blurred, as mobile browsers gain direct access to the hardware of mobile devices (including sensors, accelerometers and GPS chips). Thanks to feature rich smartphones and touch tablets the mobile Web has many advantages over the desktop Web we were used to.

Responsive Web

Responsive Web design is much more than about throwing a bunch of media queries on the page, choosing the right breakpoints and doubling the size of images for those cool new high-density phones.
Creating content adapted to different devices is a new art. Small devices need targeted imagary solutions and adapted copy for effective communication. Mobile devices and Smart TV browsers have unique controls for navigation, picking dates, form input etc.

The mobile first approach is popular but of course each device advantages should be targeted. With CSS level 4 you can even adapt the website’s contrast according to the ambient luminosity in which the device is used.

CSS3 layout solutions, viewport-relative units, adaptive typograhy will further take advantage of each device’s features.

HTML5 Apps

Amazon is now accepting HTML5 Web apps making it easy for you to reach millions of Kindle Fire and Android customers worldwide. Monetize using Amazon’s In-App Purchasing API for JavaScript. But HTML5 Apps are also successfully replacing traditional desktop applications. Microsoft wants developers to code in the language of the Web, just like Google. And Windows 8 might prove that HTML5 Web Apps are the future of computing.
