Trends you're seeing?
So I mean from my perspective,
HTML5, I think it's a great
technology and very powerful.
I think when we're talking about HTML5
versus native apps,
I think HTML5 does more than just native.
It basically can power your mobile website.
So if you want to build anything that is powered
on a mobile website with a quick URL
or bookmarked into an app link
on your Smartphone, SW can do that
and you can actually do some great, fantastic things
and for the most part on every platform
it's actually even hardware accelerated.
When it comes to putting HTML5 inside of your native app,
I think that's where the question marks start beginning.
It really depends on how complicated
your user experience is.
It depends on animations, transitions,
what kind of content you have
so for things like games and whatnot,
it's really challenging to do it inside of HTML5
wrapped inside of an app.
It really comes down to experimenting on what it is
what your user experiences and what your designs are
and how you're implementing it
to see if HTML5 may or may not be a roadblock.
On some of the platforms, the HTML5 inside of
a native environment is not hardware accelerated
so you will see slowdowns in performance.
When it's simple layout or a content display,
it's relatively straightforward.
But when you have anymore anything else that
is slightly more complicated design pattern
or experience, especially when it comes down to games
it becomes much, much more challenging.
And again it depends on the sensitivity on your users.
Some users may not be able to tell if you're deploying
an enterprise app.
They don't really care that much.
But it's when something is,
let's say it's a luxury app for people
that really care about the entire experience end to end,
that it really matters.
And then there's something right in the middle
called hybrid where you take the best of both worlds
and you figure out how to really leverage HTML5
inside of native code.
