The mobility sector was mainly dominated by native technologies (Android and iOS applications) until the rise of HTML5. For a web developer to build mobile applications can be challenging with variety of platforms to choose from and technologies to learn. HTML is known to be an easy to learn and fast to implement technology, and has the maximum number of web applications to its credit. However, when HTML5 was released by the World Wide Web consortium, it came along with an added advantage in the mobility domain i.e. cross-platform capability with a single code base. The native technologies demand a higher cost to market, since it consists of SDKs and IDEs, and require a higher learning curve for each device platform. HTML is a well-known technology to most of the in-house developers and the enterprises can start entering the mobility sector right away.
Here is a whitepaper by RapidValue Solutions on this topic. This paper provides a guide for developers and solution architects to understand the different software architecture patterns, HTML5 frameworks available to build mobile apps, pros and cons of these application development frameworks and elements to consider for selecting the right framework, while making a decision to build mobile web apps.
