HTML 5 and the Mobile Web - Do you really need an app?

A session at DDD! Sydney 2012

Saturday 30th June, 2012

3:50pm to 4:50pm (EST)

Smartphones are capable of amazing things and as you're no doubt sick of hearing, no matter what you need, "there's an app for that". But do you really need an app? Developers can feel constant pressure to build a killer app to compliment your website or service, but it's worth taking a step back and asking whether you need a set of native apps for all those smartphone flavours. Smartphone browsers are very powerful too, and it's amazing what you can do with a webpage, especially when combined with new HTML 5 capabilities. In this talk, we'll look at offline sites, local storage, geolocation, integration with native functions, and even more HTML 5 capabilities for mobile devices that can give your website the power of a native app.
