  • Great Presentation! Completely agree with the Hybrid approach. Not for everything - but the solution for many apps. We have developed another free piece of the puzzle.
    At iphonepreviewer.com you can preview what your hybrid app will look like - even share it with customers - while you are designing it. You can even show and test functionality. Yes, it is possible to create portable web apps within small budgets!

  • Native vs Web vs Hybrid Mobile Development Choices Jason Grigsby • Web Visions 2009 @grigs on Twitter • jason@cloudfour.com cloudfour.com • userfirstweb.com mobileportand.com
  • Early 2008
  • “It’s about usage. Not units” • Number of queries on Google search from iPhones surpassed those from Symbian-based phones in the days after Christmas. Nokia’s Symbian-based phones are 40% of the market worldwide. • German iPhone users consume 30 times more data. • 95% of iPhone customers regularly surf the Internet. Data services revenue increased from $2.7 billion in 2005 to $6.9 billion in 2007. • Google sees 50 times the number of searches using the iPhone than any other mobile device. They were so surprised, they asked their engineers to check the logs to make sure it was correct. • This is why major companies, Google, Quicken, etc. are all launching iPhone-optimized services despite the iPhone’s 1% market share.

  • “It all depends on the application, of course,” says Mauro Montanaro, [Fox Mobile CEO] “and whether they are paid or free.” But he also notes that the “discoverability” of iPhone apps is becoming a bigger problem, and that some of the marketing tactics that Fox Mobile has used successfully on other handsets just don’t work on the iPhone. “The question, as usual, is placement. Who determines [editorial placement]? Maybe someone out of Cupertino.”
