A storm is brewing in the world of mobile applications, with the current model of OS-specific application platforms challenged by a new generation of webapps and widgets using HTML 5 and Device APIs that can work across a far wider range of devices (and not just phones either).
This makes deploying mobile apps in education far simpler and cheaper than the current model of building one-app-per-device in different programming languages; it also makes it possible to develop applications simultaneously for web applications, mobile and desktop. Rather than make a mobile app for your VLE, you can make your VLE out of mobile apps!
