Web Apps vs Native Apps


Published on

With increasing number of organisations that are presenting app offerings, the app space is indeed getting crowded along with blurring lines of differentiation for the users. How does one make a call for balancing native device capacity with restrictions by platform and what impact does this hold for creativity as well skill sets in the developer community? We intend to provide an insight gained during our journey, comparing and contrasting the vastly underrated area of web app development and the increasingly deeper hooks they are providing to native apps within our goals of engaging those already in the museum and more importantly ;bringing the museum to visitors who are on the outside.
