Responsive Design

What is ‘Hybrid’ ?  What are mobile web applications? • Increasingly popular way to deliver content and business applications to mobile devices • Alternative to developing native mobile apps • Run on any OS, desktop, tablet, smartphone • Easy to develop using standard web technologies and frameworks • Advances in HTML, CSS and JavaScript allow for shifting more functionality to the browser, providing richer user experience and better performance • Easy to maintain and easy roll out of upgrades

Limitations of Hybrid  Browsers do not typically have access to advanced functions of a device, like GPS, camera, address book...  Web apps are often slower than native apps  Mobile web apps require permanent Internet connection  Using offline web application caching and platforms like PhoneGap, Titanium, etc. provides ways to address these limitations
