HTML5 is the current web standard that allows web applications to run on a mobile or tablet device with or without an Internet connection.
Advancements in web standards now mean mobile applications that were once created only in iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry can now be created to be platform independent using HTML5. This opens up huge possibilities for cost-effective app creation and deployment over multiple mobile operating systems.
Only a few years ago, if you needed an application to allow a mobile workforce to capture data out in the field and communicate back with the office, the only choice you had was to develop the solution using Windows CE, PALM or BlackBerry.
Since 2008 there has been an explosion in the number of technologies and hardware platforms capable of allowing mobile workforce solutions to be developed in a more manageable way, some of the providers have been and gone but the main providers now are iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8.
With the advent of so many providers and mobile platforms, it is really difficult to know which platform to design and develop the solution for. The main difficulty lies in the fact that the solutions are not transferable so if the solution needs to be used on iOS and Android smartphones or tablets the solution will need to be developed twice at twice the development costs.
HTML5 mobile development is platform independent, which means the solution only needs to be developed once and will work across many smartphone devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android Devices including Galaxy mobile and tablets, Windows 8 mobile devices and also Blackberry.
The use of HTML5 mobile development has many key advantages over the more traditional native approach where mobile workforce applications are concerned. The main advantages are:
