HTML5 mobile apps development Tutorials

Native html5 hybrid.pngScreens are small, apps are big, and life as we know it is on its head again. In a world that's increasingly social and open, mobile apps play a vital role, and have changed the focus from what's on the Web, to the apps on our mobile device. Mobile apps are no longer an option, they're an imperative. You need a mobile app, but where do you start?

There are many factors that play a part in your mobile strategy, such as your team’s development skills, required device functionality, the importance of security, offline capability, interoperability, etc., that must be taken into account. In the end, it’s not just a question of what your app will do, but how you’ll get it there.

Native components.pngLike Goldilocks, you may have to try a couple beds that are too soft or too hard, before you find the one that’s just right. And sometimes there’s just no perfect choice. Each development scenario has its pros and cons, and those might in be inline, or at odds, with your means. Unlike Goldilocks, there are no bears to contend with, and it’s our intent that this article keeps you from burning your lips on hot porridge (well, figuratively).

While this article addresses mobile app development in general, it is specifically targeted at developers looking to create mobile applications that interact with Salesforce.com, Force.com, or Database.com. Currently, the Salesforce Mobile SDK supports building three types of apps:

  • Native apps are specific to a given mobile platform (iOS or Android) using the development tools and language that the respective platform supports (e.g., Xcode and Objective-C with iOS, Eclipse and Java with Android). Native apps look and perform the best.
  • HTML5 apps use standard web technologies—typically HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. This write-once-run-anywhere approach to mobile development creates cross-platform mobile applications that work on multiple devices. While developers can create sophisticated apps with HTML5 and JavaScript alone, some vital limitations remain at the time of this writing, specifically session management, secure offline storage, and access to native device functionality (camera, calendar, geolocation, etc.)
  • Hybrid apps make it possible to embed HTML5 apps inside a thin native container, combining the best (and worst) elements of native and HTML5 apps.
