The mobile apps concept has revolutionised the mobile phone sector, giving way to smartphones and tablets. And yet, in the near future, even greater changes will be coming, as traditional web apps adapt to the new HTML5 standard. Not only does this standard work on laptops or computers, but it also works on smartphones, tablets, smart TV’s and other devices which will mean that we will be able to go online using an ever greater variety of devices. This will mean that innovation in software and services will have a decisive effect on the user experience and on the different platforms through which the apps are executed.
Nowadays, apps development is at the forefront of web development. Creating new user-experiences within devices such as smartphones or tablets is a priority, bearing in mind that more than 55% of mobile phone holders currently have a 3G and/or WiFi connection, which makes it a clear a future market. The development of HTML5 apps offers a user-experience that is totally integrated in the device (phone, tablet, laptop, pc…), making it easier to develop and maintain than classic apps. The features and functions offered by HTML5 apps are equal to those offered by the native apps, allowing access even to the hardware and resources offered by the operating system. This makes it possible to standardise development across different mobile platforms.
