HTML5 – the most sought code in mobile application development and responsive websites for mobile operating systems like Android, iOS, Symbion, BlackBerry & Windows. Though mobile applications developed using tools like PhoneGap, Sencha etc are with good user interface, HTML5 mobile applications perform well better and are apt example for Native Mobile Applications.
Mobile applications are differentiated into two major types i.e., Native Mobile Apps & Cross Platform Mobile Apps. Creative HTML5 mobile applications are 100% to empathize smartphone users & also created baiting over the next versions of the mobile apps. Satisfying the end users will be the ultimate goal in developing a perfect mobile application.
Similar to the MVC model in Dot Net applications, HTML5 also has DOM (Document Object Model). DOM is the process where the browser creates a model / flow in which the mobile app loads its components. In-short, HTML5 creates a standard flow for accessing a feature or document etc in a mobile app dynamically.
HTML5 has become a game changer in website development, which in turn, provides a competitive advantage to brands and businesses. One of the major benefits of imbibing HTML5 in your development is – it enables cross-platform development for a range of mobile devices.
Rise of HTML5 Mobile Development:
HTML5, and with it HTML5 web app development, offers developers a range of powerful new capabilities versus native development. Chief among these are new syntactic features such as video, audio, and canvas elements, which make it much easier to add multimedia and graphical content on the web without having to rely on plug-ins and APIs.
HTML5 also includes new components that make web pages more semantic – including the ability to create editable content areas — along with support across different types of Internet browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Windows Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome).
Several advanced and robust features such as camera, GPS and accelerometer in modern devices can be used with HTML5. The ultimate focus is to provide a user experience that is customized and context driven on a wide variety of devices, including smartphones and tablet computers.
Apart from the development process of mobile applications with HTML5, there are more benefits as below:
- Cross platform development
- Cost effective & time saving
- Multiple browser/OS compatibility
- Secured back end for database
- User friendly & crystal clear UI
- Remote accessible for updates
Types of Cross Platform Mobile App Development:
jQuery Mobile framework takes the “write less, do more” mantra to the next level: Instead of writing unique applications for each mobile device or OS, the jQuery mobile framework allows you to design a single highly-branded responsive web site or application that will work on all popular smart phone, tablet, and desktop platforms.
Limitations of HTML5:
Sluggish performance: Data and screen features need to be called down on every page, thus resulting into indigent performance.
Numerous device-specific features including NFC, barcode, camera and readers cannot be accessed through browsers, thus resulting in second-rate UI.
Much less storage/cache space for retrieval of elements in both the states including online and offline.
Many developers work in languages that are not relatively native for different platform-specific. This might decrease the overall efficiency of code, which depends on the translation engine, which in turn, results into redundant coding techniques .
Advantages of HTML5 Mobile Application Development:
A native app offers a better user experience, but it involves more resources to build and maintain. But on the other hand, HTML5 mobile app can be developed faster and it is cheaper to implement. HTML is a good choice for the developers who have resource and time constraints and want the app to be implemented across multiple devices and platforms. The learning curve is also not steep and most developers have knowledge on HTML5, so it is easy to start an application based on the client’s requirements.
2.Cross platform tool:
Now business owners always try to create mobile apps that work on various devices. HTML5 development offers the ease to code once that can be run on multiple platforms without making any changes to the code. It is compatible will all the web browsers and so no extra efforts are required to run it.
3.Instant updates and deployment:
HTML5 mobile apps can be easily created and released on the web and they are not dependent of any app store platform in order to host the app. It does not require any approval and this makes it easy to deploy the app in the app store.
HTML5 mobile app development is the best option for single base codes and it also helps to gain better visibility. Leveraging HTML5 technology is a great way to improve the consumer’s experience and it helps the brands to deliver the users a rich experience across all the major operating systems.
