I've recently started doing research on this topic but to no avail as i'm not getting the answers I wanted so I'm here once again:
Would I be better of developing a Mobile app and a Desktop app or would the web based version be good enough in terms of speed and efficiancy to do it thataway?
Extra notes: The server will run the main program or web service. Desktops or mobile devices connect to the server and its DB.
Everyone wants to do the smart thing here. If i can run one html 5 page and not develop for different mobile platforms, why not. My own company is facing this decision and i think they are going to try html 5.
My main gripe is i think the app offers a more direct and personal delivery of whatever you are providing to customers with more control long range. I'm in the process of taking a project i did for android and essentially doing something similar on ios. I think the key for development on multiple mobile platforms is to to let the apps share a similar design and data as much as possible.
