Josh Clark, on mobile apps vs HTML5 web apps:
Fact is, we all use both. According to Comscore, 37 percent of mobile users browse the web, and 35 percent use downloaded apps. Presumably those are basically the same people, since about 35 percent of mobile users have smartphones. So it’s not that one is winning over the other in terms of usage; we use both.
This is basically what I’ve been meaning to write for weeks (lesson learned; get off one’s arse sooner). There’s been too much hyperbole recently about native vs web and precious little about appropriate, technology-agnostic solutions.
