Ziconix is on board with HTML5, the next generation of language for web apps. For over 10 years, this specification has been under development with mobile device use cases being a big consideration. HTML5 finally allows developers to write mobile apps that look “native”, having taken into account factors such as poor connectivity, high latency inherent in today’s wireless networks and the need to connect to device sensors such as GPS. Support on Android, iOS and Blackberry for HTML5 is excellent and allows cross platform applications to be developed much more efficiently than separate native apps.
Ziconix has been involved with mobile web from the start, launching a .mobi restaurant booking system back in 2007. For projects that don’t require much hardware integration and need to be deployed across all of the major platforms quickly, an HTML5 based web app may be the best fit.
