I mentioned that I think “an app for that” is overdone when many use-cases call for a connected client. ( See original comments here http://algray.com/?p=18 ) And yes, I know HTML5 can be used in an “offline” mode too.
Given my opinion that HTML5 approaches should be considered first before OS specific apps, I found this infographic interesting. ( http://www.wix.com/blog/2012/07/the-authentic-infographic-history-of-html5/ )
Thanks to Shar Govindan for Tweeting (@SharGovindan) about this.
