Remember when development was easy? "Hey! You! Build this thing!" And then you would go build it in Flex or Windows Forms or Swing or whatever runtime you were using. Thanks to mobile there is no consistent runtime across any of our devices anymore. Or is there?
The web remains the one application runtime that is impartial to device, operating system, contract, app store, vendor or developer. It doesn't care where you load your application. It's a constantly improving VM that continues to offer the quickest path from concept to application. We're used to the web being ubiquitous, but we're not used to how we draw a line between the web and mobile applications. It's a super fuzzy line if there is even one there at all. Are these two worlds separate, or can they co-exist?
We've been thinking a lot about this at Telerik. Come here about some of what we've learned in our journey to bring a manageable app experience to the mobile developer via the web. It's definitely a tale of blood and roses, but the option you have may surprise you. Mobile apps are too hard to build and that has GOT to change and change soon.
