With the advantages of HTML5 offering a completly new method of accessing the web, developers are faced with the task of determining how applciations can be best suited for the web market.
Often times, developers who want to build interactive applications are required to build for specific platforms, be it the iPhone, Android, iPad, or in Flash. But with HTML5 offering the a similar user experience from within supported browsers, it will be possible to build the same, rich application once, and have it available for any device which supports HTML5.
Now I use the term ’similar user experience’ because there will be features offered on some platforms which will not be supported in HTML5.
We are starting to see the Android platform offered on future tablets, and I always ask the question, will we have to build two versions of the same app, one for the iPad and one for the Android Tablet? Or will it be possible to build one application on HTML5 and have it supported across both tablets?
