The success of mobile apps depends on reaching your target audience regardless of the device they use. Tools for developing cross-platform mobile applications help developers in this endeavor.

Using complex technologies such as Objective-C Xcode or API for iOS Mac , iPhone and iPad; Windows API, Visual Studio and C # for Windows PC; and Android APIs, Java and Eclipse for Android smartphones is a complex and difficult process. It is much easier and efficient to use HTML5 development tools for mobile applications. The app developer’s wish is to provide seamless user experience and functionality. The developer also wants his app to have the intrinsic ability to run on new devices that are continuously added to the market. We will see how much HTML5 can help in this regard.

HTML5, which is a markup language, has several features that allow you to run on devices specifically designed to consume less electricity. For example, laptops, smartphones and tablets have processors that consume considerably less energy than desktop computers. It is the preferred markup language today for structuring and presenting content on the Internet. Strategy Analytics predicted that by the end of 2014, there will be one billion HTML5-compatible devices. This language can be used to develop interactive websites for multiple platforms and browsers. Therefore, tools for mobile application development based on HTML5 are attractive to developers who target mobile users.


HTML5 code writing is relatively easy to learn in comparison with other technologies mentioned above. Companies can save money if they develop applications that work on all operating systems rather than having native apps. You can also use the code as a reference for projects based exclusively on Android, Windows or iOS.

HTML5 allows to develop applications that easily adapt to different resolutions, screen sizes, aspect ratios and guidelines. Advanced features such as GPS, camera and accelerometer in modern devices can be made use of excellently with HTML5 and provide a user experience tailored to the context in a wide variety of devices, including smartphones and tablet computers.

Other advantages are:

Applications can be deployed as a local web applications and can also be viewed in browsers.
Mobile applications can use the same monetization and distribution channels as native applications.
Applications are not restricted by the frames of the windows, and browsers can run in full screen mode.

Users have complete control of the devices and their screen space.
Centralized code can be modified to that interfaces to various devices.
JavaScript, HTML and CSS are the backbone of the Internet and web applications; thus, migration of development tools to mobile devices is simpler.


Whenever a change or a feature is added in iOS, Android, or Windows, HTML5 development tool must reflect or take into account the change and make the necessary adjustments in the code. This means that the tools of mobile application development platform always go behind the official SDK.

Other disadvantages are:

Sometimes it takes too much time to get mobile applications ready because developers have to write code for each platform.

Developers work in languages ??that are not native to the platforms; therefore, the efficiency of the code depends on the translation engine. It often happens that coding techniques are inefficient or the code is redundant.

The difference in execution times of platforms often causes complications in the mobile application development platform.

The HTML5 standard was evolved in a relatively short period and this produced discrepancies in the implementation of CSS attributes, HTML tags and JavaScript APIs. Sometimes these features behave differently on different platforms. However, there are tools available to resolve these discrepancies.

These are some of the advantages and disadvantages of the tools of mobile application development platform based on HTML5.

Since the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, HTML5 will continue to be "the" trend in the world of application development.
