New headlines are cropping up about HTML5 Form and its benefits all the time. Look left and there's a burgeoning enterprise leveraging the programming language to launch its first mobile app. Look right and HTML5 is being used for game performance on iOS 8. When it comes to running a business, you want the best resources possible at your disposal. As the range of positive headlines about HTML5 indicates, it is one such asset. But in order to more concretely illustrate why HTML5 is the right choice for your enterprise, here are a few of the reasons it has become the golden standard for mobile app creation:
It offers opportunities beyond mobile devices. As much as we associate "app" with "smartphone," the former does not need the latter in order to exist. After all, remember those things called Web apps?

Fortunately, HTML5 isn't just a tool for building mobile apps - it also is a robust tool for Web app creation. This versatility on the part of HTML5 will only become more important moving forward.
"Hundreds of traditionally native apps are turning into Web apps as they provide advantages like interoperability, ubiquity and cross-platform," Jamardo stated. "The features added in the new HTML5 standard allow a much more dynamic Web content and the development of applications never before imaginable on the Web."
