Well, 2015 went by quickly! It was a huge year for Wijmo, especially for Wijmo 5. Deciding to write an entirely new set of JS Controls that broke away from the traditional Widget concept turned out to be the right choice.
Earlier this week I partnered with Kelley Ricker (my colleague at GrapeCity and the developer relations expert for Xuni native mobile controls) to conduct a webinar on the advantages and shortfalls of hybrid and native mobile app. He also posted this blog over at GoXuni.com, and I thought the Wijmo crowd would be interested, as well.
Mobile app development is an important topic that comes up often in many companies' current and future roadmaps. For those who haven't already begun to develop mobile apps, getting started can be daunting since there are many different approaches to mobile development. In the past we've compared Xamarin.Forms to PhoneGap, and tried to break down the various Xamarin and native platforms. In this article, we'll examine the hybrid web approaches (like Cordova and Ionic) and compare them more directly to native development.
Cordova and Ionic offer some really useful features that allows web developer to write native applications for each platform using web languages. These apps aren't mobile websites, but apps that sit in the app store.
Thanks to everyone who attended our Ionic webcast! Missed the webcast or want to share or watch it again? Below you'll find the recording and the slides used in the presentation.
