Our company really needs a better functioning mobile version of our software. We’re really tired of trying to use our system on our cell phones and tablets. Is there an app for that?
Dear Exploring Mobile,
Ha! That’s funny! Of course there’s no app for that, but there are plenty of options for you!
You need to decide which approach to mobile software development is most appropriate for your company: native or web?
A custom-built native app will always win all of the aesthetic and exciting feature points. However, you may not need those advanced performance features, and in that case, an HTML5 (web-based) application might have everything you need.
We wrote a great post, comparing these two types of development, that will help you start your mobile conversation: The Race To Enterprise Mobile Apps, Navigating the Native vs. Web Course.
Congratulations on going mobile – it’s about time! You and your employees are going to be so happy – and so much more productive!
