Mobile computing is clearly on the rise – but developing mobile applications, especially for multiple platforms, is a considerable effort. Fortunately, there is an alternative to native apps: web sites that are optimized for mobile devices and touch screens. In this presentation, I will discuss both solutions, and will present a hybrid approach. The presentation will also include a brief introduction to technologies such as jQuery, jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap.
Additionally, as an example of a mobile web application, CERN mobile web site (http://cern.ch/m [cern.ch]) will be presented.
