Mobile web apps can have the functionality of a platform native app with all the cross-platform advantages of a website. Based on HTML5, which is now supported by most up-to-date web browsers, web apps enable you to bypass the expense and inconvenience of building the same app for multiple popular mobile platforms.

Examples of web app tools

  • Bootstrap: Simple and flexible HTML, CSS, and Javascript for popular user interface components and interactions (Twitter)
  • Zepto.js: the aerogel-weight jQuery-compatible JavaScript library
  • jQuery Mobile: Touch-Optimized Web Framework for Smartphones & Tablets
  • Sencha Touch 2 Build Mobile Web Apps with HTML5
