Video: Native vs. Hybrid vs. Web

Here’s a video from the “What Developers Love and Hate about iOS, Android, Windows and HTML5” panel discussion that I took part in during MoDev East back in December.  The panelists represented native app developers, HTML/web developers, and myself-representing the HTML/hybrid app paradigm.

I had already done a lot of work using sounds in PhoneGap apps with my LowLatencyAudio native plugin, so the groundwork had already been […]
