iPhreaks Show: Open Source with Sam Soffes
CHUCK: Hey everybody and welcome to Episode 11 of iPhreaks! This week on our panel, we have Pete Hodgson.
PETE: Good morning!
CHUCK: Rod Schmidt.
ROD: Good morning!
CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv. This week we’re going to be talking about the tradeoffs between "Web Apps and Native Apps". One of the things that kind of made me want to talk about this was that I remember a while ago, 37signals came out and basically said, "We’re not going to write iPhone Apps or Android Apps for our products. We’re just going to make mobile versions of the websites and people could just use that," and I thought that was really interesting. So I’m curious with you guys, what you see as the tradeoffs between one or the other.
ROD: Well, since they’ve changed a little bit, they’re now using RubyMotion for their Basecamp App mixed with some web technology, so now they’re kind of hybrid.
PETE: I think that’s a really good point. When I talk about this stuff to clients, I say like the question of Web versus Native, the answer is "Yes". And really it’s not like, "Should I do Web? Or, should I do Native?" It’s "Where should I sit on the spectrum between Fully-Native and Fully-HTML?" Actually, not that many people go to [Inaudible], so there’s not that many products that don’t have any installed app or tool, and there’s not that many products that don’t use the web at some point inside of their, even if it’s a Native App, a lot of apps still have webby stuff inside of them; that’s sometimes surprising.
CHUCK: What do you mean by webby stuff? Are you talking about —
PETE: Even just something as simple as HTML, an HTML View. Let’s say you’re doing legal disclaimer as the classic example they always use, you’re doing legal disclaimers for your app, you could do the layout and mock up and stuff in code. Or, you could just write some simple HTML, shove it in the UIWebView, and embed it in your app. That’s normally about a way to go.
CHUCK: Yeah, that was what I was wondering; it’s if they were using UIWebView,
