What Makes HTML5 So Important For Mobile Web Development?


HTML 5 is the new standard for mobile browsing. It is the fastest, easiest, and surest way to ensure that your application is compatible on every type of mobile device. The apps and websites coded in the programming language are the easiest way to get your products seen by the biggest possible audience.

What are some of the key elements for mobile web application development?

Offline support is one of the key features built into it. Mobile developers can store things locally on the actual device, and this will stop interruptions that affect the ability of someone to get work done. Canvas and video is another feature set that allows you to add graphics and video to a page without plugins. HTML 5 is actually supported by the phone’s hardware on many devices like the iPhone. This is a great way to get media onto a page. GeoLocation API is often used alongside with it. This programming language also makes it easier for the browser to handle more of the work. There are several hybrid application frameworks that use HTML 5 to create interactive experiences. Phone Gap and Titanium Mobile are two examples. HTML 5 adoption is being driven by the need of mobile.

Gmail is an example of an app that relies on it to provide a rich interactive experience, and there is no need for apps and stores to get it to work. The whole idea of apps and stores is out of touch with the abilities of HTML 5. HTML 5 is the savior of the mobile platform. It is a great way to deploy multiple devices instantly without the app store. All you have to do is point at a URL, and it’s installed. Apps can be installed from a URL instead of an app store, and so there is a larger market for developers to work with it. There is a greater responsiveness of native apps, however.

Video, audio, and animation are now usable within the mobile phone browser instead of using Flash. Content is then viewable automatically on any device, tablet, or phone without having to go through a slow process such as the app store or making it available on numerous platforms all at once. More and more people are using the mobile web, and there are faster wireless connection speeds, higher Wi-Fi access, and more choices in streaming content, and the social network is also contributing. It is native on all mobile browsers. Developing for the mobile web is definitely a good idea, even before you go through the app store. This is the signature language to develop on any mobile device. The iPhone and Android have adopted most of the specifications. Opera Mini supports around 10% of HTML 5 standards. IE Mobile 6.0 doesn’t have hardly any support for it The important thing is that all the major browsers for the mobile experience support HTML 5.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
The end of HomeGroup

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all users to Office 365 at some point later this year. Office 365 brings other services as well which include Outlook Web Access. The question that surely must be on everyone’s mind is that why is Microsoft doing this? According to The Verge the reason behind this migration is to make sure that Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 platforms are perfectly aligned. In favor of keeping things consistent Microsoft is going to go ahead and add the consumer to the mix as well. There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for, Microsoft’s general manager of Office Apps Rob Lefferts suspected that much. It’s worth nothing that Microsoft hasn’t updated its consumer email service for quite a few months and it even showed the door to G…
