groovecoder: Packaged HTML5 Apps: Are we emulating failure?

‘When we discussed Sencha’s Fastbook app on the mozilla.engagement.developers list Robert pointed out that Sencha compared their HTML5 app running in mobile web browser to Facebook’s HTML5 app running in an iOS WebView – the way Sencha & PhoneGap packaged HTML5 apps actually run. It’s widely discussed, as we did with Fastbook, that HTML5 apps perform worse in iOS UIWebView than iOS Safari. There are similar stories about Android WebView performance, and Tulsa Web Dev and HTML5 PhoneGap developer Rod just posted a similar performance-related anecdote about BlackBerry WebWorks.’

‘That made me think, “PhoneGap is just that – a stop-gap.” … “we should drop this whole PhoneGap App nonsense and go (back) to mobile web at simple URL’s”‘
