Gatis Vitols, Ingus Smits, Oleg Bogdanov

Abstract

Mobile devices are one of the most popular devices for access to web applications. Problems that arise in development process of mobile web applications are the same as with desktop applications. One of the fundamental problems in both cases is cross platform development. At the moment three mobile application development methods can be identified: web-based, native and hybrid. When developing business applications, hybrid application development framework can be most appropriate. From evaluated hybrid application development frameworks and styling tools Adobe PhoneGap with JQuery Mobile have the highest compliance to the criteria researched in this study.
