Larger API Capability
More Granular Control over Execution
Native Device Storage
Objective-C/XCode Programmer Dependency
iPhone/iPad Builds Only
Testing Requires Builds
Potential Blindness of Apple Fanboy Programmers
Extremely Low IP Theft Risk
Sufficient API Capability for Most Application Needs
Multi-Platform Capability (Desktop/Mobile - iPhone/iPad/Safari/Chrome/Android)
iPhone/iPad Add To Home Screen Deployment
Rapid Test Capabilities
Rapid Deployment via Web
Rapid Speed to Market
Programmer Base More Willing to Adopt
No Update Management for Clients
Limited API Capability *
Limited Device Storage
Performance Limited by Browser Capabilities **
Requires a Wrapper App for Apple's App Store
Sencha/Web Programmer Dependency
High IP Theft Risk (Users can see UI/Webservice Code) ***
I'm sure there are more pro's and con's, but these are off the top of my head.
* Most business applications will not need what the Native API offers.
** Requires research and benchmarks.
*** Software Development Firms May Risk Exposure of UI Code to 3rd Parties.
Contact me for any additional consultation...
