HTML5+Google APIs = A New Era of Mobile Apps
When building nextstop’s HTML5 mobile apps, we were able to influence a powerful grouping of HTML5 and Google API’s to build a mobile web experience that we believe rival what we could have built natively. For more on our mobile apps development we will just focus on the technologies that made this experience possible.
Recently HTML5‘s video features have gotten a lot of attention, but it’s three other HTML5 features that we’ve found most useful for mobile web development.
If you’re using a recent version of Chrome or Safari or on an iPhone 3 or Android 2 phone and want a sense of what prefetching feels like, try clicking the left and right arrows here (you can ignore the warning you will see in Chrome and Safari).
2. Geolocation: Using the geo location features built into HTML5 (available on iPhone 3 and Android 2), we’re able to connect you with local information based on the GPS in your phone, so all you have to do is launch the app to see nearby recommendations. I wish it were a bit faster, but it sure beats entering an address or zip code — and it’s very easy to catch into as a developer.
As thrilled as we are about HTML5, things get even more interesting when you combine these technologies with Google APIs.
