Jason Grigsby (Cloud Four)
Location: Ballroom IV

Awesome. You’ve got your location-aware iPhone app development plans ready to go. You’re ready to start building your killer app when someone asks, “Hey, will it work on Droid?”

Maybe you should look at web technology, but there are disadvantages there as well? What makes the most sense depends on what you are trying to accomplish and what device characteristics you need.

In this session we’ll look at mobile web, native apps, and hybrid applications (a.k.a., Rich Mobile Applications).

When does it make sense to build each type of application? What are the limitations of each? And where is each technology headed?
