Report says that the apps ecosystem has little fear.
A report by market research firm Strategy Analytics says that HTML5 will have just a minor impact on the apps ecosystem.
In fact, far from replacing native apps, the report declares that HTML5 will result in the rise of hybrid apps that combine an HTML5 core with native APIs.
Josh Martin, director of apps research, Strategy Analytics said: "HTML5 is not the future of apps. While developers dream of ‘write once run everywhere’ the fragmented support for and limited APIs within HTML5 make this impossible.
“In fact, we predict the hybrid app is the future. Existing business models are protected, differentiation among and within ecosystems remains intact, and consumption continues unabated. The end result is the continued dominance of iOS, Android, and increasingly Windows Phone.”
