Mobile Web vs Native Apps: An Evening With Walmart Labs

December 7th, 2012 by

Whether it’s “Mobile Web is Dead” or “Mobile Apps Will Soon be Dead“, the last two years have seen some sensationalist opinions by journalists on both sides of the web versus apps debate. And the argument erupted earlier this year after Mark Zuckerberg made a searing statement claiming HTML5 to be Facebook’s biggest mistake.

This past Tuesday evening the battle raged on, albeit in a less apocalyptic tone, as I had the pleasure of attending a good old fashioned mobile web vs apps debate hosted by Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer from Walmart Labs (@WalmartLabs).

Sidenote: I’ve seen Ben and Dion (former key WebOS team members at Palm) present a couple different times over the years and they do a great job in making things interesting and bringing a lot of history into the discussion—Tuesday’s meetup was no different.

Bringing Mobile Web to 2012

October 1st, 2012 by

Breaking Development ConferenceFresh off the plane, coming back from Breaking Development conference (@bdconf) in Dallas, packed with 3 days of stimulating presentations and discussions with such Web thought leaders like Brad Frost (@brad_frost), Lyza Gardner (@lyzadanger) and Luke Wroblewski (@lukew) to name a few. Right off the bat, 2 points were clear to me. First, how far Web technologies have come in the past couple of years and second, how hard we still need to work to bring mobile Websites to 2012.

What do I mean by bringing mobile Websites to 2012 you ask?

Dolphin Browser Makes a Serious Splash in HTML5 Waters

August 22nd, 2012 by

The mobile world is abuzz over the Dolphin mobile browser (@DolphinBrowser) recently passing the first 2 levels of Facebook’s Ringmark test. The Ringmark test checks for “a wide range of HTML5 support” and was created “to help bring mobile browsers up to acceptable standards of speed and usability.”

How hard is it to pass? VentureBeat points out that Dolphin passed the tests before Firefox for Android, Chrome for Android and Apple’s Safari: “Dolphin has successfully passed Ring 0 as well as all of Ring 1, something that no other mobile web browser has done. In fact, even the web browser on your computer might not make it past Ring 1.”

Why is it exciting?

Mobile Web Development Examples – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly (April 2012)

April 27th, 2012 by

This is our first entry into a periodical series looking at some of the latest and greatest achievements in mobile web development. Not intended as criticism, but rather as an exploration into the possibilities and realities of mobile web.

With the HTML5 standard almost baked and the latest Javascript and CSS styling, mobile web has taken some huge steps in the last year. Whether you like it or not, HTML5 is still a buzzword in the web developer community…and possibly even more so in the mobile community. The buzz shows no signs of slowing either — as a recent announcement from the W3C said, they are in the midst of finalizing the HTML5 standard and looking forward to HTML6.

Here at Trilibis, we are equally excited, albeit a bit hesitant, about where mobile web development is headed with the likes of HTML5. At any rate, we thought it’d be fun to periodically showcase a few standout mobile sites to get some real world examples of exceptional creativity and strength in mobile design. So without further ado…
