Brian Fling and Cheryl Gledhill talk about the mobile web vs native applications. The mobile web is great in theory but they've run into issue after issue in trying to develop mobile apps using the mobile web over native functionality.

Brian questions whether JavaScript is the new frontier to solving mobile problems - do we forget the last decade of mobile development in light of JavaScript's new capabilities.

They also discuss mobile web frameworks such as Sencha Touch, JQ Touch and PhoneGap.

They question whether we should provide the most compatible experience across devices or the best experience we know is possible on specific devices.

Brian demos Sniffer (, pinchzoom's browser based app that detects CSS properties in browsers for cross-device testing.
