HTML 5 is the new standard for developing light scalable applications on multiple platforms. Seen as an alternative to Adobe’s Flash®, HTML 5′s openness and ease of development has lead to companies like Apple and Google pushing for the new technology. Other attractive features that HTML 5 has as standard offerings include CSS3 based animations, video and audio streaming support as well as support for geolocation services. Social Cubix has positioned itself right from the early stages of HTML 5’s development to develop the requisite skill sets required to build complex applications with feature sets as rich or richer than flash powered versions of same applications.
Because HTML 5 supports multiple platforms, most clients opt for it as the development technology of choice for economic and schedule reasons. HTML 5 development for multiple platforms usually just entails full development on one platform and adaptations on the others. Social Cubix has explored these adaptations to the fullest from our experience in developing scores of HTML 5 applications including multiplayer games, utility applications and casual applications on platforms such as Facebook, OpenWeb, iOS, Android and Windows Mobile. We have also helped clients re-develop current applications that bug down server resources and drive unreasonable costs for maintenance. Clients have seen dramatic improvement not only in the stability and supportability of their applications, but also an improvement in the front-end user experience.
Although HTML 5 offers its unique features and advantages, we carefully consider each client’s project to ensure that it is indeed the best technology to use without compromising on the quality of the application including speed and efficiency. In certain cases, it may still be advisable to opt for native applications but with the rapid development of HTML5 and it’s openness, the stack has become faster and more responsive.
