Interviews on mobile web applications

MobiWebApp logo

The number of days remaining before Mobile World Congress is dwindling (a number of W3C staff will be there), and mobile applications are bound to be in everybody’s mind there as it has been in the industry for the past three years or so.

I, as many others, believe that the Web has an important role to play to complete, and sometimes compete with, the world of mobile applications.

The EU-funded MobiWebApp project in which I’m participating allows us to get a wider look at the landscape of mobile Web applications, how they are currently used and more importantly, what are the needs to make the Web an even better mobile development platform.

As part of this effort, I’m starting a series of interviews from actors in the field, from companies who are building or are considering to build mobile applications based on Web technologies.

I’ve just published on the MobiWebApp blog the first of these interviews, where Manrique Lopez de la Fuente tells us how the company he works in, Andago, is using Web technologies in their mobile application development, and more specifically in the field of mobile healthcare and well-being.

If you too are interested in sharing your experience in this space, please contact me at dom@w3.org so that we can get the discussion started.

In the meantime, stay tuned to the MobiWebApp interviews to learn from other companies!
