At present, HTML5 seems one of the overwhelming app development platforms for developers. According to a recent survey, commissioned by Telerik’s Kendo UI over 5,000 developers worldwide during January 2013, majority of developers are willing to work on HTML5, instead of developing native apps for cross-platforms. Only 15% of developers are likely to go for native apps building for multiple platforms. Despite Facebook’s decision to abandon HTML5 development in the favor of a faster, smoother and better native app experiences, developers prefer to develop apps using HTML5.

More importantly, about half of 5,000 developers (surveyed) admitted that they had already developed apps using HTML5 in 2012, whereas 90% of respondents were willing to do so in 2013. A majority of developers (66%) said that they were interested to develop apps with HTML5 for Windows 8 platform. Undoubtedly, it would be a great hearsay for Microsoft to celebrate. In addition, 47% of developers polled in the favor of Chrome for building apps, followed by 13% and 8% of respondents, those were willing to develop apps with HTML for BlackBerry 10 and Tizen platforms respectively.

App developers interest on HTML5

Developers, respondents during survey, worked for small and medium businesses (51%), followed by 29% and 20% of respondents those worked for startups and enterprises respectively. More importantly, developers believed that BlackBerry and iOS were the most difficult platforms to develop apps.

HTML5 apps for mobile

It has also been noticed that developers prefer more to develop apps using HTML5 for desktops; 87% of developers are now interested to build apps for desktops, followed by mobile websites with 53%. Indeed, developers are less interested to develop native apps for cross platforms, especially for Android, which is still stuck with fragmentation issues. However, developers are little more interested to develop apps for Android platform using HTML5 than iOS and BlackBerry due to ease in building.

  1. Very
    interesting results from the survey.   It
    seems to support other predictions about how HTML5 will continue to evolve and
    become more and more common.   The work
    we’ve been doing with http://bit.ly/HP-Anywhere and
    HTML5, is aligned with this trend.  In
    this case, I think HTML5 will be a key technology in the future of mobile apps
    in the enterprise.  For enterprise apps
    (apps that need to connect employees with back office systems and each other),
    HTML5 is a natural fit.     Though, I would suggest that the preference
    for HTML5 and hybrid for enterprise http://bit.ly/HP-Anywhere will increase over time.  
    If you want to check out the HP Anywhere IDE a free download is
    available in the http://bit.ly/dev_anywhere.

    very usefull to build app fast and to get feedback from your users. So
