Embrace the power of the web
HTML5 apps are first-class citizens in the Ubuntu SDK. In the same way native apps do, those developed with web technologies adapt to any device and form factor they run on.
You can now develop HTML5-based Ubuntu apps that take advantage of all the features of the technologies that power the web: offline storage, geolocation, video and audio, drawing canvas, rich semantics and markup… and much more.
You can now easily port your HTML5 apps developed for other platforms with minimal adaptations for a native look and feel to Ubuntu.
If you also need device access
Mobile users expect to be able to use their devices regardless of the underlying technologies. In many cases, also HTML apps need to interact with sensors and devices to make the most of a smartphone.
While HTML5 is evolving rapidly to provide access to devices and sensors, native device support is not yet available using the standard set of web technologies. However, until that functionality arrives, Ubuntu already covers those needs.
