I wonder if there’s there a reason behind this trend or is it a transitory phase as the wifi coverage improves. Based in a field in Galway there is poor access to mobile web but apps are great. Is it because they operate apart and update on reconnection. I think that if wifi coverage was always on and widespread then the pattern may mature and reverse back to web.
*Gratuitous field in Galway to break up the waffle*
As folk start to acknowledge the sheer amount of data being gathered via apps ( see Color, Facebook post
) we may think again and revert to direct web.
As html5 becomes more widely used will the balance change? I think it will swing back to a new landscape, a universal connection. Whether you are accessing touch screen navigation or keying in on a laptop, there will be a degree of interoperability.
I can see a future where the mobile experience will be exactly the same as if on a pc lap top television touchpad whatever? So then why would we be downloading apps when chrome books take us ‘live’ on the net as it were. Chromebook style maybe?
