Web 2.0 InfoWorld's Peter Wayner discusses the 11 hard truths Web developers must accept in making the most of HTML5 -- especially those who are looking to leverage HTML5 in hopes of unseating native apps. 'The truth is, despite its powerful capabilities, HTML5 isn't the solution for every problem. Its additional features are compelling and will help make Web apps formidable competitors for native apps, but security issues, limitations of local data storage, synchonization challenges, and politics should have us all scaling back our expectations for the spec.'

1 Hard truth about developing for iOS:

1. Apple can choose to put you out of business any time they want, for any reason, without recourse. APPLICATION DENIED.


What, and Google can't? If they pull your app from the marketplace, you're pretty much done. Just because they wouldn't doesn't mean they couldn't.

Targeting the wrong person much ? I've never seen Kroc defend an Android product in this place. If there is something which Kroc advocates, it's platform-independent web technologies.

Apple's App Store just happened to be the single best example, in today's world, of what may happen if you depend on a single tightly-controlled OS to survive...

Yeah... There are still alternative distribution paths for Android and you can resubmit your app to the Market in a few seconds...
