    Great article, but maybe another alternative is develop with Cross-Platform frameworks which use phonegap and you are able to generate an app and use offline and also use phone features such camera, bluetooth, etc..
    Depends that you need and how much do you want spend..

      Thanks, Daniel. Yes, cross-platform ultimately is used to create native apps, just that same code is reused to create multi-platform apps. The advantage is that you save time and cost, however, cross-platform might not support all features for all platforms, e.g. Titanium framework I know doesn’t support Windows platform fully. So there is always trade-off going native vs cross-platform, which you need to select carefully based on your requirements.
