Hi members,

I came along a huge debate about why Chase iPhone app and Bank of
America iPhone came up with a hybrid model rather than a complete
Native iPhone app design..!!!

Kindly put up light on this discussion.

WHY HYBRID!! WHY NOT NATIVE!!

Hi,

The iPhone Human Interface guidelines includes a section on this
topic:

----------------------------
%u201CContent on iPhone: Is It a Webpage or an Application?%u201D
(page 15) defines the different types of iPhone
content you can develop and how that influences what you decide to do
with your existing content. It
also discusses how to define your user audience so you can customize
your user experience and user
interface design.
----------------------------

The link to the guide is:

Thanks,
Marvin

i do find the Bank of America app very cumbersome
but still, i am glad they offer one
i was with Citizens Bank and they would not even work with Mint

platform out of the box

NATIVE: iPhone/iTouch only, Objective-C programming.
HYBRID: Cross platform, HTML/CSS/JS programming.
