Characteristics of the web that have not been recreated, or have only partially been recreated with mobile apps so far.
Universal client – One piece of code on each client device that runs all apps, removing the need to install and manage client code.[tweet https://twitter.com/Simonkhalaf/status/462472372025425920 align=”center”]
One-click App Access (“install”) – Run any app by clicking on a link.
Permissionless Innovation – No approval required by anyone to bring new web apps online; no opportunity to bottleneck or censor.
Instant Universal Updating – Make a server-side change and all running instances of the app are simultaneously upgraded.[tweet https://twitter.com/Simonkhalaf/status/462472987971563522 align=”center”]
Trivially easy creation of situation-specific apps with any programming/scripting language on any operating system. Some being just a few lines of code.
Deeply integrated Link (URL) Model, Framework, Format, Specification – Native to how apps work and how users experience them.
Trivially easy integration and layering of 3rd party services with web content apps, from search engines to social networks to Twitter.[tweet https://twitter.com/akarve/status/462473687162048512 align=”center”]
