One of the latest report has claimed that the tech giant Microsoft has looking to HTML for cross platform apps. The report has also said that the company is aggressively courting users on iOS and Android, and is bringing their apps to as many platforms as possible.The Microsoft had a plan to use HTML-based apps, which mainly by using the cross platform open source Cordova framework by Apache.
The tech giant Microsoft has mainly working on creating better development tools, with the help of these kind of frameworks to help developers create HTML apps even more easily and that is why they are using Cordova framework. The Cordova is the basis of Phonegap, that might be more familiar to developers and apps using Cordova are still packaged as apps using the platform SDKs, and can be made available for installation from each device’s app store.
The software giant Microsoft’s strategy is clear, it is kind of that Facebook has tried going down this path before, and ultimately abandoned HTML5 apps, with Mark Zuckerberg calling it their biggest mistake.
