re: National Weather Service Bans Mobile App Development
It's worth remembering that the world wide web was created to hook disparate systems together a generation ago and hasn't suddenly stopped doing so because of the business imperatives of Google or Apple to have custom apps locked into their platforms A web page with HTML5 can have rich content and interactivity, viewable from Macs, PCs, Linux, Droid and iOS with skills that are much more common than those of iOS or Droid development. Even open source web servers can be setup to provide higher levels of security like smart card authentication to extend internal web sites out into in the mobile realm.
