I see lots of brands advertising "Hey, download our mobile app and…" …and you will have a menu with 5 items. The most complex item probably will be a form with 3 o 4 fields and one submit button. Ah, with a success message!

- Do you really need a mobile app?

- Sure! I need user location and push notifications for some requirements.

- Well, browsers have those features nowadays, so why don’t you develop a web app with a good JavaScript framework?

I’m not a big fan of JavaScript but I must recognize its portability and that’s a good reason to begin

The main advantage is obvious: you will code only once. Also, you will skip Google Play and App Store submission.

Remember KISS: Keep It Simple and Stupid
