This article uses some pretty strong words saying that mobile apps are dinosaurs unaware of their own pending demise.  The reason the author feels so strongly is that Google has already begun introducing the next level of web based apps that let you download as you need wand they continue to work offline if you are disconnected.  This sounds an awful lot like the claims Macromedia made in the 90’s about Flash.  And now, flash is only a barely interesting part of the web.  It is certainly not interesting because of it’s user side capabilities that caused it to be the rage in the first place. At any rate, I find this an interesting, if misguided, article.  I can’t believe that we are going to go back to user side web-based apps and have to worry about what we keep or don’t keep in our cache again.  Submitted for your approval… Why Mobile Apps Will Soon be Dead
