Chapter four is focused on application development for Android, iPhone and WebOS platforms. Platform specific development concepts are described and displayed on basic code examples. It is followed by comparison and summary of platform’s advantages and disadvantages. Final chapter includes my findings and conclusion based on observations during this dissertation. It also defines the platform I focused on for future development and guidelines for future research.
