Who’s doing it?

Some of the biggest brands in the world are already using HTML5.

Financial Times

Many brands don’t like being part of someone else’s ecosystems because they lose control of pricing and subscribers. The Financial Times recently announced “it will shut off its iPad app completely following the success of its HTML5 web page” so that it can have full control over its applications.

Ford

Burrows Communications Agency created the “Ford Showroom” application for their client by utilizing HTML5. Burrows states that “the days of companies just wanting an iOS based application are over. Now, it’s all about cross platform and how many Android tablets and iPads you can support. The cost savings of not developing twice can add up to the hundreds of thousands.

Vimeo

Vimeo used HTML5 for a self-hosted awards show because they wanted “the benefits of native app performance and user interface without the limitations of slower development time.” With HTML5, one standard link operated across all devices and Vimeo didn’t have to waste time and resources into building costly apps for various devices.
