This explosive growth has not only given rise to an app driven environment but it’s also facilitating the usage of web apps over the native ones. The major reason behind that lies behind the advocacy of web applications are their social connectivity options. Application owners have realized that there is more potential to a participative mobile game on Facebook which has huge earning potential through mobile advertising as compared to a native application installed in the mobile device. But at the brink of this change mobile devices need better technological backup to successfully carry out this transformation.
HTML5 promises to be the main technical catalyst that looks promising to carry out this change.

The user experience provided by HTML5 gives user easy access, better performance with CSS3 and offline browsing support that makes HTML5 a front runner in the modulation of the web into Smartphones.
