I wrote a bit about this over at daily.js. At PicPlz we built a hybrid mobile app. We had a native container written for iOS and Android that hosted a web version of our code. PicPlz was the first time I had worked on a fully mobile website. My operating paradigm was that I was building a website for a small screen. One day, our iOS developer asked me why our follow button didn’t just react when a user touched it.
