Web-app mockup that maps heart rate with user-location and time. This was a student exercise in building app prototypes with phonegap and other web technologies.

It was really nice to be able to build something for mobile and touch interactions. D3 also served to be a great web library for visualisation.

There’s still something a bit off though with using something like phonegap to build a native-looking app. I’m of the mindset that currently mobile apps should either be:

  • built completely native, and look like a native app
  • or built purely with web technologies, and embrace the notion that it isn’t native
