While debating various developments for a possible new higher level course – I’m being urged to explore apps in addition to more advanced topics for the curriculum. I’ve always been on the side of the open and all inclusive web and so I am keen to stick to my principles, collecting support cases for the advantages of web versus native.
Apart from being inclusive and accessible – the possibilities of reaching a much wider audience surely should keep information online, rather than locking it away, restricting access to only specific apps/devices. Lucky for me, with perfect timing, @brucel just wrote about one particular project which proves this point quite clearly :)
from @brucel, thanks, Bruce ;)

The following links are to articles relating to this topic, some excellent points, some bad arguments – all food for thought. I would be curious to hear your thoughts :)
