HTML5 on the iPad — magic

We recently carried out some interesting UX design and built a quick POC for one of the world’s largest banks. The concept was a forward-looking cross-asset online offering merging research, analysis and execution, with some clever workflow.

We delivered a fully working HTML5-compatible web app to the client – not bad for just 3 weeks’ work, including UX analysis and design. The bank seemed very pleased with it, and is currently demoing it widely to internal stakeholders.

What took us by surprise was their casual disclosure that they were doing most of the demos on an iPad.

We hadn’t designed the app for an iPad, and hadn’t even tested it on one. But thanks to the wonder of HTML5 (and our Web framework!) it just worked.

Try that in Flash or Silverlight 😉
