Hybrid sweet spot: Native navigation, web content by David of Basecamp

This is a great write-up by DHH of Rails fame about the Basecamp approach to native app development. They’re using a hybrid approach to take advantage of native experience where it matters, and development speed where the native responsiveness isn’t as critical.

It’s a great follow-up to my post on Mobile Web Performance from a few months ago, and hopefully a sign of things to come in terms of web applications making a resurgence in the mobile paradigm.
