Proposed Recommendation for Mobile Web Application Best Practices

Posted by Brian Kelly (UK Web Focus) on 2 November 2010

The W3C have recently published a Proposed Recommendation of Mobile Web Application Best Practices.  This document aims to “aid the development of rich and dynamic mobile Web applications [by] collecting the most relevant engineering practices, promoting those that enable a better user experience and warning against those that are considered harmful“.

The closing dates for comments for this document is 19 November 2010.

There is much interest in mobile Web applications within the UK Higher education sector, as can be seen from recent events such as the Eduserv Symposium 2010: The Mobile University, the FOTE10 conference and the Mobile Technologies sessions at UKOLN’s IWMW 2010 event.  Much of the technical discussions which are taking place will address such best practices.  Since an effective way of ensuring that best practices can be embedded is to publish such practices by a well-known and highly regarded standards body I feel it would be useful if those who are involved in mobile Web development work were to review this document and provided feedback.

The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group provides details on how to give feedback, through use of the public-bpwg-comments@w3.org mailing list. Note that an archive of the list is available.
