Hosted Web Apps bring the best of the web to store apps with minimal effort. They are a great way to reach more users with the experience you’ve already built. And when you update your web experience, your users get the same update in hosted web apps too. The hard thing about hosted apps was how different the process is on every platform. manifoldJS changes that by putting the focus on the W3C Manifest for Web Apps – a standards-driven, open source approach for creating apps – and then uses that metadata to create a hosted native app on Android, iOS, and Windows.

Join James Quick and Dave Voyles as they show us how to easily create hosted hybrid web apps with manifoldJS.
