Shell Apps and Silver Bullets

Shell Apps and Silver Bullets | Mobile Applications | Scoop.it
When people want a native app, they are asking for an app user experience, which is more complex than the web experience. For instance, users want apps to load immediately. That requires a client side cache, which is inherently more complex than a stateless client. There are no silver bullets to solve essential complexity. Trying to abstract away essential complexity only makes things more complex.

Sometimes the quest for a silver bullet comes from a good place. Technology is about removing mindless work. Great engineers go through a phase where they try to create the ultimate framework to remove their daily grind, only to realize it’s more work to maintain a gigantic framework.

The difference is shell apps come from the wrong mentality. They start from, “How do we reduce effort?” instead of “How do we deliver the best product?”

Great products require more work. They require commitment, attention to detail, and leaving your comfort zone. Shortcuts are just a distraction.
