In this report from our Creative Guidance series on Mobile App Dev we present a practitioner’s perspective on key tools for hybrid mobile app development. This report is for CIOs, CTOs and IT Managers within organizations, who have decided, or are considering, whether to build hybrid mobile apps. The aim is to help identify the best fit developer tools for the specific skills, legacy systems and project requirements of the organization.
