Apps Fall Out of Favor
Smart phones have become so popular in part because of "apps" but the presence of HTML5 will really take form in 2012. HTML5 is the language for showcasing information on the web, and as companies like Microsoft, Apple, and others begin to integrate HTML5 into their software, apps could become a thing of the past.
Review:Not even close on this one. Apps continue to do well, with Apple, Google, and Amazon continuing to see dizzying pace of downloads on their devices. At its developer conference in June, Apple announced it had surpassed 30 billion downloads, and Google recently surpassed 25 billion downloads. This gravy train isn't stopping anytime soon. Grade: Q- (Definitely not showing this one to mom and dad.)
