What a strange question to ask a web designer, I wonder what I might say!

Actually as you will hear in the video, my answer is that there is a place for both. As Headscape’s Rob Borley explained at this years IWMW talk, both native apps and the web have a role to play.

This is also something I have been thinking about in a recent article I wrote for Smashing Magazine.

In short this is something people have tried to turn into a battle between native and web. It simply isn’t and we shouldn’t paint it as such.
