Abstract:Nowadays mobile apps are difficult to maintain because the update processes are slow due to long review times, changing technology and users that are not always running the latest versions. To accomplish these shortcomings websites are generally preferred, but they do not provide the same advantages as native apps. In this research a new approach to build apps is presented called Napton. Especially designed for mobile apps. The new Napton approach is a combination of native development combined with the flexibility of web technologies. Many mobile apps nowadays use the JSON format to exchange data between the server. The JSON data contains the content to present on the user interface. Napton uses JSON for content as well for business logic and building the user interface. This new approach opens new abilities for app development. It allows to change an app remotely and still use it as a native app. Another benefit of this new approach is that it uses less data and effort when making changes than other approaches.
