    Dilemma-Management.com is a Chicago (United States) based consulting practice focused mainly on cross platform mobile: Apps and E-books. For the last 3 years we have developed 35 mobile apps available on Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Nokia. We have a proven track record of mobile solutions for small businesses. In general there are two strategies for companies that want to enter the mobile space: 1. Depth strategy - with this approach a company focuses on one platform. The budget is exclusively for one state-of-the art app. From a technical perspective, you go with native programming language as it allows super integration with the hardware: notifications, calendar, compass, etc. The budget and timeline are significant. 2. Breadth strategy - launching one minimum viable product on multiple platforms and incrementally react/improve. Here, the budget is lower as the company is in exploratory mode. From a technical perspective, HTML5 is used so that the code can be easily ported to other platforms. The integration with the phone hardware is more limited than when native programming language is used. We can cost effectively develop high quality and cross-platform (HTML5) mobile apps tailored to your needs; therefore, supporting your breadth strategy. In addition, we have published a book on this topic that is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FS0SFZ4
