Going it Alone isn't so Scary

Abstract

This spring we launched version 2.0 of our Lehigh University mobile app, “LehighU Live”. The newest release was a complete rebuild on a new development platform. After much consideration, we chose to develop on our own, steering clear of a vendor provided solution. We ended up choosing Phonegap to build an HTML 5, on device app. Phonegap gave us a viable development solution that worked for our environment and saved us spending significant money for a vendor based 'cookie cutter' university styled app. We built a full featured app, with plenty of room and technical capabilities availabilities for growth, all while dedicating less than 1 FTE to the project. This is our app story. It has value for those looking for a fresh start or those looking to expand their existing solution.
