What is the advantage of using HTML5 for developing windows 8 Apps over XAML?

    Question

  • I want to know the advantage of using HTML5 for developing windows 8 Apps over XAML. Can I use HTML5 based app to port my app into multiple devices compared to XAML? If I am not creating a windows 8 APP but writing an HTML5 based web site, in that case can my site can access device specific features like location, camera etc when using windows 8 based devices?

  • I do not think there is any major differences in what is available to the 2 ways of making windows store apps.  I think you should choose what method to create an app on based on what you know.  If you are a web programmer the HTML5 template is probably better for you.  If you know xaml than that should be the way you go
