    Why do most mobile apps do registration & password reset by redirecting the user to a mobile web page instead of handling it in the mobile app? What is the pros/cons that I am missing?

    Hi, 

    One of the reasons may be because, they may be using third party authentication systems(Facebook, Twitter etc.,) or may be using a common authentication system which can be used across the applications!

    It totally depends on the design. You can have your own authentication system, which doesn't require to redirect to mobile web page, instead you can connect to a dedicated authentication system!

    Hope it helps u...

    Thanks, any security reasons as to why this seems to be the trend?

    Hi,

    No particuar security reasons. If you have SSL authentication system, it will be more secure!

    Hope it helps u...
