Is the free EPiServer MobilePack for You?

The add-on for EPiServer CMS 6 R2 is out for international users, and it's free and open source.

The new add-on allows current EPiServer customers to create a mobile version of their site using existing content. The add-on will be part of the standard installation with future versions of the platform.

While discussing a mobile / smart phone approach based upon native or web application it's equally important to discuss generated, semi-generated or manually / template based mobile content for external and web sites.

Current status and ambition situation dictates what's best for your organization.

  1. the discussion regarding Native app or mobile web solution very old and based on the naivety amongst the people buying and limited knowledge amongst consultants/system developers and strategists.

    Only if functionality in the mobile device is actively used in the proposition should a native app be created, in all other cases is mobile templates the way forward.

    HTML5 webapps is the way forward and wil cater foor most functionality requirements towards tablets and smartphones. Apps can be used but solely as a distribution channel
