Would like to know the best approach. I would like to create a non-native Android application to be hosted on a web server. I would like some type of control on the Android device that would have complete control over the peripherals (ie. barcode reader, keyboard) but retrieve data from web services on the device. This would ultimately be deployed on an Android device, but more than 10,000 devices so application must be on the web server. This could also be deployed on an iOS device in the future as well. Been playing with PhoneGap, but it isn't really giving me what I want. A web control on the device with the guts on the web server and non-native. Any advice?
