It allows adopters to implement uMobile components as either web-based or native apps, as preferred.

Browser-Based and Native App Functionality
uMobile enables a single code base to provide both browser-based and native-app functionality from a single portlet. This approach also allows adopters to implement uMobile components as either web-based or native apps, as preferred. The native apps that come out-of-the-box with uMobile are created using open source Appcelerator Titanium®.
Native Device Integration
Native device integration improves the performance and usability of uMobile while providing universities with a presence in the Apple™ App Store℠ and Android™ Marketplace. The native app also integrates with native device resources, such as GPS and address books, to provide features like directions to campus locations and download of contact information to the user address book.
