A few years ago when the iPad first came out we had a vision of getting the best of our daily newspaper on the iPad for our readers. The idea was the easy part. Realizing that vision took a lot of research and debate. Should we hire someone to build it for us? Should we buy a turn-key solution? Should we build it ourselves? And if we build it ourselves what is the best approach?

Any of these approaches [can] lead to success, but how quickly do you want to get there? Whether you do it yourself or you hire out, you have to be knowledgeable about the approach.

On the topic of best approaches to building mobile solutions we put together a visualization to help you decide what direction you might take. Also I’ve included a pdf of the image if you intend on printing it. Please share this all you want … just remember to link back and give us credit.

We’d love to talk more about our efforts in web and mobile development. Tell us what you are working on or trying to figure out.
