    Hi rsgkorru,

    You can read all advantages and disadvantage of WRT at http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technolog...s/Web_Runtime/ and http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technolog...ickStart.xhtml

    Do post here if there are still any doubts.

    Hi rsgkorru,

    adding my opinion to Chintan's useful links, WRT is perfectly suited to bring Web-style apps and services to mobile devices. A typical example is a service that must gather data from some remote web-services and then display this data to the user.

    With Platform Services, available on latest S60 devices, you also have access to device and user data with a really easy-to-use JavaScript API, that allows, for instance, to access:
    * Contacts
    * Messaging
    * Location
    More details are available here:

    Generally speaking, WRT (in its current state) is not suited for graphically or CPU-intensive applications/games, as well as for apps/services that must deeply integrate with the device functionalities (even if, with ApiBridge, this could someway change).

    Hope this helps,
    Pit

    one aspect that WRT does not yet do well is playing sound and video directly in the application. I really hope Nokia re-examines this aspect of WRT for the next release. We need HTML 5 javascript api and better support for embedding and playing a variety of sound and video formats from directly within a WRT application rather than resorting to launching the phone video/sound player.
