Here come the hybrid apps.
It looks like Microsoft and Apple are not the only ones that think about the unification. According to the latest report, Google is working on a toolkit, which will help developers to create Chrome apps for their own Android platform as well as iOS.
The main difference between Android and Chrome apps is that later are built for the web by default and Google is using Apache Cordova (a core of PhoneGap) to accomplish their goals.
While the search giant has refused to comment on the story, you can expect some sort of Beta announcement in Janury, 2014.
