    Hi Ulrich,

    Telerik Platform is an end-to-end solution for cross-platform mobile development. It features an IDE which enables you to develop with one HTML5 (CSS3 and JavaScript included) or TypeScript code hybrid apps for all supported mobile platforms. The IDE includes a simulator, source control (Git and for the VS extension – TFS) support, code analysis tools, etc., in order to make your work easier and hassle-free.

    When you create an app in the Telerik Platform, you need to choose between hybrid development with Apache Cordova and NativeScript development. 

    • Hybrid
      With Hybrid app the HTML, CSS and JavaScript code base runs in an internal browser (called WebView) that is wrapped in a native app. Native APIs are exposed to JavaScript through this wrapper.

    • NativeScript
      NativeScript lets you create truly native apps using JavaScript. The code is written in JavaScript and gets compiled to native code for each supported platform. The result is a native app for each platform.

    You can read more about them here.

    From your question I assume that you are interested in building a Hybrid application (for mobile devices) and have it also available as an web app in web browsers.

    In brief, the mobile apps can access device capabilities such as the accelerometer, camera, contacts, and more. If your mobile apps offers the user the usage of native device capabilities, most of them will not run in a web browser.

    Surely, you can reuse the portion of the JavaScript code for your web app, but for building a web app you may consider your preferred IDE and technology and basically, a separate code base.

    Other Telerik Platform services like Data/Users/Analytics are also available for usage in a web app as well.

    Let me know if you need additional information.
