Why aren't web apps typically able to compete with native apps? Why IndexedDB still is no WebSQL/SQLite replacement, and may never be.

A short story about how Killermatch 1 was born, what technologies it uses, and what technologies were used for making Killermatch 2. This is primarily written for developers.
May 13th, 2015
Hooray, we launched! Starting today Killermatch 2 is available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, and web of course.
Yes, see the download buttons above!
Be aware: There is an older Killermatch app in the Google Play Store which can be also be downloaded. This is the old version (Killermatch "1") and will be discontinued shortly.
Killermatch 2 currently supports Android versions down to 4.4 (Kit Kat). Initially we supported versions down to 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwitch), but it was just way too much work due to the old software technology shipped with most pre-4.4 phones. Our apologies in advance to users who are unable to use our app because of this. We suspect many of these will be Samsung S3 users, and other similar hardware vendors with great hardware and sucky software upgrade policies.
Pricing has not been finalized. The basic version is free. There will be an option to upgrade to a premium version/subscription inside the app through a in-app purchase which also includes a free trial period.
Killermatch supports offline operation, meaning you can use the mobile apps even when your device is offline (which happens a lot inside big buildings where many racket sport activities takes place..). Offline operations require local storage. Local storage support in browsers varies a lot and is not yet properly standardized and supported. For now, Killermatch support the kind of local storage that works great with Chrome, Safari or Opera (it's called WebSQL). We plan to support all browsers (IE, Spartan, Firefox) eventually when there is a standard that actually works and is widely supported.
