Comparing app and browser version
Geo-wind as App has the advantage, that Geo-wind is available on all mobile Devices , also on IOS, which does not support the Flashplayer.
Geo-wind apps have the advantage, that you can better controll the filesize under conditions with restricted transfer rates.
All the application code is saved on the device in the app version, which in the browser version has to be transferred over the net each time, you start geo-wind.
The browser version has more animations, like falling rain and snow and animated arrows also for waves, which are not possible under resticted memory -and cpu conditions on mobile devices. Restricted memory does also not allow different cloudtypes in apps.
