comment The main user action on my page is importing files, does it matter that my import button isn't next to my select files button?
Is there any reason why you would think it wouldn't improve the interface?

I think those questions were before many sites starting doing this... now it's very common.

comment My team has to build an app that requires a Facebook auth to enter a sweepstakes. At what stage should the authorization happen?
True, but I think the general idea of not bothering the user unless it is necessary stands. The two choices are, A) stop users from using the app until they sign up, or B) Let them use the app, and if they choose to enter the sweepstakes, let them do so. Similar to A) Stop users from buying products until they sign up or B) Let users buy things, and if they choose to sign up, let them.

comment Any Research on User Experience Perceptions of Native Apps vs Web or Hybrid Apps
I think the terminology is getting confusing here. PhoneGap apps must use a subclass of WebView on Android apps. Otherwise there is no place to run the javascript that PhoneGap requires.

@JohnGB Not according to the UX SE tag: "A web app is an application that uses technologies such as Javascript, CSS, and HTML5 and is executed in a web browser. Developers release their applications as web apps because of the larger flexibility of the format. The application can be run directly from a website, or, if it uses the HTML 5 Offline Application Cache and Web Storage, can be downloaded and installed locally, for offline use"

@JohnGB Many PhoneGap apps have the HTML and JS files stored locally in the app file (.apk for Android) and the WebView loads them from local storage.
