With more mobile development tools on the market every day, there’s a lot to choose from. Native or hybrid. Mobile App Development Platforms (MADP), Rapid App Development Platforms (RAD) or Rapid Mobile App Development Platforms (RMAD)? Front-end tool or back-end tool?

4)    What is the licensing model?
