What do you think of Kony?

Valuable Features: I like the complete, professional social site. • Room for Improvement: Some features are only enabled for paid users. It would be much better if they enabled those features without having to pay. I would also like to see them publish information about future technologies on the Home screen under a separate tab. That would be an improvement.  • Other Advice: It’s useful to connect with different IT professionals in different companies.

What is most valuable?

The product makes it easy to start developing cross-platform HTML5-based applications for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone based devices. It leverages developers' existing HTML and javascript skills and uses a familiar paradigm to expose additional functionality (such as camera or location services).

What needs improvement?

Because it's a generic platform, it doesn't fully leverage all the subtleties of some of the platforms it runs on. Also, because the resulting applications are browser based, they don't always provide the fidelity and behavior of a true, native experience.
