Because Friends Don't Let Friends Write HTML/CSS - Coming from a native code background, writing mobile apps in HTML5 has been a nightmare descent into HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. HTML/CSS should never be touched by human hands and relegated purely to output from tools such as Handheld Designer. Handheld Designer takes your GUI layouts and spits out the HTML/CSS so you can get to the real work of coding the logic of your mobile app. I honestly don't know how people wrote HTML5 mobile apps before this.

Only supports resolutions up to iPhone 5 - This seems like a good piece of software but seriosuly in need of upgrading. The most recent iPhone it supports is the 5.
