Actually, they might need to separate "dangerous area" by population. A Jewish Israeli would find a refugee camp dangerous, and a Jewish settlement safe. A Palestinian might find the reverse (although he's likelier to be denied entry at the gate of the settlement than be shot). An Israeli Arab might be safe in both places.

Comment Web apps vs. desktop apps (Score 1) 218

If you develop a native app people will use everywhere, you probably need these version:

1. Windows
2. Linux
3. iOS
4. Android

And then you need to convince people to download and install your software, because it is not malicious. OTOH, with a web app they just need a browser.

Native apps may be a better solution when you are doing a custom application for a specific business, and all their employees have Windows desktops or laptops.
