Which type of Web app?

By rvmaher ·
Hi all, my first post and looking for some advice, so please be gentle :-)

My business uses a serious amount of paper and my staff are continually filling in forms, charts, records etc. I aim to get them all onto tablets for this reason, but also so we can archive everything electronically which we need to maintain for 6 years for legal requirements. Currently I have a large room full of boxes of the stuff!

Any way, I believe I could run a web server and either create a web page for the forms which feed back to a database, or go down the Webview/WebApp route. I'm thinking a web page although I may want to add additional functionality further down the line, adding photos etc. All on android devices.

My skillset includes HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and a bit of Sql and a few other web development tools. Should I stick to what I know and create everything in the browser, or would you recommend I further my skillset first and go the route of a hybrid web app? I heard Ionic may be a good framework to use.

Any advice or direction towards what I should learn would be greatly appreciated.
