1. A method for enabling the creation and management of a platform-independent application whose appearance and functionality is consistently propagated across heterogeneous device types for cross-device interoperability, replicability, and compatibility of applications and data with a consistent user experience, the method comprising:

  • receiving, by a device, a platform-independent data superstructure defining the appearance and behavior of an application, the platform-independent data superstructure storing an application state, program code and internal logic of the application;

    instantiating, by a superstructure-dedicated operating system, the application in the device in accordance with the received superstructure;

    receiving, by the platform-independent data superstructure, from a device-native operating system via communication with the superstructure-dedicated operating system, at least one application event generated by the instantiated application and representative of an update to the application state of the application;

    updating, by the platform-independent data superstructure, information in a first segment of the superstructure associated with the at least one application event, responsive to receiving the least one application event and independent of an update to a second segment in the superstructure; and

    updating, in accordance with the superstructure segment update, the application state in the device.
