Facebook state of mobile

Facebook state of mobile





The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 opposed to native. Because it wasn't just there.

Facebook state of mobile





It's not that HTML5 is bad. I'm actually, on long-term, really excited about it.

BUT






Facebook's problems are not everyone's problems.


Facebook state of mobile


We have more people on a daily basis using Facebook on the mobile Web than we have using our iOS + Android app

Facebook state of mobile



More focus on phonegap plugins and improvements of the mobile web.

Distribution
FB drives traffic to you app/website (deep linking)

Performance
W3C CoreMob + RingMark benchmarks : rng.io
-> guess who's the first ?

Monetisation
Mobile web payments on native+web, except iOS :)

HTML5 mobile games



Player immersion

Perceived responsiveness

HTML5 mobile games




HTTP hates you
Application cache is a lie
Redraws hates you
Use raw javascript
Use direct selectors
Use CSS3 animations, and HW accel
Hammer.js is your friend


Take care of...

Porting cordova to Tizen

Porting cordova to Tizen




Tizen is a cross platform open source HTML5 OS built with Linux and webkit and funded by Intel and Samsung.

Should be merged with Bada.

Phonegap now compatible with the Tizen ecosystem.

Samsung smartphones coming in Q2 2013
