With the evolution of mobile application development, the learning curve for the current generation of phones have been ever growing.

As developers, we’re often stuck in the middle deciding, which application to make, and often, what platform.

Sencha demonstrates HTML 5 can be faster than native iOS or Android apps (Facebook example) The Making of Fastbook: An HTML5 Love Story. When we started what became Sencha, we made a bet on the web: a bet that modern application development didn't need anything except the browser, a great set of frameworks and a great set of tools.

With those three weapons in hand, we knew developers could build applications that would delight users. The advent of HTML5 upped the game and it gave developers even more tools to let them treat the browser as an application development platform and not a page rendering engine. Developers sprang at the opportunity and unleashed a torrent of apps — on both desktop and mobile — that leveraged the new HTML5 capabilities to build amazing applications using web standards.

So, when Mark Zuckerberg said HTML5 wasn't ready, we took a little offense to the comment. We thought to ourselves: HTML5 can't really be the reason that Facebook's mobile application was slow. We knew what the browser on modern smart phones was capable of and what kind of rich capabilities HTML5 offered. Bonus Points. Fastbook. Pour Mark Zuckerberg, miser sur la technologie HTML5 pour mobile était une « erreur » - FrAndroid - Android. Ulrich Rozier • le 12 septembre 2012 à 09:34 12 septembre 2012 article Android Pour Mark Zuckerberg, miser sur la technologie HTML5 pour mobile était une « erreur » Lors de la conférence TechCrunch Disrupt aux Etats-Unis, le CEO de Facebook - Mark Zuckerberg – a évoqué la stratégie mobile du réseau social. Il a admis avoir « réalisée plusieurs faux pas (sur mobile) » pour ensuite sur-enchérir : « Notre plus grande erreur, c’est d’avoir trop misé sur la technologie HTML5 au lieu du native … Nous avons perdu deux ans.« .

Il en a profité pour confirmer une prochaine mise à jour majeure sur Android. Néanmoins, nous le savions déjà que Facebook travaillait sur une application « native ». Il n’y a pas que le HTML5 qui a déçu Mark, il a également évoqué son introduction en bourse (IPO) – « La performance de l’action a de toute évidence été décevante.« . Enfin, il a parlé quelques minutes de la publicité sur mobile, le nouvel axe de sa stratégie mobile. Source : Theverge. Mark Zuckerberg promises a native Android app, says betting on HTML5 for mobile was a 'mistake' Speaking with Michael Arrington at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted that "we've had a bunch of missteps on [mobile]," specifically referring to its mobile app strategy. "The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 instead of native...

We burnt two years. " He said that the company would also drop HTML5 in its Android app as well, and that a native version would be coming "soon. " "Native is going to be the approach. " "We're betting completely on it," he said, referring to native apps. He also spoke about Facebook's somewhat tumultuous recent history since its IPO. "The performance of the stock has obviously been disappointing. " As for the stock price, which has lost half its value since the IPO, Zuckerberg admitted that "The performance of the stock has obviously been disappointing. " Firefox OS Disrupts: It Is A Web-Based Phone For emerging Markets. With this week’s hulaballoo around the iPhone 5, it’s tempting to dismiss Firefox OS, the mobile operating system from browser maker Mozilla.

But of the two, Firefox OS is the one which aims to shake things up – while the new iPhone is just an update. Why do we need another OS when the existing ones are fighting so hard for market share, and previously strong players like RIM are going down the drain? Firefox OS is based on a Linux kernel and runs apps entirely in HTML5. Why has Mozilla done this, and why are the first phones launching in Brazil?

As it turns out, the organisation has two clear aims – and TechWeekEurope got a good explanation of both in a face-to-face chat with its CTO, Brendan Eich. It’s about opening up phone operating systems to the web, and serving a huge need – for cheap, functional phones in emerging markets. Forget the iPhone 5! TechWeekEurope saw a lot of interest in Firefox OS after publishing a series of images of the upcoming system. “Android is like Windows” Comparing Mobile Web (HTML5) Frameworks: Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, jQTouch, Titanium « InterfaceThis - Dave Feldman rants about product design.

It’s been an exciting year for the mobile Web. Adoption of HTML5 and CSS3, improved performance in mobile browsers, and an explosion of mobile app frameworks mean it’s more feasible than ever to create rich, interactive Web experiences for mobile devices. Using a wrapper like PhoneGap, you can distribute them via the native app stores for iPhone, iPad, and Android —targeting multiple platforms with a single codebase. Or can you? I needed a platform for Pints — a mobile app that answers answer the question, “Which beer should I order?” As someone who works in Web technologies on a daily basis I saw HTML5 & friends as an alluring option.

Pints isn’t complicated: a home screen, a few lists screens, a few forms. Mobile Web developers have a plethora of frameworks to do the heavy lifting for them: animated transitions, toolbars, buttons, list views, even offline storage. jQTouch jQTouch is easy to use and relatively well-documented. But even in my simple test app there were performance issues. Compare WebView framework.
