Facebook to produce a native Android app
posted by Alan F. / Sep 11, 2012, 6:27 PM
Facebook became a native iOS app, giving users a quicker and more responsive experience. And while Zuckerberg said that a native Android app for Facebook would be coming soon, he also said that "it will be ready when it’s ready."
At the conference, the founder of the social networking site admitted that Facebook made a mistake with its mobile app and relied too much on HTML5 instead of just going native. He noted that much of the infrastructure used on the iOS version of the app will be used on the Android app. Facebook seems to be focusing on mobile and more of its employees are going to be working in that area. It's a strategy that has been paying off for YouTube with over 1 billion daily video views shown on a mobile device. The bottom line there is the money coming in from mobile ads which is something that Zuckerberg would like to see Facvebook more involved in.

Also, Facebook needs to push its game developers to make the same game available for smartphones. So, if I plant crops in Farmville, I can harvest them on my phone app.

Last 3 updates on Android have been horrible. I went back to using the browser which likes to suddenly restart my feed when I scrolled over half way down. Hopefully they can make something that actually works. RHO Elements and various others try to market their HTML5 garbage then attempt to force you to use their addons and such with half the capabilities of Native. I switched to Basic 4 Android to make my apps and would never go back to HTML5 other than web apps that load in browsers on Desktops...not phones.
