Betting completely on HTML5 is one of the, if not THE biggest strategic mistake we’ve made.
Mark Zuckerberg, speaking right now at TechCrunch Disrupt
About damn time somebody said it.
HTML5 is still not ready for primetime. Mobile web has more users than native apps for Facebook, but the native app users can’t be ignored, they are the most vocal users after all.
Facebook’s native apps sucks, they did improve their iOS apps, better get their actions correct for android and maybe for WP7/WP8 before every FB mobile user is pissed off, i suspect, the biggest competitor to Facebook would be some Mobile-only network.
Now that FB is paying attention to its iOS and android users, i feel excited for the new announcements and updates.
