“Native platform development is going to be the approach”

Mark Zuckerberg about the new native Facbeook app (via Appleinsider, The Verge):

“Native [platform development] is going to be the approach that we go with for iOS and Android”. “We’re betting completely on it.”

Smart thinking, and much in line with our own philosophy on the matter.

He goes on:

“The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 instead of native [platforms],” and, “We burnt two years.”
