Facebook app upgraded from HTML5 to new native code, adds performance imrovements
Facebook have finally launched their much awaited native Android App ending its long affiliation with HTML 5, which was the cornerstone of the app till now. The new version of the app which is based on Facebook’s own native programming code brings performance related improvements along with a few other new features which are relatively pleasing to the eye. So basically what we are trying to implement here is that with this newly adapted programming code, everything in the app has become really really fast; from notifications to messages to viewing pictures, everything has been looked into and improved accordingly.
Facebook have also added a few new transitions to the app making it more fun to use now than ever before. Android user’s for a long time have been quite frustrated with the official facebook app with complaints for sluggish performance, untimely crashes and in most cases allowing the device to freeze for no particular reason. With the new found version, facebook have seemed to eradicate all this and are now hoping for it to be successful as much as it is on other non-Android devices. Not so long ago we had mentioned about Facebook’s internal organizational campaign for creating awareness among their employees and telling them to shift their focus from iOS to Android.
