Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has said that they will be releasing a native Facebook app for Android, he told Michael Arrington at the TechCrunch Disrupt Conference 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 also said that “Native is going to be the approach that we go with for iOS and Android.” Much of the same infrastructure that Facebook built for iOS will be re-applied to Android, but as for an ETA for the app, Zuckerberg said “it will be ready when it’s ready.”.
Zuckerberg did not give any details on when they intend to release their new native Facebook app for Google’s Android platform, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
