We’ve made a number of optimizations to our iPhone/iPad codebase over the past couple of months, the effects of which can be seen in the attached video:
(Because our application is so dependent on the network, the new code won’t appear to outperform the old code 100% of the time. This is…

Really interesting HTML5 work from Honda.
Facebook’s HTML5 Resource Center
Many developers are now using HTML5 to build apps. It is easy to develop for and it works across a number of different platforms, with minimal or no code change. You can code in something as simple as Notepad, and instantly see it come to life in the browser on your desktop, phone, or tablet.
Today we are releasing three new HTML5 resources to help developers learn from our experience and the experience of other industry leaders building HTML5 apps:
