Who Needs Flash?

June 16, 2011 13:49:47.000

Facebook won't be needing it, apparently - at least mot on their mobile, html5 version of the site. Gizmodo reports that they are working on a way to route around Apple and the App Store within the bounds of what Apple allows on IOS:

Eighty outside developers are supposedly working on the project including those from companies like Zynga. Games and credits will be included so you can farm to your heart's content. And yes, it will supposedly land on Android, but the first target is iOS.

If that pans out, expect a lot of the excitement over iPad specific magazine apps to flow back to HTML5.

Update: Ironically enough, TechCrunch is now reporting that Facebook is, in fact, working on an iPad app. They still don't need Flash, but perhaps they've decided that HTML5 isn't enough :)
