Mick Johnson, product manager at Facebook, said he did not think the company had made a mistake in using HTML5 since it had helped the firm get the product to this point.
But he added that the rewrite to “native code” should mean users would notice a difference, even though there had been only minor tweaks to the app’s look.
“We tried to look at what is the core Facebook mobile experience and eliminate the pain points,” he said.
“The three things we really focused on were opening the application, scrolling through the news feed and tapping into and viewing a photo. So we made all those things twice as fast.”
He added that the rewrite had taken more than half a year to complete, but had no information about efforts to improve its counterpart on Android.
