SUMMARY: Developing for HTML 5 isn't hassle-free, but the platform's benefits outweigh the potential headaches, writes Hernán Gonzalez. The mobile-friendly platform lets developers build sophisticated apps while sidestepping Apple's 30% fee for App Store participation. "Is HTML5 replacing the highly-successful App Store? It surely does seem like it," Gonzalez writes.
If you are curious what the future of the Flash Platform will bring, here is an amazing sneak peek from the Unity 3D team. The next generation of 3D experiences in Flash will be enabled by the upcoming Stage3D feature of Flash Player 11.
Why app creators shouldn't put form before function
SUMMARY: Today's application developers tend to focus on making their products visually beautiful rather than functional, product design expert Chloe Bregman writes. But that trend -- which Bregman calls "pretty first" -- is a bad idea, since even the prettiest apps will fail if they're bug-ridden or simply not helpful. "Focus on creating a useful product first. ... [D]on't fine-tune each pixel," Bregman advises.
After all the buzz involving the HTML5 CSS3 duo, it is nice to check how websites are using all the good practices you can get from HTML5. When the buzz around the subject started, we could see a lot of websites totally animated. Now, after all the benefits of HTML5 settled, we can see websites taking advantage of it to create smooth transitions, nice image sliders and subtle animations. It is interesting to see the evolution of practices in this matter and that is why today we gathered some examples of websites using HTML5. Enjoy!
Some lovely examples of what can be done with HTML5/CSS3 when the development team refrain from trying to animate every pixel. I particularly like the Oscar Charlie site. A great showcase for their product.
HTML5 alongside CSS3 have many powerful and impressive abilities but that does not mean they all need to used in one site to impress. Restraint in use of the latest and greatest thing can be a challenge for some developers. Easy to get carried away.
Matmi's desingers and developers have a great respect for each others skills, ensuring functionality is always balanced with form - although some heated debates have been had in the past.

Mark Zuckerberg opened up recently about HTML5 and the difficulties that Facebook has faced in developing mobile apps. In a quote heard round the world, Zuckerberg called HTML5 “one of the biggest strategic mistakes we made.” Those are pretty strong words from the CEO of the most influential company in the mobile market today.
Facebook is experiencing slower performance with HTML5 compared to native apps on mobile devices and the diversity of mobile browsers, which leads to confusion among web hosting developers over which parts of the programming they can use—hence, the appeal of native apps.
A native app doesn’t need an internet connection to run; it’s much faster than loading an HTML5 web app; and, because native apps run directly from the phone, they have easier access to the microphone and camera, making them more capable than HTML5-based web apps.
Before you take Mark Zuckerberg’s HTML5 bashing as evidence that web apps are dead, remember that there are plenty of reasons why developers still like web apps in some circumstances....
HTML5 is still a baby, lacking in some core functionality, but I beleive it has a bright future. Native vs. Web app is a debate set to continue for some time. Atleast until HTML5 becomes a more settled, standardised language with improved functions, particularly relating to sound operations.
