Hundred of thousands of Android applications use WebView to display HTML content. In Android 4.0 it’s hardware-accelerated, which allows support for HTML5 features such as inline video, CSS 3d, CSS animations, and overflow elements. This talk will give an overview of the underlying implementation in ICS, explain how to best take advantage of WebView in your application, and cover best practices for high-performance HTML code.
For years we built web apps that far outpaced the capabilities of the browsers they ran in. Just as the browsers were catching up HTML5 came on the scene - video and audio, canvas, SVG, app cache, localStorage, @font-face, and more. Now the browsers are racing to stay ahead of the wave that's building as developers adopt these new capabilities. Is your HTML5 app going to ride the wave or be dashed on the rocks leaving users stranded? Learn which HTML5 features to seek out and which to avoid when it comes to building fast HTML5 web apps.
