Windows 8 platform is HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery. We are already beginning to develop websites with this technology and we are going to make sure we stay ahead of the crowd to ensure we are able to continue to deliver cutting edge technology to our clients, new and old.
The FT is first major publisher to quit the App Store in favour of a web-based app. In a blogpost it says “No more updates to the existing app will be published from the iTunes store” and says readers wishing to use the latest version of the app should always navigate to http://app.ft.com from their device’s web browser.
Readers can access the FT’s content free during the launch week, after which they’ll need to register to access to ten free articles a month or take out a subscription. In a statement the FT says the HTML5-powered app will be “be adapted across growing number of other tablets” including the BlackBerry PlayBook.
Writing on FT.com, head of mobile Steve Pinches, said: “Developing multiple ‘native’ apps for various products is logistically and financially unmanageable. By having one core codebase, we can roll the FT app onto multiple platforms at once.”
