Last week Facebook launched an iPad app, along with improved versions of its iPhone app and mobile browser site (m.facebook.com). The mobile site is based on the latest, interactive version of HTML (HTML5). If browsed on the iPad, it looks almost identical to the iPad app. However, there is still a significant difference between the mobile versions (the apps and HTML5 site) and the full desktop browser version of Facebook.com. But over time, they will all converge.Facebook’s mobile moves are part of a larger trend called responsive web design. It won’t just be the code bases that change either. We, the users, will notice the differences too. For example, it’s likely that Facebook’s desktop website will over time utilize more of the design patterns in its mobile apps and site.
