The facebook app is great, how's it built?

I'm using the facebook app right now, and despite a few limitations, it's shockingly good. Is it using a publically available sdk or something not available yet? some of the camera integration seems slicker than web works can do.

I've heard it's AIR.

 

I'm a bit sad sometimes seeing how much nicer AIR apps are compared to WebWorks at the moment...

That's interesting, yesterday on the playbook app world it mentioned "Adobe Flash" specifically, but today there's no mention of the underlying technology on the app blurb. http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/680?lang=en

 

I think WebWorks for Playbook may be like WPF in the .Net space. It had a lot of really rough edges until the Visual Studio team decided to use it in VS2010
