What: directCanvas for Enhancing HTML5 Rendering
Who: Andrew Smith - Developer Evangelist for appMobi
While many pundits and observers of the mobile app industry openly admit that HTML5 is quickly becoming the dominant app development platform (for many reasons), they often temper their statements by saying rendering speed, responsiveness, and sound issues may prevent HTML5 from dominating mobile game development.
appMobi has created a new canvas object that is streamlined and optimized for the drawing functions typically used for gaming, but has none of the normal rendering overhead mentioned above. directCanvas is accessed in exactly the same way as the Standard Canvas (same calls to a different object).
