  What Happens When Apps Go On Sale?: Revenue Up 22% On iPhone, 29% On Android


In a new research report from Distimo, the app store analytics provider examined two different ways that allow mobile developers to get a bump in both their download numbers and revenue. One way, which is within the developers’ control, is putting the app on sale.

  Javascript Frameworks Are Too Small


A while back I stumbled upon a great post by Jean-Baptiste Queru. It describes the incredible depth of the modern technology stack. Layers upon layers of complex science, hardware, and software, each layer creating a simpler abstraction around the previous. This ultimately enables our paltry human brains to create amazing things that would otherwise be impossible (or really difficult). This is, in my opinion, the lifeblood of modern software development. For some reason, however, when i...

This diverse availability raises a critical question for both independent developers as well as large app development companies as to which platform to target. Although for larger app development companies, it is possible to simultaneously develop for multiple platforms, it might not be the case for small-scale enterprises. In...

  Android Hardware Buttons are not broken, let me tell you why
