    Today’s read – How To Build A Mobile Website 

    This one is really helpful. How To Build A Mobile Website. This article talks about the stylesheets, mobile stylesheets, customizing them, how to reduce the bandwidth usage and handling iPad/iPhone.

    Over the past few years, mobile web usage has considerably increased to the point that web developers and designers can no longer afford to ignore it. In wealthy countries, the shift is being fueled by faster mobile broadband connections and cheaper data service.  However, a large increase has also been seen in developing nations where people have skipped over buying PCs and gone straight to mobile.

    Unfortunately, the mobile arena introduces a layer of complexity that can be difficult for developers to accommodate.  Mobile development is more than cross-browser, it should be cross-platform.  The vast number of mobile devices makes thorough testing a practical impossibility, leaving developers nostalgic for the days when they only had to support legacy browsers.

    Android 


    When I came back to my hectic days of work after my long holiday break (hope you guys know what “a ten day break” means to we IT people), I heard about Android, the open handset project. I have been to mobile app world for quite some time and it thrilled me a bit. I am not ready to give you my perspective on that, but can give you some good content references.

    Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. This early look at the Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language.

    Top mobile applications of 2007 

    Fierce Mobile Content - Top Mobile Apps 2007 

    Fierce Mobile Content announced the Top mobile applications of 2007.

    What a difference a year makes. When FierceMobileContent inaugurated its Top App Awards in the autumn of 2006, the emphasis was squarely on the entertainment and multimedia applications then revolutionizing the mobile platform. Twelve months later, mobile subscribers have evolved from consumers to prosumers, and instead of watching video clips and listening to music, they’re socializing, shopping and searching. Content consumption is out and content creation is in–after all, why watch videos when you can upload your own?
