Is your website ready for the new iPhone 4S?

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011 by Servage
Yesterday Apple unveiled it's new iPhone 4S. It is similar to the old iPhone 4, but features upgrades with camera and performance, while maintaining the design. In combination with the upcoming iOS5 and cloud services, Apple is lining up a serious upgrade to customers, offering even more functionality. "iPhone 4S plus iOS 5 plus iCloud is a breakthrough combination that makes the iPhone 4S the best iPhone ever," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "While our competitors try to imitate iPhone with a checklist of features, only iPhone can deliver these breakthrough innovations that work seamlessly together." Sales expectations are extremely high, and it continuous to validate ...

Is WiFi just a transition technology?

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011 by Servage
Wireless Networks, most commonly known by the abbreviated term WiFi are available around the world. I'm not even sure how many WiFi access points there are, but simply counting the number of sold WiFi routers and access points from major suppliers like DLink, Netgear and Cisco show that it's millions and millions around the globe. Private home access points, business networks and public hotspots - WiFi is everywhere. Even in trains, buses, on ferries and almost in every hotel and cafe. Staying connected has increasingly become not only a wish, but also a necessity. First for business, now even for an increasing number of private people, being on vacation or similar. Being ...

Build mobile apps with jQuery Mobile

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011 by Servage
Mobile development platforms are hot right now. Everyone seems to be working on mobile versions of their apps, whichs is pretty cool. Earlier I've written about Sencha Touch, and the integration between Sencha Touch and PhoneGap to create native apps, based on HTML+CSS+JS technology. Today I'll make a little introduction of jQuery Mobile. Most mobile developers surely have seen jQuery's effort to become a player in mobile technology as well, and they do have a very interesting product. jQuery Mobile enables developers to build apps for mobile devices with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, hence utilizing the skills the developers are likely to already have. Like Sencha Touch, no native development is ...

Getting started with Sencha Touch

Friday, April 29th, 2011 by Servage
Recently I described Sencha Touch, a mobile development framework which allows you to create rich web applications. It gives an almost-native experience on various mobile platforms like iOS and Android, while using open web standards such as HTML5, Css3 and JavaScript behind the scenes. Read the previous posts about Sencha Touch and converting into native apps for more information. Some users are having difficulties getting started developing, because basing most of the (or the entire) code on JavaScript is new to them. Most have some experience, for example with jQuery, integrating plugins or other JavaScript functionality into websites, but creating an entire MVC app in JavaScript seems ...

Convert JavaScript apps into native mobile applications

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011 by Servage
In the previous article I discussed the possibility to develop native feeling apps with web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. Today I will show you how to take this one step further, to create real native apps based on your web app, which you might have created for example with Sencha Touch. Now, I maintain my opinion that general technologies are to be preferred, and used to deploy on multiple platforms. Generally I am not a fan of developing custom apps for various platforms. It seems like doing the same thing over and over again. However, some functionality requires that you interact with the user device natively. You Sencha Touch ...

Create native feeling mobile apps with JavaScript

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011 by Servage
I find it rather frustrating that numerous modern platforms use an increasing amount of different systems. Not long ago we had major platforms such as Unix and Windows to take care of, but today we are working with consumers on a plethora of platforms. There are not only different browsers in different operating systems, but also native app developers face decisions to develop for Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOs, Android, WebOS etc. Some platforms have bigger market shares than others, but I feel it’s bad practice to exclude potential customers based on their platform of choice, merely because we are unable or don’t have time to develop for their operating ...
