    • 1 Comments
    Chances are that at some point you’ve searched for an app in one of the app stores. If you knew what you were looking for by name, you probably found it pretty quickly. If you simply knew the category, you have my sympathies. Let’s face it, app store...

    So many devices, so little time

    • 1 Comments
    It didn’t seem so at the time but not so long ago, developing for the web was actually comparatively simple. Sure there were some significant differences between browsers and some (ahem) got a pretty hard time for lagging behind. But at least there was...

    HTML5 - Not just because it’s new and shiny

    • 1 Comments
    After my giddy excitement over the Cut the Rope HTML5 game , Rob Ashton’s comment got me thinking a bit more. In some ways I take Rob’s point – using HTML5 because it’s new or shiny or cool isn’t the best of reasons for doing this kind of thing. (Although...

    Is Pinterest’s HTML5 app short-changing users?

    • 1 Comments
    It seems you virtually can’t move online without running into an article on Pinterest . As a platform, it’s certainly captured people’s (or at least the blogosphere’s) imagination. Core to the attraction is just how easy it makes sharing the stuff we...

    Is HTML5 cheaper to develop with?

    • 1 Comments
    There is an argument for HTML5 that runs: because it can run across multiple devices, HTML5 can help you slash the costs of developing new apps. Now, rather than dealing with the time and cost of developing native apps, you can simply write once and deploy...

    Privacy – it’s not what you hide but what you tell that counts

    • 1 Comments
    Online privacy is one of those polarising topics. For many people it’s the hot button that triggers all their feelings of mistrust against what companies do online. For others, it’s no big deal – they just don’t care. Me? I’m somewhere in the middle....

    Tech conferences – a four-point survival guide

    • 0 Comments
    I go to a lot of conferences. Some would say too many. In fact, it’s probably around 25 or so a year. So, about one every fortnight (although, like London buses, there may not be one for a bit and then three turn up in the same week). While some...

    HTML5 in 2012 – the year of mobile first?

    So we have a bright shiny new year on our hands. Both a leap year and the year when the Olympics comes to my home country. While the future looks iffy on the economy, it’s pretty rosy as far as HTML5 goes. They key, of course is mobile. Sure, HTML5 can...
