There is some really heated debate over the future of the web at the moment. From Sergy Brins latest warning on the rise of facebook and mobile apps, to the continuing battle over whether the cross platform, standards based nature of HTML5 will win out over the seemingly more costly but slick experience of the […]

Having recently done a whole bunch of work with in-app purchases that had to be systematically ripped out and binned, I thought that it might be worth highlighting some of the issues that you might face if you are considering using in-app purchases (IAP) as means to generate revenue from your app. The Current State […]

Last week saw the iPads second birthday. With the third generation iPad 3 expected later this year and with Apples latest profit announcement, coupled with a corporate vision to see it become the defacto ‘standard’ for schools and colleges, it is hard to see its dominance being curtailed any time soon.

The survey of 450 business and IT executives revealed some interesting figures. It also revealed a clear lack of strategy when it comes to mobile adoption in the workplace. But what exactly […]

If you have been reading any of our recent posts you will know that we have been exploring some of the ways mobile computing is developing. Its roots go way back, but the coming revolution was probably kicked of in earnest by the smart phone. Oddly, when the iPad arrived on the scene many people, […]

I read a disturbing article on TechCrunch this week about the ‘likely’ possibility that Windows 8 will let you run your mobile phone apps on your computer. Now I’m going to give the article the benefit of the doubt. After all, it goes on to talk about the next version of the OS perhaps offering […]
