How to decide between a responsive website or a native mobile app

How to decide between a responsive website or a native mobile app | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it

Many business owners and entrepreneurs struggle with whether they should design a responsive website that works across devices or focus exclusively on building a native mobile app.

It’s a difficult choice to make since both options present advantages and disadvantages that must be taken into consideration when moving forward.

As of last year, apps from retail businesses took up to 27 percent of consumer’s time, which sheds lights on how critical a mobile app can be to reaching your customers where they are active online. At the same time, 67 percent of consumers say they are more likely to purchase from a mobile-friendly website than they are from a website not optimized for devices other than desktop.

It’s a tough call to make when deciding between responsive design or an app, but in the end, it depends on the goals of your business.

App portfolio management and legacy modernization aren't going away any time soon. With technology rapidly changing, apps that have been in use for just a year can be considered dated. However, constantly starting with a fresh app isn't a luxury afforded to most organizations. Given the constant influx of tools and techniques, some experts say it's always a good time to conduct an app portfolio review.

Hanging on to legacy apps may seem like an easy way to save a financially-strapped organization some cash, but the tactic can backfire when old apps drain resources. In some situations, even trying to determine when an app needs to be updated can be challenging.

This guide brings together a collection of articles and key terms related to app portfolio and modernization techniques. When you're done reading and viewing the content, see how much you've learned by taking our quiz.

With over a million apps available on App Store, it is hard to pick the best ones. We make it easy with our list of 50 best free iOS apps that you must download

The Internet Of Things Will Need Millions Of Developers By 2020

The Internet Of Things Will Need Millions Of Developers By 2020 | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it

As big as Internet of Things could be, the only real way to measure its value is by developer counts, not sensor counts.

It's standard to size a market by the number of widgets sold, but in the Internet of Things, which numbers sensors and devices in the billions, widget counts don't really matter. In part this is because the real money in IoT is not in the "things," but rather in the Internet-enabled services that stitch them together.

Objective-C selectors in Swift



I was building new exercises in Swift—Apple’s new development language—for our upcoming iOS training class in San Francisco, and when combining Swift and Cocoa Touch, I discovered something really interesting.



In particular, for this tutorial, I will examine methods that require a selector as the argument, such as: performSelector:, respondsToSelector: or performSelector:withObject:afterDelay:.

For this example, I will create an NSTimer that will change the background color of a viewcontroller’s view every second. An NSTimer, just to refresh the concept, represents a timer object that waits until a certain time interval has elapsed and then fires, sending a specified message to a target object.



First, let’s write some code in Objective-C. If you are familiar with Objective-C, the following example won’t contain any secrets.



Begin by creating an iOS application using the Single-View template. Then, name the project Timer. Next, add a viewDidAppear: method in the ViewController.m and add the following code to the method:



[super viewDidAppear:animated];

How to Design an Effective Mobile Ad

How to Design an Effective Mobile Ad | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it
Learn how to design an effective mobile ad to increase your CT & install rates

Creating effective mobile advertising campaigns starts with creating effective mobile ads – it doesn’t matter how much you spend on pay-per-click bids if your ads don’t attract people’s interest. There is both an art and a science to creating attention-getting, clickable mobile ads, and better mobile ad design can save you money (and make you even more money).

Since most CPC/CPM mobile ad systems use a blend of per-click bid price and click-through rate (CTR) to determine which order to serve your ad in, it makes sense to spend time improving your ad’s design. A better-designed ad will lead to higher CTR, which means you will pay less per click. Better mobile ad design also helps you set expectations better for users (as they will have a better understanding of exactly what they’re clicking and what message they can expect to see on the other side) and build a stronger brand with a more consistent visual identity and messaging.

Here are a few tips on how to design better mobile banner ads – by keeping it simple for your users:

In this post, I would like to share these simple, often heard, and easy to implement things for iOS development community.

Unfortunately, on our planet everyman and his/her dog has an app idea since the Apple has released iPhone SDK. Therefore, many of iOS app developers have hard time to sort out client with a tangible idea. However, when client approaches us, we don’t know how she got inspiration for the iOS app development.

If any iOS developer think that, we should respect the client’s money and jump into the iOS app development without running further research in the market. If client fails at her idea, it’s her fault. We should only consider that whether project is technically possible or not.

How a Tiny Startup Used Reddit to Build an Army of 1,400 Ambassadors (and How You Can Too) - Zapier | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it

Pushbullet started as simple app for taking advantage of the rich notification functionality that came out on Android in late 2012. The company’s founder, Ryan Oldenburg, realized that his notification tray could be much more useful if notifications could actually come with some text or imagery. It would allow you to get to needed information faster.


The Google Play Store shows it’s an app with over 500,000 installs so far and more than 40,000 people have given it ratings, with an average score of 4.6 stars out of 5. It’s also on iOS, if you’re an Apple user. There’s another statistic that’s neither present in the Play Store or App Store, however, but it’s been equally important for the company: 1,420


1,420 is the number of Pushbullet users who have joined its subreddit,/r/Pushbullet.

Should product developers avoid over-reliance on user feedback? | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it
Can a reliance on immediate feedback loops and vast amounts of user data stifle true product innovation?

We live in the feedback era. Internet companies have an ever-expanding arsenal of tools at their disposal for gathering user insights. Social media can be used by pretty much any business to garner valuable sentiment about their brand, online analytics tools can harvest a vast amount of data and user metrics, and even brick and mortar stores will soon be using clever innovations like beacons to do similar things.

No wonder it's tempting then for companies to place sizable chunks of their product development strategy in the hands of their users. In my experience startups are particularly inclined to adopt this approach; many use the lean methodology made famous in Eric Ries's book, The Lean Startup.

What can go wrong? Users not only provide direction, they also form a safety net to catch your product if it falls. I've observed these principles being applied from within many companies. Having read the book and used the methodology myself, I think it's an entirely reasonable strategy.

But what about innovation? It's a much debated topic, but can we develop truly innovative products from the ground up while listening to users? In my opinion caution should be applied.

Why The Freemium App Business Model Is Irresistible - Startup Bloggers

Why The Freemium App Business Model Is Irresistible - Startup Bloggers | Mobile Development News! | Scoop.it
The freemium business model is a mixture of free and premium.

The creation of the internet made is possible, since it now costs so little for creative people to make new copies of their work and distribute them. Mobile technology has made it even more prominent, and now many businesses are using it within their models.

The idea behind the model is relatively simple. Someone will get access to a product for free, whether it is an app, software, an eBook, or even a video. That user will then need to pay a premium to gain access to the advanced features of the product. It could be access to an online forum or access to better features within the mobile app. Not all customers will decide to pay the premium and will be happy with the basic features.

However, a number will want to know more about the extras and that increases the chance of them paying. It is related to the tiered services, where people gain something extra for the more they pay on a monthly basis. LinkedIn is just one example of this type of tiered system, and many web hosts will have something similar. The following picture on the right is the classic description of the freemium business model.
