Mobile Developer Titan profile: Intohand

For a long time I’ve been interacting with Kieran Gutteridge on Twitter. He’s one of those independent mobile developers that the large mobile operators, manufacturers and platforms are chasing obsessively, quite simply, because if you can win him over, your platform might stand a chance. It’s all very well paying millions to a game developer […]

FreeAppAlert is a service that tells you when the app you’ve been wanting to buy — but weren’t prepared to pay for, becomes free. Across the evolution of an application, you’ll often see an app released for $$$ before […]

The crux of the mobile developer conundrum: Forget the 99% without iPhone

After reading my diatribe last night (“http://mobileindustry.wpengine.com/2009/03/mobile_network_app_stores_utter_utter_rubbish_today.html”), regular reader Terence contributed this point in the comments below: Something else to consider – there are no shortage of old, crap phones.

Get me a flight to New York, stat!

I’ve just spent an hour or so pointing a camera in the face of a very patient and highly animated Mark Tynan, founder of mobile travel geniuses, ShopQwik. With their service, you can book a flight or a hotel, anywhere in the world, in 60 seconds, from your handset. I was interviewing Mark for the […]

DeviceAnywhere — a walk through of the developer’s godsend

I still meet people who either haven’t heard of DeviceAnywhere‘s services or don’t quite ‘get’ what they offer. It’s a constant irritation. Ever since I got a demonstration of it about 9 months ago, I’ve been telling everyone and anyone about it. I’m also proper-made-up, as they say in some parts of the North of […]
