This is the full text of Owen’s talk at the Responsive Day Out. It makes for a terrific read!
Revolutionising the way you revolutionise email.
The slides from Owen’s magnificent talk at the Responsive Day Out …but you really had to be there.
Speaking as a very lazy person, this really resonated with me.
Overcoming laziness can feel like moving the moon.
This makes me so happy! Matt is using Huffduffer. Specifically, Matt is using Huffduffer together with Instacast and this is how he’s doing it.
A good overview of making Huffduffer play nicely with podcasting software on iOS.
Huffduffer is a niche tool that, for me, solves a recurring problem. I can now save episodes from any device without having to subscribe to an entire show if I’m just interested in a a single episode.
A really fascinating analysis by Jason into the apparent disparity in web browsing between Android and iOS devices: it turns out that the kind of network connection could be a big factor.
This is kinda funny (because it’s kinda true).
If you make inaccessible iOS apps, you really only have yourself to blame.
There are also some handy tips here for getting to know VoiceOver.
An oldie but a goodie: this Bagcheck blog post contains a whole bunch of useful links to lists of mobile device testing suites.
Nik demos the neat interactions in Realmac’s latest piece of iOS software in this cute little video.
Some very interesting results from testing background image downloads contained within media queries or overridden with media queries: it turns out that, in iOS at least, the browser is getting smarter and smarter.
Brad is on a roll. He knocks it out of the park again, this time talking about the difference between supporting the huge range of mobile browsers out there compared to trying to optimise for them.
Well, this is very intriguing: it turns out that the infamous orientation/scale bug in Mobile Safari isn’t present in in-app browsers (UIWebView). Most odd.
An excellent point from Jonathan: both native apps and web apps require an internet connection …and both native apps and web apps can be made to work without an internet connection.
This might sound obvious, but the myth that “only native apps can work without an internet connection” is surprisingly widespread.
I’m loving Amber’s detailed write-up of the Update conference, especially her description of the panel discussion as me versus everyone else.
The world’s first mobile photography conference will take place in San Francisco on September 24th this year, featuring Dan Rubin, Jessica Zollman and more.
New Mobile Safari stuff in iOS5: position:fixed, overflow:scroll, new input type support, web workers, ECMAScript 5 | David B. Calhoun – Developer Blog
This looks like a beautiful way to present information, although it seems a real shame that the information is locked to just one class of device.
The plan to get Curiosity Rover onto the surface of Mars (ignore the cheesy sound effects in space).
A handy list of installed fonts on the iPhone and iPad.
Probably old news by now but Last.fm has been acquired by CBS, who I hope are not evil. The good news is that our favourite music site is staying in London. Rock on, FMers.
More about the microformats that can now be found on Last.fm.
