Web Development on Windows 7 - Essential Applications

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been asked for specific information on how I work. Having a solid work environment can go a long way in increasing your efficiency and help you stay organized, so today we’ll take a look at the setup of my desktop computer.

The majority of my web design and development work is done on a 64-bit Windows 7 desktop. For more serious programming projects (pretty much any language other than PHP, HTML or CSS), I do switch over to Ubuntu in VMware Workstation, but nearly all of my web design client work is done in Windows. From my experience so far, Windows 7 has been absolutely stellar for web development – it’s easy to use, fast and just plain works.

Using the Right Software

The key to working in any OS is using the right tools to make your work process as painless and efficient as possible. Thankfully for Windows users, there are plenty of great tools available for web design and development.

Notepad++

This is probably the best text editor available on Windows and best of all, it’s completely open source. Notepad++ supports custom styles, recognizes a multitude of different programming languages and supports third-party plugins. For my setup, I use a slightly modified Ruby Blue style/theme and the following plugins:

  • Explorer – Adds a file browser in a pane to the left or right of your editing screen, giving you quick access to your project files

  • Zen-Coding (Python-based) – If you don’t know what Zen Coding is, just watch the video. It will change the way you write web pages!

There are a few more installed but these are the two I really can’t live without. I’m still new to Zen Coding but so far it’s been an incredible experience, I highly recommend it!…Read more:

Top Mobile Apps for Business Users

Mobile Business Apps
There are now more than 175,000 mobile apps available across the three leading smartphone platforms: iPhone, Blackberry, and Android. With all of those apps, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the good ones, especially for business users.

I’ve picked eight apps across a handful of categories that I consider the top mobile business apps for iPhone, Blackberry, and Android smartphones. (Note: Some of these apps are also available for Palm and Windows Mobile.)

Productivity

Evernote (iPhone/Blackberry/Android | free/premium option)
This is the Swiss Army knife of note taking. Evernote allows you to snap a photo, take a screenshot, type in text, or speak your note to capture information on the go. And once you’ve captured it, Evernote helps you organize and find it by making all of the information in your photos or notes searchable. For example, if you take a photo of a book as a reminder that you want to buy it later, Evernote will make all of the text on the book cover searchable. It’s pretty neat to see it in action.

Documents to Go (iPhone/Blackberry/Android | free/premium option)
Documents To Go is an all-in-one application with support for Microsoft Office, PDF, Apple iWork, and other files. So if someone e-mails you a PowerPoint presentation, you can view and edit the file on your mobile device. I have used it several times in meetings when I forgot to bring a printed copy of a file. I’ve also used it to prep for a presentation while on a plane; i is much easier to whip out my Blackberry than my laptop.

Travel

TripIt (iPhone, Blackberry, Android | free/premium option)
I have been using the TripIt Web site for a couple of years; it is a great way to share your travel plans with friends. TripIt’s mobile app is a nice complement to the Web site and allows you to perform most of the main functions while on the go.

My favorite feature of TripIt is the ability to see which of my friends or colleagues are traveling to the same city as I am at the same time. I also like the ability to retrieve all of my travel information such as flight times or hotel reservations from the TripIt app rather than sifting through my inbox for the various confirmation e-mails I received from the airline or hotel.

FlightTrack (iPhone, Android | $4.99)
If you travel often for business, you want to spend as little time at the airport as possible. It’s much better to wait out a flight delay from home than find out after you’ve arrived at the airport.…Read more:

Top 10 Android Web Development Apps

Android web apps
As an avid Android device user with both an Android tablet and phone, of course I am always looking for apps that would be of use to web developers. After a bit of searching I was able to find apps for just about every aspect of web development, from the web server itself to an FTP client to move the files, to a source code viewer that let's you view the source code on any web page, analytics tools to allow you to analyze your website, to custom apps for the major CMSes WordPress, Drupal and Joomla!.

Using the Android web development apps I found, I was able to create a web page from scratch, test it on a web server that is running on my Android device from anywhere on my local network, move the file over to my external web host using an FTP app so it's live on the web, SSH to my external web server to work with the file live, and the page was ready for the masses, able to be viewed by anyone with an internet connection. My inner geek was smiling!

Since I have several sites which run on the Joomla! and Drupal CMSes, I can now potentially create content and publish that content directly from my Android device using the Joomla and Drupal Android apps.

While the likelyhood that I would need to be able to create content or handle a "web emergency" while I was out on the go is not likely for me personally, I could easily see a blogger writing their latest work while actually on the scene of an event, and then using one of the tools we will discuss here, they would be able to instantly publish the blog to their website, complete with images. Yes, you could actually update your website while you're sitting on the beach enjoying the breeze, or more likely, while you are on the scene of some major event, be it a trade conference or accident scene.

Let's get started, and take a look at some Android web development apps.

AndFTP

AndFTP is an FTP client app that allows you to transfer files to your web server via not only FTP, but also via SFTP, SCP and FTPS protocols. You can set up several different FTP servers using AndFTP, and it also comes with a device file browser and a FTP file browser (which means you can see the files both on your Android device as well as the remote server). Like a typical FTP client, you are able to rename, delete, copy, set permissions and create folders.…Read more:

30 Best Android Applications This Week

Best Android Apps
After a missed week last week, this week is a bumper 30 Best post for new Android apps, covering the last fortnight.

The list doesn't include games, as they get their own separate post: this week's selection included Android titles like Ayakashi: Ghost Guild, Beach Buggy Blitz, Arsenal Fantasy Manager 2013 and Contract Killer 2.

iOS apps get their own separate post too: you can find that here. For now, here's the pick of the Google Play store from the last two weeks.

Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

In good time for Halloween, this book-app from Loud Crow Interactive sees Charlie Brown and his Peanuts friends waiting for the Great Pumpkin, with lots of interactivity, voices and music from a 1966 TV special, and a Peanuts avatar creator to help children make their own characters.

Dragon Mobile Assistant (Beta)

I'll get the disappointing news out of the way first: this doesn't appear to be available in the UK yet. It's Nuance's new conversational assistant software for Android devices, which is in beta for devices running the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean variants. It has you making calls, sending texts, updating social networks, using maps, reserving restaurants and other tasks by chatting.

Musicovery Player

Musicovery is one of a crop of apps encouraging people to play music by their mood, picking songs from their own collections, but also making its own recommendations for tracks that they don't own already.
Fontly

One for designers and the design-conscious, this: an app to "capture, map, and explore the world of vintage typography", with a map-based guide to interesting signs and typography in the real world. You're encouraged to upload and tag your own examples too.

PerfMon - Performance Monitor

There's a buzz around the PerfMon utility, which is a floating performance monitor tool that hovers over an app that you're using, showing how your device…Read more:

Microsoft Unveils the Surface, Its First Tablet

Windows 8 Tablet
How would you like to move into a stunning mansion on a bluff overlooking the sea — in Somalia? Or would you like the chance to own a new Ferrari — that has to be refueled every three miles? Would you take a job that pays $1 million a year — cutting football fields with toenail clippers?

That’s the sort of choice Microsoft is asking you to make with the spectacularly designed, wildly controversial Surface tablet.

Now, for the very first tablet it has ever manufactured (in fact, its very first computer), Microsoft could have just made another iPad ripoff. But it aimed much higher. It wanted to build a tablet that’s just as good at creating work as it is at organizing it.

On the hardware front, Microsoft has succeeded brilliantly. Read the specs and try not to drool on your keyboard.

The Surface shares some measurements with the full-size iPad (1.5 pounds, 0.4 inches thick). But at 10.8 by 6.7 inches, it’s a wider, thinner rectangle, a better fit for movie playback. It has stereo speakers instead of mono. Both front and back video cameras are 720p high definition.

It has ports and jacks that iPad owners can only dream about: a memory-card slot to expand the storage, a video output jack and a USB 2.0 jack. You can connect almost any USB device: keyboard, mouse, flash drive, speakers, hard drive and so on.

Each Surface model has double the storage of the same-price iPad. For example, the $500 Surface offers 32 gigabytes; the 64-gig Surface is $600.

There are some disappointments on the spec sheet. The battery life is advertised as eight to 10 hours…Read more:

iPad Mini: Apple Launches Smaller Tablet

iPad Mini
Apple unveils mini iPad tablet with prices starting at $329 (£269 in the UK) to compete with Amazon and Google's tablets

Apple made its play to dominate the fast-growing tablet market on Tuesday by unveiling an "iPad mini" - a new tablet half the size of its existing iPad - to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire.

But the price may prove a barrier for potential buyers considering it against its rivals: the iPad mini will start at $329 (£269 in the UK), against $159 for the cheapest Kindle Fire and $249 for the Nexus 7.

Even so, Apple chief executive Tim Cook pointed to the momentum that Apple has built up in the tablet market, saying that two weeks ago the company had sold its 100 millionth iPad - "unprecedented for a new product in this category," he said. The first iPad went on sale in April 2010.

"Others have tried to make tablets smaller than the iPad and they have failed miserably," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, who introduced the iPad mini in San Jose, USA.

The new iPad mini, which can be held in one hand, has a 7.9 inch (20cm) display, weighs in at 0.68 pounds (0.3kg) and is 7.2mm (0.3 inches) thick, a quarter thinner than the new fourth generation iPad which was launched at the same event.

Apple has had about 70% of the entire tablet market up to now, but the launch in the summer of Google's 7in Nexus 7 tablet - estimated to have sold around a million in three months - and of the Kindle Fire, launched in the US in October 2011, has pointed to huge potential in the market.

While PC sales have been stuttering and even shrinking by double-digit amounts in the US, those of tablets have rocketed since Apple introduced the iPad, followed by a number of rivals using Google's Android mobile software.

Now Apple is trying to dominate the whole space as it did with the iPod in the digital music player market, where its top-end iPod was broadened to the iPod mini and nano.

A research group is forecasting that sales of smaller tablets will double this year. IHS iSuppli expects about 34m smaller tablets – with screens …Read more:

15 Gorgeous Mobile UI Designs For Your Inspiration


Just like learning to code, the best way to improve as a designer is to learn by doing. Still, that’s not to say that admiring and even copying (aka practicing) great work can’t do wonders. More than anything, seeing what other designers have done in the past can save you some serious time, because design has a history and everyone should learn from what works and what doesn’t.

And so, we’ve gathered this list of 15 gorgeous user interfaces (UIs) for your design inspiration. Note that designing a UI and evolving that into the perfect user experience (UX) are completely different things, but all fit together as a complete product.

1. 76 Synthesizer:

This is skeuomorphic design at its best, as the simulated textures actually help add clarity to how the app should be used. This serves in stark contrast to much of Apple’s skeuomorphic work, which generally serves as decoration and can end up being more distracting than anything else.

2. Camera Genius:

Once again, the realistic elements in this app feel useful and subtle. The clear visual hierarchy makes this UI look incredibly smooth and easy to use.

3. Hype Peak:

This super clean and engaging mobile UI compliments its Web counterpart perfectly.

4. FL Studio Mobile:

A completely rethought take on FL Studio’s UI for iOS, this UI does…Read more:

The iPhone Tracking Technology In Apple's iOS 6


iOS 6 development
Apple consumers are a dedicated bunch, but how do they feel about advertisers tracking their every move while using their beloved iPhones and iPads?

Although Apple allows users to limit ad tracking within its new operating system, iOS 6 — here's an easy how-to — we still don't know a lot about what advertisers can see and do with the new Identifier for Advertisers (IFA or IDFA)

Here's a guide to everything that's currently known about IFA.

Bye Bye UDID

·        Prior to iOS 6, Apple products used Unique Device Identifiers (UDID) to allow advertisers to track users' habits and preferences. Basically, apps would sell UDIDs to advertisers.

·        UDID was reliant on the actual hardware, which means that it was always attached to a certain device and couldn't be limited, changed, or reset.

·        This was particularly problematic if UDIDs were get leaked. Hacker group Antisec publicly released 1,000,001 UDIDs in September 2012. In spite of rumors that the UDIDs were found on an FBI computer, app publisher Blue Toad was actually responsible for the breach.

·        Since UDIDs are attached to hardware, nothing could be done to seal the breach. Blue Toad apologized for being hacked, but it refused to notify affected users.

·        After Congress raised privacy concerns about advertisers using UDIDs without permission, Apple banned developers from accessing them in March. Those who didn't listen were kicked out of the app store.

What's an IFA?

·        With UDID basically frowned upon by Apple, there was a period of months in which tracking mostly stopped on the iPhone and iPad. Then Apple introduced IFA with the iOS6. …Read more:

Microsoft Office coming to Android and Apple devices in early 2013


We've known for months that Microsoft was bringing a version of Microsoft Office 2013 to Android tablets and Apple's iPad family. Now, according to the Czech tech news site, IHNED, Microsoft product manager Petr Bobek has said that Microsoft is planning to release native iOS and Android versions of Office 2013 in the first quarter of 2013

Bobek, a Microsoft Office portfolio manager in the Czech Republic, said that these new versions of Office will be available to larger companies and Microsoft partners In December 2012. Small-office/home-office (SOHO) and household users will have to wait until at least February. The online version of Office 365 edition for mobile devices and tablets will appear in early 2013.

In an e-mail, the author of the INHED story clarified that the release would be after March 2013. "We had a slight miscommunication with the MS guys and the timeline for Office for iOS and Android is not a March release, but release sometime after March."

Officially, the only thing Microsoft had to say at first was that "As we shared previously, Office Mobile will work across Windows Phones, Android phones and iOS, and we have nothing additional to announce today about retail availability of the new Office."

Later the same day, Microsoft's head of corporate communications, Frank X. Shaw, denied the whole story. Shaw tweeted, "The information shared by our Czech Republic subsidiary is not accurate. We have nothing further to share."

No matter when Microsoft delivers the Android and iOS goods, Microsoft's support of any version of Office on a non-Windows smartphone or tablet strikes me as an odd move.…Read more:

Mobile Web Application Development Platforms will Generate USD 2.6 Billion by 2015


In a report by Smith’s Point Analytics, the research firm says HTML5 will disrupt the mobile application market and mobile web application platform vendors are well positioned to seize the opportunity. Smith’s Point Analytics estimates that mobile web application platforms will generate almost $2.6B in service revenue by 2015. These platforms, which enable web developers to create mobile applications using HTML5 and JavaScript, could grow revenues at a 114% CAGR from 2010 to 2015.

The VC community is taking note of this emerging opportunity and has risked over $35 million financing multiple vendors to develop their offerings and business models. “Vendors are taking different approaches to serve web developers by creating diverse architecture to streamline application development. The ability to sell developers on the right approach will be paramount to success,” said Peter Crocker Founder and Principal analyst at Smith’s Point Analytics.

Three primary drivers will propel the growth of mobile web applications:

1)      The increased performance of web applications enabled by HTML5 and innovative development architectures that put web app functionality on par with native applications.

2)      The large pool of web developers available to leverage their skills and new tools to create a growing number of rich mobile web applications.

3)      The ability of web applications to run across multiple mobile operating systems.

Among other disruptions, the application distribution model will change drastically as robust applications will be ncreasingly…Read more:

Mobile App Help Drive Business Success


Enterprises are focusing more attention on mobile applications to drive customer engagement, a survey finds.

Mobile applications are increasingly viewed as a business-differentiation tool to increase customer engagement, reinforce brand value and provide better customer service, and delivering a high-quality user experience and improving mobile app performance are top business priorities, according to the most recent annual survey of global enterprises by mobile application platform provider Kony Solutions in conjunction with MGI Research.

The results indicated many companies are still in the early phases of adoption and are taking a practical approach to new technologies and standards, with enhanced application performance (72 percent) and multiplatform mobile application support from a single code base (67 percent) weighing in as top requirements. These took precedence over managing bring your own device (BYOD) (46 percent) and greater use of HTML5 (26 percent).

The State of Mobile Apps survey also explored 2012 mobile budget priorities, finding that 48 percent of respondents plan to increase budgets for multiplatform development tools over the next 12 months. More than 200 survey respondents also reported their top technical concerns are support for open standards and multiplatform mobile app support--especially for hybrid apps, which are expected to be the biggest gainers in the next 12 months over native or HTML5 apps.

"From increased attention to the user experience and planning bigger investments in multichannel offerings, this report demonstrates that more organizations are adopting a mobile first mindset. It also confirms something our customers have long known--mobile is a key driver of business success and an essential…Read more:

So, basically, what we've tried to put into the gallery below is what we believe are the apps that a widest range of users might find most useful. Enjoy!

iPad 3: the must-have apps

iPhone 5: Apple CEO pledges to improve new map app


Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized on Friday for the company's error-ridden new mobile mapping service and pledged to improve the application installed on tens of millions of smartphones. In an unusual mea culpa, he invited frustrated consumers to turn to the competition.

Cook said Apple "fell short" of its own expectations.

"Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working nonstop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard," he said in a letter posted online.

Apple released an update to its iPhone and iPad operating system last week that replaced Google Maps with Apple's own map application. But users quickly complained that the new software offered fewer details, lacked public transit directions and misplaced landmarks, among other problems.

People have been flocking to social media to complain and make fun of the app's glitches, which include judging landscape features by their names. The hulking Madison Square Garden arena in New York, for instance, shows up as green park space because of the word "garden."

Until the software is improved, Cook recommended that people use competing map applications to get around - a rare move for the world's most valuable company, which prides itself on producing industry-leading gadgets that easily surpass rivals.

Apple has made missteps in the past - even under founder and CEO Steve Jobs, whose dogged perfectionism was legendary.

"I think they are clearing the air and, more importantly, clarifying why they had to do their own maps," said Tim Bajarin, a Creative Strategies analyst who's followed Apple for more than three decades.

He recalled an infamous problem with the iPhone 4's antenna that interfered with reception when people covered a certain spot with a bare hand. Jobs apologized, though he denied there was an antenna problem that needed fixing. Apple quickly recovered.…Read more:

Free and Best Mobile Applications - A Mobile Apps Review


Ever since the smartphones came to being, it has given rise to what is now known as the app economy. So how does this work? Smartphones are now the new interface for people to communicate, work and collaborate. By offering mobile apps that can be downloaded on to these interfaces, the developers offer more utility for the smartphone users. In return, the developers either get a new 'estate' to display ads and monetize or they can simply make money by selling the apps at a cost.

The most popular interface that has given a spurt to the mobile app economy is the iPhone. The iPhone mobile app Store is one of the fledging ecosystems of app developers and iPhone users that have become very popular. This has now become a vicious cycle whereby the increasing success of mobile apps in the App Store has given rise to more and more developers’ pluging into the fray thus increasing supply while reducing the overall quality of apps.

So, which are those best mobile apps that people actually find useful on their iPhones? Since there are potentially several thousands of these apps, they can be rather studied by the categories they belong to. According to a recent study of the best mobile apps, here are the results

1. News: 11

2. Reference: 10.7

3. Weather: 10.5

4. Books: 10.0

5. Lifestyle: 8

Top 10 Free Restaurant Apps for Finding Food and Drink Deals


The clocks have sprung forward, and it's time to start your spring cleaning. But don't stop with sweeping up the dustbunnies from under the furniture. Consider a digital spring cleaning, too. Purge your unused smartphone apps (I found a Japanese drumming app installed on my iPod touch ... WTH?) and free up space for new ones that could potentially also save you money — particularly if you're a foodie or night owl who likes to go out. Declutter your phone, and take a look at our list of the top 10 apps for finding restaurant coupons and deals in your locale. The best news? They're all free! Armed with these apps, you'll be able to afford to eat out without heating up cans of beans for breakfast the next day!

1. Blackboard Eats
Available for Los Angeles, New York, San Franscisco, and Chicago residents, Blackboard Eats (or BBE) helps you find local restaurants and usually scores you between 10% and 30% off your meal. You can read reviews of the restaurant, view available deals, and purchase deals through the app. You'll receive a BBE passcode by email, which you'll use to make your reservations, whether online, by phone, or in person. The best bit? The app is run by former staff members of Gourmet magazine, so the focus is on delicious deals at high-caliber restaurants.

2. Scoutmob
The recently-updated Scoutmob app is similar to BlackBoard Eats, although it services a vast number of cities including Austin, Boston, Washington DC, and more. Just download the app and browse participating restaurants who offer 10% to 50% off. You'll enjoy savings at cafes, dessert shops, cantinas, bars, and everywhere in between. Unlike BBE though, you need to actually be at the location to access the deal, which you show your server to activate. There are also "Return Perk" deals for customers who return to the same location more than once, and you can learn of any upcoming events in your area, such as film screenings, pub quizzes, and happy hours.

3. Foursquare
There are a lot of ways to use the well-known Foursquare app. Primarily, it lets you "check in" to restaurants in your area via your device's location services. Once you've checked in you occasionally "unlock" coupons for specific merchants. The savings with this app are usually modest, but sometimes you do get a pretty good deal, like a free entree or dessert. By checking in on Foursquare you allow…Read more:

iPhone Development On Windows - 7 Options


Some time ago I decided to list a couple of options available for iPhone development on Windows and iPad development on Windows. Now, months later this is still something that has been brought up recently. So I have decided to expand the list, and include some of the other solutions that have cropped up since the original posting, and some upcoming that look interesting.  Please note, that there is no official solution for developing for the iPhone SDK on Windows (and it’s doubtful there ever will be).

At this point you will need to compile your app on the official iPhone SDK running on Mac OS X if your goal is to get your app in to Apple’s iPhone app store, use Flash’s iPhone packager, the Airplay SDK, or send someone else your code for compilation.  Now, I know there is the obvious “hackintosh” solution, but I won’t get into that, not only is it possibly illegal, but I’ve seen someone try it… and it was a major continuous hassle — every update of the OS and SDK cost them valuable hours, when they could  just get a sub-$700 Mac Mini and avoid all hassles.

That being said there are ways to develop your iPhone app in windows.  Let me repeat that there is no real iOS SDK Windows edition — and most certainly not any official options despite what the marketing material of some vendors might tell you. If you see a vendor posting false information suggesting their solution is an official Windows iPhone developer SDK then…Read more:
