iPhone 5s and iOS 7 Review

Uncategorized
Not only one iPhone but two were released this past month and along with those phones came the iOS 7 update, the first major overhaul since the iPhone's birth. I have heard many mixed reviews about the new iPhone as well and the update and I am here to write a few pros and cons to both. I did end up updating my iPhone 5 to the iOS 7 operating system and had a few mixed reviews myself. First of all, the design was a basic flat parallax design and looked very nice.

Easy Android XML changes for many controls

Building a Mobile App

Uncategorized
Making an appealing and successful mobile application is often times much more difficult than people might expect. Making the application on a good budget (and sticking to it) is usually harder still. Many times people want their apps made, but don’t have a full understanding of the process, or where common snags will cut into your time and wallet. My goal is going to be to write a series of posts to help address issues, and to give tips on how to best be prepared and what to expect from having a mobile application developed. One of the things I would like to cover is: Mobile Design: It is extremely critical to have a great looking, and intuitive design for your mobile application. A great design encompasses not only the…
