Mobile Development Digest #76

I do not want to say anything about Apple event past week. Friend of mine who was fan of Apple products ordered Samsung Note 8 after that. Personally, I will buy iPhone X later. It is still most powerful smartphone in the world and together with ML and new core it stays most interesting mobile gadget.

Mobile Development Digest #75

Only 6 days left to Apple special event. New devices (I hope) and release versions of XCode and iOS.

You know, I always complain about too many introductory and basic level articles. This is an effect of low entrance level to mobile development. Every developer can create successful app and not need deep understanding in development. Things change with new iOS and Android releases.

In iOS 11 new frameworks for AL and ML were introduced. Google made similar thing with their ARCore. However, it’s pretty hard to find advanced and expert level articles, which will give better understanding what stands behind easy-to-use frameworks.

In this issue, you’ll find several awesome articles about UI design in ML, core task of all AI benchmark, and others.

Mobile Development Digest #74

Finally, I have found strength in myself to continue work on the digest. I’m sorry for the long delay but otherwise digest will fall into copy-paste without real curating.

Just several weeks left till Apple presentation and changing of iOS 11 and XCode status to production. It’s a good time to check your apps for iOS 11 compatibility.

Adoption of iOS 10 is 91.8% due to Mixpanel and 87% due to Apple. iOS 11 drops support of several devices more, so “other” list will include more legacy devices. However, in statistics of my apps, I see significant difference from global Mixpanel and Apple stats. Almost 98% are iOS 10. So, check your stats and decide. As usual, I recommend drop support of old versions and use benefits of new.

Swift Evolution

  • validator. A tiny library for easily validating TextInputLayouts in Android
  • LoggingInterceptor. An OkHttp interceptor which pretty logs request and response data

LoopRocks

Couple months ago I wrote about an app that Dynamo is working on – FitnessCollection. Today morning I met this truck with ads of another app that Dynamo works with – LoopRocks. This made my day. I haven’t work on LoopRocks, but I’m proud of my colleagues work and that the results of the work are in demand.

Mobile Development Digest #72

May 1st is the Labor Day. Surprisingly it’s an official day off in Sweden. This broke my internal schedule and digest was not issued yesterday. Sorry for that.

This digest includes (but not limited to) huge, free and fresh collections of videos from recent conferences (seems like April was most popular month for dev conferences ever). Also, you’ll get an update on Swift evolution, new iOS and Android frameworks. I received several articles from readers that worth to read.

Thanks a lot for all your responses to WWDC 2017 predictions and wish list survey. It is still far away from finish and if you had not participated yet, please do now.

Mobile Development Digest #71

Biggest newsmaker last week was F8 event. Usually Facebook focused on web technologies, but this time major updates came from AR/VR field. It is worth to read Facebook Developers news blog to understand what FB proposed this year. Here is all videos from the conference.

I really appreciate all the people who spent some time on filling WWDC 2017 predictions questionnaire. It is far away from the state I can say – I have enough answers, so, if you have not participated yet, please do it now.
