iOS9 giveth and it taketh away

This iOS9 Safari media query bug sounds like it’s really annoying a lot of people. If you work on sites with a large iOS user population then it’s probably worth being aware of it before you run into it. On the flipside, it looks like they fixed this really annoying iOS 8.x photo upload issue. Tags: iOS, Apple

Google launches cloud-based tools for iPhone developers

Google launches cloud-based tools for iPhone developers and they're beautiful – that last bit is from the article title, not me. Interestingly this really feels like a move designed to counter/compete with Microsoft’s Azure Mobile Services, which look excellent (not necessarily the development of the services, but opening them up to iOS developers).

Anatomy of a Native Feeling HTML5 iOS App

Mobile Development titbits–jQuery Mobile, Appcelerator, and iOS boilerplate

This week has been less than satisfying from a developer’s point of view, and I’ve found myself stuck hanging out with my good buddies Outlook, Word and Excel a lot more than I’d have liked However despite that I’ve still managed to pick up a few useful bits of mobile development information. Allow me to share, if you will.   jQuery mobile – resizing to landscape mode doesn’t work properly. Basically when rotating the device, the windows new size wasn’t quite correct.
