Latin America has been proving to be a fertile ground for mobile development, and such growth has been drawing attention and inducing several changes in the mobile app development scenario.
What are the reasons behind that and what does the future hold for LATAM? Continue Reading
We all know Halloween, sometimes, comes down to this: tricks or treats.
What about getting in the mood for it and, instead of a treat, we offer you some apps for the perfect prank?
On October 5th, the latest version of Android, Marshmallow (6.0) — aka. Android M — began its rollout for Nexus 5, 6, 7, 9, and Nexus Player. Considering that many blogs and websites have already discussed the new features Android M presents, we would like to take a different approach to this topic.

When developing a mobile or web application, it is often necessary to build a web server that will integrate with your product. This part is often called the backend and, in simple words, it is the running piece of software that stays remote to all users – the center where the database is located and the place where the clients (iOS apps, for example) retrieve data from.
Although invisible from the user perspective, the backend is fundamental for any data-driven application – it is the component that users usually don’t directly interact with but, if it ever goes down, it might cause all of your client apps to stop working. The backend has a couple of other more famous nicknames: “the server” or – when it’s remotely located – “the cloud“.
Brazil and India – besides Russia, China and South Africa – are part of the BRICS economic group, and both countries are already set as powerful nations, despite all their internal flaws and problems. In the mobile app development sector, there’s room for everyone, but we also understand that the outsourcing world is quickly changing. These are our insights about two major players on remote development work.
Some time ago, we stumbled with this small story about an app that got some unforeseen problems:
“There was nothing different in that Friday. The application was running fine, apparently, so the company called it a day and left for the weekend. Little the developers knew that, as Monday came upon them, more than 4000 crashes happened during those two days!”
This “small” accident was just for illustrating why crash and event trackers are mandatory (true story, actually).
But what is an event and/or a crash tracker?
Xcode’s Interface Builder got some fine tuning at the last WWDC event. “Who cares?”, some might say. Well, Ben Sandofsky has reasons to believe that now is the time for using IB. Our co-workers discussed about it and we decided to put all that into a nice blogpost, to explain a little why Interface Builder can be good (or not).
Finding software developers isn’t trivial at all: sometimes, all you need is some directions from well-known sources. When we’re looking for great projects to collaborate, it’s the same thing. Throughout the last years, we’ve put together a list of directories that might ease the process of finding partners, which we wish had appeared in our research a long time ago:
