You've been thrown on your company's app project. Now what? Where do you start? Wha's all this gibberish about platforms, devices, resolutions, and density? How do you find a good team to work with? How do you not sound like a tool when you talk with them?
Relax. This book has you covered. With years of design and development experience behind me, I wrote a book to help clients and corporate employees understand mobile apps. From the vague to the specific, this book explains:
Why build a mobile app: Get advice, direction, opinions, and industry research so you can guide your company (or at least occupy an informed seat at the table).
Understanding apps: Learn the nuts and bolts of different platforms (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Symbian) and HTML5. Learn about distribution, resolution, and specifics on the largest platforms.
Getting your app built: Know what they cost, how to find and review a firm, what the build process is like, and see use cases.
Case Studies: Real world examples and the advice clients would pass on to other people starting an app project.
Whether you are building for iOS for iPad, iPhone and iPod, Android for mobile and tablet, HTM5--or all three, this book has the information you will need. Even if you are considering BlackBerry, Windows Phone or Symbian (Nokia) development you will be able to show up to meetings with an informed stance.
