Been looking at bits of the forum I don't normally visit but can't find any section for Mobile Apps development - as about to go down that route it would be nice to have a chance to share the pain !

Hi Johnhh,

So far, most of the discussion has been in the Smartphone, Wireless, and Mobile Technologies forum, or a specific forum if it's a browser issue, or programing forum.

I wonder if a dedicated forum might help focus a little more.

What topics do you think we might cover in a Mobile Technologies Forum?

Hi Engine

I think it has become a massive topic - as the skills required are somewhat different than web pages. I have been "investigating" for some weeks now and suprised at the depth and range of the topic.

Marketing, programming the different Operating Systems user interface, use of third party compliers and development tools such as Titanium ( which was actually the prompt to mke the post as it seems buggy ), interface into backend servers.

For example at the moment I am looking at -

Do you use the latest Operating System versions or the version that is on most phones, i.e is everything backward compatiable for a particular operating system.

Is is better to have the database ( if needed ) on the phone rather than an external server ? If so what is the practical limit on size ?

What are the overheads in using javascript compared with PHP ?

What are the operating systems available and on whose phones do they run - guess that should have been the first question !

I am not talking about just the dreaded iphones here - but the creation of applications across a range of operating systems.

Currently also working on/learning Google Maps V3 which seems to be designed for mobile apps.

I think this is a great idea.

Different operating systems (Symbian, Android, iPhone/iOS, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, etc.) and their methodologies...

Development tools, tips, etc. from (hopefully) people with experience. Kind of an offshoot of the current development forums.

That's just off the top of my head...
