I can not say that MapPocket is a wild success, but lately we enjoyed a steady grow of revenue. I should confess that watching a trend line of revenue going undisputably up does make you feel a little bit proud.
If you develop for iOS, you probably read about "frictions" between Apple and DropBox (if not, just Google DropBox API reject). Even if you are not using DropBox, you may want to pay attention to this....
Lately I have started to make Drupal programming a little bit less tedious by embracing OO side of PHP. Almost immidiatelly I start wondering how exactly class autoload works in Drupal. It took me a couple hours to figure out, but now I DO know.
There is a number of different approaches in addressing website's mobile compatibility. They differ by amount of development efforts involved and, subsequently, command different price ranges. Below, I am briefly outlining 3 ways of mobile implementations:
Amazingly enough, I was not able to find straightforward instructions on how to build both FULL and LITE versions of the same iOS app with XCode 4.x. It did not took much time to figure out. Still, this blog post may save you some grief.

This is one of these things that makes you think: how come that it was not done like this from the day one? I guess either Flickr or Colorbox module could have done it (though it probably makes more sense for Flickr to do it).
