Wiki on Map: Built with Mobincube, OpenStreetMaps, Wikipedia and Moback


wiki

Just 2 months ago we launched a brand new feature in Mobincube that allows you to add your own functionalities using HTML/JavaScript in local mode. Basically you can add your own HTML modules into your app and let them communicate with other parts the same app. For example, from your own module, you can invoke actions to access some other screens of your app, get some values from the device (location, os version, language, etc.), etc.

This new feature is great for developing advanced apps, like games, animations, user interaction, calculators, advanced forms, etc. But you don’t necessarilly need to display stuff, you can just use HTML modules to add points of decissions in your app, like open one menu or another depending on the language that the user has set in his device.

5 best practices for designing amazing apps

Best practice for designing amazing apps

Design is everything. Take shoes as an example. Can you tell where design as you know it ends and where engineering of sole, flexibility or breathability begins? Or smartphones. Are materials, buttons, size of the screen or OS, part of the design or engineering? To be honest, you can’t draw an exact line, both of them fold into one another. Same goes for mobile applications.

While designing your app, you should pay as much attention to its content or features as to its design. Users won’t use a beautiful app that is not useful, and the greatest user experience won’t make up for poor features.

How to make a great prototype – secret weapon of app building.

Do you know the story of Pulse app? It is a newsfeed reader that became one of the 50 apps in Apple’s App Store Hall of Fame. The Pulse case is famous not because it was a university project that became a successful business, but because of the story of its amazingly user-friendly interface.

Two students of d.school (design school based at Stanford University), Ankit Gupta and Akshay Kothari, had enrolled in the LaunchPad class, where they were assigned a task to start a company from scratch and incorporate it within 10 weeks.
