    Why Mobile Developers Should Care About Deep Linking

    It is hard to believe that as huge and fast growing as the native mobile apps market is, it is still in a pre-page rank phase. Mobile developers, marketers and business owners don’t have the ecosystem to collect advanced performance data and users can’t discover content and services efficiently. Mobile deep linking is a methodology that can help solve this problem. Reducing conversion friction deep linking will be a turning point in increasing mobile revenues.

    Is This Thing On? (Part 2)

    May 09, 2013 Share
    In our last post we looked very briefly at the APIs currently available to help detect connectivity state in mobile/web apps. Our conclusion? Browser APIs have a long way to go in this area! Nevertheless, when used together – and in tandem with a hearbeat check that attempts to talk to a remote endpoint – these tools can be quite useful. But what's the best way to use them 'together'? At the end of part 1, I said that I think a state machine abstraction would work well to manage all of this…but you might be wondering, "What's a state machine?". Before I show you the what and how of finite state machines, I think it's important for us to understand the why of state machines. So, grab some popcorn and prepare to laugh (and hopefully commiserate) as I walk you through what it could look like to solve the connectivity problem without a proper state machine.
