Is This Thing On? (Part 2)
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 heartbeat 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.

With that in mind, my goal with this post is to provide, perhaps, a starting point. Getting answers is critical, of course - but knowing the questions to ask is the first step.

Demystifying Apache Cordova and PhoneGap
If naming a thing is hard – getting used to a name change is even harder. "PhoneGap" is a recognizable name to most developers that have been involved in (or at least aware of) hybrid mobile application development. "Cordova", on the other hand – what's that? For me, it invokes images of the famous Spanish general, or Italian food, and sounds like a new sports car....or driving a sports car at high speeds to an Italian restaurant (always a win-win)...

Consuming Services - How to get useful data into your app
One of the first questions I routinely get from people who are starting with Icenium is, "How do I get useful data in to my application?" So, I would like to show how to consume a few different services. I will be using jQuery to consume the services.

Icenium LiveSync with the Samsung Galaxy S III
Icenium LiveSync enables you to easily deploy an app in development to one or more devices and see changes made--in real-time in both the integrated device simulator and across all connected devices--without having to recompile. In order for LiveSync to work, your development environment must be able to communicate with the device.
