In my last blog post, Optimizing for Mobile? Bounded, Piggy-Backed Mobile Network Transmissions, I talked about a way to reduce battery consumption and optimize apps for mobile. The current implementation of the Apigee Mobile Analytics SDK (Android and iOS) follows a simplistic timed interval (60 seconds by default) for upload of secondary traffic (device metrics). This guarantees that the radio will be in the high state (turned on if it were off) at least once per minute. We will be revving our SDK to build in a bounded, piggy-backed strategy for secondary traffic to support the arguments in the previous blog post. iOS and Android Networking Interfaces On iOS, an initial implementation might provide  new category methods on NSURLConnection:...

Doing mobile app development? Need to optimize? One way to conserve battery is by piggybacking networking transmissions. To preserve battery life, the cellular radio in mobile devices gets put into a lower powered state after some inactivity, and then gets turned off after an additional period of inactivity. Once the radio is off, it takes some time for the radio to be turned on and for the radio to negotiate a new connection with a nearby cell tower. The current implementation of the Apigee SDK follows a simplistic timed interval (60 sec. by default) for upload of secondary traffic. This guarantees that the radio will be in the high state (turned on if it was off) at least once per minute. We will be revving our SDK to build in a bounded, piggybacked strategy for secondary traffic.... Read more...

By 2013, most major companies with a mature web presence have had a couple of iterations of their mobile apps out in the marketplace. As with any new and maturing channel (web, social, etc.), customers begin to look less for new features - and more for features optimized for their daily lives. Many companies that implemented their mobile app in 2012 or earlier simply ported the most compelling experiences from their website to mobile devices. The next logical phase of a mobile strategy is to build and improve user experience ...... Read more...

In this recent webcast, @landlessness and @kevinswiber discussed the 3-tier architecture of presentation, logic and data which power the mobile web. Behind the logic and presentation layers, the data tier is traditionally driven by relational databases. Today, with rich APIs available for developers to store application data, a traditional RDB is often not used by modern apps. This shift is causing the data tier to undergo a great amount of change and is driving change up through the logic and presentation tiers.... Read more...
