    Device Testing is here, TA-DA!

  • We all know how important accurate device profiles are, and this is proven by the success DeviceAtlas has already had in less than 4 month. In the initial months we have focused on consolidating existing "database silos" and we are still doing that, but we want to do more now and introduce real-time browser testing with TA-DA.

    WebKit by any other name… or How I found a use for JavaScript

  • I’ve been doing a great deal of thinking lately about JavaScript/ECMAScript and the mobile web. What I’ve been struggling with is the need or value for it when it comes to sites which are organically created for mobile. Sure there’s a need to support JavaScript as fully as possible for providing a ‘full web’ experience and managing existing content, but when it comes to designing for the mobile context, is there really value for it?

    Secret DeviceAtlas feature: Analytics

  • We always thought of DeviceAtlas as being more about device 'intelligence' than merely device 'data'. Being able to see and interpret patterns in the data helps developers make really smart design decisions, rather than just react, at run-time, to whatever turns up at their site. So we've been putting a lot of effort into the analytics features of the platform. Currently we're trying out one- and two-dimensional analysis of device model populations.
