Welcome,

My name is Stephen and currently an IT Professional doing administration and support, however I've always had a deep passion for software development. I've started mobile application development when I got my first Android phone in October 09. This blog catalogues all my progress with creating mobile apps for not only Android, but eventually iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy.

Giz Explains: All The Smartphone Mobile App Stores

Gizmodo posted a interesting article today regarding the different mobile app stores. One thing I took immediate notice to is the price differences to get started and submit apps for developers. Google's Android seems to be the way to go. However iPhone isn't half bad either, and add that huge user base into account. Blackberry is way out of the starter budget, Windows Mobile could work, but it's user base is dieing due to the other options available now. Nokia makes great phones, I want the N97, but for the US they are overpriced because you have to buy them unlocked via the internet and I can't judge Palm because there's no info.

Reading chapter 5 now in my iPhone book: Using iUI for web apps, but it's been a crazy busy few days.
