In this recent webcast Ben Whaley and Alan Ho discussed the latest thinking in DevOps and how great DevOps helps tune performance, improve stability, and meet the new operational challenges of battery life, disparate OSs and versions, Apple & Google duopoly, and more presented by mobile apps. Check out the video and slides to learn how to operate your mobile apps so that they successfully engage users and build a 5-star reputation.
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.
Two weeks ago the Wall Street Journal ran the story ‘Sam's Club to Use Wi-Fi to Push TVs,’ highlighting internet-connected TVs which run popular social media or video applications. Last week WSJ highlighted how cable companies are getting their content on the iPad in response to excellent execution by Netflix and Hulu. This week, WSJ reports how businesses like law firm Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Bausch & Lomb, and Mercedes-Benz Financial are adopting the iPad as a business tool. APIs are all over the business press as early leaders emerge and competitive pressure to succeed in the...
