Screencast: Nexus One vs. HTC Evo

Both phones are great for Flash development but I prefer the larger, more responsive screen of the HTC EVO over the Nexus One. Unfortunately the Nexus One is the only phone out right now with Android 2.2 running so if you want to use some of the new Camera features in Air for Android you will have to use a Nexus One.

    Browser Testing in the Cloud ReduxBrowser testing cloud redux retina preview
    I've written quite a bit about browser testing solutions trying to help identify techniques and tools that make cross-browser development easier. My last article on the subject covered how to use BrowserStack to test any number of browsers all from one central tool; your own browser. I was on a Windows PC back then so testing multiple browsers was a bit easier and testing tools were mainly complementary to my work. Now that I'm on OS X, the need for tools to round out my testing strategies is even more important, specifically because of the lack of Internet Explorer on the OS. I'm a bit of a stickler for what I install on my computers and I prefer online tools when available. I'm also always on the hunt for new tools that make cross-browser testing easier and decided to give CrossBrowserTesting.com a run. I'll go over some of the key features of the service and how to leverage it to improve your testing capabilities.Read More…
