Quick Tip: The Best Way to Run Internet Explorer on your Mac


While Mac users do have a handful of resources available, when viewing new web designs in Internet Explorer, the quickest solution is to use Wine, which can create a "wrapper" for the native PC Internet Explorer app! Even better, an app, called Wine Bottler makes adding the IE icon to your dock amazingly simple. I'll show you what to do in today's video quick tip!

Be sure to check out our sister-site, MacAppStorm for the full details on how to work with Wine and Wine Bottler!

In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to run and interact with your apps on physical and virtual devices. In the next part of the series, we will work through the process of running an app on a physical device and on the emulator. In this part, we'll look at getting our physical and virtual devices set up in Eclipse.Read More…

    How They Did It: Alice in VideolandAlice retina
    This summer I started building a modern retelling of "Alice in Wonderland", an interactive storybook web app by the name of Alice in Videoland. It ended up being featured in a sister article in Adobe Inspire as well as turning into an encore-winning presentation I gave at CSS Dev Conf 2013. The project was meant to be educational, a testing ground for new CSS animation techniques and desktop-to-tablet JavaScript. I keep Alice's source up on GitHub where anyone can examine my code, but sometimes it's nice to have someone go over the reasoning with you.Read More…

    How To Run Windows Software on OS XCrossover retina
    One of the major advantages that Macs have is that thanks to their Intel architecture and some clever coding from the boffins at Apple (and other companies), they can run applications designed for both OS X and Windows. Before you start jumping for joy, let me mention that you can't simply download a Windows program, install it onto your Mac then fire it up — there's a few technical issues to iron out first! In this tutorial, therefore, I will cover a couple of different (and easy) methods you can use to get your favourite Windows programs running on OS X. Before we start, though, it's worth mentioning that not all Windows programs run seamlessly. You've got to be prepared to accept a few bugs here and there and, especially in the case of games, a possible compromise in graphics performance. If you're still interested, then read on to find out how.Read More…
