Where to Find Great Mobile Design Inspiration They say you should never judge a book by its cover: sage advice from back in the day. But now, mobile apps are often judged by their icons and interfaces; all it takes to make a bad impression is a dated design, no matter how useful or well-coded your app is. Good design takes time, and sometimes, you need a little outside help coming up with ideas.

Cross Browser Testing. Pick an OS - Pick a Browser - Test website DesignShare Home SMS Education: Poll Everywhere Is Making the Mobile Pop Quiz More Affordable Over 40% of students text during class and 80% say they've never been caught. That sounds like a bit of a quandary for teachers, but not for much longer: Teachers can now hijack students' cell phones for educational purposes, including testing, homework assignments, quizzes, and more. Poll Everywhere, which specializes in instant audience feedback via text messaging, and Mobile Messenger, a technology solutions group that partners with carriers, have partnered to develop affordable, educational SMS programs. As we reported last April, new studies and pilot projects show smartphones can actually make kids smarter, and as a result major foundations are zeroing in on handhelds for preschool and the primary grades. "Student Response Systems typically cost $1,200 per classroom," Poll Everywhere CEO Jeff Vyduna tells Fast Company. This particular classroom initiative will focus on the U.S., but don't think that means the rest of the world isn't eligible. [Image: flickr user compujeramey]
