10 Solutions for Creating Cross-Platform Mobile Apps By Deltina Hay Is this an exciting time to be developing mobile apps? Short answer: Yes. With tons of tools already available — and more springing up all the time — there seems to be a solution for any mobile app developer out there (experienced and novices alike). In this article, we look at 10 solutions for building cross-platform mobile apps. Neutron star Neutron stars contain 500,000 times the mass of the Earth in a sphere with a diameter no larger than that of Brooklyn, United States A neutron star is a type of stellar remnant that can result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star during a Type II, Type Ib or Type Ic supernova event. Neutron stars are the densest and tiniest stars known to exist in the universe; although having only the diameter of about 10 km (6 mi), they may have a mass of several times that of the Sun. Neutron stars probably appear white to the naked eye.

Creating your first iOS app If you already have Xcode, you can skip this step. If you want to develop apps for iOS, you need the SDK, which is provided with Xcode. Xcode only runs on Mac OS X (yes, Apple is doing that on purpose), so if you are running a windows (or linux, or pretty much any non-Mac OS X) operating system, you have a couple options: 1. Get a mac, by far the easiest, but it can be rather expensive. Designing eLearning for mobile devices (We have created an 8-part comprehensive report containing a series of two-to-three page “briefs.” This is part 7: Designing for the small screen. If you would like to see the collection in its entirety, click here.) Here are general rules touted at mLearn 2011; these rules will adapt to the devices over time: 1. Neutron Stars - Introduction Neutron stars are compact objects that are created in the cores of massive stars during supernova explosions. The core of the star collapses, and crushes together every proton with a corresponding electron turning each electron-proton pair into a neutron. The neutrons, however, can often stop the collapse and remain as a neutron star. Neutron stars are fascinating objects because they are the most dense objects known. They are only about 10 miles in diameter, yet they are more massive than the Sun. One sugar cube of neutron star material weighs about 100 million tons, which is about as much as a mountain.

iPadiPhone Course By Sarah Jane Keller Steve Fyffe Paul Hegarty teaches students how to program applications for iPads and iPhones in a free online course that's the most popular download on Stanford's iTunes U site, with more than 10 million views. Students may covet seats in Stanford's popular iPhone and iPad application development course, but you don't need to be in the classroom to take the course. Anyone with app dreams can follow along online. Stanford has just released the iOS 5 incarnation of iPhone Application Development on iTunes U, where the public can download course lectures and slides for free.

mLearning in Practice Like all of our online courses, ‘mLearning in Practice’ is offered 100% online in Moodle.
