How JustEat developed mobile apps for international audiences

I spent a little time watching some of the developer-focused presentations given at the recent Swift Heroes event, but thought an insightful explanation of the benefits of modular iOS app development from JustEat principal developer, Alberto De Bortoli may be worth flagging up.Fast growth? New problems... Since inception, JustEat has grown fast, and this eventually led it to adopt a modular approach to development quite early on, Bortoli explains.The move followed a couple of years during which the company operating two distinct teams to handle development of its apps: One team was dedicated to the UK, where the company began, while the other handled apps for international markets.To read this article in full, please click here

Hands on: What it's actually like to use Windows apps on Chrome OS

Hi. I'm writing this in the Microsoft Word app for Windows...on a Chromebook. I've got Microsoft Edge open, too, all within the standard Chrome OS interface — complete with my usual set of web apps, Android apps, and even Linux apps in the mix.Worlds are colliding, in other words. And if my first official taste of this wild new reality tells me anything, it's that the traditional boundaries we tend to think about with platforms and operating systems no longer apply. At least, not when you're using a Chromebook.Let me back up a sec and set the stage for my surreal little experiment here: Back in June, Google announced it was working with a company called Parallels to bring Windows app support into the Chrome OS environment. The magic works via a virtual machine that's installed on the Chromebook and then made to run locally on the device, which means you can use virtually any Windows program as if it were a local app — whether you're online with an active internet connection or not.To read this article in full, please click here

The New Normal: When work-from-home means the boss is watching

In the midst of a pandemic that’s led to unprecedented levels of remote working, digital tools to monitor employees in real time are gaining popularity among companies looking for new ways to track employee productivity. At the same time, the trend raises concerns about employee privacy and how far companies should be allowed to go to keep tabs on their workers.Applications such as StaffCop, Teramind, Hubstaff, CleverControl, and Time Doctor include real-time activity tracking, can take screenshots of workers’ computers at regular intervals, do keystroke logging, and record screens. In some cases, the tracking tools can be installed without the knowledge of employees. Companies say they’re focused on transparency and productivity, but privacy groups decry draconian “Big Brother” moves made possible by technology. (Computerworld reached out to several of the vendors for comment; they either did not return messages or could not provide someone to discuss their software.)To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft Planner cheat sheet

Have you ever worked with several other members of your organization on a single project? You probably have, in which case you know that as soon as more than two or three people get together and start planning things, staying organized is difficult. Tracking who is responsible for what, what deadlines exist, what the objectives of the project are, and all of the attendant supporting documentation and materials can be very difficult — or perhaps just time-consuming. Either way, it’s not a pleasant task.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story)

Microsoft expands anti-IE tack, compels 1,000 sites to open in Edge

Microsoft will amp up its damnation of Internet Explorer (IE) and solidify that very aged browser's second-rate status by soon forcibly redirecting more than a thousand websites to the much newer Edge.According to an Oct. 19 support document, as of the release of Edge 87 — expected Nov. 17-19 — IE will refuse to render hundreds of sites, automatically closing the tab in IE and then displaying a message asserting that they don't work in the obsolete browser.To read this article in full, please click here

How Apple (yes, Apple!) could revive Android's missed opportunity

Gather 'round, gang, 'cause Granpappy Writerman's got a saucy little story to share.The other day, y'see, I was sitting and staring at my computer screen — as one does — when a page came along that made my mouth go agape. Agape, I tell you. Agape! And it wasn't just because it was dangerously close to lunch time and I detected the scent of hoagie in the air (though if we're being completely honest, that might've had something to do with it).No, siree — the main reason was that I had stumbled onto an official Google announcement of a fancy new phone widget for its Photos service...on iOS.To read this article in full, please click here

20 ways to maximize collaboration with the new Gmail interface

The inbox sure ain't what it used to be.It's hard to even remember now, but way back in the prehistoric internet era of the early 2000s, an inbox was quite literally just an inbox — a place where your incoming email landed and waited for you to answer (or, perhaps more likely, ignore) it.Now, following Google's recent repositioning of Gmail as a collaboration-friendly productivity hub, email is only one small part of what the inbox represents. The new Gmail setup is a mashup of email, one-on-one messaging, channel-driven team chat, individual and group video meetings, and even multiperson document work. It's a "new home for work," as Google puts it, and there's really no single point of focus — as the website's newly expanded left-of-screen sidebar makes immediately apparent.To read this article in full, please click here

Should IT buy the new iPhone 12 Pro? Almost certainly not

Reviewing all of the material Apple released about its iPhone 12 Pro line, it's clear that Apple has some of the best marketing talent anywhere. But when it comes to whether enterprise IT should consider buying these phones — for those operations where BYOD hasn't already alleviated the need to buy phones — it doesn't make sense.Apple's great at making something irrelevant sound fantastic and a must-have feature. The biggest bogus claim for this year's rollout involves greater network speeds in the form of 5G support. Others have done a wonderful job of debunking that claim. The upshot of the 5G problem is that the 5G infrastructure simply doesn't exist yet in any meaningful way. That means the carriers can't deliver better speeds for almost all interaction points.To read this article in full, please click here
