Last Friday, my colleague Koen and I gave a presentation about the future of mobile and the choices City Live makes. We called it ‘the magic of mobile’. Our public? Students communication and multimedia design or the web decision makers of tomorrow. Take a look:

The presentation was part of a set of experimental media classes, in which the students are challenged to do an assignment with the tools they are introduced to. That’s why our R&D director Davy ended the presentation with a GLOWE workshop. He showed amongst others how you can make a mobile application with the GLOWE specification and put it on iGoogle or your blog as well.

Big day @ City Live. The Glowe developers community using our technology in open source, has welcomed its 100st member.

Our CEO Frank is in New York at the moment and attended a Barcamp there. He introduced the GLOWE technology to an American attendant, who became Glower number 100.

If you want to know what the developers community is all about, you can take a look at their website. City Live has provided the website GloweMe, from which the developers can spread their applications. At the moment, the Flickr Babes application is the most poplular, with 76 downloads. You can take the application mobile, but also embed it on your website. Soon even more possibilities will be available.

Three questions:

1. Would you like to win a Wii?
2. Are you in for something new?
3. Do you like mobile technology?

When your answer to the three questions is YES, you should instantly surf to the form of the GLOWE contest. GLOWE is the specification City Live uses. A developers community can make use of it as well and is now challenged by means of a contest.

The success of Twitter is really amazing. Since its launch in July 2006, the micro-blogging site built up a community of more than 1 million users that send 3 million messages each day. But will this success continue now that Twitter announced that free SMS updates are history?

Sometimes it’s good to dig up old news and see what we can learn from past experiences. With all the enthusiasm that is emerging around mobile Android, iPhone or Symbian applications I revisited an old article on mobile data user experience.

The original article was written two years ago by Elliot Drucker, a regular author of Wireless Week. I have summarised it for you here and added my personal interpretation.

Rule 1: Consistent User Interface

Natural and intuitive user interfaces are great, but consistency is even more important. Users don’t want to learn a new interface with every application.

Lesson: Use a framework to develop your frontends.
