Here is something that’s come up.
Microsoft has decided to not die and hit Google and Apple harder. Last week, Microsoft
announced  Universal Apps. Using Visual
Studio 2013, you can write one app that will run on PCs, Tablets, and smart phones
running Windows 8 (and Xbox One).  This
means that a Windows tablet might be a reasonable alternative to use for field
recording and impacts any  future mobile
developing you are going to do .

Adding sound to your HTML5 games for Intel® Architecture-based Android* devices - CodeProject

Introduction to Article



Sound is one of the most significant components for building interactive
games. A game requires not only a high caliber of graphics and alluring
story line, but also sound impacts to awe the players. Adding sound
effects to your game/application not only enhances its entertainment
value, but also contributes to the application’s/game's general cachet
of quality.

Using the touch screen in your HTML5 games on Android* devices powered by Intel - CodeProject

Introduction to the following article



With the dramatic acceptance rate of smartphones and tablets has come an
enormous shift in the way spontaneous experiences are delivered on
these touch devices. Native application developers have incorporated
touch events to improve the user experience and change the way users
interface with their content. Mobile devices such as smartphones and
tablets generally have a capacitive touch-sensitive screen to capture
interactions made with the user's fingers. As the mobile web evolves to
enable increasingly sophisticated applications, web developers need a
way to handle these events. For instance, almost any fast game requires
players to press several buttons at once, which, in the perspective of a
touchscreen, infers multi-touch.

Faster page rendering by downloading JS/CSS before server generates full page - CodeProject

Intro:



When a dynamic page is executing on the server, browser is doing nothing
but waiting for the html to come from the server. If your server-side
code takes 5 seconds to perform database operations on the server, then
for that 5 seconds, user is staring at a blank white screen. Why not
take this opportunity to download the Javascript and CSS on the browser
simultaneously? By the time server finishes doing its work, server will
just send the dynamic content and browser will be able to render it
right away. This optimization technique can improve the performance of
any dynamic page that takes some time to finish its job on the server,
and has some js and css to download.
