Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Mobile Zone (February 20 - February 27). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Building a Peer-to-Peer Photo Sharing App with Couchbase Mobile

  • There are many ways to develop the PhotoDrop app, and using Couchbase Lite is perhaps one of the easiest. The core code for sending and receiving photos is barely 100 lines of code and contains zero lines of code directly involved in network communication.

2. Video: MobileFirst for Bluemix (MBaaS)

  • Last week I gave a presentation to the NYC Bluemix Meetup Groupon IBM MobileFirst for Bluemix. Not familiar with the branding and have no idea what that means? It is a mobile backend as a service, which gives you analytics, remote logging, user auth, data persistence & offline synch, push notification management, and more for your mobile applications.

3. Best Resources For Creating and Prototyping Mobile Apps

  • Professional web designers and web developers make it their business to create websites, web apps, and mobile apps for all types of clients. In this sense, they require the best tools that the present-day market has to offer.

4. Swift: When removeFromSuperview() Is Not Enough

  • I've just added a little menu button with pop out UIAlertController to my Swift node based user interface demonstration. Along with options to change the selected node's type, it also allows the user to delete the current node.

5. OAuth 2 Plugin to Simplify Mobile Development in Appery.io

  • OAuth 2.0 protocol is now the most popular authentication protocol for apps. By using OAuth protocol, you can securely authenticate with a variety of popular services what will increase app functionality and cover a much larger target audience.
