Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Mobile Zone (October 17 - October 24). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Ruboto Team Releases Ruboto 1.2.0

  • In conjunction with the announcement of the Android L preview, the team at Ruboto has released an update to their platform featuring support for Lollipop and the ART runtime.

2. UX Question, Handling Notifications

  • Lately I've run into two sites that handle notifications in a way that kinda bug me. I wanted to see if it bugs you too. I'm also curious if folks think my ideas for improvement makes sense, or if perhaps something else would be better.

3. Metal Kernel Functions / Compute Shaders in Swift

  • As part of a project to create a GPU based reaction diffusion simulation, I stated to look at using Metal in Swift this weekend.

4. Upgrading Cordova-iOS apps Outside App Store

  • In one of my last posts I explained how to upgrade Cordova-Android apps outside Google Play Store with angularjs. Today it's time for iOS' turn.

5. Sound Synthesis in Swift: A Core Audio Tone Generator

  • The other day, Morgan at Swift London mentioned it may be interesting to use my Swift node based user interface as the basis for an audio synthesiser. Always ready for a challenge, I've spent a little time looking into Core Audio to see how this could be done and created a little demonstration app: a multi channel tone generator.
