Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Mobile Zone (August 29 to September 4). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. The Similarities of Swift & Scala

You've probably heard about Swift by now. And if you have, you might have noticed that it has a few things in common with Scala. You wouldn't be the only one. But if you're not yet persuaded, or if you'd just like to see these similarities fully explored, Jacob Leverich has you covered.

2. Cordova Hello World with AngularJS & Bootstrap

This article presents a quick code sample to get started with Cordova or PhoneGap and AngularJS and Bootstrap CSS framework. The interesting thing to note is that the development can be be same as if you are developing an AngularJS & Bootstrap Web app.

3. iOS First, Android Later (or Never)

You don't generally hear that you should develop for Android first, but even if you go iOS first, Android comes second. That's the traditional wisdom, anyways. According to Semil Shah on Haywire, though, "iOS first" is an understatement. It should be iOS first, and Android in the distant future, if at all.

4. Android Development: How to Set Up Your Mobile Device for Testing

This article presents a quick tip on how to have your android app (developed using Android IDEs such as Eclipse or Titanium-based IDE) installed on your mobile device and have them tested right from your mobile device rather than from an emulator.

5. Native Game on Android - Porting Quest of Dungeons

I never made anything for Android, so when I decided to port QoD to it, I had no idea of what to expect. I decided to jump in and try to port the whole thing. As a primary goal I want to keep as much native code as possible, because it’s already working, porting it to Java could only lead to further bugs in the process.
