This week we welcome Wapple — a company passionate about mobile — to the COMmunity. It's a great fit since Wapple has a long track record commenting on all things around the mobile Web (as it should since the company's DNA as a provider of 'build-once-publish-to-all' solutions is all about putting the mobile Web first). Hosting the COM gives Wapple an opportunity to "celebrate what’s great, new or in need of addressing on the mobile landscape" — and we're couldn't agree more!
With that Read more [...]

It's been a while since WIP (Wireless Industry Partnership) — the connector in the mobile industry, supporting the overall ecosystem by encouraging discussions, co-creation and exchange — took the helm at the COM, so it's great to welcome them back. It's also a good opportunity to alert you to the resources WIP publishes to help developers navigate mobile. From practical tips to a comprehensive list of apps stores (124 and counting!), it's all here. More recently, WIP published the Mobile Developer's Read more [...]
