Hand Me the Remote
Remote work is likely to grow if not become a permanent feature of modern work life now that the tools to get it done are mature and put to wide use all in one go.

Even though we are technologists and, well, actually make this stuff, keeping on track and in the loop with the mothership takes skill, practice, and careful attention.

Our best bet is to read up on best practices and look to improve as we go. InVision's remote design best practices is a great place to start.

Mobile Security: Now, More Important Than Ever
We love the convenience of mobile phones, but the reality is that your device and the apps running on it are a big target for hackers.

A top issue is insecure authentication which goes along with insecure data storage. Communication issues include handshake issues, incorrect SSL versions, clear text communication of sensitive data and lack of cryptography when needed.

We offer some ideas of what you can do to secure your mobile apps.

Create An Outlook-Style Events Calendar

Calendar views are a must-have for many web-based applications. Normally, coding them into your app becomes a real challenge when your users are on the go and have a need for mobile-based viewing.

Create Rich Tooltips and Popups

In many Plex applications, basic screens show only “need to know” information, with a link to more detail. With CM WebClient, create handy tooltips that provide a better user experience.

Knowing When Enough is Enough in Mobile Design

As programmers have learned since the beginning of coding, it can be difficult to feel your program is ‘done.’ There’s always more tweaking you can do, but are you really making it better?
