About the Book

An initiative headed by Enough Software, a German app development agency.

The free, non-commercial book that provides an overview on the different mobile technologies and platforms for developers and decision-makers. Learn everything about how to create solutions for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Java ME or Windows Phone.

More than 20 writers from the mobile community share their know-how, across more than 250 pages, in dealing with topics such as accessibility in mobile apps, LBS, mobile analytics, prototyping, cross-platform development, native development, mobile web and app marketing. This project was initiated in 2009 and we have since published a number of updated versions. As of today, we have distributed over 50,000 hardcopies. The 12th, and latest, edition was published in February 2013.

Should you want hardcopies of the guide sent directly to you, we will also be happy to do so in exchange for nominal fees for postage and packaging.
