Mobile Development Blogs Every Developer Should Consider Following

The mobile development world seems to change daily.

After all, there’s always a new device, framework, or "open source" framework. It can often have you scratching your head trying to keep up!

To help you stay up to date on the latest and greatest changes, here are some of the best mobile development blogs we recommend following, from native to cross-platform:


Windows Developer Blog: The Windows Developer Blog is written by various members of the Windows development team, and features not only mobile, but also IoT, PC and tablet-related posts as well.

Android Developers Blog: Covering various technical topics, this blog is written by various Google employees, including the Google Play team, the Android frameworks team, and the Android developer relations team.

iOS & Swift: Since so much of what is covered at Live! 360 is .NET and Microsoft-related, iOS can be, well, tricky. Never fear, Ted Neward is here! Ted is ever-present at our events, giving his “busy developer’s guide” to everything from TypeScript to Swift.


Xamarin blog: It may go without saying, but if you’re looking for anything related to Xamarin, be sure to first check out the official Xamarin blog.

James Montemagno’s blog: He is truly Mr. Xamarin, having presented at Visual Studio Live! on some of the latest Xamarin-related news. This is a good blog to follow if Xamarin is your mobile platform.

Joshua Morony writes extensively on HTML5 mobile application development. As a professional mobile developer, he shares his insights and experiences on using popular HTML5 mobile frameworks like Sencha Touch, Ionic and Phaser. On this blog, you’ll find posts on Local Storage Options for PhoneGap Applications, Creating Google Maps Components in Ionic 2, and Using the HTML5 Canvas Element in Sencha Touch.

The Polyglot Developer is a programming blog run by Nic Raboy. This blog features a range of tutorials covering important topics related to mobile and web application development as well as game development.

While we know the universe of mobile blogs is endless, we hope this list provides you with some valuable go-to resources in your mobile development pursuits!
