Android and iOS app binaries must be digitally signed with a certificate before they can be installed onto a user’s device. This is required so that users can be confident that the app publisher actually is who they say they are. For iOS applications, these are created on Apple’s developer portal, and can be regenerated.

Adobe just announced that PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build are shutting down. For many teams relying on PhoneGap Build for cross-platform builds, this, along with the recent iOS 13 build issues, is a big setback. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be! There is a great alternative to get your apps working that is a nearly drop-in […]

Every production mobile app ultimately has a set of recurring tasks around integration, testing, deployment, and long term maintenance.

We’re thrilled to have recently announced the release of Ionic’s fourth major version, and its ability to work across all frameworks (or with no framework at all).

We’re thrilled to announce that the release candidate for Ionic 4.0 (codenamed “Neutronium”) has shipped! This release brings many performance improvements and bug fixes for issues in our alpha and beta releases, along with (and most importantly) stabilizing the API and paving the way for the final version of 4.0, expected in early 2019.
