Mobile Outlook 2010 – Where Are We?
August 11, 2010 – 11:10 a.m.
We are currently experiencing what will probably be the largest technological shift since the introduction of the internet onto our campuses for widespread use. Powerful mobile devices are expected to increase at a tremendous rate at universities and elsewhere in the world over the next few years to the point that many activities now done via a desktop machine will be enabled on hand-held devices. This holds great promise but also much uncertainty – so where are we now?

    • About the University of Denver • The oldest and largest private university in the Rocky Mountain region, the University of Denver attracts thought-leaders who are committed to academic rigor, community engagement and global responsibility. In this active, intellectual environment, you'll discover unbounded opportunities to affect change in our growing global society. • We enroll approximately 11,600 students in our undergraduate and graduate programs. • The Carnegie Foundation classifies DU as a Doctoral/Research University with high research activity. JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 4
    • About the DU Center for Teaching & Learning The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) offers a variety of faculty development opportunities including workshops and seminars, grant funding for faculty-initiated projects, and support and development of technological applications that advance teaching and learning goals. Two Units: • Teaching and Learning Support • Grants and Teaching Support • Application and Services Support • Research and Development • Application Development (ColdFusion, Flash, Flex, AIR, Java, PHP) • Technology Advisement and Forecasting JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 5
    • Mobile Outlook 2010? Mobile is basically anything device can carry around with you! Many believe this is the future of general computing. During this session, we will be discussing a number of things. • Different forms that mobile computing takes • Mobile platforms • The Mobile Web • App Stores and Markets • Problems with Fruit • DU and Mobile JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 6
    • Form Factors? Devices? • Phones • We are still calling them phones??? • iPhone and Android devices • Also traditional cell phones • Tablets • Emerging market • iPad is the first of many • Bunch of Android devices coming soon • Netbooks • Ultra-portable (underpowered) laptops • Laptops • The mobile standard for years! JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 7
    • This is Uncharted Territory! Everyone is guessing at this point. Plenty of forecasting. Lots of new, emerging stuff. Lots of OPINIONS and UNKNOWNS!!! JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 8
    • Let’s talk mobile platforms JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 9
    • Platforms • RIM BlackBerry OS • Apple iPhone OS • Google Android OS • Microsoft Windows Mobile • Linux • Symbian OS • Palm OS JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 10
    • Mobile and the Web m. Subdomain Websites • Generally made for older phones • Super-basic version of the website content • Basically a big list Phone Formatting • Phone Browser overrides the text width • Sometimes removes images Custom CSS • Website has a mobile CSS for phones • Probably the best solution for a while JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 11
    • App Stores and Markets • Popularized and pioneered by Apple for the iPhone. • Adopted by Google Android and others. • Makes it convenient to just grab apps with little hassle. • Must be written for each and every platform. • As a result- not all apps are on all device platforms. • This is BAD. Very few have the time, money, and people necessary to do this. JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 12
    • Let’s talk mobile development JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 13
    • Native Development Apple iDevices • Apps written in Objective-C (1986) • Vastly different from many other languages • iPhone SDK (Apple Proprietary) • Many tools are Apple-only Google Android • Apps written in Java (1995) • Shares many similarities with C#, ActionScript, and other languages • Android SDK (Open Source) JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 14
    • Packager for iPhone - Problems with Fruit • Adobe announces Packager for iPhone in late 2009 to allow Flash developers to compile their code to native and distribute through the App Store just like any normal app. • Days before CS5 launches, Apple changes their developer agreement to exclude all apps written using “intermediate layers” – This includes Flash, Lua, Unity, C#; anything that is not Objective-C • This is a problem. • Adobe refocus on AIR for Mobile, specifically AIR for Android but other platforms will follow. JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 15
    • AIR for Android • Super-private prerelease earlier this year – later opened wide to a much larger prerelease program. • If the user downloads an APK from the market and does not have the runtime, AIR will be seamlessly installed the first time they grab an AIR for Android app. • Cost is minimal. Flash and Flex developers can leverage the skills they already have and distribute their apps across platforms and devices easily. • Mobile Flex Framework “Slider” is no more. • Flex 4.5 “Hero” will include specifics for mobile applications – specifically to deal with resolution differences across devices and touch interactions. JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 16
    • What is DU doing about Mobile? JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 17
    • DU and Mobile • Experiments with Adobe AIR for Android • CourseMedia™ StudyShufffer • Adobe AIR + Flash Player will be on Android, BlackBerry, Symbian OS, Palm/HP, Windows Mobile… • Farthest reach – write once, run *almost* everywhere • Apple iDevices remain a problem • Apple iDevices remain a BIG problem! http://www.openscreenproject.org/ JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 18
    • Experiment #1 – SketchNSave JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 19
    • Experiment #2 – StudyShuffler JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 20
    • What about Flash Player on Android? Works pretty well! • Near parity with the desktop 10.1 • Anything CPU/GPU-intensive will tax any battery; Flash or no Flash. • Have not noticed any battery drain on normal usage. • Even streams video at 1x connection! However… • Desktop controls often tiny, tiny… • Developers can optimize apps for mobile in many ways. • New ways to think about UI on ANY platform – not just Flash. JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 21
    • The future? JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 22
    • Mobile Forecasting Platform Market Share Changes? • Android on the rise! • Expanding options! • iPhone steady • Traditional platforms reduction • Windows Mobile 7 Will iDevices Open Up? • Maybe. Where are all the Tablets? • iPad is leading the way JOSEPH LABRECQUE - MOBILE OUTLOOK 2010: WHERE ARE WE? 23
