For many years I have been a great fan of using the iPhone 5 form factor which was why I refused to upgrade to anything bigger. Now, with the recent iPhone 12 Mini release I finally upgraded to a new phone. In this video I’ll explain why and if it is a worthy successor to […]
Few days ago while watching the Apple iPhone 12 keynote I wondered – Could you use this thing as a device to do programming on? So I tried. In this Video I will try to build a React + Node/Express app entirely on my iPhone SE using my favourite iOS IDE PlayJs.
I own a HTC Desire for quite a while now (actually since it came out) and I’m still very happy with it – and YES, I used an iPhone before and I’d never trade it for my Desire. However, one thing that really annoyed me was that synchronization was not as smooth as on the […]

The answers are quite interesting. After watching the video, I gotta say that Ludwig didn’t really have an […]
Hands down. Both, the “virtual” on-screen keyboard, as well as the “physical” slide-out keyboard aren’t the best input methods out there for mobile phones. Swype inc. has now developed a new, innovative input method, called Swype. Check out the demo video on golem.de for the mod on traditional on-screen keyboards.
