Brentford v Derby: five key battles

first_imgBrentford face Derby at Griffin Park this weekend. Here are five potential battles we think could be crucial in Saturday’s game at Griffin Park.Jake Bidwell v Tom InceDerby could revert to 4-3-3 following their home defeat by MK Dons last weekend, which may mean Ince is pushed on into a more advanced position out wide. Either way, Bees captain Bidwell will need to be on his toes, even though Ince has not been at his best in recent weeks.Josh McEachran v Craig BrysonMcEachran is likely to return to the Bees side after recovering from injury. Bryson, a driving force in Derby’s midfield who also provides a goal threat, will be a key man for the visitors and controlling the midfield is essential.Chris Martin v Jack O’ConnellYoann Barbet’s sending-off at Sheffield Wednesday last week means he serves a suspension. O’Connell is likely to partner Harlee Dean and they can expect to be tested by the experienced Martin.Lasse Vibe or Philipp Hofmann v Richard KeoghHofmann started against Wednesday but Vibe will hope to return to the starting line-up. Keogh is a committed and wholehearted centre-back but has a mistake in him – as shown by his attempted clearance which presented Bobby Zamora with the goal that won QPR the 2014 play-off final.Alan Judge v Jeff HendrickJudge’s terrific form has been put down to a move into a central role, which offers him the freedom on which he thrives. Hendrick will hope to deny him that space in what could be one of the most important contests on the pitch.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Titanium 1.0 Launches: Build Native Apps for Desktop, Mobile & iPad

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts center_img sarah perez Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web Today Appcelerator is launching version 1.0 of their Titanium app-building system which allows developers to build mobile and desktop applications using standard web technologies like HTML, JavaScript and CSS. In addition to supporting desktop platforms like PC, Mac, and Linux, the new version of Titanium now supports both iPhone and Android with RIM Blackberry and Apple iPad support just around the corner. Unlike other DIY toolkits that promise mobile apps without needing to know code, Titanium lets web developers leverage their existing skills to build native mobile applications that do anything any app built using that platform’s specific technologies could, like access the phone’s camera or stream video, for example. What’s New Titanium’s code base has been improved over the past few months resulting in a number of upgrades to performance. Notes the company, “load times are under 3 seconds, down from 10-20 seconds, transitions between pages are instantaneous and processing speed has improved five-fold.” They’ve additionally added more features to offer over 100 native UI controls, native 2D/3D animation capabilities and data and media presentation capabilities. With these new improvements, developers can now build branded apps, casual games and augmented reality applications that run on any of the supported platforms. Why Titanium?When asked to explain what really made Titanium different than the other app-building services out there, the company’s VP of Marketing, Scott Schwarzhoff explained that many of its competitors were simply offering web apps disguised as native apps as opposed to offering the real deal. Every other offering is not even close, he says. “Native user interface (over *100* native APIs)? We’re the only provider. Push notifications? We’re it. Native maps? Same thing. Facebook Connect? We’re the only one. Application analytics? That’s us. Augmented reality? Ditto. The list goes on and on.”Since June of last year, the Titanium platform has attracted over 27,000 developers thanks to what the company has dubbed their “native advantage.” Described here on the company’s website, this includes support for things like native controls, location-based services, social sharing, HTML5, online or on-device databases, integrated analytics, rich multimedia and more. With the launch of the iPad only weeks away, Appcelerator is promising support for Apple’s new slate device by the third week of March. Blackberry support will follow in May/June. Titanium’s Community edition will be completely free while a pro version offers premium support, analytics and beta access to new versions.Note: After this post was published, Appcelerator rival Rhomobile got in touch. They took issue with some of Appcelerator’s statements. Specifically, they wanted it to be known that Rhomobile’s Rhodes supports push as well as native mapping and Rhodes was the first native smartphone app development framework to do so. Also of note, they claim Rhomobile supports native UI in the only way that is portable. If you want to port to other platforms, Appcelerator’s methods do not work they said.last_img read more
