July 2013 Developer Tips "Newsletter"...

These are the July articles for the SocialBiz.org Developer Tips Newsletter

In another article this month, I wrote about how small changes can make a big difference in modernizing an application. Modernization can also help your applications make the move to mobile. In general, mobile layouts are small. Tablets and phones just don't have the same screen real estate as giant double-monitors do.
