Twitter Releases "Mobile App Playbook" to Help New Devs


When we think of Twitter, we think of a great many things, including good and bad aspects of the social network, but one thing we might not think about when we hear the name "Twitter" is help for budding developers. That's what the firm has just released however, with their new "Mobile App Playbook", a compilation of previously-released blog posts that the firm is hoping will give new app developers some great advice to follow. Considering their approach to third-party apps, it does seem a little strange to think of Twitter as a wealth of knowledge for developers, but that's what they want new developers to think after reading this playbook.

There are 10 parts to the Mobile apps handbook, and they cover such topics of signing into social media accounts, making money from your app and how you can make money from your app or game. Other topics include how to market the app as well as adding third-party APIs to improve your overall product. Much of the content here is of course slanted to one of Twitter's own offerings, that being Fabric which is a suite of tools that will help people get insights and analytics into what their app is doing and how they can improve. Despite this however, this sort of information is certainly worth taking a look at, especially if you're looking to create an Android app that adheres to all of the modern standards and offers everything a modern user will be expecting.


This is the sort of thing that developers will appreciate, but this is more about what to do with an app once you've either finished it or come close to finishing it. Which is something smaller teams and one-man-bands might certainly struggle with after being focused on getting the app finished and polished to a high standard after so long. Those looking to get some more information on what to do with their new app or game can take a look at the Mobile App Playbook from Twitter down in the source link below, and there's also a wealth of information available from Google, naturally.
