Your cloud doesn’t sleep – even when you’re not in the office. To make it easier to manage your cloud on the go, we’ve added some seriously powerful monitoring information to the Rackspace Mobile App for iOS and Android devices. A quick trip to the App Store or Google Play Store for the updated app will give you mobile access to a host of new features that bring you instant information about how your cloud is performing. Once limited to your desktop, we’ve brought some seriously powerful monitoring information to mobile devices, allowing you to stay informed on to go.
It’s an anytime, anywhere world – and you should be able to easily manage your Rackspace Cloud on the go. To help you do that, we’ve refreshed and retooled our Rackspace mobile app for Android. Now you can create and manage first and next generation Cloud Servers wherever you are from your Android-powered smartphone.
We all wish we could be rock star web designers and developers, but there just isn’t enough time in the day. Wireframing is time-consuming and so is learning HTML5. Instead, you can call on Drifty, a new software studio based out of Madison, Wis. that makes easy-to-use cloud-based tools for developing mobile apps and websites using web technologies. The two apps, Codiqa and Jetstrap, are helping more than 150,000 users combined create apps and sites faster and more efficiently.
One of my favorite services here at Rackspace is Mailgun, a set of APIs that allow you to send email and manage mailing lists via a REST API. Coming back from a recent trip to San Antonio I decided that I would add an Objective-C interface to send email via Mailgun using my own iOS interface instead of using Apple’s `MFMailComposeViewController.` This library is now open sourced on Github and available via Cocoapods.
There’s no denying that the world has gone mobile. Mobile technologies are disrupting nearly every industry. IDC estimates that this year mobile technologies will account for roughly 57 percent of the IT industry’s overall growth. Clearly, mobile is the place to be – it’s where the web was in the 90s.
