Mobile development tools.
Developing "code for the road" is no easy task. Developers have to create applications for users who are used to large screens, eye-catching multi-media features, and lots of memory--but do it on devices that fit in the palm of your hand.

tulaipaul (Member): Developer should get the right value through various mobile ad network 8/23/2013 10:03 AM
I agree. One should definitely use more than 1 ad network and keep testing all the time. It may be highly useful, if people can test their worth at Chartboost and appnext, where each has it's own better performing countries.
