MobileDevHQ likes to keep up on everything happening in the mobile space. We eat, breathe, and drink mobile, which means we read a lot of blogs and news sources. If you are reading this, you probably do the same. That’s why we are highlighting a few of our favorite blogs and listing the 5 blogs you should follow to get all your mobile news and information. Keep in mind, these are just a few of our favorites, so if you have any to add, put them in the comments section. Enjoy!
The Short: Good blog to check in on for weekly news on mobile advertising and the industry as a whole. Also check out their infographics!
This is a solid blog to keep up on for industry and mobile ad news. They are an app marketing company, and their blog provides solid industry information (especially for the European market). They have a great mix of recurring installments to go along with their unique pieces. One of their recurring segments we recommend is the weekly advertising news wrap-up . They give you the first few paragraphs of the article so you can see if it might be of interest to you. It is a good way to keep up with the top 3-5 news stories in the mobile ad world. We would love to see them paraphrase the article (think Daily Beast Cheat Sheet for mobile ad articles), it is a good way to keep up to date on what’s happening. They also have a lot of solid infographics, which of course everyone loves.
The Short: Definitely check out this site if you are looking for resources, tools, or advice for your app marketing needs.
This is a really nice comprehensive blog on mobile marketing. The posts are mostly tips and tricks, recommendations for tools, industry guides, and general app developing and marketing advice. If you are looking for blogs to keep up on industry news and insights, this probably isn’t the one. However, if you are looking for advice and best practices for app development and marketing, there are a ton of great resources here. There are a lot of good videos and top resources lists, which can be very helpful.
The Short: Good site to check in on for solid ASO resources reviews and resources.
Although you probably can’t tell by the name, this blog is completely focused on ASO, and we love it. ASO is our world, so this blog is right down our alley. The blog has a great mix of general advice/tools, and industry news (however it is a little more focused on tools and tips). Although there is lot of self-promotion (btw – check out our great free ASO tools at www.mobiledevhq.com), there are a lot of good resources and insightful articles as well. The one thing we thought it was missing was big industry trends and data, but there was plenty of other information to make up for that.
The Short: Great blog to check in on if you like podcasts, and are looking for a diverse set of lessons and information all based around mobile marketing.
This is a fantastic blog completely centered around mobile marketing. The posts are podcasts (which you may or may not like). We love how each post is very different, but they all share the central thread of mobile marketing. For example you can find a post on some lessons you can learn from big brands going mobile, followed by one on how dentists and doctors can use mobile marketing. It has a great interface, and there is also just enough text to quickly determine if you want to listen to the podcast or not.
Inside Mobile Apps
The Short: If you are in the app development space, whatever your role, this is a great blog to keep up with for any news about what is happening in the app development space. You might not find every post relevant, but you can definitely find a few jems.
You guessed it, this is the blog to follow for all app-based news. Although there is not a lot on mobile marketing, any new news on what is going on with applications can be found here. Releases, updates, top charts, new features and more can all be found here. If you are developing your own apps, this is definitely a blog you want to follow to keep up-to-date on what is going on in the app space.
