IE Sucks (less)

Microsoft doing things less sucks lately. I like their Windows 8 release strategy, even if they still copy Apple products and services (look new Microsoft stores). I shouldn’t criticize without using it but reaction on social media agrees me.

IE is the most hated browser or more generally, most hated software all times. But it looks like Microsoft turned this into a good oppurtunity with creating their new ad campaign based on this. They release this new video.

How to display AppStore banner in your web page

If you have an app and you might want to show an app banner when you user visit your page from their mobile safari. For iOS devices, displaying appstore banner is as easy as adding a meta tag to your html page.

How To Implement To Your Website

Add this meta tag to your web page:  <meta name="apple-itunes-app" content="app-id=your_app_id" />

You need your app’s id (a numeric identifier) which you can get it from iTunesConnect interface.

When you add this meta tag to you page, safari handles the rest and shows the banner. In iPad, it also shows some of the screenshots of your app.

Hello (rest of the) world

Hello fellows,

This is the introduction letter of my website’s English version. I’ve been writing articles/tutorials and sharing my development experiences with a local group of web developers under this domain since 2002. I got covered some of the well known and modern (at least all of them were modern when they were written 🙂 ) for common web development problems and techniques.

Anyway, now I’m starting to write all in English beside Turkish. You can switch between Turkish and English versions of the articles if there are linked articles in both languages.

Cheers to all techy geeks 🙂
