Mobile Dev Memo aims to be a daily source of news, opinion, and analysis for the mobile industry. In addition to publishing regular content, Mobile Dev Memo aggregates content from across the web in the form of “memos”, or descriptive article headlines capable of fomenting discussion.
What are Memos?
Memos are pieces of information created across the web; right now they only exist in the form of news articles fetched from about 100 different websites, but in the future they’ll also include Tweets and website comments. The memos are fetched intermittently throughout the day and then classified; if they fall into certain categories and fit the profile of something interesting and relevant to the mobile development community, they’re posted to the front page and given a dedicated space on this site for discussion. This is an example of a memo.

Writing for Mobile Dev Memo
Article submissions to Mobile Dev Memo are welcome, so long as articles submitted meet the following criteria:
- The article should be relevant to all aspects of mobile software development and not germane exclusively to a particular vertical, eg. gaming. This doesn’t mean that an article about a particular topic or breed of app won’t be accepted; rather, it means that conclusions drawn from the article should be applicable to mobile app development in general.
- If the subject of the article is a current event (eg. a recent acquisition, a company’s change in strategy, the release of a data point, etc.), the article should remain relevant long after the event has been forgotten. In other words, the article should be using the event as a case study, not merely reporting on it.
- The article should be written in English and be between 600 and 1500 words in length.
Articles can be submitted either in their entirety or as proposals using the contact form.
