COMP/ELEC 446 will consider programming models including natively running applications, web services and mobile tailored web pages. We will explore applications primarily on the Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad but will briefly cover Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone. We will also briefly touch on the development of web services to support mobile applications. The course culminates with a large project taking up most of the second half of the semester. Curriculum centers around and teaches iOS and code (iPhone/iPad); however final projects may also be completed in any major mobile system if the student has a foundation in Eclipse (Android) or Visual Studio (WP).
