One App, Infinite Resources: The Art of Open Platform

FirstToKnow-02 copyTo the non-developers among us, the phrase “open platform” doesn’t mean a whole lot, but for many of us, it’s a large part of the everyday user experience. iPhone and Android users will readily admit that our phones can’t do a whole lot without the web of applications we’ve come to depend on.
