Moves – Activity Tracker for iPhone and Android

Date posted: September 30, 2013

Added this new app Moves to my android device. It’s an app that tracks all my mobility. I find it very interested how easy this app works. But I already found the first think that annoys me of this app too. Where can I find all my stats on a single website? Probably there is a website but why can’t I find it?I don’t wanna use the app API to write my own stat page. This app still has a very clean simple UI.

Responsive web design (RWD)

Date posted: December 21, 2012

Responsive web design is a hot item on the web. I found Brad Frost on the web. He is a designer who offers a collection of patterns and modules for responsive designs : this-is-responsive

Brad Frost uses css to solve the responsive web design issues.

It is a combination of Media queries and the fluid proportion-based grid concept. More info

@media all and (min-width: 45em) {
.list li {
float: left;
width: 50%;

@media all and (min-width: 75em) {
.list li {
width: 33.33333%;

These are two media queries. He uses the “em” (scalable unit) to define the width of the page. In the first example we seen that the li elements gets a float = left and a 50% width property if the page width is bigger then 45 em.

In the second example the li element has already the float = left property but the width property is now set to 33.33333%.

In the css you then describe a different style for specific “DOM” elements.

More about “em” vs “px” vs “%” vs “pt” you can find on this page
