Today I learned the effect of using gifs when creating bug reports or really, to explain anything. I recently needed a tool for doing quick screen captures and ended up using a tool called Droplr. At the same time I noticed that you could generate gifs from your screen captures with as much ease. I’ve found that it’s almost always easier to show how to create a bug than to write about it.
At work we are currently building a mobile web application together with a client. We decided that we would a good idea to use Application Cache for offline mode as well as handling updates when we release new versions of the site. It’s been a long road and I kind of knew that we would hit roadblocks. But I never thought that they would just keep on coming. Although, I’ve learnt that it’s not only the App Caches fault.
