Development firm Mokriya launches DeveloperSource, the first of a series of resources, aiming to re-imagine the way companies recruit mobile development firms.

One of the world’s innovators in user-centric app design, Mokirya has worked with many of the biggest names in Sillicon Valley, including Path, LegalZoon, GlassDoor, MixPanel, Hipster.com, Threadflip, Sidecar, Alohar Mobile, Kicksend and Enthuse, as well as iconic international brands like Sea World.

The free resource Mokriya is launching in DeveloperSource is designed to help companies looking to find the right developer for an effective mobile app. In the company’s first 40-page “Decision Maker’s Guide to Evaluating Mobile Firms,” the company is offering its experience to marketing and product management executives deciding which company to partner with during the development of their mobile applications.

The aim is to continue adding additional guides to DeveloperSource, with the product serving as an educational resource going forward.

“App development is driving the surge in smart device usage,” said Mokriya founder Sunil Kanderi, who attributes his training as an engineer for Monkiyra’s emphasis on design strength, “apps are the reason people want smartphones. They’re the ideas that are pushing the whole industry forward. But having a good idea isn’t enough anymore. The execution is ultimately what will determine if an app reaches that critical threshold, or gets lost in all the other products flooding the market.”

According to Flurry analytics, there are more than 1 billion smart phones and tablets in use already worldwide, with China recently surpassing the United States in total smartphones, and a huge potential market beginning to expand in India, the global demand for the apps that drive an estimated 80% of smartphone use promise to represent one of the tech-world’s most important industries. According to studies by Mobile Future, the US app market alone, already predicted to surpass $23 billion in 2013, will represent $60 billion by 2016.

Y Combinator backed Statwing announces it has raised funding from Cloudera founder Jeff Hammerbacher, continuing its mission to re-imagine the way we approach data analysis. The brainchild of Greg Laughlin and John Le, Statwing affords powerful data analysis with none of the headache, through an intuitive interface combined with a wide range of visualization capabilities.

With Jeff Hammerbacher’s investment, Statwing looks to be in good company, as Jeff is not only the Co-Founder of Cloudera, he is also responsible for coining the term “data scientist”.

Statwing is also announcing its new Partnership Program, whereby partners can provide data analysis tools to their users, saving time and effort as they streamline the data analysis process. Partners can leverage Statwing’s new program in two ways, one of which is free and carries the Statwing logo, and a second option where users analyze their data in a fully partner-branded version of Statwing—either embedded directly in the partner’s web app, or at a [partner].statwing.com-type URL.

For example, users of InCrowd’s doctor survey service see the results of every service in an InCrowd-branded version of Statwing; the data transfer is seamless, so their users feel like they’re still using InCrowd.

Services like AskMeEvery, a quantified self service, add an “Export to Statwing” link to their site so their users can one-click transfer their data to Statwing and begin analyzing it immediately (starting a free 2-week trial of Statwing).

“We couldn’t be happier with Statwing as a partner. Survata fulfills millions of survey questions for clients every year, and that data requires powerful analysis software to generate insights.  So, Statwing performs a critical function for us, and our clients constantly give positive feedback about it. Best of all, we were up and running on the API in 24 hours,” says Chris Kelly, CEO of Survata.
