Motion.JS is a simple library that uses the Device Motion api, which is available in modern "smartphone" browsers to indicate orientation and rotation. The idea of Motion.JS is to make sense of the coordinates and mumbo jumbo that the event listeners emit. They are converted into simple events such as "shake". The library is Open Source, so anyone can feel free to fork the project on Github and push us any changes or fixes.

I am never sure what to put in an opening post of a blog. Yet again I am in the same situation! So what is going to be on the blog? Bascially anything that is important enough to tell you about. This could be a good write-up, a new app launch or some relevant news from around the web. So please subscribe to the RSS feed and keep up with all the news and developments from Hootware. Ollie
