Node.js Enables Developers to Build Dynamic Networking Apps
Voxer is an iPhone "walkie-talkie" app that enables people to talk and listen at the same time, as well as leave voice messages if there is nobody on the other end. Voxer was built using Node.js, a development platform for creating dynamic networking apps.
Unlike other application libraries, Node is built around events, rather than threads or data. In the case of Voxer, it acts upon messages from other apps or inputs from users. It can also multi-task, in a sense--it doesn't wait for an event to occur before moving on to another event. Such an ability will provide developers with the tools to make next-generation apps, moving mobile apps to the next step in their evolution.
