In This Chapter
As a developer, you inherently will build tools to help yourself become more productive. I have created various helper methods to assist in asynchronous communication, XML and JSON parsing, date and time utilities, and much more. Before you write a ton of helper classes or frameworks to handle items for you, I advise you to look on the Internet for tools that already exist. In this chapter, I compile a list of ten tools and utilities that can make your developer life much easier by increasing your productivity and ensuring that your app is up to snuff.
