  • How the mobile and cloud dream team is reshaping sport and enterprise

    Mobile makes computing look easy; not only easy but sexy too. From point-to-point directions to play-by-play sports action, our screens light up at just the right moment to keep us in the know. In reality, however, mobile devices are just an endpoint. They are powerful, but nowhere near powerful enough to perform the processing required for all but the most basic operations. And just as professional athletes make their sport look easy, in reality these super stars actually have an entire team behind them that propels them to shine at just the right moment. For mobile, this powerful teammate…
  • Mobile Transactions Encouraged By Effective Mobile Marketing, Responsive Design

    Mobile Marketer
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    At no time in history have consumers been more inclined to make a sudden and otherwise unplanned purchase via mobile than they are today. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that effective mobile marketing is being credited with spurring an uptick in mCommerce. When provided with a valuable and relevant offer, enticement, coupon or invitation delivered via SMS, in-app message, or mobile-optimized email, consumers are inclined to act fast. And, once again, there’s never been a larger pool of mobile consumers who do exactly that — act fast to purchase the products and services…

  • Amazon has made its Appstore for Android obsolete

    Michael Gorman
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:39 pm
    Since its creation, the Amazon Appstore stood apart, banned from being offered in the official store for Android apps, Google Play, until now... sort of. When Amazon recently updated its main Android app, it got a new "Apps & Games" department that duplicates the content found in the standalone Appstore app -- effectively making it both unnecessary and obsolete. Naturally, because Amazon's still delivering apps outside the confines of Google Play, you need to change your device's security settings to accept downloads from unknown sources to install them. The change is a welcome one --…
  • The Nexus 9 wasn't designed to be an iPad killer

    Brad Molen
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    The Nexus 9 wasn't designed to be an iPad killer; it was designed to inspire Google's Android partners to create one instead. Though you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise: It was announced one day before the iPad Air 2 and mini 3, comes with a powerful 64-bit NVIDIA chip and will be competitively priced with Apple's tablets. But Alberto Villarreal, head of the Nexus 9's industrial design, insists that this wasn't the purpose. "We wanted to accelerate the premium market for Android tablets," Villarreal said. "[The Nexus 9] has a lot of attributes and definitely will bring the quality for…
  • Canadians now have faster mobile data than you

    Andy Bowen
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:41 am
    Our Canadian neighbors have already been given a taste of Rogers' extremely data-friendly LTE, but now the carrier is officially rolling out its LTE-Advanced network across 12 different cities. In fact, it's the first North Amercian carrier to launch an LTE-A network, period. So? Well, that means denizens of the poutine-filled country can stream much more video than you can, faster than you can. And since Rogers' new tech is a combination of AWS and its 700MHz spectrum (which is the same frequency some US AT&T clientele are also accustomed to), customers will see a big improvement on…
  • Queen Elizabeth II takes to an iPad to send her first Tweet

    Ben Gilbert
    24 Oct 2014 | 5:39 am
    Queen Elizabeth II of England is pretty seriously old-school. She casually signs her name, "Elizabeth R." (the "R" stands for "Regina" or, in English, "Queen"). She wears killer matching outfits (as seen above) that would be at home in 1962. But she's also not above jumping into the modern age every now and again. Take, for instance, the tweet that she sent this morning -- her first ever -- from London's Science Museum. It's how she helped open an exhibit on "The Information Age" -- a live-action tweet from an iPad. There's some contestation over whether she sent the tweet herself; the tweet…

     The idea behind the Apple SIM that comes in the new iPads is most excellent: one SIM, many carriers. Whenever you want to switch carriers, you’d just pop into settings and pick the new one. If you want to bring your own SIM, you can — but otherwise, everything happens through software. No swapping SIMs, no ordering new SIMs, no hassle. Read More

And this is a bit of a hassle, since you can’t exactly just download the app from Google Play. But last month, Amazon quietly rolled out a new feature within its main Amazon application on Android which now includes… Read More

  • NWave Joins Weightless SIG

    21 Oct 2014 | 4:25 pm
    The Weightless SIG, which develops Internet of Things standards for long distance, low cost machine to machine connections, has announced a new parter with NWave technologies joining the group as a technology vendor. Weightless has already picked up some serious backers, including ARM, CSR, and Cable & Wireless. While many short range M2N solutions are available, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Z-Wave and others, they cannot provide long-range coverage. The IEEE standards group has developed a couple of White Space standards that promise better range. Those include the 802.11af…

  • Mimosa Networks: Outdoor Multi-User MIMO

    Sam Churchill
    20 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    Mimosa Networks, a pioneer in gigabit wireless technology, has announced a new suite of outdoor 802.11ac 4×4 access points and client devices, to create “the world’s highest capacity low-cost outdoor solution and the first with MU-MIMO”. It’s targeting Wireless ISPs and enterprises, but their products won’t be available until Summer/Fall 2015. Currently most 802.11ac access points use Single User MIMO where every transmission is sent to a single destination only. Other users have to wait their turn. Multi-User MIMO lets multiple clients use a single channel.
  • Google Fiber Going Wireless?

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:35 am
    Google has applied to the FCC for permission to begin wireless spectrum tests in the San Francisco area. According to Reuters, the company’s looking into a rarely-used millimeter wave frequency that is capable of transmitting large amounts of data, but only if the receiving equipment is in the line-of-sight. Google reportedly may offer a fast wireless service in markets where it offers Google Fiber Internet and TV service. By beaming Internet services directly into homes, Google would open a new path now dominated by Comcast, Verizon and AT&T. The Google wireless test, beginning…
  • Apple SIM: Sidestepping Carriers?

    Sam Churchill
    17 Oct 2014 | 9:11 am
    AT&T Mobility, Sprint, T-Mobile US and UK operator EE support a new SIM card for Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 that lets customers switch between carriers. With an unlocked phone or tablet you can change your service provider by changing the SIM card, but with Apple’s new SIM card, you won’t need to buy a second (or third) SIM card. Apple’s SIM card enables customers to easily switch service to a different carrier. As GigaOM notes, it’s unclear how the provisioning process will work if customers want to switch between carriers.

  • Android Wear gets its first big update with offline music syncing and GPS

    Roberto Baldwin
    23 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    One of the issues with wearables is that many of them need to stay connected to a smartwatch at all times. Android Wear has been no different. But an update for Android Wear just made smartwatches a little more independent. Android Wear now supports GPS sensors and syncing music to watches that support Bluetooth headsets for untethered listening. If you work out, this means you can track your run while listening to music without having to drag your smartphone with you while you exercise. One watch that will benefit from today’s update is the Sony SmartWatch 3 that ships with GPS…

Now you can draw and type directly on photos from your camera roll before you whisk them off to your friends. The paint brush feature offers varying stroke sizes and colors while the text field centers whatever you write in the middle of the photo. The text can be moved up or down.

The Apple SIM that ships in the new iPad Air 2 just made switching carriers and traveling abroad about a hundred times easier. Instead of having to replace a SIM every time you want to connect to a new carrier, the Apple SIM lets you choose carriers in both the US and UK from the Cellular Data setting in the iPad.

  • Tales from the Towers Chapter 52: Ubiquiti vs. Cambium vs. Mimosa, the Final Chapter

    Rory Conaway
    19 Oct 2014 | 11:48 pm
    I need to wrap up the Cambium and Ubiquiti comparison so this is the end, at least for a while. Part of the reason is that a third player is now in the game, Mimosa, so things are changing. I know there are other companies out there like Bitlomat, Proxim, and Radwin, but they are a very small part of the WISP market and I doubt that is going to change. They are all also proprietary and I’m not going in that direction with my philosophy although Proxim is working hard on integrating other GPS systems. Not sure about the other vendors. Chapter 49 got just too long to cover the nuances of all…

    I am impressed by the number of free Wi-Fi hotspots in Trieste, Italy. One of the best is Tiscali’s free Wi-Fi hotzone right on the Canal Grande, by Cafe Rossini and Antico Panada. The Canal Grande ends at the Church of Sant’ Antonio Nuovo. There is no annoying login or terms and conditions screen. When you see the Tiscali free Wi-Fi SSID, just click on it and you’re online. Here’s a screenshot of the Speedtest I did on my iPad. The upload speed is poor but the download speed is fine for checking email, looking up addresses on Google maps, etc. I found many other fast,…

    Rory Conaway
    24 Jul 2014 | 3:58 pm
    When Tom Wheeler was appointed to the head of the FCC, it was just another broken promise by the Obama administration to not put lobbyists into his government. The cellular and cable industry finally got their own boy to head the agency. Considering how much taxpayer money is confiscated from the taxpayer through the telecommunications industry under the guise of taxes, laundered through the FCC, and then reallocated back to the cellular and telephone companies in the forms of grants and subsidies (and paybacks to successful lobbyists), this decision was like appointing a new Capo di tutti…

    One of the major themes I address in my current research on voice and video / WebRTC trends is one I call "delamination". It's the opposite of vertical integration - the carving out of thin, narrow layers of services or products, in areas where companies have particular skill, focus or market reach.It might be provision of a particular bit of client-side software, an effective hosted TURN server, an "enabler" of some kind, a particular security or authentication element, an especially-scalable virtualised network function, testing or analytical product, and so forth.In a design-led approach…
  • Apple's SIM card - less of a gamechanger than many people think

    Dean Bubley
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:33 am
    Let's get one thing clear straight away: it's not a Soft-SIM that's in the new cellular version of the iPad Air. Apple isn't becoming an MVNO, either. And it's not about to put Apple in the position of supreme gatekeeper for the world's telcos, much less charge them for the privilege.Although the precise details remain available only in outline and inference, it appears that the "Apple SIM" is just that - a physical SIM, in familiar card form. It just comes pre-installed at the factory, but (it seems) can be removed and replaced as normal, for example with a SIM from an operator that isn't…

    A question to readers: what is the overall penetration of carrier VoIP lines into the installed base of broadband connections, both fixed and mobile?The answer may surprise you. It's currently just 8% overall.It's that low partly because of the huge volumes of 3G devices and connections that now exist, which all use circuit telephony and SMS. It's also because carrier VoIP use is still only creeping up slowly in consumer broadband, to around 30-35%,12 years after the first such service launched. Finally, although LTE is now cracking through the 250m user barrier, only a tiny fraction…

    Michael Essany

    Once upon a time, the Click-Through-Rate (CTR) was the holy grail of engagement metrics. Not now. “Marketers only using clickthrough rates (CTRs) to measure mobile ad performance may need to take a step back and re-evaluate, based on a September 2014 report by xAd, Nielsen, and Placed,” explains a recent eMarketer report. “According to the research, while CTR has been the standard metric for online banner ad engagement, it doesn’t completely cut it when looking at mobile ads.” There’s more than one reason why.

The 5.5-inch device is essentially a bigger version of the iPhone 6, but several software and hardware details make working with it more akin to using an iPad than an iPhone. The phablet has the greatest pixel density among Apple products, a battery that’s surprisingly strong, and arguably the best smartphone camera available today. Still, several flaws make it feel uncharacteristically unpolished and…

    Apple has finally relented to a market that demands bigger and bigger smartphones with its newest hero device, the iPhone 6. As always, Apple has created a phone whose specs aren’t terribly impressive on paper — trudging along a year or two behind those offered by Android flagships — but offers a premium feel and robust performance that many of its rivals can’t match. Apple iPhone 6 With exceptional performance, a highly modern design, a fantastic display, and an amazing camera, the iPhone 6 is the best Apple smartphone to date. However, it still comes with several…

  • Best Android Apps: Speed Booster – Phone Cleaner

    Comedian Louis C.K. has a great bit about how insanely impatient people are with their smartphones. Although he’s probably right, and although we probably should try to focus on being amazed that our mobile devices are even capable of doing the many incredible things they do, it’s still extremely frustrating when a $700 device doesn’t perform at its advertised speed. Speed Booster – Phone Cleaner is an app that even Louis could probably get behind. A free download in the Google Play Store, Speed Booster claims it can speed up your phone by up to 60 percent by killing unnecessary…

    Smartphone adoption in the United States is growing at a pace so brisk that many analysts are being forced to eat their words (and previous projections) calling for a much slower transition from feature phones to smartphones. According to the Mobile Marketing Association, all signs point to domestic smartphone penetration topping 80% within a decade. At present, U.S. smartphone penetration stands at 51.8%.

    At no time in history have consumers been more inclined to make a sudden and otherwise unplanned purchase via mobile than they are today. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that effective mobile marketing is being credited with spurring an uptick in mCommerce. When provided with a valuable and relevant offer, enticement, coupon or invitation delivered via SMS, in-app message, or mobile-optimized email, consumers are inclined to act fast. And, once again, there’s never been a larger pool of mobile consumers who do exactly that — act fast to purchase the products and services…

    How much should a small business spend on marketing? It’s a time-honored query, but there are no pat answers. So says Rhonda Abrams in a post for (Asbury Park Press). “Throughout my years of working with small-business owners, ‘How much should I spend on marketing?’ is one of the questions I get asked the most. Is 10 percent of my total revenue too little? Is 20 percent too much? Unfortunately, the rules are not hard and fast,” writes Abrams. In lieu of answers, many small businesses try a scattershot approach which is deadly. “Most small-business owners…

    Today we had a brief 15 minute first look at the new Nexus 9 tablet from HTC running Google’s new Android Lollipop operating system. We were not allowed to photograph it next to any other tablets or devices, so all you’re going to get is some photos of the tablet by itself and a few first impressions. Also, the device is running a preview version of the new Android operating system, so of course things are going to change on that end, but we can get a pretty good idea of what the hardware is going to be like.

    One of the many cool things about the iPad Air 2 (as well as the iPad mini 3) is the inclusion of an Apple-branded SIM card. Rather than having to choose a carrier first, then go and seek out a matching SIM, the Apple SIM gives users the ability to decide on a network and plan at their leisure, with the hardware ready to support T-Mobile, AT&T, or Sprint. And if you’re not willing to commit to a long-term agreement, you could always switch things up and try shorter-term plans from various carriers ...

The Apple SIM might sound inconsequential, but it lets Pay-As-You-Go customers easily switch between mobile operators without having to swap SIM cards; and today most people rarely change networks simply because…

It’s not that voice recognition on the iPhone is bad – most of the time it provides reliable and accurate information (when I’m in the UK; but abroad it’s another story) but it’s usually not much quicker than just navigating to an app or typing in a search query manually.

While it’s famously hard to learn from other people’s experiences, it saves an awful lot of teeth gnashing if you can. It’s also just as difficult to figure out if any of these apply to you, which is why you should have a generous smattering of independent mentors or advisors to point out the truth (see Mistake 18). 1. Not understanding the profound implications of exponential growth and what it…

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8 (and 10-inch) has a stand too and at under 1 pound / 426 grams it’s the lightest self-standing PC in the world. That makes it interesting for me, especially as it’s got a 1920×1200 screen, a big battery, an LTE option and a starting price of just $299 (dual-band WiFi version.) According to a retailer in Germany that has it up for pre-order there’s a digital compass and GPS. This is too good. I hope not though because…

    At last. Microsoft have just announced the name of the next version of Windows and to everyone’s shock it’s going to be called Windows 10. Windows 10 Logo I’ve been following the live blog at The Verge and hundreds of tweets coming out of the event and it’s already clear that Microsoft is going to be focusing on business with Windows 10. A familiar look, security and management is being promoted which, for those of us into touch, is a worrying start. As was previously rumored, Store-based Universal apps will be sandboxed and will run on the desktop. At this point…
  • HP Stream to join the confusing low-cost Windows Tablet party.

That’s all I’m going to tell you right now. Above: HP Stream 7 advertising What can I say? Having had a bad experience with 1GB RAM on the Toshiba Encore 2 WT8 I just can’t get excited. I’m also confused about why manufacturers think this is a good idea? The platforms are likely to have been developed, tested and approved by Intel leaving HP and others to build the casing but there are major issues that will affect…

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Sales Off to a Good Start: 4.5M Units in 1 Month

    Softpedia News (Cosmin Vasile)
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:52 am
    Samsung warned the press and investors that profits this quarter will be lower than ever due to low smartphone sales. However, that doesn’t seem to affect the company’s new flagship smartphone’s sales, the Galaxy Note 4. According to a report coming from South Korea via GforGames, no less than 4.5 million Galaxy Note 4 units were sold by Samsung in the first month since the phablet went on sale. That might seem a very low number in comparison with Apple, which sold no less than 30 million iP... (read more)

    The most powerful smartphone in the Alpha lineup has yet to be officially introduced. Samsung hasn’t confirmed the Galaxy A7 and we don’t know when this will happen, but judging by the flow of rumors we’re not that far from an official reveal.

Dubbed after its Fire lineup of products, the smartphone was stuffed with Amazon’s services and apps, but did not really stand out from other devices in the same price range. Aside from its 3D interface, there was nothing that would make millions of people want to buy the Amazon Fire Phone, which was obvious only a few days after its release.

It was first reported on HowardForums last week, and seems to be quite the widespread issue.

    23 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    The great thing about understanding mobile is knowing that it is not now - nor may it ever be - the end game we thought it was meant to be. Huh? Mobile is an incredibly important part of an overall strategy and that strategy needs to be baked before getting into mobile anything. We've seen so many companies dive head-first into mobile and then, once they are hip deep into a project, try to figure out where it fits in their business. This won't work now and it won't work tomorrow. This will never ever work. Instead of thinking that mobile is the end game, you should be thinking about how…

    Since Twitter for Windows Phone is so lackluster in terms of features and performance, we mostly rely on third party apps for our Twitter needs. This may not be true for everyone but for power users, Twitter’s official app is a no go. It lacks many features that are present on its IOS and Android counterparts. It’s quite slow, the UI is not optimized for big screen(or any screen), notifications often come in late. Not to mention how seldom it gets updated.

  • Third-party apps: Can we trust them after Snapchat data leak?

    Meghan Kelly
    14 Oct 2014 | 11:48 am
    Snapchat is waving its arms in the wake of two data breaches this week saying, “We didn’t get hacked, a third party did!” Now people are questioning whether we should dump third-party applications as a rule of security thumb. Our gut reaction? Absolutely not. What’s going on here? Last week, Snapchat users had hundreds of thousands of photos leaked onto the forum 4chan. Snapchat says third-party apps are to blame. In Snapchat’s case, it seems “Snapsaved,” an app that lets users save pictures that are otherwise intended to “self-destruct,” was breached. You can check out…

    Four days, three keynotes, hundreds of sessions. Eight thousand women in tech. The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Technology was off and running and what an event it was! But while it showcased some of the greatest female technical minds, there was also some, well, weirdness. First of all, let me say this: In order to demand equality and inclusion, you need to be equal and inclusive at your very core. You need to take out the common assumptions about who is better or worse or demanding of more attention. You need to welcome all with open arms, in order to ask to be welcomed. Otherwise,…

    In the last month we’ve learned about two vulnerabilities that affect the Android Open Source Project browser. The issue, however, is a widespread one, that touches more than just AOSP’s browser, but also derivative browsers that are based on AOSP’s code, such as Samsung’s browser. The issue is actually fairly widespread in our userbase. Around 45% of Lookout users have a vulnerable version of the AOSP browser installed. It should be noted that these users may have a separate browser, such as the Chrome or Firefox browser, installed. However, unless and until the AOSP browser is…

  • The future of customer experience is ours to choose

    Brian Solis
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:45 am
    The future of CX or customer experience is a bit of a play on words…it’s ours to choose rather than ours to lose. The truth is that many businesses are already losing, they just don’t realize it yet. Executives are making great assumptions about customer behavior that lead to new investments and new technology. But over time, this leads companies away from — rather than closer to — their customers, simply because the customer journey is evolving faster than our experience learning from and successfully shaping it is. My research shows that connected customers who live an active…

These familiar anthems, sung by thousands of enthusiastic undergrads, are part of what makes college football so exciting. But lately, the student section hasn’t been as loud as it used to be.

    There’s a brewery in Roseburg, Oregon that’s doing things “differently” to grow their business. Backside Brewery makes beers, fills growlers, and fills lots of them. So as a way to build a targeted list of customers, what better way then to have them text in to join your list!

    SEO: A web phenomenon whose only constant is change. Those three letters refer to the practice of tweaking your site so as to make it more visible and have it rank well for certain keywords. They also refer to a steady cause of anxiety and hair-tearing-out: just as you’ve figured it out, or thought you have, it changes, leaving everything you once knew turned on its head. Then, like a wisp of smoke, your SEO mastery dissipates and you’re left looking at your computer screen and shaking both fists at the internet deities. Do you know what you’re doing?

    The Ultimate Salesman Is there any feeling more dreaded than the rock you feel drop in your stomach when a salesman approaches you? “Maybe if I don’t move, he won’t see me,” you tell yourself hopelessly. Salesman nears; you avoid eye contact. You look for an escape and fidget uncomfortably as you realize there is none. Too late, he’s here: you force a smile and grudgingly engage in conversation. Joe Girard was that dreaded guy. He caused the discomfort and saw people’s desperate deer-in-headlights reaction–for Joe was a used car salesman. Joe, however, wasn’t your average…

    Mobile makes computing look easy; not only easy but sexy too. From point-to-point directions to play-by-play sports action, our screens light up at just the right moment to keep us in the know. In reality, however, mobile devices are just an endpoint. They are powerful, but nowhere near powerful enough to perform the processing required for all but the most basic operations. And just as professional athletes make their sport look easy, in reality these super stars actually have an entire team behind them that propels them to shine at just the right moment. For mobile, this powerful teammate…

In doing so, fan engagement and expectations at sporting events are undergoing unprecedented change. These high tech venues are providing a host of expanded and personalised experiences for…

What surprised me most was that, rather than featuring an announcement about the acquisition, it had a blog post that boldly proclaimed: “We don’t sell ads.” This post, written by co-founder Jan Koam, rides high on a self-congratulatory victory lap of a company fighting against the evils of personal information collection and unwanted advertising. However, this is in stark contrast to the fact that they just sold themselves to one of the biggest…

    Apple released its new iPads yesterday and they are totally boring, which is in an of itself not a huge deal. The bigger worry is that the new family of SKUs, covering every price and size from $250 to close to $1000 reminds me of the kind of tasteless shelf stuffing that took place at HP during the years I was there for both PCs and printers. Here is how it would go: some senior exec from one of the big channel partners (Costco, Staples, BestBuy, Tesco, etc.) would show up with a sales report or market study claiming that the price point between $399 and $499 seemed particularly fertile for…

There is no way to describe just how amazing the journey has been thus far, but it is fitting to borrow a line from Neil Stephenson's Snow Crash, a book I read 15 years ago in order to be ready for the day Oculus crossed my path: “See, the world is full of things more powerful than us.

Even when the programming exercise involves their beloved Minecraft (I will have a blog post on that adventure coming).

    Yesterday, Apple announced a minor refresh to their iPad portfolio, with improvements mostly focused on Touch ID and a thinner footprint. In many ways, this did feel like this was a "placeholder" upgrade. The new iPads would certainly appeal to loyalists, but they don't seem to target the primary reasons behind the recent slowdown.The slowdown in iPad sales (or high-end tablet sales, in general) was caused by three factors -- 1) Increasing overlap in use cases of large screen smartphones (or phablets) and tablets, 2) Inability to move downmarket, despite lower iPad Mini prices,…

    Despite the hype surrounding them, I have been skeptical about the potential of "wearables" as a mass market product category. Most of my analysis focuses on the primary use cases targeted by these devices, which still remain unclear. However, we haven't seen any data on sales that would give us an adequate understanding of market conditions. Of course, this is partially because these are still early days. That said, I thought it would be interesting to compare the early shipment performance of these devices with what we saw in the smartphone and tablet markets.The chart at the top of this…
  • Xiaomi's Q3: Growth As Usual

    The smartphone market saw an interesting dichotomy this week that reflects a changing basis of competition. Samsung announced a revenue and profit decline, while Xiaomi's Q3 sales grew 20% sequentially (and 300% annually). For Xiaomi, this continues a pattern that I highlighted earlier this year.Lack of cyclicality is usually driven by a couple of factors -- (1) A rapidly growing market, (2) Product and business model superiority relative to the basis of competition prevalent in the market, and (3) Expanding geographical reach. It seems that rapid sequential sales growth with minimal…

    Earlier this year, I compared Rovio's operating metrics with those of King's to highlight the different monetization approaches chosen by each company. In absence of updated MAU figures from Rovio, I had assumed modest growth from 263 million in 2012. As it turns out, Rovio's MAUs actually declined by roughly 63 million in 2013. Likewise, King has faced a few challenges as well. However, both companies seem to be fighting back with very different portfolio approaches.First, let's take compare ARPU figures for both companies. With the decline in MAUs, it seems that Rovio's moves to expand…

  • How Samsung's Galaxy S6 could be the best smartphone ever

    25 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    Samsung’s 2014 output started with a whimper, but built to a bang. So our hopes for next year’s Galaxy S6 are already high... Samsung was one of the first phone heavyweights to launch a new flagship in 2014: the mighty Galaxy S5, its very first waterproof smartphone, packing all kinds of cool features like a fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. But in the end, we slapped it with a 4.5 out of 5, falling just a wee bit short of pure five-star excellence (unlike the HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2). Still, we’re confident that Sammy has learned from its mistakes and that next year’s…

  • Android Wear update adds offline GPS and music playback

    24 Oct 2014 | 4:48 am
    The latest Android Wear update is rolling out, adding support for built-in GPS sensors and offline content - bad news for Will.I.Am... This means that any wearables using the Android Wear platform no longer need to be tethered to a smartphone in order to track routes or give directions, or even play music - a major bonus that few smartphones currently boast. Sony’s Smartwatch 3 will join the Android Wear program too, to take advantage of these new features. In addition to the brand new GPS capability, which will help you to get home at 3am when you're comfortably soused and your phone is…

  • Android Lollipop Offers API Sweetness for Developers

    Nick Kolakowski
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:03 am
    When Google unveiled the next version of its Android operating system at its I/O conference this summer, it chose to stay a little cagey about the name, referring to the upgrade simply as “L.” With the software set for release “in coming weeks,” Google has finally revealed the full name: “Lollipop.” That’s not much of a surprise, considering how Google names each successive generation of Android after a different dessert—maybe “Lemon Meringue Pie” or “Licorice” could have substituted, but the list of alternates is relatively short.

  • Is Apple’s Swift Worth Your Development Time?

    Don Reisinger
    6 Oct 2014 | 7:35 am
    At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple surprised many developers when it announced Swift, a new programming language for iOS and OS X. For the past several months, more developers have been using Swift side-by-side with Objective-C, Cocoa, and Cocoa Touch to build apps, giving them a chance to see what Apple believes will serve as its future framework for all software produced by third-party developers. The big question on the minds of many in the industry, however, is what makes Swift so special. What will allow it to replace the standard languages already in use for…
  • Why App Developers Need to Understand HIPAA

    Susan Hall
    2 Oct 2014 | 7:18 am
    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is complicated, and comes with hefty penalties for violations. As developers build more and more apps that leverage users’ personal and health data, they need to understand how this law works. HIPAA protects personal health data during transactions between entities such as insurance companies, hospitals and doctors. It was amended last year to require those covered entities to also vouch for the privacy and security practices of their business associates: companies that also handle their healthcare data, such as billing…
  • Do Mobile App Developers Need a Lawyer?

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Activity trackers, “smartwatches,” wearable electronics, and smartphones all come with more than the ability to record your daily steps taken or calories burned; the devices’ ability to record the nuances of daily activity—thanks in large part to a growing collection of third-party apps—has subjected them to quite a bit of privacy-related scrutiny. In a recent study, the Federal Trade Commission found 12 mobile health and fitness apps sending users’ personal information to 76 different third parties. Another study of the 600 most commonly used healthcare apps found less than…
  • Building Apps in Swift: Using Storyboards

    David Bolton
    29 Sep 2014 | 7:38 am
    In our previous article on building apps with Apple’s Swift, we demonstrated how to use view controllers and views in code to craft a simple app. Before we begin with this next lesson, using storyboards to build an app in Swift, it’s worth revisiting that first piece. (The code that accompanies the piece is stored on SourceForge as “First”) Remember that view controllers in Swift manage two roles: they controls views on a page or part of a page, as well as navigation between pages. Creating a multi-page app requires at least one view controller per screen. In our first…

    Sometimes, especially during conferences, somebody throws out the question. I always answered a sound no. As much as I base the most part of my business on Apple products, I think I’d not fit Apple’s culture as an employee. I have always found difficult to tell the why. Well, Ole Begemann transcribed part of Debug 47, in which two former Apple managers where interviewed. This is one excerpt that dazzled me When someone came into my office and said they wanna be a manager, I asked them, “How did you sleep last night?” And they said, “Oh, fairly well”. and I said, “Good,…

    Plugins are an important part of almost every CMS.  Traditional single install systems allow users to interact with and change the way core code functions.  Users of SaaS platforms are operating on a shared code base and cannot be allowed to modify any code that will affect other users.  The traditional methods of plugin development are not sufficient for these types of software.

  • Working Off-Line: New Forrester Report Tells All

    Joanne Dawson
    7 Oct 2014 | 3:19 am
    As enterprise mobile apps take off, the ability to have employees mobile-enabled even when connectivity is limited is rapidly becoming the new “must-have” feature.  Implementing off-line capabilities is not a simple task  as many development teams know. In Forrester Research’s recent report, “The Offline Mobile Challenge“, the analysts clearly various approaches, and when you should use which.  I do not want to steal the report’s thunder, but they describe the differences between read-only data access, last-write-wins synchronization, and complete…
  • Part III: A Blueprint for Building Long-Lived Mobile Apps

    Coco Jaenicke
    8 Sep 2014 | 4:19 am
    In parts I & II of our blog series on “Moving Beyond 1.0,” we discussed why many mobile apps never see version 2.0 as well as the steps developers are taking to meet the challenge of building a long-lived mobile app. In our final installment we will complete our advice on how to do this. Use existing it management tools – If you use Tivoli or CA, continue to use them with your mobile apps. Your IT operations need visibility into mobile apps if they are to manage them, and they need the ability to use the tools already installed and used in the enterprise. Doing so…
  • Part II: Moving Beyond Version 1.0

    Coco Jaenicke
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:23 am
    Mobile devices offer the ability to create direct connections with customers and empower a distributed workforce. With this opportunity has come a wave of mobile apps, as well as a competitive pressure to deploy those apps quickly. In the rush to get to market, the teams developing these apps are not planning for life beyond 1.0. However, a minimal amount of effort early in the development lifecycle can make the difference between an app’s 1.0 being the beginning of great things or the end of the line as natural evolution calls for tweaks and changes. As too many enterprises are finding…

    Chris Marsh, a principal analyst for enterprise mobility at 451 Research, said, “Enterprises need an open and extensible platform that, rather than just sitting as another silo, can work with existing IT infrastructure and scale policy, security, and compliance across mobile assets.” Enterprise leadership should take this future-thinking approach when embarking on building and deploying mobile apps to position their companies for the long term. Technology is a moving target. Standards are immature. Platforms are numerous. Distribution is a challenge. So what is an organization to…
  • Are Your Mobile Apps Ready for 2.0?

    Coco Jaenicke
    19 Aug 2014 | 2:21 am
    Mobile apps are a great way for enterprises to connect with customers and empower a distributed workforce. But behind the scenes, the mobile app development process can be stressful, driven by industry competition and tight timelines. We’ve seen this quick-to-develop, quick-to-deploy approach lead to many apps that don’t move beyond version 1.0. Of those that do, many encounter quickly mounting expenses and inflexibility when meeting changing business requirements during development. Planning for an app life beyond 1.0 should start early in the process, not after the app has…

    25 Oct 2014 | 5:45 am
    A Final Card Target, Home Depot, Staples. Every retailer appears to be susceptible to credit card breaches these days, which is why this month’s startup offers a particularly useful, insightful product. October’s Startup Of The Month is Final, short for ‘your final credit card’. Rather than assigning you a single static credit card number, Final gives a different credit card number to each place you buy something. That way, if hackers capture credit cards from Home Depot, or Target, you’re protected, and can cancel those cards with just a few taps in their mobile app, without having…

Unless you speak Chinese, you probably won’t get much out of the video, but if you’d like to be impressed, just watch a minute or two of it below. Mark Zuckerberg Did an entire Q&A session…

    How do you design for a category that hasn’t been invented yet? That has been Apple design chief Jony Ive’s mission for the past two decades, and he has found unimaginable success. In a rare interview, Ive sat down with Vanity Fair to talk about his process, his life, and his work. Interviews are rare for Ive, who prefers to design in peace, emerging only briefly for Apple’s events (often appearing in oft-parodied videos discussing the design).  The only other interview I can think of, was for the documentary ‘Objectified’.

    If you are human, failing at text marketing is going to happen. It is very common, in fact, there is a website that is dedicated entirely to cataloging those fails. This type of error is far more dangerous than a fail at the workplace, and it can easily ruin the reputation of your brand in a heartbeat. You are in luck, however, since most consumers have somewhat of an imagination and can laugh at mistakes. As long as the error is something such as an autocorrected error or minor issues, you can quickly recover from the marketing fail – if you know how. In order to recover after a text…

    Second to talking to a customer via face-to-face interaction, voice calls is the next traditional method of talking to them. However, not all businesses can communicate via these methods. Online brands, for one, cannot communicate face-to-face or through the telephone.  Text message marketing has made it possible for these brands to communicate with their customers. Numerous apps give both the customer and the company freedom to operate without the need for live operators or by visiting a local store. Simply opening the text message puts them onto the company and the deal immediately. Text…

  • Tailoring your Text Marketing Messages

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:38 am
    Customers want to feel like they are an important part of your business. To increase engagement, text marketing messages should be tailored to the individual consumer, rather than to a group as a whole. It isn’t always easy to make such a transition, especially considering that all customers have different needs and desires. The fact that each customer wants that feeling of being special, however, is one in the same. When you can master tailored messages, you will keep the customers that you have and will better attract new names your way. List segmentation, as the process is known, divides…

    You already know what a QR Code is because you have probably rolled your eyes more than once after seeing one on a restaurant menu or billboard. But if you don’t, originally developed by the Japanese automotive industry, a Quick Response Code (QR Code) is a machine readable code that can store data. Frankly, I would be impressed if the average American has scanned more than one QR Code in their lifetime. Even that scan was probably just for novelty. The running joke around our office is the only people who ever scan a QR Code are those people making sure it works before sending it to…

    Let me set the scene briefly. There is nothing like the attachment we have to our smartphones. We can forget how important our one-touch lovers are to our lives, our business, and our emotions. In one minuscule, seemingly insignificant moment in the cosmos, we can lose that which binds together the fabric of our entire beings. This happened to me very recently, to a degree which I hadn’t experienced before.

  • How Foundr Built a Digital Magazine With Over 100,000 Downloads in 15 Months

    Marcus Taylor
    28 Sep 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Marcus’ intro: Earlier this year I read ‘Thick Face Black Heart’ by Chin-Ning Chu on Eastern business philosophies. One of the concepts from the book that’s stuck with me is the idea of leapfrogging. In Western cultures, we subscribe to the idea of ‘climbing the ladder’ or ‘working our way to the top’. In some Eastern cultures, there’s an opposing belief – that you can leapfrog to the top. A few months ago, I met Nathan Chan at an Elance/oDesk launch party in Melbourne. Nathan’s a young entrepreneur who has leapfrogged his way to…
  • 19 Implications of Google Glass & Wearable Tech on Marketing

    Marcus Taylor
    21 May 2014 | 5:51 pm
    Since 2009, investors have poured over half a billion dollars into wearable tech startups. This isn’t surprising when you consider that wearable tech (including smart glasses, watches, and fitness bands) is still an early adopter market and already estimated to be worth $3 billion. In 2016, estimates suggest that 100 million wearable tech devices will be shipped. That’s ten times the number of devices expected to ship in 2014. So, how does this affect our jobs as marketers? What might we be doing differently in 2016 or 2020, if wearable technology reaches the level of adoption…

  • 11 Essential Tips for Mobile App Marketing

    Marcus Taylor
    30 May 2013 | 4:43 am
    There are over 800,000 apps available in the app store. The bar for standing out is exceptionally high, which is why it’s fundamental for mobile app developers and entrepreneurs to have a strong mobile app marketing strategy. Here are 11 tips for marketing your app online. #1 App Store Optimisation (ASO) Both Google Play and Apple’s App Store algorithmically prioritise certain apps in search results based on a variety of ranking factors (ratings, tags, screenshots, app title, download data etc.).

    13 Oct 2014 | 4:42 pm
    With App Store reaching 1.2 million apps, everyone seems to be out there to build the next Instagram, Uber or Facebook. However, only very few startups seem to achieve a growth needed to become a multibillion dollar company. Today, tech news are full of billion dollar valuations and huge successes in the world of startups. The way media glorify startups like Facebook makes many people believe the huge growth is a result of great idea or ability to enter the market first. The reality is different – Facebook wasn’t a novel idea nor the first to market, it came after Friendster and…

    Entrepreneurs like to discuss ideas and society regards them as the core foundation of successful startups and innovation.

    7 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Permission marketing is the idea that marketers should engage meaningfully with their potential customers. Instead of spamming them with marketing messages, startup founders (and even business marketers) should create content that’s valuable to their consumers. Whether that means educating them, starting a conversation, or finding a deeply personal way of connecting with a consumer, companies should engage with their prospects instead of shouting at them to buy a product. Well-curated content can form a key advantage for startup teams that are cash poor: it’s a good way to create…
  • Talk to Your Customer – Running a Customer Development Interview

    30 Aug 2014 | 1:30 am
    Customer Development Interviews have constant relevance for your startup. At an early stage, Customer Development Interviews first enable you to ensure that you’re actually solving a problem for someone. They then allow you to hone in on that person’s pain – after you’ve identified a target market with a problem, you’ll need to know how much they care about that problem, and why you will matter to them. Startups typically solve a problem for one persona first – that’s not a typo, a persona is an idealized ‘character’ used to make it easier to imagine the type…
