     Photo app-maker Cooliris just announced that it has been acquired by Yahoo. The company was founded in 2006 and was initially known for creating a “3D wall” for navigating photos and other media content. More recently, its focus shifted to an app (also called Cooliris) that allowed users to browse photos from across services like Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr. It also launched… Read More
  • Samsung asks the US government to block NVIDIA's chips

    The patent war between NVIDIA and Samsung isn't going to wind down any time soon. Samsung has backed up its countering lawsuit against NVIDIA with a US International Trade Commission complaint asking the agency to block imports of NVIDIA's GeForce graphics chips and Tegra mobile processors. While it's not clear just which parts are under scrutiny, the dispute names a slew of third-party device makers who'd have to stop selling hardware in the US. Most of them are video card designers, such as Biostar and EVGA, but the action would also affect Tegra-based gadgets like OUYA's mini console and…

     As Greg Kumparak noted in the TechCrunch review of the Nexus 6, the phone is very large. Too large, in fact, for most humans. Back when it was just a rumor that Google would be picking Motorola to provide the Nexus 6 hardware, and that it would indeed be a monster with a 6-inch display, I lamented the phabletization of the Nexus line before it was even a real thing. Now, I’ve had some… Read More

    The AWS-3 auction on Monday surpassed the FCC’s minimum target of $10.5 billion. The auction has raised $16.4 billion so far through 15 rounds. UPDATE: Already, the AWS-3 auction is the FCC’s most successful auction ever, reports FierceWireless. After just six days of bidding it has raised more than $24 billion in provisionally winning bids, surpassing the $13.7 billion raised during the AWS-1 auction in 2006, and the $18.9 billion raised during the 700 MHz auction in 2008. Now some predict the AWS-3 auction could raise more than $30 billion (which it did easily the next day).

    Earlier this month, Google Maps for Android received the requisite Material Design update and tacked on in-app restaurant reservations for good measure (in the US). A new version is rolling out, and with it comes some handy features to lend a hand with those navigation needs. The app will display time, weather and a smattering of facts about your destination in addition to letting you know exactly how much time that alternate route will save. In addition, Maps can show or hide traffic with a simple voice command, should you need to sort the info without futzing with that handset. Version 9.1…
  • Amazon Fire HD 6 review: great value for a $99 tablet

    Dana Wollman
    21 Nov 2014 | 9:00 am
    Here's a question: How did Amazon know it was time to make a $99 tablet? Because of focus groups? Its ace marketing department? Close: user reviews. Let's not forget that Amazon is best known for its retail empire, so when lots of people start buying cheap tablets, the company catches on quickly. And when shoppers start giving them lousy user reviews, well, Amazon notices that too. After reading lots of write-ups from disgruntled customers about tablets with chintzy build quality, the company decided it could do better. The Fire HD 6, a 6-inch tablet priced at $99, is the company's cheapest…
  • Next Glass takes the guesswork out of beer and wine shopping (update)

    20 Nov 2014 | 9:22 pm
    Have you ever walked into a beer or wine store only to be overwhelmed by the vast selection, including many options you'd never even heard of? We've all been there, but there's a new app that should help recommend options you've yet to taste. Next Glass uses your phone's camera to scan a bottle before offering you a score as to whether or not you'd like it. Based on ratings submitted the first time the app gets fired up, and scores continually added along the way, the software uses its so-called Genome Cellar to sift through a beer or wine's chemistry and predict your taste preferences. While…
  • Google cuts a deal over old Nortel Networks patents

    20 Nov 2014 | 5:06 pm
    Remember the Rockstar Consortium? The group was formed by a handful of tech giants (including Apple, Microsoft, Ericsson and Sony) to buy a treasure trove of patents and promptly sue both Google and some Android partners, which promised one of the bigger legal battles in recent tech history. Well, it's not going to be as dramatic as first thought -- Google has agreed to settle its part of the lawsuit. The terms of the deal aren't available and will take a few weeks to hash out, but it's likely that Google is forking over some cash to Rockstar given that Cisco did the same earlier in November.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, Elon Musk is working with WorldVu Satellites which proposes to deliver Internet access across the globe. A network of 700 satellites in Low Earth Orbit would use the Ku band (12/14 GHz) to deliver broadband to end users. Industry officials estimate that it would cost $1 billion or more to develop the project. Musk is working with Greg Wyler, a former Google executive and satellite-industry veteran. Wyler founded WorldVu Satellites which controls a large block of radio spectrum in the Ku band. WorldVu hopes to bring the cost of manufacturing the satellites…

    Verizon and AT&T, the largest wireless carriers in the US, are using “supercookies” to track users, but they could be a boon to advertisers, hackers, says C/Net. Cookies can be used to remember the information about the user who has visited a website in order to show relevant content in the future. Many websites use cookies for personalization based on users’ preferences. They’re commonly used on desktop browsers, but mobile phones and tablets generally have not used them. “You’re making it very difficult for people who want privacy to find it on the…

  • The Basis Peak’s heart rate monitor now works with third-party apps

    Roberto Baldwin
    20 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    The Basis Peak doesn’t try to replicate a smartphone on your wrist. Instead, it’s meant mainly for fitness and sleep tracking. To that end, the company announced today that the health tracker will now share heart rate data with third-party fitness iOS apps like Strava, RunKeeper and Endomondo. Unlike other health trackers or smartwatches, the Peak constantly monitors your heart rate without the wearer having to enable the feature. The feature uses the Bluetooth GATT protocol to share data with the apps, and Basis has a page where it will list compatible iOS apps. As for Android apps,…

    Nearly a year after the first case of Ebola was reported in West Africa, the epidemic still rages, having claimed more than 5,100 lives to date and acknowledged as the largest outbreak in history. Local governments, international organizations and aid groups – to list but a few – are scrambling to put together a coherent and effective response to the crisis; both preventative and treatment-based. One group making a significant contribution to the Ebola response – but with little publicity – are telecoms companies across Africa, who are leveraging their existing infrastructure, data,…

    Rory Conaway

    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…

  • Retiring the term “Telco-OTT”. "Digital services" is useless too. Long live “Telco-Apps”

    Dean Bubley
    16 Nov 2014 | 2:06 pm
    I’ve long railed against the telecoms industry term “OTT”, standing for “over-the-top”. It is pointlessly divisive and arbitrary, and often said in a pejorative fashion, by people who don’t understand what it means and implies. On Twitter, I’ve often called for people using the term OTT in a serious way to be summarily fired for gross incompetence by their employers. (Given that many of the worst offenders are themselves CEOs, this is impractical, unfortunately). I generally prefix it with “so-called”, or use quote-marks, to give it the disrespect it deserves. “OTT” is…

    There are numerous 5G-requirements/use-cases documents being circulated by mobile vendors, industry bodies and governmental organisations. For example, 4G Americas recently put out a top-level white paper listing a variety of possible user- and network-functional options for consideration, based on the expected devices and user scenarios. There are some very sensible conclusions – such as limiting the provision of complex mobility functions to those devices or contexts that actually need them. There is no point having complex, expensive and battery-consuming cellular mobility signalling…

As a result, it should come as no surprise that “resistance to spam and irrelevant messages are two reasons why mobile consumers fail to engage with mobile travel ads,” according to the researchers behind a new study. The study in question, carried out by mobile research firm On Device for mobile marketing company MobPartner, is based on a survey of 1,000 mobile users in August.

As marketers, brands, advertisers and media companies become more familiar with programmatic media buying, there are still some who are not utilizing it to its full potential; thus not optimizing their campaigns and ROI as effectively as they could be. When buying programmatically, one must figure out if it will be effective for their specific campaign(s) that they’ll be running, be open-minded about new ways of advertising and have a solid marketing plan going in to it.

    Most smartphones these days are more or less identical at first glance: a rectangular slab, the entire front of which is taken up by a screen, and maybe one physical key. The major differences don’t become apparent until you actually turn a phone on. BlackBerry Passport But with the Passport, BlackBerry is looking to make a bold impression the moment you set your eyes on its new flagship. Featuring an unorthodox square display and a trimmed down physical QWERTY keyboard, there’s no denying that the Passport is unlike anything else out there. The question is, does different…

    There have been lots of phones like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Phones designed to be not too small but not too big. Phones built with smooth metal around chamfered edges. Even phones made to signify a sea change for a given company. Samsung Galaxy Alpha The difference is that none of those other devices come from Samsung, a manufacturer that, despite some recent struggles, has still staked its claim in more pockets than any other phone maker in the world. When an entity that massive even tinkers with its fundamental design philosophies the way Samsung has here, people are forced to take…

    11 Nov 2014 | 8:55 am
    Doubtless some users of the venerable iPhone 4s are nervous about installing iOS 8.1, but our testing indicates that doing so is both safe and practical. A Safe Plan Apple iPhone 4s There were quite a few headlines about bugs in iOS 8 in the days immediately after its debut. Fortunately, the worst of the problems were, for the most part, taken care of by the release of the follow-up version. Which isn’t to say that iOS 8.1 is completely perfect today. However, we’ve found that these aren’t the kind of issues that cause day-to-day problems. Simply put, installing this upgrade will not…

    22 Nov 2014 | 1:17 pm
    Moto X 2014 Android Lollipop Update Review is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile. I’m not so much a fan of Google’s Android operating system as I am of Motorola’s Moto X 2014 flagship smartphone. I purchased the Moto X 2014 in the hopes that the Moto X 2014 Android Lollipop Update would make me an Android fan though. Having come from the cleanly designed, Windows Phone operating system, on paper the Moto X 2014 Android Lollipop Update should have made a believer out of me. There’s a new design language that runs throughout the operating system. Google calls it Material Design.

    In case you haven’t noticed, the holiday shopping season is here (a week before Black Friday, no less). In fact, some say it’s been since September. That’s when countless retailers started stocking the candy canes, Santa-saturated wrapping paper, and display shelves of fleece slippers, leather gloves, and sweaters. A full 42 percent of retailers ramped up holiday advertising in early fall, long before the pumpkin-shaped Halloween peanut butter cups were sold out. So what can we expect for the holidays this year? For starters, optimism. Fully 86 percent of retailers are…

    Americans still seem addicted to the flat screen TVs that often eat the better part of the family room. But in China, consumers are moving faster to become what the industry calls “cord cutters” — ditching televisions to watch video and film via smartphones and tablets. New research from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) makes it clear that these devices have become the dominant venue for videos: 71 percent of China’s mobile-savvy consumers watch full length TV shows straight on mobile every week.

    The Canadian Technology Accelerator just hosted a panel on #Trends2015 that featured, not surprisingly, information on some of the biggest global digital marketing and advertising trends to look out for in the coming year. Frankly, most of them have already been in the news of late quite often, but a trend it is a trend and, in 2015, the trends with which we’re already family will continue. In other words, trends that continue will be a continuing trend in 2015. That may read like a headline in The Onion, but it’s true, as The Huffington Post recently chronicled in some detail.

    If you’re one of the many mobile marketers in the U.S., there’s good news regarding the Hispanic demographic. Analysis of the 52 percent who are comfortable making mobile purchases shows that U.S. Hispanic consumers are likelier than their non-Hispanic counterparts to buy via smartphone or tablet. The research, conducted in August, discovered that approximately half of U.S. Hispanic mobile buyers had purchased clothes, electronics, music, or movie tickets within the past month. Conversely, non-Hispanic mobile buyers were dramatically less inclined to make such purchases. Some…

That's mainly because carriers and consumers have long been concerned with what kinds of streaming data can be pulled down from the network to mobile devices. However, chipset suppliers are starting to herald the importance of increasing uplink bandwidth for applications like cloud data uploads and video calling.

    22 Nov 2014 | 9:00 am
    It’s interesting what is going on in the wearables camp. There are two separate factions – fitness bands and smartwatches, both claiming to do just enough of the other to make the other not necessary. FitBits, and Bands, and 360’s abound in the wearables circle. Most of the time, we here at Pocketnow talk about the watches more than the bands, but there is that other camp that keeps hanging around so let’s step aside for a moment and examine.Health and fitness trackers have made a bigger boom in the industry than smartwatches to date.

    No one likes a back seat driver, constantly nagging you to slow down, mind that bus, stop crashing into trees – pfft – what do they know? Flo is nothing like this – the app keeps quiet and just monitors your driving, quietly assessing you as opposed to judging your every bloody gear change. It’s main is not to criticise you, but to help you become a safer driver, which in turn saves money on petrol and overall maintenance costs that come with owning a car.

People always talk about how phones and tablets are replacing desktop and laptop computers, but can they really be considered a suitable replacement if they can’t even properly display the millions of websites that…

In other words, it sounds like Google will have to keep data on what you search for separate from all of the other services it offers, such as Gmail, Google Maps and more. It also sounds like Google would be prohibited from giving favorable treatment in its search results to its own services. RELATED: Google is…

    Nokia caused a stir this week with the revelation that it would return to the consumer hardware business with an all-new 7.9-inch Android tablet called the N1 which, it has to be said, bears a striking resemblance to Apple’s iPad Mini – even down to the milled aluminium, rounded corners, and the appearance of the volume buttons, speakers and charging port. In fact it’s almost impossible to tell the two tablets apart; a canny move in a market flooded with cheap Android tablets which all look and function the same. The N1 is expected to launch in China by February…

The Wintab 800W is built on Intel’s low-cost reference platform that you’re going to see in a lot of $99 Windows tablet offers this quarter so what you see here applies to many other models. The issue is that with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage you simply can’t approach them as Windows PCs. Working in the desktop means running out of RAM and disk space quickly.

It’s made possible by a low-cost Intel System on Chip and tight motherboard integration, low-cost storage and the removal of the fan. Just 32GB of SSD storage is offered so there are some limits to how you can use the ES1.

The 812 gram fanless tablet  (1.79 pounds) is not as light as the ASUS Chi but at around 600 Euro (based on one online pre-order price)  it looks like a good value and yet powerful 2-in-1. A 1366×768 screen might put off those thinking about replacing a laptop for productive use but there’s a nice feature in the docking-keyboard drive-bay. ASUS Transformer Book T300FA runs on Core M A few noteworthy take-aways from the review include the relatively slow eMMC disk speeds.

    Social Barrel - Social Media News, Technology and Marketing Tips Facebook last Tuesday announced the launch of a new app designed to make it easier for users to interact with groups they are already a part of on the world’s largest social network, which has over 1.3 billion users in the world. Facebook’s new app comes with a powerful notification controls and a group discovery section. The good thing is that users won’t be compelled or forced to use it as the group feature will stay in the Facebook app. Perhaps, I should just add that Facebook won’t also fast-switch you either.

This blog analyzes the road accidents that happened in the UK, and the contributing factors, for the years 1979 to 2013, based on the data published by the Ministry for Road Transport of the UK government. Let us take a look at the year-wise trend of the number of accidents. The overall trend is a decreasing one.The number of accidents shot up to 3.2 million in 1981.

    For many, an ideal business would be one which grows steadily year after year, chasing the dream of monopolizing their market. They would love to become an irreplaceable constant for their customers in an ever-changing world. However, in the process of growing, many businesses lose what they were loved for. In the long run, this loss would become a key factor in their downfall. For businesses, it might be better to be the king of a small kingdom, rather than a large collapsing anarchy. Would you prefer a slow steady stream, or a large unreliable downpour?

  • Nokia N1: Dual Impact

    Sameer Singh
    19 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    Finland's Nokia made a surprising move this week as it announced a new Android 5.0 based tablet, coined the Nokia N1. Just to be clear, this is from the company that remains headquartered in Finland and not the "Devices & Services" division that was sold to Microsoft (now called Microsoft Mobile). This announcement caught most observers off guard and could have some interesting implications.First, this announcement doesn't really mean that Nokia is back in the consumer hardware business. This is because Nokia seems to have licensed their brand, industrial design and interface (Z-launcher)…

    11 Nov 2014 | 10:37 am
    Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported some of Xiaomi's financial metrics from 2012 and 2013. The two most interesting data points were the proportion of Xiaomi's revenue from services (~1%) and their sales and marketing costs.While we already know a fair amount about Xiaomi's services ARPU, the business still accounts for a small portion of total revenue. And even though their hardware business is profitable, their valuation is based on the long-term potential of their content & services business (not app distribution). Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Xiaomi is looking…
  • Mobile & Payments

    5 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    Over the past few weeks, the tech world has seen a controversy erupt over retailer resistance to Apple Pay and other NFC based mobile payment systems (like Google Wallet). The short version is that retailers are interested in pushing their own (poorly designed) payment alternative that circumvents fees collected by companies like Visa and Mastercard. Interestingly, this controversy seems to obscure the fact that we still aren't sure what consumer benefits are targeted by mobile payments.In my opinion, if mobile payments are to reach mass-market acceptance, they need to target a use case that…

    Yesterday, Facebook announced their financial results for Q3 that showed mobile advertising revenue rising to almost $2 billion, almost 60% of their total revenue. This growth wasn't just driven by mobile MAUs, but also by mobile ARPU (shown in the chart above). In a way, this growth explains why Facebook isn't as concerned with Whatsapp's monetization, at least for now. Facebook also revealed some metrics for Whatsapp, which should help us understand their strategy.One way to benchmark Whatsapp's performance may be to compare it to the gold standard in mobile monetization -- LINE.This chart…

    I have never written about Twitter because I always considered it to be a simple consumer service, with a simple monetization model, i.e. it was never particularly interesting. That changed this week when Twitter unveiled Fabric, an SDK for app developers, which takes their business model in a slightly different direction.First, let's get this out of the way -- Fabric isn't a single SDK, but a set of independent tools that target different use cases.

  • Foxconn spending £1.6 billion to make a display factory just for Apple?

    21 Nov 2014 | 7:40 am
    Foxconn has reportedly agreed to spend £1.6 billion on a new facility intended solely for crafting displays for Apple’s products. For as long as we can remember, Apple has been plagued with supply and demand issues, with new devices selling out within days of release, followed by weeks of waiting for new stock. Therefore it's no great surprise that Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturing company which assembles Apple products, has announced that it plans to spend a cool NT$80 billion (£1.6 billion) on a factory in Taiwan, most likely dedicated to the production of its Innolux displays for the…

Motorola has had a banner year and no device exemplifies the company’s rise back into the big leagues better than the Moto 360 smartwatch. The watch has so far been a big hit, so much so that Gleb Mishin, Lenovo’s Eastern Europe Vice President, has hinted that the company could already be planning to release a follow-up very soon. According to Redroid, Mishin revealed during a recent Q&A what the second-generation Moto 360 would offer. We're unsurprised to hear that the…

  • How To Brainstorm Keywords For Your App

    Sylvain Gauchet
    11 Nov 2014 | 10:27 am
    Guest post by Evaldo Rossi (WordData). App Discovery is one of the biggest issues the App Store has. iOS 8 kind of tried to solve this problem; but the sheer size of the store, with more than 1.3 million apps, will always make app discovery a difficult process. Another factor that contributes to this situation is the search engine. Search in the App Store is primitive; it still depends on a Keywords field and the keywords found on the App Name, the Publisher name and the In-App Purchases display names. That’s why Keyword Optimization, or KWO, is so important in App Store Optimization…

App Store Reviews: The undiscovered world How many companies – and not just in the app industry, would say no to a substantial number of free, unsolicited, unpromoted customer opinion surveys? Not many, right? But that’s exactly what we’re doing as an industry, on an almost wholesale level. I’m talking, of course, about user reviews and the enormously valuable information they contain. It’s only the most progressive, or the richest companies that are investing in review mining. Why is that? I guess it has to be because the perceived value of…

    Lately I have been thinking a lot about safety.  I couldn’t tell you exactly why it has been top-of-mind for me, but I think it has to do with some of the following facts: We are officially now in the winter months. This means taking extra care when driving, making sure our vehicles are winter-proofed (winter tires, safety kits, etc, etc.) among other cold-weather survival tactics! I am new home owner so I am always thinking of safety in terms of home security, making sure that ice on the driveway is melted so no one slips, and  always checking our fire and carbon-monoxide detectors.

And this week (Nov. 18), Mark Troselj, NetSuite's managing director for Asia Pacific/Japan (pictured below), wrote an article for arguing that Aussie businesses needn't be crushed by Amazon; rather, they can beat the e-commerce giant at its own game.

  • Daily Dose of iQ: Cash Dash App Lets Retailers Lure Customers via Geolocation

    We’ve blogged about price comparison sites/apps in the past (e.g. Greentoe this summer; Amazon’s Price Check app was a big one in 2011). Cash Dash's goal is to help retailers steal shoppers away from the competition. Today, WIRED wrote about "Cash Dash," a new app from Wanderful Media that puts a different spin on price comparisons and discounts. Instead of users having to search what they want to buy and from where, the app allows retailers to push price comparisons/discounts to users phones based on their location: namely, when they're shopping at competitors' stores. “When you’re…

  • Daily Dose of iQ: Apple Pay a Clunky Experience for Walgreens Customer

    Allan Pulga
    19 Nov 2014 | 2:20 pm
    Full disclosure: A few weeks ago, we blogged about the differences between Apple Pay (NFC) and CurrentC (which uses QR codes) mobile wallet technology. I dismissed CurrentC at first glance, but apparently Apple Pay at Walgreens isn't "magical" either. Without ever having used either payment method here in Canada, I judged CurrentC based on its instructional diagram (seen here), noting that its dependency on QR codes made it look "complicated and annoying." It may very well be so, but a recent article in VentureBeat said the Apple Pay implementation at Walgreens isn't exactly "magical" either.

  • You’ve Built Your App. Here’s How You Market It

    Nick Kolakowski
    28 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    It takes blood, sweat, and tears—or at least a whole lot of programming knowledge, late nights, and energy drinks—to build a good mobile app. With all the energy devoted to bringing something new into the world, however, it’s sometimes easy to forget that the world won’t see your creation unless you spend an equal effort in marketing it. Every so often, an app builder gets lucky, and their app goes “viral” (a good candidate for 2014’s most overused term) without the need to spend so much as a penny on ads. But for everybody else, the cost to acquire a “loyal user” (i.e.,…

    After six years, do you think the number of submissions to the App Store has stayed level, climbed, or fallen? As demonstrated by this chart of the App Store’s metrics (hat tip to Pocket Gamer), the number of submissions per day continues to rise, likely driven by a combination of new apps and updates of existing apps. (There was also a surge over the summer as developers prepared for the launch of iOS 8, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.) As of October 2014, developers submitted an average of 1,227 apps per day to Apple, up from a mere 32 per day in mid-2008; Apple…

    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.

    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…

    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…

    Dustin Curtis on Amazon Echo The media strategy that seems to be driving Jeff Bezos to make mobile consumption devices (with Amazon’s media stores and Prime video/music) is flawed. No one makes money selling media for consumption anymore. That market is quickly and brutally dying.@dcurtis… The only explanation I have is that Jeff Bezos wakes up in the morning and says “We have this money to spend, we can’t throw it away so let’s build something”. I dealt with long distance voice recognition in the past and I know for a fact that…
  • Fear of the App Store

    Cesare Rocchi
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:03 pm
    As I’ve mentioned in previous emails, I fear App Review. And that’s no small thing. So many decisions I make end up being filtered through whether or not I think something might get rejected. Which has a profound impact on my team’s entire development process …@drbarnard… Is this sane to you? Not even a bit to me. And yet you have to be paranoid about whether Apple will approve your app, especially if you are going to include an offbeat feature. This is even worse. Contractors may steer their clients away from taking risks.@drbarnard…

    The recent adventures of PCalc widget leads me to subscribe to the following statement. The bottom line is that if I were an iOS developer, I would be leery of investing significant resources into a Today View widget.@TidBITS… Unless you have time to explore (and see how it goes) DO NOT EXPERIMENT on the App Store. Do you have in mind a new feature? Toss it out as quickly as you can, submit it and see how it goes. DO NOT PUT SWEAT AND BLOOD IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE NOT SURE IT WILL BE APPROVED.

  • Bikes must stay outside

    28 Oct 2014 | 3:24 am
    We are having a sunny October over here and I enjoy biking to pick up my kid at the kindergarden. There’s a gate with a bell. You ring it, say who you are about to pick up and they let you in. The kindergarden is surrounded by a beautiful garden, so from the gate to the actual building there’s a short path. I got there, rang, waited for the gate to open and biked to the building, oblivious of what I just did. I parked the bike by the door and got in, happy to pick up my kid. The janitor approached me with a severe look: “Bikes must stay outside of the garden”“I…

With the launch of iOS 8.0, Apple brought App Previews to the App Store. These 15-30 second videos allow you to show off your app in a more dynamic and engaging way.

  • 5 Edge Case Strategies For Getting More iOS App Downloads

    Sensor Tower
    6 Nov 2014 | 4:01 pm
      Edge cases are situations that are outside the normal range of operation. For example, turning your sound system up to maximum volume is an edge case for the speaker manufacturer. Most people don’t use their speakers in that way. But if the speaker manufacturer accounts for this edge case and design their speakers operate well at maximum volume, that would set them apart from the competition. In App Store Optimization, there is a core set of keyword optimization strategies that all app publishers should implement. But there are also some edge case strategies that not all…

But unlike traditional smileys that are made up of a sequence of letters like , every emoji has its own letter.
