How to create the perfect app

Android App Copyright – Respect Content and Don’t Steal It. Video

July 22nd, 2015 1 Comment »

You are in the process of creating your own Android app. I am going to put emphasis on the words ‘YOUR OWN’. This means that the app should contain YOUR OWN original content.

If I got a dollar for every time we have been contacted because app makers have decided that it is viable to violate copyright laws and use someone else’s content in their app without permission, I would be a very rich person.

Guys, it is NOT fine to find online content and pass it off as your own.

Creating content from scratch is not that difficult.  Not only does it show that you are original, but it also shows that your brand is one that can be trusted.

Original content will help you rank higher in search engines. Google has a way of finding duplicate content, and punishes pages by reducing their place in search results.

Copying other people’s content may result in your Android app receiving a severe punishment from Google, meaning your app can be removed without warning.

Samsung Galaxy Dominating Summer 2015 Android

July 20th, 2015 1 Comment »

What is going on over in Android world this week? There are new products on the market, and rumors are spreading about what else Android is expected to see over the summer of 2015. Today I want to bring to your attention some of that latest Samsung Galaxy Android news.

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and 9.7

Samsung has officially announced the latest Galaxy Tab products that are expected to be on the market in the coming month. These tablets are very similar in style to the Apple iPad series in size now coming in a 4:3 resolution ratio.  Both the Galaxy Tab products are using the same chip technology as the latest in the Galaxy mobile series, the S6. They will also have 3GM RAM, with 32 and 64 GB storage options.  The Super AMOLED displays (2048 x 1536) make these devices superior to the Apple iPad. Now all we need to do is wait until August 2015 to find out how much these babies will cost.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

The Phablet series that has taken over. The Galaxy Note series has proven popular due to the size and abilities. It is small enough to not take over your bag and yet big enough to give you a pleasant user experience. The latest in the series is rumoured to be scheduled for release on August 12 2015 ahead of the expect release of the iPhone 6. With release dates for the Note series usually in September, it looks like Samsung is purposely trying to grab market share before Apple. Only time will tell if this is a wise move.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

 

Not long ago we saw the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus, and now the Edge is awaiting its turn for release.  From what has been leaked, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will be the same height as the Galaxy Note 4. However is will be slightly narrower, which will keep it in the mobile phone category and out of the Phablet category. The screen display is expected to be a whopping 5.7 inches, and it will have 32GB of storage, a 16 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The phone is expected to run on Android 5.1.1

This launch has been kept pretty much silent even though this device is amazing. It is the thinnest phone on the market, coming in at just 5.9 mm thin, and weighing just 5.3 oz. The Gaxaly A8 comes with a 5.7-inch, 1080p display and is powered by an 8-core Snapdragon 615 chip. The camera has a good quality 16-megapixel front camera and 5-megapixel rear camera. It supports 4G and, as with the latest Galaxy range, comes equipped with a fingerprint scanner and a high capacity 3,050 mAh battery.

Spending Too Much Time on Your Mobile Device? Time to Slow Down

July 17th, 2015 2 Comments »

The world is becoming more mobile and this has had an influence on the way in which we work. More and more people are turning to mobile apps for both personal and business needs, from checking emails, to conversing on Facebook and Twitter. The online mobile world seems to now be never ending.

Android App Marketing

The constant pinging and dinging from numerous apps notifying you of messages and new content is beginning to become annoying to both the mobile users and those that are around them. How many times have you seen a couple having dinner in a restaurant, all romantic, then the next second both are looking at their screens? Isn’t time that we stopped mobile taking over our lives?

What we need to look at is what is important and when is important to be mobile. There are apps out there that can help you combine your mobile life with your personal life, by freeing up your time and shortening your mobile interactions. Apps such as Buffer.

Buffer allows you to create and post links to all a range of social accounts including: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. It gives the option to schedule posts at a time you may not otherwise be available to post, freeing you up to eat your meal in peace. Buffer also offers weekly reports and analytics on your social pages, freeing up your time going from app to app analysing each of your profiles individually.

A lesser known app that has recently hit the market is everypost. Unlike Buffer, this platform also interacts with Pinterest, email and even DropBox accounts. This enables you, as a mobile user, to access one app to complete a range of tasks across more platforms that ever before. The only down side to this platform is that there is a limitation to the number of scheduled posts you can create.

Time to organize your time so you can begin to enjoy your personal time.
