What is the Future of Social Apps?

Written by on Monday, November 30th 2015

What a world we live in. Not too long ago, all cellphones could do was make calls, send out a few lines of text, and play simple, monochromatic games like Snake (though, let’s be honest – no mobile game has ever been better). Then, in 2007, came Apple's iPhone – this weird, newfangled device that many people initially scoffed at – and the entire mobile industry has never been the same. Thanks to the popularity of the iPhone, countless companies followed suit and soon rode the touchscreen smartphone wave, which pushed what Apple was initially going for into several bold, new directions. 

Nowadays, people are more connected than ever. The proliferation of smartphones with advanced mobile internet capabilities has made sure of that. And with the ability to easily and quickly download countless social apps with tons of rich media features, getting in touch with friends, family or colleagues has become more than just typing out simple messages. 

You can share photos, videos, life events, play games with friends, chat in real time, engage in video calls, and so much more. With a plethora of powerful social features already at any mobile device owner's disposal, one has to wonder: has the envelope been pushed as far as technologically possible? Where is all this headed?

Everything you need to know about Beacons!

Written by on Monday, November 16th 2015

Beacons have been around for quite some time now and are gradually becoming a part of marketing strategies for some of the biggest brands out there. These tiny devices are as powerful as they are mysterious, but one thing’s for sure, they are introducing a new way to buy

By blending the digital and physical they are taking the user experience one step further, providing a very flexible approach to displaying information about products, the layout of the store or even discounts. Everything is possible, for any kind of business.

A few weeks ago we explained how you could implement this technology inside your app thanks to our iBeacons Add-On. A breakthrough update since we believe Beacons are an incredible asset when it comes to developing your business ! However, we are well aware how intimidating these devices can seem at first, so here is an Infographic which will give you an overview of what you need to know about Beacons and how they operate, which should help you overcome your hesitations!

Written by on Thursday, November 12th 2015

There are all sorts of Apps out there in the stores, but what part does "content" play? What’s the public appetite for Apps with a lot of content?

One could be quick to pin down App users as hurried consumers who don’t stay for too long in one (virtual) place. But, a recent study issued by the Yahoo Developer Network seems to hint at the contrary.
