Apple vs. Android, Which Side Are You On?

By Vasim 6 Comments
Apple vs Android. A debate that has been around for the better part of the decade. A debate that eclipses all others including Cox Internet Plans vs Comcast Internet Plans, mayo vs peanut butter and Coke vs Pepsi. Its often very hard to answer any of those questions. People choose on over the other based on their personal preferences. As iOS users and they are loyal to Apple. Ask Android users and they maintain it’s the best user experience. In this blog, we won’t be promoting one over the other. Instead we will be looking at certain key areas and how both Apple and Android perform in those areas.


Security

Security is an area in which Apple has the clear advantage. Its not completely impregnable but last year only 0.7% of global malware threats were aimed at iOS. This is partly due to the fact Android has more users but also due to the fact that Android is an easier target. Android users also tend to not be regular about updating their device, leaving it vulnerable to hackers. 

Customizability 

This one is a win for Android. Androids offer customizability in everything from lock screens to fonts. You can add or remove widgets as you please, changing the interface according to your preference. Each Android manufacturer has its own specific ‘flavor’ of the operating system, but all are fully customizable. Android allows you to tailor the user experience to your taste. On the other hand, its much harder to customize your experience on iOS since Apple holds its control measures very close. 

App Quality

Apple wins overall in the quality of apps you can download. Many apps are not available on Google Play due to concerns over piracy. Apple also has a stringent guidelines developers have to follow before getting their app approved. This ensures a measure of quality control across all the apps available on the Appstore. Apps on iOS tend to run smoothly, with fewer bugs and crashes than Android apps which don’t have the same quality. Android apps tend to have less effort involved in them because Android users tend to prefer free apps. 

Privacy

Privacy is a key area in which Apple is the clear winner. Apple has always been providing end-to-end encryption for iMessage, passcodes and fingerprints that are hard to break. Additionally with Touch ID, Apple became the first smartphone manufacturer to use Secure Enclave in its processors. Essentially, Secure enclave is a subsection of the processor which stores fingerprints and other security data. What this means is that if you own an iPhone 5s or above, Apple itself cannot break into your phone. 

Usability

This one is sort of a tie between the two. For someone who’s going through their first smartphone experience, Apple would probably seem to be the most user friendly. An average person accumulates around 20 plus apps and games on their phone which can affect user experience in Android phones. Too many apps can cause Android phones to become laggy and crash-prone. Apple keeps your phone running the same way it did on the first day even if you have 100 apps. Then again, Android offers the better user experience with its flexible interface controls. No clear winner here, its all dependent on what fits best with you.

Pricing

Android wins it when it comes to pricing. Android phones are much cheaper than Apple by far. Apple only has a small number of good phones and they are available at higher prices. Conversely, Android manufacturers tend to come out with smartphones of varying price ranges. When buying an Android phone, you can choose one according to the budget you have.

Innovative Hardware

Android is again the winner is in this category. Since there is fierce competition amongst Android manufacturers, they tend to go the extra mile to differentiate their brand. This has resulted in a range of innovative hardware features that you cant find in iPhones. Some examples are VR sets, IR blasters and dual SIM capabilities.

Specs

This is again an area in which Android is the clear winner. Android takes the lead in specifications like display resolution and touch screens like the AMOLED display. This makes for much clearer and sharper displays. Android phones also have better camera quality, storage capability and battery life than iPhones. With the advent of NFC, Android have stepped up their compatibility game when it comes to interacting with devices nearby.

There are tons of other areas in which the two popular operating systems compete. Both have specific strengths and weaknesses. While this blog can’t conclusively settle this debate, it hopefully gave you useful information to make your own decision. That means we can now shift our focus to other debates, such as the Frontier vs Comcast one.

Use Virtual Office Software for a Greener Planet

By Vasim 4 Comments

Nowadays, it’s cool to be concerned about sustainable environment. But more importantly, it is inevitable to be concerned about sustainable environment as it is the only way we can ensure a safe environment for our generations to come. While there are many obvious ways that are advocated for reducing the CO2 emission, there are some subtle lifestyle changes that can also make a drastic difference if made on a large scale. One of them is using a Virtual Office Software and reaping its many benefits that actually reduce the CO2 emission and help us save our planet.


Virtual Office Software and lifestyle change

Today, there are many Time Tracking Software that are changing the way we work. The knowledge worker of today prefers to work from his home by relying on unfaltering connectivity and collaboration tools. If the trend becomes permanent, more and more people would want to work from home and in turn reduce CO2 emission in the following ways:

1. Working from home means no need to drive to the workplace. It means that not only time but also fuel is saved when you work from home. Hence, you save your share of fossil fuel burning.
2. When remote workers are hired, the employers do not need to maintain a workplace. This means that extra electricity is not consumed. This cuts down the cost of electric bill. This also cuts down out usage and hence dependence on production of power through during of fossil fuels. Hence, less CO2 is emitted.
3. When remote workers stay at home, they collaborate and communicate through email and other digital form of communication. No paper based formal memoranda are sent out regularly. Since, Project Management Software take place of physical Project Management, less paper is used, less paper is wasted and less paper is recycled. This is good news for trees and certainly for us humans as well.
4. Remote workers spend way less in maintaining an up-to-date wardrobe. They don't mind working in their PJs as well. This laid back lifestyle choice means that there is less dependence on industries like fashion and makeup. A person opting for such a lifestyle will be doing his part of cutting down CO2 emission.

Conclusion

Time Tracking Software and Employee Monitoring Software are often endorsed to help businesses, boost productivity and increase profits. But a much nobler cause is often overlooked, that these software help in taking a step towards a Greener Planet.

How Technological Advancement is Going to Shape The Future of Video Gaming

By Vasim 8 Comments
The rapid advancement in science and technology has revolutionized the world of gaming. Among other things, the improvement in technology has also exercised a profound influence on gaming. With portable devices like mobile phones and PSP, you can amuse yourself by playing games at anyplace of your choice. Gone are those days when one used to play black-and-white games “like pong” and “monster maze”. This is the era where artificial intelligence (AI) has made a successful break-through in the gaming world. Undoubtedly, the gaming industry is hard hit by the technological evolution!

It is amazing witness that some of the modern games have evolved to such a level that they provide the players with more-than-real experience and they would continue doing so, to the point when the experience becomes unbelievable!

Video Gaming

“It’s a matter of immense pleasure that the gaming industry is always heading forward, always challenging its limits” says john Anthony from Game Period. Let’s explore various ways in which the advancement in technology will influence the future of video gaming:

Virtual reality

3D technology has existed since a century ago but it was not used in the gaming world due to its exorbitant cost. It’s until recently that 3D technology has surfaced not just in the movies, but in modern video games to. The elevation has reached to such a level that one has difficulty in differentiating a game from a real experience. This can be called an incredible achievement that has brought great happiness to amateurs! What the future has in store for the players after 3D?

Peripheral screens for gaming

As the portable devices like mobile phones, I pods and tablets (among others) have been accessible to the masses, the console battle between the 3 prime companies (Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft) has augmented that that will make a major breakthrough by formulating peripheral video games for the contestants.

Smart glass

Microsoft is not ready to stay behind in the competition as Sony has devised an Xbox “Smart glass”. This feature provides you with an extra tool that allows you to have an enhanced and amplified experience!

Sony Cross- play

Sony has taken a stride forward and has decided to coalesce play station 3 consoles with their portable devices. This feature allows you to halt game on one device and start playing on the other device.

Open source gaming

It’s good to have cheap home-made mobile games that have captivated the participants. For instance “samurai vengeance” is an android powered game that is accessible to the mobile users. The companies are promoting the concept that games should be low-priced and affordable to buy.

Cloud gaming

As the internet connectivity and speed has become faster and reliable, the era has of cloud gaming has dawned that gives you quick access to latest video games. Now you don’t have to wait for the updates in order to play supreme-quality video games. All you need to have is a reliable internet connection and you can play the latest games available to your heart’s content!

It gives me great joy that the gaming industry is making its way to an unknown territory, always making attempts to transcend its limits and. Let’s see what the future holds for us!

Relation Between Games and Studies

By Vasim
This infographic explains why games should be added in the educational syllabi. Nowadays, children are grown up in an environment where they develop a continuous sense of affiliation with the modern technology and gadgets; therefore, whenever children see such things, they feel at home with them. On the other hand, if children are given formal books at very early age, not only this would be troublesome for them, but it will also reduce their learning to a minimum because they aren’t accustomed to learning from books. The most important thing that we need to consider is that games are user-friendly educational technology which children love. Their familiarity with the games urges them more and more to play games.

It is not just a blind belief that games help children in their educational pursuits, but is also proved by different research. One prominent among them is the research made by Paul Howard Jones, who discovered that how exactly games help children to increase their creativity. The most important reason behind this is that games increase the level of dopamine in the brain, and dopamine is associated with creativity. Dopamine is also associated with making connections between neurons in our brains. Thus, the stronger the connections are, the easier it will be for us to remember things. The second important attribute of dopamine is that it increases our concentration level. Thus once all these connections are created in the brain, they make the physical basis for learning.

Another important reason why games should be added in the educational syllabus is that games motivate children. It is an acknowledged fact that we do things efficiently that we like because we are motivated by our desire. In a similar manner, as children are motivated by games, this motivation can be channelized in a positive manner for learning. “When students will play games, they will be making different actions, and if some action goes wrong, they will develop the ability to accept things instead of blaming others or throwing accusations at others,” says Kyle Ward who works at Game Period. Thus, games, in the longer run, will make them responsible persons.


Games are also responsible for the skill development in children: for instance, when children play games, they develop many important skills like problem-solving, collaboration, negotiation, and communication. All these skills are very important for their practical lives. There are different types of games available for children of different ages.

5 Reasons: You Are Not Making Money from Your Blog

By Vasim 3 Comments
Is it accurate to say that you are concerned that you are not profiting from your sites despite your genuine endeavors? Also, there are loads of components hindering your psyche to proceed. There might be different motivations to keep your sites from winning cash, which may restrict your perspectives. On the other hand it may be that you are turning out badly in your preparing. Whatever it may be, here is the gathering of 5 likely explanations to get free you out of the hang-out.

1. Your blog is not audience oriented:

Each of us is caring about ourselves in the world. Think thus in the field of your audience. Compose your blogs by keeping in view of the attitude of the audience and not of yourself. All those are busy to solve their problems, and your blogs would be engaging regarding this.

Your blogs would be recommended by your readers if they find something interesting in your pieces. Arrange for something to get them stuck to your blog. The more you are audience-oriented, the more it would help you to have good traffic.

You Are Not Making Money from Your Blog

2. You are not having enough knowledge about your audience:

If you are not conscious enough of your audience, you would not be able to plan for the procedure in a proper way. For instance, some prefer visual format while some would like to go for audio format. Some may also go for only text pieces.

If you are able to know your clients well by studying their problems, you would use their struggles as your ideas. For this, you can arrange for signing up for newsletters and offer them welcome emails, which should include ‘feedback’ option. Thus, you would be able to get closer to your readers.

3. Bloggers do not know what and how to write:

If you are new in launching your blog business, you should get well-acquainted to what you should write. You should be aware of the engaging topics to draw good traffic. At the same time, you should focus on what you are interested in and feel comfortable in writing those.

Acquire enough knowledge to write your pieces. If you are expert in various topics, it would do well a lot to you. Moreover, it happens bloggers do not know how to make money from their blogs. So, they need technical support in the field of writing, creating, and designing blogs.

If your content is the king, then your website serves as the queen. And both of them should be attractive at the same time. You should create and design your website in such a manner that your audience can be attracted easily. Your website should have a presentable look with your own expertise.The cause lies in that there are many professional care-givers, which help to design and boost your website. And you should hire web masters in an effective manner. There are also some sites offering tools for free to create your website. But, you should obtain knowledge regarding web-building and development so that in absence of your web-master, you can manage the problem accordingly.

Besides, the home page on your website should properly guide the audience. Arrangement of pages should be done in proper order to meet the requirement of the readers. But, do not misguide them. Try to be precise and to-the-point. You should be caring about the information your blog provides. Always stick to right and up-do-date details. Perform several edits before posting your content on the website. You should also be careful about grammar and spelling. Do the punctuation properly, as it matters much in conveying your message. Avoid the mistakes while typing. Make the rough sketch first. After that, make sure of the ideal content.

Be the judge of yourself. Go through your pieces several times. And watch how every time your content receives a modified touch. It is very essential for drawing more views and maintaining the good-will of your site.

4. Bloggers sometimes can’t show and market themselves:

If you do not show yourself properly, people would not have faith in yourself. It might be that they like your writing style. And with your visibility and contact details, you can gain the credibility much better. To do this job, you can leave a head shot on your site.

An ‘About Us’ section may also be created to make them more aware of your background. You can market yourself through your social networking sites. Finally, always create original content. Make yourself free from plagiarism. Try to make unique content.

5. Your blog is young:

If your blog is a new one, you may have problems while showing your talent to your audience. As readers rely on mostly surfaced and old websites, you may face difficulties with your new brand. So, sell without being a sales-person and increase the visibility of your website.

Mobile App Reviews: How It Help You to Find the Best App?

By Vasim
The main objective of writing a mobile app review is to provide details about your app, so that the reader knows in-depth about your app, its feature and working.  It is not compulsory to write long descriptive reviews about your app, however, people likes to read reviews which is written in brief and to the point.

The review should provide enough details that the user knows the benefits it will provide, if he/she downloads that app.  Over the next few sections, I will now focus how the mobile app review helps you to find the best app.

Mobile App Reviews

As we know for one purpose we have many apps that work the same. The decision to choose the best among the various other app depends upon 3 things:

1. Is the app free or priced?

As per human psychology, they first search for an app which are free or at least provide free trail? The user will rarely download your app first if they see the same app being offered for free.  It doesn't mean that only free app is going to rank well over the priced one.  If your app is free, it is a good point and if your app is priced you need to first create a brand awareness about your app by offering a free trail period.

You need to also check what price you are quoting for your app is really fair to the user or not. As user always compares the app price and select the one which comes in their budget. So be fair enough to price so that no user says that this app price is higher as compared to another app.

2. What type of consumer review the app has- Positive or Negative?

After checking whether the app is free or priced, user reads the consumer reviews for sure. They never buy anything online, unless they read reviews from online review website. So your app needs to have more and more positive reviews.  Even if your app has negative reviews, you need to add your reply about that review. If that negative review is about your app drawback or non functional property about the app or function, you need to work on that and reply back with a solution.  Make sure that the people leaves reviews about your app after they had downloaded the app. An authentic review through G+ or Facebook profile makes the user believe that these are real consumer reviews from real consumer.

3. How the app review is written – Technical Term Review/ User Friendly Review?

After the checking the above 2 points, the user is almost convinced to download the app. But, before the user download the app he/she always go through the app review.  Here your role comes to write a user friendly review by not stuffing your review with all technical terms. If the user is reading your review and you have stuffed your review with all technical terms, he/she will get confused to download your app or not. Even after you app got passed through the above 2 checkpoints, your technical review can make the user not to download your app.

 Must Read-  Website Design Strategy to Increase Conversion Rate

So, what you need is to write a user friendly mobile app review.  Here are the few tips which will help you to write a great user friendly content and also help consumers to find the best app for their need.
 
•    Your Title
This is the main center of attraction in your review. Try to be precise by just keeping your title to be what your app name is.
 
•    Introduction Line
The very first line after your title should be small (2 or 3 lines ) introduction about what your mobile app is all about. What does this app do? How can this app help the user?
 
•    Feature Section
Add your app features in simple user friendly language. Try to write in bullet points with all unique features at the top.  If any feature term is new with your app, try to explain that feature in easy language.
 
•    Specification
Don't mix your app specification with feature section. State your app specification in different heading. You can also specify version and other technical details over here.
 
•    Special Points and Screenshots
Try to add special points about your app that will set you apart from the market. You can add few screenshots that will help the user to have a view and feel about your app look and other feature before they download it. These screenshot should be of high quality and clear. The screenshot will lure the people to download your mobile app.
 
•    Pros and Cons About the App
Try to add this section in your mobile app reviews. As people tend to know about the pros and cons any app has. Be true to user and write the authentic details about your app.
 
•    Chat and Support
This part is mostly not available in the reviews. However, you should provide details about online support to user. You should provide email ID or phone number to contact your team if any user is facing problems with your app.  This will build trust in user that if the app is not working they have contact details for getting in touch with the app development team.
 
•    Conclusion part:
Try to summarize your app details in the conclusion part. This part should be very precise and should sum up the app in just 2 lines.
 
•    Ending lines:
Try to add ending lines in your reviews. The conclusion is not your ending lines. Ending lines are link saying people to express your review by writing reviews about the app after downloading it. These ending lines urge people to first download it, then use it and if you like it leave a review and share this app in your friends group. This is also a unique way to get promoted at the end.

Conclusion:
