Let’s put an end to all your curiosity and present to you the future of mobile technology which we and the coming generation are going to witness.

‘Augmented Reality’ Close To Reality

Now that Virtual Reality is making news everywhere, Augmented Reality is the next one in the line. Using the GPS on your smartphone to find the nearest restaurant or places of interest is a cliché now. Augmented Reality will enable users to find them offline just by activating their camera. Yes, this is going to be this easy. In the next few years, this feature will undergo many new transformations to give the user more relevant search results. Combining computer data and fetching it to the users in real time will be a challenging task, though, but nevertheless, it will pave the way for mobile app development.

Foldable Flexible Screens

Tired of carrying your large screen Smartphones everywhere? Why not fold it? Yes, the dream of carrying that large screen smartphone will finally come true as foldable screens will come in the near future to make your phone pocket-friendly. The Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) technology will make this possible. This means you can view from both sides of the phone and perform dual activities from both sides. If accepted well, by the masses, it can further evolve into a wearable device. Imagine you are wearing your smartphone on your wrist. An interesting concept. Isn’t it?

Advanced Voice Control

The voice recognition system will now be at its best. Many researches have been done in order to develop the quality of voice, but time and again it has proved to be a hectic task. Just as Siri introduced the system of voice recognition by interpreting the diction and syntax of the speech, in the same way, use of a natural user interface at a more advanced level will overtake the current way of communication. Seamless voice control will emerge as the next voice control app. Such kind of feature will increase the interactivity as far as Smartphones are concerned. Thus, this mobile technology will certainly prove to be the best.

Moving Beyond 3D Screens

While Apple has raised the bar with retina display, the introduction of 3D screens have brought forward crystal clear screen display by enabling the user to view from three dimensions. The more advanced level of viewing experience beyond 3D could be the use of holograms. This could totally change our viewing experience in a smartphone. Integrating the movements along with the 3D displays will allow you to compress or adjust the size of your pictures just with the help of a single touch.

Can Cloud Migration Lead to Business Transformation? A Brief Overview

The usage of storage has moved beyond personal purposes today. It is slowly making an entry in the corporate world and is making a significant contribution to an all round development in the information technology sector. Leveraging the multiple benefits of cloud computing, organizations are moving towards adopting advanced technologies, which is leading them towards a rapid phase of web design and development.

Switching to cloud enables an enterprise to deploy applications faster, respond to the customer requirements and meet with their growing demands; at the same time, it can also respond to any opportunity. In fact, a survey done by KPMG found out that 42% respondents wanted to use cloud to improve their workforce, whereas 37% of them wanted to use it to communicate clearly with their clientele.

Shifting the underlying servers to the cloud might cause a discrepancy in the user experience, but this will definitely be fruitful in the long-term. Currently, Saas (Software as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) are the happening services in the industry, but now the trend is currently shifting towards the Paas (Platform as a Service) model.

The spectacular benefit that Cloud has offered to the corporate sector is noteworthy.

Necessity Of Cloud In Today’s Changing Business Scenario 

Cloud computing is more than a necessity to a business house today. Integrating it with the functionalities of a company is thus necessary, but how does it produce the fruits of benefits for your business is really a matter of concern. Now, let us see how cloud computing is like a golden egg put in a farmer’s basket for a business.

Flexible To Use

Apart from cost cutting, an important concern that bothers large organizations is to increase their capability and operations in order to cater to the demands of customers. Opting for a cloud architecture reduces the hassle of using physical servers to transfer data easily. One doesn’t need to depend on the applications or software anymore. The scale of operations can easily go up once you opt for the cloud services.

Faster Deployments

Though the use of cloud might not have a direct impact on the performance of the application but one can realize the benefit of them very easily. Now, one can create environments much faster. This will be beneficial for the developers as they can devote their time to productive work. Cloud Applications are meant to ease the process of web development.

Less Dependency On Servers

‘Cloud,’ the name itself signifies huge storage whether it is about storing sensitive information of the organization or any other important documents. One can cut down administrative expenses to a large extent in the data center, redeploy servers which previously hosted applications but have now moved to a shared model basis. Whether you want to develop or test a mobile application, Cloud computing is just the perfect choice.

Reduce Manpower

The robustness of cloud computing is such that it reduces almost half the size of the manpower. Since the number of servers is reduced, it requires lesser manpower to be deployed which ultimately leads to cost cutting. So, if your’s is a company which is planning to make cuts in the manpower, then cloud computing is the ultimate solution.

By now, you must have come to know the role of cloud in today’s emerging business. It would not be wrong to say that cloud migration leads to business transformation.

Don’t Make These Mistakes While Migrating To Cloud

While migrating your business to cloud computing, it is very obvious that you might make some mistakes that might not be intentional. We do not want that you should commit the same mistakes and will, therefore, let you know those mistakes so that you can avoid them.

At first, it is important for you to know what type of cloud is your organization going to use. Remember, there are four types of clouds that one uses.

1. Private: This is made for private organizations and can be built either on site or off site. Such type of cloud services offer infrastructure services and virtualized applications.

2. Public: Such cloud computing services can be accessed by anybody and is normally owned by a third party.

3. Hybrid: They are a combination of private and public. While an organization can maintain all their data in the private cloud, on the other hand, it also provides access to other cloud computing services as well, which can be accessed by anybody.

4. Community: This is shared by a number of companies within the same industry. Any expenses related to the cloud are distributed within the users. A community cloud is hosted normally by third parties.

Now, that you are accustomed to the kinds of clouds available, let’s delve deeper and know about the mistakes which one does while migrating to the cloud.

Mistake 1: Selling Off Existing Hardware

Once you have shifted to the cloud, you normally tend to throw them off or remove it entirely from your office premises, but this is a wrong thing to do. The market for used computers is worth $300 billion, so why not earn some revenue?

Mistake 2: Shifting All Apps To Cloud

Migrating to the cloud doesn’t mean that you will have to shift all your apps to the cloud. It depends on the industry and its requirements, which decide whether they are to be migrated to the cloud, or not. A healthcare organization in the case should study their requirement first and then decide whether to shift their app to the cloud or not.

Mistake 3: Not Making The Apps ‘Cloud-Ready

Is your app cloud ready? this is the first question which you must decide while shifting to the cloud. Make sure that your apps run equally well on the cloud server like the way it runs in an in-house data center by accessing the entire computing power.

Mistake 4: Not Doing Your Homework

You have to be aware of the IT requirements of a cloud before you go for it. Once you are confident about your infrastructure and usages, then you can decide which cloud you want to go for – Private, Public or Community.

Mistake 5: Not Paying Attention To Big Data

Big enterprises are often skeptical about the large chunk of information they have in their database. The problem arises at that time when the size of data exceeds terabytes. Well, the solution, in this case, is to transfer all such data to the cloud.

Keeping these five things in mind will make you aware of the various strategies you should adopt in order to avoid the mistakes.

What, When And How – A Collective Guide To A Mobile App Startup

The mobile application industry is driven today by the need for big data, business intelligence, and analytics, as per a report by Forbes. The more tactical and strategic the app will be, the more will be its demand in the market. With rapid advancements made every day, it is quite evident that there will be more demand for such apps in the time to come. In order to live up to the growing demands of mobile application around the world, there is no wonder about the fact that many entrepreneurs are coming up across the world by setting up their own mobile app startup.

If you are a budding entrepreneur, who is planning to start his or her own enterprise that makes a mobile app, then we are here to help you out with some basic things, which you must know and be aware of, once you start the business. At the end of this blog, you will come to know about the what, when and how facts, related to a startup of a mobile app development company.

So, let us take a look at the various factors which you’ll have to take into account when you are all set to launch your mobile app business.

Difference Between Native And Cross Platform

It depends on you which platform do you want to develop the app. Remember that whatever platform you choose has got its own set of coding rules. For an iOS app, the platform will be Objective – C, whereas for android app development, the platform will either be Java or HTML. If you are doing it for the first time, then it is recommended that you start testing it on a single platform. As far as multi- platform development is concerned, you can start it later.

Proper Platform Selection

Remember, you have App store, Google Play, and Windows store to upload your apps. So, it depends on you where do you want to see your apps. Apple always pays more to those who want their app to be downloaded by charging fees. If you want to upload it on Windows store, you might not be able to earn much revenue. Google Store can be the ultimate solution in this case and poses a challenge to iTunes. As a newbie in the market, it is recommended that you put your app for sale on the app store.

Create Flawless Designs

Designing is not a rocket science or a big task as you always think it to be. Include pixel-perfect graphics for all the images to be used in your app, use big buttons and icons, test your design in multiple formats such as X HDMI, hope, dpi and make sure that your icons and fonts should always be big irrespective of the screen size. It is always a wise decision to hire an expert designer first and then decide the final icons or layout.

The Secret to Retain Clients

When you are in the mobile app development business, the best way to retain your clients is to make simple applications. Refrain from including annoying pop-ups in between apps, or else, if you really want to include the ads then ask the permission of the users on the app description page itself. Keep updating your app after taking feedback from them about the app. The last thing to remember is to keep the process of login as easier as you can. Even a simple Facebook login can be of help.

Apply Clever Marketing Strategies

When it comes to marketing, use the four weapons of product description, brand awareness, SEO and intelligence gathering. Instead of simply writing about your app, write a persuasive sales letter that will pique interest among the readers. As far as intelligence gathering is concerned, follow what your competitors are doing. Promote your mobile app by sharing it on social media platforms as a brand. Try to provide as many backlinks as possible for your app.

Monetize Your App

Now there are three ways to monetize your app – sell the USP of your app, give it for free download or sell it in an app store at a fixed price. Another interesting way might be to have two versions of the app which are the pro version and the free version. You can charge for the pro version and allow the other version for a free download.

Factors That Could Pose As A Hindrance

Since you are starting out your venture for the first time, you might make some mistakes, which can cost you dollars. We present to you some of the factors that could limit the growth of your mobile app startup.

Authenticating A Mobile App With Mobile Web

Most of the entrepreneurs who are new in the mobile app industry often make the mistake of authenticating a mobile application through mobile web. It is important to understand here that the speed and functionality of the mobile app are impossible to match with a mobile web. One may find a mobile website while browsing through the Google search results, but a mobile app is confined only within the walls of Windows, Android, and iOS. Hence using a mobile app through a mobile web will give you wrong data.

Ignoring The Core Features In The First Version

Merely including a handful of features in an app is not something that people would expect from an app. What the user is really concerned about is to the extent to which the app solves the problem. The core feature of your app should always focus on solving the problem of the user. Once you are able to incorporate that it will become easier for you to sell your app.

Choosing Cross Platform

It is no doubt one of the best platform for developing an application, but if you use such technologies then the most important thing which you will miss is the satisfaction in user experience. It is important to understand that there lies a difference in developing an app using one’s own platform and using a third-party app. Moreover, when you are developing a mobile app on your own platform, you can independently rely on the developers to fix any issues or bugs.

To Sum It Up…

Starting a mobile app business is not a risky affair at all, but at the same time, you have to keep in mind not only about the budget but develop the app that solves the problems of the user who is going to make use of it.

How Native Cloud Improves Your App Architecture

The term ‘communication heavy internet services’ might sound alien to you, but not too big IT giants like Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft. In fact, the term can be termed as a source of revenue generation for them. The gradual shift from display-based information through programs to browser-based information has a huge role to play in the age of digital transformation. As we are blazing forward in this age software based technologies, data is becoming outdated and is in dire necessity for usage of more sophisticated storage platform.

The challenges prevailing in the online industry are being replaced easily with cloud computing. This rapid development is characterized by advancements made in technology such as the introduction of more disk storage, faster internet access, and inexpensive servers. All of these are pushing the concept of cloud computing forward in such a way that by 2020, the cloud market is going to earn a revenue of nearly $55 billion as per a report published by International Trade Administration.

Native cloud apps, the new name in the mobile app development world is of immense benefit from the developer’s perspective. Apart fro 

1.  Automatic Management Of Resources

Any third party application, the resources that are to be used in making an app are provided to the developers. A native cloud application enables a developer to take advantage of the resources as they are automatically available. With self-service, programmatic provisioning and on-demand allocation of resources all critical business application run quite smoothly. Such kind of application can handle the task of pooling the resources, managing the data analytics very swiftly.

2.  Easily Manage Business Needs

There is an ‘auto scale’ feature, which is available in the native cloud applications. In case of any emergency situation such as a complicated up down process, it enables the enterprises to come up with a solution easily. Hence, by paying only for computing resources, an enterprise can provide backup for its business needs quite easily.

3.  Minimize Risk Failure

One of the powerful benefits of using such kinds of apps is that they can tackle outages and make corrective actions in case of app failure. The application processing moves from one data center to the other without causing any disruption in the service and the surprising thing is that the user doesn’t even come to know that whether there was even an outage or not while running the application.

Cloud Native Apps And App Architecture

There is a direct co-relation between native cloud and the architecture of an app. These two often prove to be the best combination and help to develop an app in the most sophisticated manner. Now let’s see how do they help to improve an app’s architecture.

1.  Advanced Frameworks

The infrastructure used in a native cloud app is based on container driven architecture and highly automated infrastructure. This is the reason why the software runs so easily which is developed with a native cloud app. The basic mechanism that works behind this is the single code base that helps to organize from many environments using a single codebase. Moreover, the presence of cloud as a platform helps to declare the dependency in a more organized manner.

2. Better App Run Times

What makes such apps a hot favorite is the use of the containers. Being lightweight by nature, such apps work well in a cloud-ready environment by improving the resource efficiency as well as fastening the process of mobile app development. In the development stage, the presence of a container reduces the time of a developer to write codes and create a developer oriented cloud apps. Thus, a developer can have full control over the resources each time he or she develops an app.

3. Improved Infrastructure For Automation

The robust automation process of native cloud apps does everything starting from updating routers to provisioning services by deploying apps and managing the log aggregation activities. It also serves as an excellent platform for managing the elasticity of the computational resources. These advanced automation practices help the developer to avoid the extra task of deploying each node of the app infrastructure.

4. Complete Control Over Documents

As far as data security is concerned, cloud computing is no doubt the ultimate solution as it helps to protect your data in a safe manner, but did you ever wonder how it helps to improve the security of an app. All the important documents related to a mobile application development are stored in the most secure manner in the cloud. Since the files are stored centrally in one server, it streamlines the process of development. No matter who accesses the machine of your organization, you can be at complete peace.

It is due to the looming deadlines of clients that makes a native cloud app so much popular. Since the architecture of an app plays a key role while making one, it is vital that one should make use of the most robust technologies and dynamic databases that are supported by cloud.

The Future Ahead

As far as the software delivery capabilities are concerned, cloud-based native applications will help to transform the capabilities of an IT organization and help it emerge as a strong player amidst the competitive market. Developers are the ones who will be benefitted the most with such kind of technologies. Hence, a bright future lies ahead for native cloud apps.

Android Studio 2: Adding Power To A Developer's SDK

As per a report, on the first quarter of 2016, 17.2 billion apps were downloaded. Out of those, 11.1 billion were Android apps. Though most of these downloads mostly comprised of games, but the figures prove the growing popularity of such android apps all over the world today. Developers are looking for more advanced tools to create even more inspiring and engaging apps, which would be of use not only to the masses but to the businessmen as well and benefit the human kind.

As far as android app development is concerned, it’s the kind of infrastructure that a developer makes use of which boosts the power of a mobile application. In technical terms, the tools which a developer use is commonly referred as SDK or Software Development Kit. It is the secret for creating phenomenal as well as high-performance apps for Smartphones, tablets, Android wear or Android TV.

Android Studio 2.0 , the official IDE from the giant has everything which a developer cannot even expect from any other SDK. Everything which you need to develop an android app is available in this latest version starting from code analysis tool to emulators and code editors. In this blog, we are going to enlighten you about the various benefits and how it adds more power to a developer’s software development kit.

New Features With More Power

A bunch of new and powerful features of Android studio 2.0 makes it the ultimate choice for the developers. Let us study which are those.

Instant Run For Instant Results

The whole purpose of this latest tool is to increase the developmental work of an application. The ‘Instant Run’ is a new feature that lets the developers accelerate the speed of running, building and editing the cycles. It injects the changes made in the code by implementing it in the app running process. Thus, you do not need to reinstall or redeploy your APK. It can work with any kind of android device that runs on API 14.

Android Emulator For Faster Deployment

Just like a nitrox in a vehicle, the emulator speeds up the performance of the CPU, thereby making it work 3 times faster. In fact, when you include ADB, the speed increases to a whopping 10 times faster. Apart from the speed factor, the new emulator also has sensor controls and brand user interface. A host of new capabilities has been added this time to the emulator such as the facility to drag and drop the emulator for faster installation, make use of many touch points and rescaling the window.

Cloud Test Lab For Robust Testing

Android Studio 2.0 makes the process of testing, one the application is developed. It makes your app run through a series of tests along in Google’s own products. It makes sure that your app does not crash. Moreover, the interface of the Android Studio 2.0 is also such, that it can configure all the tests that have been done on Cloud Test Lab. Google views it as an extension to all the testing processes so that it becomes much easier to perform the tests in all kinds of devices including Smartphones and Tablets.

App Indexing For URL Generation

People looking for your android app in the store will find it more easily. With proper app indexing, Android Studio 2.0 enables you to rectify the URL structure in the app code and lets you add any kind of attributes in the AndroidManifest.XML file. Once you finish adding the URLs to the app, you can validate the app indexing code and start the testing process. One interesting thing about the app is that you can check the validity of the app with the help of the index code, which you have used in the Android Studio.

Debugger Preview For Clear Graphics

While developing applications for graphical apps, you will now get a GPU debugger with this latest version of Android Studio. It enables you to do a frame-by-frame check. This allows you to find any bugs related to graphics and gives you more information on GL.

Future Updates And What To Expect?

On June 2016, Android Studio 2.1.2 was released. Though there haven’t been any notable changes in the update, but only three key updates were made which are given below:

Robustness of Hybrid Mobile Application Development And It’s Utility

The use of a mobile application has reached to such a stage today where people are not merely concerned about the functionality or the usability of the app, but they are looking for something more engaging. In other words, we can say that even mobile applications are in a dire necessity of sophistication. Well, having said that it would not be wrong to claim that technology is slowly overtaking the app world to make applications that enhance the user experience.

Hybrid mobile application – the new name in the mobile application development is all about elevating the experience of the user as we have mentioned in the previous paragraph. According to a Forbes report, 79.45% of the people all of the world use Android and 16.4% of them use iOS. These statistics pave the way for the need of such an app that will help users to access it more from their mobile phones and a hybrid app does just that.

Now, let us explore further the world of hybrid apps.

The Power of 3

It’s HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that form the ingredients in forming a hybrid mobile application. The use of web technologies, allows a developer to use JS libraries. Such apps are hosted within native applications, which take the help of a mobile in order to give the user a perfect web view. One of the greatest benefits of such an app is that it makes the app capable of using other capabilities of a device such as a camera, APIs, and accelerometer (which cannot be accessed normally by a website while running on a mobile).

Usefulness Of A Hybrid Mobile Application Development

So, does the combination of three technologies embedded into one app offer any benefits? Well, there are a number of benefits, which you can avail once you make use of a hybrid mobile app. Let us take a look at them:

  1. Low-cost solutions: Unlike in a native app, where the developer had to make two separate versions of iOS and Android, going for a hybrid app helps you to get such an app that can be used in both kinds of mobile operating systems. Hence, you end up saving a considerable amount of expenses in mobile application development.
  2. Fewer requirements: You can use one language, C# across multiple platforms such as PhoneGap or Cordova. It gives a native feel to your app. Hence, you do not need to learn separate languages for iOS or Android.
  3. Greater Integration: A hybrid app makes use of the programming language of the device itself in order to keep it in harmony with other applications. It means that it will work well with your messaging systems cameras as well as GPS.
  4. Unique User Experience: A website might open differently on different systems. The same things also happen with a mobile web. Once you make a hybrid app, you let the user make use of the app in a better way. A single update will help you to fix any kinds of bugs.
  5. Faster performance: Even without any network communication, hybrid apps work much faster than a native app until and unless it requires very high-quality graphics.

Mechanism Behind Javascript, CSS And HTML And Its Usage In A Mobile App

The combination of all the three means that it becomes easier for the web applications to work as one doesn’t have to switch between browsers and can avoid the hassle of changing the code every time. In the next paragraph, we will take a look at how a hybrid app exactly helps to develop a superior app.

The introduction of the new CSS and HTML 5 elements helps to adjust various resolutions that run on hybrid apps. It serves the purpose of managing the images in a website with proper resolution. Some of the important benefits that this kind of app has to offer are resizing the image from the server side, solving CSS media queries, setting HTML 5 srcset attribute and adjusting the resolution of independent images in SVG format.

An interesting feature to note here is that the CSSS3 media query works best for uploading logos while using the hybrid app by applying the following code.

/* Normal-resolution CSS */

.logo {

width: 120px;

background: url(logo.png) no-repeat 0 0;

}

/* HD and Retina CSS */

@media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.25),

only screen and ( min–moz-device-pixel-ratio: 1.25),

only screen and ( -o-min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.25/1),

only screen and ( min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.25),

only screen and ( min-resolution: 200dpi),

only screen and ( min-resolution: 1.25dppx) {

.logo {

background: url(logo@2x.png) no-repeat 0 0;

background-size: 120px; /* Equal to normal logo width */

}

}

Ionic and Firebase: A Perfect Choice For A Hybrid App

Do you know that even Ionic and Firebase can team up to make a robust hybrid app?

At UIPL, we develop a hybrid application with Ionic and Firebase. Ionic, takes the help of AngularJS library and uses it as a JavaScript library to create single page applications for mobile and the web. On the other hand, Firebase saves a considerable amount of time for the developers with its cloud-based platform that is further implemented on the web as well as mobile applications. Using both of them in the form of a hybrid app fastens the development process if you want to make an app using Cordova or PhoneGap.

Combining Firebase with Ionic

In order to make use of Firebase, it is necessary to create an account in it and then make an app that gives a new URL to you. Since Ionic is based on the AngularJS, it is important to include scripts in the library. Use the following script below in order to do that.

<!– firebase & angularfire libraries –>

<script src=”lib/firebase/firebase.js”></script>

<script src=”lib/angular-fire/angularfire.min.js”></script>

You can now inject firebase in the mychat module like this

angular.module(‘mychat’, [‘ionic’, ‘mychat.controllers’, ‘mychat.services’, ‘firebase’])

In order to built real time mobile applications that run on multiple platforms, it is important to take help of robust technologies such as Ionic, Corona, HTML 5 and CSS. As a mobile application development company, we are an expert provider of developing hybrid based mobile apps. Hence, if you are want to develop such applications, all you have to, is just drop an email at sales@unifiedinfotech.net and we will get back to you.
