A Guide to Migrating Applications to the Cloud

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of programmatic bits and bytes. That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Cloud!

As customer begin to embrace digital transformation and start to implement their previously adjudicated ‘Cloud First’ strategy the most common and important question that arises is which application should we move to the Cloud? This decision is usually not made on a single factor alone. The choice of which applications to move (and not move) to the cloud should be based on a thorough analysis of your IT landscape. Below are a set of categories and questions that will help guide your decision on application migration from on-prem into the cloud.

6 Migration Paths for Your Application to the Cloud

Enterprises need to begin their journey to the cloud by deciding how to get their application from where it lives today to where it needs to be tomorrow. From this perspective there is one key question to ask: How will you migrate this application into a cloud?

1 Rehosting – Lift-n-Shift

Every IT organization has a set of large-scale legacy applications that must have continuity maintained but cannot incur the cost, time or effort of refactoring. Rehosting is essentially a forklift approach to migrating applications to the cloud, essentially moving them without any modification.  This is an efficient non-resource-intensive migration process. Often, however, lift-n-shift migrations don’t benefit from cloud-native features like elasticity. And while they may be more cost-effective to run in the cloud than on-prem, it could be even cheaper if you were to replatform or refactor.

2 Replatforming – Lift-Adjust-n-Shift

Replatforming can be considered a lite weight or pseudo-refactoring. Instead of rearchitecting the software entirely it may be possible to optimize or tweaks basic elements of your application to operate successfully in the cloud. While this path is more glacial than rehosting, the approach offers a middle ground between rehosting and refactoring, allowing workloads to take advantage of native cloud functionality and cost optimization, without the huge resource commitment you find with refactoring.

3 Refactoring – Redeveloping an application

Rearchitecting or redeveloping an application is typically driven by business need to add features, scalability, or performance that would otherwise be difficult to achieve in its current state. This approach is the most time-consuming and resource-intensive but offers the inherent benefits of being able to leverage native-cloud functionality and maximizing operational cost efficiency in the cloud.

4 Repurchasing – Move to a different product

Most enterprise software vendors have or are in the process of creating cloud-based versions of their application. If it makes business sense, this is often a suitable way of getting your application into the cloud. If your current vendor does not offer a cloud-native solution their marketplace is wrought with competitors who likely do have an application that fits your needs, already designed to operate in the cloud of your choice.

5 Retiring – Getting rid of the application altogether

In the IT landscape there are a lot of legacy products that might be able to be replaced or remove without replacement. Once you’ve discovered everything in your environment it becomes a worthwhile exercise to determine if an application is actually needed, and if not, reitre it.

6 Retaining – Keeping the application in its current home

You should only migrate what makes sense from both a business and technical perspective. If the cost is too high, compliance is too limited, or the complexity just makes things impossible in many cases it may make sense to NOT migrate an application into a cloud. An alternative strategy would be to employ a hybrid cloud model where some of the application (or data) reside on prem but still are able to leverage the computer and elastics powers of the cloud.

Architectural Criteria

When considering application migration (not just to the cloud) organizations must review the architecture of each application and determine viability for its new platform. Reviewing the application architecture ensures that potential migration of these applications to the cloud is or is not the right decision. Let’s consider two common architectural questions.

Does your application require a specific operating system?

You must consider the obvious question, does the cloud provider you are contracting with support that OS?  While you can often upload or configure whatever you want, have some level of built-in support is important for a business-critical application. If a problem occurs, can you get assistance? What is the time-to-resolution from the point of view of the cloud provider?

Does the application have hardware or infrastructure requirements?

When it comes to public cloud providers we generally don’t have any clue about the underlying hardware. Does the use of unknown or commodity hardware pose any risk? Are there external hardware dependencies that must be in place for things to work correctly (E.G. a Load Balancer)?  Does the application have external software dependencies and if so, can this application work in the cloud without migrating all the dependencies? (E.G. NIS, AD, etc)

For operating system dependencies there is an obvious go/no-go here. If a Cloud Vendor doesn’t support your required OS then this is rate limiting. The same is true if there are hardware of infrastructure dependencies that cannot by properly setup or configured in a cloud setting.  However, a solution to these problems is often a Hybrid Cloud scenario where the dependencies can be “on-prem” and the application can still function in the cloud.

Application-Specific Criteria

One of the biggest areas of consideration in this journey to the cloud is around the applications themselves. When it comes to specificity versus universality software developers run the gambit from writing code that is highly compatible (think open-source Linux projects) to extremely specific in its requirements (think SAP). Thus, it is very important to consider the needs of each individual application from an internal operability perspective. Let’s consider these five questions.

Does the application observe consistent or fluctuating CPU usage?

Having applications that constantly run versus ones that spin up and spin down upon completion of the job can significantly change the cost analysis. For example, in AWS On-Demand instances, you pay for compute capacity by per hour or per second depending on which instances you run. Thus, the architecture of your application (including the container, VM or other higher-tier controller software) is critical to the cost-effectiveness of using a cloud model.

Does your application have latency and throughput requirements?

Public clouds can only guarantee certain levels of IOPS and latency requirements. The biggest culprit is usually network bandwidth. Bandwidth utilization increases and network links often become oversaturated, which can degrade overall application performance. Furthermore, network architectures, where the traffic is routed to a common gateway in the data center, and cloud-based applications end up traveling a greater distance to reach users when compared to on-prem.

Does your application have specific compute requirements?

Public clouds are an ideal place to garner more compute resources without CapEx expenditure. But, applications that require vertical scaling may not be suited for all clouds.  Vertical scaling means that you scale by adding more power (CPU, RAM) to an existing machine, which ultimately can cost significantly more money.

Does your application have supportability requirements?

If your application needs ongoing support, does the cloud provider meet the basic listed requirements for supportability? If so, can your (or the vendors) support team gather the necessary information and do troubleshooting when issues arise?

Are there any software licensing issues that prevent or limit cloud usage?

Some of your contracts may not address cloud computing specifically because the licensing model may predate cloud. While others offer cloud-specific software licenses which can introduce its own complications. It behooves of each IT organization to thoroughly examine the licensing models of all core-software before undertaking a cloud migration.

Business and Industry Criteria

The last and arguably most important areas of consideration around cloud migration are that of the business. Thus far we have discussed technology but that is all for not if basic business requirements cannot be met. This will include area such as business continuity, compliance and security – all of which we will discuss.

Does your application have specific backup, HA or business continuity requirements?

Clouds are fully featured when it comes to backup to be sure your RTO’s and RPO’s can be met. However, can those requirements be met within the defined cost structure? Storage space is cheap but having alternative HA sites and higher-end business continuity plans could be more expensive in the long run – it just depends on your business requirements.

Does your application (or business) have compliance specifications or requirements?

Not all cloud technologies are suitable for all compliance issues. HIPAA, SOX, GPRD or any other regulation can be met in the Cloud but must be considered and evaluated beforehand.  The first area of importance is to be fully aware of the type of cloud services that are being use. Once you have done that, you can look at the data that will be migrated. The second area of importance to look at, once you know which data you are going to put on the cloud is to look at the contracts with your cloud provider. If it is an internal cloud, are you going to have internal SLAs and internal compliance checklists? If it’s external, you have to clearly identify with the provider what type of data should reside on their cloud services, how they’re going to protect it, how they’re going to back it up and how you may reserve the right to audit that process.

Does your application (or business) have stringent security requirements?

While at a high level, cloud environments experience the same threats as on-prem data centers, they also offer a unique set of threats and risks. Those include:

  • Consumers have reduced visibility and control
  • Immediate self-service functionality makes unauthorized use easier
  • Public API’s offer an attractive target to hackers
  • Multi-tenancy increases the chance of a surface attack
  • Data deletion is unrealistic
  • Credentials can more easily be stolen
  • Cloud vendors have access to your data

By moving into a public cloud there will be some compromises on security. Taking a hard look at your application and business requirements from this perspective is a crucial step in determining cloud-hosting viability.

Wrap-up

Keep in mind that these are common, but still general guidelines, and your decision about moving applications to the cloud should be based on your own situation. However, if you apply all these questions to your application and IT landscape you will be well-positioned to know what should and should not be migrated. I hope that your move to the cloud is expedient, efficient and effective.

1) My name is Janet. I used the Telenitrox phone spy app and it provided me with useful information. I was able to use Telenitrox to confirm my husbands cheating. Before then, the monitoring app I tried could only pinpoint my husband’s GPS location. But I needed to get more information on him- not just his location, but how far he’d spread his dirty grapevine. So I swapped over to an app which monitored all of their social media activity that was taking place outside of work hours.

Best Deepfake bots on Telegram: What is it and How it Work?

3,886,426,376 Photos Nuded Now! How to set Up? Why mens used it?

Sensity company (Formerly known as Deeptrace), which specializes in AI information security, has discovered a network of Telegram bots that generate nude deepfakes based on arbitrary photographs of women. As of September 2021, DeepNude bots have generated photos of near 4.600.000+ women.

Examples of DeepNude’s software can be seen in repositories on GitHub: the incoming image and the result.

How does it work?

Over the past 4 months, the volume of orders has increased almost three times. The investigation showed that most clients are asking to take nude photos not of celebrities, but of their own acquaintances who are known in real life. It is possible that some clients of the service are teenagers.

On Reddit and other Social Media posted treads about it:

post on reddit.com

Most such messages collect a lot of interactions and comments from the audience. Many users point to poor-quality pictures. Which can’t really harm women.

Popular Deepfake Telegram Bot Names

  • @DeepNudeChat_Bot – link2 (EN)
  • @deep_nudesbot – link here (only RU)
  • @fakenudes3bot – new (ES)
  • @DeepNudeBot – is not allowed
  • @deepnudebots – is not allowed
  • @maloletki_v2 – is not allowed

A technology similar to DeepNude, the 2019 app that shut down shortly after launch, is now spreading unfettered on Telegram.

Karen Hao

This time it has an even simpler user interface: anyone can send the bot a photo through the Telegram mobile or web app and receive a nude back within minutes. The service is also completely free, though users can pay a base of 100 rubles (approximately $1.50) for perks such as removing the watermark on the “stripped” photos or skipping the processing queue.

The researchers also reached out to Telegram and to relevant law enforcement agencies, including the FBI. Telegram did not respond to either their note or MIT Technology Review’s follow-up request for comment. Patrini says they also haven’t seen “any tangible effect on these communities” since contacting the authorities.

On a local computer, DeepNude Soft requires a powerful system and GPU. However, the entire ecosystem of Telegram bots runs from online servers, so the service is available to anyone with a phone. This is one of the main reasons why bots are so popular, says Sensity.

Perhaps, this rather primitive “erotic” application was the first commercially successful application of machine learning for image processing. It reminds a joke that porn is the engine of technological progress.

A programmer created an application that uses neural networks to remove clothing from the images of women, making them look realistically nude.

That the software is based on pix2pix, an open-source algorithm developed by University of California, Berkeley researchers in 2017. Pix2pix uses generative adversarial networks (GANs), which work by training an algorithm on a huge dataset of images – in the case of DeepNude, more than 10,000 nude photos of women, the programmer said – and then trying to improve against itself. This algorithm is similar to what’s used in deepfake videos, and what self-driving cars use to “imagine” road scenarios.

(Source vice.com/en_us/article/kzm59x/deepnude-app-creates-fake-nudes-of-any-woman)

Although much of the discussion around the potential harms of deepfakes has centered on how this technology can be used to propagate political misinformation and propaganda, it appears that the threat isn’t going away anytime soon. Indeed, that was how deepfakes originally spread – with users on Reddit finding ways to adapt AI research published by academics into creating fake celebrity pornography.

Why DeepNude was created?

Alberto said he was inspired to create DeepNude by ads for gadgets like X-Ray glasses that he saw while browsing magazines from the 1960s and 70s, which he had access to during his childhood. The logo for DeepNude, a man wearing spiral glasses, is an homage to those ads.

“Like everyone, I was fascinated by the idea that they could really exist and this memory remained,” he said. “About two years ago I discovered the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and started studying the basics. When I found out that GAN networks were able to transform a daytime photo into a nighttime one, I realized that it would be possible to transform a dressed photo into a nude one. Eureka! I realized that x-ray glasses are possible! Driven by fun and enthusiasm for that discovery, I did my first tests, obtaining interesting results.”

Alberto said he continued to experiment out of “fun” and curiosity.

Update July 9 2020, 7:55 p.m EST: GitHub removed the DeepNude source code from its website. Read Why? here.

AWS launches Amazon Honeycode, a no-code Mobile & Web App Builder

AWS today announced the beta launch of Amazon Honeycode, a new, fully managed low-code/no-code development tool that aims to make it easy for anybody in a company to build their own applications. All of this, of course, is backed by a database in AWS and a web-based, drag-and-drop interface builder.

Developers can build applications for up to 20 users for free. After that, they pay per user and for the storage their applications take up.

Image Credits: Amazon/AWS

“Customers have told us that the need for custom applications far outstrips the capacity of developers to create them,” said AWS VP Larry Augustin in the announcement. “Now with Amazon Honeycode, almost anyone can create powerful custom mobile and web applications without the need to write code.”

Like similar tools, Honeycode provides users with a set of templates for common use cases like to-do list applications, customer trackers, surveys, schedules and inventory management. Traditionally, AWS argues, a lot of businesses have relied on shared spreadsheets to do these things.

“Customers try to solve for the static nature of spreadsheets by emailing them back and forth, but all of the emailing just compounds the inefficiency because email is slow, doesn’t scale, and introduces versioning and data syncing errors,” the company notes in today’s announcement. “As a result, people often prefer having custom applications built, but the demand for custom programming often outstrips developer capacity, creating a situation where teams either need to wait for developers to free up or have to hire expensive consultants to build applications.”

It’s no surprise then that Honeycode uses a spreadsheet view as its core data interface, which makes sense, given how familiar virtually every potential user is with this concept. To manipulate data, users can work with standard spreadsheet-style formulas, which seems to be about the closest the service gets to actual programming. ‘Builders,” as AWS calls Honeycode users, can also set up notifications, reminders and approval workflows within the service.

AWS says these databases can easily scale up to 100,000 rows per workbook. With this, AWS argues, users can then focus on building their applications without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure.

As of now, it doesn’t look like users will be able to bring in any outside data sources, though that may still be on the company’s roadmap. On the other hand, these kinds of integrations would also complicate the process of building an app and it looks like AWS is trying to keep things simple for now.

Honeycode currently only runs in the AWS US West region in Oregon but is coming to other regions soon.

Among Honeycode’s first customers are SmugMug and Slack.

Best Apps to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Best Apps & Online Tools for Calculating Your Carbon Footprint

This may be something that interests you from a morbid point-of-view, or something that you want to work out so that you can offset your personal carbon footprint by planting trees. Given the Western World’s appetite for fossil fuels and fast cars, it might be that you need to buy a lot of acorns!

Here are the best ways you can work out how much damage you do to poor Planet Earth:

Best carbon footprint Smartphone apps

United Nations Environmental

There are a handful of useful apps that can make your life as an environmentalist easier, but many lack solid data. This app by the UN is both easy to use and has accurate information that tree-planting organizations will find useful.

It’s getting more and more difficult to calculate our environmental footprint on the planet. Luckily, there are apps that also take care of that for you. If you wanted to know how much Amazonian rainforest it would take to compensate for your round trip flight to the south of France, this is just what you need.

Free of charge.

Zero Carbon

Learn about easy ways to reduce your carbon footprint with this app, which was developed in Chile. Join Facebook groups with your friends &amp; compare results, as well as average measurements from all around the world. You can also buy offsets directly through the app. Free of charge.

The Extra Mile

Calculate your carbon dioxide emissions before you even set off. Perhaps you’ve set yourself a limit on the journeys you’ll take? This will help you plan to avoid going over that limit or see where you can make some cuts in general.

My planet

For android phones, this app is fun for kids and adults. Visualising your carbon footprint with your own slice of the planet. Your choices and actions daily affect your planet and only you can help to keep it as green as possible. Free of charge.

Online tools

Carbon Footprint

Calls itself the web’s leading carbon footprint calculator and is for businesses of all sizes. Great for companies who want to know that they’re doing their bit for the environment. Improve your ‘green creds’ with official ratings and certificates. People like that sort of thing.

WWF Carbon Footprint Calculator

Measure your footprint in just 5 minutes with the World Wide Fund for Nature. Go through food, travel, home and ‘stuff’ questions. It’s really quick and easy and will tell you how many planets would be needed to support such a lifestyle. (For the sake of full disclosure, the author got 2.94 planets… scary!).

Direct Gov Calculator

Very nice visual calculator from the government with a tailor-made plan for you to follow at the end. It’s much more detailed than the WWF one above and takes into account fuel bills, appliances and travel. Set aside quite a bit of time to fill in the details correctly for the best use of this calculator.

How to Track your carbon footprint with apps and sites?

Becoming carbon-neutral or carbon-negative has been a goal of many companies and individuals for a long time now – we’ve decided to offset our carbon footprint by planting trees (see Ecosia) but there are other ways you can take action of course.

But how do you track your carbon footprint in the first place? Obviously, before you can offset you need to work out how much carbon your various actions emit.

Various calculators and apps are available online and we’ve featured some of the very best here. 

The best apps and sites for tracking your carbon footprint

Capture

This app enables you to track things like the type of food you eat as well as the carbon you use getting about. It can predict your mode of transport and calculate accordingly. You can also set a weekly goal to see how you measure up against friends as well as compare your own emissions from week-to-week.

There are also tips to reduce your carbon emissions, while you can also choose to offset through recognised forestry projects.

Download Capture for Android | iOS

Map My Emissions

This simple carbon calculator doesn’t enable you to track other stuff in your life like food or energy, but it does its singular job rather well – you can calculate the carbon debt of any journey by (almost) any means. 

It’s all based around Google Maps and you can feed the calculator quite granular information on your transport methods – so engine size for cars 

Go to Map My Emissions

For Good

Once you’ve created an account with this app, you’ll be encouraged to put in some personal information such as the type of vehicle you drive and whether you have solar panels or who your energy supplier is. You can also enter your gas and electricity readings. You’ll be able to see what impact each answer has. 

The app also asks you what type of diet you have and so gives you a score based on food use as well as travel and energy consumption. 

Download For Good for Android | iOS

UN Carbon Footprint Calculator

This is a simple calculator that takes into account transport and lifestyle and what’s more, it also auto-adjusts for the country that you live in as well as the number of people in your household. You can also enter the size of the house that you live in as well as different information about your diet and other factors. 

It’s certainly a good way of getting a decent understanding of how much carbon you’re using week-to-week. 

Go to the UN carbon footprint calculator

WPD Carbon Tracer

This is a bit niche in terms of area covered, but if you’re in Wales, the Midlands, West or South West of England this will show you energy generation data. However, may other energy suppliers have similar apps, too. 

+13 Green Apps For Environmentalists

Remembering to live green can go further than setting a reminder to put out the recycling, buying organic, and saving all your peelings for compost. Apps for environmentalists, it turns out, are actually a new frontier for green lifestyle, both for sustainable crusaders with all their local organic food stalls memorized, and those of us who’ve just woken up to the whole living-green thing. In case revamping your life to get a bit more eco-friendly seems overwhelming and difficult, no worries: there’s an app for that. And, luckily, it’s probably served without any sanctimony.

The diversity of green apps out there reflects the fact that there are many ways in which to eco-fy your daily grind, from commuting choices to shopping decisions to energy consumption. A lot of these suckers just focus on tracking your actions and suggesting how to make them a little greener — like taking public transport, or switching off the clothes dryer. Others are collections of ideas for improvement, or data about different places and companies.

They’re resources, not life-changers: we’re not yet at the stage where an app can sort the trash, put sustainably caught fillets of fish on the table, and convince Liz the stubborn intern to join the carpool. But that day may be coming. Until then, here are 13 apps to push you into Captain Planet mode.

1. GoodGuide (Free)

The GoodGuide is a guide to environmental shopping, but it’s not meant to make you run screaming just because you see “chemical” in the ingredients list. It’s more nuanced; letting you scan a product’s barcode or search it, then giving rankings based on health, environment, and societal impact. It can even show up more info on the parent company’s environmental policies. It’s only available in the U.S., for now.

2. Commute Greener (Free)

Commute Greener does what its name suggests, giving you tailored suggestions for your daily commute to make it as low-emission as possible — from the most efficient map routes to ride-sharing suggestions in your area. It’s also meant to make you feel mildly competitive, accumulating badges and rewards as you become as green as possible. It’s the commuting Olympics.

3. Rippl (Free)

Rippl has the potential to be incredibly annoying. It’s a curated, personalized reminder app to give you tips and tricks on greening your lifestyle, and could easily sound like your nagging (very eco-conscious) mother. That it doesn’t, and gently encourages you to incorporate small changes into your routine every day instead, actually makes it pretty useful.

4. iRecycle (Free)

This is pretty basic. If you have absolutely no idea where your local recycling facility is, download iRecycle and it’ll find it for you. You can customize your search based on what you’re trying to recycle — including old VCR tapes! — and it’ll find the nearest place for you, with all their contact information and restrictions.

Brought to you by Earth 911, Inc., iRecycle is helps you to find convenient recycling options in the U.S. It boasts more than 1,600,000 ways for people to recycle upwards of 350 materials here in the U.S. It’s a quick way to find nearby recycling opportunities, whether you need to recycle your computer, glass, construction materials, household items, and more.

This app is free on iOS and Android.

5. Carma Carpooling (Free)

Carma is a carpooling app for various parts of the U.S. that helps you find people to carpool with and makes the whole begging-for-gas-money thing redundant: every member of the pool pays 20 cents per mile using credit on their app accounts, and most of that goes to the driver. You can find strangers along your route or use it to coordinate trips with friends.

6. Leafully (Free)

Leafully isn’t designed to be complicated: it’s an energy use app that alerts you when your energy consumption is going overboard and needs to be pulled back. It can only be used on four energy utility companies at the moment, but if you’re one of their members you can use it to monitor your consumption — and, cutely, it measures your energy in trees.

7. Plugshare (Free)

Exclusively for those who’ve taken the next step and bought an electric car, Plugshare is an app-map: it plots out every electric charging station across the U.S.. Obviously, this is a massive bonus when you can’t just pull into any station you like to charge — though hopefully, that’ll be the case in the future.

8. Climate Counts (Free)

Climate Counts is an activism and advocacy app. Its database contains most of the world’s big companies, and it ranks them according to their work on climate change. Are they addressing it, ignoring it, releasing details on how green their production is, blocking environmental laws in their country? Climate Counts has the answers — the implication being that, if a company scores low, you should vote with your feet, and your money.

9. PaperKarma (Free … Initially)

If you’re being assaulted by junk mail that’ll just have to be recycled, PaperKarma is on the case. It asks users to take photos of offending mail, including your name, address, and the sender’s details — and then it does the wrangling on your behalf to get them to stop it. It’s hardly automatic, and there are charges involved, but it does seem to have a high success rate.

10. greenMeter ($5.99)

Yep, you have to pay for this one — but it’s worth it. The app greenMeter is an energy consumption tracker for your car, and it’s designed to detect and change your driving habits in order to conserve fuel. If you happen to be a fuel hog and have no idea why, calibrate the app to your driving and see what it says.

11. Pollution (Free)

Pollution is more than an air quality measuring app (though its air quality ratings cover much of the U.S. and many international destinations). It also identifies potential sources of pollutants in air, water, and soil, from factories to power plants — which is not going to give you much peace of mind, I’m afraid.

12. Joulebug (Free)

Joulebug takes the whole making-life-sustainable thing and shapes it into a game. Every suggestion about an eco-friendly habit or practice that becomes a reality is a way to earn Pins, Trophies, Badges, and other assorted goodies. You can compete with people in your neighborhood for greener-than-thou status — but you’ve got to tell the app whenever you take its advice.

13. Green Travel Choice ($1.99)

Like Commute Greener, this is an app that tries to minimize the environmental impact of your trips — but GTC, one of Commute Greener’s partners, is focused on international tourism. If you want to jump on a jet plane, this is the app to tap to make sure your worldwide travel is as green as possible. Plus, they’re linking up with ecotourism businesses to guarantee your holiday’s sustainable, too.

Light pollution is a problem that every resident of a big (and not that big) city, probably understands: just remember the last time you saw the stars at night. You can monitor the situation in your city with the help of apps for amateur astronomers. According to ItRate, this app is just for the thing – it has a large map (“The Light Pollution Map”), which you can use to assess the pollution level or, e.g., to find places where you can observe the stars. In addition, there are other functions, like NASA’s “Picture of the Day”.

You can help scientists assess the scale of the issue using another app, “Loss of the Night”, created with the participation of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany. The authors point out that this is not only about the stars in the sky but also about the resources we spend on illuminating the city; to understand what is happening where you live, you need to spend a few nights checking if you can see the constellations offered by the app.

7. Recyclebank

You can also earn discounts and rewards at retailers who participate with the app.

This app is free and available for both Android and iOS.

This is another app that helps you reduce emissions and the amount of money you spend on commuting.

Users of this app can make secure payments using a credit card, and 85% of what users pay goes straight to the driver.

Top Facebook Apps and Companies

How many companies does Facebook own?

You’ve probably heard a lot about Facebook this year. And it’s not only because it’s the most popular social network in the world, so there are good chances you use it as well. Facebook/Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal shook the world in spring 2018, and the attention to this application literally skyrocketed. 

We believe that the issue is quite serious, but there are other, more positive reasons to keep up with news about Facebook. First, it’s a tech giant, so everyone who is in this industry should be at least generally aware of what’s happening there. Secondly, Facebook’s revenue just for Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 (the last reported quarter as of the date of this article) constituted more than $117,929 billion (Y2Y +37%).

We had a solid quarter as people turned to our products to stay connected and businesses continued to use our services to grow.

Mark Zuckerberg, Meta founder and CEO

And it’s one of the Top-10 technology companies in the world. An excellent example of startup success, everyone tech entrepreneur can learn from.

In this article, we’ll take a mini-tour across the Facebook empire and talk about the most popular apps it owns. We prepared a list of top applications that Facebook owns, its features, and its peculiarities.

Meet the Facebook Family of Apps

We will describe the following:

  1. Facebook app
  2. Messenger
  3. WhatsApp
  4. Instagram
  5. Oculus VR
  6. Masquerade (MSQRD)
  7. Whale
  8. GIPHY
  9. AUX by NPE
  10. Bump by NPE
  11. Tuned by NPE

Facebook app

It probably sounds quite obvious, but we just couldn’t ignore this application that was the very first in the collection. Facebook App was created in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg and a few other fellows. As of September 2021, 17 years after the launch, the number of its monthly active users amounted to 2.74 billion. The Facebook app was the most downloaded app between 2010 and 2020 (businessinsider.com).

But it’s worth mentioning that the initial version of the Facebook app differed significantly from the one we are used to seeing today. Its name contained ‘the’ at the beginning, so it was ‘thefacebook.’ There were no newsfeed and ‘Like’ button either. So it was really a long road for the Facebook app to get where it’s now. Daily about 1.82 billion users visit Facebook.

Another interesting fact is that at the dawn of Facebook’s existence, Zuckerberg and other guys hacked Harvard’s computer system to copy some private information of the students who lived in the dormitory. So we can say that Facebook’s relationships with personal data protection were complicated from the very beginning.

This year Facebook rolled our new update for private education – “Educational Hub.” These resources help teachers and students to keep in touch and study remotely in connection with quarantine.

The resources include the following:

  • Anti-racism resources;
  • Self-care strategies and mental health resources (which are likely particularly important during social distancing during the pandemic);
  • “Get Digital,” a digital literacy program that includes lesson plans, online conversation starters, and online activities for students;
  • Group-focused options, including the opportunity to start or find a group of like-minded teachers, students, or parents.

Moreover, Facebook decided to go back to the original aim of the social network and launches Campus-platforms for students to chat with others, find out about upcoming events, and other online services.

Facebook DAUs were 1.93 billion on average for September 2021, an increase of 6% year-over-year.

Messenger App

Messenger is another favorite app created by Facebook. Today, this application goes hand in hand with the Facebook app itself for most smartphone users. But, actually, Messenger became available for iOS, Android, and Windows devices only in 2011. Before that, there was only the Facebook Chat that was released in 2008. But it was not a standalone application and offered a much worse user experience.

According to Statista, as of July 2021, Facebook Messenger was the second most popular messaging app in the world, has 1.3 billion monthly active users.

The most recent significant revamp of this application took place in October 2018. The updates were mainly focused on simplifying users’ life by decluttering the chat interface and reducing the number of tabs. Another change was related to personalization. Now, users can choose the display color in their conversation.

The dark mode, however, is something we expected to receive in 2019. On top of that, Facebook Messenger is going to become more ad-friendly. It’s likely that companies will receive the opportunity to create story ads if Facebook’s testing of this feature shows promising results.

The recent update #336.0 was on the 25th of October 2021. It gave the improvements and bug fixes for the latest version on Messenger.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is another messaging application Facebook owns. But unlike Messenger, WhatsApp was not made by the Facebook team — the company acquired it in 2014 for $19 billion. At that moment, the application was already quite ‘mature,’ having existed on the market for about five years.

And as we see, that was indeed a successful purchase as WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application worldwide nowadays. It has more than 2.0 billion monthly active users and ranked No.1 app by worldwide downloads.

What WhatsApp updates can we expect in 2021? Well, there is good news for companies and bad news for users. Facebook plans to put ads on WhatsApp, so you’ll see some commercial content in the application soon. According to the statistics, the number of active users will grow from 68.1 to 85.8 million.

A sad story related to these changes is that WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton left Facebook in September 2017. And rumor has it that the main reason for such a decision was their disagreement with the company’s intent to embed targeted ads in the application that was initially supposed to be advert-free. However, our team knows how to develop a WhatsApp clone app.

Instagram

Does Facebook own Instagram? Instagram is also one of the most popular applications held by Facebook. It was created in 2010, but its independent existence didn’t last for long. Facebook saw the potential in a newborn app and purchased it in April 2012 (the same month when the Android version of Instagram was released) for as little as $1 billion. Many believe that it’s the best deal in the history of Silicon Valley so far.

And it’s no wonder. As of October 2018, Instagram was one of the most used social networks globally. It has more than 1 billion monthly active users who share about 80 million photos and videos per day.

There is no official information on what new Instagram features we can expect in 2022. But some experts believe that there will be a greater focus on IGTV, which is a platform for sharing long-form vertical videos. On top of that, there are good chances that Instagram Stories will become more interactive as users will receive an opportunity to leave public comments and create multiple-choice questions.

On the 5th of August, Instagram launched a new feature – reels video. It is a 15-sec video where users can put music, text, and other effects. This feature is available only in 50 countries where music is allowed by law. Among them are the USA, Germany, France, Great Britain, and others. The creators of TikTok emphasize similarity to their social media and criticize this update of Instagram.

300 hundred million users use Facebook Stories daily compared to 500 million who use Instagram Stories every day.

Oculus VR

Oculus VR is one of the tech companies Facebook owns. It was founded in July 2012, and in March 2014, Facebook purchased it for $2.3 billion. As the name suggests, Oculus VR’s activity is mainly focused on the development of virtual reality software and hardware products.

As of today, the most famous of them is Oculus Rift — a VR headset released in March 2016. It gained popularity right after it appeared on the market. In 2017, for instance, the company sold nearly 700,000 items of this device.

Yet, there is also a dark side to the story. In 2014, ZeniMax, a well-known gaming company, filed a lawsuit against Facebook, claiming that Oculus Rift was built based on the stolen code and research. In December 2018, the court finally passed its verdict and awarded ZeniMax $250M in damages.

But it’s not a time to get upset for Facebook. A release of Oculus Quest, a revolutionary standalone VR headset, is planned for the spring of 2019. And it really has the potential to disrupt the tech world. This is because the announced price is more than affordable ($399), so many game players will probably want to have the device.

Masquerade (MSQRD)

This app is the least known among those mentioned in this list of apps and companies owned by Facebook. Yet, we want to say it as the application was initially built by some Belarusian guys no one knows about. This, basically, proves that even if you’re not a Silicon Valley habitat, you can create a great product Facebook will want to purchase.

What does the MSQRD app do? Well, in general, it allows its users to “play” with their selfies by placing different effects on videos in real-time. On top of that, designers can create their own filters to make videos even more fun. The price of the deal was not disclosed. But we believe there should be a lot of zeros in this number.

Whale

Memes have invaded the Internet, so it is quite understandable why this November, Facebook released a meme-making app called Whale. 

In Whale, you can select pictures from a camera or gallery on the device or even take a photo within the app to turn it into a fun meme. This app lets you add various emojis, texts, effects, and a couple of hype filters like laser eyes or vortex directly to your picture. It is even possible to make your stickers using cut & crop and drawing tools. After being completed, your funny creation can be shared with Instagram or Messenger. 

Did you know that Facebook, after the success of Clubhouse, began to actively develop a Clubhouse clone, audio with short-form Soundbites feature, and podcast support? Recently the company presented all these solutions and they are already available for some users. Read more in our article Facebook Announces New Audio Products.

GIPHY

Facebook amazed us all again in 2020 by purchasing Giphy (a huge GIF-making and sharing website) for $400 million and promising to integrate its enormous library with overly popular Instagram. Apart from Instagram, the service will be supported by Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Wow, isn’t it impressive that the users will have a set of tools for making their own GIFs and then sharing them with each other?

But will new Giphy ownership influence its regular users? Facebook says that it will absolutely not. Only the users of Instagram will enjoy the new way of sharing animated pictures and stickers. It is worth mentioning that many other giant websites like Twitter, Slack, Pinterest, and even Reddit are using GIFs created in Giphy and rely on its API. So let’s wait and see what Facebook developers have in mind and what new excellent option our favorite apps will get soon.

NPE Projects

AUX

This July, Facebook gathered NPE (New Product Experimentation) team and launched Aux – a beta version of a new music app for teens and schoolers. Aux is available for Canadian users and can be downloaded only on iOS devices. It ranked 38 among other music apps in the Canadian App Store, and this fall, the number of its downloads was only 500+. Many people have noticed that the AUX concept resembles Turntable.fm (a social media website for sharing music that was shut down in 2013). 

It is true that both solutions offer unique DJ’ing experiences; however, the core aim of Aux is a bit different. The app allows creating a so-called virtual party that all schoolers and teens can join at 9 P.M. They all can play their music and compete for “claps” to get up-voted. The musician who received more “claps” wins. We do not know what future awaits this app, but we think that it is excellent that the NPE squad creates solutions encouraging creative people to share their talents with each other. 

Bump by NPE

Facebook NPE team has recently released a freshly created app called Bump for both iOS and Android devices. This is basically an anonymous chatting app aimed to help people make friends.

 If you are wondering what makes it stand out from other alike messaging tools, the answer is – the opportunity to establish engaging communication without being distracted by pictures, videos, or links. Yes, Bump does not have any of those. You can only communicate with the help of text messages. The chatting in real-time, and answers should be sent within 30 seconds.

One more exciting feature of this app is that you can participate in one chat at a time. After the messaging is finished, two people can keep in touch further if they both agree. Kudos to NPE guys, for Bump, help people to value communication above appearance!

Tuned by NPE

Facebook launches a new messaging app called ‘Tuned,’ just for couples. A private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves. With Tuned, you can be as mushy, quirky, and silly as you are together in person, even when you’re apart. Creatively express your love, share your mood, exchange music, and build a digital scrapbook of your special moments.

Collab by NPE

Category: Music

Collab, Facebook’s experimental app for making collaborative music videos, is today launching out of private beta testing with a public release on the App Store. The app is one of now many projects from Facebook’s internal R&D group, NPE Team, which tests new ideas that could ultimately influence Facebook’s next steps in social media. In the app, a collab could consist of a guitarist, drummer, and a singer, each playing alongside the other in their respective videos.

FAQ

How many companies does Facebook own?

Facebook, Inc. is a social networking company that has acquired 82 other companies, including WhatsApp.

Why does the NPE team create new small apps?

The idea behind every new small app developed by NPE is to check users’ engagement and offer a new digital experience. They usually make apps available in a certain country and check the activity of the audience, especially the number of downloads and users’ engagement and reviews. This allows the developers to identify what apps and features are worth being improved further and transformed into holistic app.

Does Facebook have any competitors?

Although it seems like Facebook is one-of-a-kind, it has many competitors. They all can be divided into categories according to a certain activity. F.e. Facebook’s major competitors in advertising are Google and Amazon. When it comes to video sharing, YouTube is the best platform. Such services as Pinterest and LinkedIn have the biggest user base. Chinese social platform called WeChat exceeds Facebook drastically.

Final thoughts

Facebook owns the most popular and actively used companies for the last decades. There is a vast number of users that visit websites and applications every day. And the number is still increasing and widening its boundaries.

In this article, we mentioned only the most famous apps and companies Facebook owns. Of course, there are many more of them as the general list of Facebook’s products and acquisitions also contains multiple smaller purchases. And the Facebook empire keeps growing. So if you come up with some brilliant idea Facebook finds attractive, you may really make a fortune on it. In this regard, there are, basically, two options: you can either develop an entirely new product or think about additional features to enhance the existing app.

Already have an app idea even Zuckerberg would envy?

How VR Can Take Online Dating to the Next Level

Evolution is the capability to adapt to changes in our environment. In some cases, that means getting used to new situations that don’t go in our favor. But some aspects of our lives are becoming simpler and better with each day. Online dating is one of the areas moving in the right direction. New technologies are already helping singles enrich their love lives. Today we’ll focus on the usage of virtual reality on online dating sites. It will only get better in the future. But there are some potential risks we’ll mention the biggest to give you a heads up.

Niche Sites Are Introducing VR to Their Users

When online dating sites became popular, everybody was on the same couple of platforms. Niche sites haven’t even existed. Dealing with the general sites was too much for some people, so they never felt the power behind online dating. Then the next leap in the evolution of online dating happened. Niche sites started giving singles better experiences because everybody could focus on meeting specific people. Sites for adult dating, international sites, hookup sites, mature dating etc. Those are just some of the niches that didn’t exist in the past. Now, they’re shaping the lives of millions worldwide.

In fact, some niche sites were the first to give their members a VR experience. Cam sites have long been able to provide proactive stimulation between models in chat rooms and site users who can activate sensory equipment that might stoke part of the subject’s physique. The nature of these sites is that the more a customer wants to interact realistically, the more it is going to cost. It’s still not standard equipment, but soon, video chat will be old-school because online dates will take place in virtual reality. The reason for that is healthy competition between sites and inside every niche. Sites want to help all types of people. 

Platforms that focus on the adult dating experience of mature singles have to distinguish themselves from the other services in the niche. We’ll take casual mature dating as an example because that niche is growing like crazy. Mature hookup sites that exist today working hard to give their users the best possible experience. Gathering thousands of older women looking for sex on the same platform is not enough anymore, because singles don’t want to spend months texting with potential partners before a hookup. Video chat used to be the best shortcut to dates because it’s simpler to build trust when mature matches can see each other. 

But now, virtual reality is taking everything to the next step. It includes more senses into the experience, so singles can almost have actual dates before meeting in person. That’s helpful in areas where mature people are a minority and struggle to meet partners. VR makes it possible to meet single individuals and enjoy a considerable amount of pleasure without ever meeting in person. Of course, some equipment is needed for that.

VR Devices Are Real-Life Cheat Codes for Dating

Online dating features based on virtual reality would be pointless without VR equipment. If you’ve ever tried to watch a VR video without the headset, you know what we’re talking about. Without proper gadgets, VR causes more pain than it helps. Luckily, equipment isn’t as expensive as it used to be when that technology was brand new. We’ll look into popular gadgets that go great with meeting people online. Some don’t need black dating sites to work. As long as two people have the same equipment, they can hang out in virtual reality. That almost erases distance in relationships. Couples can stay in touch while they’re separated or meet new partners simpler than ever.

  • VR Glasses (Headsets)

VR headsets are mandatory equipment because everything goes through the brain. Headsets were first introduced in the adult movies industry and gained a lot of fans. Now, some dating sites, including mature dating and other niches, are finding ways to let their users chat using VR headsets.

  • VR Gloves for Full Experience

The main downside of chatting on mature hookup sites is the inability to touch the other person. VR gloves (meta’s haptic gloves) combined with VR headsets are working on erasing that. Soon, there will almost be no difference between dating someone online and in person. That will make millions of singles much happier.

Some Fundamental Requirements for Pleasant VR Experience

Virtual reality is great, but there are some requirements you have to meet if you want to enrich your dating life. First of all, you need to have a solid internet connection. If you live in a big house, think about using Wi-Fi range extenders. They provide stable internet in every corner of your home. You can move around without worrying that your virtual date will suddenly end.

We mentioned you need VR equipment too. Don’t settle for low-quality gadgets. Get decent stuff, so you’re sure it won’t let you down when you start having fun. The last requirement is finding a trustworthy platform to use VR. That’s crucial in online gaming and dating across all niches, not just mature hookups.

Will VR Ruin Dating as We Know It Today?

It’s impossible to say whether VR will ruin dating as we know it, but it will have an impact on it. We can already see numerous sites working on implementing every new VR feature. Sites for love seeking, hookup platforms, even apps for finding friends. Evolution is happening before our eyes. We can jump on the hype train or get crushed.

Conclusion: Should I Use a DeepNude App To Generate Fakes or Create My Own Fakes?

I am sure you are very excited about the next part of this article, where I am going to share my thoughts on two of the most popularly asked questions of all time. Should I use a deepnude app to generate fakes or create my own fake?

Before we get into these two questions, let’s talk about what is a deep nude. DeepNude is an application that uses facial recognition that allows you to take any picture on your phone and turn it into a nude photo. This can be done without your consent, which is why people are asking whether they should use it to generate fakes or create their own fake.

What is Cross-Platform Development?

Normally when you build a native app you have to build a separate one for Android and a separate one for iOS/Apple, each using that specific platform language. For example, to build for the following platforms you need to use the standard language they recognize:

  • Apple iOS: Program in Objective C or Swift
  • Android: Program in Java
  • Windows Phone: Program in C# and XAML

Unfortunately, the need for separate platform languages has the following disadvantages:

  1. Expense: Creating and maintaining an app for each operating system is much more expensive.
  2. Knowledge: Programming native mobile apps would require high levels of skill in 2-3 different languages.
  3. Uniformity: Because each platform has its own user interface, standardized widgets and features, apps will not be uniform from platform to platform and will create a different user experience depending on the device. Many people have more than one type of device so when they use your app on iOS and switch over to an Android device, their experience will be different.

Cross platform development provides the flexibility to build your app using a universal language like Javascript which can then be exported to various smartphone platforms. This allows one “app” to work across multiple habitats. This can be done in two ways:

  • Native App – Cross Platform Development – Using tools like React Native, Xamarin, or NativeScript, you end up with an app that still uses native APIs which allows for excellent performance across all platforms, without having to code each separately. This results in a very nice app that runs well and is a great compromise over the time and expense of building a native app.
  • Hybrid Apps – Cross Platform Development – Hybrid development is a tier lower than native cross-platform development. It relies on a built in web browser and HTML 5, CSS, and Javascript to render the app. The app is coded and then rendered on the smartphone inside an app container which is driven by an internal web browser. In hybrid apps, developers program using native web languages but wrap it in a native wrapper for each operating system, thus rendering it usable across multiple platforms. This can work OK for simple apps but in more complex apps, performance could be an issue.

Advantages of Cross Platform Development

There are 7 advantages to using cross-platform development:

  • Expenses are reduced as the need to code in two or three separate languages disappears. In addition bugs that are present in the common code base need only be fixed once (for the most part).
  • Time to market is reduced since developing one program takes a lot less time than building two or three apps for each device platform.
  • Uniformity increases between different operating systems creating a more seamless user experience.
  • Companies are able to reach many more customers right from the get-go which increases exposure and future ROI.
  • The development tools are familiar as they employ common programming languages.
  • It is ideal for prototyping because it allows a faster time to market on more than one platform and allows the owner to collect user feedback, establish a position in the market and secure any patents if necessary, before another company can do the same.
  • In the case of apps used by employees, cross platform apps can help you achieve quicker deployment and adoption at a lower cost, since bring your own device (BYOD) policies are becoming more and more common in the workplace.

Disadvantages of Cross Platform Development

There are some disadvantages to using cross-platform development:

  • Programs can be less efficient. This occurs due to lack of hardware power to perform smooth HTML5 animations on low or mid range devices, redundant processes for the different platforms, or running on operating systems that are more than 3 years old.
  • The program itself may need to be more generalized and in the process become less sophisticated than it would if it were built for one specific program.
  • Using advanced features with cross platform development may take more battery power and a lot more resources than with a native application.

SaaS vs On-Premise: A Guide to the Top Enterprise Software Solutions

Businesses of all sizes and industries are looking for ways to improve their operations and realize new levels of success. One way to accomplish this is through enterprise software solutions that help businesses automate and streamline processes, while also improving customer satisfaction and retention rates.

There are many different types of enterprise software solutions, but two main categories include on-premise software and SaaS (Software as a Service). Today we’re going to take a look at the top enterprise software solutions in each category, so you can choose what’s best for your business.

The 7 Most Important Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Switching to SaaS for Enterprise Solutions

1) What type of data do you currently store?

Software as a service: Software as a service (SaaS) is a software model that delivers application and data to users through the internet or other computer networks.

Cloud hosting: Cloud hosting is the process of storing and delivering computing services over the Internet. It is one of many cloud computing services, which can be classified as either Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Software as a Service (SaaS).

On-premise vs saas: On-premise solutions are installed on your company’s local computers and servers, while SaaS solutions are hosted by third parties in their own data centers.

2) Do you want access to new features and updates instantly?

Companies who want to use software as a service have the option of using it on-premise. However, there are some drawbacks that come with this. In this case, you need to set up a server and hire an IT staff for maintenance and updates.

On the other hand, enterprise solutions are usually installed on their own servers which are managed by the company. This may be time consuming but they offer increased security and increased flexibility.

Both of them have their upsides and downsides but when it comes to cost, enterprises may be cheaper in the long run because they don’t need to pay for an external service provider.

3) How many employees will need access to the new system?

An on-premise installation of enterprise software will require more people to get access to the system for managing it. This includes the IT team, the HR team, and all employees. The key thing here is that more people will need access to this system. On the other hand, with an enterprise software solution that is cloud-hosted or on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model where you have access over the Internet, there is no need for anyone else apart from the business owner or head of department to have access.

This means that fewer employees would be required to support an SaaS model than an on-premise installation when it comes to enterprise software solutions.

4) If your company already has a legacy system in place will it be compatible with the new solution?

If your company already has a legacy system in place and you’re considering a new solution like Saas, then the integration may pose some problems for you. You will need to figure out if the system that you’re using is compatible with the Saas provider’s offerings.

Saas providers of course offer many benefits such as scalability, ease of use and sustainability. But these benefits can only be realized if your company is able to make the transition from your legacy system to this newer type of more streamlined system without any compatibility issues or glitches.

Yes and no. It really depends on the system that is currently in place and the needs of the business. As for an example, if a company has a legacy system that relies on SQL, then they will need to find a system that supports SQL as well. For example, some companies who use Salesforce as their SaaS provider will need to find a solution that is compatible with Salesforce.

We then know that AI is not a single “thing” but a set of technologies and techniques that can be used to solve problems. AI provides the computational power for intelligent behavior and the ability to learn from experience and execute tasks with precision.

With this in mind, we start our research on which type of AI would be most appropriate for our app idea. For example, if we want to make an app like ShortlyAI (in which you write your message and it generates a personalized GIF), we would need an “AI Writer.”

We then need to figure out how long it will take us to build this application. If we want to develop it by ourselves, we will have to

How to find good AI web developers?

Finding a talented and good AI web developer is one of the most difficult tasks in the modern internet era. It’s not just about finding someone who can code, but also about finding someone who understands the importance of AI for the future of our industries.

However, some things you can do to find a skilled AI web developer are: visiting online forums where developers are discussing technology, searching for an AI web developer on LinkedIn, or looking for an AI web developer on Google.

Replacement for MacDraw: All Solutions

About MacDraw:

MacDraw was a vector graphic drawing application released along with the first Apple Macintosh systems in 1984. MacDraw was one of the first WYSIWYG drawing programs that could be used in collaboration with MacWrite. MacDraw was useful for drawing technical diagrams and floorplans. @Wikipedia

The Problem:

I have recently changed from an old 68k Mac to a G4. I have a lot of drawings (mainly building floor plans) that I did using MacDraw Pro that I want to display on my G4. I’ve copied the application across and it runs OK in Classic mode. However I’d prefer to use an OSX native version if possible. As MacDraw is no longer available, can anyone suggest a suitable alternative?

I know there are plenty of high-end drawing (and even CAD) programs out there, but what I’m after is something quite basic that I can use for drawing room layouts, floor plans, etc. (i.e. mostly circles, rectangles and lines). One of the features I like about Mac Draw is being able to set up the scaling on drawings e.g 5mm = 1m, and then use autosize lines to show the room dimensions on a drawing.
Does anyone know of a simple program that has these features? I’ve tried CAD programs like PowerDraw, but I prefer the simplicity of a drawing program.

Mac Draw and ClarisDraw Import

Apple Works:

Apple has dropped support for AppleWorks, a great classic application whose time has passed. Apple’s new proprietary workflow offering is the iWork suite. These Apps do not provide a drawing application. Many users migrating to iWork have found EazyDraw to be the perfect solution for their drawing needs. In response to this trend, EazyDraw now offers a full import of AppleWorks 6 drawings. Since the iWork applications and EazyDraw are founded on the Cocoa technology, EazyDraw works as a full fledged team player, finishing out the Dream Workflow of the future. More Info: AppleWorks Import .

Import the Classic Mac Drawing Files:

EazyDraw now supports full import of AppleWorks 6, Claris Draw, MacDrawII, MacDrawPro and PICT files. All vector information, patterns, colors, gradients, groups, layers and rotated object, are supported by the import.

Full support is provided for import and editing of PICT images and files. PICT content may be converted to EazyDraw vector graphics. The conversion conserves vector information, fully attributed text, as well as embedded bitmap images.

ClarisDraw Libraries:

ClarisDraw libraries are fully supported by EazyDraw. A ClarisDraw library is opened directly into EazyDraw. The Claris Library becomes an EazyDraw library with support for all the EazyDraw library modes: Name, Button, Element, with main menu access.

Top Launchers for your Android TV Box in 2021-2022

The launchers that come by default in most Smart TV Boxes are pretty boring. Really! Ugly icons and pastel backgrounds that say nothing and give a very unattractive touch. Do you want to customize the interface of your Android TV to show the apps in a more elegant and colorful?

In this post, we take a look at the best launchers for your Android TV Box. Attentive, because it has no waste!

The 10 best launchers for your Android TV Box

I’ve been using TV boxes for about 5 years at home and office, and I’ve always had to change the launcher that came pre-installed on the device. And it is not an easy task, since there are not too many specific launchers for Android TV OS that are worthwhile.

However, there are still a few launchers in the Google Play Store that are really good and serve to significantly improve the user experience.

Square Home 3 by ChYK

My favorite launcher for Android TV. Whenever I change the TV box I install this launcher, since it is light years away from what most manufacturers offer us (especially if we have a cheap box).

It offers a fully customizable desk, with different sizes for icons, colors, shades, widgets, customizable wallpapers and more. The interface is Metro UI type, which is known to appear in the latest versions of Windows. Do not lose sight of it.

Load here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ss.squarehome2&hl=en&gl=US

ATV Launcher

Some TV Boxes do not allow changing the wallpaper. It is an important fact because if we install a traditional launcher designed for mobile phones on a TV Box with this type of blockade, it is quite a nuisance. We could not change the wallpaper and instead, we would have a black wallpaper. Luckily with ATV Launcher we can skip that restriction and put the wallpaper that we want.

In general, an excellent launcher for Android TV. It has a very intuitive interface and is a step ahead of the horrible launchers that come from the factory.

Simple TV Launcher

The right launcher for those who use 4 things and already. The desktop is capable of hosting a panel with 6 large buttons where we can assign the apps that we use the most. It is a fairly stable launcher and usually does not give many problems. It allows the use of animated wallpapers (as long as our TV box supports them and we have some stored in the internal memory).

It’s totally free, and like the previous 2 launchers that we just mentioned it does not contain any kind of ads.

Ugoos TV Launcher

A different launcher and with a really careful interface. It has some customization options, although some could be included for the user’s pleasure. One of its peculiarities is that it offers advanced support for air mouse and adaptive remote controllers.

An app that we should not lose sight of. Notice for boaters: attentive because it is not compatible with some models of Android TV box.

TvHome App

TvHome is a minimalistic launcher for Android TV that’s designed to provide you with the best TV experience. It replaces the stock launcher that ships with Android TVs. TvHome is all about your TV, put your apps and games on one page, and enjoy the customization options to show everything just the way you want it.

If you have a smart TV from Samsung or LG that runs either TizenOS or webOS, the layout of TvHome Launcher will be instantly familiar. Indeed, if you want to recreate the smart TV experience, TvHome is one of the best Android TV launchers you’ll find.

Download: TvHome Launcher (For Free)

HALauncher

This is a launcher designed to show and open apps that have not been specifically designed for Android TV. Normally in TV boxes and portable consoles with Android do not show the apps that otherwise could work if we load them in the background ( sideload ), something that we can solve with this launcher. It is one of the best launchers for your Android TV Box.

As for design, it is not my favorites, but it has many customization options for sizes, fonts, and colors. Oh! And it allows changing the wallpaper. Of course, it still has some edges to polish.

TV Launcher

Generic name launcher developed specifically for Android TV. The design is somewhat more static than Square Home and with fewer customization options, but it is presented as a clean and elegant desk. Although developed by an amateur developer offers some interesting results. If you are looking to renew the look of your TV Box it is well worth taking a look.

The only downside is that it has integrated ads that jump from time to time (something we can solve if we go to the premium version).

Sideload Launcher

Like HALauncher, this is a launcher to load all those apps that do not appear in the Home of our Android TV because they are not completely compatible. Mind you, that does not mean that they will work, but at least it allows us to test them and use them if they are operational. A very practical launcher if we have compatibility problems with any application. It is more stable than HALauncher – something to be expected considering that we are talking about an app developed by Chainfire.

Noblex Launcher

Application designed for TV Boxes of the Noblex brand. Even if we do not have an Android TV from this manufacturer, we can install it anyway. It is a launcher with a more than appropriate design, very similar to Square Home 3, but with fewer configuration options.

Perfect if all we want is a pretty launcher instantly, without having to worry about personalization.

Smart Launcher 5

It is a launcher that is designed for mobile but adapts quite well to the widescreen format of a TV. Presents 2 customizable desktops: one with the app drawer in a circular and another more traditional.

It has a really basic design that can come to our hair if we are looking for a minimalist environment without distractions.

Mega TV Launcher

A launcher whose particularity is a central window from which we can search on YouTube. The presentation is not bad, but the wallpaper is not customizable, and sadly it is quite shabby. Ouch.

On the other hand, the launcher has no configuration options, which makes it a rather rigid tool. However, it has a stable interface and we will hardly see crashes.

Find the Best Android TV box Launcher for Your Needs

In our opinion, there is not a single Android TV launcher app that stands out from the crowd. They are all targeted at different subsets of users. Consider questions like “how many apps do you use frequently” and “which features are most important” before you make your final decision.

Is it legal to use DeepNude app?

The question of the legality of using the application is on several levels at the same time. Some software is completely illegal, some can be tested, but it is forbidden to benefit.

Deepnude is an app that has been born of machine learning technology. But it won’t make the world a better place, it plays on our animal instincts.

The app has been downloaded more than 500,000 times. This is because it’s easy to use. It takes less than four minutes for the app to process the video. And there are no limitations on what videos you can upload.

There are some concerns about the implications of using this app though. For example, revenge porn is a serious issue in society today. And people worry that this app will be used to distribute revenge porn, which takes advantage of victims that have already been exploited one time.

Are Deepfakes Illegal?

Is it legal to use the DeepNude app? Many people wonder that. Some deep nude apps claim to be “art”, while others may be dangerous or a scam. Some websites may even be completely fake, and they charge visitors to download. While there is no evidence of such, it’s still a good idea to avoid pirated websites. If you’re unsure of what to look for, check the privacy and safety policies of the website you plan to use.

Deepfakes have the potential of being a national security risk.

If you’re wondering if DeepNude is legal, read on. Although it may not be a good idea to post pictures of yourself in public, DeepNude has gained a lot of attention from the public. It’s no secret that women are very uncomfortable with the idea of exposing their bodies, but a deepfake app can help them get their man back. Just be sure to be careful.

The developer has pulled DeepNude from the web. In fact, the DeepNude site has been taken down by the company. The creators claim it’s not illegal to use the DeepNude app, but the app is subject to smuggling laws. As such, it’s important to know what the laws are in your jurisdiction before using the app. It’s also important to keep in mind that many countries have a strict ban on non-consensual pornography, which means that the use of this app may be considered a crime.

What is RCP component and Why Is it on my Android Phone?

What Is RCP Components App on Android?

RCP components are an Eclipse-based system App that helps developers build and launch applications on a variety of devices. They help developers integrate independent software modules into their application without the user’s knowledge. The application can be launched on a variety of devices without a need for manual intervention. They are also designed to be portable to different operating systems. These components can be installed and removed without causing any harm to the device. The RCP component app is available in the play store and is completely safe to download and install. However, it can interfere with other apps on the phone and may cause damage.

Developers can easily remove RCP components from their applications by deleting the apps. This will not harm other applications that require these components, but it can also damage other applications. If you do not need any particular application, you can delete all the RCP components from it. These applications are portable and can launch on different devices. By deleting these applications, you’ll have more space on your device. If you’re worried about breaking other applications on your device, it’s easy to use the RCP components app to create a new application.

Android’s RCP components

Android’s RCP components are built into the operating system and enable developers to build applications. Because of their inherent power, they are crucial to the smooth functioning of the device. You can disable RCP components from your smartphone without worrying about security issues. If you’re unsure about which apps are using this technology, check out the developer’s website. The instructions for removing these components will help you remove them easily. If you’re unsure about whether these components are harmful, you should disable them instead.

RCP components make building applications much easier than developing them from scratch. You don’t need any tools to develop an application using them. They’re also portable to different operating systems, so you’ll be able to launch it on a variety of devices with a minimum of hassle. This means that your app will work on a variety of gadgets without the need for additional development. This makes rcp applications highly useful.

While RCP apps can be safely removed from the Google Play store, they’re not safe for the Android device. They can damage the device, so it’s best to keep them on the phone and uninstall them from time to time. They’re also not easy to remove from the Android Market. If you want to delete them completely, you may risk damaging the device. The RCP apps you need to remove are the ones that aren’t available on the Google Play store.

The RCP components app is an essential tool to have on your Android phone. It allows developers to easily integrate independent software components into their applications. The RCP component can be found in the application manager on Android devices. It’s a great tool for Android developers, and it’s a system app for developers. In fact, RCP components are a huge part of your development and are a vital part of a mobile app’s UI.

What is Bubble Website & App Builder and Why It Can Substitute Custom Website?

Bubble is another website builder or web development constructor that makes possible “programming without coding”. Since the success of WordPress and its many counterparts like Joomla, Wix and Magento, website builders became a niche of software products that offer a certain kind of standardized CMS system to present content on the web and many templates to make it look different (for which you pay additionally). That’s too good to be true and it’s not by chance that most business owners and startups prefer custom software development to the deployment of any website constructor or software builder.

Proceed with further reading to know more about the obvious downsides of Bubble software and the many benefits of custom web software that can serve your needs much more efficiently.

Bubble software allows making apps as well because the digital world has shifted towards smartphones and tablets and it no longer gravitates around the desktop. However, builders like Bubble deprive your product of the only thing that can make it successful – originality. Your possible variety of design choices and features is very limited and whatever little you save doesn’t pay off because you lose your brand authenticity in the process.

And for every possible product out there you can be sure to find dozens of competitors. Who becomes successful? Those that clients notice among a myriad of other businesses. 

Custom is Always Better

Using a blueprint to build anything automatically means that the final design won’t be original and authentic. To stick out in the era of sophisticated marketing and frivolous consumerism it is absolutely necessary to be unique. If you start a project with “do it simple” and “do it cheap” objectives in mind, it will be detected by Google algorithms and your possible clients that always feel in their gut, whether you deserve their attention (and money) or not.

A custom solution gives more space for creative input and interesting choices simply because it is implied that the final project itself is the sum of such inputs and choices. This is work that is going to be respected for the sake of it. Putting in real work means showing effort and without effort there’s no respect from the users/clients to wait for. That is why a website or an app made with Bubble or any other constructor is destined to fail in a highly competitive environment. 

How Can Bubble Software Be Useful?

As one developer has put it, paradoxically, Bubble software can be effective in saving a lot of time and effort for developers but it is not marketed to them. Instead, it is promoted to be used by business owners and digital startups that seek a profound online presence. And it is useless for them. So the ones who really need Bubble (to cut down the astounding 25% of routine programming) to simplify coding are not considered a target audience while those that won’t really benefit from it are bought with the premise of “getting software without code”. 

Like Framer or WordPress that can substitute certain blocs of your website or help with design and content management, Bubble software can be effective in reducing time it takes coding the front-end but what it absolutely cannot do is to substitute the development entirely. And with a bright idea in mind some features offered by Bubble can, on the contrary, limit your possibilities. 

Bubble Features

  • DEVELOP – Build any web app with no code.
  • DESIGN – Harness total design freedom.
  • HOST – Scale with robust, hosted infrastructure.
  • GROW – Expand, engage, measure.
  • COLLABORATE – Share the workload.

Disadvantages of Bubble.io

Websites and apps built with Bubble software or other constructors are generally slower (because every feature is a plugin or an extension).

When you write custom code for a feature, everything works faster because the underlying engineering underneath your core processes is developed to behave optimally fast and as efficiently as possible. Every software engineer designs a specific approach and makes a unique process that are exclusively suitable for a certain task at hand. Due to that you can save milliseconds on features and summed up they’re gonna result in a significant rise in speed. 

Speed matters and there’s nothing that causes more outrage than slow connection. That’s why people buy newer phones with more RAM, build 5G networks and optimize every little thing in their lives to always move faster. This is the philosophy of progress and innovation. If you want to succeed, be faster. The faster, the better. Keep in mind that every millisecond here or millisecond there matters on the internet.

Wrapping Up

So, do you really want your business to depend on some third-party software provider? This is too big a risk to allow, since even a slightest discrepancy in your web platform or a mobile app can ruin the journey for your customers.

Even Google and Facebook frequently face downtime, so anything can happen to Bubble, putting to risk everybody, whose business depends on this software provider. When you have your own custom-developed software, you control the situation and have a much bigger number of opportunities to improve, update and upgrade your platform.

Bubble software is no match to it. And the choice is up to you.

Bubble October 2021 UX Update:

Honestly, it was intuitively hard to put together anything sane in Bubble before, and now this. The interaction of containers and content in it is complete crap. Attempts to redesign even the simplest screen cause despair attacks from the fact that the elements generally fly as and where they want, and your past suffering is devalued. It’s a shame to go through all that chaos for the sake of a template or MVP. I don’t plan to use Bubble at all, ever. It’s easier to hire someone to do the MVP for you, or have the code do everything humanly.

Best 360 Camera Apps for iPhone and Android: Secrets of Development

Nowadays we are surrounded by content. We scroll newsfeed, we browse websites, we see ads on the streets, we listen to the radio and watch TV. Our brain gets used to processing the enormous amount of information and it “smoothes” the majority of things we see otherwise our heads would become overloaded.

It’s hard to capture someone’s attention in this madness. But quick-witted marketers don’t give up and invent new types of content each day.

So, the new engaging technology of 360 videos and photo is finally here! Of course, special tools are required to create such content, so we can see the splash of new apps and cameras for panoramic images.

Top 3 best 360 panorama apps for iOS and Android

We don’t need to buy an expensive camera and learn how to use special software to make 360 photos anymore. Now we can create all-round panoramic pictures using our smartphone just in a few taps! 3D photos can be used in marketing, tourism, education, medicine and many other industries. Or, you can make one just for fun and post it on Facebook!

So, we made a shortlist of the best photosphere apps. Choose the one and start creating!

Panorama 360 Camera (HD+) + VR video by TeliportMe

Let’s start with the Panorama 360 Camera app available on both Android and iOS. We put it first thanks to intuitive design, and the possibility to capture 360 panoramas and videos. There are 3 models: normal, manual and real-time. How it works: hold your smartphone in a vertical position, tap the shooting button and start moving the phone around you to capture an image. When you stop shooting the app will build panorama automatically.

Panorama 360 Camera app uses 2 monetization models at the same time: ads and in-app purchases. You can buy such premium features as:

  • Stitch later – you can delay the panorama building to save time for more images.
  • Facebook sharing
  • Dropbox sync
  • HD capture
  • Remove watermarks for Instagram share
  • Remove Ads
  • Unlimited video download in .mp4 format

Alongside with the cool functionality, an app has a huge community to share your masterpieces with.

Fyuse – 3D Photos

An unusual app that is also available on Google Play and App Store. It allows creating “fyuses” or spatial images. How it works: point your smartphone to an object you are going to film, tap the capture button and walk around this object so the Fyuse can be recorded. As a result, an app captures the interactive 3D image of an object, so you can move and oversee it from different angles.

The ready-made 3D images can be shared via social media or you can be added to the feed of an app. And know what? This app is absolutely free and doesn’t have any in-app purchases.

FOV – 360 photo app

This app is designed in Paris and encourages everyone to change the Field Of View. Sound romantic, right?
FOV is a free app, available for iPhones only. It allows shooting amazing pictures up to 360 degrees with ease. How it works: when you start shooting, the small dots and a target appear on the screen. You have to move your phone in such a way that dots get into the target, so the panoramic photo can be made. Then push the “done” button to finish shooting. The results can be saved to your iPhone or sent via social media.

With the Samsung Gear 360 (New) app, you can create, view, and share 360 content on your smartphone, and enjoy various features by connecting Gear 360.

How to develop 360-degree photo app for iPhone and Android

As you can see, each company has its own technical approach to creating panoramic photos. They also differ in monetization methods, and some of them are even completely free. Nevertheless, there is always room for improvement, so it’s never late to start your own business in the industry.

But how to develop the best 360 panorama app for iOS and Android and conquer the market?

Fortunately, such giants as Facebook and Google have already opened the development tools for capturing 360 media.

360 Capture SDK by Facebook

Previously, the 360 photos could be made by capturing the pieces and stitching them together into one image. Developers had to use game engines to produce high-quality content.

But later Facebook announced the 360 Capture SDK allowing to capture three-dimension images and upload them directly to the news feed or view with the VR headset.

Facebook managed to create the totally new experience by changing the approach to making 360 photos. The basic technology used in 360 Capture SDK is cube mapping rather than traditional stitching.

Now user can create stunning 3D images using their smartphones rather than powerful computers or cameras. That means the technology became more affordable for users. On the other hand, SDK is compatible with such game engines like Unity or Unreal.

Moreover, cube mapping allows delivering VR-quality 360 video at 30 fps in a single second. Images are posted in 1080p to the news feed and uploaded in 4K for VR.

360° Media tools by Google

Google has also launched Google VR SDK compatible with both Android and iOS devices. This tool allows mobile app developers to enhance their products with the new 360-degree content. The 360-degree media captured with apps build on Google VR SDK can be viewed from any kind of devices starting with Google Cardboard and ending up with desktop browsers and mobile apps.

Users can capture both 360-degree images and videos in various dimensions. Afterward, they can be stored whenever you like, for example, videos can be hosted on YouTube. And it’s no wonder since Google bought YouTube.

360° Cameras Solution

Meeting Owl Pro is a 360° smart video conferencing camera designed to be set up on the go to make any space a video conferencing room.

Conclusion

360-degree media is still trendy and desirable. This digital technology can be used not only for entertainment but also for business growth and marketing. Tech giants like Facebook and Google have even launched their SDK to help developers create apps for panoramic photos or VR videos. All you need is a fresh idea and an app development company that will bring it to life. For example, GBKSOFT.

How to Develop an App for Sports Team Fans?

Apps for sports team fans can be packed with awesome features for users to enjoy and for the team to get new monetization methods.

Sports applications and apps for sports fans, though popular still cause a number of difficulties for developers. Is it worthwhile to start developing a product that will be popular in a narrow circle of fans of a certain sport or even a specific team? What functionality must the application have, so that it can interest users? Perhaps, the most important question is how to earn money with the application for sports fans?

Choosing ways for the monetization of any application is a separate serious problem, but without profits, it makes no sense even to begin the development process. However, let us review everything in order.

The purpose of this article is to discuss how to make an app for sports fans and specifics of such software.

What Can Help Attract the Attention of Fans?

To make a mobile app for sports team fans successful, first, you need to focus on the interests and needs of potential users. Of course, in order to interest the buyer maximally, one must seriously study the sport or even the specific team, its features, history and even slang. While preparing to develop an app for football club fans or app for soccer team fans, it is important to know the sports terminology and to use in the text content slang words related to a particular team and the sport as a whole. This approach will surely help to attract the target audience.

However, it is not enough just to show that you are in accord with customers. The main things in the application are its functions and capabilities.

Fan Communication by App

The first need of fans of any sport or team is communication. Even before the advent of the internet, information technology and mobile applications for iOS and Android, fans joined clubs by interests to communicate on common topics, discuss matches, players and teams. The implementation of the fans’ need for communication is perhaps the mandatory function in the application, no matter which of the features of the application will be the main ones. However, do not bet on the chat application for the fans of the team: in the modern world of social media, these people have long ago found each other and united in groups on the network.

Easy Helpful Information Access

Of course, sports fans can fully realize their need to get info about their favorite team on the Internet. The question arises: why make an app for sports club fans that does everything they can do without it? The answer is simple: unlike information resources, communities and interest groups in social networks, your application can give the opportunity to get “Everything at once and in one place”:

  • Information about players and the team, including biographies and history;
  • Match statistics;
  • League rankings;
  • Booking forecasts;
  • Links to all the team news published at various resources, events, and campaigns.

Entertainment in real-time

Sports fans are very gambling people. Applications dedicated to a favorite sports team that employ gaming mechanics can be very attractive and popular. This can be match replays, where the user can experience the flow of the game from the player’s point of view, or educational games, thanks to which beginners can better understand the rules of the game.

The possibility of a multiplayer game be it step-by-step or real-time is another good idea to attract users to your product. Games can also be a good foundation for monetizing your application.

What Else can be Useful for the Fans?

Symbolism and color scheme of the team is an excellent tool in the hands of the developer. Various unique emoji and colorful stickers, especially when they can be transferred to other platforms (for example, social networks, chat, WhatsApp, etc.) – is an opportunity to attract new fans to your product. Regular add-ons, updates and additional emoji packages with custom design can also increase the audience of your users. In addition, paid VIP packages and functions are a good way to receive revenue from the application.

What are the Benefits for Developers?

For any application owner, the most important issue is naturally the return they will get from the product. Developing an application for fans is a very complex process, requiring the careful study of additional information: from the features and rules of the sport to the biographies of all the team members. This requires resources and, first of all, time, which is expensive by itself. Can the application for the sports fans recoup the costs of the development through the monetization of the finished product?

The answer is yes. You can monetize any high-quality product, and applications for sports fans provide additional income opportunities.

Best Monetization Methods

The first and one of the most profitable methods of application monetization besides selling the application itself in stores is advertising. In the presence of a large audience both the placement of advertising and paid premium accounts, for which ads are disabled are a great way to earn money.

For informational applications, it will be appropriate to have paid subscriptions with additional functionality and capabilities.

Monetization of gaming applications (especially with the possibility of joint participation of many players or the opportunity to share results and achievements) is a real gold mine. To receive profits, you can use as additional game content (new levels, matches, advanced “equipment”, etc.), and additional opportunities in the game for VIP accounts.

Implementation of sports betting in your product is another possibility to profit.

An audience consisting of fans of one team is also a way to profit by selling various team-themed merchandise such as clothes with prints of team symbols and popular players. Remember: the more unique is the merchandise, the more value it will bear for buyers. Include in the list of app features the ability to search for products dedicated to the team at the e-commerce sites and purchase them directly and your product will certainly pay off and bring profit.

How to Make an App for Sports Fans: is it Worth Taking on the Development?

The question is very complicated and it is very difficult to give an unambiguous answer to it. Certainly, sports fans can become a strong, large and loyal audience for an application dedicated to their favorite team. It is no secret that such an audience is very likely to bring greater profit to the creators of the application when monetizing it. The only question is if you would be able to come up with and develop a product that will attract the users you need?

Besides the point that the applications for the fans must be of high quality and maximally trouble-free, it must be efficient, useful and interesting. To create such a product, you must very careful approach to the study of the needs and interests of potential users. What do the fans want? How to pique their interest? What are their objectives? What features of the application will intrigue them? To answer these questions, it’s best to be a fan of the team, at fans of which a product is directed, or to conduct a serious study of the market and potential consumers.

On the other hand, knowing and understanding your audience gives a definite plus to developers. With a responsible approach to the idea and product development, establishing feedback from users, you can create an application “developed by fans for fans”, and this is almost a 100% guarantee of popularity.

“developed by fans for fans”

Be creative, understand the needs and interests of your users and your product is doomed to success, and you – to high profits.

How to Build a Successful App like Poshmark?

If you ever thought about building a shopping mobile app? Then you should definitely consider a Poshmark marketplace as a role model for your future app. Why?

Across the internet, the resale market is blowing up. Platforms like The RealReal and StockX are making it easier than ever to buy and sell luxury goods, while ThredUP has become the world’s largest online thrift store.

In the middle of the market, there’s Poshmark. Today, the nine-year-old company announces it has paid out $2 billion to its community of seven million sellers. And what’s even more surprising is that a year ago, the company hit its $1 billion milestones, meaning it has doubled revenues generated for sellers in a single year. It’s just another sign that the resale market is gaining speed.

Poshmark is pricing its IPO at $42 per share, raising $277M, up from its $35-$39 price initially noted in an earlier filing — Online marketplace is raising $277 million in share sale — Poshmark IPO follows trading debut by consumer lender Affirm

bloomberg

Poshmark is one of the largest social commerce marketplaces for buying and selling used clothes and it had a community of 60 million users at the end of 2019. It stands out clearly against the competitors thanks to its “social selling” model. The platform seems like a social media site, where users create profiles and chat about products before purchasing. As a result, the average Poshmark user spends between 23 and 27 minutes a day on the platform, sharing 30 million listings daily.

Social shopping and resale have fueled the closet phenomenon. Shopping and selling have become more fluid, accelerating the opportunity of a circular economy — and everyone’s getting on board. Shoppers are turning to platforms like Poshmark to extend the life cycle of clothing, creating a more prosperous future.

What is Poshmark?

We already mentioned that Poshmark is a social marketplace where everyone in the United States and Canada has the opportunity to buy and sell clothing. The customers of the platform can browse the marketplace and search according to specific criteria. Users can find everything from common items to exclusive luxury things.

Furthermore, users can sell their unwanted or unworn clothing and accessories at this platform. Purchases can be paid through PayPal, credit cards, and Apple Pay. Inspired by the success of Poshmark? Then let’s discuss how to create a website like Poshmark. It’s better to start from a minimum viable product (MVP). This approach enables you to confirm your idea at an early stage so you can get feedback from real users and improve your product as soon as possible.

What main features should have an app like Poshmark?

Poshmark stands out from its competitors by providing 100 % assurance to the buyers about the quality and hygiene of the goods. There are particular selling options by Poshmark which no other marketplace doesn’t provide.

Reservation purchases

Is there was a situation when you wanted to buy a product and while you filled in a form someone took the product first? But in Poshmark, the ‘reserve’ feature helps the buyer to flag the item for 10 minutes so that they can enter their details and even though they suffer from a slow network issue, there still be a chance to get the product.

In case, if the buyer abandons the cart, still the product stays as flagged for 10 minutes and then is open for other buyers.

58% are comfortable purchasing items through a social media platform instead of directly from a company’s website. Poshmark is among the most popular platforms to purchase from, alongside Instagram and Facebook Marketplace.

POSHMARK REPORT

Bundle Buy

When the user wants to purchase several items from one particular seller, the normal procedure that they go through is by going on adding to cart one by one item which makes no difference even if the items were by different sellers.

But by using the bundling feature, the buyers can ask the sellers to create a bundle out of the products and the entire package can be sent to the buyers together. This provides the users with the ease to shop for their closet along with all the accessories.

Inspired with Poshmark success? Want to develop such an incredible app?

A TikTok-like Stories Feature

Poshmark is about to look a lot more like TikTok. The new feature will appear at the top of users’ feed, showing closets they follow in a vertical slideshow, which disappears after 48 hours. By clicking on a tagged item, you’re directly taken to that seller’s closet to purchase or make them an offer. Stories are intended to improve organic engagement among users.

We should forget standard features that have to be on a website similar to Poshmark:

Authorization

Start using the platform shoppers and buyers should provide their names and email addresses. It is required by marketplace like Poshmark because users usually don’t like to fill registration forms and this has become a regular practice to use their existing social login credentials from Google or Facebook to sign up for the platform.

Seller profile

This page contains information about sellers (recent comments received and given, brands they follow, average shipping time, activities, registration date on the marketplace) based on this information buyers can decide whether to trust or not.

Listings of seller’s goods

It would be great if buyers will be able to see all products from a particular seller but also to sort them using filters like size, color, and price.

Item search

This function must be mandatory for shoppers to pick up items with convenient search functionality, intuitive product filtering, and simple product cards.

Product page

This page gives buyers a detailed description and several images to allow them to see the product from different angles with all details.

Payment

All transactions between buyers and sellers go through a payment gateway. This option allows buyers to pay using credit/debit cards or PayPal and enables sellers to get their money easily.

Apps like Poshmark use escrow payments, which means a third party regulates the payments between the two parties involved in the transaction. The escrow payments secure transactions since the escrow provider keeps the payment until all conditions are met. In terms of Poshmark similar marketplaces, until the buyers acknowledge receipt the payment will be withheld.

Trends: Poshmark vs Mercari vs Depop vs ThredUP

How do websites like Poshmark make money?

As we mentioned earlier Poshmark is a peer-to-peer marketplace where people sell new or used products to interested buyers.

If an item passes the threshold of 500$ (and thus classifies as a luxury good), Poshmark handles the authentication process. Other duties include the conducting of the payment and logistics.

Poshmark made many ways to monetize its user base.

Adding items

To list products on a marketplace, sellers have to pay fees. For example, Etsy charges sellers $0.20 to list one product on the website for four months.

Peer-To-Peer Sales

Poshmark does have any inventory but acts as a facilitator of the transaction. To provide this service, it takes a percentage from each transaction. Therefore, the Poshmark business model is called commission-based.

The platform focuses on making the process transparent as possible for its sellers, unlike its competitors. For every sale below $15, the company charges a flat fee of $2.95. Any sale above the $15 mark, a 20 percent commission is charged.

Boutique

Boutique sellers on Poshmark are sellers that operate more professionally, similar to a mortar store. To be a boutique on Poshmark means that the products sold are authentic, in new condition, and of good quality.

There is a couple of rules for boutique sellers, they should provide clear photos and product descriptions as proof of where the goods were bought. If you want to become a boutique seller, you need to get certified. 

Wholesale

In late 2015, Poshmark introduced a new service called Poshmark Wholesale. The portal allows sellers to buy bigger quantities of inventory to sell in their stores.

As such, sellers can take advantage of price discounts and make greater profits on their listings. To access the wholesale portal, sellers need to have at 10 or more sales, a rating of 4.5 or above, and the Boutique Certification.

Within the portal, sellers buy from established wholesale retailers such as April Spirit or Function & Fringe. Similar to the peer-to-peer transactions, Poshmark takes a percentage cut from each wholesale transaction. 

Promoted listings

There can be fees for items that a seller wants to be shown above others to get more visibility and attract potential buyers.

Is it possible to build a successful website like Poshmark?

It is better to have a detailed plan if you want to build a successful marketplace alternative to Poshmark. Here are several useful tips to consider while you building your application.

Positive customer experience

Providing a positive customer experience is very important for business nowadays. It means not only happy customers as a result of your performance but it can also bring you additional income.

Poshmark provides quick shipping with PoshPost (in cooperation with USPS). PoshPost doesn’t require stamps and troubles. When people buy items, Poshmark offers a pre-paid, pre-addressed label ready to be stuck on the box. After the purchase has been packaged, the seller can drop it off at a USPS mailbox or even have it picked up for free from their home!

Build a community

The key feature of Poshmark is its wide community. It isn’t only about fashion eCommerce but also a community where people can connect with each other and share their choices and preferences in fashion.

Posh Parties are organized by the platform and these shopping events allow people to meet up in the Poshmark app for shopping, sharing, and selling outfits and accessories. Posh Parties are a great opportunity to find listings and to get new followers.

Besides, Poshmark organizes PoshFests where people can meet their so-called Posh friends, listen to industry experts, learn how to grow a business, and get insights.

Creating a community and events are great engagement tools with your customers. Let’s overview what benefits get Poshmark from its social activity.

Prevent scams and inauthentic items

Fake goods as fashion items from exclusive designers are one of the main problems of online marketplaces. Poshmark fights with this issue via not releasing payment until the buyer confirms they’ve received the order that matches the description. Buyers have three days to return a product to the seller in case an item is misrepresented. If there is no claim is made within three days after delivery, payment is automatically sent to the seller. After that buyers won’t be able to get a refund.

Is secondhand marketplace a promising area for development?

Yes, it is a definitely promising avenue. There is a forecast that brand clothing (that was used before) market will reach $25 billion by the end of 2025, and its growth, although slowing, will still be well above the average growth of the trade market of clothing. We should admit that the secondhand market is really big and fast-growing. Only in the United States is the branded second-hand clothing market was $18 billion in 2019, or about 4% of the American clothing retail market according to the ThredUP report.

Is it expensive to build an app like Poshmark?

The price depends on many factors, including the number and complexity of features, development company rates, and whether the project is going to be developed from scratch or not. We recommend you to start development from an MVP that helps to understand how the users perceive a product, the barriers to its performances, and the improvements that can be made for improving the usefulness of the product in terms of UX, UI, and the technical aspects. After all these aspects get analyzed, then you can invest confidently in the future development of a product, think about premium features and services, and expect to get a good return on the investment. According to our estimation, the custom development from scratch will cost approximately $100 000.

Where should I start to design an app like Poshmark?

Building your unique solution can be a risky business so before start, you should better plan everything properly. It starts with an idea but if you do not know how to shape that idea and what audience will use your solution, then you will not uncover the full potential of your future project. So how to avoid this and create a solution that your potential audience needs? The answer is – concern the discovery phase before you initiate the software development. According to our experience whatever you represent (a startup or a successful company that needs digitalization), you need to dive into the discovery phase even if you think that you know everything about your business, future app, and potential users. On top of that, holistic research and gathering of information can help you to identify and eliminate all possible risks.

How much does it cost to build a website like Poshmark?

This is a matter of common interest, we can calculate the approximate cost of developing a social commerce application like Poshmark. The cost consists of many factors, including the number and complexity of features, development company rates, and whether the project is going to be developed from scratch. 

The development from scratch of an MVP will take 3-5 months. The development of a social commerce marketplace like Poshmark in the US and Europe will cost you around $160 000. To build such a project in Ukraine, it will cost approximately $100 000. That’s the cost of custom development from scratch.

It’s ok but could be better

At first I thought this was state of the art technology until I noticed the morphing function doesn’t update after each scan. I’ve asked several times for an update and apparently the main office is in France and not here in the US to get things fixed. After several trays, the morphing function to see those changes compared to previous movement isn’t working properly. I’ve asked my orthodontist and he referred me to the company directly and I still can’t get resolution.

Meta Calculator App Review and Alternatives

A multipurpose calculator for all your complex problems

We all need a calculator on occasion and Apple’s built-in one sometimes isn’t good enough. Luckily the Meta Calculator app is available and can make life easier! Meta Calculator can solve any mathematical problem. It works with algebra, calculus, probability, statistics, and just about everything in between.

The Graphs Blinded Me With Science

If you are a student or a professional in a field that requires specialized calculations you know the Calculator that comes with your iDevice has none of the functions or capability you require. This is where the Meta Calculator app can be a lifesaver. Of course you have a specific calculator for what you do or what your course you are taking, but if you forget it you’re lost. Meta Calculator is equipped with Graphing, Scientific, Matrix, and Statistics calculators, all in one easy-to-use environment.

In the free version of Meta Calculator you get the Graphing and Scientific Calculators. The Matrix and Statistics are both in app purchases for a mere 99 cents each. However, once you see the interface and functions of the two free calculators you will quickly realize that it is $1.98 well spent.

The Graphing Calculator is extremely deep and goes beyond the standard of what you expect. The interface will allow you to calculate up to five different linear equations, but will also graph the information for you in an easy-to-read graphic. You can keep your graph with a quick tap of the Save button for later reference or study.

The Scientific Calculator is a stroke of the same color as its partner in Meta Calculator as it provides the user with all the common functions needed. You also get the ability to store your calculations, as well as a built-in linear equations solver. This may seem like overkill, and a little odd. In reality it’s a nice little addition, as you don’t have to stop and go back to the Graphing Calculator which would slow your momentum.

Hopefully More Of The Same

Judging on the first two options, Meta Calculator provides you with in the free version of the app, I would be surprised if the other two were anything but stellar. Their Matrix Calculator boasts all the requirements you would need to any calculations utilizing matrices/vectors, finding the determinant and the size of the matrix can be as large as 5 x 5.

The Statistics Calculator allows you to calculate mean, sum, mode, and quarterlies, and lets you calculate and graph regressions. All the data can be entered in as “raw data,” “group data,” or “frequency distribution” to customize your needs.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  •  Four different specialized calculators in one easy-to-use app
  •  Graphics are clear and easy to save
  •  Developers included crossover ability between each calculator which streamlines the workflow

Cons

  •  Matrix and Statistics calculators are 99 cents each

Video Guide

Final Thoughts

Meta Calculator is the back up app you’ve been waiting for. If you utilize these style of calculators at all Meta Calculator is a must-have for that, “oh crap I forgot it” moment. Even though two of the calculators included are separate in-app purchases they are definitely worth it.

Hopefully a bundle will come soon as the developers have vowed to continually update Meta Calculator to “support more complex equations.”

How to Make a Camera App

Camera app development

Speaking of smartphones, today, you cannot miss such a moment as a built-in camera. Some do it only to match competitors, while others are trying to bring something new. Soon the performance race can grow into a megapixel war. Moreover, large companies really develop the market of mobile photography, inventing new and sometimes mind-blowing technologies. Multiple cameras, optical stabilization, and optical zoom – all these features are already available to the average consumer.

But raising such topic cannot but affect another point – namely, Augmented Reality app development (AR), which have already set the market development trends for the near future. We can recall at least the stunning success of such projects as Pokemon Go, Ingress, MSQRD or Prisma. These applications were at the top of the charts for a long time, and during that time they managed to establish tens of millions of users. Moreover, the trends are such that even Apple released its own API to support the AR in the iOS – ARKit. In this article, we want to touch the issue of camera app development. Given the fact that today the camera can not only take pictures but also participate in other processes – for example, in games and AR applications, these questions will also be indirectly tampered with.

What is the Best camera app?

If you want to build a camera app, it would be nice to find out what applications of such kind there are and see few custom camera example, just to set your thoughts in the right direction. So, the best camera apps in our humble opinion as follows:

VSCO

VSCO is a user-proven application with more than 50 million users, despite that the program was developed for the specific niche. Despite that fact and the orientation of developers on those people who are fond of photography (and not the mass consumer), success was achieved anyway. Its social orientation can also be considered as an interesting feature of the application. The VCSO was created as a kind of analog for photographers’ social network where everyone can exchange their works, share experiences or receive recommendations.

The program has an intuitive interface, so it can be used by not only professional photographers but also beginners. Among the advantages of the program, it is also worth noting a presence of a large number of advanced filters for photo processing and also built-in image editor. Another feature, as mentioned above, will be the ability for users to receive feedback on their work and learn from the example of specialists to improve their skills.

Now, about the shortcomings (of course, if they can be called so). There is a huge number of built-in high-quality filters in the application, which can be applied to images, but some of them must be bought. However, there is nothing wrong with such decision because developers are evolving their product, and that requires funds. The only significant (in our opinion) shortcoming is the modest settings of the camera, although the app gives some “freedom” in that. But this program is the most powerful photo editor for mobile devices designed both for Android and iOS, which gives almost limitless possibilities for your photos post-processing.

Prisma

A sensational application that blew up the charts of mobile application stores last year. Prisma can turn any shot or picture into a work of art in just one click. In this case, you can imitate the famous artists, making personal pictures or reproductions of the celebrated canvases.

The simplicity of the interface and accessibility of the application, the presence of interesting filters made this program popular in due time. With the help of the Prisma, you can easily make interesting photos for social networks or Instagram accounts.

Comparing this program with others in this article, it is worth noting that this application is more entertaining in nature and does not carry special customization options in the camera control modes.

Open Camera & Manual Camera

Two amazing applications for those who want to engage in mobile photography at a higher level. These programs allow getting full access to all camera functions in your smartphone. With these applications you can adjust the white balance, ISO, select focus points\range and adjust the exposure. Moreover, there is an opportunity of saving files in a lossless RAW file for the subsequent processing of the received pictures.

The Manual Camera allows to get full control of the camera on your device, but at the same time requires a lot of knowledge and a level of the photo theoretical fundamentals. That is why the program is not suitable for beginners, although professionals can get stunning shots in any conditions. The only drawback – the application is paid, but fully justifies every dollar spent.

The Open Camera, in turn, works well with automatic stabilization, allowing to reduce the risk of getting a blurry shot. The other feature – HDR in the automatic range optimization mode and also voice control when you turn on the front camera. And one more thing – the application is completely free.

The disadvantage is the poor quality of sound recording while shooting video via a smartphone.

Well, ok, guess it is all clear about custom camera applications, now let’s talk about some augmented reality applications which might make your head explode (not literally, of course)! So, if you are planning to build a startup in this niche, you should definitely know about the next apps:

Ikea Place

What could be better than a trip to buy new furniture in Ikea? A virtual representation of the assortment right at your home, of course. Today, you can choose the furniture you like through the application and “try it on” even before the purchase, simply selecting the necessary part from the catalog. This application displays furnishing on the screen of your smartphone in such a way as if it were happening in the real world. Thus, you can experiment with the design in your house without doing any repairs every time you want to change something.

AR MeasureKit

Augmented reality can be used both for entertainment purposes and for simplifying everyday life. For example, the application AR MeasureKit allows to make a ruler from your iPhone (in free mode), as well as many other tools (when buying the full version). With the help of new technologies, it is already quite realistic to measure the distance, length or even height of a person.

How to make a camera app

The smartphone camera today is no longer just a trend that manufacturers follow to keep up with the times, but a separate module that serves humanity. As in terms of entertainment/games, saving the user’s life moments with pictures and videos, but also in more routine tasks. If we consider the camera as an opportunity to create native applications with Augmented Reality, today, a rare developer did not move towards the development of this type of programs. Especially after a presentation of Apple’s API. Applications that use the camera will not be new to Instagram, Snapchat, and Prisma users, but they still have huge potential and can build a new community of users around them.

Cited below are the exact reasons why business experts recommend the use of mobile apps for the attainment of business success. Let’s dissect the details in the succeeding paragraphs. 

You can utilize a business mobile application for direct communication. 

Branding is about conveying the message of your brand to the audience. Remember that you have the so-called target market. This specific market consists of those people who are your potential customers. They have specific needs and demands. By utilizing an app, you will therefore be able to connect your brand to the target market. Those people whom you consider as your potential product buyers and users should understand the essence of your business. Hence, you need a platform which can serve as the channel for direct communication.

When there is a well-improved communication process between you and your potential market, there is a great chance that you can have more business opportunities. Letting the target market know the potency and benefits of your products or services is very crucial for the attainment of success. Hence, you should consider that an app is a direct communication tool. You can use it in conveying brand-related messages, like promotional campaigns, discount vouchers and the like. You can easily inform the audience through push notifications. 

It is valuable and important to make people happy. At the end of the day, this is the essence of branding. You need to satisfy the needs of the audience. This is through this process where you can meet your business objectives. The more users you can satisfy, the more chances of winning the tight competition. What is very important here is you can make your business really progressive through direct communication. And use a mobile app as a tool to communicate properly with the audience.

You can use a mobile app to increase customer engagement. 

Customer engagement is a very crucial aspect. It can make or break anybody’s business. What does it mean by engagement? This is a parameter in business which determines the trust level of the customers. When there is an increased engagement level, of course, it will lead to the increase in the number of leads and conversions. More people will buy and use your products. Why is it so? Because they feel that your brand can be trusted. 

Use an app for the purpose of increasing the engagement level of both the potential and existing customers. Their engagement can be manifested by how much time they will spend every single day while using your mobile app. There are tools to assess the statistical data related to app usage. All you need to do is to use a particular tool and let it work for you effectively. The main purpose of an app in this case is to notify the audience about the beauty of your offers. They have to be informed through the content and information related to your brand. 

Every time there is a question thrown at you regarding your business offers, your business mobile application should be able to answer that question. Doing this can streamline the process somehow and it has positive effects on your brand. Of course, the satisfied person who asks the question will be ignited to believe that your brand is the right one for him or her. It will lead to a higher level of curiosity which will result in more positive things. Your business will be recognized as a provider of great and effective solutions. 

You can then see an increase in the conversion rates. It simply means more people will be attracted to believe that your brand serves as a solution provider. That every time a person needs a solution, he or she has to just use his or her cellular phone being connected to the Internet where your mobile app is installed. The continuous use of your app can generate more sales and revenues. Therefore, it is really advised to have a relevant and content-rich mobile application. Your business will benefit from this process.

Increasing brand awareness level is possible with a mobile app. 

You need a tool to increase the awareness level of the customers. Remember that your business app serves as an extension of your brand. In other words, everything related to your brand must be evident in your mobile application. We already discussed in the section above the function of an app with respect to audience communication. Communicating with your audience (customers) must be done regularly. Otherwise, it can be hard for you to convince people that what you’ve got is perfect for them. That what you have made available on the market is the right solution to their problem. 

You really have to increase the level of brand awareness because this is the right way towards the achievement of your goals and objectives. A mobile app is a digital platform where you can showcase the stories of the real users of your products. This is a platform where the potential customers can read the testimonials and feedback from real customers. Thus, this is a great tool to expand your brand reach. As this happens, your business will be brought to the next level. In short words, a mobile app is effective to increase the level of customers’ brand awareness. 

Attracting new potential customers is possible when you have a relevant and information-rich mobile app. This is a rule of thumb in business to feed people with the right information and content. Hence, the structure and overall design must be created in a way that is directed towards the dissemination of brand content. In this case, you have to entrust the entire mobile app project to a credible agency. 

According to Ramotion’s CEO, Denis Pakhaliuk, “Choosing our offered services is a sound decision you can make for your business to prosper. Your business needs a mobile app which can help you in elevating the awareness level of the customers. Enticing new customers is not that easy. This is not a walk in the park, so to speak. But, you can realize your goals when you have the right tools and digital platform. This is where a mobile app plays its significant role. Your business success depends on the level of appreciation the target customers have with respect to your offers.

You can easily establish the loyalty of the customers with an app.

Building customer loyalty is another business requisite. As a matter of fact, this is one of the must-have aspects you should prioritize as a business owner. What is the implication when you enjoy an increased brand loyalty level among your customers? Simply put, you will be able to gain business sustainability. It will be translated to a more robust business operation. It will lead to more sales and revenues. Of course, these things become a reality because more customers are loyal to your brand. 

Brand loyalty is quite simple to understand. You have to only think of the so-called “repeat purchases”.” When there are more repeat purchases over months and years, it means there are more customers who are loyal to your brand. They are deeply committed to using your brand as their source of effective solutions. That every time they need a solution, it is your brand to pop out from their mind. That it is your brand where they will get their solution from.

To foster brand loyalty on a deeper level, you need to practice a rewarding system. Reward your customers with perks and benefits. And good news! Why? Because you can easily inform the customers about the reward system when you have a mobile application. This is an effective tool or platform which can help your business go to the next level. This is a great channel that can connect your brand to the audience. Always remember that! Hence, you need to have the right mobile app to represent your business on the app stores. 

In a nutshell

The facts why you need a mobile app if you are a business owner were already given above. What you should do right now is to look for a tested and reliable mobile app development company. Regarding its cost, don’t worry because it won’t cost you a fortune. Yes, you will invest in it. But just think that with a mobile app, your objectives and goals are attainable.

This improves customer loyalty and helps your business stand out from the competition. In the longer run, this results in better profitability and sustainability for your business.

How to choose the best mobile app development company?

In the last two decades, due to advancement in mobile application technology, the need for companies providing enterprise has raised manifolds. These range from start-ups, entrepreneurs, and even Fortune 500 companies. However, very few mobile app development companies have survived amidst the fierce competition. With so many choices, it can get a little overwhelming for businesses to choose from amongst the multiple options. Here is how the best mobile app development company can be chosen:

› SEE THE WORK PORTFOLIO:

By having a look at the work portfolio says a lot about the capabilities, capacities, and diversity of the kind of clients that the mobile app development company has had. This is the best way to get to know the expertise of the team and the way they have handled the projects. The number of years of experience that a company is also a good indication of their stability in the market.

› CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

This is the most impartial way to know the capabilities and delivery capacity of a mobile app development company. You should check for favourable customer reviews and feedback before selecting any company.

Why do barbers need an app?

Many business industries need the implement software solution to optimize and automate work processes. Barbershops are not an exception. It can be really tiring and boring to wait to make the hair cut in the long queue. Also, manual lists of clients have exhausted their necessity and accuracy. This process can much easier and more pleasant for clients as well as for barbers. We covered the key advantages of integrating your barbershop business with an on-demand app:

What Other Options Are There?

If your app is going to be more than just an additional business tool, it can turn around how you make money. Consider the fact that Uber or Airbnb are intermediaries that do not deliver services but provide a platform where homeowners meet tenants and passengers meet drivers. Their business model is Software as a Service (SaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS).

As a software provider, Uber and Airbnb make a profit from every deal made on the platform. Their ecosystems count millions of daily users and thousands of transactions. At this point, you use Airbnb to find a hotel, even though Airbnb is not a hotel business or hostel provider, it is a broker like Uber is.

To be a barber services provider can be the start of your business but the secret of successful delivery of services is booking optimization. That’s exactly what Booking.com does, gathering millions of travel dorms to its platform and advertising them to future guests, making it possible for the two to meet each other. As an intermediary, Booking.com gets its cut-off every transaction made on the platform.

We have been developing Uber-Like applications for a long time. Thanks to this we accumulated a huge base of knowledge, expertise, and even ready-made MVP. Using such modules, we reduce app costs down to the most affordable on the market.

• Share drawings with other users of Sketchpad via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, or with Intaglio on the Macintosh.

Snapchat and Instagram Face Filters

Snapchat and Instagram are the two mobile applications that literally blew away the community with their updates and innovations a number of times. The special filters that identify the faces in the picture are among the most significant innovative features. The feature receives an image through a smartphone camera’s lenses and puts funny elements over it (a dog face or a flower crown, for example), which is an implementation of the augmented reality technology (AR). In the given article, we will describe how Snapchat filters work, find out the basics of the Snapchat technology and describe the most common tools for the creation of software alike.

How Snapchat filters work: let’s begin with bare facts

For starters, let’s try to make sure that your application will be capable of bringing a decent profit after the release. In order to do that, you will have to analyze the MSQRD app development phenomenon.

Particularly, in the last few years, the filters have become quite a strong trend in the mobile software development sphere. Just check out the numbers – 1,6 million downloads of the MSQRD app, and that is only at the moment when Facebook decided to purchase it to repeat the success of the Snapchat facial recognition software (which engages around 173 million users with the smartphone’s screen daily). Impressed by the popularity of this type of software? We know that we are. Thus, let’s continue on with the principles of its creation.

How Snapchat filters work: general development principles

So, how to develop a face filter app? The first thing you will need to do is to choose the suitable API. The most commonly used ones among the developers are Google Cloud Vision API for Android, Google Mobile Vision iOS APIMicrosoft Cognitive Services, and Core Image API. Let’s figure out by what principles they operate.

In particular, each API goes through two phases in order to recognize a face: image analysis phase and image processing phase. Let’s consider each in details.

The first phase is a quite complex one from the perspective of the used algorithms’ structure. The algorithms, in turn, are commonly applied in machine learning and require the application of the electronic Gaussian filter. Usually, to implement the phase, a combination of such methods is used – Histogram of Oriented Gradients and Support Vector Machine (note that they are applicable only to photos and are not able to recognize the faces in the turned on camera mode).

The first method divides the image into interconnected cells. The cells are analyzed in various scales and, based on the direction of the brim and intensity of the color gradient, it is defined whether a certain fragment features a face or not (the second method – SVM is used for that process). Then, after the face is identified, the analysis and recognition of its separate elements begin (of eyes, lips, brows, etc.). For that, the operation of the facial landmark detection is conducted (you can find out more details about this procedure in this article). The operation scans the part of an image with a face (the app identifies it as a fragment situated inside the restricting frame created via the previous methods) and indicates the precise coordinates of all the facial elements on the 2D plane.

The Viola-Jones method based on the computer vision can be used as an alternative to HOG and SVM. It employs cascade classifiers and is able to recognize the faces in real-time mode. You can find out more info on this method in this scientific article.

Thus, we received an image fragment constricted by the limiting frame which includes a human face with 2D coordinates that define the location of cheekbones, brows, eyes, mouth, and nose. The next processing stage for this fragment will be an augmentation of a certain virtual object – the so-called mask (on the example of Snapchat – a dog face or a flower crown). Again, the received facial landmarks are used for that. They make possible the situation of a new object in the required place and scaled accordingly (for instance, when a flower crown image is augmented, the software defines the location of a forehead and temporal region). Moving on, let’s get to practice and try to choose the best suitable library for the implementation of the above mentioned processes.

You will have to accept the fact that to date, not a single library composed using additional software tools can precisely locate the facial landmarks. Doesn’t matter what library we take – an extremely popular OpenCV or some other not that widely used option. Let’s take for an example one of the most renowned IT-companies out there – PixLab, which firmly holds the niche of a provider of mobile software that features advanced graphical technologies. According to its programmers team’s experience in the facial filters app development, the most productive results can be achieved using the combination of Dlib and MagickWand libraries.

Also, among the favorites of many developers are such libraries as Stasm (used to indicate the facial landmarks; in order to create the restricting frame, you will have to apply third-party software solutions), Cambridge Face Tracker (this library also requires additional tools for face recognition), GPUImage (compatible only with the iOS-based projects), and libccy (this library is used for face recognition but is unable to define the coordinates of the facial landmarks). You can figure out the best fitting option for your particular case only by trial and error.

Back to theory. What else is required to begin the face detection masks development

Suppose you successfully picked the tools. Are there any other guidelines that could help create filters for your augmented reality technology-based app? Yes, there are. We present our own list below. The listed features are guaranteed to make your application stand out among other software with similar functionality.

Use up-to-date masks design. It seems reasonable to enrich your solution with concepts actively employed by other apps. Namely, the all-encompassing cuteness overload and kawaii. On the other hand, you can go with a political topic and create masks inspired by the image of some media characters. For that purpose. employ the services of a separate graphical designers team closely familiar with the latest tendencies that will be able to create something unique and memorable for you.

Employ the latest graphical solutions. Do not limit your designers’ space for imagination. Let them realize the most insane (seeming at first) ideas. This approach to creating the new masks can, with a great probability, grant their increasing popularity.

Work with professionals. Independent development of a filter-rich app is a very presumptuous step. It is better to employ the help of experts who have successfully implemented several projects with a face detection feature as machine self-learning uses quite complex for understanding technologies. Remember – you do not get a second chance to prove yourself to your target audience.

Integrate your app with renowned social networks. It is very important to provide your users with the ability to share the processed photos with their friends. Remember to integrate your application with popular social networks for that purpose (such a feature can also make a registration process significantly easier).

How to make face tracking filters: summary

As we can see, the development of filters that work by the mechanics similar to Snapchat or Instagram face detection is not a simple process. Considering the colossal profit an app can potentially bring after the release, we strongly recommend you to employ a team of experts for its development.

How Much Does a Hosting Server Cost Per User for a Social App?

When designing a business plan for a heavy load application, it is very important to take into account and accurately calculate such costs as the pricing of the hosting service where the application data will be stored. Large-scale applications, such as social networks, can become a real problem for their owners if the associated costs are calculated wrong initially.

Just imagine: thousands of users every day supplement the application database with messages, photos, and other media files – how much storage space is needed, how much can it cost and how much does a hosting server cost per user for a social network app? Will your application become a “dead” project because of the high maintenance expenses? In this article, we plan to describe the order of calculating the cost of server hosting for large applications to avoid unpleasant financial surprises after the app release.

What is the basis for calculating the average server cost per user?

It is important to keep in mind that server hostings are characterized not only by the provisioned storage space but also by communication channel bandwidth and hardware capacities. Thus, the mobile app backend hosting cost can be calculated based on the following indicators:

  • – The cost of each storage gigabyte;
  • – The cost of each megabit of bandwidth;
  • – The cost of the server’s performance.

Also, the cost of server hosting can be affected by the equipment maintenance expenses, technical support charges, and other factors.

How to calculate the cost

How much does a social app cost to run? Depending on the pricing parameters, the cost of server hosting for a heavy application can be calculated in several ways.

Calculation according to the storage space cost

A very simple calculation scheme, for which it is required to approximate the number of application users and the maximum storage limits for each of them. The rough estimation is simple: if the cost of storing the object is $0.1 per GB of space per month and your application is calculated, say, for 5000 users, with a limit of 2 GB, the result of multiplying all the numbers (5000 × 2 × 0.1) the monthly cost of the server would be $1000.

It is important to understand that this calculation gives only an approximate cost of required hosting. The actual number of users may differ, and each user will not necessarily use all the space provided to them. Thus, you can make an assumption about the actual use of the server space (as a percentage of the initial number of users and disk space) and use this coefficient to adjust the appraisal.

Own / rented server

Buying or renting a whole server can significantly reduce the cost of hosting, but requires the seed capital. For example, for an application designed for the same 5000 users and 2 GB storage limit (10,000 GB or 10 TB), you need to purchase about 2 servers with 8x 2TB SATA disks (taking into account the cost of server space for user data, operating systems, application backend and RAID reservation), the cost of which is about $3000 each, plus additional equipment (racks, etc.), the totals would approximate to $6500. If you have such a starting amount, you can recoup the costs for 2 years at a server cost of $270-300 per month. Thus, the price of one GB of space for one user would equal to $0.06.

Making a long-term business plan with the calculation of hosting costs for the above scheme it is important to consider the expiration of the equipment. Any device has an approximate service life and needs regular replacement.

Another variant suitable for those who do not have sufficient starting capital is server equipment rental. Calculating the cost to maintain an application when renting server hardware can be carried out according to the same scheme, but taking into account the monthly rental fees.

Testing the application to determine the required hosting parameters

All the previous estimation methods are based only on the approximate assumptions of the user numbers and the necessary space for each user. Such calculations do not take into account the traffic, the required processor power, the average load on the server and many other factors. The calculation for these models is suitable for compiling a primary business plan for understanding the profitability of the application even before work on it is started.

However, in order to obtain more or less accurate data on the required server capacity and volume for an already developed application and, accordingly, calculate the cost of server hosting, a deeper approach is needed.

The best and accurate calculations are given by testing the required application efficiency using the specially developed software. Such test programs create “virtual users” that simulate the actions of real users of the application, measuring the loads to identify the optimal configuration of the application’s server part infrastructure.

The essence of the testing

To test the application architecture, worker threads mirroring virtual users are used, each of which can execute one of three action scenarios:

  • – Light (authorization, login to the server, viewing the application partitions, sending/receiving requests);
  • – Medium (to the light scenario’s actions, sending/receiving messages, uploading photos, viewing photos of other users, sending/receiving pictures are added);
  • – Heavy (extensive exploitation of all the application features).

Typical time between each script action is established to 1 second.

Thus, gradually increasing the number of threads, each of which randomly engages one of the scenarios, the testing application measures the load on the server part of the application in its different configurations. As soon as any element of the application starts to work incorrectly, the test stops and changes the infrastructure configuration.

Most of the established outsourcing software development companies have such sophisticated in-house testing programs.

Results

The result of the test is the optimal configuration of the application infrastructure, which can support the maximum number of users simultaneously using the application. It also calculates the maximum hardware capabilities required for the application, based on which you can calculate the server hosting cost for the application most accurately.

Also, based on the results of the test, you can choose the hosting model (renting server hosting, renting server equipment or colocation, own server), which will not only be most advantageous financially but also meet the requirements of the application in the case of high loads.

Summary

When developing large applications similar to social networks, an important part of the business plan will be to estimate server costs per user. For preliminary calculations at the design stage of the application, you can employ simple mathematical models (number of users/space for each – to calculate hosting and storage costs/necessary equipment expenses/monthly fees – when buying or renting equipment).

However, for accurate calculations of the cost of hosting and choosing the most beneficial server interaction model (purchase, lease, colocation) in mobile development for Android or iOS, professional testing is necessary that would take into account all the appropriate factors. Only after calculating the necessary application load on the server can you tell exactly which server parameters will best meet the needs of the application and, based on the received data, clearly estimate the cost of hosting – total and average server cost per user.

How to Use Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Mobile Apps

What is Mobile Artificial Intelligence?

We all are aware of the fact, that we are living in a time of technological revolution, where every day brings new developments from the tech world. Artificial intelligence is not something that suddenly emerged from nowhere. Its idea occurred in 1956 during the conference at Dartmouth University.

At that time it was regarded as something that will be mostly used for military purposes or something that will replace humans in certain areas. Yet it is not actually what we see now, is it? Mostly artificial intelligence assists us in our everyday work, but we are still far away from that distant future, where robots and smart technologies are able to do human work as good as live people do. The main problems of artificial intelligence include programming computers for such tasks as:

  • Knowledge
  • Reasoning
  • Problem solving
  • Perception
  • Learning
  • Planning
  • Ability to manipulate and move objects

But what about mobile artificial intelligence? This technology has already existed on the market for some time, regardless of whether we are thinking about it or not. Although artificial intelligence is often associated with an intelligent personal assistant, it is mostly used to study our habits and patterns inside various apps in order to serve us better.

Artificial intelligence in smartphones

Artificial Intelligence in smartphones is mostly used for two main purposes:

  • Learning user’s behavior patterns
  • Automated reasoning

Learning user’s behavior can be extremely useful in two cases:

1. When an app provides a variety of different content. In this case, artificial intelligence is used to understand and memorize user’s preferences in order to provide more suitable content for each person separately. Apple Music app is a good example of such use of artificial intelligence;

2. When developers want to get systematized feedback. At this rate, artificial intelligence helps a developer to get an understanding of customer’s needs and interests. What kind of content is the most popular? How to make more popular content? What should be added or removed in order to get more users? It is much easier to get answers to these questions with the use of AI.

Creators often use artificial intelligence both to get systematized feedback and to provide the most suitable content for users, as it helps to understand their target audience much better.

AI has also another important function, which is automated reasoning. This one is more complicated than studying of user’s behavior, as it requires problem-solving on the basis of many algorithms. For example, Uber uses automated reasoning to find the best routes (it includes not only calculating the shortest way but also monitoring the traffic situation in order to get to the destination point as fast as possible).

AI in mobile apps

The first 1-4 sessions of using an app are extremely important because during that period of time user understands whether he wants to continue using this app or not. So it is the developer’s priority to make every next session more useful and more memorable than the previous one was. And surely they use Artificial Intelligence to achieve the best results.

Recommendation service helps them succeed in it. This is the simplest application of artificial intelligence that many mobile apps use. Basically, it studies users’ preferences and interests based on their previous choices and offers the most appropriate content. This approach is used by many apps, including Netflix and Pinterest. So, again, adding AI in mobile app is quite a promising idea.

AI-powered mobile app development

You don’t need a hundred developers to add AI to your app. There are many forms of AI, some simple like pattern recognition, some more complex like determining what someone is asking for. There exist open source solutions for hundreds of AI tasks.

Amazon also provides some Machine Learning capabilities for the average developer, including Amazon ML, Image Recognition, and the still beta Lex. With Lex, you can build a full conversational AI by training it what responses to give. It allows you to parse natural language and come up with a query. The best examples of such a use of artificial intelligence is Amazon Echo and Apple HomePod.

Why add artificial intelligence to mobile app

By adding Artificial Intelligence technology to your mobile app, you automatically personalize user’s experience in the multifaceted interface.

Currently, consumer expectations are the number of errors, download speed and overall user experience.

Statistics say that nowadays people rely more on their phones than they do on their laptops and computers when looking for information, fresh ideas and advice.

In simple words, it is most important for the developer to create a simple yet useful interface so that the user was comfortable with it. This usually means that such an app must be smart (in this case “smart” means that it requires machine learning algorithms).

Best Artificial intelligence app for Android

The thing is, you can’t tell which is the best Artificial intelligence app for Android, but here is a list of some apps, that definitely deserve your attention:

• Allo

Not so long ago, Google introduced its new application “Allo.” It is used to conduct smart conversations through the use of Google Assistance. Allo analyzes the user’s behavior in order to give a definite answer. With this application, you can also surf the internet and watch videos on YouTube;

• AIVC (Alice)

This is a fairly common assistant, which will help you interact with applications such as maps, weather, notes, calendar, time, as well as do some simple mathematical calculations. With this application, you can also write SMS messages and make calls. It’s not as complex or smooth as something like Google Now but it’s not a bad option if you just need something simple;

• Easy launcher

A launcher for Android. It obeys user’s voice commands, opens websites and apps and it is used to open settings, switching on or off networks like Bluetooth, WiFi, making sound go louder or quieter;

• Evi

It is specially designed to listen to you, and give clever answers to your questions. Evi uses a variety of different resources to find information and answer your questions. And it can also convert units and currencies on your command. Evi is quite simple in use, you will definitely like it;

• Pinterest

This one is not an assistant, but Pinterest also uses artificial intelligence. It is a network, where you can find all sorts of images. Mostly Pinterest is used to find inspiration, as it’s interface is specially designed to look for similar images or pieces of images;

• Google Now

Last, but not least. It uses data from all Google services that a person has (like Gmail, Calendars, Maps, Search, YouTube, and others.) and then gives all required information to the user. It is often compared to Siri (and the truth is, it is Siri’s big rival).


We live in a world where more and more people are using their mobile devices to complete tasks. This has caused a new market for mobile devices, which is expected to grow from 3.8 billion in 2016 to 5 billion by 2020.

Mobile applications have become the new medium for delivering digital content and services. Businesses that have embraced this technology have seen a significant increase in customer engagement, customer conversion rates, and brand awareness. This is partly due to the fact that apps provide an interactive way of presenting information about a company’s products or services.

In order for an app to function successfully on a mobile device, it needs to be optimized for touchscreens as well as specific operating systems such as iOS and Android.

So, here is pretty much everything you need to know about how to use artificial intelligence in mobile apps. Good luck with it!

Mobile App vs Mobile Website: Which is Best for Your Business?

No doubt, nowadays, the IT world calls for mobile solutions. Both mobile app and mobile site have their advantages and disadvantages.

But what is best for a particular type of business? We’ll try to explain.

In this essay, we will try to give an unbiased review of the arguments that we have deduced for ourselves by trial and attempts to reach the best method of development, as much as possible. It will be arguments, which, we hope, will help you decide which platform you should choose in development projects: mobile app or mobile website. And in the end – we will try to systematize the writing, so it can be easily used in the future.

For whom this article will be useful? If you are an aspiring startup or already established business (though perhaps you are a company that is trying to understand how the things go or just maybe want to convert the mobile site to app), then this article fits the bill – you will find a vast deal of useful information here. And, of course, responsible for a “mobile app vs mobile website” question.

Web app vs mobile app. The beginning

In order to fully immerse into the subject and come to an understanding of the issue globally, let’s think about why we start thinking about such things and what is the difference between app and website?

The trend is that the number of mobile users (people who surf sites using smartphones or tablets) on various resources grows geometrically – ie there are more and more new users daily. This means that most of your site’s or service audience now comes to with a portable device.

This is where the question arises: what to do, to please the audience, so that everyone feels comfortable – both desktop and mobile users? Create a native mobile application, or take a course on the mobile web?

This contributes to the popularization and accessibility of smartphones, mobile Internet, and public wi-fi. But do not ignore the modern pace of life, which doesn’t let get you bored. So today, for many people, it’s easier and more convenient to go online from mobile devices.

App vs Mobile Site: How to choose?

It is important to remember that there is no ideal solution for all appearing questions. Like this – both methods have advantages and disadvantages and are used to achieve certain goals. Speaking about the relevance, it is worth noting that these decisions will be a trend in the near future, and in it would be not entirely correct to oppose one another because both solutions have their right to exist and are covering different tasks.

Today it is assumed that there are two ways to build custom implementation of the project: to design native application or mobile website. Each of the aforementioned approaches of site or service optimization has both pros and cons, therefore, it is extremely important to carefully analyze them to choose the best option for the task at hand.

Examples

For example, mobile website can only provide users with relevant content in a more convenient way for mobile use, while the overall functionality of both versions of the site can either be the same or different. But the native business mobile application can perform completely independent tasks, which may differ from the functionality and design of the site.

What is a mobile website. For ease of understanding, let us assume that a mobile website is a specialized site, adapted or designed for viewing and use on your mobile device. The site may include interactive components using different frameworks or different browser integrations. Such implementation is called the web application. To avoid confusion, we will assume that any option that runs through the mobile browser is a mobile website.

And, within this article, let’s think that the development under any of the existing mobile operating systems – is a mobile application.

Looking at the provided facts, the first conclusions suggest themselves. Namely, if it’s necessary to “share” ready-made functionality of the service without changing it, but merely adapt it for mobile users, then you should choose the best mobile version. Conversely, if a particular content is required, or in some extended functions, it is necessary to look towards the mobile application. Simple, right? Let’s proceed to another app vs website cases.

Difference between app and website (Pros and Cons)

Since we dealt with the “formal” issues, let’s look at some pros and cons, which also affect the choice of one option and may significantly outweigh some of the opposite arguments.

• Development (design) complexity

Both options can be difficult to develop, it all depends on the desired result, the level of quality of the product and the required functions. But often mobile website development is easier and faster (though it has limited features) while app development requires several versions for each platform and therefore has higher cost.

• Maintenance and support

We can say that at this point the advantage is on the mobile site’s side because the support and application update requires more time and testing resources. But again, it all depends on the individual case.

• Functionality

And here the application wins unconditionally. Mobile website doesn’t have any OS ecosystem rules while apps can operate system’s built-in features and hardware. If you need to perform any action with user’s device hardware (GPS, NFC, camera etc), the clear choice is to develop a native application.

• Purpose

The mobile version of your website can be accessed (and probably already focused) for existing and future users because it requires no installation. What cannot be said about the application. On the other hand, users find apps safer than websites, due to app store approval rules.

Mobile app vs Mobile website

Summarizing all the above, we present a small table where you can quickly peek some of these points, for quick decision-making, or weighing the facts for or instead the web app vs mobile app.

How to choose between mobile app and mobile site?

Coming a long way from the beginning to the end of the article, you probably already have identified the difference between these two types of representation services for mobile users for yourself. We agree that the issue is rather complex and ambiguous since the final choice may depend on many factors and there is a huge number of followers of both mobile applications and mobile websites.

The Role of Big Data in Mobile App Development in 2022

The digital world is similar to our ecosystem – there is always room for evolution. Thousands of unparalleled development opportunities are introduced day-in and day-out, and there’s no stopping it!

When it comes to growth opportunities, the mobile application development industry is at its apex.

With around 4.57 billion people hooked to their phones, more businesses are building mobile applications to attend to both internal and external customers.

This competition has created a pressing need to stay updated with the customer needs, swiftly altering market trends, and advances in technology.

As a business, to achieve success and out-perform your competitors, let data propel your decisions. Big Data lets you uncover hidden customer preferences and use them to build high-tech mobile apps.

What exactly is Big Data?

To understand what exactly Big Data is, here is its definition:

Big Data is information that has more variety coming in huge volumes and with a higher velocity and veracity. These are also known as the four Vs of Big Data.

Big data is a field that treats ways to analyze, systematically extract information from, or otherwise deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. 

Wikipedia

Big Data is a bigger, more intricate set of information derived from the latest data resources.

These data collections are extremely voluminous and cannot be handled by conventional data processing software. But these data sets can be used to solve business issues that were initially difficult to tackle.

With Big Data technology, it is easy to process information gathered to obtain rich and real-time company insights. These are related to product management, profit, risk, users, augmented shareholder value, and performance.

In the world of Big Data, the key aspect is speed. Conventional analytics focused on scrutiny of old data, while Big Data analytics focuses on real-time data.

The Four V`s of Big Data

  • Variety

This refers to various types of data derived from different resources, developed by people and machines. These are available as structured, semi-structured and unstructured data types.

  • Volume

The amount of information that’s developed is huge when compared to traditional data. While for some it could be tens of terabytes, for others it might be hundreds of petabytes.

  • Velocity

This is the rate at which the data is created. It is a never-ending process, even though you’ve fallen asleep.

  • Veracity

Data is a valuable source, but it is of no use if it isn’t true. Big Data is derived from several sources; therefore, you must verify the veracity/quality of data.

The role of Big Data in application development

The significance of Big Data is huge since it compresses data derived from video and voice recordings, social media, unstructured and structured data, and machine data. 

When it comes to mobile app development, Big Data gives developers more leverage over essential external factors. It also lets companies compare, understand, and evaluate the app’s usage so that they can head up to future objectives.

With Big Data, businesses can extract comprehensive insights and information regarding user experience. This helps them build mobile apps that are in line with the customers’ demand.

TOP 5 Benefits of Big Data in mobile app development

For a mobile application to be downloaded frequently, it needs to be engaging, quick and easy to use.

The most essential aspect of it, however, is to meet the needs and expectations of a user. Using Big Data to develop mobile applications helps in that context. Here are some of its benefits:

  • Understands users expectations

An application is known to be the best when it meets the customers’ needs. But this increases the expenses of maintaining the app.

When you use Big Data, you can easily evaluate the flow of information produced by users daily. You will also be provided with useful insights as Big Data constantly garners the users’ needs.

With this technology, a company can understand the interaction and reaction of users from various demographics. This further will help you come up with quality and innovative mobile application ideas.

  • Analyzes the user experience

The realm of mobile app development is growing at a faster pace. Due to this, developers must understand the way users use the app along with their needs.

By using Big Data technology for app development, you can thoroughly analyze the users’ experience. This will provide you with a detailed analysis of their engagement for every feature and page.

With this analysis, you can create a list of things that users want or demand to be changed or improvised.

  • Offers access to real-time data

In today’s time, companies have to constantly keep updating their business tactics to stay ahead of the curve!

Big Data, in this aspect, offers promising end-results with full access to real-time data. It also provides real-time analysis of information.

This helps you make real-time and data-driven decisions to enhance the user experience and customer satisfaction. It also assists to make more profits.

  • Improves the performance of the app

Developers can now track the traffic generated by the application with complete ease – all thanks to Big Data technology.

They can also analyze the user engagement for specific pages and features, and gather data regarding factors that affect the performance of the app. This allows the developers to enhance the performance and increase the number of users.

  • Personalizes the User Experience 

With Big Data, you can optimize the search, make it less taxing, and more intuitive for users.

You can evaluate the users purchase patterns, social behavior, and demographic data to alter your business tactics as per their needs. You can even add features in the data to offer fast and smarter self-service.

Personalize the user experience as much as you can, as this will increase user interaction.

Using Big Data, you can nurture the features via various formats and structures offered by app development companies.

Final Thoughts

With cut-throat competition in the industry, it is essential to invest in quality hours. This is because the influence of Big Data on companies building mobile apps is ready to alter the pattern of operations.

You will also have to hire mobile application developers with a complete understanding of Big Data to stay ahead in the competition. For example, to hire flutter developers with great experience might take you a while. 

In the future, with advancements in technology, meaningful mechanism, excellent digital media channels, and innovations, the phase of development is going to be more efficient.

Popular Posture Apps to recommend in 2021

The iconic human evolution chart may need to be revised. Most of us no longer walk fully upright.

“Naturally aligned human beings have become the minority in our population, a true rarity,” states the American Posture Institute, which estimates that 80% of the population suffers from posture-induced back pain. Collective treatment surpasses $1 billion a year.

It’s not surprising: Over 86% of U.S. workers sit for the entire workday, while the average time spent daily on a mobile device hovers at five hours. In total, Americans spend almost 11 hours a day on a screen, according to a recent Nielsen report. That means hunched shoulders and curved, forward-leaning “text necks.”

In the long term, this equates to a medley of potential health hazards, including fatigue, muscle tension, difficulty breathing, hampered immune functions, chronic back pain, osteoporosis, dowager humps, even depression.

If you too, like me now sitting on the couch, then this article will be useful for you. Quarantine has completely changed many people’s habits. Some of them can be detrimental to our health. I have found and compiled everything you need to know about what apps will help your posture.

There will be two sections in this article with different apps that are designed to keep the user’s back straight.

#1: Best Reminder Apps:

Reminder apps are the easiest to implement, but they will help you get into the habit of keeping your back straight.

For me, this is the way to go. I’m such a character that when I’m immersed in things, I completely forget to take health pauses. For example, I installed the 20-20-20 app to rest my eyes.

The Best Posture Apps

Have you ever considered using a posture reminder app to keep your spine in line during the day?

We all know proper posture is important to overall health and well-being, but it can be difficult to break a poor posture habit and focus on keeping our backs straight and heads up, especially when we’re all burying our faces in our devices. Fortunately, in this age of prevalent technology, our computers and phones now offer apps and programs that can remind us to check our posture and even monitor our body position. Read on to discover the pluses and minuses of some posture reminder apps and programs available today and determine what best fits your needs for a posture check prompt.

  1. Upright.
    UPRIGHT is a posture app for iPhone and Android that works by way of a wearable device and connectivity.
  2. MacBreakZ.
    MacBreakZ is a posture app for desktop computers.

  • Android App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scratchu.app.a30dayposturemakeover
  • Website: https://www.posturemakeover.com/

Posture Man Pat

Pros: This innovative program uses the Y-axis of your computer webcam to monitor your head position. It will alert you by sound or screen dimming if your head moves out of alignment -the program is visually small and subtle on your screen. Best of all, it’s free!

Con: Like the previous program, it’s only available on Mac computers.

Perfect Posture Workout

Pros: This iPhone app is only $0.99 and quite customizable. Start by standing against a wall with your phone in your pocket, and the app calibrates your posture then guides you through exercises accordingly. It also vibrates to alert you if you slouch and tracks your posture progress over time. Since it’s a phone app, it’s helpful during any number of daily activities.

Con: Sorry, Android users – this app is for iOS only.

Lumo Back

Pros: This app is for those who want constant and super-accurate monitoring via a wearable technology system. (It’s available on both iOS and Android.) Once you set up a small monitor, worn on an elastic waistband, it continuously sends data to your phone via Bluetooth. An easy-to-understand stick figure avatar turns green when it senses good posture and yellow if you need improvement.

Con: While the app itself is free, the wearable tech option isn’t cheap – it’s an investment at $149.95.

Nekoze

Pros: This free computer program is also fun. Nekoze is the Japanese word for stooped, as in the shape of a scared cat’s rounded back – so a cartoon cat meows on your screen to remind you to straighten it out. (It can also be set to silent if you’re in a quiet office.) You can additionally customize its sensitivity and watch videos of muscle stretches designed to improve posture.

Con: This cute cat will only meow on Mac computers.

In some cases your device or operating system will guide you toward the available posture reminder app or program that’s right for you – as will your budget. From there, evaluate your habits to determine app attributes that will be most helpful. Do you get caught up in your work and need reminders at pre-set intervals to stretch and relax? Or would constant monitoring be more apt to keep you aligned? Maybe you’re a visual learner who prefers to take advantage of teaching videos.

A 2014 Health Psychology study found that participants in bad posture were more likely to experience bad moods and low self-esteem. Inversely, those who sat upright exhibited more confidence and positivity.

#2: IoT Smart Apps:

These are technological projects that combine the capabilities of wearable devices (gadgets) and functional applications.

Wearable tech is still in its early stages. Sensors will continue to get smaller and more lightweight — and, it’s hoped, cheaper. “We have just scratched the surface,” says OMSignal’s Mackey. Engineers are working on ways to not just monitor vital signs, but to predict or prevent problems. Someone with a triple bypass, for instance, might put on a smart shirt and have a medical team monitor the biometric data, or an alarm might go off if something seems wrong.

Your Apple Watch

Apple Watch is a smartwatch device that helps you to maintain healthy posture. It can be installed on any iOS device with watchOS 4 or later version.

A posture app will automatically detect your body’s posture and provide feedback, telling you to make an adjustment if it detects that you are slouching. There are many types of apps, some are free while others have a paid subscription that provides more features.

The Verdict

I didn’t end up wanting to keep using any of these. They were mostly burdensome to set up, irritating after several hours, and not terribly exciting after Day One. It’s not that gadgets aren’t helpful, but that it’s all too easy to shut them off once they start annoying you.

The Effects of Poor Posture

Everyone knows that poor posture leads to pain and tension. At the end of the day, your muscles are sore, you feel the need to crack your neck, and your lower back is killing you. These are all effects of poor posture. But poor posture can lead to even more negative effects on your body that you may not recognize.

Additional effects of poor posture on your body include:

  • Worsening of arthritis symptoms
  • Feelings of fatigue
  • Poor circulation
  • Varicose veins
  • Low mood
  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches and more

While nearly 65 million adults report having experienced back pain in the recent past, a recent survey showed that only 47% reported being concerned about their posture.

Have you been experiencing any of the symptoms listed above? Your posture could be affecting your body even more than you realize. If so, it may be time to invest in a posture app. Luckily, there are tons of them out there. We’ve reviewed a collection of them below to take the guesswork out of finding the best posture app for you.
