When Digital World Turns Out To Be Real

QR codes, or “Quick Response” codes, are a mechanism to codify data for quick recognition. They’ve been used in package tracking applications for some time, and apparently they’re hugely popular with mobile phone users in Japan and become even more popular due to their unlimited possibilities. Now it is invading the rest part of the world. Snap a picture of a QR code with your phone’s camera, and your phone can then decode the info and do something useful — usually load up a URL contained within the code to alleviate the tedium of typing.
You may soon see QR Codes in a magazine advert, on a billboard, a web page or even on someone’s t-shirt. Once it is in your cell phone, it may give you details about that business (allowing users to search for nearby locations), or details about the person wearing the t-shirt, show you a URL which you can click to see a trailer for a movie, or it may give you a coupon which you can use in a local outlet.

Soon this functionality will be implemented on our site as well. And your possibilities in creating apps for iPhone/iPad/Android will become really unlimited.

Our Indespensable Helpers in Household Duties

While holidays people are wholly busy with preparation for the holiday. Shopping is one of the things which takes much time and sometimes becomes even tiresome. But not any more according to the survey. At first people started using computing hardware to make orders via internet. Instead of going shopping they just stayed at home and still bought what they needed.
The trend has undergone a change. Now mobile devices seem to be most used for shopping especially in the cases when they have no access to their PCs. The flexibility and availability of devices have made them an indespensable tool for solving everyday tasks. For example, it was found that during Christmas, 24 percent of shoppers visiting retail websites were on mobile devices. This result can't help impressing. The figures will change and still more folks will find it easier and more comfortable to use their mobile devices instead of getting stuck in traffic jams and wasting time. By the way you can order an item while driving as well. Appreciate your time, there are more serious things than going shopping in our lives.

What Expects Us In Future?


In the era of high technologies mobile devices are becoming more and more necessary and spreading widely all over the world. According to survey stats iphones today are available in 123 countries and it goes without saying that their number will just increase in the nearest future. Concerning particular kinds of media the figures don't seem to be so optmistic first of all it goes about TV via iTunes which is on only in 6 countries and music is spread in 51 countries. Only one thing combines all countries using mobile gadgets and this is a mobile app. It is easy to download, install and then regularly run on your device. As the experience shows, pretty soon time spent on apps will be quite comparable with the time people spend on books and music using their devices.Apps are media. Not only are they a form of media in the way that consumer software and games have always been considered media. But increasingly, they are also subsuming other forms of media.

And it is a well-known fact that mass media mould public opinion. Apps are not the exception, they will attract more users, and probably in future will become one of the major reasons to have an iPhone at all.

It's obvious that obtaining your own mobile app will help you fulfil lots of tasks and even in some way influence your business and lifestyle. A lack of programming skills won't make you vulnerable as there are services which make it possible to create apps without coding and in some minutes. It's a high time to mull the thing over as in some years their role will be just strengthened and life hardly will be imagined without mobile devices and the apps installed on them.

True Story From Snappii User

Yesterday was the most important and happiest day of the year, the day when all the members of the family traditionally gather together at the table which is close to be broken under the pressure of tastiest food and drinks. It is a high time to exchange gifts as well.
I was as usual absorbed with my work and totally forgot about looking for gifts for my friends. No, don't think I'm absent-minded and unreliable guy. I bought gifts for most of my relatives and acquaintances but still, you know it's difficult to keep them all in mind, so some of the presents I was going to buy straight before Christmas Eve. I was rushing through the shops full of souvenirs, toys and the similar stuff but still it wasn't the thing I was looking for. Suddenly my iPhone gave a squeak and I decided to figure out what it was. I rummaged in my pockets and finally got it out of it. It was a message and namely a notification sent from one of the convenient stores not far from my house. They were offering great amount of things which could be really good presents and by the way there were discounts. I went straight there and bought all what was needed. Then none of my friends left deprived. I saved my time and money and satisfied came back home earlier than it was expected.
Christmas was a success! I met people whom haven't seen for ages. Today after the holiday I've just remembered about the notification which helped me a lot. I actually decided to make the app of my own which could immediately tell my clients about the offerings in my cafe. I searched in the Web to find out a way to create an app without programming skills and fortunately got luck. Snappii service helps people like me (non-programmers) create apps in minutes and with no coding. I spent some hours and ,hurray, my app was ready. It will allow customers to find my locations, participate in discussions, take and email photos and many more. But the crucial role for me played Dashboard which can be used to send Push Notifications and keep the customers always informed with the news they really need. I enjoy this service and am greatly impressed by the support assistance they have. After holidays my app will be reviewed and seems to be approved by Apple and will go live in the Appstore. I'm looking forward to it and will advise this service to everyone. No doubt, you will find here what you were looking for corresponding to your business.

The increasing role of mobile devices in everyday life.


Google took a look back how the world searched in 2011 which is gradually coming to its end.
The most remarkable fact is that smartphone and tablet use accelerated rapidly: Google saw a 440% increase in traffic from tablets on its AdMob network between Dec. 2010 and in Nov. 2011, according to stats posted on the Google Mobile Ads Blog.
The use of mobile in physical retail environments was particularly interesting: In a study conducted with IPSOS earlier this year, eight in 10 smartphone owners said they use their devices to help with shopping, from locating retailers to running price comparisons — a trend Amazon smartly capitalized on this December by offering consumers a discount for running a price comparison on its Price Check App. A full 70% of smartphone owners claim to use their devices while in stores, and 77% have used their phones to contact local businesses.
And that is only the start as users' need in mobile devices will be only increasing in the nearest future. Mobile apps will promote the usage of such devices as more and more people become aware of the fact that they help them qualitatively change their lives to the best.

And what about you? What part do mobile devices play in your life?
