Facebook will launch a new app designed for use on television hardware, such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung’s Smart TV platform. The app will be video-based, providing a big-screen experience for Facebook members. Speaking at the Code Media conference, Facebook’s partnerships VP Dan Rose, said: “A lot of people when they’re watching video on News Feed during the day will save it for later because they don’t have time to watch that three-minute video. Now it’s easy to go on your TV if you want to do that at night.” It’s part of a major push into video for the social network. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has recently spoken about plans to commission longer-form, high quality video content, which now has a further place

Melbourne, Australia - May 23, 2016: Close-up view of Google Play Store on Android smartphone and Apple's App Store on iPhone. Both stores allow users to download app, music, movies and TV shows.

Adverts, in-app payments, and one-off up front costs may be putting users off downloading your app, according to research commissioned by Tutela. The Canadian analytics company also investigated the viability of an alternative app revenue stream, based on data collection, during the same research. Apparently, 63% of people avoid apps because of too many ads, and aren’t that keen to pay for an app up front, or for an in-app charge to unlock new features, either. The research shows only 12% were likely to pay any in-app fee, and only 17% wanted to pay a standard flat rate download charge. Tutela has an ulterior motive for illustrating how these monetization techniques can slow app adoption. By using its SDK, developers earn revenue by collecting anonymous

Android Nougat

  Google is adding a new way for developers to integrate Progressive Web Apps with the Android mobile operating system. In the past, adding a web app to the home screen involved a simple shortcut, which behaved like a Chrome shortcut and wasn’t deeply embedded in the operating system. That’s changing. In Chrome Canary, and eventually Chrome 57, Android users that add a shortcut to a Progressive Web App to their home screen will find it works much more like a traditional app. It will appear on the home screen, and in the app drawer, plus it’ll appear under Settings. Additionally, it will be able to receive incoming intents from other apps, and a long press on the icon will show notification controls for Android,

In the ocean of mobile apps, when both iOS and Android platforms have more than 4 millions apps combined, it takes a lot of hard work to make an app stand out. In a sense the situation reminds the Darwin’s phrase that encapsulates Natural Selection theory “Survival of the fittest”. One of the staples of a mobile app survival on an app market is its UX, which stands for User Experience Design. Recently Zymr, inc., a cloud applications provider, has published a guide that illustrates what it takes to deliver top quality mobile app user experience design. Download the complete guide and get a comprehensive picture of how an app UX is capable to give you a leg up on your competitors.
