Blockchain In Mobile Application Market [Infographic]

Posted By: Arin Dey - November 15, 2019
Blockchain technology has gained huge popularity in very less span and people started terming it as one of the most reliable and secure technologies developed in this century. Blockchain not only does it supports a wide range of functionality and applications, but it also offers the impenetrable security and automation which made this technology to sit on the top. Considering these factors, we can say that this technology has the potential to serve in complicated industries such as mobile app development. To get a detailed understanding of how blockchain will help in developing mobile applications, we first need to know the advantages that it can bring to mobile app development.

Blockchain In Mobile Application Market

App approval
At present, there are two major app providing platforms available for the users and developers, Google play store and Apple’s App Store, and these two platforms have the authority to make their own choice regarding the approval of apps on their platform. Though the approval process is unpredictable, undisclosed, and complicated, and in several other scenarios these providers act completely unfair to newer developers. With the implementation of blockchain, apps would be verified and approved using a genuine developer eminence system and also by considering the ratings given by users. This keeps both app developers and users on side of profits.

No Middlemen
One of the most popular features of blockchain is its decentralized nature. When transactions processed they are recorded, and no single institution or organization owns the record. All related parties have access to the data and see accurately when and how a payment or transfer was processed.
This data is not stored at a single location, it is distributed across several computers, or nodes, across different locations which makes it less vulnerable to manipulations or hacking. The allocated, decentralized nature reduces the need for an intermediary middleman to transfer apps between developers and users.

Blockchain will solve in-app purchase issues
Even though smartphones are widely used in this generation, there are still so many users who lack the means to conduct an in-app purchases as they don’t have access to payment methods like e.g. credit cards. Even if a user has a credit card with him, this whole payment process is subject to the huge possibilities of fraud because to make a transaction users has to go through the app store charges, gateway charges, card-processing charges, and bank transfer charges. Because of so many steps involved in a payment, a developer will only get a share of 70% from the amount paid for the app. With the help of blockchain, apps reward coins will be used to make payment to the app store, and a whopping 85% share would then go to the developer.

Transparency
If transparency is absent in transactions, it becomes complicated for any app developer to implement a duty correctly and thus fulfill the idea. As we know blockchain is an open-source network and people consider it as genuine means to get access for everyone who is present in the network. They can swiftly and effectively find the record of all its transactions, private and financial information, and data in real-time.

Data Security
The primary advantage of the path breaking blockchain technology is that it keeps the applications in a secured and safe manner. Blockchain uses the most advanced cryptography. And the concept of this
technology is to design app in a way that it has the potential to offer the highest level of safety with the strengthened encryption.

By seeing the above mentioned points, we can come to a conclusion that the execution of the blockchain technology in mobile application development will have tremendous advantages. To give you detailed knowledge of “Blockchain In Mobile Application Market”.

Sexting Trend Is Rising Among U.S. Adults

Posted By: Arin Dey - February 05, 2014
Sexting is an act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs, mainly between smart gadgets or mobile phones. McAfee has revealed 49 percent of U.S. adults use their smartphones to send suggestive photos and videos or some pornographic e-mails and texts.

Sexting Trend Is Rising Among U.S. Adults

50 percent of those admitted to storing the sexts and images they receive. Most of them or around 77 percent of sexters send the sexy content to their spouses or partners. 16 percent send it to complete strangers whom they never met with.

McAfee online security expert Robert Siciliano said in a blog post that “I’ve said this before … the rise of Smartphone usage has provided us with tons of convenience, but also brought about different risks we need to consider. Sharing intimate or racy information via mobile devices can set you up for potentially adverse situations.”

Sexting is very much observed with the 18- to 24-year-old group where 70 percent have received sexually suggestive content from someone. 13 percent of men more likely to use their handsets to send and receive such explicit content. 61 percent of men get engaged in such behavior compared to 48 percent of women.

Below is the detailed study on "how we expose ourselves to risk" done by McAfee: 
how we expose ourselves to risk

Robert Siciliano in a blog post suggested some really useful things you’ll want to remember as we head into Valentine’s Day before sending that loving message.
  • Don’t share passwords with anyone, including romantic interests or family members. For those needing to share a password, create a unique code for the necessary account, and change it immediately if foul play is suspected.
  • Always use a PIN or passcode on a mobile device to prevent lost or stolen phones from revealing private information to unknown people who can misuse it.
  • "If you do send personal or intimate messages, take the time to delete the content from your mobile device and personal accounts as soon as possible. It doesn’t take that much time and it could save you years of damage control for your reputation."
  • Always think before you hit send, post, tweet, etc. that once you share private information it’s now out of your control and you can't do anything to protect your privacy.
Most of the US adults share nude photos and sexts on unsecured Smartphones. Siciliano referred this as “just asking for a social scandal".

Moto G Will Be Available Online In India

Posted By: Arin Dey - January 21, 2014
It may be a planned strategy of Google to enter into Indian market again but yes now Motorola comes with two new model phones, the Moto X and the Moto G. Moto X is available US exclusively but Moto G has been launched outside US and as per the latest reports and this cheaper smartphone from Motorola will be available in Indian market this week.


Till August 2012, some smartphones were seen in India now again Motorola's Moto G is comign to India. This cheaper smartphone than of the Moto X  was launched in Brazil, US, and some Latin American countries in November last year. Motorola had planned their launch in India and it would come sometime in Jan 2014. As expected Motorola is coming now. It was launched with a price of $179 for the 8GB of storage and $199 for the 16GB model in the US. It is already launched in Australia, Malaysia and Dubai.

Now lets look at the technical specifications. Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch, 720p display (329 ppi), 1GB of RAM and a quad-core, 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. Initially it was available with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and recently updated to Android 4.4 KitKat. Battery is 2,070mAh with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p video recording and a 1.3-megapixel front camera.


Motorola's most expected Moto G smartphone will be launched online initially that means we can’t expect to experience hands on soon in mobile retail shops. 

Though there are no such hands down factors it has except if it comes with DUAL SIM in Indian market then it would gain more popularity as a lot of other brands in India are releasing with DUAL SIM.  Due to less marketing strategy taken in advance, Moto G is most probably not available to offline retailers. Flipkart is partnered with Motorola for selling online at its launch. Obviously Motorola will sell the Moto G in India with a lesser price compared to the rate in other countries. Lets watch the space for Moto G launch whether it can keep the word for their tagline "Exceptional Phone, Exceptional Price".

Comparison - Android Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 and S3 Mini

Posted By: Poketors - August 03, 2013
This infographic was composed by AndroidPIT, the price of the Galaxy S4 Mini has been revealed to be around $300 with it currently selling on Amazon for $288.95. So what do we think of the S4 Mini? The battery life is certainly improved over the S3 Mini but still does not reach the full battery life of the S4. That said however, the smaller size of the S4 Mini does have something on the S4 in terms of weight and size. Does it have enough to justify the lack of battery life? We’re talking a difference of 2,600 mAh in the S4 versus 1,900 mAh in the S4 Mini.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Posted By: Poketors - March 17, 2013
The biggest smart phone battle is now on the air. The recently crowned HTC One must prove itself against the mighty Samsung Galaxy S4. Will the HTC stay at the top or will its fall from its top position? Let's find out.
Overall View : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

In the one corner, you have the HTC One's rather wonderful aluminium body, which feels reassuringly strong, smooth and svelte thanks to relatively slim proportions. Somehow it looks a little industrial and retro from the front, which we love. You will be proud to show this device to friends.

In the Samsung corner, you get a the polycarbonate plastic the Galaxy S3 was encased in. Regardless of the technical name, it feels cheaper in the hand but it does at least mean the weight of the device is kept relatively low, which is probably a good idea when the display is as large as it is. In the S4's defence, it does do a splendid job of housing a gigantic display so you won't need to stitch on a clown pocket.

We've said it before and we'll harp on about it again: premium phones should feel premium in the hand, and the Galaxy S4 falls short in this area. A win for the HTC One here.

Hardware & Performance : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

If looks are largely irrelevant, the Samsung is going to impress you. You don't get a dual-core processor, or even a quad one ─ try an eight-core Samsung Exynos 1.6GHz monster comprised two quad core processors, 2GB of RAM and a powerVR SGX 544 graphics chip that will make Angry Birds and other mobile games run incredibly smoothly. Suffice to say, Samsung has once again set the pace for just how much power you can get into a phone, although the jury's out on whether all that power is noticeable or even needed.

Unfortunately for the HTC One, it was never going to win with four less cores but it's still a powerhouse in its own right. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core clocked at 1.7GHz and with an Adreno 320 GPU behind it, as well as 2GB of RAM, makes the One almost unrivalled when it comes to performance.

Ultimately, if anything can dethrone the HTC One for sheer grunt you will never use, it's the Samsung Galaxy S4 although the difference is unlikely to be great. The fact is, both phones are quicker than just about any other Android phone the world has ever seen, which is impressive. A win on paper for the Sammy here.

Another close call, both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One boast full HD screens. Yes that's 1,920x1080 pixels, just like the full HD goggle box in your living room. In this case, it depends on what you want. For pixel density and therefore clarity, the HTC One boasts a score of 468ppi whereas the Samsung can 'only' manage 441ppi. Both scores far surpass the iPhone 5's Retina Display.

In terms of technology, the Galaxy S4 uses Green AMOLED technology to lower power consumption, which is a good thing when the size of the display is a whopping 5in. We're talking nearly Samsung Galaxy Note territory. The HTC One is a slightly more manageable 4.7in and uses SLCD technology.

Technically this fight is a draw because, while the HTC One is more detailed and more pocketable, you may crave the impact of a bigger screen. Either way, the detail will be superb, the brightness more than adequate and the colours vivid. It just depends on whether you like the HTC One's more subtle colours and more palatable display or the bolder colours and bigger screen of the S4.

Battery Life : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Battery life is always a tough call because no two people will have the same user habits. Regardless of how big a battery is, spend loads of time on YouTube streaming HD videos and you will soon know about it.
Let's look at the numbers, though. For the HTC One, you get a 2,300mAh battery that can't be removed. For the Samsung, it's 2,600mAh and can be removed. Expect about a day of solid use before plugging either device into the mains while you sleep.

Camera : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Megapixels mean little if a camera doesn't know how to use them. Fortunately for you, the HTC One's UltraPixel system provides pretty good low-light performance, accurate colours and the capability to capture fast-moving objects and scenes. It can also record impressive 1080p video footage. As phone cameras go, the HTC One is very well blessed and we doubt anyone would be disappointed with the results.

Samsung has opted to keep things simple with a bog-standard MP count of 13. Not the most out there but definitely competitive with the Nokia PureViews and UltraPixel variants of the world. Detail is impressive, colours are spot on and, as with most recent flagship phones, the low-light capability is vastly improved versus the Galaxy S3. In terms of features, the S4 can record both cameras at once using Dual Shot, merge photos taken from the two cameras at the same time and can even record up to nine seconds of sound while capturing a photo.

Knowing the stakes are high, the winner here is an especially tough choice. We're going to call the HTC One the victor here based on the quality of the shots from both devices we've seen so far and mainly because we can't see Dual Shot being used all that much.

Some Extended Features : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

In terms of extended features, the HTC One comes with an impressive 32GB of storage, HTC's greatly improved Sense 5 user-interface and a home screen that is basically Flipboard. It looks a little like it came from Windows Phone, thanks to sizable tiles packed with images and information, and therefore all the better for it. Simplicity is sometimes what Android needs and the One really tries to plonk the essentials in an easy to find location. Even so, you can still customise to your heart's content if you so desire.

Samsung has decided to build on the S3's out-of-the-box functionality. Smart Stay – now known as Smart Pause – eyeball tracking is back, along with proximity feature Air View. Basically, it's the equivalent of hovering your mouse pointer over something. By keeping your finger near but not touching the screen, you can manipulate certain functionality such as hovering over Google images so you see a larger version without actually clicking it. The same can be applied to swiping, too. Rounding off is the S Health app, which lets you keep tabs on your exercise routine and health using the S4's array of new sensors – including temperature and moisture tracking.

We questioned the need for those extras on the Galaxy S3 and we are still unsure whether the S4 benefits from having them, although Air View could prove useful in a number of situations. Therefore the victory goes to the Galaxy S4 – unless you crave a focus on simplicity, in which case, the HTC One is for you.

Suggestion To Buy : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

If we counted up the wins, the score resides at a nail-biting 3-3 draw. In some ways that's a good thing because it highlights the brilliance of the Galaxy S4 and how much HTC has learned to allow it to release what quickly became our current smartphone of choice.

The S4 can't hold a candle to the stylish and Flipboard-enthused HTC One. It's fresh, well designed and it could take a knock or two before warranting an expensive repair bill. But it's a little less powerful, if that matters to you, and the screen is detailed but a tad smaller. If you prefer your Android experience a little more garish and vanilla, the S4 is for you ─ if you can put up with another bout of plastic.

Both phones are worthy of your money, but, assuming our review goes the way we think it will, the HTC One will hold onto its crown until the iPhone 5S.
