There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.
In research published in the journal Evidence Based Mental Health, a team at the University of Liverpool found that many mental health apps and online programmes lack "an underlying evidence base, a lack of scientific credibility and limited clinical effectiveness".Simon Leigh, co-author of the study, argues that apps should be "well-informed, scientifically credible, peer reviewed and evidence based"."The rate at which apps come out is always going to outweigh the rate at which they can be evaluated.Mental health apps have grown in popularity at a time when psychological services have faced an increased demand and decreased resources.Many people find it hard to access services because of geography, because of mental ill health, because of physical disability.We've also found that, in the 50% of cases that do get to a GP, they're not able to guide mental health problems adequately."

It can dance, walk, play football and do kung-fu – but only when commanded via its companion app.UBTech Alpha 1 Pro – Design and FeaturesThe Alpha 1 Pro comes fully assembled and with minimal accessories in the box – just a mains charger and a Mini USB cable.Or perhaps the scheming love-child of Honda Asimo.Alpha s probably about as big as you re expecting – certainly as I was expecting.There s an awful lot of white plastic here, broken up only by the black plastic and silver metal of those 16 servos at all the joints.
If you want to get to grips with the real risks of online privacy you need to understand just what happens to your data in the architecture of the internetYou press the shutter icon on your phone and capture a photo of your baby daughter.With a couple of swipes, you attach it to an email in your Gmail app and fire it off to your mother-in-law.As personal data goes, it doesn’t get much more innocuous.But the truth is that spraying around any private information is risky.You might think that’s overblown.
Users have long complained about performance issues and it sucking up battery and last year Facebook s chief product officer, Chris Cox, took the unusual step of making his staff ditch their iPhones and move to Android until they sorted out the issues.But the problems have remained, and recently they led the Android blogger Russell Holly to dump the app, starting a chain reaction which revealed something rather interesting about the app s performance.Prompted by Holly s revelation that life on Android was better without Facebook s app, Reddit user pbrandes eth tested the app s impact on the performance of an LG G4.They found that when the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps were uninstalled, other apps on the smartphone launched 15% faster.They found similar results when testing for app loading performance.Over the course of a day my Huawei Nexus 6P had 20% more battery.

p Update 09/05/2017: People backing-up WhatsApp conversations through iCloud will now benefit from the messages being encrypted by default.WhatsApp has confirmed the backed-up files are encrypted and it is believed the feature was introduced in late 2016 but wasn't spotted until now.WhatsApp has turned on end-to-end encryption across all of its apps, the company has announced.The Facebook-owned app, which has more than one billion monthly active users, has turned on the Signal Protocol, developed by Open Whisper Systems, by default.The open-source private messaging system, which has been supported by Edward Snowden, will protect group chats, attachments, voice notes, and voice calls made across WhatsApp on Android, iPhone, Windows devices and some Nokia and BlackBerry models.The encryption method lets users see content that has been sent but does not allow service providers, such as WhatsApp itself, to access the content of the messages.
You heard me correctly, I said “meh.”I’m not talking about the “meh” used to ironically describe something beautiful/awe-inspiring; like when your friend uploads a beautiful sunset to their Instagram story and captions it “meh” (yeah, yeah, we know you are such a jetsetter).Hailing from the mobile app analytics industry, I’ve seen many founders pour tons of hours and thousands of bucks into apps that just don’t perform or deliver a good experience.Plus, when the idea comes from your own experience, it can make it even more challenging to detach yourself from the concept and look at the app from an objective viewpoint.If you have an idea, go out and validate it, but validate it the right way.The problem of ego oftentimes leads to what is known as confirmation bias.
Now, watch faces will display notifications and information from any Android Wear app, much like Apple Watch s own watchface complications.That certainly helps if you want a watch that s basically an at-a-glance notifications ticker on your arm.That s why it s developing three new ways for messaging on Android Wear: smart replies, handwriting, and a swipe keyboard.A 1.5-inch display is still far from any kind of display I d want to try to communicate on for than five seconds, but at least Google is experimenting.On the fitness front, Android Wear 2.0 takes the personal coach approach.Google-powered smartwatches will soon come armed with automatic activity recognition—a feature long present on Fitbit wearables—and will funnel health information with the Google Fit API.
Installing apps is a time consuming pain in the arse sometimes.Google just announced it s brilliant solution to this problem: Instant Apps.What s more exciting is that Instant Apps will be compatible all the way back to devices running Android Jellybean.The most common way to activate an Instant App download seems to be clicking on a link, but Google also suggests it could be done in other ways.In one example, an NFC tap actives the download of a payments app at a parking meter.Although Google s announcing the initiative today, it s not ready for prime time just yet.
Google, not being particularly amenable to letting other robots into your life has unveiled its own version, Home.Just by speaking, you can order an Uber, play Spotify, set alarms or just ask questions.Duo, meanwhile, is quite simply Google's answer to FaceTime or Skype, allowing internet video calls.Both are coming for iOS and Android in the summer.Google's next software operating system update for smartphones and tablets, codenamed Android N, has been released as a developer previewThe new system will be named after a tasty treat, and could be called Nerds, Nutella or NougatNew features include split-app multitasking, the ability to reply to messages from within a notification and increased battery efficiencyGoogle has been dipping its toes in low-end VR with Google Cardboard for a couple of years, but is stepping up by bringing it to Android N.A new feature called Daydream will allow certain phones to up their performance to deliver VR, and Google is releasing a Play Store, Street View and YouTube for VR.Google is also thinking beyond the limitations of Cardboard, and has produced a blueprint for a headset which it will share with third-parties, alongside a natty little controller reminiscent of the Siri-powered pointer Apple unveiled alongside the latest Apple TV last year.
If I'm already at my computer, I'll do a quick Google search to see if I can find some info on the caller before they go to voicemail.WhoApp is a new app that specializes in finding out who is calling you.The call will be sent to WhoApp, who will dial back the number and show you information on who the caller is.If the caller is some form of telemarketer, they'll show a large warning shield, letting you know that you probably don't want to answer it.And since they appear to call the person back, that does make me think that there will be some issues, depending on the caller.There's no word on whether or not the company plans to bring it to Android devices.

As of July 2 this year, up to six family members can share purchased games and apps with each other. Google calls the function Family Library, and it applies to all purchases after July 2. Developers can choose to split the family also apply to existing purchase, something that Google recommends. If someone else in the family buys an app, you will then be able to use it, and vice versa. We assume that the division will additionally be utilized, for example, a group of friends, then Google can not get to verify that these are just a family.
