I cannot believe how many websites I m finding for businesses that do not work properly on mobile devices!Major news organizations, attorneys and even Apple s own website that introduces people to their new 7 Plus iPhone requires a magnifying glass to read the text even on one of the biggest phones in the world with one of the largest display screens.There is also a side scroll bug on the Apple website that prevents the entire top navigation menu from being displayed properly in vertical mode requiring users to flip to horizontal to even see the selections.In other words, your website needs to be responsive.No matter whether a visitor to your website is browsing on a laptop, iPad or a phone it simply needs to work.Scott Web Media specialists can redesign your website so that it is responsive to all devices.
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.

Join us for this live webinar on Web Personalization Thursday, October 22 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.A few years ago, if the theme of “personalization” had emerged in your marketing circles, most industry people would have referred to Amazon as the gold standard.Amazon still is the Prime, free-shipping standard when it comes to knowing what products I want and when I want them.By way of personalization, Amazon transformed online shopping into a web experience (and we know how many times “customer experience” comes up in marketing meetings).Companies of all sizes are following Amazon’s lead and many have been seeing huge results.In fact, according to VB Insight analyst Andrew Jones, in his latest report on website personalization, 87 percent of those companies have seen a lift of at least 5 percent in their most important metrics.
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."

I ask her where she is and as she explains, I reach as far as I can across the countertop for a pen.I take my laptop, Google the address, add better directions to my notes and head outside to my 1989 pick-up truck whose most recent technological feature is a cassette player and drive over.I didn t just cancel cellular service and keep the smartphone for Wi-Fi fun, nor did I downgrade to a flip phone to simplify ; I opted out entirely.It makes a woman feel rich.When friends found out, I was told it was as insane a decision as leaving a rent-controlled apartment.But I was tired of my world existing through a black screen and even more tired of being contacted whenever anyone or any bot felt like it.

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.
Samsung is gearing up to launch a new smartphone that uses parts from its ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled last year after a series of battery fires.Called the "Note Fan Edition", the company says the new mobile will utilise parts from the 2.5 million recalled Note 7 handsets to minimise the environmental impact of the faulty units.While the handset will share much of its design with the old phone, the South Korean tech giant says it gets a new battery that has been "enhanced with multiple safety designs and a rigorous eight-point battery safety test".This is expected "to calm the fans that the Fan Edition is aimed at", says Alphr, referring to the fault in the design of the original Note 7's battery that resulted in multiple device fires and the recall of every unit sold.The Fan Edition is expected to recover some of the £2.5bn lost as a result of the fiasco, adds the website.It is also believed to be a response to environmentalists who called for Samsung to handle its defective Note 7s using methods that would "reduce the amount of so-called e-waste", reports the BBC.

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.
1 in 7 mobile users back Ofcom proposals to make new networks handle the switchover – not the one being left behindOne in seven UK mobile customers back proposals by Ofcom to make it easier to switch networks by requiring the new provider to handle the switch – not the one being left behind.Research from uSwitch claims the average person spends 25 minutes trying to leave their existing network, with two fifths having to contact their operator twice or more and 11 percent having to make contact four or more times.More than one million customers switched from one operator to another in the past year but spent 143 million minutes in phone calls and live chats, or 2.4 million hours.Network switchingmobile workforceJust 23 percent described the current process as easy , with a fifth claiming they felt pressured into staying or bombarded by questions.Currently, mobile users must obtain a PAC code from their old service provider if they wish to use their existing phone number on their new network.Ofcom has launched a consultation that includes an option to change the mobile switching process to one where it s all handled by the new provider, but at the moment the old system still stands – and it s clearly costing people both time and money.
