Sitting, glued to a computer screen has now become old-school. The modern Smartphone was launched to the market 7 years ago and today many users feel as if they cannot go a day without a smartphone. Mobile media is taking off. According to a new study released by comScore , 7 out of every 8 minutes we spend on the internet are spent on various mobile apps on our phones. Forget the digital revolution, mobile technology is fast becoming the number one way to reach a diverse, global and large audience.
Facebook is facing what seems like a mid-life crisis. Instead of sticking to the share and like button, Facebook continually tries to imitate popular young, new mobile apps like Instagram, Snapchat and now WhatsApp. Unfortunately the “cool mom” persona leaves most kids with bright red faces, and hiding in embarrassment. Facebook Camera and Facebook poke, both attempts to imitate Instagram and Snapchat, have fast become extinct on app stores. Now, Facebook is telling us to either “get cool or get out” by forcing us to download the new Facebook Messenger.
I have a mild obsession with mobile games. I have 5 to 10 that I play on a daily basis and I am constantly looking for more that I can sink my teeth into.
The problem with mobile games today is that almost every game requires me to pay in order to play it the way I want to. In fact, there an entire community of online gamers that feel the same way. No matter what it says in the description of a mobile game, it is not free. A game may be free to download and play but it allows - and insists - in-app purchases.
Warning: this post is no joke. Poop is not a laughing matter
With Apple’s App store having over one million apps, it is no surprise that there are a few, ahem, eccentric apps that, most of the time are not very useful and would probably raise the eyebrows of anyone browsing your phone.
