Predictive Analytics Tools Empower Decision-Making [Whitepaper]

As the owner of a small e-commerce shop, you’re always searching for the latest and greatest products. Recently, one product line was featured on a popular show and sales skyrocketed overnight. Your website is one of three that carries this product, so you’re inundated with new customers. But being new to this business, you’re unsure when you should order more stock (and how much to order). It would also be helpful if you had greater insight into whether you should hire new staff and seek additional warehouse space.

Is Your Mobile Phone Usage Interrupting Your Life?

Twenty years ago, AOL’s instant messenger made its debut, placing instant communication within reach without summoning the help of a phone. At this time, kids were enjoying Game Boys and Nintendo 64 gaming systems, in addition to bikes and Razor scooters.

Desktop API vs Mobile API

Your Desktop API Just Killed Your Mobile App

You’ve built a killer mobile app similar to Google Maps and a content sharing platform. But something’s wrong: your app is painfully slow when communicating with third-party applications and your ability to retain and attract users is suffering as a result. According to your mobile analytics, nearly 30 percent of users exit the app when they reach this digital “bridge.” To save time, your company used an existing application program interface (API) designed for the desktop instead of building a new one specifically for mobile. Therein lies the problem. The existing API is neither optimized for mobile devices nor is it on par with a mobile user’s performance expectations. Your app–your dream–is in big trouble without a mobile API. Read More

Apple iOS 11 Beta: First Impression

Over the last year at SevenTablets, I’ve learned a lot more about what it takes to make our pocket supercomputers work than I did in my undergraduate app development class. Every mobile app in existence has its own, dedicated team of developers, determined to keep up with iOS, Android and hardware changes at a moment’s notice. Due to how quickly technology evolves, those changes can be massive. And, in the freshly announced iOS 11, they are. Read More

Mobile App Security Features: Measures to Reduce Vulnerability to Hackers

Many clients focus on a mobile app’s functions, features and aesthetics, but few emphasize the critical issue of mobile app security. Just one vulnerability exploitation can undo all the hard work and money you’ve invested to grow your user base. And once user trust is destroyed, it’s extremely difficult—if not impossible—to fully restore. Being proactive with your security will result in the life or death of your app. Read More
