Amadeus Consulting Discusses: What Ever Happened to Windows Phone 7?

buy app reviews

Earlier this year, Microsoft® announced Windows® Phone 7 (initially called Windows Phone 7 Series), which will become its next offering in the mobile operating system market. In conjunction with the announcement, Amadeus Consulting also announced that we are offering preliminary development of custom applications for Windows Phone 7 so that companies can have applications ready for the launch of the first Windows Phone 7 phones, set to debut later this year.

Since that initial announcement we have seen a lot of interest in custom development for Windows Phone 7 apps, and have had many companies interested in building on the hype that will accompany the initial launch of the first Windows Phone devices.

To help companies interested in a mobile application for future Windows Phone 7 devices, but who are unsure where to start, we have compiled some of the major features of Windows Phone 7, and why they matter. Specifically, this article covers:

  • What makes Windows Phone 7 unique as an operating system
  • Why Windows Phone 7 appeals to business users
  • Silverlight, XNA and other interactive technologies in Windows Phone 7
  • What to expect from the hardware (the actual phones)
  • Some insights into the Windows Phone 7 App market
  • Finding a developer to make the app for you

Also, for those interested in having an application ready on launch day of some of the most anticipated phones yet, there is still time to order a fully custom Windows Phone 7 app for your corporation, business, startup or entrepreneurial venture. Contact us today and let’s get things started before time runs out.

Moving Past Windows Mobile

Windows Phone 7 picks up where Windows Mobile 6.5 left off, but it makes a huge leap forward making the platform very competitive with Apple’s® iOS 4 (Formerly iPhone® OS), and Google’s™ Android™ OS, in terms of features and capability.

In fact, even describing Windows Phone 7 as a “huge leap forward” from Windows Mobile is an understatement. Microsoft has taken a ground-up approach to redesigning its mobile operating system and has improved every aspect of the operating system in a remarkably positive way. They clearly have put a lot of thought, effort and testing into designing a product that is easy and intuitive to use, without skimping on power and capability.

The user interface on Windows Phone 7 is also distinct from Apple’s iOS 4 and Google Android™, which gets rid of the traditional icon view and replaces it with larger blocks and “hubs” that many users say they prefer because of its simplicity and ease of navigation.

Before we jump into some of the specific details, some quick benefits of Windows Phone 7 include:

  • Complete Microsoft Office® Integration, including Outlook®, Excel®, Word®, Powerpoint®, Calendar, and more
  • Massive Industry Support, including hardware commitments from Dell, Garmin-Asus, HTC, HP, LG, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and Toshiba, and commitments from carriers such as AT&T, Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange, SFR, Sprint, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telstra, T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone
  • Support for Silverlight® and XNA® for high quality game development, as well as quick portability of applications across platforms.
  • Support for 3rd party advertisers and ad integration into applications, including ads in Silverlight®
  • Emphasis on business productivity, gaming, and community building. A perfect environment for app developers

Unprecedented Business Integration

Windows Phone 7 focuses on is business users. According to Microsoft, 90% of the target customers for Windows Phone use their Smartphone for business purposes, and 61% use their phones equally or slightly more for business than personal use.

As a result, Windows Phone 7 combines familiar tools such as PowerPoint®, OneNote®, Word®, Excel® and SharePoint® into a single integrated experience via the Office® hub. It also integrates rich email, calendar, and contacts, as well as allows businesses to utilize existing IT investments like Exchange and Exchange ActiveSync® to support Windows Phone access to enterprise assets such as corporate email.

In addition to deep integration of Microsoft Office, Windows Phone 7 provides advanced security options, including support for secure data transmission through 128 or 256 bit SSL encryption.

Gaming and Interactivity

Although it appears that the phones will be marketed primarily towards business customers, game developers for Windows Phone 7 will also have a huge advantage with the platforms support of XNA, which is the development system used for gaming on the Zune HD® and Xbox 360®.

Another big feature of the Windows Phone 7 is its full compatibility with Silverlight. Silverlight provides interactive capabilities similar to Adobe® Flash®, and can be run across a multitude of devices and platforms. Microsoft boasts that Silverlight developers will have an incredibly easy time porting their existing applications to the new platform, although there will be some tweaking necessary to comply with the look and feel of the phone UI.

Microsoft has also expressed its intention to provide Silverlight support on the Xbox 360 and Zune HD, which means that developers will eventually be able to bring the same app to the Web, PC, Personal Music Player (PMP), Console and phone with relatively little pain.

Hardware Capabilities

Microsoft has also been flexing its muscle to create minimum standards for the new Windows Phone 7 Phones, which are being manufactured independently. These standards are intended to ensure that applications are as compatible as possible across platforms, rather than requiring different versions of applications for each platform, or limiting features on applications in order to increase compatibility on different devices. These minimum standards include:

  • At first, only large 800 x 480 (WVGA) touchscreens will be permitted, which means that applications should have little trouble with being visually compatible across different phones – a problem with Android phones which often have different sized displays which creates UI problems.
  • Five specific hardware buttons are required: Start, back, search (which integrates with Bing services where appropriate), camera button, and power. Some devices might have more, but these are the baseline.
  • Capacitive multitouch with support for a minimum of four contact points, though no more than two are used by any of the platform’s six native gestures (developers are welcome to use as many as they like).
  • A Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with DirectX 9 graphics support. Microsoft says the platform is flexible enough to expand to other chips in the future, but right now it’s all Qualcomm.
  • 256MB of RAM or more
  • 8GB of internal Flash storage or more
  • WiFi
  • AGPS
  • Accelerometer
  • FM radio!
  • 5 megapixel camera or better with a flash

Microsoft has not yet announced a specific release date for Windows Phone 7 phones, however it is rumored that LG may have phones ready as early as September, with other developers ready by October or November of this year. In addition to LG, many other developers have been confirmed to be working on Windows phones, including Dell, Garmin-Asus, HTC, HP, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and Toshiba. Motorola, which has developed many other mobile and portable devices for Windows Mobile, and Windows Embedded systems, has not yet confirmed that it is developing Windows Phone 7 devices, even though many rumors and reports indicate otherwise.

App Development

As both a positive and negative, development for Windows Phone 7 is substantially different than development was for Windows Mobile.

Windows Phone 7 uses technologies, such as XNA and Silverlight, which are less familiar to most do-it-yourself app developers. This means that there will likely be a smaller number of applications for Windows Phone 7, than for Android™ and iPhone®, but the applications that are available will tend to be much higher quality, since they will be done primarily by experienced developers.

App development also benefits from unique cross-platform integration. This means that with very little additional investment, a mobile application could be transformed into a web app, a program on a PC, an app on the Zune HD (essentially the equivalent of the iPod Touch), and eventually an app on the Xbox 360.

This means that with almost the same investment, an app can potentially return 5x the value as an app on other platforms, which are much more device-limited. Of course, this will be substantially affected by the actual adoption rate of Windows Phone 7 phones, but it nevertheless benefits from the massive player base of Xbox users, being compatible with PCs and the fact that it is usable as a rich Internet application.

As a note on the overall mobile market, Windows Mobile still maintains 19% of the smart phone user base, as of Q1 2010, according to The Nielsen Company. This compares to Android’s 9% share, and Apple iPhone’s 28% share. Although at the time, RIM Blackberry still held the largest share with 35% of the total smart phone market. It will be interesting to see how these numbers change by next year, once the iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7 operating systems are all in full competition together, added in with new editions of Blackberry and whatever HP and Palm end up throwing into the pile as well.

In either case, this is a unique time for marketers and developers to build and launch applications in conjunction with the initial unveiling of one of the biggest operating systems in the mobile smart phone market.

Also of note is that every major US carrier has made commitments to carry Windows Phone 7 phones. This is a major boon to app developers, since the potential user base for the apps will not be limited by the “population” of an individual carrier. This is different from the iPhone, for example, which is limited to only AT&T’s subscribers.

Platform Requirements for Windows Mobile Development

buy app reviews

As companies embark on mobile application development in order to satisfy business needs (whether it be Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile development, or whatever), a number of requirements to a mobile platform emerge. Most critical of them are as follows:

1. Desktop application integration. This includes accurate data synchronization with encryption and possibility to manage data offline. If you need timely access to important data stored on your desktop, including e-mails, event alerts, and customer data, than proper integration is a must.

2. Multi-tasking. Due to a limited character of mobile device resources, multi-tasking is one of the key ways to increase productivity. (Though it’s okay with Windows Mobile development, this may be an issue for iPhone or Android developers.)

3. Minimization of traffic amount between a server and a mobile device, which contributes to time and cost savings.

4. User-friendly interface that allows accomplishing necessary tasks by fewer operations.

5. The last, but not the least of requirements is lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and support costs. Implementation of a mobile platform across the enterprise must be estimated beforehand and such factors, as support and upgrade costs, are of importance, as well.

Each platform provider offers its own mobile solutions to satisfy these requirements. Microsoft, for instance, is getting prepared for Windows Mobile 7 launch, which potentially would also improve Windows Mobile development experience. Google, on the other hand, armed with the forthcoming Google Nexus One, is trying to compete by incorporating Android with existing Google Apps, such as Google Docs, Gmail, Google Calendar, and other. Apple puts emphasis on business features, providing integration with MS Exchange, as well as data encryption, GPS, etc.

However, according to Evans Data survey, Windows Mobile development is still dominant in comparison with RIM OS, Mac OS, and Android development. 50 percent of mobile developers are targeting either Windows Mobile 6.0 or Windows Mobile 5.0 platforms. The reasons why the number of businesses operating on Windows Mobile is overwhelming, include the following:

• Apart from Outlook integration, Windows Mobile offers such Microsoft Office Mobile applications, as Excel Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile, and Word Mobile. These applications have gained so much popularity that they are universally implemented across various industries.

• The TCO of the Windows Mobile platform is 15-24% lower than that of the RIM Blackberry platform over a three-year period. And there’s nothing to be surprised at, since the native support of Exchange ActiveSync removes the need to invest in additional software, integration, and other Windows Mobile development efforts.

• Windows Mobile, being a .NET-based platform, gives users a possibility to gain all advantages of Microsoft Office and other Microsoft-based applications.

Though being sometimes criticized for its clumsy user interface, Windows Mobile, compared to other mobile platforms, is, to the maximum extent, a business-oriented technology, which is, naturally, determined by the marketing strategy of Microsoft, concerning Windows Mobile development. The good thing about it all is competition that drives all of these platform providers to new enhancements and innovations, which, in their turn, help better satisfy the mentioned requirements to business application development.

Mobile app development Pune: Ways to find one!

buy app reviews

It is not at all simple to choose a company that has experience in creating mobile application for your business. You might have read and heard about a number of companies. What you need to do is separate the ones that offer you really good services and price with those that offer you so called good pricing and services. In the past, there were only some companies that offered such services at affordable prices. At present, there are a number of companies that can confuse you while you are looking out for one. Thus, there are a few important essentials that you need to consider before you hire the mobile app development pune firm and below mentioned are those:

#1

Choose companies that are familiar with building mobile application

There are uncountable companies that can help you with mobile app development firm that will offer you the services. One thing that you need to keep in mind is that do not hire the company that is not related to your nature of business. This means that you would not want to hire a online gaming developer for your e-commerce website. Consider choosing a app development company that possesses in expertise in your field.

#2

Do not keep price as a priority

You might have seen a number of advertisements on the web especially on the social media. These ads are made in such a way that attracts the customers. The main point of attraction is the cheap price for the service. This is one thing where many businesses make a mistake. They hire the services according to the price charged. This is something that should be done. Keeping price at the top on your priority list is a wrong thing. Make certain that you determine the quality of services that the mobile app development Pune offers you and then consider the price whether it is worth the quality of services offered or not.

Business understanding

One of the most important things that you need to look at is that the firm that you choose understands your business. When this criterion is met, you can get the minor details that you are looking out for. The mobile app development Pune company needs to understand every information that you provide them with thoroughly. Make certain that they have all the doubts cleared in case any.

5 Signs Self-Cannibalism Taking a Toll on iOS App Development

buy app reviews

If consumers have strong reasons to choose iOS, then businesses and marketers definitely have stronger reasons to target them. Perhaps, the latter cohort is fairly acquainted with the opportunities tapped in the affluent iOS consumer market. However, there are strong signals that iOS users are not so happy with the kind of experience they get from the apps installed. And this self-cannibalism not just erodes the trust of app owners but also those who are behind it, i.e. iOS app development companies. Root Info Solutions finds a deep echoing of the user dissatisfaction and urges iOS app developers, sometimes also  referred to as Swift app developers owing to the language used, to swing into the damage control mode.

54% of iOS Users Uninstall an App Due to Overwhelming Push Notifications

Excess of anything is bad! How come push notifications be an exception to it. What is considered as a key to drive user engagement can become a weapon to destroy the same. This is alarming for app owners. They should keep in mind that over promotion can backfire and compel users to uninstall the app. There is also a key takeaway for Swift app development professionals. A greater sense of responsibility lies with them in terms of integrating their app with the Apple Push Notification service to ensuring that user-experience is not getting compromised.

2. 64% iOS Users Don’t Return to an App Over 11 Times

This is again a lost ground and opportunity and likely to get captured none but the competitors in the market offering better mobile experience. That your app has got qualified by App Store or iTunes is a matter of pride, but it’s not enough to let you get conversions. Apart from innovating your products or services, you need to innovate the user experience of the app. Make the user’s journey easier and their experience rewarding. Urge your Swift app development company to keep your app relevant with time leveraging the capabilities of the iOS SDK, operating system and the device both.

3. Apps Resorting to Hype are More Prone to Uninstallation

This time, we shouldn’t blame the iOS app development company. Here the fault is with the marketing agency, if you have hired one. If not, obviously, you have to take the onus. You might be using multiple-channel of customer acquisition including organic, Google AdWords, social media ads and more. It’s cool, you are going right. But what is expected is to go ethically and portray the right capabilities of your app. Getting users is important but there is even more important to retain them in the long run.

4. Exit Gate is the Only Way if your App is too Inquisitive

Unless you offer some exclusive information or service that users can’t get anywhere else, it’s recommended not to go with too much of formalities regarding registration or signup. An app that asks for too many permissions or unnecessary information is likely to see the exit gate. Even if, you do so, keep the process as brief as possible because users today are  low in patience.

Social signup can provide a way to bypass the lengthy signup or registration process, but at times users are reluctant in getting the app connected with their social accounts. So based on the audience type and the product you market, adopt a balance allowing users to access app or information in a quick and easy manner.

5. Mundane Apps Have Few Takers

Users expect a great app. So just getting approved by App Store will not seal your fate. You have to make sure that your app has muscle to outdo competition and charm to make the head turn. The UX should be a show stopper elevating the level of infatuation in the users.

However, this is not an end to the list. Equip your app with the right mobile analytics tool to read what users want and take the right step. Some popular and proven analytics tools include Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Kissmetrics and Amplitude. Apart from improving UX, it also help you expedite your cross-sell and up-sell endeavors.

IPhone App Developers – Making Money in New Mobile Economy

buy app reviews

Do you have the skills to write a killer iPhone app? If you do, and you create one that becomes popular, you could watch your bank account grow at an astounding rate. And even if you don’t know anything about programming, if you’re willing to hire someone to do the iPhone application development for you, you could still make a tidy profit. A few iPhone application developers have hit the big time, thanks to thousands of downloads of their programs, most at only $.99 each.

If you’re a programmer already and you have some basic knowledge, there’s a slight learning curve when it comes to programming for Apple’s iPhone. But you can download information and the SDK (software development kit) that will help you learn how to do it. That’s what some have done to avoid paying $150 and up per hour for qualified Apple iPhone developers.

Some programmers are writing iPhone apps in their spare time, hoping for a little side income stream, then quitting their regular jobs to pursue iPhone application development full time once they realize how quickly the profits an add up.

But just writing an iPhone apple doesn’t guarantee success, as many have found, too. So hundreds or thousands spent on design, development and testing if you pay someone to write the code for you could be for nothing. There’s no way of knowing until Apple approves the app and the program is officially entered into the App Store.

Competition is pretty fierce among iPhone application developers. The iPhone App store has only been open since 2008 and there are already over 25,000 applications for buyers to choose from. Creating one that many will want isn’t necessarily an easy task. And if you have the idea, someone else may have had a similar one and an application that does nearly the same thing is already for sale.

Some people become an iPhone developer and earn hundreds of thousands of dollars-a few have earned over a million, while others are pretty much ignored. But the chance that the next new iPhone app could be a big hit keeps people flocking to iPhone application development classes in the hopes of learning to do it themselves and becoming an Apple iPhone sensation.

Once the application is created and tested, then it’s necessary for Apple to approve it and list it in the Apps Store. After that, automation takes over and the developer’s job is done. Apple handles the sales details and keeps 30% of the money from each sale for their trouble. While that seems like quite a chunk, there’s no better deal going since you can’t sell iPhone applications anywhere else.

One might think sales of iPhone apps would slow down, since sales of everything else have in the current recession. But with such a huge portion of the population owning a phone, we’re now in an almost completely mobile economy. People talk, send pictures, surf the Internet and now run programs and play games all on their mobile phones. Because of that, iPhone developers can still earn huge amounts of money if they hit on the right app, so iPhone application development doesn’t look to slow down anytime soon.

What is Android and What Does it Do?

buy app reviews

By now you have seen the commercials for the new Android phone that state that it is something that “does” things. The things that this new smart phone does were created by Android application developers in conjunction with Google. Introduced as an alternative to the iPhone, the very things that this smart phone does will be what can differentiate it from the competition.

What exactly is an Android phone and what does it do? Is it like the iPhone or better? To better understand what it is and what it can do, you first need a little background information on cell phones and how they work.

All cell phones smart or otherwise, have operating systems. This software that is permanently stored on your phone is what makes the phone function. In the past, these systems would only support apps or programs that were created by the original developers giving them complete control over the functionality of the phone. With Android, this is not the case.
Android features and open source operating system which means that anyone who wants to develop apps for the Android platform can. Android apps developers can create new applications or programs for anyone to use. This shift from the past proprietary systems gives freedom and offers advantages for users.

Some notable benefits are:

Application Variety. With innumerable apps developers using their creativity to develop unique apps, there can be an endless variety of types and functions of apps. Nearly any idea for an app that can be conceived can be made into reality.

Innovative applications. In the past, applications could take months to create. With this platform, Android developers can create their applications in less time while bringing new and fresh ideas to life.

Money saving. Due to the move past proprietary systems to open source systems, the cost of your cell phone will be reflective of the actual hardware as the costs for research and development will not be present. This used to be a major part of the cost of the phones in the past.

Multiple carriers. With Android you have your choice of cell phone carriers rather than just one carrier, like the iPhone. This can possibly be money saving as well as you can compare several companies to find the best plan for you. Additionally, there have been issues with the coverage area for iPhone users that may not be present with those that offer Android.

Multi-task. With the Android phone, the notification bar will alert you to various things such as new voice messages, email messages (in Gmail and others), Facebook notifications and new text messages for example. If the Android app developer created an app that has notification capability, it can alert you quickly and in the background without disrupting anything else you may be doing with your phone. With the iPhone, which depends on a single system where not all applications may have access, you do not have this ability.
