From Fitness To Social Network, Pokemongo Covers All

With around  15 million downloads, PokemonGo is supposedly quite a successful mobile game that we have come across. Perhaps it’s not just a game and has extended a level ahead that accounts for the success of this app. We have been talking about different genres of mobile apps. However, hybridization in mobile apps is something rare. Well, to take mobile apps to the next level we can now see intermixing of functionalities in order to create a comprehensive platform that takes care of not just one of needs.

With so many people entering in the mobile app development world we need a watershed that can help us to that can break the stereotypical app development ideas so as to maintain the zest among the users. This is the reason why  iOS or Android App development services need an extension strategy that can maintain the zest among the audience alive.

Therefore, it is the time to extend all the all the functionalities making mobile apps quite a handy tool for development.

This is the reason why we have attractions such as Augmented reality, gamification and social media integration that are emerging out to be new savior of the technology.

Adopting augmented reality

Pokémon Go has officially been credited as the first official AR; although we have few apps that are gaining credence such as McGonigal’s I Love Bees that aims to market Microsoft’s XBox game Halo. Along with this, we have several “Gamified” apps that have been quite successful such as Foursquare that has been getting criticism among lot of communities for offering inappropriate meaningful rewards and other stuff.

We can say that the Pokemon Go, which is a  AR game, is sheerly inspired by the Pokemon video games which is all about exploring and collecting which also deliver an optimistic social message which is mixed with storylines.

How would you improve it?

One of the main attraction of this game is that allows you to go for socially interact with people surrounding you thus opening you up for new connections. Moreover, this has become one of the biggest attraction among the developers. There are some social interactions that happen around the game which is quite good as it brings real world goodness to our stores.

How can we link augmented reality to our app ideas?

Now that we all have heard a lot about augmented reality and looking at its apparent advantages there are a lot of people who might be thinking about entering into the development. Social stimulation has become one of the most sought after requirement, and this is the reason why real world is taken and entered into the games.

Along with this, we have non-player characters that are projected around us in the real world and helps you to create an environment where you do cannot make our the difference between the real and imaginary characters, and this will help you to create a mystery.

What makes PokemonGo an inspiration for modern mobile apps?

PokemonGo, however, covers various genres and encourages people to walk which we hardly do. Apart from this, it is a geolocation-based app that gives you a reason to go out and also interact with people. This further encourages team ship and allows you to develop the form new connections.

Mobile Apps: The New Buzz In The Entertainment Industry

Consequently, foresighted business owners are now enthused with excitement looking at these current stats and now look forward to   make their business mobile.  The love for mobility has grown so much so that people now prefer to go for developing a  mobile app rather than a website for their business.

Moreover, if we talk about the entertainment industry we can see that they prefer more of mobile apps rather than creating websites as according to statistics we can easily see that mobile apps have become one of the most used gadgets in the current world. People are now spending their quality time in mobile app development and this is the reason why mobile app development.

When it comes to the digital space, we can see that we have moved to a new shift in the internet stricken world which is moving towards mobility. Well, the sole idea is to stay connected wherein the mode of connectivity has been considerably changed from web to mobility. This major reason behind is the portability these devices that offer them full-time connectivity to the users.

Within a couple of years, we can see that the entertainment market has experienced a  drastic change and has adopted mobile entertainment that can understand the behavior of the users quite easily. As per Juniper Research, we know that global mobile entertainment is about to reach $65.9 billion this year.

Here we will discuss why mobile apps are a greener pasture for entertainment brands.

Irrespective of the business that you have which is video, news, gaming or gambling, this is all about responsiveness as well as delivery of the websites and everything is dependent on how well your mobile app has been developed and whether they perform well or not. These people are world leaders and innovative thinkers who come up with innovative ideas and to build these apps they hire iPhone app developers who not only have the expertise but the experience in developing intuitive and feature rich mobile apps that suffices the need of modern web music lovers.

We already know that these stalwarts in the entertainment brands were built on to cater in both movie theaters as well as television screens and eventually now we have seen the advent of mobile apps. However now with mobile — they have expanded their seams, and now they can now reach the audiences via ‘touch’.

Moreover, an advent of new technology enables the users to render a great user experience and get more considerable growth in the industry. This certainly helps you to get a rise when it comes to mobile content consumption using mobile TV and video-rich service.

We can certainly not overlook the opportunities provided by mobile app development such IoT and wearable apps for devices that can be shown in the M&E industry. Wherein along with this, technologies such as  Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, 3D, Peer to Peer services are making mobile app development quite an intriguing task thus making entertainment services quite rich as well as user engaging. Therefore, it is advised to you to utilize the opportunity before everything becomes very monotonous.

Plausible Threats And Solutions Related To Mobile App Security

Within a decade we have seen a drastic transformation in the way use to work such as our checkbooks, memo pads, mini storage devices, id proofs,  accounts,  cameras,  and several other things that deal with our critical and confidential data.

We cannot ignore the fact that critical data requires quite strict security, and this alarms all the users that whether this substitute that they are about to choose for their tried and tested storage method is as competent or not. Security is such a major issue in mobile app development and no matter you hire a professional Android app developer or iOS you cannot afford to ignore the security.

Why is Mobile App Security an area of concern?

Well, the best answer will be to answer all these questions such as that whether you use utility apps such as phone barcode scanners? Are you carrying out a business or running an enterprise app. No matter whether you are running a firm or are an individual business owner who has to store their employee data, trade secrets, business quotations, and other sensitive information which is crucial for your business.

Even start-ups or SMBs that have a retail app that store bank account and credit card credentials of their users. Those who are “freemium monetization model” based app owners, who might be trade money for features

All in all Mobile app security is one of the most crucial aspects of any mobile application development. It’s not just the app owners that fret about the security of their mobile app, but even the mobile app users also need to pay heed to the security of the developers.

Caution for the users

There are many people who are unaware of the fact that how their mobile apps can access their personal data on your mobile device. Well, you are the one’s who allow them to do so by allowing them to access the data which includes all the media files, e-mail id, and  your native gallery features, and this is in the box that appears with the warning before installing the app.

There are several users that click on ‘allow’  in order to install the app for free.  The barter is that we allow all the third parties that are attached to the application get a control on our data as functions of our devices.

Among the total hacking happening around us, there came a stats that showed that about 53 percent of fraudulent in mobile commerce are related to money. Thus happens through their stored credit card details. The rest of them include 47% of the identity thefts, data phishing, and banking frauds.

Hacking of Facebook accounts, Identity theft, morphed photographs, financial thefts, these are some of the repercussions that one needs to bear if one loses the devices, or any confidential information is leaked.

There are certain mistakes that these development firms do while developing these apps and in this blog, we will discuss how to tackle all the mistakes that can help us to botch with the security of the app.

Not securing interactions and transactions that are at high risk:

Those Mobile apps that are specifically built in order to communicate with back-end services.

We have Enterprise apps such as CRM apps that are used by specific companies; they store the back-end data and for this, they use third party integration.

Likewise, we use a third party integration is involved when an app fetches any information which is stored in the cloud server.

Integrations are similar to joints that we have in a chain. Therefore all the integration that are with the backend needs security.

For this, you need to encrypt the data which is present in the encryption algorithms, for instance, the SSL (Socket Security Layer) and is a widely used algorithm for encrypting online data. The TLS (Transport Layer Security) can also be used to further improve the security.

Contingency Plan for Data Management after an attack:

We know that in CRM applications, geolocation apps, social media APIs, the stored data is personal and when leaked might have serious consequences.

Therefore, applications that contain personal data need to adhere to the protocols.

When do we befall this data theft?

Situations when your data gets compromised are:
1. When someone steals your device.
2. You get attacked by a Hacker.

How to tackle?

In the former case which is when you get to lose your device, then you can make use of selective remote wipe of which is the new functionality which is offered by most of the devices nowadays.

Using this you can easily remove sensitive data stored on your devices without even using it. Moreover, there are several phones that also offer a security login that makes sure that the users can easily do the same.

For those who have lost their device can also use a selective wipe for their mobile apps. There are applications such as Google +, Gmail, (google based apps that are integrated with your Google account) that allows the users to erase the sensitive information to delete confidential data from their Android /iOS device allow and even block specific access.

All in all!

Security is one of the strongest pillars on which the complete growth of your mobile application development stands and this cannot be compromised at any cost.
To build a strong app make sure that you adhere to OWASP standards which are the crux of mobile app development and helps to build secure apps.
