While many web and marketing agencies are seeing the great value in adding apps to their portfolio of offerings, don’t let the idea of having to be an established agency scare you away, because it’s not at all a prerequisite. Freelancers, both amateur and experienced, are taking advantage of this large demand that needs to be satisfied, by targeting small businesses whose profits and marketing strategies can be greatly enhanced, just with the the addition of an app.

With where social apps are headed, we were not at all surprised to witness some enthusiasm surrounding the release of our Chat Add-On. While it is going to evolve over time, we felt it was important to address early on the security issues that are bound to arise from adding a social dimension to your mobile app. What's more, with school apps and an increasingly young audience turning to smartphones and social apps in particular, a reminder of best practices seemed all the more essential. Now, over to Cassie Phillips, from SecureThoughts:

Today we have some good news for our Catalan friends: the back office and apps are now available in Catalan!
We were already offering the option to set your back office and app in Spanish. However, many GoodBarbers have been asking for the possibility to create apps in Catalan as well. With that in mind, we are happy to announce the release of this new language option, allowing you to make the most of our interface and your beautiful apps.
In order to set the back office to Catalan, you simply have to go to Settings menu> My Account> Profile> Language (management).
In order to set the app in Catalan, you have to go to the menu Settings> App Options> Settings app> Application Language.
Fins ara GoodBarbers ;)

In the mobile industry in particular, they are a target group: technology is an inherent part of their daily lives, day in and day out. But regardless, their attention is difficult to catch.
Reason n°1: they are overwhelmed by solicitation.
Reason n°2: they are demanding users, easily rushing from one thing to the next when they aren’t satisfied.

Over the years, we get to see more and more friendly faces in the crowd and some of them have now become customers. It's always a good experience to meet with them in person. Having a chat with our customers is the most rewarding feeling and their feedback is valuable to keep on pushing ourselves to enhance GoodBarber.
Mobile World Congress was also the perfect occasion to make contacts with other people in our industry and exchange ideas. This year, we organized a MeetUp to get together with our resellers, journalists, bloggers and anyone curious to have a chat in a more relaxed atmosphere about our product. We shared our big highlights for 2015 and gave a preview of what's in the pipe for 2016. It was amazing to discover the powerful use that some of the attendees are making of our product. It was very inspiring.
Sure MWC can be tiring at times, we probably drank too many cups of coffee for our own good, saw very little of Beautiful Barcelona, but, at the end of the day, we got the most energy from the people we met along the way!

Not that we don’t believe in Beautiful Apps anymore ;) But, we do agree that push notifications are among the most effective tools you can use to engage your audience. However, as we have often stated, we also believe they can be your own worst enemy. Remember our blog post about 4 reasons apps get deleted? An invasive use of push notifications is often to blame.

So, if you want to become a master of Instagram, here’s a few Instagram DOS and DON’TS to get your business on the right track. Read on!
