It's the Golden Age in this Mobile Data world

The past was dominated by voice. Now we have moved into another decade, where digital services take the lion share of industry revenues.   The mobile analyst Chetan Sharma  had predicted that voice data would leave space to mobile data, the new big revenue source.  Only during the past year, mobile data service revenues grew by 20% reaching $24.8 billion, and it has become the primary growth driver for US mobile industry.

News apps keep user's interest more than others

Recently, I fell upon a very interesting article written on Flurry's blog  about the decay of apps. Every app has a lifetime cycle where it reaches the top, and then monthly active users (MAU) start diminishing. Flurry focused on what happens after the peak ... and did you know what they discovered? News apps are decaying slower than other types of apps! Sounds good for you GoodBarbers, right?

How to create CNAME record to install your HTML5 webapp on your own domain

That was one of the great features that came with GoodBarber Salvador back in September. Every GoodBarber account has a great web app associated, in addition to the native app for iPhone and the native app for Android.   Your natives apps are distributed in the App Store and in Google Play. But what about the web app?    By default, your web app is located on http://<appname>.goodbarber.com/m/. But you can (you should?) change this URL and choose your own.   For instance, you can decide to link your web app to http://m.yourdomain.com That will be far more convenient for your users to access your html5 web app, right ?   That's what we're going to do together in this post.

From Tokyo to Ajaccio...

Hello everyone, I’m Deborah, and I’m from Ajaccio. I studied applied foreign languages in Aix-en-Provence, spent one year in Tokyo to improve my Japanese, and completed my studies in Paris in media, information and communication, before I got back to my hometown. I speak French, English, Japanese, and also a bit of Italian and Spanish. During my Master’s Degree I worked on digital contents and their impact on the economy, especially in the music industry. I’m very interested in new technologies of information and communication, so when I heard about the CampusPlex I applied, and here I am! I’m here to help the GoodBarber team with the online assistance to help you create your Beautiful Apps. Do get in touch with me if you have any question! :-) I like music (anything, but I love rock and metal), travels, reading, writing, and many other things that just don’t come to my mind right now.

It smells like pretzels here at GoodBarber? Who came from germany?

Hi everyone, my name is Katrina Bertacci. I come from Bologna where I am still studying to complete my masters degree in corporate management. I am half german and half italian and I speak fluent english, italian and german. When I found out that GoodBarber was looking for a person to open the german market I applied for the job and so now here I am! I will be managing the german market as you may have imagined. In my free time I enjoy reading, painting and taking my dog for walks and playing with him. I also love to cook and experiment, making my own cosmetics for fun. I like traveling a lot and making new experiences, which is also why I applied at GoodBarber. I have almost finished my first week here and it has been very interesting. At the moment I am learning to use all the powerful tools that GoodBarber offers because I need to understand the product before I can propose it to the market. ;) I have also found the workplace to be very positive and inspiring.

A Tuscan boy in Corsica

Hi everyone!   My name is Guido and I just joined the GoodBarber’s team as an Android developer.    I come from Florence where I graduated in Engineering of Electronics. While studying for my two-years specialization course in Engineering Automation I started to develop Android on my own and fell in love with it. So I started to create my apps for my own pleasure. Recently I've started to develop Apple for curiosity and made some apps on my own. When I saw the GoodBarber's contest in Florence I said “why not?”. I tried.... And now I'm here! I’m very happy to be part of the team because I think we should always follow our passions as much as we can.   What am I doing at GoodBarber?   I’m here to help the team develop the Android Beautiful Apps engine.   What else?   I love music. I played in a band (Repleva ) in my home town as a guitarist and I like listening to live music. I enjoy playing soccer and volleyball. I like cooking, as well.

3 days @ Salon de la Radio in Paris

On Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, we were in Paris for the French Radio Show (Salon de la Radio) with Jérôme Pietri . It's a major event in France for the radio world, organized by two of our first customers, Philippe Chapot & Frédéric Brulhatour , from La Lettre Pro de la Radio . If you remember, we already attended this event once, just a year ago. We had a great time with all the people at the event who visited our booth, existing or future customers :)
