Operation Magnets Storm!

blog_write_no_author  Tuesday 12 June 2012

About a month ago, we sent more than 500 GoodBarber magnets with thank you postcards signed by the entire team to 12 different countries, on 4 continents, in the Atlantic (Caribbean) and Pacific (Polynesia). The target: our user community.

Here’s a summary of the operation stages with no less than a month and a half for preparation: card design and production, sign each card by every team member (it’s not an easy task), purchase stamps for 3 different destinations (France, Europe, rest of the world), manual preparation of envelopes, and shipping.

Written by Ghjancarlu Simeoni  on  Thursday 29 March 2012

If you select the playlists, you can connect as many as you like by pairing each playlist with a navigation tab located on your tab bar.

Your application can keep your videos on a single tab with your other content sources and even become a real “video app.”

Your GoodBarber Apps And The New iPad

Written by Ghjancarlu Simeoni  on  Thursday 22 March 2012

Conscious to closely follow market developments and benefit you to the greatest degree, an iOS update is coming soon so that your apps are up-to-date with the new iPad.

We’ve been on the starting blocks since March 7th, and even before. If you follow us on Twitter, you’ve probably seen photos of the new model that we received last Friday. We were eager to test GoodBarber apps on the new iPad, but not without some anxiety. Display problems can always be a possibility, especially in the case of a version with a doubled screen resolution.

Pleasant surprise, GoodBarber apps remain stable on the new iPad, but we will make quick adjustments to our system so that you are able to take full advantage of the Retina Display. We will allow GoodBarber users to load images that are twice as big.

And you will all benefit from a free update for your iOS app, so that you can bring your apps to new iPad’s level.

We will talk to you about it again soon.

Android Market Integrated With Google Play

Written by Ghjancarlu Simeoni  on  Wednesday 7 March 2012

Google has announced the launch of Google Play, a platform that unifies apps, books, music and movies. A few hours before the announcement of Apple’s iPad 3 Keynote, Google launches its iTunes killer.

Google Play is an “integrated destination” for mobile applications, books, music and movies, accessible from all Android devices or the Internet. The Android Market, familiar to Android device users, disappears, giving way to Play Store - one of the four components of the Google Play platform. Google Music becomes Play Music, Google Books becomes Play Books, and Google Movies becomes Play Movies.

MWC 2012 – Day Three, Focus On Devices

Written by Dumè Siacci  on  Wednesday 29 February 2012

As promised, this morning I spent some time touring the booths in search of innovations. I also had the opportunity to play with the new devices and test the quality of the products. Note: it’s impossible to test all the devices at the show, so I made a selection.

The vast majority of phones and tablets presented at the Mobile World Congress are Android devices. As usual with this system, there are high and low quality devices.

On the second day at MWC I had a little more time to converse with some exhibitors.

I briefly describe three of the most interesting below.

Barcelona is the Mobile World Capital (until 2017), so it's the city that hosts the annual Mobile World Congress, a huge event for mobile professionals.

When we take a look, nearly all sectors are represented: from the antenna manufacturer or foundries, from the application developer, to the operators or device manufacturers.
