Operation Magnets Storm!

Written by on Tuesday, June 12th 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.

Broadcast Your Dailymotion Channel On Mobile Devices

Written by on Thursday, March 29th 2012

As promised, GoodBarber is enhanced with new content sources. In terms of video, your Dailymotion channels and playlists can now be connected to your application.

It functions the same as YouTube in the GoodBarber back office. Enter the name of your Dailymotion channel on the Sources page. GoodBarber will recognize it and ask you either to import all videos, or import one or more of your playlists.

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 GoodBarber Apps And The New iPad

Written by on Thursday, March 22nd 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 on Wednesday, March 7th 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.

Written by on Wednesday, February 29th 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.


Android Devices

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.

MWC 2012 – Day Two, Focus On Monetization

Written by on Tuesday, February 28th 2012

On the second day at MWC I had a little more time to converse with some exhibitors. It’s not possible to meet them all, or to describe them all (the exhibition catalog is 300 pages long!), so my visits were focused on application monetization services. I briefly describe three of the most interesting below.

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.

Written by on Thursday, February 23rd 2012

An article published on www.igeneration.fr on February 14th, echos a study published by Cisco on the same day: Cisco expects an explosive growth of mobile Internet traffic via moblie devices. In 2016, 10 billion mobile devices are expected to be connected to the net for 7.3 billion people.

In a study on trends in mobile data traffic, Cisco identified 10 main trends. Cisco anticipates a monthly traffic volume of 10.8 exabytes in 2016. There have been 0.6 billion exabytes in 2011, and should be 1.3 billion in 2012. Traffic will be multiplied by 18 between 2011 and 2016; and by 2 between 2011 and 2012. The growth rate of traffic data was higher than expected in 2011. At the end of 2012, the number of mobile devices connected to the Internet exceeded the number of people in the world. In 2016, the ratio between the number of connected mobile devices and world population will be 1.4. Of the 10 trends described by Cisco, three of them particularly characterize the mobile market in our view.
