Apple releases iOS 6.1


Apple iOS 6.1

The latest iPhone, iPod touch and iPad software update is ready and its called iOS 6.1, released on Monday 28 January. Mostly concerned with tweaking existing functionality and fixing bugs than adding anything too dramatic to what you got with iOS 6. However, it does add a few bits and bobs, so let’s take a closer look.



iOS 6.1 - LTE support increased

The most significant change in iOS 6.1 is that LTE support has been increased adding LTE capabilities to 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers around the world, so even more iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad with Retina display users can experience ultrafast wireless performance to browse, download and stream content at blazing fast speeds. To date, iOS users have uploaded over nine billion photos to Photo Stream, sent over 450 billion iMessages and received over four trillion notifications. 
LTE is the type of 4G connectivity you’ll find in the iPad mini, iPad 4 and iPhone 5.
Apple says that an additional 36 networks will now be able to offer 4G for iPhones, and an additional 23 networks for iPads.

iOS 6.1 - Improved Siri

The iOS voice assistant is now able to plug into movie service Fandango to let you buy film tickets within Siri itself. 

iOS 6.1 – iTunes Match

According to Apple, those subscribing to iTunes Match can now download individual songs from iCloud, rather than just full albums. This will give you finer control over how much of your phone’s internal memory is taken up with your Match’d up tunes.

iOS 6.1 – Advertising Identifier

Apple has introduced a new security option within iOS 6.1’s security menu. You can now manually reset your iOS device’s Advertising Identifier. 

This is the identifier that third parties can use to track your device to an extent, tailoring ads for you. Being able to reset it manually is rather like flushing the cookies in your computer’s browser.
 
The revolutionary App Store offers more than 800,000 apps to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users, with more than 300,000 native iPad apps. App Store customers have downloaded over 40 billion apps, and Apple has paid over seven billion dollars to its incredible developer community. Customers can choose from apps in 23 categories, including newspapers and magazines offered in Newsstand, games, business, news, sports, health & fitness and travel.


When are you upgrading to iOS 6.1?



Workshop on PhoneGap and HTML5 at Aitrich


What does the proliferation of different mobile and tablet platforms and devices mean for developers entering the industry ? Are they offering opportunities or more problems ?

Whatever it is for developers, the companies find it more challenging to be reached to all their customers regardless of the mobile platforms they choose. They are always in the lookout for a way of developing single app and run it anywhere as if they are native to the host platform. Many technologies are springing up following this idea and PhoneGap is a real promise.
PhoneGap is an HTML5 app platform that allows you to author native applications with web technologies and get access to APIs and app stores. PhoneGap leverages web technologies developers already know best... HTML and JavaScript. Without having to deep dive into the complexities of native platforms, which makes mastering the mobile development tougher, PhoneGap allows the developers to leverage their web skills into mobile app development easily.

PhoneGap currently supports the following platforms..

PhoneGap developers are increasingly in demand and getting paid handsomely, competing to iPhone and Android developers. The trends say that companies will eventually prefer PhoneGap developers over native mobile developers as the platform is getting matured in every release, and now it is under the safe umbrella of Adobe Systems Inc.
Being a relatively new technology, there is not enough training providers for PhoneGap. Aitrich Technologies, the pioneers of cross-platform mobile development company located at the South Indian state of Kerala, recently conducted an introductory workshop on PhoneGap and related technologies including HTML 5, as part of promoting awareness on Cross-platform Mobile App Development. Their training division provides inhouse as well as corporate training for major web and mobile technologies including PhoneGap. AppsGala, representing their Mobile Development Division showcasing their works and skillset in the area.

Students from number of colleges across Kerala and Tamil Nadu gathered at Aitrich Technologies office at Thrissur with the hope and eagerness to learn about the latest of the latest technology in Mobile Application Development. And the workshop did not disappoint them.

The Aitrich Mobile Web team shared their wealth of experience in this specialized technology area to the audience, guided them through a tour on Mobile Development, different mobile and tablet platforms, HTML 5, the new super star in the Mobile Web, and finally the art of building cross-platform applications using PhoneGap, in a very simple and easy-to-understand manner.

The program got kicked off at 10:30 with the introduction by Anish Narayanan Kutty followed up by Ullas Mohan providing the audience an idea about Mobile development and the years leading to the current trend in application development.






The next session was about HTML5 and how it is redefining the way we design our websites and applications. The session handled by Shafi was a crowd favourite as it gave an insight into the designing aspects with number of games shown as examples. They were also given a lot of information about the designing aspects and how HTML5 is ready to conquer the world with its light weight tools and easy to use tags.






The final session was handled by the Mobile Web team leader Shafi, who gave the audience an idea about PhoneGap and how it works. The fact that PhoneGap allows you to “Build Once and Deploy Many times” was a clincher. The students were really motivated to learn more about PhoneGap and through the interactive sessions it was evident that the students were serious with PhoneGap as a career. Mobile Web is definitely a thing for the future. With the ever growing density of smartphones across the globe the next hottest job market is definitely mobile application development and mobile website development.

HTML5 blossoms @aitrich




About HTML5:-
 It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard, created in 1990 and standardized as HTML4 as of 1997 and as of September 2011 is still under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (Web browsers, parsers , etc.). HTML 5 is device independent with respect to a mobile and a personal computer. 
HTML 5 is a great combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript which is a dream combination for any software and mobile developer. It is extremely user friendly, a result of being customer friendly. 
We at aitrich Technologies understand the scope and opportunities available with the use and knowledge of HTML5. The updations which are being done on a daily basis and which is to be completed by 2022 provides a challenge of huge proportions. aitrich as an organizations fueled by the young guns are taking up this challenge and so far we have come out with flying colors as the poster may suggest. Our soon to be published aitrich mobile application had an heavy influence of HTML5, an application which has being appreciated by one and all. Our junior team comprising of Shafi PS, Jinas and Manaf who where ably led by Ullas and Shafi had a great learning experience on the project
Shafi PS quotes " As students we were initially overwhelmed by the challenge, our seniors maintained a great positive team atmosphere, enabling us to learn from our challenges and completing our project in time. HTML5 provides a challenging experience completed by an urge to learn, a fun and creative tool allowing us great future opportunities
Manaf adds " HTML5 is a challenge which we overcame through learning the basics and other relevant aspects of HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, jQuery mobile and applying the stuff we learned into practice. Overall a great learning experience"

Mobile War - "Apple Vs Android"

Its an all out war out here. On one side we have a rage and on the other we have a competitor who is as strong if not stronger. Its high time we analyze the strength of android which is powered by the ever growing and highly innovative brand of Samsung ( leader among the pack ). The article quotes that Samsung could use Android in every sector in which it is involved. Go through the article and analyze it for yourself.
Should Apple be worried about Samsung?

Steve Jobs- A Tribute



Steve Jobs- A visionary, forefather of the digital age, countless innovations….

Some of the phrases related to the great man who left us for heavenly abode on 5th October 2011. Somehow I feel Steve Paul Jobs is a synonym for innovation. He was some one who went beyond the normal and provided people with luxuries no one would have dreamt off. As he said to a magazine, “A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.” That is one of the principles he worked with. He was an innovator par excellence. He bought to the common man products which changed his outlook towards technology. No one would forget the trademark blue jeans and black t-shirt clad product presentations which were a treat to watch. His way of presentation and sense of humour would give an edge to any product.
 Apple under his leadership has been at the centre of innovation for decades now. He redefined how we use the mobile phone with the introduction of iphone in 2007. It was not just a phone, it was a phone, a music player and above all a internet communicator. Multi touch was a thing of the future, Apple bought it to us. ipad wasn’t a thing which was a necessity but large crowds forming long queues three days prior to the launch of ipad showed that it was nothing short of a rage with the world and it only added to the legacy of this great man leading a great company. Every product coming from the Apple office is keenly awaited and taken up with both hands.
The success story started from the family garage and led to the large Silicon Valley office. It would be a fairy tale for many but it was more of a hard working, never give up attitude to a yearning to be the best and providing the customer something that they never imagined would be possible. As Steve Jobs himself said “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” He followed the path of innovation and we all know how he redefined the word leadership.
From a marketers point of view Steven Paul Jobs created markets and product categories. He altered the way we consumed products and entertainment. He absolutely changed the perception that technology is complex and for the young. He defied market research, never believed in the normal conventional products, he wanted to be the best, give the best possible product to the customer. These are qualities rarely found in a leader.  


The Steve Jobs way of working was to take risks, venture into the unknown. Can you think of another person who would have had the vision to take his company into uncharted waters like a mobile phone with no keypad, which no market research had showed any demand for, and then change the world with that? Or who'd have the courage to bet upon and live with one, just one, model to take on the world's phone vendors... and then to edge them out, with the world's most brilliant, and most profitable smart phone? All these things speak volumes of the man’s spirit to be the best and a way to tell the world that he will not settle for anything less than the best. It is also clearly seen with the way he left Apple for almost 12 years before returning with greater vigor and energy. In between he was the leader of Pixar Animation Company involved in producing animation movies like Toy Story (a franchise now) and also a recipient of numerous awards for a number of films.
His list of achievements can go on and on. His words of wisdom could make up a book (a sure bestseller), his innovative ideas have changed the world if not generations, he was the face of the most recognizable brand of the world. No words can describe this legendary figure who made the ugly world of technology look good.
Surely the great man has left a great void in the world of innovation. You have been a legend, a true role model. Hats off to you Sir. May your soul Rest In Peace.

InfoQ: SlideShare migrates from Flash to HTML5

Posted by Alex Blewitt on Sep 27, 2011



Today, Slideshare, the popular on-line presentation hosting site, completed its transition to using HTML5 instead of Flash for its eponymous slide sharing utlity.
Previously, browsers had to have Adobe Flash installed in order to view presentations on their site. However, with the advance of HTML5, and an increasing amount of traffic from (mobile) browsers without Flash support, the transition to HTML5 meant that SlideShare could be ahead of the competitors in terms of the delivery of components for other browsers.

Not only that, but the slides load 30% faster ...
