The battle between the App Store and Google Play has entered a new phase in the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, the online store of the Apple managed to generate 2 times more money than shop those from Google, China the main growth engine in this situation.
Although Google Play generates 2 times more downloads for apps than the App Store, the store Google fails to reach the App Store site in terms of revenues, on the contrary, they fell from the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the difference It is only 75% between stores in terms of revenues.
China overtook the US in terms of app downloads, games as favorites Chinese, and since 75% of total revenues for iOS come from games, it is clear that all the attention Apple must focus on China at the moment thanks to the money which country she generates.
Equally, Japan begin approaching increasingly more US where game downloads from the App Store, and soon Japanese will download more games than Americans so that the country will become more important than the US because it will generate more money for Apple, which is the focus of the business.
Although Google Play surpassed a while App Store in terms of downloads store from Google did not generate ever grossed higher than the Apple store and chances are quite small for this to happen, given the unavailability users Android or spend money on applications.
Finally, the creators of this study argue that the time spent in applications has doubled over the same period of 2014, dependent on the growing smartphone motivating users to use their terminals and applications more often, and so lose many hours a day using this type of software.
What if a smartphone would be able to stand drops, strong strikes or even throws with the screen intact? I guess all of us would be happy. Well iPhone 6 seem to fulfill these expectations as it comes up with a screen made of sapphire glass. Apple has very powerful lasers to cut the sapphire wafer which they have grown, harvest and polished. Special lasers are required because sapphire is very hard and use of a conventional cutter would wear it quickly. Pretty good news for iPhone users that want to save some money but not care about their device as for an egg.
This technology has been used on iPhone 5 in the lens that cover the camera and also in the thin outside layer of the fingerprint sensor on iPhone 5S.
More sapphire glass?
We have been talking about iPhone till now. But we do not want to say that it’s the only area Apple will use its new technology. Maybe MacBooks, iPads, computers and tablets are some categories of products that will soon have an extra resistant screen made of sapphire glass.
We know nothing about the items we could wear but Apple has confirmed involvement of sapphire glass in the manufacturing process of Apple Watch. We hope to find out more about Apple’s intentions about sapphire glass because they are putting a new factory for sapphire in February right in Arizona.
You are undecided what to choose between Android and Windows? Guess what? Now you can have both.
The traditional strategy of Pc can be violated by Microsoft who plan to conquer the smartphones market.
The man from inside Amir Efrati reveals that the companies start talking with smartphones manufacturers about using both Android and Windows Phone 8 on devices. In the future consumers would choose to activate Microsoft Os for mobile or Google’s Android.
In the past Windows had the same type of cohabitation with Linux in the PC’s ecosystems, so the move it’s not something new for Microsoft. They hope that people will prefer Windows for smartphones like, in the past, they rather choose MS OS instead Linux OS.
Rumors of “dual-OS” phone were registered since last year when HTC phones was supposed to run WP8 and Android.
OEMs are timorous when it comes to invest in platforms just for Microsoft, they prefer to stay stick with the Android “monopoly” which is a well know platform. But now being able to build one phone for both platforms Microsoft Os look like a good choice, massive benefits may resulting from dual-Os strategy in the future.
This advantage can increase Windows Phone’s market from 3.2 percent of the U.S. market where it is right now, and give consumers more Microsoft Os products where from to choose.
Official the Microsoft representatives refuse to comment.
