Making a difference. One app at a time


After the buzz of the WWDC conference keynote from Apple and the new OSX, iOS and a little bit of hardware it’s time for the company to get in the video/advertising period of those products. It is always a good time to watch an Apple made video. And we have not an exception here. Polished, precise, inspirational and lives you with a strange happy feeling at the end. I wish I had the same feeling with the new icons and colour palette used at their new mobile OS. I don’t want to be misunderstood! I love the clean and simplistic look of the new OS. But the choice of shapes and paint at the icons moves the target group of users to a much younger age… something like less that 22years old! At least it is still in beta stage

    Excellent video.

    However, the key message in the video can be easily adapted for Android devices.

    The Apple video said “Each iOS app offers remarkable — and often delightful — possibilities. But the most powerful iOS apps ever are ones that change people’s lives in ways they never imagined.”

    Google can also say “Each Android app offers remarkable — and often delightful — possibilities. But the most powerful Android apps ever are ones that change people’s lives in ways they never imagined.”

    Similar/Same Android apps are:

    1a. Skyscape (from the video)

    1b. Healthcare (in general)
    https://play.google.com/store/search?q=healthcare&c=apps

    2. Prosthetics (related apps)

    3. Cherokee language related apps

    4. Proloquo2Go similar Andriod Apps

    In any case, the existence of Android apps and iOS apps do give users of either platform a run for their money.

    Great work, Apple & Google!

    You are so true about what you are saying!

    For now the two platforms (iOS and Android) are making great job both at the core of the operating system and at the services they are offering. You can find amazing Apps for Android and for iOS too.

    If you except the “fan boys” situation then it is all about what the user used to operate, what user interface loves the most and the ecosystem surrounding those. Nothing more, nothing less as both platforms are almost equal in capabilities (at least for the common users that it is the 90% or more out there).

    I am an iPhone user (with my really old 3GS that I am thinking is going to die soon) and I am still loving it! But for couple of months I was using a Samsung Galaxy S3 and it it blew my mind with the availabilities of Android
