SMS turns 25
So guys this year our SMS (Short Message Service) celebrated its 25th birthday. The first text message ever was sent on December 3, 1992, by Neil Papworth, a 22-year old software engineer working for Vodafone. The message was a short, but sweet – “Merry Christmas”. A simple start for an innovation that would go on to change mobile technology forever.
Initially, SMS struggled to find widespread adoption, both because of the poor cellular networks back then in addition to the fact that phones we designed dialing rather than typing. Fast forward 25 years and text messaging has become commonplace for people around the world with over 22 billion text messages sent daily.

In this year our beloved mobile brand “Nokia” will be back with the android in the market and if you , Remember Nokia 3310 from back in the day? A phone with black and white screen that battery life would last almost a week or even two without needing to be charged. Well, in 2017 , Nokia, released an incredible homage to the iconic handset which many of us used to send our first SMS. The phone was a master class and ranked among the most popular and best -selling phones at the turn of the century.
The new 3310 looks similar to the original albeit with a more modern look and now comes with a camera, a colour screen and even better battery life. And although the iteration is more of a nostalgic release and can’t do anything as well as a smartphone can, it highlights the need for simplicity. Instead of being more advanced, the phone aims to simplify things.
Search within Apps feature in our Android devices
Google serach is too accurate and give you a exact result of thing you want to search. Google is now being used interchangeably for searching online. This has been possible because of the many new and innovative concepts that Google has presented to its users. One new concept that is expected to come out in 2017 is this search engine’s “In App” section. This section will be presented with the regular search bar. This will allow its users to search from within the multiple apps installed on that device. The search will not happen on the cloud, and hence you can use the feature even when you are offline. When you search for a keyword, relevant information will be extracted from multiple apps on your phone. If you have an app, it is worthwhile to consider performing keyword research and using those keywords within your app.
The world around us is changing fast, and our businesses need to catch up with these technological changes in order to thrive.
Artificial Intelligence give feels to Virtual Reality
To give the proper feel of using apps the developers uses AI to feels their work. The impact AI can have on everything from education, gaming, and commerce is staggering. A learning app could adapt to the way a child best learns. Games could be more complex and challenging. For commerce, AI could be a virtual worker whose only job is to cater to individual needs of every single customer. A personal AI assistant could help a shopper by making a list of what they need, and add the goods “to the cart,” leaving the user just to click “Buy”.
for a example we does not know about Pokemon? The game was launched in the year 2016, and it stirred the entire gaming marketplace. What was so special about Pokemon was that it was powered by advanced augmented reality. Following the success of Pokemon, many new games and apps have been launched in the Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality space. These apps & games happen to be more entertaining and immersive than their counterparts. Look out for unprecedented growth in this sector in 2017.
Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
The concept of “Internet of Things” has continuously risen since it got into the limelight. IOT combines various physical objects with electronic technology, like your smartphone. As an example, when someone rings your bell; you can see a live video stream from your doorstep on your smartphone. This way, you can decide whether it is safe for you to open the door or not. Fitness bands are also a good example of this concept. The physical band captures your physical activity and transmits that to an app on your smartphone. The trend is only expected to grow further in 2017.
