Mobile App Development

Mobile app development is the process where applications are created for the use of mobile devices such as enterprise digital assistant, mobile phones or personal digital assistants. Applications can be pre-installed onto mobile devices during the production or they can be added a later date by the user.

App development is quickly progressing as the current market is becoming more digitally enhanced. It is estimated to be more than 3 billion people worldwide that are currently using smartphones and 1.5 billion using tablets, all spending around 90% of their time on mobile devices using apps. There are 2.8 million apps available for download today making it a very competitive market for the developers, they are now having to keep up with the fast pace moving market to make their app appealing to its target audience. There is also a significant rise for businesses that are now using mobile phone applications for day to day running of the businesses. Communication and keeping in contact with staff is a must. Notifications with up to date information can be given to all within an instance and group conference calls can be made at one time making the use for face to face meetings less needed. One benefit is that meetings can take place across the world, users can be in different countries yet still receive the same information at the same time.

Apps are also increasing for the use of keeping in touch with family and friends, with the fast pace of life it is not always possible to visit friends and family. New technology and mobile app developments allow friends and family to join each other in group video calls, online games and group messaging services, this has a beneficial effect for those who do not live near each other or cannot physically get to see each other in person.

In today’s market, an app can be found for literally anything you are aiming to achieve. Mobile app development and tweaking can be carried out at home where you can tailor apps to suit you as an individual or business dependant on your needs.


How Aerials & TV Have Evolved

Sky Installation So It Began

the old analogue TV colour bar system

The advent of TV was hailed a miracle, or a menace depending on the view of the the little kid who was watching it at the time. Only literally having two channels available to watch at the time, and with nothing good on them, your options as a kid were limited. Watch TV with folks or go out and get your self into mischief. The latter would be the widely chosen option for any self respecting child. Hang out with your mates or watch and listen to some dreary well spoken how to do reading poetry or the news. Over the air television was truly the first type of television available, using them good old fashioned rabbit ears TV aerials that you kept on having to threaten to get a good signal.


Then It Changed

As we became more adept at using technology, we were able to increase TV channels, manipulating UHF and VHF frequencies to cram more TV programs down them bandwidths. The major issue with this technology was it’s lack of motivation, seeing a tree in it’s own path would cause the signal to get lost before reaching the intended TV aerial. A gust of wind could cause severe problems for viewers trying to catch (remember, no record button on your remote, and you were lucky to have a VCR, so you had to watch at the time of broadcast) Countdown. Eventually, this had to make way for digital transmissions.

Smart TV Aerials & Televisions

With the rise in digital signals, we had to wave good bye to our old friend analogue. We also had to say good bye to the traditional aerial and use a smart TV aerial, this enabled us to receive more and more channels along with packages included with sky installation, with the ability to watch other channels not being broadcast via the usual methods. This would become known as the ‘press the red button now’. This has given people access to content and information that was not available through the old analogue systems, and at a speed and stability that digital has given us. With our continued progress of digital signals, it can only be an exciting prospect at what this technology can offer us next.
