How to read comments

I'm writing this because I just saw this happening and made me think about it...

I saw how difficult is to move from working for the private sector to the world of mobile apps for the World in general.

If you provide technology (hardware or software) to the private sector, then every thing you want to create it will be related to the business they currently do there. So, everyone knows what you are talking about.

But if you jump to the public sector because you have an idea and want to make an Android/iOs/BlackBerry/Mobile app, it can be related to anything. And here is the interesting phenomenon...

Because the people who will use your app is not from a defined sector. They are from a vast variety of sectors. You will have bakers, house wifes, business man, taxi drivers and many etceteras.

And comments will hurt. Because you are expecting the same as before (everybody knows what you are doing) but here is different. Because your idea is (for sure) something new. And every person will try to adapt it to their sector.

So, be careful when you read comments. I'm seeing people changing their original idea and goals just because comments were not that good. And that's bad because you get lost. And if you get lost, then everything is over.

From dot-com to the greatest app

Nothing new, just amazed on how the computing World moved from the I'm-gonna-be-super-duper-rich-by-doing-my-original-dot-com to I'm-gonna-be-super-duper-rich-by-doing-my-original-app.

What's gonna be next?

Nokia App Store

Today at Mobile World Congress, Nokia unveiled a new family of affordable smartphones debuting on the Nokia X platform. Based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), and backed by Nokia’s deep ties with operators, Nokia X platform gives Android developers the chance to tap into, and profit from, a rapidly expanding part of the market.

Nokia X platform is simple and straightforward and the vast majority of Android apps can be published to Nokia Store as is. For those few that require modifications, the Nokia X analyser tool significantly reduces porting time by identifying the required changes.

See if your Android app already works on Nokia X.
Want to learn more about Nokia X and the reasons why you should port your apps to Nokia Store? Here are the Top 5:
1. Nokia X opens new markets to your existing apps.
Nokia’s sales leadership and brand strength in the fastest-growing smartphone and mobile app markets provide the launch pad for your apps’ success. With Nokia X, you can reach an untapped pool of savvy — and app-hungry — new smartphone users around the world.

2. Nokia X’s monetization tools create additional revenue streams for your apps
Monetization tools like Nokia In-App Payment, combined with Nokia’s extensive operator billing network, provide your existing apps with new monetization mechanisms in growth markets. Consumers in many high-growth markets do not have international credit cards, making traditional revenue collection a challenge.

3. Android app compatibility
Nokia has tested over 100,000 Android apps and approximately 75% are directly compatible and ready to be published to Nokia Store. If your app uses Google services for maps, push notifications or in-app payments, you will need to replace these APIs with Nokia-specific APIs, which have been built to work almost identically to those they replace. Nokia services have been designed to minimize porting effort for apps using corresponding Google services, and to allow developers to develop and distribute a single APK targeting both ecosystems.

4. Develop apps for Nokia X using your existing Android SDK, toolkit and skillset
If you already develop Android apps, you can continue to use your existing tool chain. If your app is one of the approximately 25% that requires change, Nokia provides a plugin package for the Android SDK, including the services APIs and the Nokia X emulator. You’ve already got the other tools and skills you need.

5. Nokia Developer programs provide the marketing promotion you need
Through programs like DVLUP and local outreach, Nokia offers you opportunities to promote your apps to new users and potential customers, while our online training, events, and support tools make sure you’re putting your best app forward.
Here are four DVLUP challenges to get you started:

We look forward to seeing your great apps running on Nokia X phones.

IFTTT (if "this" then "that")

Put the internet to work for you.

View Now

IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement:
If this, then that. We call 'this' the Trigger, and 'that' the Action. Together, it is a Recipe.
IFTTT is pronounced like “gift” without the “g.”

The this part is a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.”

The that part is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”
