Mobile Web-How are businesses appealing to mobile phone users?

Mobile Web has came along way! When phones first came out there was no internet access but as time evolved internet started to become availble on phones. At that poing they were trying to make it as close as they could to the real internet. Although when they first came out there were gliches but now they run so smoothly like the actual internet that almost all companies are using mobile web as a web source. Companies are trying to make it easier for the users as well as keep up in technoloy. But the one thing they are using the mobile web for is to promote thier buisness on phones. They stuctured websites to be compatible with phones so for example you want to know what may be on sale at JCPenny’s. Two ways to do this, you can either download the JCPEnny’s app or you can go online through your phone and type in JCPenny and look at the sales online. The reason for apps is to make it easier to navigate and made just for mobile viewing so your not having to scroll fro left to right or up and down on your mobile. Businesses want to be able to reach almost anyone ad when mobile web came along the buisnesses wanted to also be on board. Apple uses barcodes to allow you to scan coupons or recieve deals to your email so that you can use them when you shop. Apple has gotten so advanced that they are getting to the point where you can take the phone to the checkout line and they can scan the barcode that is on your phone. Technology is everchanging everyday. CAN YOU KEEP UP WITH TECHNOLOGY?

Smartphones-Compare Phones and Features

Smartphones are great, they run just like an actual computer. They are trying to make app buying on smartphones easy and quick to install. Pretty much you can do anything with smartphones. You can take great photos from smartphones and the picture quality is awesome. I have a smartphone and although it runs like a computer it also has its gliches. Some of the gliches are that it freezes. Another problem is that it can drain your battery because their will be programs running in the background. There are differences in the types of smart phones, the differnce can vary on how the phone system is running, from the screen to baterry life it has. Its like comparing the Iphone to an android the operating system that it uses is totally different. The Iphone is using a computer like system that runs exactly like a computer, you are able to downoad apps but the apps are not all free. They do have apps that are free but there are alot you will have to buy. Android is also like a computer but not as complex you have a little more freedom to be able to download and get free apps. There are tons of free apps you can download and also you can download music very easily where as an Iphone you will have to download from itunes. But smartphones are the new and soon i think androids and iphones will become even more simplified to make life easier.
