Customer experience would be the key business differentiator in the coming years. Brands and their business decision-makers, customer service analysts and scholars around the world share this common opinion when it comes to exploring ways of gaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace. The same endeavor found a reflection in the Apple’s modus operandi in the concluding WWDC 2016. With the announcement of iOS 10, which is expected to hit the market by the fall of the year, Apple plans to fuel its customer experience strategy and make a bigger impact in the market. Undeniably, it’s not going to materialize without the active support of every Swift app development company and their development teams.
Let’s take a look at the prominent resources made available by the company in its latest IDE (Integrated Development Environment), i.e. Xcode 8.0 Beta to favor the development of iOS 10-compatible apps.
Source Editor Extensions
Xcode 8 adds support for Xcode Source Editor Extensions. Application Extensions provide additional commands in the Xcode Editor menu. The extensions can be used to modify texts and selection areas. Swift app developers may use the Xcode
Push Notification Explained
Push Notification – What Is It?
In essence, the answer to the notifications are extremely positive. You may see within the status the app was connected to the Apple Notification servers. It’s an absolutely free app you can download and test push notifications in almost no time in any respect. It’s possible for You to manage every one of these notifications in Settings.
Get Pending Notifications
Pending notifications are such notifications which are received as the application wasn’t active. Now click the notify button and you may see a notification within the top notification bar. The user is not going to obtain any future push notifications. Push notifications on the opposite hand aren’t scheduled by the app.
Then opening a brand new app for the very first time, you’re sometimes asked if you’d like to enable the app to send you notifications. The complimentary account features support for five apps and a million devices, that could find an endless quantity of notifications. This figure shows a summary of how Amazon SNS is employed to send an immediate message to a mobile endpoint. To start
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the main international standards organization for the World Wide Web. W3C was founded in 1994 by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and author of the first Web server and client program as well as author of HyperText Markup Language (HTML), the computer language primarily used to publish information on the Web. W3C is composed of member organizations from Apple, Inc. to Zhejiang University who work together to develop and maintain standards for the Web as well as educating, developing software and serving as a forum for discussion about the Web. Members of W3C include businesses, nonprofit organizations, universities, governmental entities, and individuals.
W3C’s purpose is to create standards that allow common accessibility among all users of the Web, particularly by addressing incompatibility issues between industry vendors, essentially making it a quality control apparatus for the Web. Standards recommended by member organizations proceed through a four-step process before they are certified as being W3C-compatible.
According to the W3C’s Web site, their mission is “to lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing protocols
Whether, its 24 seconds or 24 hours, most people spend at least a portion of their days using websites and applications. An important component of a good looking website or application is the layout of its various elements, including menus. User Interface designers are the conductors of this background orchestra.
The user interface of any website or application typically involves those objects that a user sees and interacts with directly on their screen. Such objects include the main content section (document space), menus, dialog boxes, icons, images, and even animations or videos. However, the user interface is only one aspect of the overall user experience. Other factors that affect the user experience are not always visible to the user. Still, they are integral to any website and critical to its usability. These features include start-up time, latency, error handling, and other automated tasks that are completed in the background, usually without any direct user interaction.
In general, a user interface requires action by a user to accomplish a task, while a great user experience can be achieved, at least theoretically, with no user interface at all.
It is becoming easier to create websites and mobile apps, thanks to the popularity of WYSIWYG applications

As a lot of criteria would differ a newbie programmer from an experienced and skillful one, one of the most important criteria is the ability to debug their own code.
A beginner programmer would write his code snippet, leave parts “for later”, without spotting the fact that they left a bunch of bugs, compile and run the code, and then see that his code doesn’t work, for some weird reason. Well, starting from the compilation part to noticing that everything is screwed up is a part of programming itself, and bugs on the first compilation doesn’t make you a bad programmer.
But the difference between bad/inexperienced programmers and skillful/experienced programmers starts here. Most of the “programmers” out there would think about their problem for (maximum) 5-10 minutes, then go to StackOverflow/FXP/Their senior programmer friend, and post something like that:
My code doesn’t work. Here it is:
Please fix it to me.
If you can’t spot at least 3 wrong things about this post, well, you should start thinking about a new career. This post shows a typical “I have never really tried to solve this problem, solve it for me” way of thinking. You can immediately see that:
- “My code doesn’t work” – Well, OK
NFC is something you may have already heard of (kind of a feature new smartphones have), but was not sure what that was. This acronym stands for near field communication, a technology which has been invented not so long ago and which seem to have a bright future. What is so special in it?
Near field communication technology allows easily and intuitively use your smartphone for some special purposes. It provides contactless two-way communication between devices, which are located in close vicinity (1-4 cm) from each other, thus you may send and receive data with that.
Looks like something like Bluetooth? That’s right, but with NFC your device spends much less power and a wireless connection is established quicker. Also, there are no additional barriers like pairing or mutual discovery in NFC. It is easier to set up NFC than Wi-Fi or Bluetooth – it just starts working automatically! No need to launch any application. By the way, due to shorter range, the probability of unwanted interception is reduced to a minimum.
Speaking to the point, NFC uses short radio frequencies to establish automatic wireless connection between two devices.
What Is NFC Used For?
There are three basic application fields of NFC:
1. Card emulation: NFC-enabled
If I ask you to name the must-go place for every Android users, hardly, anybody would do an error by deviating from Google Play. The official app store of Android is getting bigger and bigger with every passing day. The number of app download went up from 1 billion in August 2010 to 65 billion in May 2016. Definitely, the success can be attributed to the incessant effort of every Android app development company and their developers.
However, way to Google Play is not easy. In fact, it’s getting tougher with every passing day. Google demands more commitment to quality from every Android mobile app development company. Here is a list of content materials that are not accepted by Google in the submitted apps.
Sexually Explicit Content
Companies in Android development should avoid building apps with content materials depicting sex acts or sexually suggestive poses, promoting sexually explicit user-generated content or content showcasing, describing or encouraging bestiality or marketing sex toys.
Google not just turns down apps containing any kind of child sexual abuse materials but also exercises legal measures. Google Accounts of such app development companies are also seized.
An Android app development company should refrain from building apps containing or depicting any
Salesforce users have been complaining majorly about the User Interface being clunky. The web has moved to responsive design and the Salesforce UI did not evolve at the same rate, initially. This made Salesforce reconsider the way their platform is designed and the way apps are built on it. All this led to the launch of a new platform that Salesforce has named as ‘Lightning’ and is also called “The future of CRM”. Lightening is designed to bring additional analytics and in-line intelligence to drive more sales and is a completely new implementation of Salesforce.

Pushing the side button will display apps in an arc and a new action drawer at the bottom of the display will provide context-specific actions similar to the ones we find on the smartphone.
The new update will unclutter the interface, especially for spherical interface with the well placed cards. Smaller icons are displayed instead of huge messages and the notifications are easier manage with a progress bar on the bottom display showing how many cards are left in the stack. When the user raises the watch to activate it, the notification card will be first pulled up before it is hidden. Bottom to top swiping action will enable the user to normally view the notifications. The cards themselves have been redesigned with light text on a black background and dark text with white background. The two options are offered as a battery saving moving and lessen intrusion
If you want to be on the top of success, you need to keep up with the times. After all, what was the latest innovation yesterday, tomorrow may become old and useless. There are strong reasons why you should regularly redesign your website.

Being able to program a computer or create software is akin to knowing another language. This is not something that comes easily to everyone, and in the very beginning, it was nearly impossible for most to master.
There was no conception of computing in the worlds of our ancient ancestors. Their conceptions of computing were limited to math skills, and the technology used was an abacus. Simple devices that used pegs and cams were later used to control movements, but this is a far cry from what the world is used to today.
Real computer programming can be traced back to the 1880’s and the recording of data that was then read by a machine. This was accomplished using simple punched cards, and became the foundation of the data processing industry. In 1896 the Tabulating Machine Company was founded which would later turn into a small company we now know as IBM.
Before the 1950’s it was likely to find that each machine was using a different set of instructions, even when they served the same purpose. This was due to each program being painstakingly created individually, which led to slight variations from one machine to the next.

Dispensing of information is highly crucial for efficient military operations. It is a highly technical field mandating for rugged computers. Indeed, maintaining a high level of communication has laid the foundation for using highly efficient computers. This is the reason that they are required to be fit for rugged usage. Moreover, it is expected from them that the machine is required to be fit for withstanding harsh environs. Being an important part of daily operations, portable computers are easy to carry and possess almost the same configurations that expected. Obviously, they are said to be the gift of technology capable of performing in every condition.
At times, there are conditions that mandate a military office to shift the base because of specified reasons. In this condition, having computers with rugged characteristics or the ones that can be moved on immediate basis are always preferred. For this purpose, one should buy computers that have the ability to withstand changing weather conditions and do not get wear out. Besides just the heat factor, suitable military portable computers should also be powered to stay operational in extreme cold. Certainly, it happens that electronic items like computers may become prone to wear and tear at
Fiber optic cables are applied in almost every area. They are used in telecommunication, medical and even in entertainment. When you look at the cable you might have the impression that it’s made up of only one part but this isn’t the case. The cable has many parts that include:
This is the very center of the cable and is made up of a thin piece of glass that provides the path that light travels. The core has an outside diameter of 125 microns and is found in both single-mode and multimode fibers.
This is the optical material that covers the core. The material is usually glass but there are some exceptions where there are some cladding materials that are made from plastic. The role of the cladding is to surround the core and also reflect light signals back to the core. If you didn’t know, light signals don’t travel in a straight like inside the core. From time to time they get out of their intended angle. It’s the role of the cladding to put these signals back to the core.
As you might have guessed, the coating surrounds the core. The coating is usually made from plastic and its role
With the ability to carry out tasks speedily and keeping abreast of the technological developments, portable computers are making a mark in the business sector.

I hear variations of “How can I get more storage space on my MacBook Air?” and “I’m out of room on my MacBook Pro Retina” all the time. Until recently, all we could do was delete files from the disk in order to free up space. Now, however, we have options.
Option Number 1: Transcend JetDrive Lite
Many MacBook Airs and all MacBook Pro Retinas come with an SDXC card slot on the side. It’s there so you can take the card out of your camera and stick it right into the laptop for transferring photos to the Mac. Turns out almost nobody uses that slot, so it’s just sitting there doing nothing… until now. Transcend makes a product called the JetDrive Lite in 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB sizes, and all you do is pop it into that unused SDXC card slot, instantly increasing the storage capacity of the machine.
The JetDrive Lite is designed to fit absolutely flush with your laptop rather than stick out a little, like a normal SDXC card would, and since the various Apple laptop models use different SDXC slots it is important to get the card that’s made for your machine. That’s not hard:
