As a company for app development, we get many requests and ideas concerning Apps. Therefore, we have a comprehensive overview of what is in demand on the market, and what are the customer expectations. Often, such expectations are not realistic and preclude success. We have designed a series of articles that can be read on Mobile Zeitgeist. In these texts, we have put together the most important questions that you should ask yourself before implementing an app idea.

Testflight from Apple is a program with which beta testing for iOS applications can be performed. It consists of a service, which provides the functions, and an app on the test device that interacts with the user. Testflight is especially interesting from the perspective of developers, because they get faster feedback. Also for companies, the use of Testflight is an advantage, because what helps in development increases productivity.

Testflight has been used by app developers as an beta test platform since several years. Apple bought the service this year in connection with the acquisition of Burstly, the company that originally developed the platform. Apple has redesigned the program and made it available as an integrated iOS 8 service for both developers and testers.

Certainly you’ve read some of the many news and articles about the new version 8 of Apple’s iOS, which circulated in the past few months in the media. All the new functions and applications where described extensively in these texts. In business, this is important, but equally important are things that home users mostly do not care for. These mainly include data security, a coordinated management of the mobile equipment and the software as well as an accurate measurability of productivity improvement.

Both Google and Apple are entering the smartwatch market: Google with the operating system “Google Wear”, Apple with a custom iOS version and the corresponding hardware. This will be the first serious attempts to establish this new market. Initially, the key application are fitness, social networks and the controlling of apps. But why shouldn’t smartwatches be used also in the industrial sector – similar to phones and tablets?

From a normal user’s point, this time it’s not a revolution: in contrast to iOS 7, the new version 8 is – according to Apple – rather an evolution. For programmers, however, a lot has changed. Several new features have been added, whose impact will be visible only in the future in the form of newly developed APPs. iOS 8 is expected to be available in Autumn 2014.
