Mobile App Development: How to Develop Usable Mobile Apps?

But, usability plays crucial role in mobile app development too. Developing mobile application and developing "USABLE" mobile application, these two are totally different things. The success of mobile app you develop is heavily depended on how usable your mobile app is to the end user. With the growing popularity of mobile applications, the issue of usability is turning out to be headache for mobile app developers. There are no specific predefined set of rules or guidelines for usability of mobile apps, which application developers can follow. Moreover, every now and then mobile companies are introducing new mobile devices which make it almost impossible for mobile application developers to achieve usability or design usable mobile apps. Most of all the usability related issues are caused because of hardware, but few of them could be easily solved by mobile app developers with proper guidance. Below are some handy tips of essentials guidelines, which can help mobile app developers to develop usable mobile apps. 1. Don't overlook screen resolution! With the advancement in technology, mobile companies are introducing new mobile devices every day with more features. Each of them have different screen size, capabilities, and features, which makes it difficult for mobile application developers to develop usable mobile apps. However, developing one mobile app which is compatible with all the mobile devices is almost impossible. Thus, rather trying to make app more complex by adding unnecessary stuff, try to make your app as simple as possible with laser things. This will make it easy to run smoothly on almost every screen sized devices. 2. Pay more attention on color combination! Almost every handset today comes up with LCD display, which supports mind blowing colors & contrasts. Many novice developers often forget that mobile devices are meant for mobility and users can use it anywhere, either in sun light or in dark room, and incorporate few loud colors which make it difficult for users to read contents or text during day time or night. The simple way to get rid from this is to use most basic colors which are easily viewable by users and make it easy for them to ready contents hassle free. Use simple and minimal graphics within app. 3. Choose font style & size wisely! Mobile devices are tiny devices and thus, most of mobile handsets contain smaller and tiny fonts which are sometime impossible to read clearly. But, if you are developing mobile app then do try to use bigger fonts in order to make contents of your app easy to read for users. This will at the end helps to improve usability of your app. 4. What about button functionality? Mobile users sometimes fail to understand functionalities of various buttons within mobile device. Always try to make buttons within your mobile app more clear and appropriate, which helps users to easily identify their functionalities. You can also provide help menu to users in order to help them know functionalities of each buttons. 5. Keep in mind limitation of mobile devices! Many novice mobile app developers often include things which are hard to perform on tiny mobile device. Try to keep in mind practical limitations of mobile devices. Avoid making users to input lots of information through their mobile device. It will annoy them and make your app less usable to end users. Thus, try to enhance user experience by providing simple and clean UI within mobile app. 6. Wrapping up! Developing mobile app is always exciting and helps one to explore his/her creativity through it. Many companies offer mobile development services, but never pay attention to the usability of the app. But, making usable app is necessity in today's mobile age. Thus, try to follow above discussed guidelines or tips in order to develop usable mobile apps. ** Get Started with Mobile Applications Development and Marketing!

Maximize Your Profits In NFL Betting!

NFL betting can be a lot fun and at times, it requires concentration as well as discipline. Like any other sport, NFL betting requires a lot of information as well as understanding the teams in order for you to be successful at your bets. It’s not about betting on any team or game but rather you need to focus and pay so much attention on a particular game for that period so as to realize maximum profits. If you are a professional bettor or a regular NFL bettor, you certainly need to select the best games every week and a lot of research as well as paper work need to be done. You need to look at both sides – the favorites as well as the underdogs. Can the favorites win and cover the spread or will the underdogs lose and maintain the spread. Like I always point out to NFL bettors is that you should never be biased when placing your bets. Even if the team is good and there is a high possibility that it will win, does it mean it can cover the spread. Spread betting in NFL is what’s important when placing your bets. Spread betting plays a pivotal role in NFL betting. Having the ability to calculate the chances of a team wining and covering the spread can give you a 70% chance of winning all your bets but this can tend to be complex at times. As a sports bettor, you should consider various factors before you place your bets. Many bettors tend to focus mainly on the favorites but professional bettors need to look at both sides in order to maximize your dividend yield. Primarily, you need to do your research thoroughly. Do not be biased this is the first rule when it comes to NFL betting. Look at both teams and do comparisons between the two. Look back – historical events can help you maximize your profits. You can find out that the two teams have met previously and the favorites have won but always failed to cover the spread or the favorites have covered the spread 4 times and failed 5/6 times. Such information can surely tell you a lot as well as helping you to place your bets. Other vital sources of information can include how often each team has won at its home ground, is the team playing an away game or home game, etc. As a professional bettor such information influences your types of bets. It will help you decide whether to do the straight bets, parlays, line-bets, etc. With NFL betting, you need to select a good type of bet that will help you maximize your profits. For instance, if you are betting on money line bets, you certainly have to avoid betting on the favorites that have high juice. However, an important key factor is to keep track of certain factors throughout the season of each team. You need to keep track of each team’s records including its recent performance. Researching on every game will help you maximize your profits and this will help you to enhance and improve your NFL betting strategies. ** Huge Income Available Through Online Sports Betting!

Some Stock Reasons for Young Investors!

When Simon Riddell, a 22-year-old college graduate with a keen interest in investing, wrote me the other week, he was skeptical about the 20-year, double-digit stock returns I cited in a column. He argued that past performance is no guarantee of future results and that if we've learned anything from the 2000s, it's that equities don't always provide juicy returns. He has a point: If you look at only the last decade, the average annual return for the S&P 500 was minus 0.95 percent. But is Riddell just another 20-something who, having come of age during the Great Recession, is now turned off from stocks for good? "I am particularly pessimistic," he said, referring to the outlook for market returns. "And I have friends who've kept all their money in cash. They've seen their parents hit by the dot-com and housing bubbles and have their retirements wrecked." Young people still bearish … Even though the stock market has come a long way since bottoming in 2009, young investors continue to be skeptical of equities. A survey this year by MFS Investments found that members of Generation Y, which the survey defined as under age 31, have 33 percent of their investable assets in cash, compared with an average of 26 percent for all households. A study byT. Rowe Pricefound that fewer investors age of 21-50 were planning to contribute to their individual retirement account in 2011 than in the previous year, in part because of a lack of confidence in the markets. There's no question that it takes a good amount of resolve to be invested in stocks today. But as Stuart Ritter, a financial planner at T. Rowe, points out, the pendulum can swing both ways: Just as there's no guarantee that stocks will replicate the double-digit returns of the 1990s, there's also no telling if they'll repeat the losses of the last decade. Over longer periods, equities have tended to come out ahead. The average annual return for the worst 30-year period for the S&P 500 was 8.5 percent. Ritter also said that our brains are not wired to accurately think into the future. "When you ask people what the future is going to be like, whether it's five years or 50 years out, amazingly it looks a whole lot like the present," he said. "That's not a very good way to plan." … when they should be bullish Here's a better way: Do some math. I asked the folks at Morningstar to calculate the projected growth of retirement savings for a young investor. We assumed that a 25-year-old who earns $40,000 today would save 15 percent of his salary every year for the next 40 years. His salary would grow annually by the rate of inflation. And he would invest the money in a portfolio that started off with roughly 90 percent in equities but that would gradually shift to a mix of 50 percent stocks and 50 percent bonds by retirement age. Then we turned pessimistic: What if the investor got the worst possible outcome in the market while he saved? Over 40 years, his portfolio would grow to $651,400. What if he got the best possible outcome? The savings multiplied to $3.5 million. What if he stayed in cash the entire time? Under the best scenario, he accumulated only $555,200, nearly $100,000 shy of what he'd retire with in the worst stock market scenario. Here, Riddell can agree with me. "Whether stocks return 4 percent or 7 percent (after inflation), who knows?" Riddell said. "But I am confident that at my age it still does make sense to be investing in equity markets." ** Learn How To Profit From The Stock Market NOW!

So...How to Make a Smart Real Estate Purchase?

We’ve all heard the horror stories – people paying way too much for a house, not getting an inspection and then finding a million (expensive) problems with the place. I’ve seen it countless time with homeowners on Income Property and from talking to eager real estate investors. Here are my top five tips for making a smart real estate purchase so you don’t get burned! Stick to Your Budget: It’s easy to get carried away here, especially if you make the mistake of looking at houses outside your price range. The important part is to have a plan. Don’t just think about your mortgage payments every month; also think about your monthly carrying cost and be honest about your lifestyle. Consider how much you spend every month on eating out, clothing, etc. There’s nothing worse than being house poor because you weren’t honest about your spending habits. Don’t be Afraid to Walk Away: A house is an emotional purchase, since it’s where you’ll be living, raising your children and making a home for yourself. But it’s crucial to keep emotions out of the equation as much as possible. You should love your house, but you should love it because it’s in good condition and because the numbers work. Always get a home inspection and if you can’t afford it (or the work it requires), walk away! Give Every House a Chance: I do most of my real estate browsing online, as do most people now, but you can’t always judge a house by the virtual tour – good or bad. If you see something online and it has bad pictures (or no pictures) but it’s in the right neighbourhood or in your price range, go look at it! Chances are you can get a good deal because so many people will skip it without photos online. Think Long-Term: Before you jump into a real estate purchase, ask yourself: “What is the purpose of this property for the next 5-10 years?” Depending on your mortgage, you may have to lock in for a certain number of years, and if you think you’ll be moving in less than 5 years, I’d suggest looking at alternatives. You never want to be forced into selling your house. Have a Support System: Having a real estate agent who understands your financial and personal situation is key, and great advice from a mortgage specialist and lawyer can be invaluable to the home-buying process. But what many people forget is to have a personal support system in place when they go house hunting. Advice from those close to you – family members, a partner, friends – is just as important to help keep you on track and avoid getting carried away. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a house, so having the personal support will keep you grounded. ** Learn How to Buy, Sell and Finance Real Estate Properties!

Food

What is: Comfort Food?

Everybody has them -- and they're very personal. Elvis favored the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Oprah relies on sweet potatoes. Comfort foods. Foods that provide more than physical sustenance -- they're also like a warm fuzzy blanket for your soul. Yours might be mashed potatoes. Someone else might choose bacon and eggs. Or macaroni and cheese. One person's favorite may not even register with another. A study by Cornell University's Food and Brand Lab shows that men and women differ in their preferred comfort food. "Males tended to prefer meal-related comfort foods, things like steak, hamburgers, pasta, casseroles and soup," says researcher Brian Wansink. Women, on the other hand, tend to reach for snack-related foods, such as potato chips, cookies and candy. Wansink attributes this to women's association of meal-type foods with preparation and cleanup, which they consider taking care of others, not themselves. Unfortunately many comfort foods aren't very nutritious, so even though you are easing your stress, you're burdening your body with calories and fat. We all know what happened to Elvis! This doesn't have to be the case, however. We've done makeovers on some favorite recipes to make them healthier, without losing the flavors that bring us that familiar, cozy comfort. Eliminating comfort foods for a healthier diet can be stressful. Diet experts agree that simple modifications help, such as substituting ground turkey for ground beef -- or using whole or low-fat milk instead of cream. With a bit of experimentation, you can find foods that both comfort and nourish nutritionally, leaving you a little happier and a little healthier. And don't forget the real comfort of knowing that in spite of all that's swirling around you in today's world, you can find some contentment in the kitchen preparing healthful foods for yourself and your family. ** Best Cooking, Baking and Barbecue Recipes and Cookbooks!
