One truth remains a hurdle for [#protected_0#]: it’s just not a great platform for enterprise. From a consumer perspective, Android is plenty secure. For enterprise, it needs help. With the next “major” version of Android (an “L” release), it seems those entities wanting a mobile platform they can better manage will be coming.
This information comes to us from, well, The Information. According to two of their sources, one who is involved with the latest version of Android and one “briefed” on the upcoming iteration, there will be additional security features cobbled in. This time, there will be the ability to partially wipe a device remotely. That way, if your device is lost or stolen, your company can effectively cover their bases and eliminate access to a VPN.
This is also useful if you change departments or leave your job. It also makes a BYOD program more attractive, as a partition of company data can be wiped clean if you’re no longer with an employer. Google is also said to be working with chipset manufacturers on various changes to assist with this vision.
Google may be asking chipset OEMs to let passwords be stored on their chips. There is also talk of stronger encryption, though no details are offered up just yet. Of course, it’s still early days for the next Android, and we’ve got no reliable timeframe for when we’ll get this “L” release.
Miami, Florida – Having iOS device means having the best and requests using the best software available. The best is not always the most expensive, yet certainly is the most cost-efficient. Therefore, using CallsFreeCalls tool to call worldwide free is definitely the best solution. The new 3.1 version of iOS app was released recently, offering even more features and benefits.
What does calling worldwide free mean? This means exactly what it seems – any CallsFreeCalls customer can call or text any phone number in more than 140 countries worldwide without spending any money! Sounds too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look.
CallsFreeCalls uses bonuses system for phone payments. Sponsors place their offers and pay some sum of money, which is represented by some amount of bonuses. Customers can earn these bonuses by completing sponsorship offers. Bonuses can later be spent on free calling and texting worldwide. Therefore, customers do not spend their money; they only spend some of their free time.
Really, why not completing some offers while travelling on a train, going home after school on a bus, waiting in a traffic jam or whenever you have some free time? Instead of shooting birds or running between trains you can spend your time earning bonuses for future use and saving your money!
The offers are multiple, the most common are:
* Viewing some ads
* Answering polls and queues
* Downloading different useful and entertaining apps for your iOS device
Sponsors’ list is vast and their offers are updated regularly, so users can earn bonuses the way they want. To say more, CallsFreeCalls regularly holds different events and rewards winners with decent amounts of bonuses. To say even more, internal texting inside CallsFreeCalls network does not even spend bonuses, saving a ton of money for families and companies, friends and colleagues.
What is new in this release?
CallsFreeCalls uses top-notch achievements of communication technologies, allowing their users to stay in touch literally anywhere if there is at least 8Kbit/sec Wi-Fi coverage (other operators require at least 32 or even 64). Therefore, CallsFreeCalls is light years ahead the competition, offering a quality of services other VoIP messenger operators cannot achieve nowadays.
However, there always is room for improvement. One of the most important sources of ideas for development is customers’ feedback. For example, default violet color did not look nice with certain cases of iPhones. After receiving requests to add several color schemes, CallsFreeCalls responded with a revolutionary solution – they made their app fully customizable, so each user can select the color fitting his style best and adjust all other profile settings to their liking!
New release of CallsFreeCalls app for iOS devices provides such features:
* Increased list of sponsorship offers
* Updated partnership window interface
* Improved performance, especially in bad connection areas
* Several minor bug fixes
CallsFreeCalls does their best to meet and exceed customers’ expectations. New updates are to come soon, offering even more convenient and useful features. Stay with us or join us if you are not our customer yet, use multiple benefits our service has to offer and remember: “Together we unite the continents!”

Finish, the Apple Design Award (ADA) winning productivity app for iPhone, is going free. The new, free version will be limited to 10 tasks timeless tasks. If you want more tasks, or you want to be able to set due dates, you can upgrade to Finish More via a .99 in-app-purchase (IAP).
Designer Ryan Orbuch is also teasing what’s coming next — Finish for iPad, with a new, tablet-optimized user experience and iCloud sync.
The decision to go free was motivated by a desire to get even more people to give Finish a try. The App Store remains a tough, competitive, sometimes impenetrable market and customers are still hesitant to part with even a dollar or two up front. So, the Finish team are hoping free will get people in the door, and the IAP will be fair and functional enough to help the make enough money to keep Finish going for months and years to come.
Since it’s a one-time upgrade, and the functionality it unlocks is really valuable, I’m hoping they get a ton of support. If you haven’t tried out Finish, stop procrastinating and give it a shot. Then let me know — what do you think of the new free + IAP model?
Following adjustments made to the Android app version late last year, Google has finally added in-app purchase indicators on the web interface of Google Play Store as well. This little hint could help users know what they’re in for when installing that new game or app.
In-app purchases, or IAP for short, is a sort of two-edged sword. In some ways, it has helped keep some apps free while giving developers a way to still get revenue. On the other hand, however, it seems to have also degraded into a form of modern trialware, sometimes holding even basic functionality or content for ransom. In worse cases, especially in games, it can also be a source of imbalance.
Whatever your take on IAP, it sometimes pays to know which apps have it and which ones don’t. Google added an IAP indicator for each app’s page on Google Play Store for Android last December and now it is doing the same for the web. It may not be a huge improvement, but every little bit counts. At least now you can get an idea which apps or games might not offer the full experience for free, or even after paying a few bucks.
Unfortunately, this system is far from perfect. For one, the IAP indicator doesn’t show up in searches but only in each app’s specific page, though that behavior is consistent with the Android version. Google also doesn’t distinguish if the IAP is for additional or extra content, like power-ups in a game, or is used for upgrading to a pro version, like in Dayframe Prime. though that practice might not actually be in line with Google’s policies anyway.

Pfaeffikon, Switzerland – Power APP AG announced the release of version 3.0 of Wrap Camera, their picture editing app that allows wrapping and rolling of pictures as if they were printed on paper.
With this version Wrap Camera is ready for iOS7. As part of the update also new functions have been added to the app.
“Ensuring compatibility with iOS7 was the main goal of this update, which is why we jumped directly to version 3. But both we and our customers felt the need to have more functions available, so that all the editing can be done in a single app, avoiding having to switch to a separate app just for one type of special effect. Adding brushes, speech bubbles, white balancing, split functions and additional filters completes Wrap Camera even more” states Christian Schaffner, GM of Power APP.
New functions include brushes for painting and blurring/bokeh, cropping/zooming functions as well as additional finishing filters.
“Wrap Camera has gone a long way since its first release. The original goal was to bring back the feeling of when pictures were printed on paper, giving back the user to wrap, roll and rip pictures. Extending the functionability of Wrap Camera was a must to make it a professional picture editing app without loosing all the paper fun” explains Christian Schaffner.
