New and improved YouTube app out for iOS now

by: Simon HillSeptember 12, 2012
We reported on the revelation a while back that Apple will not be including a YouTube app in iOS 6, the new version of its mobile platform. YouTube was a default app, although Apple rarely updated it and didn’t support all content or ads. Apple’s licensing deal expired and it wasn’t really clear whether the decision was based on animosity from Apple’s side or Google’s discontent at missing out on potential revenue.

We’ve seen many a statistics that compare sales numbers between different platforms, but not many have touched upon the subject of screen size and how it affects consumer behavior.

Facebook Android app updated, but not good enough

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 23, 2012
Facebook has updated its Android app with event creation and support for photos and emoji in messages. But the incremental update is nothing compared to the latest iOS release, which brings in drastic improvements, leaving Android users short-changed.

IDC: Android jumps to 68.1% global market share, iOS slips to 16.9%

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

According to IDC, Android and iOS now represent 85% of the 152 million smartphones sold in Q2 2012, globally. But while the iPhone kept growing in raw numbers, it couldn’t keep up with Android, and its market share slipped from 18.8% to 16.9%.  The iPhone has always been around 20% market share or lower globally, and with the upcoming iPhone coming out soon, it’s not that surprising that its sales would fall.

On the other hand, Android has simply kept on growing, and its global market share is inching closer towards passing the 70% mark, now being at 68.1%. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything stopping Android from [...]
