Apple app developers 'switching allegiance' as Google's Android dominates market [Asian News International]

(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, Dec 29 (ANI):Google and its Android operating system for smartphones and tablets is claiming a victory over rival Apple, as computer software designers responsible for making iPhone and iPad apps are switching their allegiance.

To date, Apple devices have had a huge advantage over rival smartphones because they offer many more sophisticated apps such as games and business tools.' However, this head start is being eroded as devices running the Google Android software now have access to a growing and increasingly impressive library of downloads, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the paper, the Google software is running on three out of every four smartphones and tablets sold ahead of Christmas, which has created a huge and growing market for App developers.

In November, Apple had about 700,000 available Apps, which is about the same number as those available from Google's Android App store.

In September, Google announced that 25billion Apps had been downloaded to Android devices, while Apple hit 35 billion in October, the paper said.

Tens of millions more have been downloaded since Christmas day when people around the globe activated new smartphones and tablets, it added. (ANI) (c) 2012 aninews.in All rights reserved. Provided by Syndigate.info an Albawaba.com company

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.
