Motorola says that the Moto Z and G4 lines will get Nougat updates “beginning in Q4”

It’s a frequent woe of Android users: you buy that fancy, top-of-the-line phone in the summer or fall, and you just know it’s going to take the manufacturer months to get around to releasing the updated software that Google pushes out soon. They tend to issue press releases or Twitter posts promising support for the new update, though dates are typically either absent or vague. Such is the case with...

Seven surprising facts about the open rates of push notifications

push notifications are like stepping into the same space as your user, wherever they may be: at any moment you can reach out and tap them on the shoulder. But just as in real life, a notification risks interrupting or annoying users if not done right. Every misstep reduces open rates, and in turn, retention and engagement. Notifications, in short, are both a powerful tool and a minefield for app developers. Luckily,...

This app writes ‘100% unique’ content in 2 minutes for a dollar – too good to be true?

‘Content marketing’ often amounts to nothing more than companies filling their blogs up with posts that try to make them seem smarter than they are, while saying nothing of any value to anyone at all. And if you’re going to get into that game, why spend time and effort crafting a 500-word article when you can buy a computer-generated one for a dollar? That’s the idea behind Article, a startup that...

The future of apps: How Salesforce is using low code development

While much of the focus on low-code development is on users as developers, the so-called ‘citizen developers’, they’re only part of the story. Yes, the fact that anyone can build an app is important, but it’s also important to note that experienced developers and designers are key to delivering compelling tools to end users. That doesn’t mean that developers can’t benefit...

La Russa opens up to Buck in candid TV interview

For most of his long and very successful run in St. Louis, he was Tense Tony. The guy who rarely smiled. The guy who managed a “Hard Nine.” The guy who couldn’t tell you how his day was going until after the Cardinals’ game was over. But it has been five years since Tony La Russa last managed the Cardinals, stepping down after the team’s miracle run to the World Series title in 2011. And the lighter...

Where Is Pokemon Go-ing?

After 74 days on the market, Pokemon Go this week lost the top revenue spot in Apple’s U.S. app store to Clash Royale, although it remains the highest-grossing app in Google’s Play store. While it may not be attracting as much revenue, Pokemon Go certainly has attracted more regulatory scrutiny than traditional mobile gaming apps like Clash of Clans or Candy Crush. Pokemon Go is arguably the most popular...
