A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic]

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch


The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds.



****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.


**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind and imagine how it would look if you added what one of the readers said below.


One reader's comment:


Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


Excerpt:


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.


** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.


Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.


Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads

were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

Scobleizer interviews the CEO of News360, really interesting and this product is definitely something to take a look at. Watch this video, it's not going to do streaming, it's a news reader, business, sports, stories, breaking news. They'll show you what's happening on a topic from many other sources, they give you an excerpt, they scroll you to the exact spot in the story, it's like google news but done much better, paying attention to the user's experience.

 

Who is this app best for?

 

Everyone who is interested in the news will be their market. They have 5,000 users right now and anticipate 20,000 by the end of the year. This app is free.

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

 

September 1, 2011 By Robert Scoble

 

Posted by Kat Armstrong.

 

You’ll find a lot of news apps for your iPad, but there’s virtually nothing available for Android, the iPhone, a RIM Playbook, Windows Phone 7 devices or even your desktop. News360 is changing the game. The application makes use of semantic analysis to keep you informed of major ongoing events – and to give you content that is relevant to you.

 

The company’s CEO took the time to talk to me about the reasons their offering is something that you’re going to want. This app is in a very crowded space. They’re not only having to compete with things such as Flipboard. News360 also has to watch out for stand-alone apps such as the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. What makes this particular product stand out above the crowd?

Foursquare Gets Into The Crowdsourced Curation Game With Tip Lists

Foursquare Gets Into The Crowdsourced Curation Game With Tip Lists | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Foursquare encourages you to be the "go to person" in your local area about where to go through Tip Lists. Very clever....

 

Intro:

 

"Foursquare has launched its Tip Lists features today, attempting to capitalize on people's unending desire to create lists about locations, like Top Five Coffee Shops in SF, etc etc.

 

Foursquare has launched its Tip Lists features today, attempting to capitalize on people’s unending desire to create lists about locations, like Top Five Coffee Shops in SF, etc etc. Up until now your Foursquare Tips have sort of roamed free on the app, without rhyme or reason or real incentive to add more. Today the company is trying to improve on the Tips experience and get users to fancy themselves local experts. After all, you must know something about some place in the city you live in right?
