On the heels of the release of iPhone 5 and iOS 6, YouMail, the most complete call solution and management app for the iPhone, has just rolled out an update to the app that is its most significant yet. YouMail now includes in-app, numberless messaging that allows users to drop voice messages and other recording to YouMail’s nearly three million registered users across iOS, Android and Blackberry without even dialing a number. Users can also use this feature to drop voice memos and other digital recording to themselves.
President Obama is a loyal Blackberry user. He hasn’t really tested other mobile operating systems as far as we know, but he did come across an iPhone recently. The press took notice and snapped some pictures. The next day, the media was abuzz on Obama, Blackberry and iPhone. But what’s the hype?
The Chronology of Mobile Technology Evolution
After the introduction of the Motorola RAZR in 2004, consumers and electronic companies started to define what a cell phone should look like–small and thin. But as the Apple iPhone became a hit in 2007, the definition of a cell phone, or should I say smartphone, became tall and wide (but still thin). How did this sudden change occur in less than a decade? The answer lies within a phone’s software.
Tech is changing rapidly as the future becomes the now. While our current reality is made up of touch screen phones and 3D TV’s, back in the 90′s when the Internet was only emerging and a cell phone was considered a privileged luxury, these concepts seemed a distant future. Today SheBytes brings you some of the most awaited and overly ambitious concepts we can’t wait to see live.
The current smartphone market resembles a battlefield between iPhone and Android devices, which according to “Inman News” make up nearly 75% of the market. RIM’s Blackberry is currently working hard to regain its market stability after 4.5 percentage decline to 17.2%. In order to regain its consumer base RIM is desperately trying to keep up with current market trends, therefore a lot of resources are being spent on coming up with concepts that could turn around the current situation. The “Empathy” smartphone concept is something we would love to see hit the shelves in the near future. Empathy is a concept that was put together by “Art Center College of Design” and it features a freshly revised look for upcoming Blackberry handsets.
If you’re wondering how long the iPhone 4S battery lasts; the answer is: not very long. In fact, iPhone 4S battery life issues have customers complaining…a lot.
We all know that any Apple release; the whole drama, from inception through production and delivery is, well pretty dramatic. No Apple product would get its proper welcome into the world without at least one issue people love to gripe about:
With the iPhone 4S, there’s some serious battery issues!
The iPhone 4S is here; we have an official SheBytes reveiw and pictures of the new iPhone! The release was today; our unboxing and your first look!
The wait is officially over and we have a first look at the iPhone 4S! For those of you who tried avoiding queues that started forming as early as 6am this morning (the more active fans were already there from night before) we bring you images in our “Unboxing of iPhone 4s” which was purchased just couple hours ago at Apple’s Upper West side store.
iOS 5 is here!
After months of anticipation, Apple has revealed the features of its fresh and revamped iOS 5. Since the iOS 5 was first announced at June’s WWDC, we have been ticking down the days of the calendar, but at last it has arrived!
10am Pacific time thousands rushed to their freshly updated iTunes 10.5 to download the new software update. The update brought us over 200 new features; we will highlight a couple of the most exciting ones for you today!
Google will acquire Motorola Mobility! There’s been a huge amount of internet activity surrounding the announcement on Monday.
Our friends at Engadget did a great post on the breaking news; which we borrowed the above picture from, but I would like to expand on the acquisition further.
Wondering how the app evolved? There’s a process to the app evolution! Mobile technology has forever revolutionized the way we compute, predominantly via apps. Above is a nice infographic illustrating the history and evolution of mobile apps. For instance, the iPhone App Store has generated over 4 billion downloads, totaling over $3 billion in revenue –WOW!
We think BlackBerry is the new Motorola…. gasp!
If you’re over 21, that means a couple of things. In Israel, it means you’ve probably already finished your army service, so congratulations. In America, it means that you can legally drink…congratulations once again. For the intents and purposes of this post, it means that you’re old enough to remember when Motorola was the king of mobile phones.
