WhatsApp Bought by Facebook

Standard

Facebook recently bought WhatsApp. The price stands for $19 billion. After Facebook acquired Instagram, it bought another rival to remove all obstacles to be at No.1. But the price it paid is considered too high. It shows Facebook purchase of whats app was quite in panic condition and not a planned and well thought process.

Image

Instagram and WhatsApp were the two main rivals which had some potential to pip Facebook. Instagram, the apps which provides the facility of applying filters to the pics and are a true boon to the new photographer or the people who don’t know photography was bought by Facebook in 2012. The cost Facebook paid to buy Instagram was $1 billion.

Now, WhatsApp is the latest acquisition of Facebook. The apps which were focused photo sharing; file sharing etc has the option of connecting to friends and thus had all the features which Facebook do posses. It is the report which says that people preferred to have WhatsApp over Facebook app. The mobile users highly prefer WhatsApp over Facebook apps. Thus it raised an alarm in facebook and they panicky bought it.

Image

Thus Facebook gave away $20 billion dollar to acquire both of its rivals. Now they are in total control of mobile. But is it justified paying such a huge amount to buy them. Why could Facebook not have developed a rival app to counter those? Only Facebook knows. But what have they done now is that with the buying of these apps they have completely removed rivals from the field and now they are in full control and won the race.

Android Apps in Windows Store!!!!!

Standard

Android Apps in Windows Store!! Yes, you read correct. Latest reports from various sources are suggesting that windows are considering providing Android Apps in windows store. The reports say, Intel are pushing Microsoft to provide android apps in its windows store. It has already been known to all that Microsoft is considering android apps to all windows phone and windows.

                                           The incoming reports say Android in mobile is equivalent to Windows on PCs. The Intel has already performed its operation of running both Android and Windows on same platform, thus making phones Dual OS. Many software companies too are running its development programs to allow both OS to run on same device. It is to be noticed that Windows are lagging behind in the market in comparison to Android and iOS and opting to run both OS will prove there loss of war against android. Some reports even say BlueStacks has been enabling Android apps to run on Windows for a few years now, and it has signed deals with Lenovo and Asus to ship its software on their PCs.

                                          It is to be seen in coming days how Microsoft implements android apps on windows as lots of issues come up in compatibility. The main issue to address before adopting both operating systems on same device is to solve the compatibility issues. Another big issue will be the trust of consumers and developers which will get negative towards Windows phone platform. Developers are now keen on android and iOS and no longer trust Windows. What lies in the future is still not confirmed but its confirm that Windows have to do something big and have to take some tough decisions ahead if they have to stay in the market of Phone.

The problem in old age was whenever a group in on tour and photos of groups were being taken, the photographer went missing. The reason was simple. The person who clicks the pic with some adjustable conditions can’t keep himself in pic. But now with the advent of an app named as ‘Groopic’, the problem is solved. Groopic solves this problem by including the photographer friend in every group photo. Now there is no need of Tripod or any stranger to click the pics. The process is quite simple. Take two pics, mark the photographers and the magic is done.

                                                            This app allows taking one picture of the group and then switching photographers and taking another. The app then mixes both the images into a single group photo without even asking a stranger to take a group shot of friends. To start with take your first picture, with your second photographer in the photo on one of the sides. Then the second photographer leaves the group to stand in the same location and lines up the photo with an onscreen ghost outline while you get in on the other side of the photo. Once shots are taken, the app asks to touch each of the photographers on the screen so it can make the complete group pic.
