Apple Watch finally ARRIVES to take on the world with promises to usher a new revolution in Health and Fitness. While the privileged guests at the Flint Center, Cupertino on September 9, 2014 keynote were left mesmerized with the technological marvel of the indigenous Apple product, it comes with a ray of hope for the wearable app development industry.
Apple Watch: Redefining the Health & Fitness App Industry
The Apple Watch is designed with the noble intent to promoting health and fitness, where you can SET GOALS for yourself, KEEP A LOG and TRACK YOUR FITNESS achievements.

Well, Apple Watch monitors and tracks a wider variety of your health and fitness activities by collecting a wide range of data using the accelerometer – that measures your total body movement. It also comes with a custom sensor that can measure intensity by tracking your heart rate; besides using the GPS in your iPhone to track the distance you have moved – so as to arrive at a comprehensive data.
With cash transactions emerging as the least preferred mode of payment, contact-less payment systems like credit cards, debit cards, smartcards and other devices using radio-frequency identification are used for making secure payments. However, more recently the contact-less payment system is experiencing a paradigm shift as it is making way to the all-digital age with Mobile Contact-less Payment.
What is Mobile Contactless Payment?
Mobile Contactless Payments is a path-breaking payment system where smartphones equipped with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology is used mainly for performing small transactions. Here, customers using contactless payment technology in their mobile phones are allowed to pay for goods and services by simply holding their mobile device to the contactless payment terminal.
Usually given a maximum limit of 15-20 bucks, mobile contactless payment is ideal for making quick, low-value transactions like purchasing tickets in trains and buses, a quick bite or coffee at a food joint or the last minute buying of a birthday card. The privileges it brings are:
- No physical contact with the terminal.
- Customers are NOT required to enter a PIN.
- Authorization or receipts NOT required.

Essential Elements of a Successful BYOD Program
Posted in BYOD | Posted on 03-06-2014
Bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon is making inroads into the corporate world at a rapid pace. Employees want to use their personal smartphones, iPads, tablets and laptops at work to access enterprise data and systems. While many companies have been and still are skeptical of this growing trend, there seems to be no stopping. Many believe BYOD increases employee morale and productivity. Sheer freedom and the convenience of using their own devices, makes employees feel liberated and happy. Employees are more comfortable with and adept at using a personal device – making them more productive.
Very often personal devices are updated and cutting-edge, so enterprise gain huge benefits using latest features. Further, BYOD programs shift costs to the user. After all employees end up paying for mobile devices and data services. It appears to be a win-win situation for employees and employers. Right? Well, not exactly. When you let users bring their own devices, you are putting a lot at stake in terms of corporate security and confidentiality.
Of course, you shouldn’t let users bring in any devices they want and open floodgates of risks. There are some very strong arguments not to allow BYOD. Security concerns happens to top the list, but is certainly not the only factor playing on the minds of decision makers and IT teams. Organizations ultimately tend to lose the control, especially in absence of well-defined BYOD polices.
