A Hybrid Content Platform for a Harmonious Cross-Channel Experience and the Best Customer Journey
The ubiquitous spread of mobile devices has reached a fever pitch, and, yet, it still shows no signs of slowing down. Over 6 billion smartphones are projected to be in use by 2020, which means your website — and anything related to your online presence — better perform amazingly on a mobile device. Text, graphics, calls to action, video — it all needs to make sense and load quickly across a variety of smaller screens and operating systems, or you stand to lose out on traffic and dollars. Especially since video content continues its meteoric rise in popularity over other types, the need for optimized video is especially crucial.
Regardless of whether you're a marketer, a small-business owner, a blogger, or a YouTube star, the time for making great video — LAI Video can help with that — and optimizing that video to ensure it's easy to watch on a mobile device is now.

Over two and half years ago, I wrote that wearables would be the next "disruptive innovation" but acknowledged we're not there yet. Once the right company with the right design comes along, this new market will take off just as fast as when Apple introduced their first iPad. Despite Apple introducing their smartwatch, I still sit on the sidelines waiting for the right wearable to convince me the time to buy one is now. According to the findings from a recent survey unveiled by Kentico, I'm not alone.
What a great irony it is that we live in a world where there is more than enough food to feed all seven billion people, yet statistics show that 870 million people go hungry every year. One person out of every nine lacks the daily nutritional requirements to “be healthy and lead an active life.” At this point, ending world hunger depends not on getting more food, but on improving technologies that identify where it is needed most, and get it distributed there quickly and efficiently. New technologies are saving impoverished, starving populations especially in eastern, central, and southern Africa. Research shows that half of those in need are in Asia and the Pacific, and another quarter are on the African continent.

A report by ComScore suggests that more than 60% of web traffic generated by leading nine US retail sites have been mobile users.

A new technology and a new development trend refer irrevocably to a new opportunity rather than just a challenge. 2015 has been a happening year with several new and breakthrough trends in design and development began journey showing great promises. There are some interesting trends that are already looming large in the horizon. Let us have a closer look at the 8 killer mobile app development trends to unfold in 2016.
