Mobile PM. Favorite side project http://gethoi.ch Joined about 3 years ago
Ummmmmm so despite being a regular lurker on designernews, this is the first time I hear of Designer News Market. Marketing fail?
Get a few mobile games on board and it's twitch.tv all over again.
It works! Finally a way to present mobile mockups created in keynote directly on the device...
Sorry to do this to you but you keep saying you have nothing to hide so I'm going to test that.
Your name pretty unique so very Google-able (as is mine) and in your public Google+ profile you're busy comparing a Muslum women's headscarf to a swastika - https://plus.google.com/102411988267766541496/posts/FbLqsHXYMne ( screenshot ).
IMO that's a pretty extreme worldview you have right there and makes me ask why I should be listening to you.
+1000. It really is an excellent talk. For example from the transcript on the TED website ...
The other really destructive and, I think, even more insidious lesson that comes from accepting "I have nothing to hide, so nothing to fear" is there's an implicit bargain that people who accept this have accepted: If you're willing to render yourself sufficiently harmless, sufficiently unthreatening to those who wield political power, then and only then can you be free of the dangers of surveillance. It's only those who are dissidents, who challenge power, who have something to worry about. There are all kinds of reasons why we should want to avoid that lesson as well. You may be a person who, right now, doesn't want to engage in that behavior, but at some point in the future you might. Even if you're somebody who decides that you never want to, the fact that there are other people who are willing to and able to resist and be adversarial to those in power — dissidents and journalists and activists and a whole range of others — is something that brings us all collective good that we should want to preserve.
Apps like this show the potential is there but Apple is going to have to improve their side of the user experience before customer keyboards can go mainstream.
Adding the keyboard via settings after you install the app is going to lose 80%+ of most potential users.
Meanwhile the whole cycling through keyboards to pick the right one is frustrating and has too many taps (I have two different language keyboards + EMOJIs + now Goji), especially if you miss the first time and have to cycle through again. Right now, for the use case Goji is targeting, I'm almost as quick opening the Yelp app, finding a coffee shop, copying the link and pasting it back into the chat app
Google Analytics ( App Tracking ). It has limitations but when you need to make analysis, it's fast and allows for all kinds of ad-hoc reporting.
That said recently was given a tour of Localytics by someone using it at a partner company, and was impressive. While the ad-hoc reporting was not as strong as Google Analytics, the default reports are excellent making it much easier to see how users are responding to your app.
But where was Condoleezza Rice?
Google+ "Stories" is pretty cool in terms of the "gallery" it creates automatically, by combining pictures taken with location and generating a "story" format for example: https://plus.google.com/+anilsabharwal/stories/e39549b6-120c-3653-b456-2457c19f8e56?authkey=1iJx3GJh
Was released back in May this year I believe - http://googleblog.blogspot.ch/2014/05/google-stories-and-movies-memories-made.html
It had to be big and visible: looking at a computer monitor or smartphone screen just doesn’t help you see months ahead into the future
Too true. Great to see someone challenging the accepted status quo
