iPad Air – Smaller, Faster, Lighter

photo

Picked up a 32 GB Space Gray iPad Air today and the reviews are true. The sensation of holding and using the lighter iPad is incredible. I can see myself using it more often for reading while still having the large screen for movies and videos. The A7 chip is remarkably faster.

Well done Apple.

It’s Here – iOS 7

iOS 7

iOS 7

It’s here and the most noticeable affect is the instant aging of any apps that have not been updated.

On the whole I’m very happy with the update, though I have only had it for a few hours. I have two complaints worth noting.

1. I find myself accidentally activating Spotlight search a fair bit. This may be the result of lazy swiping on my part.

2. Folders are designed to take on the background color which almost causes them to blend into the background (especially on the iPad.) While not a functional issue, it’s an aesthetic I’ll just have to get used to in iOS 7.

So far I haven’t experienced any issue with the update on my iPhone 5 or my iPad 4. This looks like another win for Apple.

Crave

5sI’m not a fan of the gold version, but that camera, processor and the fingerprint sensor add up to a very impressive phone.

Growing Your Small Business with DudaMobile

From a career perspective joining DudaMobile has been the most personally satisfying job I’ve ever held. There’s an indescribable feeling you get when you see a small business owner light-up the first time they see their mobile site on a smartphone.

But even more impressive is when they share how their mobile sites have helped them grow. We published a few success stories that I feel are worth sharing. I pulled some highlights below and linked to the full articles.

2012 Year in Review: Duda’s Greatest Moments

2013 is off to a great start, but as is common this time of year, Duda’s CEO, Itai Sadan, put together this great summary of 2012. It was a banner year for Duda, and great things are in line for 2013. We wouldn’t be where we are without our customers and resellers. We assembled 12 of our favorite mobile site from 2012 here.

I’ve been on board for just about a month, and while the learning curve has been steep, it’s also been eye-opening. There will be a lot more to talk about in the coming months.

Wishing you the best in 2013,

New gig: DudaMobile

I’m happy to announce that I have taken a new position at DudaMobile! As Partner Sales Manager I will be working to bring on new distribution partners and resellers of our platform.

DudaMobile is working to bring the mobile web to all. Now everyone from small business owners to web developers to resellers can quickly develop rich mobile web sites.

Here’s how it works.

Head to www.DudaMobile.com and plug in your URL. The platform then does the heavy lifting of reviewing your site and optimizing it for mobile browsing. Your logo, images, and pages are all updated for mobile on the fly.

Once the platform is done, you are presented with a feature-rich editor; change the navigation, update the color scheme, move and edit pictures and text. It’s all there. We also provide integrations with popular services like Twitter and YouTube.

Once you’re set, you publish your site, set-up a redirect and you are good to go! Your mobile site will stay in sync with your existing site.

And all of this is free.

If you opt for the premium service we add features like click-to-call and integrations with OpenTable, Google AdSense, Yelp, PayPal, and more.

Additional services include our own professional services team, Hire a Pro and marketing services with our Search Advertising experts.

For resellers we have a comprehensive package that includes training, private labeled tools, support and discounted pricing.

The more I use the platform the more it impresses me and I am looking forward to working with the team. If you want to learn more, please email me at kemp@dudamobile.com.
