Facebook Begins 2017 as Most Popular Mobile App

2016 was all about mobile apps being used to reach out to target audiences. Online businesses made full use of mobile application development services, whether it was Android App Development or iOS App Development. They realized well in time that with the number of smartphone and iPhone users increasing by the day, it was very important to have a mobile app on such mobile devices.

With so many apps being created and used, how is it possible to distinguish the best ones from the ordinary ones? There were plenty of them in use, ranging from situational to translation to currency conversion to travel apps and also email apps. As it happens, chances are yours too would have gone unnoticed with the world unloading all of its apps on the Apple App Store and Google App Store.

Which was the app which finished Numero Uno last year? Which one begins as the most loved and widely used amongst all smartphone apps in 2017?

If Nielsen is to believe, then that honor goes to Facebook without question or doubt. It sits comfortably at the top without its position being contested. As it happens, Facebook’s mobile app averages 146 million unique users every month and is on the rise as compared to the previous year by 14%. Facebook Messenger, its country cousin, takes second place. Messenger averages around 129 million unique users each month and rose by 28% as compared to the previous year.

The social network has been rising in popularity ever since the world saw it for the first time and has been very user-friendly just like NAV, premier mid-segment ERP which can be understood fully through a Microsoft Dynamics Demo scheduled with a Microsoft Dynamics Partner in Australia.

Other apps which took the remaining 8 spots in the Top 10 include Instagram, again being something owned by Facebook. Much to the dismay of hundreds of millions, Twitter failed to make the cut. Apple Music was there, averaging 68 million average unique users every month and so was Amazon’s shopping app. Spotify, surprisingly, did not list despite having a large user base.

Ways to Make B2B E-Commerce Solution More Powerful

A couple of previous posts on the B2B E-Commerce Solution laid emphasis on how it can be made more powerful through a CRM Integration and by going in for an E-Commerce Integration with ERP.

Fact is, whether online stores use the B2B model or have a robust B2C E-Commerce Solution in place, they need to make it competitive come what may. Now this can be through a technology integration or by being resourceful. That is totally up to them.

Given below are a few tried and tested ways in which B2B online stores can be made more powerful. These methods not only help keep transaction costs down but also improve the line of service offerings and make earning profit practically possible.

1. Make your online platform simpler than before: Online platforms that are simple are the ones having the most success. Some of these online giants include the likes of Shopify, Magento and WooCommerce. Magento offers the community version and the extended Magento enterprise platform is capable of taking on any number of tasks and integrated services.

WooCommerce is successful because of its versatility and Shopify stands out for its simplicity. Besides, another way of making things simple on your online platform is by integrating shopping carts with payment processing.

2. Have more payment options: The moment your online platform is ready to handle the specified size and budget, it is time to create payment options for customers so that purchases are made frequently on your online store. Expanded and alternative payment solutions are ideal for business. Apart from credit cards, there are alternative payment methods too such as PayPal and Skrill.

3. EDI is a must: What does EDI stand for? It stands for Electronic Data Interchange. It is the process all transaction data goes through. EDI facilitates exchange of electronic documents. These can be anything ranging from purchase orders to invoicing and receipts to emails. This is a common feature in ERP solutions implemented by a Microsoft Dynamics Partner New Zealand.

4. Have a payment process in place that is fully optimized: There should be no complexities in transactions. Most customers get frustrated because of this. Whenever a customer buys a product from a business, he incurs low transaction costs. These rise all of a sudden when it comes to B2B transactions. So as far as online stores following the B2B model are concerned, there has to be a payment process in place which is fully optimized.

5. Get Rid of Fraud: There are always risks associated with electronic automation. There is always that element of fraud associated in some remote way. Take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that your online store is resistant to fraud, which happens mostly in the form of transaction laundering.

These tips will simplify your B2B modeled store and help you turn things around for the better.

Your Business Needs a Mobile Security App

What mobile operating platform are you promoting your business on? iOS? Android? What mobile device are you targeting? iPhone? Samsung Galaxy? Nexus? Both are famous across Australia and all these mobile devices mentioned above are used extensively by Australian people.

Of late, there have been complaints regarding malware affecting devices rendering them useless and unusable. This has put most businesses on alert and this being holiday season, all of a sudden there is a demand for mobile application design and development services, a robust and highly effective mobile security app to be precise.

Within no time, they feel a mobile app development service provider is as important to them as say a Microsoft Dynamics Partner Fiji doing their Microsoft ERP implementations and handling post go live support.

Now the deal is pretty simple. Either you download a free one or spend some money to get one built.


Now here is some serious talk. Mobile security apps are as important as desktop security programs. All devices connecting to the internet are vulnerable to threats. Malware is being churned out in huge volumes through inappropriate practice of software programming. This makes protecting your mobile device even more important.

A mobile security app built by a renowned Mobile App Development Company such as Dynamics Square will help you identify any such phishing scam that you may have fallen or perhaps fall victim to, if any, and will immediately alert you from entering identity-thieving websites.

Mobile devices are often the places where we tend to save some of our most sensitive information such as bank account details and social media profiles. Most of these apps are empowered with anti-theft features meant to help clients in times such as these, where it becomes mandatory that important information be guarded or else run the risk of watching it fall into wrong hands. Some also have the “uninstall protection”, which means that the app cannot be deleted without a password. Your phone will be automatically locked the moment the SIM gets replaced by the thief.

The more you keep prolonging, the more the trouble is going to increase. Contact Dynamics Square right away. Get a mobile security app developed.
