Scrolling Magazine Pages Saliva Free

Popular digital magazine titles are all available on one Android and iPad appMagazine publishers have now made it easier for consumers to purchase the digital versions of their favorite publications designed for both Android and iPad tablets with the launch of the unlimited newsstand. The new service allows readers to get access to a variety of titles through a single subscription on the "Unlimited" Android app, including Better Homes and Gardens, Fortune, Glamour, The New Yorker, Esquire and many more. The app provides a common interface for all titles, with interactive features like “carousel” scrolling to get a quick view of what’s in a particular issue, as well as online video, exclusive photos, and links to other information online. Rainmakers can still rely on insightful metrics about digital titles, as the the Magazine Publisher's Association has asked digital publishers to report things like total number of tablet readers per issue, total number of sessions per issue, total time spent per reader per issue and the average number of sessions per reader per issue.

Lights, Camera, Action - Live from Your SmartPhone!

While most of the hype at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has been about the new tablet products set to capitalize on the iPad's success, The Digital Raindance believes it's the new, breakthrough features in smartphones that continue to enhance the sharing, uploading of original content. Today's smartphone features give users the opportunity to become instant producers, programmers and broadcasters. Dual-core smartphones have been touted for years, but now we finally get a glimpse of that future with LG’s launch of the Optimus 2X. The Optimus 2X is the world’s first smartphone with a dual-core processor featuring a 4-inch WVGA screen, 8 GB of memory (expandable up to 32 GB via microSD memory cards) an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p high definition recording capabilities (Apple iPhone has 720p) and a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video calls. Its most impressive spec is that it supports HDMI mirroring, which lets users display the videos, photos they've just taken to an external monitor or flat-screen TV in full HD quality. With an HDMI cable connected from the LG Optimus 2X to an external display, users can, for example, stream their favorite NetFlix movies or Hulu programs from their Internet-based phones onto a hotel TV set, if they're travelling. They can also project favorite online and offline gaming apps in HD quality. Oh and did I mention that their Skype conversations can magically feature their friends and family on the "small screen" too! Running on the Android operating system, the LG Optimus 2X "wonder phones" will be available to US consumers this Spring.

The Smartphone Race Track

Smartphone history was made this week when Apple (iPhones) pushed ahead of Research In Motion (Blackberry models) to lay claim to the second largest maker worldwide, behind NokiaApple doubled smartphone shipments to 14 million from the year-earlier period, thanks largely to the release of the iPhone 4. The Smartphone race is being closely watched by marketers, as mobile marketing continues to grow rapidly. Of course, while app developers create programs for every mobile platform, it's those platforms with the largest market that get the most attention. So keeping tabs on who's on first and in the lead is crucial for Rainmakers.
Enter Android. While Apple has surpassed RIM, Android's growth rate has shot past both Apple iOS and BlackBerry. Android was installed on 44 percent of phones sold in the third quarter of this year, well ahead of its two main rivals.Apple's answer is it will counter with the debut of the Verizon iPhone early next year, eagerly looking to slow Android's explosive growth. And the Smartphone race goes on.

It's All About Entertainment At Myspace

Myspace has a brand new look and user experience that goes beyond just the building of a social network of friends. With a new brand, Myspace has rolled out a beta website that offers Gen Y users (16-25) a rich, highly-personalized entertainment experience focused on music, celebrities, movies, television, and games available through multiple platforms, including online, mobile devices and offline events. Of course, one of the most exciting features of the new Myspace is that Gen Y users will be able to connect, share with others who have similar entertainment interests. With entertainment as one of the known cultural points to effectively reach Hispanic consumers, the redesign is expected to be particularly attractive to the fast-growing bicultural young Hispanic market segment who make up 18 percent of the U.S. Gen Y population. Hispanic youth are not only the country’s fastest-growing market segment, but are also early adopters to social media and characterized as being trend setters and technology savvy.
