Why The iOS 8 Scrolling Results Will Change The Way You Make Your App Screenshots

About the Author: Evaldo Rossi is the Founder of WordData – App Store Optimization (ASO). Follow him on Google+ and check out the WordData blog to learn more about ASO.

One of the updates iOS 8 brought to the App Store is the Scrolling Results. This was made to tackle two issues: user experience and app discovery. The new search results pages are easier and faster to navigate, so more apps will be seen in the same search before the user gives up.

The new layout brought an unintended feature to improve the conversion rate (i.e., the percentage of users that click the app after discovering it) on the iPhone.

5 Ways To Earn More Revenue From Your Mobile App

The current mobile market is anything but stable, and there is no one to blame. Mobile is a new technology for many, and the bigger part of the world hasn’t even bothered to get involved, just yet! Apple (iOS) and Google (Android) are battling their ways as the two leading mobile operating systems, as well as mobile app markets, and as we can see in the recent report; Apple is showing healthy signs of growth.

Even Microsoft has realized that competing with these two giants is not going to be easy, and has in turn started to offer additional edit features for its Office suite to its mobile users. Before the changes, all you could really do was view your files, and do hardly any editing. (Though, this is the free version we’re talking about!) Microsoft realized that there are far too many alternatives out there, and losing money is not an option. Though, not making the app available to Windows Phone users first was probably not a bright idea!

A Sweet Perspective On Swift

A few days ago, a friend of mine (maybe the nerdier one) asked me: “What do you think about Swift?”. I answered “It’s really cool!”.

Surely I would recommend it to develop your next awesome app or game on iOS.

It’s a major departure from the syntax of Objective-C, Swift language is much more concise.

If you have a background in any C-based language (other than Objective-C), you will be able to read it. Swift has many language constructs popularized in other languages, it is pretty close to what is hot in programming languages today.

The Firm – A Stock Trading Simulator App for Would-be Stock Traders

We all hear a lot about how stock trading is both exciting and rewarding, but very few of us actually know how the whole system works. Well, The Firm is here to offer us an answer. Like other similar iOS games of a similar sort, The Firm helps players experience what it’s like to be a stock trader by providing them a repetitive and pixel art infused gameplay that is designed to simulate the life of the average stock trader.

Like other famous PC games, such as “Papers, Please”, The Firm is all about money management. Its core mechanics basically involve trading stocks as well as buying or selling various types of commodities. When a player goes into a buy mode, their main goal is to buy stocks that have dropping values, but at the same time, they have the potential to rise and increase later on. On the other hand, when the player switches to sell mode, their goal is to sell their stocks while their prices are still high but also hold to low value stocks with the hope that they will increase later on.
