Near Field Communication (NFC) is a wireless technology that enables the exchange of data between devices , and allows a user to wave their Smartphone or tablet over an NFC tag to collect information in a convenient way.
It has a short range of about 1.5 inches compared to many other wireless technologies, which makes it a good choice for secure transactions, such as contact-less credit card payments.NFC technology is actually embedded in a chip which can be installed in your smartphone , tablet or your palmtop. It works on the principle of Magnetic induction: a reader emits a small electric current, which creates a magnetic field that in turn bridges the physical space between the devices. That field is received by a similar coil in the client device.It Operates at 13.56 MHz and transfers data at up to 424 Kbits/second. The potential for NFC is huge. It is more advanced than technologies like RFID with two-way communication capabilities, interactive approvals and the ability to enable payments through mobile applications. NFC is designed for Short distance wireless communication. It allows intuitive initialization of Wireless network and also it is complementary to Bluetooth and 802.11 with their long distance capabilities. Smartphone’s can take advantage of several NFC application designed for everything from reading NFC tags to swapping business cards with another NFC compatible device. This technology is promising because it presents the next evolution of convenient payment with an added layer of security. This technology will make upcoming smartphones powerful. Besides payment transactions, the technology is also suitable for:
Near Field Communication (NFC) is best known as the technology used for many mobile payment solutions. It is one of the trend creating numerous avenues for connecting and enriching customer relationships.
Augmented Reality (AR) is an exciting new frontier in the world of app development and mobile solutions.It has been showing lot of promise as an enabling technology in the mobility space.AR is cutting-edge technology that allows for a digitally enhanced view of the real world . It tries to “enhance” our real world experience by making inanimate objects more interactive. It provides a live view of a physical, real-world environment whose are augmented by computer-generated input such as information, sound, video, graphics, or GPS data.
AR is a new content delivery and engagement technology which gets more and more applications every day. It basically uses digital illusions, either visual or any other form, that relate to the real world scenario.
AR system is the combination of real scene viewed by user and virtual scene generated by computer.It provides more information about our immediate surroundings.
Apple has finally placed a deadline on its rejection of apps that use UDIDs. As of 1st May 2013, Apple will no longer accept new apps that use the Universal Device Identifier (UDID). In addition, all apps must be compatible with Apple’s Retina displays and iPhone apps must support the iPhone 5 which has 4? retina display, or they’re no go.
The ban on apps that don’t support the iPhone 5?s display is an interesting one, as there are still many apps out there on the store that are stuck at the old device resolution of the iPhone 4/4S. For whatever reason, Apple has had a hard time convincing some developers to update their apps to support the iPhone 5?s display. While most marquee apps have been updated, there are still a few on my device that are not updated. Now, if they want to fix any bugs or add any new features, they’ll also have to be iPhone 5-ready.
The new screen size requirements also mean that iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G will slowly start to fade from the picture as new apps cease to support them. It means, any new updates to apps or new apps will no longer be able to support iOS 4.2 devices, as they’ll have to be built against the iOS 6 SDK, which contains features incompatible with older versions of Apple’s software (outside of some hacky methods).
What is required to convert your non-iPhone5 apps to iPhone5 Compatible?
It does not required any change in terms of the Functionality (models). It requires all the UI Views (View level) and Graphics to be redone to retina standards.
Would you like to upgrade your Apps to Retina display and iPhone5?

The number of electronic transactions or digital transactions is growing day by day, as people started reducing pen and paper incrementally. As the digital transactions are growing more, there is a constant demand for fast and accurate user identification & authentication. Face recognition is emerging as a greatest solution to bridge this gap in recent days.
Face recognition technology is the least intrusive and quickest biometric technology. It works with the foremost obvious individual identifier – the human face.
You open your laptop lid and instantaneously the software system recognizes you and logs you in. Or, even as you enter your workplace, the camera over the door takes a look at you and opens the door after seeing you as an employee .
How does a system perform these tasks? General face recognition software conduct a comparison of parameters like distances between eyes, nose, mouth, and jaw edge to the image in its database. Depending upon the matches found, it determines the result. This technique is known as feature based matching and it is the most basic method of facial recognition.
Simply- capturing, extracting, comparing, and matching.Smart Phones with Face Recognition:- Face recognition technology is becoming increasingly popular in consumer electronics and could soon be featured on many mobile devices. Smartphone uses face recognition for providing the security for people’s devices. Apple has been given a patent for a system that would use facial detection and or other devices. Google also decided allowing a face recognition app for Google Glass. The real world is about to become a much more connected place, utilizing some of the most accurate facial recognition software in the world. Some of the best face recognition based apps are - Recognize Me, FaceLock, FaceVault and for facebook there is an app called Klik to identify faces on Facebook. Face recognition scenarios:-
Face Recognition is an Upcoming trend and it is being estimated that this technology will be the backbone of all major security.
Skeuomorphism and flat design are two very different ways of representing the interactions and functions of a computer, mobile, tablet or website. Skeuomorphism seeks to replicate real-world items directly into its design. This style makes use of drop shadows, bevels, gradients and textures. Flat design rejects nearly all of these attributes, By discarding unnecessary styling, it makes for speedier pages, cleaner code, and easy adaptability and takes on a much more minimalist approach.Flat Design : The new vogue in Apps & Web Design! Flat is not a major innovation in design that will change the way we look at graphics and user interfaces forever. It is simply a trend. Flat Design is Built on the Goals of Skeuomorphism and Minimalism. Apple’s new iOS 7 Flat design places functionality over style as the cornerstone of its design. Flat design is probably the biggest trend in web and user interface design this year. The latest popularity is made by Apple and new Google design, which strides even deeper into minimalism. Flat designs look great when made within the restraints of minimalism, they can also handle a lot more complexity; these designs have a crispness and clarity that can only be achieved by stripping away three dimensional effects. In its essence, flat design has two objectives: 1. Accepting the limits of the screen and working within those parameters rather than trying to disguise them. 2. Using this new found simplicity as a starting point for streamlining designs, and making websites faster and more functional. Google, Apple and Microsoft follows Flat Design Trend now.

What is Responsive Design?
Krify website as seen in iPhone4S, Safari
Let’s just get right into it: Believe it or not, the Krify corporate website & blog that you’re reading this article on is actually a Responsive design! To see it in action, open this article on a desktop browser and slowly make the browser thinner and wider. You should see the layout magically adjust itself to more comfortably fit the new width of the browser, even if you make the page as skinny as the resolution of a mobile phone.
Responsive web design is not a single piece of technology, but rather, a collection of techniques and ideas.
(i) Fluid Grids: The first key idea behind responsive design is the usage of what’s known as a fluid grids. Fluid grids go a few steps beyond the traditional liquid layout. Instead of designing a layout based on rigid pixels or arbitrary percentage values, a fluid grid is more carefully designed in terms of proportions. This way, when a layout is squeezed onto a tiny mobile device or stretched across a huge screen, all of the elements in the layout will resize their widths in relation to one another.

Once upon a time, the role of the teacher in the classroom conjured up images and ideas of blackboards, rulers, chalk, and pencils. Today, technology is becoming more and more integrated into modern school systems—not just as an added bonus, but as a necessity to how students learn and how teachers teach. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. From smartboards to class computers to e-readers and e-textbooks, each new technology presents new models of both teaching and learning opportunities.
Now, everyday teachers with Tech access are finding new ways to embrace technology and incorporate it into the classroom. As a result, teachers are more efficient than ever, and students are capable of learning faster and more efficiently.
In fact, a majority of students say that technology has helped them to achieve their academic goals, while a majority of teachers say they would like to use even more technology in the classroom.Teachers are using more & more Technology. Does this help ?
65% teachers say technology lets them demonstrate things they could not show another way. Three in every four teachers are saying that tablets, apps are (i) allowing them to reinforce and expand on content (ii) help motivate people (iii) accommodates multiple learning styles.
Even technology is used to teach outside the classroom. This helped students to watch video lectures while they are in home through interactive apps and mobile mediums.
So it is not surprising that three in every four students say technology helps them achieve their academic goals. Infact, two in three teachers want even more technology in their class rooms.
