The rise of mobile gaming
Mar201708

 

While there is a lot of statistical evidence to outline the importance of mobile technology, you only need to look around you to know that smartphones and tablets are part of everyday life. It often looks as though smartphones are permanently attached to people’s hands. Working, shopping, studying, socializing, and gaming are all possible online, and advances in mobile technology mean that there is great convenience in carrying out everyday tasks on a mobile-enabled device.

One area of mobile technology that is hugely important is mobile gaming. Gaming has long been a good way for people to unwind, relax, and have fun in their spare time, and mobile gaming is available no matter where a person is located. The daily commute, waiting for appointments, and even going to the toilet have been enhanced by the ability to play games.

It is the portable nature of mobile gaming that has made it so important. Games console systems are still hugely popular, and while the new Nintendo Switch console will blur the line between traditional console systems and mobile gaming, mobile gaming on smartphone devices will continue to be important.

One of the reasons that mobile gaming has risen in recent years is the breadth and quality of games on offer. No matter what interest a person has, there is likely to be a game based on that interest. There is also a great range of genres covered, so whatever style of game a person enjoys, it is available to buy. There are also many free games to choose from, so people who don’t want to pay money to enjoy gaming on the go can do so.

Casino games and gambling

For many people, mobile gaming provides an opportunity to enjoy casino or gambling-style gaming. This is a hugely popular and lucrative area of online gaming, and the level of competition pushes companies to evolve their offerings and provide a better standard of mobile gaming. There is also competition to encourage players to sign up, with bonus offers such as https://www.onlinecasino.net/mobile-casino-bonuses/ being an example of how companies appeal to mobile gamers.

Fun games

Games such as Angry Birds have become synonymous with mobile gaming, and this franchise has enjoyed more than 2 billion downloads across its series. The game has also become a brand in its own right, with merchandise and films bearing the characters’ likenesses and names. The way that games such as Angry Birds have moved out of the mobile gaming market into the general consumer market is testimony to the connection that people have with mobile gaming.

Conquest and strategy games

You may think that mobile gaming is best-suited to simple games that allow players to play in short bursts, but there have been many mobile games based on long-term strategy and developments. Anyone looking for a more in-depth gaming option will find that there are many games to choose from, with military strategy and tactical games being hugely popular among developers and consumers alike.

Mobile gaming has been one of the biggest success stories in recent years, and there is no indication that the market will fall away anytime soon.

            In todays virtual world of digitized media and press related script, it’s easy to forget that people can actually still write. The power of the printed word can still hold sway and change lives and even regimes (watch CNN and see leaflets being dropped from above in the likes of Tunisia and Libya). Social media is taking over apparently but there are still advantages of the written word.

First of all, people actually pay attention to something that is written down. You cannot just scroll it up or down, left or right, like or share. You actually have to read it! And that’s the thing, paying attention to things is becoming a lost art. Another advantage is that you can target your particular audience. If you have a product, not everybody admittedly wants that item, so selective marketing stop the fact that you are wasting valuable time effort and most importantly money on the wrong customer base.

Secondly, you are introducing specific customers to products that you know they are interested in. Psychologically, it has a personal connection because the customer feels that you are contacting them directly with something they want. And incidentally you are introducing customers to new products that they may not be aware of, so as a marketing strategy it is a win win.

One way to make sure that what you are promising to deliver what you say you are is to use a reliable delivery service, and a package only ever gets to where it needs to be if it is properly addressed and particular services offered by companies for integrated label forms are always worth investigating. They offer safe, secure and economical services to dispatch your products to anywhere you need them to be.

For sure, marketing and advertising are always going to br an integral part of your business however, delivering what you say you can deliver to your customer will either make or break your business.

Keeping Your Information Secure on the Go

Keeping your data secure while you are at home is hard enough. But when traveling, especially out of the country, it is even harder. But it is worth the extra effort because your data is worth so much to you and potentially to someone else.

VPN

virtual private network (VPN) is a third party server that is put between yourself and your target destination. There are several advantages that a VPN presents, but as with many security features, more secure can mean less convenient. When you connect with a website, you usually connect from your computer to their servers and get your content. But depending on where you are, how you are connecting to the internet and where you are trying to go this may or may not be secure.

When using a VPN you connect to the VPN before your destination and the VPN can provide different services. One of which is an encrypted signal that better protects your data in transit. While the encryption is a big plus, especially when traveling outside of your comfort zone, it can be slightly slower than a direct connection because of the increased steps. VPNs are available for both computer and mobile devices like the Galaxy Note5. One thing to remember about VPN services is that paying for one will generally get you better results since they can have more servers and support available.

Locks

An easy way to keep your data more secure is by limiting the physical access to your phone. One of the best ways is to know that your phone is within your control at all times. But unless you can guarantee this, there is still the possibility that someone could pick pocket you or you just forget it in a cab.

The most secure passwords for a phone tend to be long and random because they are harder for someone or a computer to guess. But this isn’t always a practical solution because you might forget a complicated password. However, avoiding easily gathered information like birthdays or other publicly available information will keep it more secure. A four digit PIN has a 1 in 10,000 chance of being guessed randomly and a six digit one has a 1 in 1,000,000 chance. These are short enough that they can be easily remembered even if they are random, and they give a good level of security for not a lot of effort.

Secure Wi-Fi

All the security in the world won’t help much if your connection to the internet is not secure. It is better to assume that a Wi-Fi signal is not encrypted unless it asks you for a WPA/WPA2 certification. It is also best to make sure the address you are visiting starts with “https” as opposed to “http.” The “s” stands for secure and lets you know that the traffic is being encrypted before it is sent to the server. It is also important to log out of services when you are done using them so there isn’t any way for someone else to come along and pick up where you left off.

Be careful and limit your access to sites that have sensitive information like banking or other financial services while on public or free Wi-Fi. Using https as well as a VPN can help you be as secure as possible.
