BB-8

Sometimes you need to have a bit luck to achieve a success. We can speak about such luck in case of Sphero. A company that is known from production of small robot toys that you are able to control by mobile phone. But before September 8th 2015 probably only technology geeks knew this company. And it was also hard to say that this company achieved success – they managed to sold about 500 000 robots in 4 years. Such kind of luck for Sphero was new episode of Star Wars. In new episode a new robot BB-8 has been introduced. And [...]

Change location of Users and ProgramData folders to other drive

Sometime ago I decided to buy and install SSD drive in my PC. At that time I thought that 120 GB will be enough for me. Of course I was thinking about bigger drive but main purpose of this upgrade was to speed us OS and application start and run. All data and documents should be hold on other drives. That was a plan that worked for longer time. But…. Last week new Visual Studio and new Windows 10 were presented. In that time on my SDD drive there was only 2 GB free space. I tried to clean a [...]

There is still far way to mobile revolution

Polish society is using more often new technologies. Tablets and smartphones are not luxury devices any more. Those kinds of devices try to start revolution in our houses. In particular, we can see an example of such revolution in new start-ups. Many new start-up aims to create a new mobile product. Unfortunately not always everything goes as it is planned. New start-ups try to help us with daily’s duties, e.g. to order taxi, food, tickets, …. In such scenarios the most important thing is a reliable business partner. But not only. […]

DVLUP vs. CodeGuru.pl competition

From the early beginning Microsoft is trying to attract developers to create applications on devices with Windows Phone and Windows 8 operating system. In Poland Microsoft organised trainings regarding those platforms, sold a bit cheaper devices for developers and organised few competitions together with CodeGuru.pl. I have managed to won my first Windows Phone device and XBox in one of that competitions. But from my point something has been missed if I compare Poland to other countries. For example in USA, Canada or Australia developer need to write only 2 applications and can get free device from Microsoft. Sometimes he [...]

Selling applications at Polish Windows Store

Every time when somebody asks me if it is possible to earn money by selling application on [mark]Windows Store[/mark] that are targeted on Polish users, I say that in most cases you are unable to do this. Polish people have quite specific attitude for buying mobile applications and their evaluations. Ideally, the app should be free and without ads. […]

The first impression…

Nothing sets customers or users attitude on our product as the first impression. It can be achieved in various ways, but it is done mostly by advertising. Those ads show us why we need this unique product. Such well settled positive attitude should be sustained in daily usage of product. During those path there are two more stops: purchase – sometimes this stage is ignored, especially when purchase is made by web, unboxing. In both cases I think Apple should be identified as the leader. This can be seen when we enter to the iStore. From the beginning we can [...]

Budget – What? So small?

Last time I cleaned up my PC I have found a photo from WUD Kraków conference. It shows attitude to budget presented by interactive agency and ordering company. Quite often in Poland we can see the practise that customers are not reviling information about project budget. Customers are afraid of the situation that interactive agency will provide calculation which will use the entire budget. On the opposite side is interactive agency. The company which is full of creative people who want to provide the best and the most innovative solution for customers. The solution which is remarkable and definitely will [...]

My first million…

Some time ago, I have announced that in next year 1.2 billion new smartphones will be sold on the market. This huge number can lure many developers to mobile market. I suggest that you should avoid Poland store if you want to create paid applications. According to researches provided by Xyologic, statistical Pole is not willing to buy application on mobile devices. Let’s look at September. In this month Poles downloaded 32.33 millions of apps for Android and 3.54 for iPhone. I encourage you to try guess what is the number of downloaded paid applications. […]
