Why Windows Phone Is The Safest Platform Among All?

20 Dec

windows phone

According to software security company F-Secure security Chief Mikko Hypponen, Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is the safest mobile operating system available to businesses, he further told Windows Phone 8 is presently the safest mobile operating system here.

Although Apple’s iOS is also commonly known as being safe, exactly as safe as BlackBerry for business use, while Android remains a haven for cyber criminals. It seems that F-Secure is giving the “safest” award to Windows Phone 8 at the moment.

At the moment Windows Phone is the safest, there are­­­ thousands of malware for Blackberry and more malware for the iPhone and without a doubt progressively on Android. Interestingly, Hypponen anticipated that “Windows Phone is safest mobile operating system; due to its restrictive development policy should protect it from criminals for the foreseeable future. We’ve seen no malware at all targeting the platform. You want a safe & secure phone? Purchase a Windows Phone.”

Meanwhile, Android receives a bashing for being the most unsafe; firstly, because of amount of malicious Android installation files, it’s almost just double after every quarter. Secondly, because of 3rd party app stores with much has less security features as the official one, Google Play. Although, Google is said to address some of the issues with 3rd party apps/stores in the new version of Android 4.2 taste as jelly bean.

“Windows Phone’s security model inside is somehow prohibitive, I think it’s aimed to take a while before we see Windows Phone being seriously targeted.

In case of Windows Phone 8, it is quite safe at the moment, probably because of not much people are using Windows Phone 8 device. If/when Windows Phone 8 takes off; it might be become a much bigger target for malware. But still my hunch says it will stay the safest.

The free Google Wallet for iOS serves up the same offers discovered on its Android partner.

On Tuesday, Google revealed another form of the Android application without the NFC necessity, opening the route to basically all Android devices and now the iPhone and iPad. Google Wallet asks for iOS 6.0 or higher and is improved for the more drawn out screen of the iPhone 5 and the two most recent iPhone’s.


Yesterday, Google has released Google Wallet for the iPhone. Shockingly, this is not a version 1.0 application. The App Store data really puts this at Google Wallet version 2.0.10206, which puts it near even with the Android version. Google Wallet for iPhone offers a large portion of the practicality that you might want from the new application incorporating sending and gaining cash, archiving loyalty cards, saving offers, and being notified dependent upon your location when a saved offer could be utilized adjacent.

NFC to Loyalty and Offers

Google Wallet has made a long way. Later after major upgrade to the application, it was when Google moved the sum of the information to the cloud, which uprooted the security stresses that different banks had, so all major credit cards could then be utilized. Yet, the application still needed devices with NFC chips, which led to exceptionally constrained device compatibility.

Along these lines, you can include your different loyalty cards for inns, airlines, and different organizations and have them on your phone prepared to output when you’re at the checkout. No compelling reason to convey the actual cards anymore.

Need Some More

Not surprisingly, the one function that doesn’t exist in the iPhone version is the choice to tap to pay utilizing NFC as a part of stores. Given that the iPhone still doesn’t have NFC, and might never receive the hardware, it might have been an enormous astound for Google to incorporate that.

Google_Lock new

Google says that soon the application will likewise advise you when you are close to a store for which you have a loyalty card.

User Wants Android, iOS Apps-Is It Downside For Windows Developers?

13 Sep

Windows applications developers moving into the mobile domain must handle the actuality that the platform users need are possibly Windows.


The question rotated around developer’s confidence in the Windows environment, and if not long from now has harmed Microsoft’s reputation. With the response that “The dominant part say they will at present be focusing on Windows desktop development, and that is a need for business that is not set to go anyplace soon.” But one thing that have been creeping up truly in the course of the most recent not many years is the development of Apple and Android, and seeing the diverse shape components of devices. It’s these different structure components which are pressing on to be disruptive to the industry; with laptop sales slowing, and the ascent of mobile hardware for example tablets, developers feel the requirement to underpin this new device too.

A report discharged entitled “Entering the Brave New World of Mobile Apps” underlines both the interest Windows developers are confronting for mobile software ramming and the actuality that the two platforms generally popular by their users are Google Android and Apple iOS, not Windows platforms, which rank 3rd  and 4th  in the review. The report was written by Dimensional Research and Participants incorporated 1,337 persons included in Windows desktop application development, either as engineers, developers, or improvement managers.

deve android

The review discovered that 85 percent of respondents had asks for mobile applications, which include mobile competencies for existing applications, new apps inside and out, or replacing existing mobile frameworks. Android was the most solicited platform, with 83 percent getting demands for it, accompanied by iOS (67 percent); Windows Phone (33 percent), Windows RT (13 percent), and RIM Blackberry (14 percent).

window with apple

In the mean time, 92 percent of respondents reported having worries about building mobile apps, incorporating a need for new development skills, the high expenses of creating for various platforms, and lacking tooling. Eighty-five percent said native applications are best, and 74 percent discovered HTML 5 and JavaScript-based development testing because of issues like entering device characteristics and deficient language proficiency. Ninety-five percent see worth in as a concern point source code for desktop and mobile apps. As an answer in this vein, supporting numerous mobile platforms incorporating Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS.

Something which I directly considered amazing in the research was Android is the most solicited platform to have apps for. There’s more money which gets used in Apple’s App Store; yet a great deal of getting onto the Android platform  is much simpler, there is no forthright expense, it’s actually a couple of taps and you’re an Android developer and off you go.
