Buy Your Business Apps In Bulk From Apple

Apple is launching a new volume app purchasing plan to businesses. The new program is dubbed App Store Volume Purchasing and gives businesses a way to buy mobile applications by 3rd party vendors in volume, through a corporate account.

Now, Apple wants to be clear that the future App Store is not a ‘real app store’ but more like a private website, offering corporations ways to cut back on spending without compromising productivity tools necessary for organizational growth.

Turn Your Android Phone Into A 64GB iPod

Samsung has just released 32GB microSD cards. These are the same microSD cards that fit into your cell phones, and provide you with an extra 32GB of memory on top of any on board memory you have, or any SD card that is currently installed.

The tiny chips write at 12Mbps and read at 24Mbps which represents read and write speeds 2x faster than traditional Class 4 microSD cards. If you’ve got an Android device, just get an MP3 player app from the app store, load up some awesome tunes onto your device and enjoy!

Thinking Med School? Let This App Get You There

Microsoft App Store Confirmed W/ Photo

There were rumors circulating around just a little while ago saying that Microsoft was working on its own App store. Well, today we finally have some solid proof towards that rumor. After a code check was performed by Windows8Italia, as well as the thumbnail shown, it looks like Microsoft is designing an App store that looks very similar to the current Mac App store. The Windows App Store will have ratings, reviews, and developer feedback.

Let Your Phone Determine Which TV You Should Get!

When it comes to placing anything in your home, people often find it cumbersome to get out the measuring tape and often times having to ask a friend to help measure. Why can’t there be an easier solution? Well it looks like Panasonic has figured one out, at least when it comes to finding the right size television set for your home.

With Panasonic’s VIERA AR Setup Simulator, users simply use their cell phone to place the AR marker on the spot where they want the TV to be and then look at it through the iPhone’s camera.

United States Army Launches Own App Store

Less than a week after announcing Android as a test phone, the US Army has just announced that they will launch a service called Army Marketplace, that will be fully operational in August of this year. The store is currently a restricted website but the army is working a storefront app for smartphones.

The Army Marketplace currently hosts 17 Android Apps and 16 iPhone Apps, and we can’t wait till they hit their 100th app mark. Soldiers can even put in requests for apps they’d like (uh oh) in hopes that their wishes get put into production.

3D Face Scanning App- Costs Less Than A Dollar

A new application has been developed for the iPhone that is essentially a 3D scanner app. The app is called Trimensional and takes four photos of your face using different lighting effects. The app then combines the four photos to create a 3D model. Once the model has captured the images, users can then enjoy a printed version of the scan using a 3D printer. Users should opt to take the images in a very dark room for the best results and set the iPhone’s screen brightness to maximum.

The 3D scanning application works for both the 4th Generation iPod Touch and the iPhone 4. You can purchase the app for just 99 cents, an affordable solution to the sometimes pricey cost of 3D scanners.

AVG Claims Android Is #1 Target For Malware

AVG has recently published it’s Community Powered Threat Report for Q1, 2011 and has determined increased risk towards Android users. The reason the Android operating system is more at risk than other mobile operating systems is due in part to the open-source aspect of the OS. Compared to Apple’s iOS, Android users can install software outside of the Android Market store, which makes it a prime target to infect.

AVG claims in it’s report that its Mobilation for Android software has helped prevent users from downloading over 10,000 infected apps, each day. The company noted also an increase in spam and phishing attacks aimed at smartphone users, in particular, Android users.

Angry Birds Magic Adopts NFC Technology

If there weren’t enough versions of Angry Birds yet, brace yourself, Angry Birds Magic is coming soon! Angry Bird makers, Rovio are teaming up with Nokia to bring NFC (near-field communications) technology to Angry Birds. Don’t get too excited just yet, this won’t be a multi-player version of Angry Birds. Users will instead tap their Nokia phones with one another to unlock new levels in their Angry Birds games, and I assume will attempt to clear each level while the two friends will have some level of “bonding”, if you can call it that!

The App Store Modifies It’s Ranking System

Apple has modified it’s ranking system for how applications are judged, based on criteria such as number of downloads. Some of the most popular apps include Facebook, Skype, and Pandora. Facebook moved from the 13th spot to the first, Skype jumped from 33rd to 11th, and Pandora went from the 22nd slot to the top ten. These applications were previously steady in their rankings, which leads many to assume that Apple has changed their ranking system.
