4) How do we setup local or push notifications, and what is the difference? Notifications, both generated directly by apps and those sent over the web to devices, have become one of the most important gateways for users to interact with their applications. Push refers to notifications sent from a server to the device through a network. While the term local means the notifications are created by the app in the background.

Mobile Banking: I have tried two mobile banking apps, one from PNC and one from Bank of America. PNC’s website applications is nice – you can check your balance and pending transactions. You can also transfer funds between accounts. If you use online bill pay, you will be disappointed, because there is no functionality for it. Bank of America also offers the viewing of your accounts and transferring funds. It also has a section for bill pay, allowing you to see pending bills to be sent out or even send one out from your phone. With both of these apps being free, they are still worth the download. It is always good to be able to access your bank account quickly and easily from anywhere.
Nike+ GPS is the perfect app for novice or experienced runners. It uses GPS technology to track your runs. Friends can connect to your workouts to help motivate you by commenting or liking your progress. It even offers a game mode called Nike+ Tag that pits you against friends who use the app. Voice feedback lets you focus on your run instead of on your phone screen. Nike+ GPS makes running even more fun and can help get you out of bed on grey mornings when you don’t quite feel like a run.
With progress of technology always comes more trouble. It is now apparent that all technology will at some point crash. In the olden days it was more like you get a new car and then you get a flat tire. Those were the good old times, not like these days when everything appears to quit working within 24 hours of purchase. When will this craziness ever stop? Perhaps it’s a conspiracy so these businesses will make extra money when you purchase the anti-virus program. Most times it doesn’t even seem worth it, however we all do need computers in our everyday lives. We are at the inventors of technology’s benevolence.
Stump Riddles has the opportunity to earn some bonus revenue with the purchase of Boosts in their virtual store. For 60 coins, you can snap up a Reveal A Letter boost, which will show you one of the letters in your answer. For another 90 coins, you can get a Remove Letters boost, which throws out all of the letters that you won’t need to spell out your secret word. Skip This Stage is a great boost, but costs .99 in the Apple Store. I presume that this is where they make their money fastest.
If you are good with words and have quite a good vocabulary skill, you might enjoy this types of games. Again you can either find an online version, a printable one, or simply download the game app for your phone.
