Facebook hosted its first earnings conference call last month with Mark Zuckerberg highlighting the social network’s vision and strategy in moving forward. Facebook was quick to admit that it was not doing so well in terms of advertising, prompting the team to work on new ways to generate more revenue from mobile ads. Today, the developers at Facebook are introducing a new mobile ad system for applications. Facebook’s Vijaye Raji said that the new system aims to boost app downloads while helping developers grow their business with an ad unit that helps them reach and reengage their users.
Talking about the initial success it has done so far, Raji added that during the past 30 days, they were able direct people to the Apple App Store and Google Play 146 million times via clicks from channels such as news feed, timeline, bookmarks and App Center.”Mobile ads are an additional way to drive people to apps. When a person clicks on one of these ads, if they do not have the app installed they will be sent to the App Store or Google Play to get it.” he said. Facebook is conducting the tests together with a few sets of beta partners. To learn more about how it works, you can visit Facebook’s developer blog.By Ubergizmo.

Ah, progress in the world of software more often than not comes in the form of an update or a newer version number. The same can be said for Evernote for iOS, as this particular app has served many well in the past, but that does not mean there is no longer any more room for further improvement, don’t you think so? That’s what we thought, too, where Evernote for iOS has just received its latest update that weighs in at 13.4MB, allowing you to tap just about anywhere on the document itself to perform an edit right there and then, without having to go through more than one step to edit a particular document.
Basically, the new and updated Evernote for iOS will no longer be as inefficient as the old, where tapping tapping anywhere in an entry will see the editing tool appear right at the spot where you tapped earlier. It does not sound like much, but it sure as heck would make this particular app far more fun and efficient to use. Have you given the latest version of Evernote for iOS a go yet, and how did you fare with it?By Ubergizmo.

They say that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and I truly believe that after more than three decades of walking this earth, this particular saying holds true, straight to the point like an arrow. Well, there is no one truly invincible mobile operating system out there in the market, although you can say that iOS is certainly one of the more popular ones out there. The thing is, there are other mobile operating systems apart from iOS if you were to keep your eyes peeled – Android being one, with Windows Phone being an up and coming candidate. Windows Phone 8 might be the future, offering a fluid user experience, and it certainly does away with its Achilles Heel – that is, the inability to transfer a file over a Bluetooth connection.
This was made known through a publication of Windows Phone 8′s Bluetooth profile which has appeared online, where it comes with all the relevant bits and pieces required to perform a wireless file transfer. For Windows Phone 7 users, there are always third-party apps for you to choose from to get jiggy with Bluetooth file transfer.By Ubergizmo.

Apple and Samsung are letting it all out for the trial of the century. It seems that Apple is gaining the upper hand as it once again presented another compelling internal document from Samsung comparing the Galaxy S with its iPhone. Apparently Apple managed to grab the entire 132-page document from Samsung’s product engineering team that has been translated from Korean. The report, made way back in 2010, reveals how Samsung evaluated its Galaxy S smartphone by using the iPhone as a reference.
As you can see in the slide above, you’ll notice the comparison of the two devices in terms of basic function, browsing, connectivity, messaging, multimedia, and visual interaction effect. In each category, Samsung detailed how its Galaxy S1 could improve more and what Samsung could do going forward. AllThingsD noted that in most cases, Samsung wanted its then-flagship smartphone to work more like the iPhone, thereby strengthening Apple’s previous allegation that the South Korean tech giant ?slavishly copied? the iPhone. But the real case here will be to prove that Samsung did not only measured its success with the iPhone, but that it actually infringed any of Apple’s patents.By Ubergizmo.
