The Android Alternative to Apple Pay


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

HyprKey, the worlds most secure Bitcoin wallet, released the following statement in response to Apples release of its mobile payments technology in concert with the companys iPhone 6 and 6 Plus rollout.

Below please find comments from Hypr Corp. CEO George Avetisov:

Apples launch of payments functionality with their new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus does little for the many US Android users as well as global smartphone holders, who are overwhelmingly droid users. Given that Apple has kept its mobile commerce solution behind its usual walled garden, what would a more open Apple Pay alternative look like? asked Mr. Avetisov.

Doubtless, Googles rival to Apple would require a chip similar to Apples Secure Enclave although the droid competitor would be open to including many more payment bridges and platforms. Direct agreements with big players like American Express, MasterCard, and Visa (no Discover?) impress at launch time but consider as well the startup companies that are working at the fringes of payments innovation, he added.

Background:

Consumers already encounter point of sale equipment like QR readers and tablets at merchants that arent a priority for Apple: small and midsize businesses. A tightly closed payment solution like the one Apple just launched creates an immediate user-base challenge. Apples payments security and therefore its whole payments system stems from costly proprietary software and hardware in the hands of consumer and merchant. Droid developers might say that revolutionary innovation is seldom self-limiting. Others might simply ask, Why such as high barrier to entry?

A droid-based competitor to Apple Pay would also require multifactor authentication and adoption of the latest in payments technology in the run-up to the demise of credit card magnetic swiping. Envision, then, a droid NFC app with secure identity management, with a user base accessing endless integrations made possible by Android.

A droid response to Apple Pay has another key advantage, and one that cant be ignored. Most of the mCommerce payment apps arms race would occur outside of the US where the Android OS dominates.

HyprKey, the droid alternative to the problematic Apple Pay, provides the impenetrable security of off-device authentication and the simplicity of seamless integration with Bitcoin, credit cards, and third-party payment systems.

Rokit Boost Promotes iPad Bluetooth Keyboards for More Efficient Student Learning in Tablet-Using Classrooms


New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

Just in the time for the beginning phase of the school year, Rokit Boost is helping enhance student learning with its line of Bluetooth keyboards. Increasing numbers of schools are adopting tablets for student use in the classroom, and as a result, consumer demand for a solution that enables quick and easy typing on these tablets is growing.

In a recently-published Washington Post article by Michael Alison Chandler and Hayley Tsukayama, education industry experts say the number of schools purchasing tablets is increasing. United States schools are expected to purchase some 3.5 million tablets by the end of 2014. The National Center for Education Statistics also reports that 1.5 million iPads are used in education settings now and that this number is growing.

Enhancing Student Learning and Classroom Performance

At a time when student use of iPads is increasing, Rokit Boosts functional, easy-to-use wireless keyboards make student learning easier and more efficient. Many students find typing on an iPad itself difficult, especially when they are taking notes or performing other important tasks in class. With their intuitive, user-friendly design, these iPad Bluetooth keyboards enable faster and simpler information input on the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Air 3, and iPad Air 4. Now text and information input on the iPad does not have to be as much of a hassle.

Both wireless keyboards are ultra-thin and lightweight for easy portability. They meet contemporary standards for aesthetics with their bead-blasted, anodized finish that matches all iPad Air models. Both of the keyboards function as wireless keyboards, iPad covers, and stands. They also both provide good-feeling, quiet keystrokes and come with superior-grade protection with their rustproof and waterproof properties.

New “Fetch My Contacts” App is a Must-Have for Every Phone

Tuscaloosa, AL (PRWEB) September 08, 2014

For everyone whose memory is less than that of Dustin Hoffman’s character in the movie “Rainman,” remembering more than a handful of phone numbers is next to impossible. To solve this problem, a new app has been developed that is sure to be a lifesaver in more ways than one.

The app, Fetch My Contacts, permanently stores all of a user’s contacts so that they can be easily downloaded to a new phone with the click of a button. This will lead to a lot less of those group e-mails and Facebook posts from people who lost their phones and are desperately seeking everyone’s phone numbers. Of course, even if someone did have a perfect photographic memory, this app would easily pay for itself by saving them the eight hours it would take to manually enter all of those contacts into a new phone.

And unlike all of the “clouds” that nobody can understand how to use, this information is not shared with anyone else. Nobody else can mistakenly access the user’s contacts or accidentally delete them. More importantly, the data can be downloaded to and from any make or model phone. This means that users with Fetch My Contacts can switch from a Droid to an iPhone, or vice versa, and instantly have all of their old contacts on their new phone.

But none of these valuable features are why Fetch My Contacts was developed in the first place, according to the two University of Alabama students who created http://www.FetchMyContacts.com.

“My phone battery was always dying, so I never had any way to call someone to come pick me up or to tell them where to meet me,” said co-founder Tyler Chambers. “We realized that there was a serious need for a solution to this problem because so many students rely on their phones to call others for rides home — especially late at night — and that’s precisely when most phone batteries have given out. No parent wants their son or daughter stranded at a concert or on spring break with no way of contacting anyone to help them, so we want parents to see Fetch My Contacts as the modern day ‘buddy system’ for their children.”

Co-founder Halley Lewis recited a long list of instances in his past when Fetch My Contacts would be have been worth its weight in gold and saved him from long walks home or missed opportunities. “The worst thing about it,” said Lewis, “was that I knew having a phone book or calling 411 was useless. The only way to get the numbers for my friends’ cell phones was from my contacts. I couldn’t even remember my own sister’s number off the top of my head, so that’s when I realized that we had to come up with some way to fix this problem.”

At less than a penny a day, Fetch My Contacts offers a combination of insurance, convenience and safety that makes it a must-have for every cell phone user. The app is available for both Android and iPhone users, and can be easily downloaded from http://www.FetchMyContacts.com.







BIS Computer Solutions Introduces a New Basic Version of Its Popular Pet Cremation Software Starting at Only $200 per Month with No Start-up Fees

La Crescenta, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2014

At the recent Pet Loss Professional Alliance (PLPA) college in New Orleans BIS Computer Solutions, Inc announced the release of the all new Pet Cremation System (PCS) Basic for the Pet aftercare industry. At the upcoming International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories (IAOPCC) conference in Las Vegas the application will be demonstrated. The PCS Basic solution is for those cremators who are new to the industry and are just starting out or for those who want to try the PCS solution. Michael Macho, Division President, states The best way for a small and growing business to increase profits and market share is this application. BIS PCS software was first presented to the industry about 10 years ago and it allows the crematories and veterinarians the ability to collaborate by using technology to track the complete cremation process.

The PCS Basic package is what the Computer Industry refers to as a SaaS model, which is a web based application solution, with no upfront installation and training costs. The key features include:

Chain of Custody- Tracks the pet though each of the various processes and stages from the time the pet is picked up until the time it is returned back to the crematory.

Vet Clinic Website- Allows veterinarians to schedule pick-ups, print a vet tag and track the process of the pets cremation.

Smartphone Tracking- Since the drivers enter the pickups and urn deliveries, this module allows veterinarians to track the times of pick-ups and drop-offs and allows families to follow the chain of custody of their pet.

Inventory and Tracking Reports- Allows users to print Inventory Stock Status reports as well as reports that show pick-ups and drop-offs that veterinarians can follow.

The software can be acquired starting at $ 200 per month with the ability to add on other features at any time. Additional features include the driver hand held application, which is compatible with both iPhone and Android smartphones. Using these everyday smartphones saves money and is more efficient to just use the one device for phone calls, maps and pet tracking and record keeping.

BIS first introduced the Vet Clinic Web Portal to the Pet After-Care industry over 10 years ago says Macho we have since worked very closely with our existing customers to redefine the industry standards and processes and have listened to what they wanted in a solution.

Registration is immediate and easy. Users will just have to go to http://www.biscomputer.com and click on the link or simply click on https://bisapps.biscomputer.com/apex/f?p=pcsregister.

A quick and easy setup allows you to enter your vets, services, special services, urn and other memorabilia. The system automatically emails access information to your vets so that they can start entering their orders right from the start. Flexibility in customization of your website allows you to identify which data elements you require of the vet and even provides marketing banners along with your own logo. The PCS Basic version comes standard with the ability to customize your reports to suit your needs.

After a few weeks of testing Rob Mayer, owner of Delaware Pet Cremation, says I love the simplicity of installing the application on the vets computers and the ease of training staff. He went on to say that the app is very practical and saves time and errors by using the app over messy handwriting.

ABOUT BIS: Based in La Crescenta, a Los Angeles suburb, BIS Computer Solutions (http://www.biscomputer.com) has been creating customized software programs, applications and consulting to a variety of industries for over 40 years. A large emphasis of its operations is placed on security and infrastructure solutions, and protecting data.

Artist Become (ArtistBe.com), the revolutionary online community for creating, selling and buying artworks online, today announced the completion of its transfer to Amazon Web Services, a powerful elastic instance that will allow the platform to grow and adjust to the exponential growth of the site.

ArtistBe.com is an online platform providing tools and resources to enable emerging and established artists to showcase and sell their artwork. The online community focuses solely on original art and its growing amount of artist members. ArtistBe.com was created by overstockArt.com, the go-to source on the web for purchasing art reproduction oil paintings.

Recently, due to the amazing serge in traffic and new art added, the server powering the artist community had to be upgraded significantly to improve the site performance for both artists and art lovers. Amazon Web Services was a natural choice due to the scalability of the hardware.

With this recent move to a powerful and scalable server, ArtistBe.com is set to accommodate the ever-expanding amount of member artists and art lovers that are taking part in this unique artist community, stated David Sasson, overstockArt.coms president and CEO.

ArtistBe.com provides a unique means for emerging artist to be discovered, and to assist established professionals in finding new clients without relying on agents. There is no cost to join and members can sell their art without commission fees. Artists receive royalties for every canvas reproduction sold.

Timely Tutor Launches Fun, Educational App for Kids

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Timely Tutor, a fun and educational application for kids, has announced the immediate availability of the app in the Apple App Store. Timely Tutor, incorporating national standards in education, interrupts play-time via a timer quizzing the designated user with a certain number of questions from assigned modules such as spelling, math, geography, etc. Should the child not receive a passing percentage as dictated by the parent, the app requires the user to retake the test before the timer resets allowing the user to go back to “play time.”

Our society is ruled by technology, said John Pashales, founder of Timely Tutor. Children are using these technologies; iPhones, iPads, iPods, etc, for consumption more than learning. It has become a digital pacifier rather than a digital tool and my hope is that Timely Tutor can help create change.

Timely Tutor allows parents to reinforce what is learned at school while at home. Best of all, the parent or teacher can assign different modules for each child based on grade or skill level and can also assign certain modules by a subject on which they may need to practice.

The app is completely customizable for each specific user, Pashales said. As a parent myself, I find this important because it doesn’t limit the usability based on knowledge or skill level. It allows the parent to designate what their child works on and ensures them that it matches their childs ability. They can’t use the ‘I don’t know’ excuse.

Different from other recently launched timing services for other tablets which just limit usage, Timely Tutor incorporates fun into learning with bright, friendly characters that make the time spent learning enjoyable to the child while allowing parents to limit screen time spent on video games and online videos. Timely Tutor also works with select teachers and schools to build modules specific to what they are teaching in class, which makes the app truly customizable to each child.

ABOUT TIMELY TUTOR

Timely Tutor is a fun, educational application founded by a father of five with a desire to provide educational tools to children to maximize the use of their electronic devices. Complete with a module market to cater to grades K through 6, Timely Tutor offers a variety of subjects to reinforce lessons learned in school at home.
