China Is Overtaking The USA In Mobile App Usage

Mobile applications are becoming more and more popular and some of the countries have made a great progress in using them on different devices. China which ranked only 10th last year managed to jump up to the second place having only the USA in front of them. According to the Flurry report China has become the leading country in a new smart device adoption due to its enormous population and rapidly emerging middle class. The top ten countries which greatly grew in terms of app sessions last year are in the picture. A user runs an app on his device and uses it for some time before shutting it down is one session count.

In January 2011, the USA accounted for 28% of the world’s total iOS and Android device activations, while China accounted for 8%.  In February, Flurry calculated that China surpassed the United States in monthly new iOS and Android device activations for the first time in history. It is expected that Chine will account even more percents in the next following months and will become the world’s fastest growing smart device market.

USA currently has more than twice as many active devices than China.  However, China, a quicker growing, emerging market, already has twice as large an installed base as the next largest market, the UK.

Snappii Has Released Location Form Input and Web Post Mode

Making apps is becoming easier and the new features released on Snappii will encourage you to create even more functional apps. Previously with the help of Form tabs/buttons everyone could make application forms using the following fields: text, figures, date/time, multichoice and the one allowing to upload photos for submitting them. Now one more enhancement is available - a location input. Due to it it is really convenient to select your location and send it out via form with other data. Clicking on "Select location" will show up your current location and it can be modified in the settings, just add your new location and press "Submit" to submit your location. This feature can be especially useful for taxi apps. People who want to get a taxi can simply select their location and submit it to let a taxi driver know where to pick them up from. Getting a taxi is just several clicks away. It concerns all kinds of transportation. As well the location input is a great way to show on a map and report car accidents, traffic jams, road holes,any occasions happened near you.

Body format for submitting your forms is added to already existing spreadsheet format. Besides Email mode Snappii developers implemented Web Post mode allowing to submit collected data to users' server side. It gives excellent opportunities such as creating charts (using Google Chart API), making any calculators, showing map with some location, etc.

You can make sure yourself how helpful these features can be on our site.

Snappii Has Announced Paypal Functionality and User Management Release

Paypal functionality will allow users to purchase physical goods or organization membership that gives them benefits outside the app. To buy multiple items from the app, Product List and Shopping Cart can be used opposite to adding Paypal button which allows to purchase only items at the set price. You can show your clients just a list of products without the ability to purchase goods by dropping Product List on your app.

User management is the feature which can help app creators control their apps usage and set different levels of access to the apps for users. If you pay attention to the tab settings you will notice new badge saying "Set permissions for element". Using default types and some new ones which were specified by you it is really easy to divide the users of your app into several groups. There are three modes you can use separately or simultaneously:

- General mode (default user types)
- Predefined users (presumably your friends/colleges)
- Members (users purchase their membership and get assigned manually or automatically).

These features are really awesome and worth trying on our site. If you have any questions or need more info how it works you are welcome to our FAQ.
