Which mobile OS is most popular in Australia?

On: Dec 14, 2012 Under: Android, Nfc

iOS has been the obvious answer to this mundane and obvious question for many years. But as of this year, not anymore. According to recent Telsyte research Andoid now deliver 44% of Australian smart phone operating systems, to Apples' 43%. Given Australia's long held love affair with Apple's iPhone, this is a milestone of some note.

The drivers for this are given as lower cost devices, more choice in devices and responsive design across platforms (you don't have to build and maintain multiple versions). With Apple releasing one phone per annum and the need to now respond to smaller tablets entering the market, it will be interesting to see these same figures in a year's time.

NFC and QR, what is the difference?

On: Dec 11, 2012 Under: Nfc, Qr codes, Solutions, Tagster.it, Tappy.com.au

A lot of clients ask us why NFC over QR or what situations to use each in. Here are the basics:

QR offers a link and has no production cost if being placed into printed media. At high resolution it reads well with most cameras if printed on a flat, non-reflective surface.

NFC offers over 20 additional interactions (and growing) to turn on phone functions, set preferences, launch apps, pass through data to third parties to 'order' things. It can do this because it allows data to be written and read from the tag, can be encrypted and can be used in or on almost any material or product.
