How the new iPhone 4S will impact social media /iphone-4s-impact-social-media/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=iphone-4s-impact-social-media /iphone-4s-impact-social-media/#comments Tue, 04 Oct 2011 21:52:01 +0000 Emily Doig- Contributing Editor /?p=3661 Well as you know, the new iPhone 4S was announced last night in California and the features are impressive. Some are saying its not the “revolution” they had hoped for and rather an “evolution” I say, whatever, its a phone… and it just got smarter… maybe even smarter than YOU!

Rather than just looking at the features in terms of a “user” today we are going to have a look at the features that as a SME will help us manage our brands/business social media on-the-go

iPhone 4S features…

-8 mega pixel camera. Perfect for uploading images to Facebook and Twitter of “behind the scenes” shots of your business/ brand. These high quality images will allow for much “faster” to market shots resulting in more “real time” interactions

-1080p HD resolution video recording pretty much the same as above. Great video quality for on the go when you are away from your “normal” environment/equipment. Think vox pops and updates from events/conferences etc

-Siri- Artificial Intelligence… this is kinda cool. “wherever you see a keyboard, you’ll be able to input with voice.”
In terms of Social Media this means being able to update your status or send a tweet. Users will still need to open the app and launch “update status” or “send tweet” however as soon as the keyboard appears then you will be able to “tell” your phone what to update

-Watch the video here

App Design Contest /app-design-contest/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=app-design-contest /app-design-contest/#comments Tue, 02 Aug 2011 23:29:02 +0000 Emily Doig- Contributing Editor /?p=3390 Are you an App designer? Do you like the sound of going into the draw to win 5000 Euro (yes, well, we know its not as much as it used to be, but it’s certainly noting to sneeze at)

Our friends over at WYTSC (WORLD YOUTH STUDENT CONFERENCE) have sent us the details of their new competition which is all about Apps. We love their innovative approach, shaking up the youth travel industry (because despite being early adopters in
e ecommerce they aren’t exactly leading the way in mobile)

Check out the website here for more info.

For travel/tourism operators wanting to further expand their networks and knowledge base of the youth travel industry, we recommend registering for the annual WYSTC event (to be held in Barcelona this year) Its a 3 day jam packed event of buying/selling and learning.
