Mozilla announced first two Firefox OS smartphones

July 1, Mozilla released the first two smartphones carry its new own operating system – Firefox OS: the ZTE Open and Alcatel One Touch Fire. The two devices will soon be available through Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom. Telefonica announced that the ZTE Open will be offered in Spain starting on July 2 for 69 euros ($90). The Firefox OS is an open-source system, intended to compete with Android for developer attention, and the experience is reportedly similar to using an Android device.  It was developed using HTML5, the language of the Web, which Mozilla hopes will make it easier for third party developers to produce apps.  With HTML5 integrated onto an open source operating system, there’s definitely a possibility that Firefox could catch on with that crowd, although it remains to be seen if the software has the performance or longevity to make a splash. Mozilla hopes to conquer much of Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America with Firefox OS — most of which are currently dominated by cheap Android devices. Reference: PCworld,...

How Free Apps Can Make More Money Than Paid Apps

As a co-founder and CTO at 140 Proof, a venture-backed startup for targeted Twitter advertising, John Manoogian III had written an article in TechCrunch website sharing his idea about ways to monetize mobile apps.   “While building apps for Apple and Android app stores can be highly lucrative ventures for developers, one of the hardest decisions an app developer has to make is how to get the app to pay for itself. Often the “monetization strategy” — shorthand for “how will this app make money?” — is left for last. It’s hard enough to get discovered by consumers among the millions of already existing apps, not to mention convince people to buy it. People increasingly prefer free, ad-supported apps for their tablets and smartphones, yet many developers still aren’t sure how to tackle the free vs. paid issue. Deciding when to charge for your app, and when to try an ad-supported model, is one of the hardest decisions developers must make. Four Monetization Strategies for Apps? Actually, There Are Only Two. Developers have several monetization options available, each with its own requirements and pitfalls. Before moving forward with a strategy though, there are a few of questions an app developer should explore in order to answer the ultimate question, “how can I monetize my app?” 1.       Is my app engaging enough for people to use it often? 2.       How willing are people to pay an up-front fee for my app? 3.       How do competitors in my space monetize their apps, and how successful are their strategies? As app markets across platforms explode, developers are talking to each other to determine the best type of monetization...
