30% of users are now browsing on their mobile devices.

Over 98% of websites are not mobile compatible in Ireland, unlike our competitors in America and Asia.

Managing Director of ziggiapps.com, Aidan Haughey said;
“Getting on to smart phones is essential for businesses who want to grab customers attention;  your standard website will just not hold them. Users only browse for 20-40 seconds at a time and if they don’t get the essential information quickly you have lost them.”
Ziggi’s solution is simple; strip your website down to the four essential parts of communication: Who, What, When and Where.

The four page zapp allows businesses to deliver their essential message  and can be updated regularly using a very simple online editor.

Is a web-app the same as a native app?

In the past there was a very clear divide between apps and websites. The main difference was that applications could access the hardware on phones such as GPS or camera features. But now, thanks to HTML5, the line has blurred and web-apps are now so similar to apps, most customers won’t realise the difference.

Distribution of zapps are also simpler than conventional methods. Via QR Codes they can simply be downloaded from a website/social site or can be emailed or texted to customers who can the open them on their phones.  QR codes can also be displayed on print media allowing customers to easily digitise your leaflet or poster to their phone in seconds.

Apps in Education

Google and Apple have taken a huge slice of the education market so far, with Google boasting 16 million students using its online educational apps.  Apple have introduced their educational remit with some degree of success in Ireland but some problems still arise for participating schools.  The major restrictions for teachers is the lack of educational apps and poor broadband in most schools.  Another concern is the lack of equipment. Feedback from the teachers has been broadly positive but the restrictions of apple-only educational apps and the shortfalls of Irish broadband standards has made class participation frustrating,

ziggiapps propose an alternative option to the multi-nationals.  As our software is compatible with most mobile devices including PDA’s, we believe we can supply a more suitable, reliable and bespoke service to the Irish and UK marketplace.

With most schools in Ireland now using interactive whiteboards we can also supply online templates teachers can adapt and use for class participation.  This would be particularly useful for local Geography or History projects for example. Apps can also be used for class tests such as spelling or maths.  These apps could also be self marking, freeing up valuable time for the teacher by not having to correct individual copies during class.

Benefits of apps in education:

  1. It’s a fun way to get children interested in a subject.
  2. Instant assessment allowing pupils to see their mistakes immediately.
  3. Learning about apps will equip children with knowledge of the latest technology.  (Learning within learning)
  4. Reduces waste by replacing paper.
  5. Locally relevant Apps.

10 reasons to use ziggiapps in your school

  1. It works across multi-platform mobile devices and computers
  2. Its free to send and receive apps
  3. Its free to use (no data rate)
  4. Easy to access
  5. Simple to update
  6. Bespoke design to suit the Irish education system
  7. Local service means better service
  8. Apps can be downloaded from your own website, by-passing app stores.
  9. Safer. No need for internet means a safer environment for pupils.
  10. Cheaper.  Because we are independent and affiliated to no product Ziggi can reduce your costs.

The Future of Advertising is Mobile – so says Google!

Google labelled the future of advertising at the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s MIXX Conference in New York as

“Display 2015: Smart and Sexy”

Google states that with a huge jump in smart-phone sales, mobile is going to be the number one screen through which users engage with advertisers’ digital brands.

“Today, the “click” is the most important way that advertisers measure their display ad campaigns, but it’s not always the best measure—especially if an ad campaign is designed to boost things like brand awareness or recall,” said Neal Mohan, Vice President of Product Management at Google.

“Just like most news articles on the web today can be commented on, shared, discussed, subscribed to and recommended, in 2015, 75pc of ads on the web will be “social” in nature—across dozens of formats, sites and social communities.

“Rich media formats work. They enable great creativity and interaction between users and advertisers, but today they only represent about 6pc of total display ad impressions. That will increase to 50pc, for brand-building ad campaigns.

“All the investments that are making display advertising smarter and sexier will help publishers increase their revenues. Display advertising is going to grow to a $50 billion industry in five years.”

Location Based Information – The Origins of ziggi!

World Wide Web

World Wide Web (Photo credit: Bull3t)

Hello and welcome!

What’s going on in the world of technology and marketing/communication?

We set up ziggiapps.com back in 2008 and every since its been a steep learning curve – we’ve gone down a few wrong roads, reversing to find new, better paths where the future looks brighter.

Anyone that works in technology knows how difficult it is to stay ahead of the game and we are constantly looking out for new innovative ideas so please feel free to leave a comments/suggestions!

I know, I know, innovative is the most over used word since the start of this recession but I couldn’t think of another one…..

ziggiapps.com is our website – check out what we do.

We began our research by looking at trends in the world wide web and discovered that people are getting drowned in information.

Do you ever feel like the web is like asking a group of people for directions and they all come back with alternative directions at the same time!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the web and I’m sure it will catch on some day;-)

Current articles on the future of the web tends to have a few reoccurring trends;

  1. Bite sized information – what do people want to know??
  2. Location, location, location – Where are you doing business??
  3. Search as you shop  – When are people searching for what they want??

The web has almost come full circle. The internet broke down borders and allowed people to do business everywhere in the world. Now we find billions of websites and its becoming more and more difficult to find what you want.

People are searching for products when they are out shopping. This seems a little bizarre but true. Prior to super fast 3G and smart-phones consumers would generally search days in advance before heading out to the shops. Now, people shop and search as they shop.

The tech savvy consumer is now in one of  2 categories; The WWW online consumer  & the price comparison consumer who knows how to buy stuff online but would still perfer to see the product up-close.

The world wide web has become the who where web. Acording to a recent report in Wired Magazine, “Now mobile phones are inverting everything again, in the other direction — because your location becomes the most important thing about you.”
