One of the most exciting things for apps and developers I have seen in a long time…Cervin Ventures and Tie Angels must think so too.
WE SHALL SEE…
Social analytics firm Claritics, said it has launched a new analytics platform for games and apps for Android powered mobile devices.
Claritics raised a $1.5 million round as it talked about helping social game and app developers analyze their data and reap more money from their efforts.
Now the company is extending that effort to mobile apps on Google’s mobile operating system.THE
GOOGLE no less.
Mountain View, California based Claritics calls its work “social intelligence.” Claritics has been testing it’s cloud-based analytics with various venues that range from game companies to utilities and media companies. It’s all about getting enough data and organizing it so that it becomes “actionable.”
In other words, enough “stuff ” so you can figure out what to do with it next. Claritics wants to cash in on the explosion of the social web and it’s deep and wide data mine of buying/purchasing
(MONETZE MONETIZE BABY) and consuming choice data and to make automated processes. The service will be to let developers to narrow their customer search reach, retain users, and launch revenue campaigns on the fly. The real-time data become useful not just for looking back but for predicting the future.
WHO AND WHERE WILL MONEY BE SPENT? TELL ME PUHLEEZE ?
The new mobile platform is self-service,allowing developers to figure out in real-time what is working well — or not — in their mobile games, for example.
Claritics lets users delinieate their data based on device type, carrier, campaigns, location and other factors.
Claritics says it has made its sign-up process and usage more intuitive to dramatically reduce the time it takes to get the analytics up and running. App makers can use the service to evaluate user engagement and the behavior of those who buy things in games.
WHO BUYS MY STUFF and PLAYS MY GAMES??
Rivals include Kontagent, Apsalar and Flurry.
Claritics has said its platform has been in private beta testing with more than 100 potential customers. The company was founded in 2010 and has around 10 to 15 employees.
Investors include Cervin Ventures and Tie Angels.

Are you ready for a move to Microsoft Office 2010?
Will any of the new features benefit you- your business or organization or bottom line?
Will an upgrade to Office 2010 impact compatibility with older versions of Office or other productivity suites?
In this article, we’ll briefly outline the new features in Office 2010. Finally, lets examine compatibility issues with older versions of Office.
New Features in Office 2010
It would be unwieldy to list every new feature in Office 2010, but here are a few of particular interest to nonprofits and public libraries.
Co-Authoring and Office Web Apps
The most significant changes in Office 2010 are its improvements to collaboration, both within an office environment and over the Internet.
For more information, see the next section of this article where we’ll discuss the Web Apps features in more detail.
Improvements to the Ribbon Interface
Office 2010 forges ahead with Ribbon, a new type of menu that Microsoft introduced with Office 2007, with a few improvements.
You can now create your own Ribbon tabs for quick access to functions that you frequently use .
I am all for upgrades and while
http://www.microsoft.com is the undisputed giant,
You REALLY have to see for yourself if the expense – and compatability aspects with your present sysytems works.
Just because there is a new software product- while it may be the newest and shiniest this does NOT mean it is good for you or bottom line.The bells and whistles may not be worth the price in time -
Numbers Report: Cell Phones, Smart Phones, Tablets, 3D
Consumer purchases of personal computers are expected to decline 39 percent this year, according to a survey from consulting firm, Accenture.
Purchases of cell phones (not counting smartphones) will decline by 56 percent.
Dumbphones ( versus smartphones – sorry – I have a simple mind- taks so little to amuse me ) are declining
But purchases of 3D televisions are expected to rise 500 percent; tablet computers 160 percent;
eBooks readers sales grow 133 percent; and smartphones sales grow 26 percent.
Accenture’s annual survey focused on 19 different gadgets used by more than 8,000 urban-area consumers in Brazil, China, India, Russia, France, Germany, Japan and the United States.
Ninety-three percent of the respondents owned a computer—a higher proportion than any of the 19 other technologies included in the survey.
But measured by growth rate, the PC market has reached a level of saturation and will continue to see smaller growth rates. Investors – think about this …
Chinese consumers were among the most enthusiastic purchasers and users of the latest consumer technologies.
More than half (53 percent) of Chinese respondents own a smartphone compared to one-third of U.S. respondents.

How mobile devices are changing our world- the way we connect
and our community information chain.
All the facets of of data gathering are INCREASINGLY DAILY going more mobile.
Nearly half of all American adults (47%) report that they get at least some local news and information on their cellphone or tablet computer.
“What they seek out most on mobile platforms is information that is practical and in real time: 42% of mobile device owners report getting weather updates on their phones or tablets; 37% say they get material about restaurants or other local businesses. These consumers are less likely to use their mobile devices for news about local traffic, public transportation, general news alerts or to access retail coupons or discounts,” Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project says.
One of the newest forms of on-the-go local news consumption, mobile applications, are just beginning to take hold among mobile device owners.
Compared with other adults, these mobile local news consumers are younger, live in higher income households, are newer residents of their communities, live in nonrural areas, and tend to be parents of minor children. Adults who get local news and information on mobile devices are more likely than others to feel they can have on impact on their communities, more likely to use a variety of media platforms, feel more plugged into the media environment than they did a few years ago, and are more likely to use social media:
35% of mobile local news consumers feel they can have a big impact on their community (vs. 27% of other adults)
65% feel it is easier today than five years ago to keep up with information about their community (vs. 47% of nonmobile connectors)
51% use six or more different sources or platforms monthly to get local news and information (vs. 21%)
75% use social network sites (vs. 42%)
15% use Twitter (vs. 4%)
Tablets and smartphones have also brought with them news applications or “apps.” One-quarter (24%) of mobile local news consumers report having an app that helps them get information or news about their local community. That equates to 13% of all device owners and 11% of the total American adult population. Thus while nearly 5 in 10 get local news on mobile devices, just 1 in 10 use apps to do so. Call it the app gap.
These mobile app users skew young and Hispanic. They are also much more active news consumers than other adults, using more sources regularly and “participating” in local news by doing such things as sharing or posting links to local stories, commenting on or tagging local news content, or contributing their own local content online.
Many news organizations are looking to mobile platforms to provide new ways to generate revenue in local markets. The survey suggests there is a long way to go before that happens. Currently, only 10% of adults who use mobile apps to connect to local news and information pay for those apps. This amounts to just 1% of all adults.
When it comes to payments for news more broadly, 36% of adults say they pay for local news content in some form – be it for their local print newspaper, for an app on their mobile device or for access to special content online. The vast majority of those who pay for local news, 31% in all, are paying for local print newspaper subscriptions and only a fraction are paying for apps or for access online to local material.
One question in the news industry is whether the willingness to pay for online content would grow if people faced the prospect of their local media not surviving otherwise. Pressed on the value of online access to their local newspaper, 23% of survey respondents say they would pay $5 a month to get full access to local newspaper content online. When asked if they would pay $10 per month, 18% of adults say yes. Both figures are substantially higher than the percentage of adults (5%) who currently pay for online local news content. Nonetheless, roughly three-quarters say they would not pay anything.
Asked the value of their local newspaper, respondents are divided. Just under a third (28%) say the loss of the local newspaper would have a major impact on their ability to keep up with local information. Another 30% say it would have a minor impact. But the plurality — 39% — say the loss of the newspaper would have no impact.
