Email Feature to Mobile App

I’m having this thoughts again about importance of email feature with PicLyf Snap’s availability now in AppStore (to the few who gets to pass by this, please do get piclyf from your nearest iphone / ipod touch appstore).

This is not about piclyf, but to whatever apps. Why I will always insist on email feature, much more than native apps?

  • it’s faster to compose an email than wait for application to open up. Maybe it’s because i always use the low-end mobile gadgets. But probably that’s the point, more people are on low-end gadgets which struggles at handling apPs.
  • mobile internet here is just not that powerful / reliable. I feel that running a native client requires extra mobile internet speed thus it might end up to a frustrating experience. Some would blame the app, though it’s really the mobile internet w/c is sucky.
  • i can send it to multiple email address in one go. So it’s like i can post it to piclyf or what ever image apps, and also email it to the million social sites and friends & relatives in one click. Though, piclyf / posterous /ping.fm and others can let you post to different sites in 1 go.
  • email gives me a (false) sense of security that it will just work on whatever type of connection – wap, gprs to whatever speedname.
  • it can work on different smart phones. You don’t need to build one for iphone, ipad, bb, my favorite nokia, and such.

I’m just feeling nostalgic when emailing from your mobile phone is like the shiznit. But then, I don’t think it will ever be a thing of the past. =)

bucket list

Sunday Inquirer featured this article ‘Bucket List.’ Call me bitter, party pooper, killjoy, judgmental or what but I was disappointed reading the 1st 3 persons’ bucket lists.

xxxx, Globe Telecom
1. See all my kids graduate from college
2. Visit Antarctica
3. Shoot even par for 18 holes
4. Drive a Ferrari around Tuscany
5. Own a watch with a tourbillon

xxxx, Harbour Centre
1. Climb Mt. Everest
2. Drive a Formula 1 race car
3. Learn how to fly a jet plane or even a fighter jet
4. Hunt big game in Namibia and pigeon hunt with millions of birds in Argentina
5. For my port business, to go public really soon

xxxx ABC Broadcasting Corp.
1. Take a sabbatical and see museums around the world
2. Spend a month in Paris
3. See Machu Picchu
4. To go to Africa and witness the great migration
5. Drive a Porsche Turbo on the Autobahn

——-

Nothing wrong in them. It’s just that they are people who are in the position to make or contribute some positive changes to our society. But no one gives some Ms. Universe answer — that world peace kind of answers. Not even feeding programs?

I mean, come on Globe, how about affordable reliable internet to those who can’t afford internet. And, no wonder why it feels like they want to squeeze every piso in us.

Ferrari, F1, and Porsche before you die??? If it’s a Christmas wish list, I could let you pass but things you want to do before you die?

Owkei, I’m going overboard, and maybe hypocrite. But that article just doesn’t taste right to me (edit: not the whole of it because there are other people’s bucket list which are bravo for me)

Customers Will Frustrate You

Customers Will Frustrate You

Having customers is a great thing, but dealing with support is a whole other ball game. If you???re in the consumer world, expect to deal with customers that don???t notice the obvious even with your fancy pants UI/UX in place. You will also get an influx of feedback that is often contradictory. One customer wants it in red, another wants it in blue, and a third wants it combined to become purple. The key to dealing with customers is to respond to everyone, but have a strong rule of authority. If you succumb to customers frustrating you and do everything you say, you quickly end up in a far worse position.
