Want to launch your own tech start up? Get some tips from these companies.

Although tech can sometimes be a little imposing, it can supply the tools and the solutions for endless business opportunities. Some of the UK’s greatest start-ups have technology to thank, and this is especially true with companies like Uber and Swifkey. The mobile app industry has grown to offer a solution for everything you can think of. Shopping, personal finances, insurance. All of these industries are making cash from you while you’re standing in the queue or stuck on the Tube. It’s also no secret that the mobile betting industry is the hottest new market for mobile developers. If you’re curious, here’s how to access every gambling market on the go – download bet365 APK file for free and get your game started.

So, you’ve had a fantastic idea. You want to build the app and create a service which will proves successful and will earn you some cash. What do you need to look out for?

Why do so many tech start-up companies fail?
Everybody loves a happy ending, and most tech start-up companies are success stories that we all aspire to. However, the grim truth is that most fail within the first six months of their launch. Fortunately, failure in the start-up world is no secret anymore, so we can embrace failure and learn from it. Learn from failure. Fail fast, learn, move on.

Poor idea
The first and foremost question that you should be asking yourself is whether your product or service is needed on the market. What’s its unique proposition that nobody has offered before and is it useful? According to Fortune, this is the top reason why some innovative companies simply don’t work. It’s straightforward to assume that your product has to be useful for the majority of people you’re targeting, but you’d be surprised to find out how many young, self-conscious entrepreneurs still develop mobile apps that nobody needs, as they believe they can simply convert them to love the apps. Do people really want your app? Can you see them going out of their way to find it? If not, and if they’re not going to do it in big numbers, it’s perhaps time for a re-think.

Insufficient tech expertise
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you know everything. You might have the idea, but you might not know exactly how to put it together. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to go onto forums and ask questions. Find out whether there’s people who are prepared to come and help you out.

Tech can make people lazy, and that groundbreaking idea you had a few months ago could quickly turn into a pipe-dream if you lose momentum and don’t grow.. Keep an eye on the competition, ensure that you’re using great UI, you’re targeting the right audience and listen to your audience.

What can we learn from the success stories?
You will have heard of the brilliant UK-based start-ups sucj as Skyscanner, Deliveroo, Hedgehog Labs and Waracle, but can we all be like them? Similar to gambling, launching a successful start-up takes a lot of luck and favourable conditions, as well as a brilliant idea and execution. Even if it’s unlikely that we’ll be the next Steve Jobs of the mobile world, there’s a lot you can learn and steal from our all-time winners of the British tech scene.

Never lose focus
Be laser-focused on your audience, know their weaknesses and offer a good solution. The London-based start-up Yavli is a good example of a company that knows everything about their audience. Yavli offers carefully selected content to millennials by allowing publishers to reach out these ad blocker users by providing sponsored content.

Simplify
Customers have smaller snapshots of time, so reducing the workload required to perform certain tasks is a great way of appealing to them. Companies such as GoCardless have achieved this. This app was developed by the co-founders of Mondo (another successful London-based start-up that offers branchless bank services via a mobile app), and it’s now used by companies such as TripAdvisor and The Guardian. Now businesses can process cardless transactions.

Work hard
If you’ve created your app and it’s made a few downloads, down sit around on your laurels. Pay attention to even the smallest bugs, the tiniest suggestions and continually work to improve. Just standing still means that you’re going backwards, as your competitors will just blow you out of the water. If your customers see updates to your app, and responses to their questions, they’ll stick with you on the ride, and they’ll appreciate that you’re sticking with them too.

Nobody achieved success by being lazy. Hit it hard, drive it through and adapt as a result of that feedback. Admit when you got it wrong, don’t be afraid to start again. Come back better, stronger and at the right time.

  • Need a 3.5mm audio port in that iPhone 8 Sir?

    Need a 3.5mm audio port in that iPhone 8 Sir?

    We all knew that this problem was coming the minute that the 3.5mm audio port got dropped on the iPhone 7. Of course, despite our cool Bluetooth headphones, we have to admit that battery life will always fail just when you need it. So, how about using traditional 3.5mm headphones ?

    The iPhone 7, the iPhone 8, the Plus variants and the new iPhone X are all 3.5mm audio-socket-less. Worst of all, if you want to charge and listen to tunes, you’re a bit stuck.

    Need a 3.5mm audio port in that iPhone 8 Sir?

    No matter though, because for £29.99 Belkin have an answer. It’s their new “3.5 mm Audio + Charge RockStar” and means you can listen to the latest banging beats whilst at the same time charging your iPhone. It’s fully MFi-certified and supports one 3.5 mm cable and one Lightning cable.

    This is now a little cheaper than it used to be too, so an added bonus.

  • NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser – Review

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review
    Having lots of gadgets is seemingly the norm nowadays. Likewise, we’re seeing more and more solutions for charging them. Most of you will probably have one charger per device, which is great until you start getting a second phone, a tablet or you’ve got other members of your family in the house with gadgets that need charging too.

    Oh, and what happens when they’re all on charge at once? It’s a cabling nightmare, and keeping it all looking neat is a never ending battle.

    I’ve tried a number of ways of doing it, and have now resorted to having a “charging cupboard” in the kitchen which has a charging station inside. That way the cabling is hidden 🙂

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review

    Today we’ve got another solution and this, for £69.99, has 10 USB charging ports and stylish slots up top where you can position your phones and tablets. It should make for a neater solution when you’re charging several gadgets at once.

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review

    First up, the things you need to know. It’s got a 120W power output, which means that each USB port gets up to 5V 2.4A maximum. All 10 USB ports can deliver full-speed charging to your devices and it’s protected against overload, short circuit, lightning strikes and power surges. Inside, when the unit gets warm, a fan will kick in to keep the unit cool. If that temperature goes too high, the whole unit will shut down as a safety precaution.

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review

    A simple-to-use switch and the traditional “kettle lead” power plug.

    The chunky build is also fireproof so you can rest easy, even when all 10 ports are in use.

    The slots at the top are both stable and smooth, so no real chance of scratching your delicate gadgets unless you’re really ham-fisted with it.

    Here’s my overview video..

    As you can see, I have a bit of a cabling issue with this, and I’d definitely recommend getting some fairly short charging cables (none are supplied with this unit).

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review

    Overall, this did exactly what it’s designed to do and I even managed to slot a small portable charger in the top too. It’s ideal for shared spaces such as offices etc, but I would recommend getting some fairly short cables or perhaps find a way to hide the cables in a desk somehow so that they don’t trail around the unit like spaghetti.

    Head to Amazon to buy this one.

    NTONPOWER Charging station and organiser   Review

    Even with the cables fairly neatly placed, it’s apparent that these are a little too long

  • iPhone 8 Review: So This Is What Good Battery Life Is Like

    Another year, another iPhone, except this time there are three of them. The iPhone 8 is the first out of the gate, but it’s overshadowed by the iPhone X looming in the wings, and while there are some new elements — a glass back — you could be forgiven for feeling a bit of Deja vu.

    Placing all the recent iPhones side by side, from 2014’s iPhone 6, to 2015’s iPhone 6S and 2016’s iPhone 7 and on to the 8, it’s clear very little has changed on the outside.

    2014 Design

    The iPhone 8 is fractions of a millimeter larger in every direction than the iPhone 7. It’s also heavier than the [other iPhones]. Some will tell you that you can notice the difference, but that it’s a good weight. You can’t, and it doesn’t matter.

    Because of its 2014 design, the iPhone 8 looks and feels outdated compared to sleeker, more modern rivals, despite still being immaculately made. The large bezels top, bottom and at the sides make the iPhone 8 look almost retro, and not in a good way.

    The back of the iPhone 8 is glass, which inevitably makes it more fragile, but to what degree remains to be seen. In terms of the device’s feel, the glass is a double-edged sword. It’s less slippery in the hand than the metal of the iPhone 7, but I found it slipping off sofas, desks and other not-quite-level objects more easily. You’ll probably want to buy a case.

    The screen looks great for an LCD and now has Apple’s True Tone system from the iPad Pro, which alters the colors of the display based on the ambient light. Samsung and competitors have had similar systems on their smartphones for years, and it makes the screen more attractive but sacrifices color accuracy.

    Modobag – Motorized, Rideable … err… luggage

    Modobag   Motorized, Rideable ... err... luggage
    I don’t know about you, but having a small carry-on suitcase with wheels on, one that glides effortlessly around an airport, can be a very, very, very, very .. minor irritation.

    So, welcome to crowdfunded item number 25251613. The Modobag. A motorized suitcase that’ll make you look like a complete dick.

    OK, maybe I’m being a little harsh. This will do 5 mph inside and 8 mph outside. It weighs 9.07KG when empty and is around 56cm by 35cm by 23cm, so should fit into the majority of hand luggage compartments. They don’t tell us quite how long the battery lasts for, but they do tell us it’ll do 6 miles. My maths makes that just over an hour inside an airport, which should be enough time for people to knock into you as you skid around like a lunatic.

    Modobag   Motorized, Rideable ... err... luggage

    Oh, and it also has two USB ports for charging your phone and other gadgets.

    If it had a tow-bar then I guess you could drag your other bags through the airport.

    The makers tell us that the lithium batteries are compliant with the air travel regulations but… well, we’ve done some checking. A lot of airlines (including Air France, Flybe, Jet2, Monarch, Ryanair and KLM) have a maximum weight limit per carry-on bag of between 10KG and 12KG. So, with this weighing in at 9KG, for the majority of airlines, you’ll only be able to put 930 grams of stuff inside, and that’s especially true for the short-haul airlines where you’ll be wanting to use carry-on baggage only.

    Doah.

    You couldn’t even stick a bag of sugar in this thing without it being overweight. Want to put your laptop in? Tough luck, my friend.

    Modobag   Motorized, Rideable ... err... luggage

    Oh, the retail price is $1,495, which is £1115.87. That’s just bloody ridiculous.
