New Apple iOS 8 mobile software set to arrive

September 17th, 2014

New-generation Apple software for powering its coveted mobile devices is set for release on Wednesday, two days ahead of the arrival of its latest iPhones.

The iOS 8 mobile operating system will be available free for download to many iPhone and iPad models and will be pre-installed on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which hit the market on Friday.

Apple unveiled iOS 8 at its annual developers conference in San Francisco in June.

The new operating software is tailored to deliver a seamless experience for users flitting between Apple mobile gadgets and popular Macintosh computers.

Alongside operating system updates, the California company unveiled HealthKit software to manage personal healthcare and HomeKit for home appliances. They are integrated into the latest system update.

HealthKit will provide a secure haven for data collected by devices such as fitness bands that track activity and sleep.

Apple also synched iOS 8 to HomeKit software that could let iPhones or iPads be used as a centralised control for internet-linked gadgets such as door locks, lights, thermostats and security systems.

Apple came up with a common network protocol, so not only can an iPhone be used to open smart locks, but virtual assistant Siri can dim lights and lower thermostat settings when told, “Get ready for bed.”

Apple has also beefed up graphics and speed capabilities for games, which are consistently among the hottest applications on its mobile devices.

Capabilities woven into operating software include one called “Continuity,” which lets tasks started on one Apple gadget be automatically handed off to another one nearby.

Messages or calls can also be handed off between devices.

Apple last week announced that it is adding a smartwatch to its growing array of devices that will work together.

The Apple Watch will not be released until early next year.


Patent to Be Expanded for Mobile Apps, Software

June 20th, 2014

rom now on, mobile applications and computer software technologies can be officially protected by patent.

The Korean Intellectual Property Office announced on June 18 that it has revised patent standards and will begin granting patents for “Computer Program” claims. A claim is the extent of the protection conferred by a patent, or the protection sought in a patent application.

Up until now, the office had classified a software program as a recording medium, for the reasons that it is not clear whether software is an invention or a mechanism. Now, the revision will mandate new software to be applied as a computer program.

Such latest amendments aim to embrace petitions from the software industry which has demanded cutting down of perfunctory prerequisites for patent applications regarding the technology to relieve the developers of inconveniences and thereby protect by patents more diverse types of software technology. Previously, over 600 cases have been filed every year, of which new computer programs such as mobile applications could not be secured as they were not included in the list of patent-protected subjects.

An official at the intellectual property office said, “The industry have been quickly steering toward software-centered, but our patent system have not kept up with the trend. The latest revision will open up the ways for domestic software companies to be protected of their innovations and secure competitive power in the international market.”

April 14th, 2014

Leading mobile tracking application makers, StealthGenie, takes a level up in mobile monitoring by introducing a pair of new features, extended language support and iOS 7 compatibility for its valued clientele. We talk to Team StealthGenie about new features and the feedback from the users.

One of the prominent mobile monitoring software, StealthGenie, has once again outrun other monitoring software with Facebook and BBM chat monitoring features for its iOS and Android platforms.

“StealthGenie is the only mobile monitoring software to offer tracking features for all the widely-used IMs.”

Bypassing the 100,000 user-milestone, StealthGenie has positively kept the interest level of its clients intact by reaching out to diverse markets. With Korean as the latest addition to the list, StealthGenie has localized versions of the website, installation instructions and control panel in English, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Turkish.

With Facebook Messenger getting increasingly popular among the youth and BBM’s release on Android and iOS platforms, StealthGenie has quickly responded to monitor these messenger applications to cater to the needs of parents and employers.

“Our WhatsApp and Viber monitoring features have been a massive hit and it was high time to take it to the next level. StealthGenie is the only mobile monitoring software to offer tracking features for all the widely-used IMs.” remarked Amanda Wade, the Head of Marketing at the company when we asked about the new features and their market share.

StealthGenie also stands first in extending compatibility with iPhones and iPads up to the latest Version – iOS 7, another achievement which makes it noticeable among the other software in tail. For those who want to monitor iOS devices, StealthGenie makes more sense as it is compatible with all iPhones and iPads.

With effective compatibility, multi-lingual support and rolling out of new features frequently, StealthGenie certainly is leading the mobile monitoring industry by miles. With innovative features coming up so frequently, we are quite anxious to know what comes up next from StealthGenie.
