MoneySupermarket Car Insurance App now Available on Android

MoneySupermarket has recently added a well-made little application to the Android Market, allowing anyone with a Google-powered smartphone the chance to compare various car-insurance quotes when they are away from their PC.

The full desktop Money Supermarket site is not very easy to use when you are accessing it from an Android handset, which is why the fully optimised slickness of the application is a much-needed addition to any motorist’s app catalogue. The interface has been designed to fit neatly within the touchscreen display of any Android device and it is uncluttered while still providing you with all the information you need.

Most people will be familiar with the process of comparing car-insurance quotes online and the Android app operates in a largely similar way. This means it is necessary to enter all of the information which is relevant to both you and your vehicle in order for the comparison search engine to work its magic and find the best possible prices from mainstream insurers.

You will need to be connected to the network to compare quotes as they are sourced from the internet, but as long as you are in an area with 3G coverage or within range of a Wi-Fi hotspot you should have no trouble using the app.

Each quote lists the name of the insurer, the cost of the premium both monthly and annually, along with the inclusive features such as cover for windscreen damage or a courtesy-car option. You can get more detail on each quote from within the app and there is even the ability to call the insurer in question should you desire direct contact with a representative.

How to develop an Android application

Since the Google Android is a pretty open-source device program, that means that anyone can create and publish apps for it! But this is easier said than done I am afraid – unless you have the knowledge at your disposal to write the code for an application. Well, believe it or not, you can write a very cool app for the Android, even if you are not a computer programmer. Don’t believe me?

Well, here are the steps that you would need to go through in order to successfully make and publish an app. And who knows? You might just end up with a huge online app hit!

Step 1.

You need to know the basics of the Android technology. You need to understand the basic framework so that you can understand how your app fits into it.

Step 2.

Development is the next phase. Once you understand how Google Android works, you can then move on to developing your app. Of course, this starts with a good idea, and goes on from there! There is a lot of help for people like you who are just learning to develop an app, so utilize it! Watch some tutorials, read some articles, and educate yourself. You might find that it is not quite as hard as you think it is to develop an Android app!

Step 3.

Publishing is the final stage of any app development, and this will cover how you prepare and release your app for use by others. There is a method to this, and it would be a huge shame to put a lot of work into an app, only to have it go to waste because you do not know how to publish it!

Creating an app for the Android is NOT as hard as you think it is. The key is just to keep going… when  you come to something you do not understand, take a little bit of time and learn it.

Android Project Managers Still need to Check Out the PRINCE2 Learning Aid iPhone App – and Here’s Why!

We know what you’re thinking: this is an Android site, and we’re Android fanatics. So mentioning anything iPhone might be a little over the top. We understand where you’re going with this completely. After all, would you bring an Android phone to the iPhone opening day party? Probably not unless you want to get attacked by an Apple army.

But if you’re a project manager and you’re rocking an Android right now, you still might want to hear us out. You see, the PRINCE2 certification exam is a big deal in the UK, and we know that we have a nice UK audience. So if you’re thinking about trying to study for the exam on the go, you definitely need an app like this. But what do you do if you don’t have any way to get what you’re really looking for? It can feel downright frustrating when you look up and realize that you don’t have an app that can work with the phone that you have. After all, who wants to go out and get an iPhone just to help them study for an exam, albeit an important one?

That’s where you have to let the developer know. PRINCE2 training is something that should be available to you even if you have an Android phone. Yet if the developer doesn’t know that you’re looking for Android porting, they’re not going to make an Android one. Generally speaking, if enough people get together and request support for the Android platform, you can expect to see an Android version in the near future.

That’s because these software development houses know that the more people they can please with free apps, the more publicity they’ll receive for their services as a while. So don’t think that your voice doesn’t count — as you can see, it definitely does!

Must have Apps!

In 2013, it’s not about what games you have. It’s not about which smart phone, which console, which gadget… What really makes the crucial difference to your digital experiences these days, is what apps you’re using. Apps have levelled the playing field for smart phone and tablet users in a big way. Sure, an iPhone may look a little different to a Samsung Galaxy Ace, but they can both run pretty much the same apps and as a result, have similar uses.

If you’re new to the world of apps, here are five of the very best, all of which are cheaply available for most Android and iPhone users.

1. Angry Birds – The most ubiquitous gaming experience of our era is firm proof that apps are now commercially outstripping their far more expensive console-based counterparts. This addictive little game challenges players to fire suitably angry-looking birds at their enemies – which happen to be pigs – by flinging them across the screen, adjusting velocity and trajectory through the power of touch screen technology. Bus journeys will never be the same again.

2. SpeedQuizzing – This relative newcomer is fast emerging as one of the most revolutionary apps of the decade so far. Many of us believed that smart phones had broken the pub quizzing tradition by giving contestants the means to cheat, but this clever app may just be the pursuit’s salvation. Players simply download speed quizzing software to their device and then play along in real time to a question master, using the screen as a buzzer. No time for cheating, and a newly dynamic quizzing experience.

3. Snapchat – This app’s been getting a lot of press lately. It’s founder allegedly turned down offers of $3billion from Facebook and $4billion from Google for the rights to Snapchat. He believes it’s worth even more… For the end user, it’s certainly worth a shot, allowing the sending of picture messages and videos with optional captioning to other devices. The messages self-destruct upon opening, so you can be (relatively…) safe in the knowledge that the file will never fall into the wrong hands.

4. Instagram – If that all sounds too much like child’s play, check out Instagram. It’s like a significantly pared down Photoshop with an in-built hipster aesthetic, perfect for users who like to tread the line between being artistic and narcissistic.

5. Facebook – Don’t forget the most significant digital firm of our times! Facebook’s app neatly packages all the social media site’s functions into a parcel that’s better suited for use with smart phones and tablets.
