In times of success, we should thank all those who stood by us when we needed them. This is why we felt the need to thank our team, the hardworking souls, who have been with us through this journey. We, from Technostacks, had organized a day long picnic for our team at a renowned resort. Our Team too, loved the idea and on February 24, 2017, we embarked on our bus journey with a happy gang of our staff members.
The bus ride was as memorable and we had reached the resort early in the morning. The resort had our breakfast ready and soon after, the music speakers were on playing the latest of music encouraging everyone to shake a leg.
  • Adventure activities to have fun:

    After a satisfying breakfast, our staff members got a chance to try their hands and skills on some adventure activities too. We had booked the resort for its lush open space and we found that our staff members happily ventured out to do the forest trekking and try their hands at Kayaking, tire walking, swimming and having fun in the pool, and finally zip-lining.

    As the day progressed, the resort got our lunch ready. The sumptuous food left everyone contented. We then had an award ceremony where we felicitated all the members who had been our great pillars of support.

  • Awards, Music and Dance aplenty:

    Our unique award ceremony gave away awards to achievers in the following categories:

    1. 1. The Perfectionist “High Dedication” Award
    2. 2. Star Performer of the Year
    3. 3. Wonder Woman Award
    4. 4. Bright Beginner Award
    5. 5. Excellence of Adaptability Award
    6. 6. Hyper Helper Award 2016 “Support Staff”

  • The resort then organized a cultural event post which, we had high tea, and then danced our way to the waiting bus for our return trip. While returning, we saw the smile of contentment, and simply enjoyment on the faces of all our staff members. This just proved us that there is nothing more pleasing than a happy employee is. We would like to thank the resort members too for making the day very memorable for each of the employees of our firm.

Web designing has always been a dynamic field where new technologies and design platforms come up every day. Keeping a pace with the technological advancements, the clients’ paradigm of a trendy webpage design has also shifted to new heights. This has brought tremendous changes in the web designing trends in the recent few years.
Web designers were seen trying out innovative design patterns to give the web pages a delightful look and feel in 2016. If you are planning to launch your webpage soon, read on to know about the web design predictions in 2017.
  • 1. Creative use of grids: Use of standard grids in web pages is a thing of past now. Designers have given a completely new makeover to these standard patterns by creating customizable unique grids. The grids are formed with rectangular frames, which are placed one over another to give the page a unique look. Colors and shadows can be added further to individual frames to give the grid an elusive feel.
  • 2. Use of semi-flat themes: After the use of flat themes by Microsoft in Windows 8, the flat design ruled the industry for quite some time until some loopholes were observed in this pattern. Till mid 2016, the flat design was there but then the web designers overcame the shortcomings of the flat themes and introduced semi-flat themes in lieu of the earlier. More depth and dimensions were added to the flat themes to make them semi-flat ones.
  • 3. Use of Cinemagraphs: Use of still images in web pages is very common and designers hardly prefer to use videos due to high bandwidth they consume. So the use of Cinemagraphs is expected to be trending in 2017. The Cinemagraphs serve the purpose of both images and videos by being more than just an image and like a video by being motive in nature. These are similar to the GIF files and do not use high bandwidths.
  • 4. Use of Parallax effect: Use of Parallax effect has been gaining some momentum lately. This is one way of giving some depth and liveliness to the rather still flat designs. In this effect, the background image of the webpage moves at a different speed than other contents on the webpage, which creates an impressive look and feels as a visual treat.
  • 5. Use of Lazy load effect: This is a great design technique for websites, which experiences frequent content uploads. To make sure that the users do not turn away while waiting for the contents to come up, use of lazy load technique loads the contents first before loading the page. This is surely going to be a top trend in 2017.

    2016 has already been a year of massive trend changes in the web design industry. We are looking forward to such more new things to emerge in 2017.

Ever since the introduction of ibeacon technology by Apple Inc. in WWDC 2013, companies have leveraged this to their maximum benefits. Businesses are delving into newer dimensions with ibeacon apps.
Beacons app development is scaling new heights in the industry as the demand for ibeacon apps is soaring up. Unlike the Geofencing apps, ibeacons operate in a much smaller area and track every single device in their range. In this post, we will be discussing the various aspects of ibeacons development and ways to reap the maximum benefits to your business.
What the buzz is all about?
Beacons are low energy (LE) Bluetooth devices, which send Bluetooth wireless signals. It scans its proximity for beacon compatible devices and sends a promotional push notification to the devices.
Currently, few companies are manufacturing such BLE beacon devices. You can install as many beacons as you want to ensure maximum coverage and guide the prospective customers to your store.

How to use the Beacons?

It’s time to refurbish your old push notification mechanism. You are all set to use the beacon apps with the below steps.

  • 1. Set up the beacons: You need to buy some of the beacon devices and get it molded to suit the nature of your business. The only thing that needs to be kept in mind that those must be compatible with iOS and Android.
  • 2. Integrate with the app: In the next step, you have to create the push messages that you wish to send to the devices in its range. You can install the beacon app and integrate multiple physical beacon devices with it. Once the setup is done from your side, it starts scanning the proximity for compatible devices and sends the pre-defined messages.
  • 3. Install at your desired locations: Be it, your entrance or your exit or the main hall, you can choose to install the devices anywhere you want. Besides their locations, you can also choose the time and frequency of sending notifications.
How secure are these Beacons?
As we have already mentioned, these are very low range devices. Once the user moves out of its coverage area, beacons cannot track them anymore. Therefore, as it operates in a smaller area, it is very safe and secure.

According to experts in the industry, new trends will be set in App store optimization services in 2017 like it did in the previous year. While deep linking strategies are expected to play a major role in ASO trends 2017, many other changes are also expected to take place in the area of ASO services.
  • 1. Deep linking will be the king:
    As the trends have already started moving towards profound linking and app indexing from keywords, it is obvious to have a great impact on the portable ecosystem. App indexing lets the users navigate to their native mobile apps directly from the Google search results through back end links.
  • 2. Real-time Analytics to play a major role:
    Numerous tools have just emerged in the ecosystem and are not adopted fully yet for real-time analytics. We do not expect this to be a key trend change in 2017 but according to experts, it will definitely bring a revolution in the expectations, integration techniques and reporting models of the modern real-time analytics tools.
  • 3. Description of the apps will have a big impact:
    The app description will need to be more keywords rich as the keyword’s density in the app’s description and name will play a major role in deciding the rank of the apps. The ASO services providers, and developers will have a tough time creating a quality app description.
  • 4. More real-time A/B Analysis:
    A/B testing has been in the web world right from its inception, but it is getting attention for a few years now. According to experts, 2017 will be a year where A/B testing will get some priority, and a standard will be set in the industry.
  • 5. Online reputation management will become crucial:
    Ratings always play a key role in deciding the fate of an app, be it a new app or a famous one. App owners will need to pay greater attention to all the reviews and ratings that affect the reputation of the app. App developers need to align strategy well to drive in reviews that are more positive by adopting good reputation management techniques.
    User retention rates of the apps will also become important in deciding an app’s rank in the app stores. The app stores are already booming with millions of apps and we are eagerly waiting for more apps in 2017. Hence, App store optimization services will play a significant role!
