Containerize This: BlackBerry Secures More iOS and Android Apps for Enterprise than Other MDM Vendors

Originally posted on Inside BlackBerry for Business Blog:

Do you still think of BlackBerry as one-platform company? Think again. We are completely cross-platform, and have been so for several years. Android apps started running on BlackBerry phones in 2013. Last year our BBM mobile messaging shipped on all major platforms. And on the enterprise (BES) side, we embraced management of platforms such as iOS and Android in 2013, and Windows Phone last year.

Another case in point: the Secure Work Space feature that we introduced with the BES10 version of our Enterprise Mobile Management platform a year and a half ago. Secure Work Space is our version of a popular MDM feature called containerization, enabling work data and apps to be run separately from their personal counterparts.

WordPress for iOS version 4.8 comes with exciting editor and navigation enhancements.

New Editor

App users have long wished for a “what you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) editor on iOS. Until now, a rich mobile editing experience on the iOS app was reserved for those who felt comfortable with HTML. But not everyone is comfortable with coding, and few find it convenient to use code on a mobile device. The visual editor removes this technical friction and makes creating and publishing content on the go simpler. No code necessary!

The Chinese government has removed several prominent US tech companies, including Apple, from its list of approved vendors for state purchases, Reuters reported today. The change is hardly unexpected following the government’s response to accusations several years ago that the US National Security Administration had been using backdoors in Apple products to spy on users.

Quad’s Mobile Messaging App For College Groups Supports 500-Person Chats

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

A new mobile chat application targeting college students, Quad, is working to move student organizations off of email and onto smartphones for managing their group communications. Despite the popularity of mobile messaging applications, like WhatsApp, Kik, GroupMe and dozens of others, few of these can support a large number of chat participants, often capping out at 50 users in a chat, if not fewer.

Even though the majority of college students today carry smartphones, and are increasingly turning to messaging apps for their personal communications, that 50-person limitation is a deal-breaker in terms of using most messaging clients within a bigger college group, like a fraternity, sorority, an academic group, sports team, or another sort of student organization.

That’s the problem Quad set out to address starting this September when the app first launched. Today, Quad has a presence on 2,500 of the 4,500 college campuses across the…

Fly Or Die: Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

[tc_5min code=”518015625″]

In early October, we brought you our thoughts on the seven-inch Kindle Fire HDX, of which John is a huge fan.

Today we bring you the seven-incher’s big brother, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

In terms of Amazon’s evolution as a hardware (and specifically tablet) company, the Fire HDX 8.9 is a markedly improved device from previous generations. It’s thinner, lighter at just 13 ounces, and more powerful with a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor and improved software.

But how does it match up to the competition this holiday season?

John seems to think that this next-gen Kindle Fire has finally achieved “productivity status,” moving from a reader on steroids to a full-fledged computing device. I’m not as convinced, but I also haven’t been able to spend quite as much time with these Fire HDX tablets as him.

Would either of us save $100 and choose the HDX…
