One thing commonly associated with airports and holidays abroad are delays. Everyone has heard or been involved in a holiday nightmare where they or someone they know has been stuck in major queues at the airport as they get set to jet off to warmer climes. What people really want is to get to the airport and breeze through quickly, without delay, so that they can start their holiday stress free. This could become a realistic possibility thanks to a revolutionary new mobile app available for smartphones and tablets.


A new mobile passport app that has received official authorisation by US Customs and Borders protection is the first of its kind and is said to simplify the whole travelling process thanks to how it works. The app, known as Mobile Passport Control, is available to users of both iOS and Android based devices and has so far been downloaded over 1 million times by holidaymakers looking to get their vacation off to a great start thanks to less time spent waiting in airports.


The free app works by allowing the user to create a basic profile. The profile includes details such as the traveller's full name, date of birth, address, phot identification and passport information. This is all secured by a pin number that will ensure that no details can be stolen or misused at any point by a third party. A receipt is created by the application which is then used to show at border control, to save waiting time and queuing. The Mobile Passport Control app also means that the days of filling out customs forms are well and truly over as the app itself is enough to verify the traveller's identity and details. It's a truly revolutionary new way to travel; as long as it used in conjunction with advice from an experienced immigration lawyer, to ensure that all procedures have been covered.


The ease of use of the app and the fact that is can shave hours off of waiting times in some cases means it's extremely likely to appeal to the mass market who just want to get on their way as quickly as possible. Another method by which it saves holidaymakers plenty of time is getting from the plane and out of the airport too. Four questions are posed to the traveller about the journey that they are on, once all four are answered correctly they have four hours to get from the plane and out of the airport.


Airports around the world are fully aware of the delays that happen on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. With the Mobile Passport Control app already proving to be a huge hit in America, it's extremely likely that it will be adopted on a global scale, with the UK likely to be very keen on the idea. It's been over 10 years since Britain brought in the e-passport and these further advances in technology will not only benefit airports but also those travelling too. It's a sure fire way to ensure a great start to the holidays. 



One of the biggest gripes with sharing photos via messaging services had always been the limitations which these apps automatically put on the shared images. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and almost all messaging apps usually compress high resolution photos which causes them to lose significant quality. That is no longer the situation with Facebook Messenger because the new updated app can now support images with resolutions of up to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels, which is about the size of photos shot with a 16.8-megapixel camera. As most modern smartphone cameras shoot at near or below that resolution, it's safe to assume that smartphone photo sharing will now become lossless (mostly).


Facebook decided to up their previous 2-megapixel limit on the messenger app in light of the 17 billion photos which are being shared each month on the app. We would say that it's about time too because 2-megapixel was a seriously low limit for smartphone cameras today! Let us know if you like this move by Facebook, we sure did.

With an Android smartphone, you can do a lot. Aside from all the usual phone calls, video messages and social media posts, you can amend documents, show presentations and stream films and music. For those who are interested in managing their money and watching it grow, there are some Android apps just for that!

 

A quick look in the Google Play Store will show a sizeable number of financial apps. Ones for the latest financial news, market data and even trading will prove valuable if you want the best possible return on your investment. When investing, there is a lot to think about, from the amount you want to invest to where you want to put your money.

 

Choosing an App

 

You need to choose the right app first. Consider when, where and how you would like to invest your hard-earned cash. When using any investment app, make sure that your bank card details are easily available. Otherwise, you won't be able to invest your money! Also, be sure that you have enough funds in your account to invest in the first place.

 

If you don't like to take too many risks, Acorns is a good starting point. This simple app allows you to invest your spare change in a safe and quick way. You can put a few cents or pence into different stocks and keep track of your money whenever you like. Any change left over from buying a coffee or pizza could be stored away in a stock of your choice.

 

Picking a Market

 

Before you invest, think about which markets are most likely to make you money. An app that has plenty of markets to choose from will give you more opportunities to explore. The Oanda fxTrade app offers over 120 currency pairs and instruments to work with, all while offering live market data.

 

To start, pick something to trade with, choose an amount of money you want to invest and then you can trade instantly. Live data and access to the latest financial news is a must for any would-be trader. If you have it on your smartphone, ready to read, you will be able to make a more informed decision on where to invest.

 

Latest News

 

If you need financial news, Feedly is a one-stop app for all kinds of stories. It pools news items from many different sources, with specific areas for business and financial stories. Not having to go between websites and apps for financial data will save investors time and give them an idea of what to put their money on.

 

For some of the more obscure markets and stocks, the Investing.com app provides data from markets all over the world. Accessing historical stats on this app will boost your decision making, as well as educate you about how different stocks work.



What is IOTransfer?


IOTransfer is a dedicated iPhone manager which can be used to transfer data to and from a Windows PC and any iOS device. It is a one stop data management solution for connected iOS devices on the Windows platform.


Features


IOTransfer has a whole slew of useful features, but the very fact that it enables users to work with an iOS device on a Windows computer without needing to install and sync their device with iTunes is its biggest appeal. As far as other features are concerned, IOTransfer won't disappoint anyone there either.


·        Works with all iPads, iPhones and iPods

·        You can transfer photos, files and even music from your iPhone/iPad/iPod to your Windows PC and vice versa

·        The software User Interface is very easy to operate with simple one-click transfer options

·        Can be downloaded and tried for free


Is It Worth the Price of Admission?


The iPhone manager is like a simpler and easier to access version of the iTunes, but with much fewer restrictions on what you can do and how you can do it. At $24.95/year for one PC, it's not a bad deal really, but it makes much more sense to just pay $5 more and get the lifetime license for one PC at @29.95. Better still, we urge that you try out the trial version for free first to get a taste of what's on offer.
