Vivo V7+ India Launch Set for Today, How to Watch Live Stream

Vivo V7+ India Launch Set for Today, How to Watch Live Stream

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Vivo V7+ price in India is not known
  • The Vivo V7+ launch will be live streamed
  • The launch event begins at 12:45pm IST

Vivo V7+, a new selfie-focused smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer, is launching in India on Thursday. The company will be live streaming the launch event, which begins at 12:45pm IST. The live stream can be seen on several platforms, including the company’s YouTubeFacebook, and Twitterpages, as well as on Flipkart and Amazon India. We’ll embed the video below as soon as we get the link.

There’s not much that’s known about the Vivo V7+ for now. We know it’s a selfie-focused smartphone. We also know that the display bezels on the sides are small. With the launch live streaming on both Flipkart and Amazon, we can also gather that the smartphone probably won’t be exclusive to either. Stay tuned to details from the launch event.

Vivo India recently also launched the selfie-focused Vivo V5s smartphone in the country, and priced it at Rs. 18,990. The big highlight of the Vivo V5s is the front camera – it bears a 20-megapixel front camera with a ‘Moonlight Glow’ front light and an f/2.0 aperture, apart from the Face Beauty 6.0 app. On the rear, the smartphone features a 13-megapixel camera with PDAF and dual-LED flash.

The dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Vivo V5s runs Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It features a fingerprint sensor on its home button. It bears a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D Curved Glass, Gorilla Glass protection, and a pixel density of 267ppi. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.

On the storage front, the Vivo V5s offers 64GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM format. The Vivo V5s runs on 3000mAh non-removable battery, weighs 154 grams, and measures 153.8×75.5×7.55mm.

Why Twitter Needs to Constantly Change to Create a Positive User Experience (Watch)

With all the 140-character sentiments being shared online these days, there are bound to be a few that cross over the line and become hateful or otherwise inappropriate. But now, Twitter is trying to do something about it. The social platform just announced plans to slow down abusive accounts and hide abusive tweets from public view.

This isn’t the first time Twitter has had to make adjustments to curb harassment or hate speech on the site. Last year, Twitter rolled out changes that allow users to block certain keywords and conversations from their feeds and report hateful conduct from other users.

But while this latest update is likely a step in the right direction, it probably won’t be the last change Twitter will have to make. Anytime a business like Twitter allows for user-created content, it gives those users the ability to have a big impact on the user experience for others.

So Twitter shouldn’t just let all of that content go unchecked. When certain users get abusive, hateful or otherwise inappropriate, it ruins the experience for everyone else using the site. So even if it’s not something that Twitter itself is doing, it can still lead to a poor experience or even to some users closing their accounts altogether.

The End Goal is Always a Positive User Experience

And since public opinions can vary so widely, that means Twitter will likely have to update its policies and processes constantly so that users have more control over what they see and don’t see. It might seem like a lot of work, but it’s all in the name of creating a positive user experience.

8 of the Top Apple Watch Apps for Small Business Owners

For years, Apple fans waited patiently for the so-called iWatch.

Then, on Sept. 6, 2014, Apple finally gave the world a first look at its first piece of wearable technology during the big iPhone 6 event.

The Apple Watch, not the iWatch, has now been on wrists for at least several weeks. So far, even with some first-gen hiccups, the Apple Watch has proven to be a well-constructed smartwatch that should come in handy for small business owners thanks to the eight following apps.

With expectations of sales of wearables increasing 50 percent in 2015, being an early Apple Watch adopter doesn’t only mean being ahead of the game, but for small business owners, these are the top Apple Watch apps at your disposal for making the most of your Apple Watch.

Evernote

The free Evernote Apple Watch app is a great addition to the popular business app that you probably already have installed on your iPhone.

Just like the iOS app, this Evernote app can be used to set reminders, take dictation or view notes, and even see content that is related to an upcoming meeting. Because the Evernote Apple Watch app moves seamlessly between your iPhone or iPad, it makes working while on-the-go a breeze.

TL:DR

TL:DR is a free iOS app that was released earlier this year. It was specifically designed to simply browse your Gmail messages since you may be too busy to read them. The messages appear as “cards” which give you just a glimpse of the email.

TL:DR also provides an estimated time on how long it will take to read an email, as well as the ability to reply, read later, or open the email. You can can even use TL:DR to open attachments.

Clear

Clear is another popular app (it’s been downloaded by more than 2.5 million users) that can be used to create reminders, view upcoming tasks, and swipe tasks once they’re completed.

Because of Clear’s elegant and minimal interface, it’s well-suited for the smaller screens of the Apple Watch. Clear is available for $4.99.

Slack

Slack is a free productivity app that has been gaining a lot of traction lately. The iOS app is already being used by over 750,000 people. Through the Slack app, you can easily and quickly communicate with team members, as well as share valuable content with them.

A very handy feature for the Apple Watch is the ability to respond to messages by either dictation or choosing a pre-selected response.

Invoice2Go

Invoice2Go is a powerful cloud-based app that allows users to create invoices and estimates instantly. It can also be used to keep track of unpaid invoices and give you a glimpse of how your business is performing through reports. The Apple Watch app has a very cool “geo-fencing” feature that tracks your time spent at a job.

Service is free for three invoices, with more robust plans starting at $49.

CommitTo3

CommiTo3 is one of the more innovative productivity apps available. It was designed to allow users to prioritize three most important tasks for the day. You can then create teams of people, which can be anyone from co-workers to family members, who can assist with completing the tasks.

Participants can send reminders to each other throughout the day, check the status of tasks, and check off tasks when they’re completed. The app is free to download.

Salesforce Wave

If you rely on the awesomeness of Salesforce’s CRM platform, then you should be thrilled that it’s also available on the Apple Watch. The Salesforce Wave app gives you a snapshot of your business analytics through the Salesforce Analytics Cloud.

With Salesforce1, you can send notifications to salespeople, marketers, and service agents.

Finally, the Salesforce Wear Developer Pack can allow you to create your own enterprise apps.

BetterWorks

BetterWorks was designed to help enterprises establish goals. And, that’s why this simple idea works so well on the Apple Watch. As BetterWorks cofounder and CEO Kris Duggan states,  the “app will make it easy to get a quick snapshot of where current goals stand, add short check-ins and cheer on coworkers achieving their goals.”

The Apple Watch is still just in it’s infancy. But we can expect even more apps that can help small businesses achieve success to roll out in the very near future as soon as the bugs that come with a first-gen product get ironed out.
