MoMo London – Oct. 29th – MWC 2013 Stand Competition Live Final

The UKTI MWC 2013 Stand Competition Live Final is on Monday 29th October in partnership with ICT KTN (http://ictktn.org.uk).

For the 5th year in a row working in association with ICT KTN, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and Cambridge Wireless we are pleased to invite you to the Mobile World Congress 2013 stand competition finals event.

At the final, each company gives a quickfire presentation (no Powerpoint) and is then questioned briefly by the panel of eminent judges.

The companies presenting are: Ringtrack Ltd, 51Degrees.mobi, MagicSolver Ltd, IC Mobile Lab Ltd, Distributed Management Systems Ltd, PixelPin Ltd, WMC Global Limited, Automatrics Limited, ROAMOBI Ltd, Aseptika Ltd.

After the presentations the judges will choose up to 3 companies from those presenting – the prize being not only space on the UKTI Stand at MWC but also stand branding, listing in the UK event directory, complementary exhibition passes and assistance with press and media activity to maximise the impact of being in Barcelona.

This has always been an exciting event, and discussions can rage as to whether the judges got it right – or not! Either way the prize is certainly worth winning, so come along and see who the lucky winners are …

MoMo London – 24 September – HTML5 vs. Native

On Monday 24th September, we see the return of this evergreen topic in our extremely popular annual discussion of HTML5 vs Native kindly supported by the folks over at Keynote DeviceAnywhere. We keep returning to this discussion because to live in mobile is to live in the fast lane! So it’s good to keep up with thinking and the trends that seem to keep changing the picture on an ongoing basis.

At our sell out event, last year, we debated the motion:

“This house believes that apps are the new ringtones and therefore have a limited shelf-life for long-term commercial gain”

and in a highly energetic and amusing debate, you, the community, decided in favour of the motion. Apps are dead, long live Web Apps!

Back then HTML5 was the new kid on the block, offering the promise of “write once run anywhere” and many of us enthusiastically espoused the dawning of a new era. A year and a bit later, how do we all feel about this?

Probably most of us still believe that in some time frame for some classes of application HTML5 does indeed offer the prospect and indeed does already provide a good answer to some clearly scoped and limited application use cases.

But in the light of over a year’s experience, some are saying that it’s not yet lived up to its promise and that although like the proverbial Chinese meal they felt full at the time, their hunger hasn’t been satisfied in the medium term and are sceptical about the long term. Perhaps, like other famous cross-device solutions both its promise and its readiness for market were over-stated. Insufficient specification, incomplete feature readiness, inconsistent order of implementation makes this an engineering bouillabaisse and does not provide the sort of commercial respite we were looking for.

So, reality has crept in, today HTML5 does not provide the ingredients for the kind of Michelin dining experience that is often needed. Instead, if you want a TV dinner, then it provides a Pot Noodles experience for consumption on the couch.

So this year, our motion is:

HTML5, far from being part of Gordon Ramsay’s larder is more likely to be used by Stavros at the corner chippie. Fine if you want chips. Do you aspire to be Gordon or are you content to be Stavros?

Chaired by the quirky, opinionated and even irascible Ewan MacLeod of Mobile Industry Review, and joined by two teams of leading debaters including Andrew Betts (Director, FT Labs), Sam Arora (Business Development Manager, Keynote Systems – DeviceAnywhere Platform), Jose Valles (Head of BlueVia), Nick Barnett (CEO, Mippin), Alex Caccia (CEO, Marmalade) and Chris Book (CEO, Bardowl). We are looking forward to another lively, and possibly even riotous debate!

MoMo London – Sept. 3rd – Mobile Apps Marketing

Successfully marketing an app can mean a wide-ranging marketing strategy that begins well before your app is even live. With numerous tools (ranging from analytics to social media) available to help developers with discoverability of their app, we’ll be reviewing the options – what promotional methods work (and which don’t) and where developers should be focusing their efforts.

We’ll be discussing the various options in a panel session chaired by Tim Green (Executive Editor, Mobile Entertainment), who has been writing about mobile content since the market’s inception in 1999. Our panellists include Keith O’Brien (Head of Content Strategy, Samsung), Oded Ran (CEO, Touchnote), Richard Firminger (Managing Director, Flurry) and Paul Armstrong (Head of Social, Mindshare).

MoMo London – July 2nd – Mobile Payments



ICT KTN Logo
Announcements of new mobile payment methods seem to have been popping up like spring flowers this year- joining that hardy perennial NFC. Last time we looked at this area was more than two years ago - so we agreed with our event partners ICT KTN that it's high time to catch up on what's happening and where all this is going. 


We'll be reviewing the options and discussing their various merits in various contexts in a panel session chaired by David Birch of Consult Hyperion - according to The Telegraph “one of the world’s leading experts on digital money” and according to David, quoting from Financial World, "mad". David returns to Mobile Monday London as chair for this event. Our panellists include Nathan Cushnie (O2 Money, Head of Product Strategy & Development, mCommerce, Telefonica UK), Russell Sheffield (Innovations Director, paythru), Jennifer Payne (Marketing Manager, Ponti's Group Ltd) and Iain Herd (OEM & Platform Partnership Lead - Global Business Development at PayPal Mobile).

MoMo London – 11 June – Inclusive and Accessible Design

We’ve been meaning to hold an event on this important topic for absolutely ages, and it’s an enormous pleasure to announce that we are now doing so to coincide with the launch of Vodafone Smart Accessibility Awards 2012.

It’s not just that inclusive design is virtuous, it seems clear to me that inclusive design is “good design” for everyone and is also commercially sensible design.

Yet for some reason this is not widely discussed in the context of mobile, but should be.

To help us understand this area more clearly Henny Swan (Senior Accessibility Specialist at the BBC) will make some introductory remarks to set the scene for us.

Following that we have a panel discussion chaired by Robin Spinks of the RNIB (Principal Manager, Digital Accessibility) and he’ll be joined by Henny Swan (BBC), Damon Rose (Ouch! Podcast producer & BBC News journalist), Suzette Keith (Usability and Accessibility Researcher & Visiting academic at Middlesex University) and Abdi Gas (FA Board, Disability Equality Advisory Group at the Football Association).

This year’s Vodafone Smart Accessibility Awards will follow the same format as last year’s extremely successful awards. With four prizes each of EUR 50k this is something you should be paying attention to and wonder why you are not entering if you are eligible! We’ll be hearing more about the awards at the event, so come and find out.

MoMo London Demo Night Event Round Up

In partnership with ICT KTN, Demo Night made its return on the 2nd April ... to yet another packed house.

We're very grateful to all the demoers who presented their interesting ideas, and we're only sorry that we had to turn down so many others. Thanks also to the many attendees who gave feedback on the event, by all accounts it was enjoyable! And now on to our Valentina Ciolino (@MissFog) who tells us more about the serious side of the event.


Did you miss April’s MobileMonday London demo night? Too bad - more than a show and tell, more than apitching event, it’s where the audience discovers what’s cool in the mobile industry. The format is simple: entrepreneursand others show their work or pitch their idea in three minutes, get asked questions by their peers, find partners and most importantly, realize what tochange, tune or improve in their project!

In fact choosing between tons ofsubmissions is very difficult, so there’s a good chance of a “second round”later this year … not to mention that things will have moved on by then, therewill be more new ideas and you still have a chance to be on stage with yourdemo.

In the meanwhile, I can safelysay that the trend this time was “social and local on mobile”.


For example, if you are 60+ years old, youmay want to login on to Go-myLife. Launched out of aEuropean action research project, it is an online social networking platform, witha focus on privacy and usability, tailor-made for older people. It will work oncomputers, but it will be particularly easy to use on smartphones. People cansign up and try the prototype service on gomylife.euor check the official Facebook page;the testing just started in UK and Poland.

Sooqini is areverse mobile marketplace - the buyer (not the seller, hence"reverse") posts a request for goods, services or information, ontheir phone or the web, and multiple sellers bid for it. A map displaysrequests in your area, or one can search per category or price. PayPal or bankpayments are supported and there’s a small fee on each transaction. 2500+people are already using it.

Or, if you are into writing (and reading),you can visit Movellas, a new, social, community platform for creating,discovering and developing stories whilst identifying talented authors. Youngadult authors can share their work, get feedback and become read by thousandsof readers from all over the world. It’s free right now (in the future, theywill ask for a 70-30 split on incomes), and it has already reached 200k+comments from the launch.

KO-SU is an innovative mobilelearning platform open to everyone who wants to teach and learn via mobiledevices. It allows subscribers to create interactive activities optimised for the mobilescreen. Activities are created from templates that support text, images, audio,videos, multiple choice, free text questions and even drawing tasks. The onlything user won’t ever be able to do is to print on paper, as KO-SU was alsocreated with the intent to avoid waste and save trees.

In the same way that Social speaksto e-commerce, Mobilespeaks to location-based services, and the companies at the Demo Night had somegood ideas about that.

LocalSocial,by Rococo Software, is a retail engagement platform that makes it easy formerchants to create offers, loyalty points and more that only unlock in-store.The service uses NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as "beacons" to support andtrigger retail interactions. You could watch their demo videoor try it yourself: a trial was just launched in Dublin- and the UKwill be next. The team is currently actively looking for partners andinvestors. One can reach them on twitteror at their blog.

For travelers, Pearson presented LangAR, a location-based, Augmented Reality talking phrasebook forEnglish speakers that suggests nearby points of interest and providescontextual phrases (written & audio) in Spanish that a tourist will need toknow to get by when travelling abroad. The prototype currently runs on Androidand iOS and combines language learning, location-based services and AugmentedReality into one useful and fun application which is a first to my knowledge.

But it’s not all about social and local. Wewere introduced to many different ideas based on new technologies.

Tone Push is the prototype for anapp that allows you to set your ringtone on someone else's phone.  There's a one off download and once the appis installed onto your device, then you can upload MP3’s directly from anybrowser (no Wi-Fi or USB cable required) … or, for a bit of fun, you can uploadto your friends phone as your ringtone. Whilecopyrights issues will be avoided by “passing” them to users, money will bemade by licensing and/or selling original ringtones or with a subscriptionsystem. A public alpha is available, and if you’re interested enough in theproject, you shall contact Richard he needs a co-founder to join in!


And if are not into ringtones, but likevideos, Six3 Video Messenger lets people sendeach other short, private video messages using smartphones, PCs, tablets andother connected devices. The video streaming is especially speed-optimized, butvideo messages can also be sent via e-mail. You can watch a video (of course!) of the product.

D-touch markers are visual markerswhich are easy to design and user friendly. While it was already an open-sourceproject for PC, Intellidzine hasdeveloped the D-touch mobile library for Android. Simple images can triggerlinks, videos, software and pictures, just like the one of Jo Rabin at theside. Better than QR codes! This library is useful to create mixed reality applications;it is free and available on github. Volunteersneeded for porting to iOS.


Or if you need secrecy for your personalmessages, why don’t you encrypt them? Enigma simulator is a simulator ofthe WWII Enigma machine for Android, intended to raise funds for the BletchleyPark Trust. Private messages can be sent via the app, and 1200+ people arealready using it.


Lastbut by no means least, Dan Lane has come up with ImpossibleTelecom, a new MVNO based on the values of innovation, customer serviceand transparency. Dan’s taking the extraordinary step of offering things thatcustomers might want, for example the possibility of sharing the same number ondifferent devices, using two different numbers on the same SIM card, andsharing the same bundles (for text, voice, data), between different numbers. Thenetwork won’t be the cheapest one, but wants to be the most innovative. You can sign up to be an alpha tester.

Many companies who have demoed inthe past at MoMoLondon have gone on to widespreadrecognition and increasing success, so good luck to all these people for theirprojects, I hope that being at Mobile Monday will be the first step on asuccessful journey for them too!


And we'll be featuring some of those journeys in future demo nights ... thanks to Terence Eden for giving us an impromptu update on the QRpedia journey since presented at the April 2011 Demo Night - it's going places!

MoMo London – 19th March – Post Event Round Up

MoMoLo volunteer Valentina Ciolino (@MissFog) has written up the proceedings from Monday 19th March - also do be sure to check out the interesting posts from MoMoLo regulars Simon Judge and Adam Cohen-Rose.

With many thanks once again to our sponsors - Barnes and Noble.

Over to Valentina:



We said goodbye to the winter and greeted the spring with an amazingly crowded Mobile Monday event: “Tablets Come of Age”.  

A wide range of viewpoints on the panel offered us a range of perspectives on the current state and possible future of tablets: journalist Stuart Dredge, mobile product manager Hesham Al-Jehani from ComScore, the creative director Ben Scott Robinson from WeLoveMobile (pictured), Claudia Romanini from Barnes & Noble's Nook Developer, providing the point of view of an hardware-selling and app-store-managing company, and finally the panel chair: Marek Pawlowski from MEX, the well-known user experience conference and consultancy.

And tablet user experience was indeed one of the main topics for the evening, the others being the user demographic, tablet usage and the infamous in-bed horizontal position. Not joking.

So how many types of tablets are there on the market? We can at least divide them into reader’s tablets, which includes both the e-ink devices and their little colour-touch-screen brothers from Nook, Amazon, Sony, and multi-purpose tablets, such as the ones powered by Apple, Android, RIM and Windows OSs. They have different uses and purchasing reasons: the reader’s tablets focus on the best reading and book purchasing experience, and appeal to not necessarily tech-savvy people (Nook’s target are mainly women 25 to 45 years old); the Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy and RIM PlayBook fight for the same market as the smartphones, laptops and hi-tech gadgets.

Both Marek and Claudia offered us an overview of the market: Apple sold 40m iPads in 2011 in US, an amazing number of users that took smartphones 7 long years to reach. And while iPad now hold on 70% of the tablets market worldwide, its share will shrink within 2013-2014, giving space to the other brands. Nook is already the second best-selling tablet in US, and as for the others readers tablets, people buy it to read and buy books and then discover other functions and apps and games, and start buying them too. 

The forecast is that the devices sales will increase more, tapping into the PC sales. People who today have a PC but use it only for content consumption and maybe sending a couple of e-mail will soon buy a tablet instead. The business opportunity here is clear: tablets will become a mass-market product soon and good apps and content are required!

But software houses can’t make the mistake of just porting their smartphone or web apps to tablets without customizing them. In fact, there are some peculiar use-cases for tablet apps that sounded very interesting, and each of our panelists explained one. 

Ben told us about his 70 year old mum, who immediately understood how to open and use tablet applications, while she refuses to try the same with smartphones due to their small screens. Elders can approach tablets as a tool to read books and then maybe use them for some of their health-related applications (especially when you can plug other simple medical tools and send the results to your GP). Icons are big and the interface can be very clear and user friendly.

Claudia and Hesham reported about their families sharing time on tablets; use them to read tales and novels or to watch cartoons and videos and your children will be with you to enjoy the experience. Claudia’s 7 years old daughter taught herself to read with the help of a tablet used to register her voice and listen herself again, while Hasham’s 18 month old toddler prefers tablet time to TV.  And Stuart pointed out that his kids play with tablet apps in the same creative way as they do with Play-Doh, sometimes asking for help and proudly showing the results to their parents. 

Stuart’s wife also involved him in some collaborative shopping, from easy Christmas gift orders, to the potentially much more expensive selection of houses. Some ecommerce companies and brands are in fact already working on tablet-compatible versions of their Web sites, as well as video distributors, magazines and newspapers or TV firms such as Sky; while other companies are also going the other way, like the publisher Penguin which, as Marek reported, bought the rights to create a paper version of the Whale Trail app from UsTwo.

Will the entertainment industry be affected by tablets rise? The panel agrees that’s not the case. Some companies are even using tablets as sales tools (like Netflix increasing its use-base via iPad), and newspapers and magazines especially, noted Claudia, can play with the tablet features and create customized content for subscribers, where every article and picture is animated or triggers a video.

Tablets are perfect for entertainment and work well with TV, making advertisers very happy. In fact, Ben stated that TV and tablets are complementary just like web and radio, and Marek confirmed that 30% of tablet usage is in front of TV. 

Tablets are an interesting kind of portable device - despite being not heavy and not that big (so truly portable), they mostly stay at home, their mobility being limited to being taken from one room to another. This is confirmed, as Hesham noted, by stats showing that 92% of usage is over wi-fi (in the US) and content consumption happens while sitting at one location. 

21% of US tablets owners use them in bed and the above-mentioned horizontal position (which Hesham noted he has personally tried many times) is one of the most common for tablet use. It’s a market of couch potatoes and lazy night owls.

While during the day people use their PC and in the morning the check mails on their mobiles, the traffic peak for tablets is between 9pm and 11pm. People use tablets to browse the web, read books, check a recipe while cooking, watch movies and videos and play games. And there’s even an artist that uses his tablet to paint some digital drawings with his fingers.

Apart from that case, though, the content production on tablets is quite difficult due to the absence of a keyboard and that’s why they still struggle a little to enter the enterprise world. Tablets today are not very good for writing and not good enough to type, despite some good external keyboards on the market and some software to improve the use of the digital keyboards. The stylus seems to be making a come-back in this area – Marek noted that this was the accessory-du-jour at the year’s MWC, though he also noted that a stylus works better on old-fashioned resistive touch screen technology rather than today’s capacitive touch screens.

So what’s in the future of tablets then? The panel had a round of telling us what they would like to see on the future devices: some tactile experiences, easier connectivity with other devices or with PC, more focus on good and customized content, maybe a new generation of tablet apps that don’t mimic the user interface of other devices. Hopefully that will be happen soon!


Thanks Valentina and I'm so glad that Stuart got in that point about hating skeuomorphism, right at the end there!
