First prize in Vserv-DVLUP competition

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:22 am

Vserv new logo

Vserv delivers Smart Data™ insights on the emerging billion connected users that can be leveraged by marketers, telecom operators and app developers. Through tools such as AppWrapper and SDKs, the company enables app publishers to integrate ads within their mobile apps and derive maximum monetization out of them.
These tools enable publishers to integrate ads within apps without having to modify the source code. This makes them an ideal solution for developers who are looking to take their apps to the market faster without having to go through the learning curve of a third party advertising platform.
This year in June, Vserv partnered with DVLUP, a rewards platform for Nokia developers, for a competition to help developers increase their monetization opportunities for Nokia X apps. Our company participated in this competition, wrapping a set of Android apps for Nokia X, which brought our total downloads of Nokia Apps to over 1.1 million downloads!
The combination of advertising exposure, downloads, and app quality, put our company out in front, and on the September 1, we were notified that our company had won the first prize in the competition,  and were to be rewarded a cash prize, along with a Nokia X phone for development.

Smartwatch App “Wearable Whiteboard” update released

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:10 am


Samsung’s new Smartwatch “GEAR”, is a nifty little device that pairs via Bluetooth to your Samsung phone to send you notifications of emails, phone calls, text messages etc, you can use it to control music on your phone, and read past messages.

One thing the watch does not have is an input device, which means you cannot type into the watch. The screen is too small to support a keyboard, or you’d need to downsize your fingers! So, this app allows for a more natural form of input on a small screen, a whiteboard. You can use this whiteboard to scribble notes, using your finger, and save them for later. You’ve got a choice of colours, and the ability to rub out what you’ve done.

The app is quite popular in the Samsung GEAR app store, at #11 in the paid apps category, and #13 overall. It is a stand-alone app, and does not require an Internet connection, or Bluetooth connection to the host phone.

For the techies out there, this app was developed in HTML5 / JavaScript using the Canvas element. The smartwatch runs on the Tizen operating system, which sports a webkit-based browser, giving you the full HTML5 stack to develop apps with. Although, for developers, I cannot stress enough how necessary it is to get a real smartwatch to develop on, since the emulator is not a fair representation of the real device – and is much slower.

Open Merchant Account Ltd, Runners up in Nokia’s Do Good Competition

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:52 am

RNIBNokia and the RNIB (The Royal Institute for Blind People) ran in partnership to launch the “Do Good Mission“, to challenge developers to create apps that made a difference to the lives of people with low vision.

Open Merchant Account Ltd entered this challenge with it’s app “Audible Browser”, an App for windows phone that allows partially sighted or dyslexic users navigate the internet from their Windows Phone where selected text would be read out-loud by the app, using text-t0-speech (“TTS”). This technology empowers  those with low vision navigate web pages, directly from their Windows Phone device. This app is also available for Windows 8 desktop PCs also, and both apps are available free of charge for download.

Open Merchant Account was selected as a runner up in this competition, and have been awarded a design consultation by Nokia engineers to assist in future app development.

As a company, Open Merchant Account Ltd are happy to support the blind community, and this “Do Good Mission”, has enabled the company, albeit in a small way, to make their lives a little easier.
