Can web apps win Native apps

Will Web apps win native apps?

Web apps VS Native apps = ?

What will be the impact of web hybrid apps in smart phones?

Is there a scope for Web Apps in mobile platform?

Native apps for android are buzzing since 2008, whereas hybrid apps are sprouting in recent times especially after phonegap buzzing in the industry.

Whatever concept/idea can be implemented in web apps is already available in native apps – not like they can be done in native apps, but they are already done in many variations and in many duplication.

If you think of doing a photo gallery or audio player – there are variety of multiple apps already available in the stores. Developing one more app for the over crowed concept/ business model has no scope or meek possibility for monetization.

Html5 has great scope for redefining the user experience and interaction with millions of active legacy websites and billions of new websites going to blossom. But in app world where this fit in?

Html5 canvas can do wonders. But the same wonders are already done and available in app stores.

Trying and implementing the capabilities of web in mobile platforms, might be good for techie to demonstrate his ability. It is a sort of ability demonstrated or verifying new capabilities attained. But, its scope as app for monetization is questionable, other than landing in job or keep employable to a techie, where hundreds of variations already available in app store.

Will Web Apps be adopted

I see lots of html5 demos in internet, but I see them as ability demonstrated.

Ability demonstrated – Will it be used, adopted? Yes, they will be consumed by the industry like how web applications were consumed after out casting desktop application.

We are in a transition period – what is web, what is surfing, what is website and what is an app – everything is being redefined and reinterpreted due to mobile penetration. No more websites, only web apps.

Dynamic websites eliminated the desktop applications where frontend and back end running in same machine or distributed through networks. I remember FoxPro or dbase or devoper2000 application either as standalone or distributed across close networks in the same premise. Birth of web application made those standalone applications obsolete.

New capabilities of html5 will make native apps obsolete. When web apps can access device accessories like camera without phonegap plugins, native apps will become legacy applications. Because from browser without installing anything we avail what native apps provide. History will be repeated, but when? no idea as of now.
Exception may be to graphic intensive games.

Advantage of Web Apps over Native Apps

One of the major advantage of web apps. It is they don’t need to be installed like native apps. Use and throw, don’t store it in your device. Apps installed can consume battery, CPU, memory, space even when not used. They are active by their services/deamon even when they are not used. Check out the Nexus 5 battery drainage issue in Google. Device browser can run web apps or websites with the capability of native apps.

I hate installing apps which require internet connection , because the same can be done through html5 as web apps / web sites without the need to install.

Witness the transition is going to happen.

Rashad Khalifa Quran Translation

Rashad Khalifa’s english translation of Quran is awesome. Everyday reciting has improved my English language. Precise usage of word. Simple sentence. Improvement to vocabulary.

When I read it, I get the feeling like, I am reading something which is universal to All Humanity, rather than something which is restricted to a specific people/sect who identify/group themselves in dress code, long beard, specific names to be called.

I am not worrying whether Rashad Khalifa is a messenger or not. What I enjoy is his beautiful English, which I don’t see in any other English translations. If anybody read Rashad’s translation without prejudice or forgone decision, he/she will agree that his translation is the best source of path to Submission.

I accessed this in my smart phone and listen, read. It’s available in play store for android phones. Quran player link https://blogya.in/quran


Actually, my friend presented Rashad’s translation to me to improve my english language. He encouraged me to read everyday. Nowadays, a day is not passed without reading it. Every time, I read it, some verse inspired me.

Is Facebook useful to man

Is Facebook useful to us?

Facebook has become a connecting medium. That’s the only use, I see. Whatever good and bad happen in all the connecting medium, all is happening here too like in public gathering, mlm meetings, marriage, festivels. People use these platforms as per their need and interest.

Somebody promote their business- use the connecting medium for marketing or get new friends or keep in touch with friends, relatives or use Facebook for self exaltation.

Apart from these what is the use. Does Facebook stop me from rushing to office by Monday morning. Anything, which is not helping a man in his efforts to fulfill his basic needs, are making money out of him. Earlier we used tap-recorder, grammaphon, Walkman to listen music. Steve made the musical system much more easier than what was yesterday. But a man’s struggle for existence is not shared or reduced by these tech giants.

Still millions of people out there, who can not afford for an iPad or computer or smartphone. Technologic advancements are not empowering these majority section of people financially.

These technologies don’t reduce the price of basic need of a common man. Technology is addressing the comforts of people, but not needs. There is no technology which produce surplus rice, vegetables, cloths to distribute them at free of cost – where people no longer struggle for basic needs.

If you buy the technology, it will give you comfort, but it will not stop you from going to job or work to make a living.

Google Vs Youtube

Google was the major source of coding for programmers. Not only techies, but for anything and everything google was the reference point.

But, Google days are over now.

It is time for youtube. Log of video tutorials for techies in youtube. From kitchen to nano technology anything can be seen from youtube.

I started using youtube rather than google. One screenshot is equal to thousand words. One video is equal to thousand screenshots.

“Google it” is over, it is time for “Youtube it”.

Google bought youtube few years back diligently. So text or video content Google Inc is still the provider.

Hitler Concentration Camps are back

Hitler’s concentration camp is re-created in Companies when they plan for layoff or downsizing or head count reduction.

If you work in such company, you know that everyday will be a nightmare. You hear rumors saying, 5% lay off, 10% lay off, suddenly 30% lay off or total shutdown.

Fear, rumors, anxiety are the prevailing moods in companies when they become concentration camps.

Everyday you work is your lucky day. You are survived by one more day. Nobody knows who is next, but everybody fears. Some try to establish rapport with their managers, believing that they will be secured. Poor guys, they do not know, manager is also an employee, he is too subjected to downsizing.

Many quit, because of fear of being fired. They want to join to other companies before being pinked.

You should know how to handle your fear, anxiety. Otherwise, you will quit by fear of lay off, when there are chances you may be retained.

Fragile and empty showcase of big corporates are exposing now. All these have direct impact on professional colleges and indirect impact on people’s value system over education and job market.

Funny thing is in spite of all these fragility, still corporate employees are prey to loan market. Failure of corporate will have severe impact on banking industry.

Used cycles in chennai

Used cycles or second hand cycles can be bought in K.K.Nagar. There may be many places in Chennai. But this shop has come to my knowledge and i purchased 2 used cycles from there.

Before buying my new cycle(Rs.4000), I was searching for a second hand cycle shop. There was no specific shop details available in internet. Then I purchased new cycle. The same cycle can be bought at the second hand shop for Rs.1500 to 2000. But I missed.

Somehow, I got this shop address. I went there and bought two cycles for my kids(daughter and son). Each Rs.1000. I could bargain further, but I did not. Because thousand rupees is a surprise to me when the same cycle price at new cycle shop is 2500 to 3000+ Rupees.

While purchasing used cycles, make sure the cycle parts and condition are sound, because you can not expect any warranty or guarantee.

Here is the exact location of the cycle using google maps:
If you ride from Udayam Theater/Ashok Pillar towards kk.nager bus depot, there will be roundana where you can take right to P.T.Rajan road. Do not take the right, it just a land mark. Before that roundana or signal, there are few shops on the left side of Anna Road as per map. Within 100 meter before the signal, there is old cycle shop. If you ask there, you will be guided.
Other land mark is it is near/after KK.Nagar bus depot.
Since, no name board for the shop, I have to explain in detail.

Praising the Past

I see many old people who praise the past and frustrate with the present.

“Those days were paradise, clean air, no scarcity, people were good and honest, women were obedient. But nowadays everything is deteriorated compare to the past, the whole life is machine….”

But truth is every grown up man has positive view about his past and negative view about his current days. Men belong to all the centuries feel the same.

I read few short stories of ‘Pudumaipittan’, (Tamil literature). The stories I read were written around the life and society of Tamilnadu, especially Madras/Chennai during second world war (Before Independence). Pudumaipittan criticize the poverty, hypocrisy of the society. In between lines he satires the politicians of his day. The society he depicted is not much different from my society in terms of attitude towards fellow human being.

Apart from the scientific progress through the centuries, Human attitude is not changed in all the times.

Praising the past is meaningless, apart from technological comforts to those who can avail it, the past and the present are same in the attitude towards life. If past were paradise, no need for Bhudda or Mahavira and other spiritual leaders.

Why still people praise the past? It has to be studied in different view.

If you watch the kids or boys or youths, they do not praise the past. They enjoy the present. when the same youngsters, grow up as middle age or old people they started praising the past. At least they praise their boyhood and youthful periods.

So, praising the past is psychological rather than living standard or life style issue.

For everybody till their youth life is carefree. The overall mood is happiness. From middle age onwards commitment, needs, chasing the time and stress are become ingredients of life. The overall mood is frustration, a sense of disgruntled.

Those who enjoy the current life never praise the past. Those who last the happiness in current life, think old is gold.

No kid or boy or youngster praise the past.

Blogetting – Blogetter

Blogetter – the word I coin from the two words, blogger and marketer. In the same way Blogetting from blogging and marketing.

To earn money, a marketer promotes a product. In the same way, if a blogger wants to earn money from his blog, s/he has to promote a product/service in his blog.

When a blog is used as a platform to promote something, it’s blogger is doing marketing. He is marketing a product to his visitors. So the blogger becomes blogetter and the blogetter is doing blogetting.

The review blogs or tech blogs are earning money than any other type of blogs, because they promote a product – mobile phone, hand held devices, a software and etc. ‘Review Blogger’ or tech blogger are actually doing blogetting.

If you want to earn money from your blog, choose a product or product of your passion which is highly demanded by society, especially by the internet accessing society. Then transform yourself a blogetter, start doing blogetting. That’s it.

How God Punish You

When you born in this world, you are not deciding your relatives, siblings. When you go to new home, you are not deciding your neighbors. When you go to new office, you are deciding your colleagues.

If you are not deciding your people around you, who decides it. It may be Fate or ‘by chance’. Sometimes the relationship between you and your ‘people’ may be comfortable to you and dis-comfortable to you in other times.

Somebody has to ‘fight’ with their spouse throughout their life, For somebody their spouse is ‘made for each other’.

Brothers and sisters are affectionate to somebody and irritating to somebody.

Level of Jealous, Fear, Ego, tolerance, giving room for privacy, admitting the biological space, love, sacrifice and many attitude and economy related factors decide the flavor of your relationship with others.

If you lost peace of mind by the people around you, do not get angry at them. It is the fate or God’s plan. When God wants to punish or test you, He would not come in person. He punish you through the people around you.

God strikes you through your wife/husband, if He is in very angry with you.

If you have bad relationship with your Boss/immediate supervisor, God wants to show your how would you suffer in the hell fire.

If your mother and sisters see you as their enemy, often engage in verbal violence or execute domestic violence with you after your marriage, God alone can save you, because God wants to show you ‘love with expectation’ is fragile.

If you have a bad neighbor, God get aversion at the sight of you.

If you have tense relationship with your sons and daughters in your old age, God wants to show you, what is wealth and health.

When you are tortured by a person whom you have to interact often, please pray to God. Either God is testing or punishing you. God alone can save you.

If you retaliate or fight back, God will show you what is hell in this human life, your soul will be burning when you are alive.

Praying God is the only solution rather than ‘doing’ anything.

Remember, you are completely broke in selecting your parents, siblings, relatives, and neighbors. ‘Broke’ means, something can sooth you or harm you but you can not control what is suppose to happen at your will. You are lost. You can only ‘accept’. You have to let things happening to you. Now you are broke.

When you are broke, leave things to God and hope for the best. Things will happen at the will of God.

Do not judge a person or relationship. A relationship can be changed upside down at the will of God. When a relationship sooth you, be thankful to God. When a relationship hurts you, Pray to God for peace. Never Never Never, retaliate your parents, siblings, relatives, neighbors, spouse, Boss, and Kids.
