高科技带来的便利:LG KiZON 儿童手环电话

LG在南韩发表儿童专用的GPS追踪器KizON,主要是透过GPS和简单电话功能,让家长可以凭手机App得知子女位置,还可预设范围,当孩子离开指定范围,KizON就会通知父母。

另外,KizOn具简单的通话功能,只要按下按钮就会致电预设号码。此外,父母亦能透过App联络子女,假若10秒钟内没有接听,KizON就会自动接通,让父母听到附近的环境声音。

这类的设备结合硬件和软件(App),利用GPS追踪位置并不新鲜,但是用来帮家长看顾子女,便是一种创意。家长有了这套设备,便不怕子女走失,也不怕子女离开自己视线,无法掌握子女的消息了。

其实这类的科技也可以应用到宠物上,只需把手环的设计改变即可。香港人不怕爱猫爱犬走失了,路人遇到走丢的宠物,也可透过装置与失主对话,帮忙寻回爱宠。

App Review : Open Rice

Open Rice is one of Hong Kong’s most revered apps that reviews restaurants and recommends everything food related in this ever moving city. Online, people are invited to review restaurants with their own personalized username and then review the restaurants with detailed reviews rating them with smiley faces that range from delicious to vomit worthy. The website and app is highly popular among the local Cantonese people and foreign expats alike. As Hong Kong isn’t as spread out as most cities, it’s easy to navigate the search fields of: location, restaurant type, budget and ratings.

As most large cities have a wealth of food bloggers, although peppered in Hong Kong, there are not many of note. There are more popular food and travel Instagrammers than famous bloggers. In that absence, that’s where the beauty of OpenRice App arrives. On the app, one can follow certain food reviewers that use OpenRice to double as their blog. The HK app development team probably was planning their design around the fact that many people would be using this app almost like a food blog. Reviewers can rant and rave about restaurants with tens of thousands of readers, who can act as their following. In the world of Mom & Pop restaurants, which is famously Hong Kong, this can make or break the business. OpenRice also allows submitters to even add their own restaurant if they haven’t found it yet to review!

Another bonus of the OpenRice app is that it has location based search terms. So if opened while walking in Central, the app will tell you the nearest available places based on your search criteria. While Hong Kong isn’t a large place, this app makes it extremely handy to find somewhere to eat. The app developer must have taken into consideration the popularity of the website, which shines UX.

Open Rice is also famous for advertising and marketing schemes when it comes to businesses working with the Hong Kong app and website. Available to the advertising teams are front page marketing, pop up ads when opening the app and downloadable coupons and vouchers for customers to use at certain restaurants. With the days of Groupon, who offers dirt cheap deals and cuts the business financially, OpenRice can help improve important reviews that can influence business while still increasing sales with restaurant coupons.

OpenRice, both the website and app, have become highly influential players in the Hong Kong F&B marketplace. The ease of which to navigate the app in both Chinese and English leaves many customers without wanting more as all food locations can be included. Unparalleled in this thriving city, OpenRice app brings the ease of finding a place to eat based on budget, reviews and location. The app development team was able to create a beautifully designed app that functions as well. By being able to find any restaurant within walking distance and using location based services, OpenRice allows personal insight into the Hong Kong app market.

App Review : The Entertainer

The Entertainer app is a new luxury app available around Asia and the Middle East. The app provides discounts and deals based on location and where you are looking for deals. In the land of hk apps development, The Entertainer is a timely addition with low cost discount companies like Groupon coming along. Although with The Entertainer, their rival may be Twangoo online, but we have yet to see them do any HK app development.

Within the Hong Kong community, it is widely known that luxury is a must in Hong Kong. When it comes to luxury brands and the local culture, everyone is always hunting for a deal. The Entertainer app provides deals on location bases, so when you are walking around a certain area or city, you are provided with all the deals for that area. Unlike Groupon, which is free, The Entertainer proves its luxury status by only taking customers who buy the physical book or the app. The price varies depending on what package you buy but starts at around $150 HKD or above.

The app developer who created The Entertainer app made sure to keep it light and adaptable to location, as it clearly updates every time you move location. If using the map while transporting across Hong Kong you can see the updates as you move. It’s a great distribution asset when thinking of HK app development. As the app trends become different, it’s important for developers to focus on new and improved aspects when it comes to customers viewing experiences. There are a lot of apps that may be useful but from a UX standpoint don’t hold up. Well planned and developed UX is crucial in app design, especially in Hong Kong where there are a plentiful amount of app developers around. A team that can specialize with a unique product and well designed UX, will be a winning team.

Another luxury of The Entertainer is that it is not only Hong Kong specific, the development team took into account the frequency of travel in Hong Kong. People here as among other large Asian cities, travel with ease and would definitely like the ability to reap benefits from the most frequented destinations such as : Dubai, Singapore, Johannesburg and London. One of the best deals, especially for travelers, is that The Entertainer offers 2 for 1 nights stay when it comes to hotels around the world. Obviously, prices and dates may vary but when thinking of traveling and using a discount app while still maintaining a sense of luxury, The Entertainer goes above and beyond
