Of all the things that make us cringe, the prospect of losing our Smartphone is most jitter-worthy. They sure as hell cost a fortune but that’s not the only reason we fear them getting misplaced or stolen.
Our Smartphones are our daily diary of to-do tasks, our only way of rekindling the old connections, our time-killers while sitting idle in a bus/restaurant, and most essentially, they are the proof we are alive (Exaggerated? No, wait for some dear one not answering your call thrice in a row and then observe the kind thoughts that keep bouncing of the walls inside of you!)

In the past, when you heard the word “flat”, it didn’t really mean a lot to you. It was just a word for describing things. It could have a negative or positive meaning, all depending on the context.

When you hear it, you think of a website that is up-to date and does the best presentation of what it offers.
So why have flat designs become so popular? The reason for this is simple: flat designs do keep visitors on the page and bring them joy of browsing. For this purpose they employ clear-cut layouts and comprehensive navigation.

The messaging phenomenon that is WhatsApp celebrates its 5th year this November. It has been quite the five years for the U.S. based application with substantial growth in that time frame. WhatsApp was set up by Jan Koum and Brian Acton, both former Yahoo! employees with a major emphasis on privacy and function over revenue.
The founders have always made very clear their opinions on the whole area of privacy and advertising. They don’t make any advertising revenue and despite selling the company to Facebook, they are still maintaining this stance today. WhatsApp make their money from sign-ups (once off) and their app offers users the ability to send and receive text messages, images and video over their smartphones.
