Suggested January 2024 Bloomberg Android App: Finally, It’s Been Launched!

We must confess that we’ve been waiting for the Bloomberg’s android version for quite a long time. The app was already launched on iPhone, iPad blackberry and even Nokia, but android users have had an unfair long wait, to say. But that’s all history since, it’s finally here. So let’s explore it a little bit.

User Interface

First of all, we are pretty impressed with how easy on eyes this app is. Using a moderate back background for white text with orange titles, the app has surely avoided putting any strain on eyes while retaining it’s beauty. On the right top, there is an edit button, which allows you to select the news categories of your choice — once you’re through with ticking the relevant ones, the app updates itself for the your selection. The category drop-down menu interface is application wide, so it’s fairly easy to navigate through any screen of the app.

Tap a particular headline to read its full content. Once you’ve opened the full article, notice the two arrows on the left top, which basically let you navigate to next and previous article from that screen only without going back. Also, on the right hand side on the top is the ‘send’ option that allows you to send the article as text via Bluetooth or as email, using Gmail app.

2. Markets

Market’s tab displays the markets into four categories: Equity Indices, Commodities, Bonds and Currencies. Browse through the category and listing under it the same way you surfed the main page. All the stuff you are used to looking for is here.

3. My Stocks

My Stocks tab displays your stocks. You have big customization part here if you’re planning to use this app for maintaining your stock portfolio. Hit the ‘edit’ button on the top left to manage stocks — add, delete, add info, etc.

4. Stock Finder

Stock Finder tab opens up a search panel where you can search about any stock to get more details about it. Type in the name of the stock and hit ‘search’. List of stocks matching your query will show up. Code of the stock along with the country code are displayed on the left side while the full name of the company is shown against it. It’s easy to identify your stock, no matter from where you are.

Tap on your stock to get full info about it. The stock info page gives the current quote of the stock with day’s price as high and low, volume and date. Then, 52 week info about the stock is available with chart, high price, low price, P/E (Price Equity Ratio) and market capitalization.


Other info on the stock page includes related news and company’s brief. Tap the ‘related news’ to get all the recent news that involved the company.


Press the menu key on your phone on any screen of the app to get the same two options: About and Refresh. Well, the about will give details about the app itself while refresh will simply refresh the page on which you hit this option.

It’s Time To Seriously Assess Your Mobile App Strategy

As an increasing number organizations look to mobile solutions for long-term success, many have made embracing digital business a top priority. By offering services via a mobile platform or application, businesses are able to capture larger market shares, increase revenues and exceed customer expectations. In fact, according to a 2014 article in Forbes, organizations that optimize their mobile app strategy will engender customer loyalty by providing greater visibility and value to customers, improve customer engagement and will be better placed to stand out from the competition. At the same time, organizations that utilize mobile apps internally will be able to increase employee satisfaction and productivity.

Assessing a Mobile App Strategy

Businesses should first determine what the need is among its employees and customers. What common complaints or issues is the app going to address? If there’s not a glaring issue, there may be something that either employees or customers need to do that can be made easier by using an app. Ultimately, the mobile app strategy should be designed to mobilize employees’ job functions and not simply to replace a desktop application that already works well. The mobile strategy should make employees more productive by enabling them to easily access, input and make sense of company data.

As the app market grows, part of a company’s mobile app strategy should involve protecting its data and ramping up security measures. According to the Frost & Sullivan report, more than 35 percent of organizations already consider employee use of unauthorized apps to be a problem. Employees without app offerings from their employers may look at third-party, unapproved apps to meet their needs, opening the door for hackers to gain access to sensitive information. According to a 2014 report from Gartner, this is a serious problem, as more than 75 percent of mobile apps will fail security tests this year. Organizations that create their own apps can manage the security of their devices and better safeguard against data breaches.

At this stage, organizations should undertake an audit of their data security mechanisms and policies that they have in place to ensure that security concerns are not introduced. Any organization deploying mobile apps should include their use in its mobile security policy, which must be clearly communicated to users and should ensure that one person has overall accountability in this area. As part of the mobile security policy, businesses should stress that it is required to use highly secure mobile devices that support a mobile security platform.

Once mobile app requirements have been established, the next step is to develop, purchase or customize apps to meet the needs of the business. Not only is ease-of-use important, but those in charge should determine what devices and operating systems the apps need to run on and what back-end integration is required. Additionally, it is important to develop a strategy to manage the life cycle of all mobile apps, including ongoing maintenance to ensure that they remain current, effective and secure.

Consider External Assistance

Few organizations that do not have some level of mobile device usage will be able to keep up with competition. With this in mind, all companies would benefit from assessing their mobile app strategies sooner rather than later, especially as the range of mobile devices grows and wearables become commonplace.

Although It’s Been Said Many Times, Many Ways: The Ipad Is The Future

After a weekend using the iPad, I’ve realized I’m not interested in hedging my reaction to it with careful considerations of its lack of a USB port or webcam. It’s not every day, or every year or maybe even every decade that we’re able to see a piece of technology that takes a familiar human experience–here, using a computer–and fundamentally changes it. But that is what I think the iPad has done.

The Screen

It starts from the moment you pick it up and that obsidian black pool comes to life. On paper it’s not by any means the highest-resolution screen at 1024×768 spread over 9.7 inches of diagonal glass. Many netbooks pack a higher resolution into the same size. But somehow, it manages to be the most breathtaking screen I’ve ever seen. Maybe because there’s basically nothing else–an inch of black glass bezel surrounds it, rimmed by a thin lip of aluminum, but from the front that’s it. All screen. And its saturation and clarity is astounding.

And oh yeah, you can touch it. You can touch everything, and it reacts instantly. It’s fast. The glass feels cool and smooth on your finger, but after a while you’re not touching glass. You’re touching words, pictures, buttons, everything. The Internet. And everything responds.

Plenty of words have been written about the iPad’s touchscreen interface, and I can pretty much guarantee that none of them will mean anything to you until you use it. It just can’t be expressed. On paper it’s just a giant iPod touch. Yes, I’ve heard that a few times, even said it myself. But then it’s in your hand and you’re gliding your finger over your favorite websites, panning around the globe with your pinkie tip in Google Maps, feeling like a CIA analyst manning some future spy satellite terminal. It’s one brainstem-level pleasure after another; it reacts to some base human instinct to touch and manipulate something shiny put in front of us, and well, we can’t really argue with the brain stem, can we?

And that’s why it changes everything. The layers of abstraction are gone, and we’re interacting with graphical information in the most natural way possible. Apple’s unrelenting focus on simplicity means everything but the touch drops away.

Nothing But Interface

Think about it–on your computer, interfaces are stacked inside each other like a Russian doll. The web site you’re looking at sits inside the browser, which sits inside a folder, which sits inside your operating system. Each interface has its own set of conceits and constraints, meaning the resulting experienced is subject to a great many rules dictating what it can and can’t be. But that’s not how it is on the iPad. There, a weather app adopts the perfect interface for browsing weather information–pinch and zoom on the giant world radar map; tap the forecast and current conditions blocks for more detailed pop-ups. You touch and it responds. And that’s just weather.

The Future of Software is Becoming the Future of Hardware

Like the iPhone, the iPad is a blank slate ready to morph into any device with any interface imaginable. It’s a million gadgets in one, with each able to express itself with the perfect interface. The hardware is designed to fade into the background, so in a way, developers are conjuring their software into tangible, concrete things that act, essentially, as hardware. The list of physical real word objects the iPhone has made irrelevant: cheap pocket digital camera, GPS navigator, e-reader, voice recorder, bicycle computer, iPod–the list goes on. The iPad, with a screen four times the size, will only make this list longer.

iPad Back

Using the iPad on the Toilet

Is so, so great. Apple’s case with its wedge-shaped lap stand is an essential tool here.

With a Keyboard

For more proof of how this is the future, connect any Bluetooth keyboard. Immediately, Apple’s Pages (the significance of which I’ve already written about) becomes the coolest word processor I’ve ever used. A word processor? Cool? But with Words and a wireless keyboard, you can enter text just like we’ve been doing for generations, and see it appear on a blank white screen. Then pick up this screen, turn it vertically, and add pictures and other formatting with your fingers. Touch a misspelled word and pick the proper correction. Even after a few days, I already know this is how I want to create anything made of pictures and text in the future.

I’m Typing on the iPad RIGHT NOW

I wasn’t going to honor the cliche of typing a review of a device on the device itself, but now that I paired up a Bluetooth keyboard i had in the cupboard, I can’t help myself.

Going From an iPad Back to an iPhone It’s not Perfect

Believe it or not, a gadget can change computing forever but still have flaws. Shocking, I know! Almost all of the gripes over what the iPad lacks miss the point, but the one that’s spot on? The iPad needs multitasking.

Not the multitasking we’re used to on the desktop computer. No task bar, no ctrl-alt-delete. Just a small, elegant way to tell us when we have a new IM or email while we’re reading Twitter or playing a game. The ability to let apps that play music continue to play it while we do other things.

Without this, one of the internet’s fundamental forms of communication–the instant message–is basically impossible on the iPad. This thing is supposed to replace the laptop you keep open while you watch TV at home, right? Well, what you do on that laptop is keep 12 browser tabs open and four Google Chat windows, responding to them at your leisure. Not possible on the iPad.

Something like Android’s pull-down notifications drawer would work. In fact, the iPad’s interface already hints at this–when a song is playing in the iPod app, you get a little play icon in the ever-present black strip at the top. It’s less than a centimeter thick, but that’s all it needs to be. Apple, open up that area to the SDK and let apps notify you of things there–with the iPad’s increased screen real estate, it’s time to turn the iPhone’s fairly puny background notification system into something truly usable.

Without it, I find myself flying around from app to app at an exhausting pace. Ironically, Apple’s rigid focus on apps performing one task at a time that actually, I think, reduces the focus you’re able to give any one app on the screen. I’d love to read Moby Dick on the iPad for free, but, NEW EMAIL! Someone has to have replied to my wittily provocative tweet on Queequeg’s mark by now, RIGHT? Tap tap tap. Book interrupted.

Do You Need an iPad?

No. As many others have pointed out, it’s just another device. But you/I didn’t need an iPod when they first came out either. When the iPod debuted, I was content to connect a tape deck to my computer to record the dozen or so MP3s I could suck down from Napster through my 56k modem during any given month. I just didn’t see the need because I didn’t have thousands of MP3s. The content environment was not yet ready.

Do we “need” an iPod today? We still don’t. But MP3s are now a much larger part of our lives than they were in 2001 (which, of course, the iPod is partly responsible for). The buying question has changed from “do you want to listen to your music portably in this new digital format” to “do you want to listen to your music portably.” What will the iPad’s similar commodity be? Until that’s defined, no one needs one. But my guess is that it won’t be long until touch-based apps move from novelty to necessity.

In Closing

The iPad is not without problems, some of which have the potential to make the Internet a less happy place than it is now. Yes, Apple’s well-documented closed system via iTunes. Apple is turning into a monopolistic recreation of the Hollywood studio system in the 1940s: if you need something done right, you work with us and no one else. But even then, there was more than one major studio. Not now.

This is bad. But fortunately for Apple, it’s bad in a way that creates an unbelievably pure and easy user experience on the iPad. (For more on this, see Joel Johnson responding beautifully to the closed system crowd).

The iPad presents a computing philosophy that not everyone agrees with: unrelenting simplicity at the cost of openness. But it’s hard to argue it’s not a perfect execution of that philosophy.

How To Fix ‘This App Has Been Blocked For Your Protection’ Error

The ‘This app has been blocked for your protection’ prompt appears when your system’s list of trusted authorities does not include the digital signature of the app. It is a security feature to protect your system from harm but your system can also block apps due to the improper configuration of services. 

These normally appear as bugs in a system or an insider build. You can debug this issue by installing system updates as soon as they are available. Updating OS also updates root certificates, and new digital signatures may become authorized.

If you encounter the error even with an updated OS, you need to apply the possible solutions below.

The most common reason for the error is the Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode policy being enabled on your system. This way, if an app doesn’t have a valid digital signature or Publisher, your system won’t allow you to open it.

However, you may also encounter the error on default programs if there’s some issue with your OS. If your system is fully updated but you get the error on apps you don’t think will harm your system, you can temporarily disable the above policy to run the app.

Open Run by pressing Win + R.

Type gpedit.msc and press Enter to launch the Local Group Policy Editor.

Check Disabled and hit Ok.

Open Run.

Type regedit and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.

Navigate to ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem

Note: If you are part of a domain or connected to a school/work account, you need to contact the admin and have them make the necessary changes for your user account or computer.

If you encounter this error while trying to open the MMC snap-ins like the Device Manager, Local Security Policy Editor, etc., it’s likely because a different policy is restricted from the Group Policy. Similar to the above case, you need to enable it to resolve the error. If you are part of a domain, you need to make these changes on the GPO relevant to your local computer instead.

Open the Local Group Policy Editor.

Restart your PC and check if the error persists.

It is possible to launch the file using the elevated Command Prompt to bypass the error. To do so,

Then, Open Run.

Type cmd and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open the Elevated Command Prompt.

Press Enter to run the file.

Windows Defender SmartScreen is another security feature to protect your system, which can block your apps. We don’t recommend disabling it, but you can do so if you believe the application it is blocking to be harmless.

However, make sure to re-enable this feature when you stop using the app.

Open Settings by pressing Win + I and go to Privacy & security.

Then, open the file showing the “This app has been blocked” prompt and check if you can launch it this time.

Your system will block any files you download from the internet directly. Depending on your user account control settings, this blockage can lead to the above error message. You need to unblock the file from its properties to resolve the issue.

Go to the file that shows this error.

Select it and press Alt + Enter to open its Properties.

Near the bottom of the General tab, you will see an unchecked Unblock box.

Some applications will update their digital signatures after they are expired. So, make sure to update the application to the latest version. If no later updates are available, you need to report the error to the manufacturer. In the meantime, you can use alternative applications.

Also, sometimes the app can contain bugs that make your system mistake its digital signature as unauthorized. You need to uninstall and then reinstall it in such a scenario. We recommend reinstalling the latest version to perform both tasks at the same time.

Launch the Run command.

Type appwiz.cpl and press Enter to open Programs and Features.

Then download the latest installer from the official website and install the program.

Your system uses Cryptographic services to verify the digital signature of your apps. So, you need to make sure this service is running properly.

Open Run.

Type services.msc and press Enter to open Windows Services.

Then, open Run again.

Type powershell and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open Windows PowerShell in Admin mode.

Enter the following commands:

Stop-Service cryptsvc

Rename-Item -Path "C:WindowsSystem32catroot2" -NewName catroot2.old

By default, your system will automatically update root certificates when it encounters an untrusted source or during a system update. However, you may have unknowingly disabled such a setting. To check and enable this setting,

Open the Local Group Policy Editor.

Restart your PC to apply the policy.

If you suddenly started experiencing this error on a previously accessible application, you can try restoring your system to an appropriate restore point. This method will remove all the errors that occurred afterward.

Open the Run dialog box.

Select a suitable restore point and follow the on-screen instructions.

Needunow: Urgent Alerts App For Iphone And Android

Meet NeedUNow – SOS app for iPhone and Android – that’s designed to let you send/receive alerts in emergencies overriding silent mode. Perfect for the times when you want your voice to get heard immediately. Let’s dig a little deeper into the app to discover what’s more it’s got under the wraps!

NeedUNow App Review – Send/Receive Emergency Alerts At All Hazards

Simple Design Language That Keeps Learning Curve Minimal

“NeedUNow” sports a simple design language that ensures there is less learning curve. Thus, getting a hang of the app and its features remain straightforward.

The app features just a couple of tabs at the bottom: Contacts and Alerts. While the Contacts tab allows you to quickly access all of your authorized contacts, the Alerts tab lets you check out both the sent and received audio alerts.

There is a menu at the top left corner of the screen, which allows you to access many features including your profile and code. What’s more, you can also choose to silence alerts for specific hours based on your needs. This feature can come into play when you want to have some peace of mind away from the alerts.

Though I’m fond of rich design language, I’m always ready to trade it with clutter-free UI provided it simplifies the experience. So, I don’t have any complaint with NeedUNow’s simple user-interface as it feels familiar right from the outset.

Send and Receive Audible Alert Even When Do Not Disturb is ON

The highlight of this app is the ability to send/receive audible alerts even when Do Not Disturb or silent mode is on. Situations where your friend, family member or anyone is not picking up your calls or paying attention to your urgent messages, this feature can rescue you.

To get started, you can head into the Contacts tab. And then, you can add a contact to send and receive alerts with that person.

You will need to enter a user’s code so that he/she can send you audible alerts. Once you have entered the code, that user will appear in your contact list and can send you audible alerts.

Moreover, you can also share your code with the person you want to alert. After the receiver has entered your code, he/she will begin to appear in your contact list.

It’s worth noting that the codes are valid for just three days. And, they can be used just once. The freemium version of the app allows you to alert two contacts for free. If you want to get rid of the limitation, you will have to upgrade to the premium version.

Price and Availability

NeedUNow app is available for free so that you can try it out without having to shell out any bucks. But keep in mind, the freemium version of the app is limited. And if you want to use all of its features without any restrictions, you will have to subscribe to the premium version ($0.99/month for standard and $4.99/month.)

As for the compatibility, the app works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 11 or later. The Android variant of the app supports Android 7 and later.

Download for iPhone ( Currently the App is Under Maintenance )

The Verdict: A Life-Saving Asset for Everyone

From what I can tell, NeedUNow can be immensely helpful for everyone including families, caregivers, medical staff, and businesses. The app works as expected since there are no quirks or complexities. Moreover, it’s pretty simple to set up so that anyone (not least those who aren’t tech-savvy) can fine-tune it to send/receive emergency alerts. And it’s this aspect that has appealed to me the most in the app.
