Apigee's “2013 Digital Impact Survey” of 1,000 smartphone-owners in the U.S. explored how apps are changing day-to-day behaviors and how consumers expect technological changes on the horizon to affect them. The survey findings indicate that mobile apps have changed and continue to change our everyday lives—from the time we wake up (literally), to our relationships, our well-being, how we shop, how we connect with friends, how we bank, take photos, . . .
Last week we were delighted to host several training sessions and workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area and totally thrilled to see such an enthusiastic turnout of thinkers and makers! Over 100 developers attended each session. Huge thanks to everyone who attended and made it such an exciting and engaging experience. We had a blast!

The web is currently moving from text and pictures to video. People often prefer to watch videos rather than read text. The folks at Picovico aim to reduce the barriers to video creation. The Picovico app is available on the web and iPhone, and helps users create video slideshows easily and quickly. We recently talked with the folks at Picovico about their experience analyzing the behavior and performance of their apps using Apigee.
Thanks to those who joined and coded along during this week's webcast. @timanglade demonstrated how to build a store locator app using HTML5 and Adobe PhoneGap, incorporating geolocation and context-aware app features, and deploying easily with Apigee. The recorded webcast, the final code and the finished app are now available.
82% of those surveyed can't go a day without critical apps; 85% admit they would rather give up drinking water than delete all of their mobile apps; 18% of French say they couldn't order dinner without an app. So says our 2013 Mobile App Behavior survey of over 760 smartphone owners across France, Germany, Spain, the U.K. and U.S., conducted online in February by uSamp.
