"Intel” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its popular segment, Biz Report, that takes a look at small, medium, and large businesses around the world that are making waves in their industry. Guest host and technology expert, Scott Steinberg, conducted the report and shared with viewers how Intel has partnered with software companies around the globe to build applications optimized for Android and Windows 8 tablets with Intel Atom processors.
According to Pew Research, as of September of 2013, 35 percent of Americans owned a tablet, a ten percent increase from the previous year. Tablets represent the fusion of a laptop and a mobile device, providing easy functionality and access.
Intel works with software partners around the world to develop apps for Android and Windows 8 tablets with Intel Atom processors. They provide software showcases so end users get a “sneak peak” preview of an app before downloading it.
The iHeartRadio app that’s featured on Intel’s Tablet showcase is an all-in-one free app that allows users to listen to their favorite live stations from anywhere in the country or create their own station from more than 18 million songs and 450,000 artists. iHeartRadio also has an activity-based recommendation system that offers listeners stations that are “Perfect For” any mood or occasion. It’s an incredibly powerful app that is widely considered one of the best streaming apps on the market.
Another hot app is ooVoo, a video chat and messaging app that is a featured partner on the Android showcase. With ooVoo, users can make free group video calls with up to 12 friends and family members, voice calls, send video messages and text chats. ooVoo works on 3G, 4G, LTE and Wifi.
