    Smartphones and businesses

    Hey Guys!

    Me again. I was just wondering what you collectively know about the way that smartphones integrate with businesses. Where is the data that certain apps pull about them stored? For example, if I have an app that displays all the pubs in my area, where is the app getting that information from? Is there any codified way that businesses do this ?

    Bumping just in case... this was moved from another forum! Really hope there's some experts out there that can help me out. I wanted to add a couple of things onto this post also, I'm VERY new to this scene, and I'm not even sure where to start if I wanted to build an application. I'm learning Javascript at the moment and so would like to keep my applications confined (in the majority) to that language, so if anyone could give a newbie some advice on where to go from here, that would be great. Just to let you know, it's not like I haven't been doing any research of my own, I've been busting my balls learning javascript and learning about a world of apps and programming languages I've never really been interested in before , but like I say, I'm here to get opinions of people who've been doing this a lot longer! Thanks in advance!

    In any app which tries to find information like that, it needs to have an integration with a third party. Local data like pubs, resturants, ATMs and others, can be fetched from these third parties like Google Place, FourSquare etc. They provide Rest APIs which can be fed to mobile apps.

    If the restaurant is registered with the third party that has been integrated with the smartphone, then it will show as a search result. If it is not registered, then it will not come as a search result.

    If the app is made by a company which has its own database, then the smartphone will be integrated to its own information. There is no codified way of showing information on searches like these.

    For apps of this nature, you'll want to learn database programming, such as MySQL and PHP. The Javascript feature-set isn't extensive enough - database is the way to go.

    Smartphones and businesses

    Hiii
    If you’re a small business owner, you can now access some very important information on the way to your office. With your smartphone you now have visibility into your company’s finances, access to important documents, communicating internally or externally, and the ability to track your customer support cases.
    A few small business apps that can help your business moved:-
    With Evernote, not only will your business have a decent document editing program, you’ll be able to share almost anything between as many computers as you need. Easily take snapshots or record audio of things you find online and share them with as many or as few employees as needed.
