Great app for tourism in Japan

One year after Fukushima, tourism is Japan is still struggling. How can we change the way potential tourists see Japan?

Through this app, for instance. Post from Japan makes already existing tourists ambassadors of Japan through Social Media in a new way.

The idea: surfing the internet abroad is expensive, so most of the tourists’ pictures are not uploaded online. The app gives you free internet connection to upload your pictures on Facebook. The more likes you get, the more minutes of free connection.

By the way, it’s just a student case. But still, great idea!


Android first in mobile adv market

In 2010 Android phones sold more than iPhones, but only in early 2011 the advertising market does the same switch – as stated by Millennial Media.

According to Mashable:

Android ad requests grew 141% from Q3 to Q4 of 2010 while Apple requests grew 12% and RIM requests grew 60%.

The data refer to about 80% of US mobile market, but they show a trend quite known.
