Why iOS is Better Than Android

 Reasons why iOS is better than android however entrepreneurs couldn’t  decide alone which platform to opt for i.e. which one will be more advantages to them in attracting the end users and keeping them hooked. While they leave the task of deciding it to the development companies, there are certain factors considering which can help themselves to decide the same.

The competition between the two giant platforms iOS and Android is inevitable with iOS grasping more of the market share in Australia, and other advanced countries. So, here’s a list of the core reasons behind why Apple apps are in the first place.

#1  App quality

First of all, iOS apps are more businesslike and sophisticated ones. The iOS platform provides an unparalleled experience to the users in the niches, like health, media, food-delivery, personal utilities, games, which are now the mainstays of the app industry.


#2 Win-win market statistics

Not only from the technical point of view, demographics tell us about the winning situation of the iOS apps. No doubt, both are in a neck-and-neck race, iOS users statistics are more appealing with more percentage of young-age users, greater engagement rate, more income, and greater technical skills/higher education. So, obviously, iOS users will be spending more time on an app.

#3 Agile Development speed

It has always been a prime concern for app owners that how fast their app can reach the market, iOS takes much less time. Simply put, iOS app does not have to pass through the meticulous system release cycles, called fragmentation. Android apps go through it, as they are targeted to an array of devices running on the OS, with huge differences in the screen sizes, device performance and specialities.

#4 More consumer acceptance

If you consider the revenue models of both the platforms, then definitely Android gives a stiff competition to iOS. It has a greater proportion of Ad-sponsored app while iOS apps depend primarily on the purchases. Although iOS app’s revenue relies predominantly on payments by users, they still manage to grab more revenue because of higher Indexed consumed spend.


#5 Advanced features-set of iOS devices

The features or functionalities, available on the Android devices are surely not comparable with that of iPhones and iPad. The advanced features-set of iOS devices coupled with great storage capacity and fast processing speed, take the functioning of the app to a whole new level.



Apparently, from the business perspective, if you are considering to embark on your app business, then go for iOS platform. Not only the development is less complex and will take less time to reach the market, iPhone/iPad apps are easy-to-use and run smoothly, giving users a greater satisfaction.

Managed Service Provider

Managed Service Provider, also known as MSP  is a service provided by IT companies to small and medium-sized business, and sometimes large organizations, governments and non-profits. It is applicable in instances where by the businesses do not have full-time in-house IT staff members.

A MSP either charges on an annual basis or a monthly recurring fee. There is usually a service level agreement (SLA) that is tied to the contract. The contract is well detailed with a list of all items and tasks to be included. Tasks list might include as 24×7 network monitoring of servers, desktop, laptops and endpoint devices. It will also specify other items and how they are to be fixed. It includes hours of operation such as typical Mondays to Friday’s business hours or a 24×7 support will be included in the contract. Depending on the terms and conditions spelled out in the contract the service provider may also include repairing any issues that arise, patching of devices to keep them updated and monitoring the system. www.kemnet.co.ke

MSP provides a great value for money by being proactive in fixing issues before they occur. MSP assists in optimizing the IT environment to prevent and lessen the need for regular break/fix issues. Mostly MSP provides remote services. Issues are monitored and fixed remotely using a Remote Monitoring and Management system (RMM). MSP has access to the environment and regularly monitors it and is better prepared for any emergency issues that may arise.

MSP have skilled technicians in Level 1, 2 and 3 that assist with the IT tasks and are better placed to fix arising IT issues. The MSP provides different billable rate for each technician that is assigned to work on any given issue. Businesses can benefit from the use of  MSP greatly by not having to deal with the day-to-day operation and tedious tasks are required for their IT infrastructure.

Quantum Internet

Quantum Internet tends to get people hyped up about everything attached to it. While not every quantum invention elicits a positive response. Well, in this case, mention of it, should get people excited.

What you need to know about the Q A


In the simpler terms, a quantum internet is one that uses quantum signals in place of radio waves to send vital information. The internet uses radio frequencies to connect various computers. Through a global web in which electronic signals. In a quantum internet, signals are sent via a quantum network using entangled quantum particles. Following Einstein works titled “spooky action at a distance,” entangled particles depict quantum teleportation. Which exist in a special state that allows information carried in one to be instantaneously reflected in another.
It’s unlikely that internet users will be using the quantum internet to update their social media feed. Regular internet communication is enough and doesn’t make any sense to communicate quantum mechanically.

The quantum internet is vital, at sending information securely. Through, quantum cryptography or quantum encryption, people are able to send “unhackable” information over a quantum network. Quantum cryptography uses a mechanic called quantum key distribution (QKD). This means an encrypted message and its keys are separately sent. Tampering with it causes it to be automatically destroyed, with both the sender and the receiver notified of the situation.

A quantum internet has the ability to speed up access to a working quantum computer by putting quantum computing in the cloud. A regular personal computer could transmit or access quantum-encrypted information through this cloud-based quantum computer. You could send “unhackable” emails. Users do not want to send their information classically, where it could be eavesdropped

There is a great probability of quantum internet becoming a specialized branch of the regular internet.

Domain Name In Kenya

Online Presence

A domain name consists of easy to remember words that control the internet. It is formed by procedures and rules of the Domain Name System also known as DNS. Domain Name System is what translates the names and words into an IP address. This means that any name registered in the Domain Name System is a Domain Name.

Domain names are used in different networking contexts, addressing purposes and application-specific naming.  Ideally a Domain Name represents an Internet Protocol (IP) resource, for example, a personal computer that is used to access the Internet, web site, a server computer hosting a web site, or any other service communicated via the Internet.

Domain names are structured in subdomains (subordinate levels) of the Domain Name System root domain, which remains nameless. The first-level set of domain names are the top-level domains (TLDs), they include generic  top-level domains , like  the prominent domains comnet, infoedu, and org, and includes the country code top-level domains (ccTLDs).

Below these top-level domains in the DNS hierarchy are the second-level and third-level domain names that are typically open for reservation by end-users who wish to connect local area networks to the Internet, create other publicly accessible Internet resources or run web sites.

The registration of these domain names is usually administered by domain name registrars who sell their services to the public.
