Mobile devices, such as smartphones and others, are used to send text messages, MMS, trade alerts, and advertisements to people across the globe. If event organizers can reach out to at least half of the mobile phone subscribers through advertisements and online promotions, then it is bound to create a positive impact on their event attendance and ticket sales. In addition to various offline and online marketing trends, mobile phone applications can also be used to educate the global audience about your software and solutions. Modern online event management software comes with an integrated mobile phone application, which can benefit the event attendees and new potential customers in a number of ways.

The media industry is one which is directly influenced by the latest technological advances and trends. Though the media itself may not change very much, the way that people choose to receive it is changing constantly.

Since the growth of the internet people have since started to use this as a way of reading or watching the news. Due to its convenience and functionality, this trend is likely to continue.
I tested the free features for the E*Trade Mobile Pro iPhone app in this video. The app itself is free to download, but you must have a E*Trade Pro account to use the majority of the features to trade, analyze stocks and the market, and manage your trading account. There are only 3 main features that are free: market overview with the major indicies (Dow Jones, NASDAQ, S&P 500), News, and customizable watchlists. These are 90% the same as the iPhone stocks app that comes standard with the iPhone and uses Yahoo! finance data. The market data are delayed for those without an E*Trade account.
