The award-winning Hitchin-based radio producer and engineer, Paul Arnold, was facing some tough times twelve months ago when he decided to throw his time, money and energy into creating a unique personalised musical greetings app. Paul brought his skills in audio production, music and interactive projects together to create AcoustiCards, an iPhone and iPad app that seamlessly mixes hundreds of options into its songs. Paul says: "Having an idea for an app, is in many ways, the modern equivalent of having an unfinished novel in a drawer somewhere. To see the smile on people's faces when they get to a line in the song that is perfect for them, that makes it all worthwhile.” The app has launched in time for Christmas, offering a quick, eco-friendly and unusual alternative to the traditional Christmas card, with 10p from every carol card sent donated to the UK charity Music As Therapy. The free AcoustiCards app is available on the Apple App Store now. More info at www.acousticards.com.

As Apple releases the latest version of its pioneering iPhone, the iPhone 5, on Friday, the business world can expect to benefit from its high-speed 4G capability.

This faster internet connection means that businesses will be able to rely more on the mobile phone as a business tool. The combination of the A6 processor with 4G will render the iPhone equally as fast as any broadband internet connection, making it possible to carry out the same tasks whether its user is at home or on the move.

Dan Wagner, CEO of mPowa, who relies on mobile broadband to deliver his service, said, “Its about time the UK progressed into the world of 4G. Our internet connection, be it on mobile or fixed location, has not been as fast as that of other international markets for quite some time now. It will dramatically enhance the competitiveness and efficiency of British companies in this ‘always on – always connected’ business landscape.”

Dan Wagner’s company mPowa is one of the most exciting products to benefit from mobile connectivity. mPowa is a company that has developed an innovative mobile payment device that connects to mobile phones and tablets. It allows the user to make and receive payments on their device easily and simply whilst mobile. It helps small businesses that are priced out of conventional card machines and benefits larger companies by mobilising their sales teams. This service will become even more advantageous with the introduction of 4G as companies will be able to make transactions on the move at high speeds.

Dan continued, “The iPhone 5 is a prime example of mobile devices evolving at an impressive rate that enables businesses to operate much more flexibly. Mobile phones are being used increasingly to accept payments, which will open up new avenues for businesses. In addition, mobile phone companies and software developers are creating apps that capitalise on faster connectivity, and tablets are becoming a more common fixture in business environments. We’re no longer being tied to our desks and with customers expecting a more responsive service, the tools we now have at our disposal will pave the way for better business.”
