Once again, AirAsia is finding bigger and better ways to advance and improve their services through the use of technology. Truly a testament to the company’s commitment to making customer service and convenience top priority.
AirAsia is working with Google Cloud to integrate machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) into every aspect of its business and culture as part of its transformation into a travel technology company.
It’s a common concern among mobile users and a question we normally ask ourselves — “How much data have I consumed already?”
It’s normal for us to be cautious and watchful of our consumed data because we don’t want to end up using more than necessary or going beyond our allotted budget. But up until now, it’s been quite difficult to look for an application that can accurately keep track of our mobile data usage.
Globe realizes this need which is the very reason they have finally come up with an app that will not only keep our usage in check, but provide so much more than that.
There’s no doubt a vast majority of smartphone users are on the Android operating system. And the huge number of apps on the Google Play Store, 1.3 million and growing to be exact, is a testament to the incredible market developers have on this highly successful platform.
It’s no different here in the Philippines. Android is immensely popular. The selection of devices are only outnumbered by the number of apps Filipinos download for their phones.
One major concern, though, is that not everyone has a credit/debit card which is one major mode of payment when you wish to purchase a paid app on the Google Play Store. In fact, according to the CIA Fact Book in 2013, only 4% of Pinoys own credit cards. Wow. So, people end up settling for free apps not realizing how awesome a lot of those premium paid apps are.
Apart from my super favorite GCash, Globe Telecom has come up with an ingenious mode of payment paving the way for Android users to be able to enjoy premium apps by purchasing them with absolute ease.
Ok… this may be new to some and old news, perhaps, to others. We all know that at present, all MyPhone Android devices cannot be upgraded to the latest version via OTA (Over The Air). But do not be discouraged…
Did you know that you can easily bring your MyPhone devices to the nearest Sony Service Center to have your smartphone’s Android OS upgraded?
For example… if you’re using a MyPhone A919 Duo running on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich version, you can have it upgraded to Jelly Bean.
Eventually, MyPhone devices will have the capability to automatically upgrade via OTA. But for now, heading to their service centers shouldn’t be a problem for anyone wanting to have the latest version of the Android OS.
