But now there is the last and the most important question - how to design attractive VR content and what should you consider when you create it? Be ready to reveal the secret! Explore the equipment First, you must determine what do you create VR content for? Will it be created for desktop or mobile devices? If you are still at a crossroads, you'd better read reviews about it in order to make a decision what will be the most optimal option for your market. Study the software If you are not a skillful specialist in virtual reality app development, you will have to learn all the nuances of this sphere. VR content is usually developed on the basis of Unreal Engine or Unity game engines. These engines allow users to create VR games, applications and other animated 2D and 3D content. But it would be preferable if you find an experienced development company that will do this job to show you how the high-quality product looks like. But even if you don't know what software to choose for VR development, keep in mind that Unity VR development is leading the way today. What should you consider in the process of the VR content development? Give your users freedom of action.

  8. How to create pandora, steps to think through If you are, just like me, a huge fan of Pandora and think about radio app development, you need to think over the next issues, which may cause difficulties. That’s why I recommend you to take a minute and make a plan to solve them. Critical issues in radio app development Licence Creating a Pandora clone it can become a real problem if you haven’t thought about it. Remember our giants Spotify and Pandora, even they find it rather expensive to stream music all over the world. So, the first what you need to contemplate about is where your application will be available. Then investigate how much you’ll have to pay for the music licence and will your app income cover such expenditures. Then reconsider, maybe there is a point to change the region? Anyway, never start development before you have solved a licence issue! Streaming The other topical question is developing music apps like Pandora is where you will stream the music from, what database you will use and where you are going to store this vast amount of data. Instead of buying tonnes of hardware, it is more sensible to use a cloud to host your server and all data. What is also is needed to be taken into account is the technology you want to use to implement a streaming feature. You can use WEBRTC technology like we did in our social dating app for dogs owners YouMustLoveDogs to implement video conference feature. Or you can stream with RTMP protocol, like we did in our video streaming app Iboga, that streams vids to your Facebook friends. The options are numerous. The choice depends on the streaming speed you want to achieve, devices you want your app to be compatible with, the territory your app will work at and many other factors. Anyway, the technology you choose for your radio like Pandora dictates the architecture you’ll need to build. Design The mobile design matters in every project. Yet, you shouldn’t miss a fact that music apps have always been a little bit different and its outlook matters a lot. Without a professional designer or a team such, your app will look out-of-date and primitive. If you need some inspiration check our Dribbble or Behance. Cleveroad radio app design Monetization strategy Monetization strategy has to be also considered before the development stage. There are lots of options even if your app will be free. If we look back to Pandora and Spotify monetization way, we can find the benefits and drawbacks in each. Pandora’s Premium account doesn’t have many outstanding features. The functionality is basically the same and to be honest I don’t understand why I should pay money for it. At the same time, free account is crammed with ads and it annoys pretty often. Spotify’s doesn’t have much ads, and a Premium account has lots of fun features, yet the price for it is high. Recommendation engine It's not only the most important issue, actually it's the icing on a cake. It will determine the mode how your app will figure out what song to offer to a listener. There are two variants how your system would do recommendations to users: collaborative filtering algorithm and content-based algorithm. Collaborative filtering algorithm uses rating history of all users. Such algorithm will offer you the most popular song in one or another genre. Content-based algorithm suggests songs similar to those which listener liked. As you remember, Pandora Radio app uses 400 criteria of each song, which were determined by people. It’s obvious that now we have more technologies to perform the task much faster and without manual work. The easiest and the most effective way to create radio app like Pandora with such a system, is to use neural network libraries, which you can use for free as they are open source. What are the necessary Pandora app features? The next step when you develop an app like Pandora radio would be a functionality set, which you want to see in your product. Our advice is to start with a Minimum Viable Product. An MVP product is easier to build and it has more chances to sustain on the market. Moreover, it will save your time, money and help persuade investors that your business idea is awesome. Considering how to make a music app like Pandora don’t forget to include the minimal set of functionality, like registration feature. You have to decide how your users will log in, via email, phone number or social media. A user should have an ability to create a playlist (in Pandora Radio app they are called radios). A search engine is a must in your app. Even if the engine won’t find the exact song or band, like in Pandora but it is needed to find a category of songs which the app will offer to a user. Social sharing nowadays is a feature that has to be in any app. The feature encourages a person to share their preferences with friends and it works as free advertisement and brings more publicity to your application. Likes/dislikes are needed to detect songs that a user would appreciate. This is how the system interacts with a user and analyses druthers of a listener. Music streaming feature. In-app-purchase is an optional feature for in case you want a user to buy songs via the app. Look also How To Make a Music App Like Pandora, Step-by-Step Guide With Detailed Estimation
  9. How to include a voice assistant in an app There are three ways to make your app understand verbal language and keep up a conversation. The first method The first method involves integrating existing voice technologies into your application by means of special APIs and other development tools. The second method The second method allows you to build an intelligent assistant with the help of open source services and APIs. The third method The third method stands for the development of a voice assistant from scratch with its further integration into your application. Each method is worthy of attention. Note that the big names like Apple or Google reluctantly offer their beloved creations to the third-party developers. On the other hand, using open source tools may not meet your expectations. Also, developing apps like Siri on your own may become an impossible task. To clarify all the benefits and risks you are going to encounter, let's consider each approach in details. Common ways to integrate your app with a virtual assistant The best virtual assistants and their integration in an app Siri, Google Now, and Cortana are the world-known names. Of course, there are many more mobile assistant apps on the shelves of app stores. You can check out a comprehensive list here. However, we are going to focus on the three technologies mentioned above because, according to the MindMeld research, they are preferred by the majority of users. Siri If you ever studied Siri, you certainly noticed that it was unavailable for most of the third-party applications. With iOS 10 release, the situation has changed a lot. At WWDC 2016, it was announced that Siri can be integrated with the apps that work in the following areas: Audio and video calls Messaging and contacts Payments via Siri Photos search Workout Car booking To enable the integration, Apple's introduced a special SiriSDK that consists of two frameworks. The first one covers the range of tasks to be supported in your app, and the second one advises on a custom visual representation when one of the tasks is performed. Each of the app types above defines a certain range of tasks which are called intents. The term refers to the users' intentions and, as a result, to the particular scenarios of their behavior.

It used to be a headache for all entrepreneurs of the previous generations since the process of money transferring was not quick. Furthermore, people had to spend more money on their monetary transactions due to high percents for transfer. That is why fintech startups also found their market niche.
