Calculate Mobile Advertising ROI With Google Calculator

 Google Develops Calculator To Help Advertisers Tabulate Mobile ROI 

Google has introduced an online calculator to help marketers figure out ‘The Full Value of Mobile,’ as well as case studies and tips. The microsite shows five different categories related to mobile, and videos that show how a brand can monetize them. Visitors can calculate stats like visits related to purchases either manually or by entering Google data to have it done for them. The calculator provides simple equations and benchmarks to help estimate the value that mobile drives for businesses through calls, apps, in-store, mobile site, and cross-device.


Photos Sent To Surprise Users’ Future Selves

Available for free now on iOS, ThrowBack lets you take pictures in the present and then choose a time in the future to send them to yourself or a group of friends. ThrowBack makes it simple: After registering with your email, you take a photo or choose one from your photo album, select a date or a general range of time up to five years and ThrowBack sends you your selected photo to yourself in the future.


Weather Platform Only Displays The Most Crucial Info

When you can’t look outside and assess the weather properly, a new website can pick out only what you need to know and present it in an easy to see format. Forecast is a site, and an app, that just predicts the weather, without extra information that you might find on websites or other avenues for checking the outdoors.
