ORMOND BEACH, Fla., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile app developer David Richard has recently launched the private beta for his upcoming application JaVu. Built around the concept of geofencing, this top-notch app is capable of functioning as a location aware social network. JaVu users can create a geofence around them, and their followers receive image or text notifications when they enter the geofence. JaVu is capable of finding out connections with a high degree of accuracy while still being battery-safe by using a combination of Wi-Fi positioning, cell tower triangulation, and GPS.

Though these are early days to make any prediction, JaVu does look like a unique application with endless possibilities for the future. This may include finding restaurant reviews, promotion of entertainment events, product listing for a business, and much more. David's plan for the future of JaVu includes augmented reality, location based games, event implementation, deep real estate implementation, and an incredible feature for restaurants.

David is a 22-year-old entrepreneur and application developer who began tinkering with the idea of JaVu and other programming projects approximately 18 months ago. "I have been building the idea in my head for two years, even before I started programming. When Apple released their Reminders app, I wondered how they accomplished reminding people based on their location. That's when I discovered geofencing. I thought it would be incredible for your phone to automatically alert you of location-based social media," David says.

The young developer has moved from fixing iPhones in a flea market to learning the Gamesland Engine, Lua language and the Unity Game Engine. He is currently learning and writing JaVu in the iOS native Objective C language. All of this has occurred over the past year and a half.  He has released several applications on the Apple App store, but JaVu is his biggest project to date.

Currently, JaVu is in private beta, and the creator is looking for more testers. Interested individuals may apply to see how the application works and to help refine the product. Check out http://JaVuApp.com to apply for beta testing or to get the latest news about the application. David is pushing for a mid-March launch.

About David Richard: David Richard is a young entrepreneur, and the creator of JaVu mobile application. Some of David's previously released games are already in the App store. However, JaVu is the first major application created by him.

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers.
