How Jekalo is using Applozic to help people ride together

Jekalo; a Yoruba phrase for “let’s go” is an app-based, ride-sharing platform which allows users hitch a ride with another user going along a similar route. Users can also offer their rides to fellow users on Jekalo for some cool benefits.

Ride-sharing (also car-sharing or carpooling) is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car. By having more people using one vehicle, ride-sharing reduces each person’s travelling costs such as fuel costs, tolls, and the stress of driving.

Bring communication to apps with MQTT based Applozic Chat SDK

Today version 3 of the Applozic Chat SDK is available, providing developers with a MQTT based leaner, faster and scalable real time messaging SDK.

Since the last time, we launched the SDK, we’ve learned a lot about how developers are using the Applozic messaging sdk and the pitfalls they’ve encountered. This version simplifies the sdk in several ways and also brings new exciting features.

Features

  1. Online/offline presence
  2. ‘Last seen at’
  3. Typing indicator
  4. Unread message count
  5. Offline support

Performance improvements

  1. MQTT protocolMQTT is specifically designed to use bandwidth and batteries sparingly. Using MQTT connection and routing messages through Applozic chat server, we are able to achieve phone-to-phone delivery in the hundreds of milliseconds.
  2. Data caching

Messages and contacts data are now cached at the device side to avoid multiple calls going to server, which not only reduces the bandwidth used by the app but also makes the chat history loading really fast.

Customizable Design

Life is about Moments, So is the Market.

“The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.” -Bill Gates

Consider two irrefutable aspects of human lives that materialize every day:

1. The first is about the human element. We all know some way or the other that life is all about moments. It is lived in moments and moments are what define the existence of any individual.

2. The second pertains to mobile technology. Much has been said about the incredible ways in which smartphones have changed the forms in which humans interact with the outside world. We are spending a significant proportion of our days’ time in the virtual world dealing with real life entities. And interacting with the social circle is merely a part of it. There is a lot out there on the web waiting to be discovered.

What happens when both these aspects concur? We get what Google is now calling ‘Micro-Moments’.

Micro-Moments are “intent-driven” moments when people turn to a mobile platform to find what they need. Internet sessions of a day are basically a sum of these countless mini-sessions of “I-want-to-know, I-want-to-buy, I-want-to-go, and I-want-to-do” moments.

“Future is mobile computing — smartphones and tablets are just elements of it. The industry is on the verge of a whole new paradigm.” — Thorsten Heins

· Of smartphone users, 91% turn to their cellphones for some information while doing any task.  Read More
