Installing the app directly from the play store provides users with a quicker and easier download of the app. It also gives the user automatic notifications when a new version of the app is released or when an upgrade is available.

Apps at Barclays

The retail arm of Barclays bank is creating an internal app store for its staff to use to download apps, which will let them carry out core business functions and network with one another.

It's for business-focused apps that employees need for their daily activities, but also for internal social networking and collaboration.

The app store will also be used by various layers of the organisation, including customer-facing staff.

Many of the tasks that happen in the front line of the bank are app-oriented. They are specialised tasks like applying for a mortgage or a credit card.


Kheradpir said the firm cannot upload the apps to Google's or Apple's existing app stores due to security concerns.

PC Shipments Continue to Grow in EMEA in Q3 2014

According to IDC, PC shipments in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) reached 23.7 million units in the third quarter of 2014 — a 10.4% increase year on year and a clear return to growth for two consecutive quarters after a difficult 2013.

The regional growth was mainly driven by the mature markets of Western Europe. During the quarter consumer demand heavily contributed to an overall increase in portable PC shipments, which posted growth of 13.5%, supported by back-to-school shipments and preparations for the Christmas season as well as attractive price offerings of notebooks with Windows 8.1+ Bing. During the same period, desktop PC shipments increased 5.2%. In Western Europe, market trends were similar to the previous quarter, with shipments increasing 22.7%. As forecast, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) remained impacted by the unstable political and economic situation in Russia and by currency fluctuations, leading to a decline of 9%, while the Middle East and Africa (MEA) was more positive with a 2.1% increase. The increase in total EMEA shipments confirms the rebound in the market and strong renewals on the consumer and enterprise side, but this is still not a recovery as volumes remain below those shipped in previous strong years.
