  3. 3. QUALCOMM TO LAUNCH SMARTWATCH ON CYBER MONDAY HTTP://WWW.MOBILEMARKETINGMAGAZINE.CO.UK/   Qualcomm to Launch Smartwatch on Cyber Monday Mobile tech firm Qualcomm is launching its own smartwatch, the Qualcomm Toq and it will be available on their company website for $350. To use it you would require a companion device with Bluetooth than runs Android 4.0 and above. Users will be able to accept and reject calls, view notifications and access a small selection of apps. CEO Paul Jacobs said “Like a traditional watch, Toq displays information at a glance with no on/off switch. And paired with a smartphone to receive notifications and content, it allows the watch to seamlessly merge our physical and digital lives.” I believe this item will not sell well as it will only be available on the Qualcomm website and many Android users will not want to pay $350 to access their phone on a watch when they could just take their phone out of their pocket. It is a clever idea but I think it will be seen as a bit of a gimmick.

After you download the app, you must first create an account with a valid e-mail address in order to start. The downside of this is that there are no Facebook or Google login options. Once you have done this, you are in, then Snapchat can access your address book (only if you grant it permission) for any contacts that are using the app, there is also an option to invite friends who are not. Snapchats interface is simple and instinctive and with its unique timer feature, Snapchat offers a ‘fun’ and ‘sneaky’ way to share photos and videos. However, Snapchat needs more photo and video editing tools as you cannot import items from outside the app, also the video snaps are of low quality.
