Android Wear 的 Wear Mini Launcher 可以讓用戶更方便地打開程式

有留意 Android Wear UI 設計的你,肯定會知道這個 OS 的 UI 是沒有一個統一的 Wear app 清單,要在上面打開某個 app 的話,需要在主頁中不斷掃直至找到有關 app 為止,或是直接用語音指令啟動,很不方便。其實很多 Android 手機的用戶都已經習慣了要打啟動某些程式之前,先打開將所有 app 歸於一地的 launcher 尋找。

針對著這個問題,有開發者乾脆為 Android Wear 開發出一個 launcher,名為 Wear Mini Launcher。這個 Wear app 很簡單,就像 Android 手機一樣,把所有 app 集中在一起。如果想打開 launcher 的話,只要從螢幕的左上邊緣掃動就可以了,裡面一頁放置了六個 app,對於小螢幕來說這個設計很合理。最後,由於這是 Wear Mini Launcher 的首發,所以在使用時遇上一點 bug 的話也不出奇,記得回報就好了~

Microsoft 為 Android 推出 Climatology app,讓用戶輕易了解全球天氣模式

Microsoft Research 日前靜靜地為 Android 推出了一個名為 Climatology 的天氣 app,可以讓用戶輕易深入了解全球天氣。這個 app 其實是由該部門的氣候科學家所研發,功能上,它會提供各地在特定時間內的氣溫、濕度、平均降雨量和日照時間等資訊。所以當大家要提早很多地計劃旅程之時,就可以打開這個 app 查看有關地方在該段時間裡的天氣模式是如何。不過就 Google Play 上的用戶評價而言,大多指出這個 app 雖然美麗,但功能就差了一點,相信 Microsoft Research 會持續改善這個 app 吧。

SEO Glossary – Anchor Text

SEO Glossary – Anchor Text

SEO Glossary 詞彙表現在只提供英文版

The text that a user would click on to follow a link. In the case the link is an image the image alt attribute may act in the place of anchor text.

Search engines assume that your page is authoritative for the words that people include in links pointing at your site. When links occur naturally they typically have a wide array of anchor text combinations. Too much similar anchor text may be a considered a sign of manipulation, and thus discounted or filtered. Make sure when you are building links that you control that you try to mix up your anchor text.

Example of anchor text:

<a href=”http://www.webtimedia.com/”>Search Engine Optimization Blog</a>

Outside of your core brand terms if you are targeting Google you probably do not want any more than 10% to 20% of your anchor text to be the same. You can use Backlink Analyzer to compare the anchor text profile of other top ranked competing sites.
