By ADA – Top Mobile App Development Service Providers in 2020

App Development Agency

ADA discovers top service providers in mobile app development to level out the ever-increasing volume and decreasing value of mobile applications. Have a look!

BELMONT, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When every mobile application and subsequent service provider compete noisily for being attended in a way that guarantees no one would be heard, ADA turns up to be an unassailable lead opening up the window for experimentation.

Here is an excerpt from the comprehensive list of top mobile app development service providers that could possibly have an effect with immediacy, with a potential to turn a conflict back into a reasonable conversation:

1. Konstant Infosolutions
2. Intellectsoft
3. WillowTree Apps
4. TechAhead
5. Y Media Labs
6. LeewayHertz
7. Fueled
8. Rademade
9. Eleks
11. RiseApps
12. Mtoag Technologies
13. Affle Enterprise
14. Ethervision
15. Ready4S
16. ChromeInfo Technologies
17. Dev Technosys
18. Fuzz
19. Cleveroad
20. Sourcebits

And Now, the SWOT Analysis to Choose the Best Mobile App Development Company…


• What benefits does the business provide?
• What can it do exceptionally well?
• What is the USP of the business?
• Does it have any valuable assets and resources?
• What makes the app idea better than others?


• Is there any scope of improvement?
• What improvements can be done?
• What parts need to be eradicated or added?
• What are the major shortcomings?
• Are there any complaints in previous projects which should be taken care of in the future?
• Where does the vulnerability lie?


Strengths or weaknesses can be turned out into favor to be counted as potential opportunities. These can further be capitalized and be beneficial in future undertakings.


• Funding can always be a threat.
• The dwindling market situation, or negative remark from the client while the project is in the deployable state can be a hurdle.
• The viability of the proposed solution might depend upon the customer’s requirements, availability of skilled developers, current economic condition, project budget and technology required, etc. If any of these factors are not fulfilled, it might lead to chaos.
• Any external issues that might prevent the successful completion of the project.

What a naïve observer might conclude….

These mobile app development service providers listed by ADA are indeed the best ones in the current market. In order to choose the organization to commit to a project, a service seeker must chalk the alternatives like the one who could interrupt the ongoing chaos, shift to process, propose a structure and honor an agreement. As various companies into mobile app development erupt into jeers and shouts, propelling themselves to be elected, there has to be podium that can be approached to settle the topsy-turvydom. While there are times when foes are so entrenched in their positions that simple interventions like this are inadequate, for the vast majority of conflicts at developers’ bench, this works.

About ADA

App Development Agency works to defuse the conflicts amongst various service providers by sorting them into meaningful lists according to their competency level, thus directing service seekers to relevant platforms.

Elizabeth Stanton, Travel Guru Extraordinaire, Examines Poor Customer Service Not Affecting Profits for Major Airlines

Elizabeth Stanton, Travel Guru Extraordinaire

“Airlines will figure out just how much every client is worth and treat them accordingly.” – Elizabeth Stanton

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new study by University of Nevada, Reno, found that there is no correlation between customer satisfaction and performance of the airline. Airline management, away from the financial incentive to invest in CS, is more concerned with filling as many seats as possible-and increasing the number of seats per flight by reducing seat width and legroom to take on a few extra rows in economy class. Well, it seems travel guru extraordinaire, Elizabeth Stanton, has a lot to say on the subject and insists that the sadly poor customer service doesn't affect income.

“This besieged consumer lives in an alternative reality where businesses can discriminate at will between their high-value and low-value clientele, at the same time as they marginalize bargain hunters and coupon cutters,” states Elizabeth Stanton. “Most companies couldn’t get away with treating their customers this way. But some already do: airlines.”

Stanton continues, “Airlines will figure out just how much every client is worth and treat them accordingly. They have this overarching sense of who their valued customers are, regardless of any individual fare, and what their lifetime value is. And because of the system structure, they will take advantage of it to the degree that they are cruel to people.”

When it comes to poor customer service, airlines seem to be beyond reproach and the average air traveler knows that. It’s self-evident in the soaring profits of United, which forcibly dragged a passenger off an overbooked flight 2 years ago, and in budget carriers offering increasingly spartan flying experiences while insinuating add-on fees for amenities that were once included, like carry-on baggage and inflight entertainment. The big U.S. airlines have a near-monopoly on air travel from many (although not all) major American airports, leaving little options for price-sensitive passengers when they fly.

“Other industries don’t have nearly the ability to be as arrogant as the airlines are,” states Stanton. “Nonairline business' need to be discreet about their discriminatory practices and create an environment that is friendly enough not to drive away their customers. Whether this will ever change so airlines can’t get such a grip on people? I don’t know.

On Tuesday February 18, 2020, the U.S. Department of Transportation released its annual report on air travel for 2019. This report shows travel data related to the consumer and you can see how on average airlines have been giving poor service as cancellations increase and long tarmac delays being displayed. Check out the statistics below:

On-time arrival rate: 79%, down from 79.2% in 2018. Despite operating on island time, Hawaiian Airlines was the most punctual carrier. Frontier was the least.

Cancellations: Airlines canceled 1.9% of scheduled domestic flights last year, all of which interrupted an important family gathering. In 2016, the cancellation rate was 1.2%.

Animals: Carriers reported 11 animal deaths and eight injuries.

Tarmac delays: The longest tarmac delay was a United flight that spent 5 hours and 32 minutes on the Newark tarmac before taking off for Milan, Italy.

Danny Brown, Luxury Real Estate Broker, On How the High-End Housing Market Has Exploded in Los Angeles

Danny Brown, Luxury Real Estate Broker

“The high-end luxury market and uber luxury market in Los Angeles has exploded in January after anemic results in 2019.” – Danny Brown

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Southern California home prices shot from a year earlier in January as buyers battled over a limited supply of homes for sale across the six-county area. The median price of the area — the level where half of the homes sell for more and half for less — clocked in at $533,000, DQNews said Monday, February 24th. That was above the previous year by 6.6%. It's the latest hint that the home market is heating up after muddling through much of 2019.

Acclaimed Realtor at Compass, Danny Brown, seems to have a lot to say in the matter and is in agreement that we are going into a seller’s market. “The high-end luxury market and uber luxury market in Los Angeles has exploded in January after anemic results in 2019,” states Danny Brown. There’s been a half dozen sales over $100 million including a price record of $150m, which Lachlan Murdoch took credit for in December. Then Jeff Bezos shattered that record and bought David Gefferns Jack Warner Estate for $165m. There is plentiful inventory on the upper-end market, so the housing shortage is really on the mid-priced and low ends.”

High-end home sales signaled a recovery in the second quarter of 2019, according to the latest report from Redfin, which showed that prices rose a mere 1% to $1.64 million. While the gain is nominal, it could be a sign that the bleeding has stopped after several quarters of falling sales. Certainly, the second quarter's performance was a boost from the first quarter of the year, which saw luxury prices decline 1.7%. In Q1, prices declined for the first time in almost three years, and sales saw their largest decline since 2010 as supply increased by double digits.

Economists attribute the change, seen across the country, to falling mortgage rates, the easing of recession fears and a stark shortage of homes for sale. In Southern California, depending on the county, there were 17% to 28% fewer homes on the market in January than a year earlier, Zillow data show. Similar declines were reported in December. Interest rates had shot up in late 2018 and early 2019, and there was high economic uncertainty— two factors that caused buyers to pull back. At the same time, Zillow economist Jeff Tucker theorized, some sellers, worried the market might turn and wipe out some of their equity gains, listed their homes. But homes sat and inventory swelled. It seems that even with such limitations, it is a good time for people, especially in the high-end luxury market, to sell.

“The world has never seen the scale and scope of these uber sales in Los Angeles,” continues Danny Brown. “Up next is a $500m 100,000 sf spec, “The One”, with a Monaco casino and night club which is being shown quietly off market. It’s a flight to safety. Billionaires parking capital in blue chip estates in A+ locations as a form of diversification and enjoying the unique healthy sunshine and lifestyle that only LA can provide.”

Home prices and sales rose in all six counties compared with a year earlier:

In Los Angeles County, the median sale price rose 6% to $615,000, while sales climbed 14.1%.
In Orange County, prices rose 6.7% to $747,000, and sales climbed 20.3%.
In Riverside County, prices rose 4% to $390,000, and sales climbed 18.3%.
In San Bernardino County, prices rose 12.5% to $360,000, and sales climbed 16.7%.
In San Diego County, prices rose 7.9% to $585,000, and sales climbed 22.8%.
In Ventura County, prices rose 3.2% to $588,500, and sales climbed 18.8%.

Donald Dirren reveals latest life insurance products for seniors

Licensed financial advisor Donald Dirren provides an expert look at some of the latest life insurance products available for seniors.

PHEONIX, ARIZONA, USA, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — From term life and final expense insurance to indexed life and long-term care protection, licensed financial advisor Donald Dirren outlines a number of the latest life insurance products best suited to today's seniors across the United States.

"Life insurance products for seniors vary wildly, so it's vital that people choose the policy that's right for them," suggests Dirren, a financial advisor for more than 30 years, speaking from his office in Phoenix, Arizona.

Depending on an individual's age, their health, goals, and other factors, life insurance products for seniors include hybrid life which is a newer form of index universal life, universal life, and whole life insurance policies, according to Donald Dirren, who focuses on retirement planning and educating those seeking to protect, preserve, and pass on their wealth.

Dirren starts by taking a closer look at what's known as term life insurance. "Usually the cheapest option, term life insurance is best suited to those who only need short-term coverage, as the name suggests," he explains. Terms for older individuals, however, Dirren says, are often limited. "Where end-of-life expense coverage is the goal, another option is final expense life insurance," suggests the expert.

For individuals with more long term or estate planning needs, meanwhile, Dirren points toward fixed indexed universal and fixed universal life insurance for seniors. Permanent and flexible are these types of policies and the expert suggests, representing a safe investment option with no risk. "Another option," Dirren goes on, "is long-term care insurance, although the cost of this type of coverage is rising."

A hybrid option, then, he says, may be a better proposition. "Combining two types of coverage, chiefly long-term care and a permanent form of life insurance, hybrid life and long-term care coverage is available as a single policy, often much more cost-effective premium than traditional long-term care insurance," adds Dirren. With hybrid life and long-term care coverage, an individual's death benefit amount is utilized for long term care as needed while the policyholder is alive or a death benefit upon the policyholders death, both on a tax-free basis according to the expert.

Arguably the most expensive form of coverage for seniors, however, Donald Dirren says, is permanent whole life insurance. "Highest premium among life insurance options and thus potentially out of reach for many seniors, whole life insurance is more common among younger individuals," he explains. "If money isn't an issue though, whole life insurance from a top-rated insurance company, arguably, remains one of the the better ways to leave an inheritance," Dirren goes on, "and one which is tax-free for beneficiaries."

If in any doubt about which life insurance products are best for seniors, Donald Dirren suggests speaking to an expert. "If there's any doubt about which option is best, consider making a point of finding and speaking to a qualified financial advisor who can walk you through the process of choosing the best life insurance product for you personally," adds Dirren, wrapping up.

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author, Details Over Coming Difficult Life Experiences in the Jewelry Business

Adrienne Rubin, Acclaimed Author

Diamond and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business

“Because I was naive, I made many wrong decisions, and more than once I trusted the wrong people.” – Adrienne Rubin.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Adrienne Rubin once worked out of her car, pulling a suitcase loaded with silver, gold, and gemstone jewelry, which she sold wholesale to stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. Adrienne has stated that by chance, on a vacation to Mexico, she fell into the jewelry business when she and her husband Stanford reconnected with the owner of a high-end silver store, and the store owner sought legal advice on problems with a Los Angeles Jewelry wholesaler.

“I was feeling bereft,” states Adrienne. “Our two children were in school, and my brief career as a school teacher had not satisfied my ambitions or creativity. My volunteer work with a local hospital to compile two cookbooks for fundraising had ended, and I was at loose ends. I thought, ‘I’ll sell silver jewelry for him!’ It wasn’t easy AT ALL, but I learned, and grew the business from part-time to full-time. I did it!”

It seems that this path was destined for Adrienne, as eventually the company mushroomed to include gold chains from the downtown LA Jewelry District, then gemstone jewelry found at jewelry shows in Hong Kong and Italy. However, this success came at a cost as Adrienne found herself to be naive enough to believe that anyone who bought her jewelry was as trustworthy as her father, a mistake that shaped Adrienne’s future. “Because I was naive, I made many wrong decisions, and more than once I trusted the wrong people,” claims Adrienne. “Yet each time I fell, I got right back up again. Giving up was never an option. To get to where you want to go, you cannot let fear of failure get in your way. For me, every challenge was an opportunity to soar even higher than before.” It's enough to say that after everything, Adrienne found out there are crooks out there, and she was adamant that dishonest people would NOT profit from her ever again.

From the age of two Adrienne grew up in Beverly Hills after moving from Chicago with her family. She graduated from Beverly Hills High School and spent a year in Lausanne, Switzerland, attending the School of Modern French where she learned to speak French fluently. She completed her college studies at UC Berkeley, and graduated from UCLA with a Master of Teaching degree. She married Stanford Rubin, a relationship that lasted more than 50 years. Adrienne and Stan raised their daughter Pamela and son Randall, and enjoy traveling with their three grandsons and cooking for them; Grand-Mère's most desirable meal is her tender brisket.

Adrienne has certainly made a name for herself in the jewelry business and as an author, but she also is involved in humanitarian efforts. In October 2019, the Los Angeles Arthritis Foundation honored Adrienne with the Jane Wyman Humanitarian Award as their top L.A fundraiser. For ten years now, Adrienne has been riding her bike in the California Coast Classic of the Arthritis Foundation, an eight-day cycling trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles along California's coastline.

“I was a total neophyte when the bicycle tour was proposed as a fundraiser. I had to purchase a bicycle and take lessons to learn how to operate the gears,” states Adrienne. “Approximately 350 cyclists participate each year. My husband has been challenged with arthritis since his 30s, and had both hips replaced plus numerous back surgeries for arthritis complications. He served as chairman of the national Arthritis Foundation board of directors. As he became less active in fundraising, I became more involved.”


Adrienne Rubin


“Diamonds and Scoundrels” is a memoir that follows Adrienne Rubin as she first begins in the jewelry business. When Adrienne Rubin enters into the jewelry business in 1970s Los Angeles, she is a maverick in a world dominated by men. She soon meets a young hotshot salesman who doesn’t seem to struggle at all, and when he asks her to be his partner, she is excited to join him. She doesn’t know him well, but she does know his father, and she believes he is as trustworthy as the day is long.

“Diamonds and Scoundrels” shows us how a woman in a man’s world, with tenacity and sheer determination, can earn respect and obtain a true sense of accomplishment. Following Rubin’s experiences in the jewelry industry through the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s—with the ups and downs, good guys and bad—this is a tale of personal growth, of how to overcome challenges with courage and resilience. It’s a story for the woman today who, in addition to a rich family life, seeks a self-realized, fulfilling path toward a life well lived.

“Diamonds & Scoundrels is an incredible story of a woman who seemingly had it all but craved purpose. Through determination, boldness, entrepreneurial spirit and sheer will, she built a flourishing business, smashed barriers and proved that no dream is out of reach if you simply refuse to quit,” states Matt Iseman, host of American Ninja Warrior. It seems that this memoir from Adrienne Rubin is one you don’t want to miss out on.

Adrienne Rubin’s memoir, Diamonds and Scoundrels: My Life in the Jewelry Business is available through www.Amazon.com, www.target.com, www.walmart.com or www.barnesandnoble.com, and can be ordered through your local bookstore.

The dynamic marketing branding and strategy services from Full Gallop Communications are now officially available for the photonics manufacturing community.

ROCHESTER, NY, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The dynamic marketing branding and strategy services from Full Gallop Communications are now officially available for the optics manufacturing community.

Providing branding and marketing strategy as well as web design, SEO growth, and content marketing, Full Gallop has delivered experienced and knowledgeable support in the equestrian, veterinary, sporting goods, and non-profit sectors.
