Apple-iOS-77

Advantage of iOS7 for enterprises

Apple with its iOS7 brought in a revolution in the enterprise sector. iOS7, the latest evolution of Apple, has promising features for enterprises of small and medium levels. It sports impressive look, upgraded functionality, security features and business-critical advantages. It facilitates sensitive data security, wireless file sharing, central control, and employee management at workplace. The business sector has been eloquent with kudos for iOS7. Here is why how enterprises can benefit from iOS7.

Employers are often concerned with the security of mobile devices that their employees use at workplace. Some of the key employees in an organization have access to the sensitive business-critical data which they may store in their personal mobile devices, or the mobile phones provided to them officially. Security of the stored data is a concern as mobile devices may be lost or stolen. Access to the vital data via hacking of the lost or stolen mobile phones can expose the organization to risks.

But, iOS7 has mitigated the mobile phone data security concerns of enterprises. The application packs in a number of security features. With the Activation Lock feature, it is difficult to crack the password-protected phones and leak data. Adding to the security is the Fingerprint Scanner which works on the basis of passcodes. These safeguards integrated with the latest iOS7 stand for Apple’s promise to enhance security for users.

Besides general security, the latest iOS7 comes with other options which ensure the security of specific enterprise apps. It helps the IT departments of organizations to monitor employees’ access and use of enterprise apps. The ADMIN unit of organizations can leverage these features of iOS7 to keep a check on employees’ activities at workplace. Thus, iOS7 indirectly help employees to keep their personal life and professional life separate. Using it, companies can restrict access to the vital apps for some employees who are no more involved in a project.

File sharing is one of the enterprise-level activities supported by the AirDrop functionality of iOS7. It facilitates wireless file sharing for iPhone users, and information sharing among colleagues during conferences and meetings. Thus, iOS7 can be leveraged to streamline enterprise communication. It offers iCloud facilities too.

Evidently, enterprises are looking to absorb these advantages of iOS7 into their daily functioning for better administration and operation.

Use of iPad applications in speech therapy

Mobile application technology has revolutionized pathological and therapeutic programs, to say speech therapy. Speech-language pathologists and therapists have been leveraging the communication potential of iPad applications to make their speech training and articulation techniques accessible to the victims of autism, affected by stammering, from a distance. Innovation of iPad apps in this niche has made speech therapy a feasible solution.

Some apps attribute data-tracking capability to iPad devices, which makes it possible for therapists to focus on their practices and results. Using the apps, they get real-time data that they can share with their clients or clients’ caretakers. It mitigates the need to get a hard copy of the data of the speech therapy practices. The therapists can explain the key issues, difficulties or improvements to their clients by analyzing the data over phone or through online chat. The use of iPad devices in speech therapy has made the treatment accessible to even those who stay far away from clinics.

There are some iPad devices which will enable you to record your child’s speech on different occasions so that you can compare them to find out exactly when he/she stumbles or stammers, and you can share the records with a speech therapist easily too. You can check the records again and again to find out if he/she feels unnerved or lacks confidence at the time of talking. Such findings help trace the root cause of the problem with the child’s speech.

Using special iPad applications, therapists can reach out to children with articulation difficulty. Their therapeutic articulation programs can be accessible to those children via installation of special apps on iPad devices. It helps the children to practice the techniques at home, with the help of their parents.

These programs are tailored to the level of feasibility that iPad devices support. Without application development service, it may not have been possible. There are some fun apps using which children can listen to how to articulate the words which they find difficult to utter. It helps them realize the difference between the way they utter the words and the way the words are articulated. Once the difference is noticed, they will be able to fix the problem.

The use of apps-supported iPad devices in speech and articulation training has proven to be a lot beneficial for the adults who often find it difficult to take lessons in speech therapy classes. By installing certain apps on their iPad devices, they can access the speech therapy and articulation programs of clinics and train themselves in privacy.

We at Infinium Softech develop high-end iPad applications for speech therapy and articulation programs in collaboration with pathologists and therapists.

iPad application for students

iPad apps for students with special learning needs

Most of the times, we talk about the business applications of iPads. iPad is a multidimensional device with lots of usability in the teaching and learning niche for special children. Innovative iPad apps make education not only easier but also fun for students with special learning needs. Here is how iPad works for them:

iPad devices pack in the features that empower social students with reading and writing abilities. Text to Speech is one such feature that makes the words audible to students with hearing problem when they read. They can hear the exact pronunciation of words by using this feature of iPad devices. Thus, the TTS feature benefits the visually challenged students and helps them learn by hearing words.

Those who find it difficult to spell a word correctly can benefit from special apps integrated to or installed on iPad devices. It helps special students in writing. Even some iPad apps help them correct grammatical errors in writing, thereby making it possible to improve quality of writing assignments. Apps like Grace make communication easier for students affected by autism. They can express their ideas using the app.

iPad devices have the integrated VoiceOver, a screen-reading application. Using the feature, they can hear a description about what they point at. VoiceOver comes with adjustability to set the pace of hearing that the users with visual or hearing impairment feel comfortable with. Besides, VoiceOver utters the letters that the users type on the keyboard of their iPad devices. Hearing spellings and pronunciation, they can write seamlessly.

Virtual education and excursion would not have been easier for special students without iPad apps. Many schools providing special education cannot afford excursion trips. Special education teachers equipped with modern technology take students on virtual trips within four walls of the classroom, using the Skype app on iPad devices. If students are taken on a virtual trip to a museum, they can interact with the member or guide of the museum over Skype.

iPad apps make it a lot easier for students to take notes and record lectures. Such apps are useful for those who are slow at taking notes and following lectures in the classroom. Students with special learning needs can benefit a lot from the use of such iPad apps as Mad Addition, Mad Multiplication and Mad Subtraction. It makes education fun even for those with trouble speaking.
