Study: Mobile apps are threatening Google's mobile search ad dominance

According to the results of a new study released recently by eMarketer, mobile apps are threatening Internet search giant Google's dominance in the mobile search advertising arena. The study shows that Google is apparently losing the battle in mobile space, chiefly on revenues accruing from search ads.

The eMarketer study - which has described 'apps' as the 'Other' category which is posing stiff competition to Google in the mobile search ads space - has revealed that Google's share of mobile search ad spending plunged from 82.8 percent in 2012 to only 68.5 percent in 2013.

Dating app Tinder unveils Snapchat-like new ‘Moments’ feature

A new Snapchat-like feature was added to dating app Tinder on Wednesday. Unveiling the new feature - dubbed 'Moments' - via a blog post announcement, Tinder said that the feature will give the users of the mobile hook-up app the ability to send self-destructing photos to one another as well as comment on the photos.

The addition of the new 'Moments' feature to the otherwise bare-bones Tinder dating app will enable the users to send self-destructing photos to all of their matches simultaneously. The photo messages sent via Tinder's new 'Moments' feature will disappear in 24 hours.
