    Share bigger images to hybrid app using iOS Share Extension

    I would like to share my experience with Share Extension. The requirement is to share images to our app from external apps like Photos/Gallery, Google Drive etc. 

    In hybrid apps (Cordova + Ionic), we can share images from external apps to our own app. Let’s see how to implement in iOS.

    In iOS, there is no direct way to share images from external apps to our app. In order to do that,

    Social sharing icons are not displayed in wordpress page ?

    One of the reasons could be that your plug-in’s css file is not loaded by header.php

    When we build custom themes we edit header.php to include new css, scripts …etc.

    In our case the header.php was rewritten from scratch, so the wp_head() php function added by wordpress in header.php template was removed.

    I installed AddToAny plug-in and when I tried to get the social sharing icons by adding [addtoany] short code,

    Bridging the Gap between UX & CX: Possible?

    A few weeks back, I was flying from Kochi to Hyderabad. Since I have been flying frequently these days, I considered the idea of accumulating frequent flyer miles with one of the airlines. On further research, I decided to go with one airline and downloaded their app.

    Though I have never used a mobile application for booking air tickets before, I found the application very simple and easy to use. As a UX designer,

    Digital Information – A Maze or Amaze

    Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality is the future of today’s technology and human world. It’s very fascinating to see its capabilities, and its endless virtual tangibility. It will change everything we do, see, experience and feel today – the way we watch a film, make a phone call or how we interact with others. Its enthralling that technology has reached a level where the borders of our physical and virtual world are almost negligible.

    However something even more complex and intricate lies behind this idea of these experiences and even our fancy gadgets –

    Deep Linking in Angular

    Deep Linking

    Deep linking is the usage of the URL, which will take to specific page (content) directly without traversing application from home page [1]. It helps in getting indexed so that these links can be easily searchable by search engines like Google, Yahoo.. etc.

    Users know what they want

    If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘faster horses.’
     – Allegedly said by Henry Ford. No one could prove though.

    We don’t know who came up with that, but its essence makes me uncomfortable. It directly hints that users do not know what they want. I disagree with such a thought.

    As a designer, if you are anticipating your users to articulate in precise terms what they expect,

    Doorway to better employee engagement!

    Doorway to better employee engagement

    I always had this claustrophobic feeling whenever I visited the office during my early career days. I used to feel that the aspect of employee engagement was totally missing. I had moved from a college/school environment where there are long benches to sit on with your friends and peers to share, learn and understand various topics. The classroom was the only primary identity, and we were free to sit where we wanted and with whom we wanted –

    Hello and Welcome to Divami’s Blog
