Social Media Journal on Ulitzer

services like the AR app, the author offers no solution to the fragmentation
problem we all face in mobile.
Only companies that aim to have a extremely innovative, first mover kind of
image, will go this way, because those apps won’t reach beyond the platform
they were created for (e.g. iPhone). Of course, the iPhone has reached a
