MobileBits Holdings Corp (OTCBB:MBIT) provides valuable tools for merchants to create, publish & advertise on mobile devices

SARASOTA, Fla. - August 28, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) via PRWEB - MobileBits, (OTCBB: MBIT), provider of the SAMY(TM) mobile marketing and engagement network, today released its mobile storefront management tools designed to enable businesses to easily create their own mobile app presence and to connect with customers. The SAMY platform offers merchants a new and more effective solution to engage customers around their shopping interests.

SAMY offers online tools to either create a new app or integrate existing app functionality into a customized branded mobile storefront. Merchants are able to create and publish exclusive campaigns and reconcile offer redemptions at the point-of-sale, helping drive more customers into the store.

"Samy is our most effective tool for coupon redemption," said Jan De Schepper, Marketing Director for McDonald's. "Samy has been a real asset for maintaining our relationships with customers when they're away from the stores."

Mobile ad networks such as iAds, Admob and Millennial Media extend the digital advertising model by providing consumer clicks and typically charging a CPM (cost per thousand) or CPC (cost per click) fee to deliver leads and brand awareness. Social networks such as Facebook, Yelp, and to an extent Groupon, offer increased consumer engagement through mobile apps providing an opportunity to monetize consumer clicks.

SAMY transcends the mobile ad and social app landscape by increasing the engagement value and moving more of the real-time controls directly into the hands of the advertiser, charging only for actionable results defined as subscriptions.

Mobile subscribers select and connect to branded merchant storefronts, opening up a direct channel of communication around product offers and loyalty rewards delivering tremendous value to the business in the form of unlimited offer impressions and clicks.

Today SAMY averages 45 percent offer-view rates and 20 percent offer-redemption rates in the stores. Thousands of stores and top brands have already selected SAMY including McDonald's, Chairman's Brands and Extreme Brandz, who was recently acquired by larger MTY Group in Canada - together totaling 30 QSR brands.

"The SAMY redemption rates are outstanding and demolish direct mail and flyer campaigns," said Norm Pickering, Head Marketing North America at Extreme Brandz.

SAMY is a performance driven engagement network and charges merchants pennies for making the connection between interested shoppers and local merchants on their mobile devices. Merchants simply publish their content and advertise their brand within the SAMY network, which is comprised of consumers who are collectively aggregated from each enrolled client brand.

Biometric/ Mobile Security Stock NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD) Launches Pilot Program for Palm Bay , FL Police Department

Shelton, CT - August 23, 2013 (Investorideas.com mobile payment stocks newswire) NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing m-commerce market announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, 3D-ID, LLC commenced a pilot program with the Palm Bay, FL Police Department to evaluate its 3D FaceMatch™ biometric facial recognition identification systems.

The identification management systems leverage unique and patented FaceMatch™ 3D technology that precisely senses shape at up to a million points on a face without using lasers or projected patterns. This individually unique shape information is compressed into a small 3D biometric template containing a complete 3D shape signature of that individual face. This shape signature is rapidly compared to other templates in a database. Unlike 2D recognition methods where performance is highly variable depending on scene lighting, head pose, facial expression, eyewear, facial hair and cosmetics, FaceMatch™ templates and performance remains invariant over an extremely wide range of imaging variables. This enables reliable, scalable, and convenient face recognition solutions.
The system is being used at Palm Bay to enroll inmates into local detention centers, creating a 3- dimensional database that can be used in the future to potentially identify persons of interest. Inmates that are released will also have their identities verified through 3D facial recognition to prevent the inadvertent release of the wrong individual.
The pilot program is expected to expand to include more law enforcement agencies connected to 3D-ID's BioCloud™ to improve identification of previously enrolled (booked) individuals from multiple law enforcement agencies searching from a common 3D database. Further expansion is expected to include capture of faces from surveillance cameras, video, and from mobile devices using 3D-ID's MobileBio™ technologies under development.
John Blackledge, Deputy Chief of the Palm Bay Police Department, said, "3D facial recognition is an important technology innovation that will give law enforcement the upper hand in accurately and rapidly identify criminals. 3D-ID provides a new technology platform that allows law enforcement to make positive identification without the intrusiveness of conventional police methods."
Doug Muldoon, Palm Bay Police Chief, FBI-NA President, noted, "Our partnership with NXT-ID in 3D facial recognition is yet another opportunity to become more efficient and effective in fighting crime."
NXT-ID is a leader in biometric-based identity management and access control systems. Its product line offers cost-effective solutions for facilities access and control, inmate population management, identity management and border control. NXT-ID advanced biometric tools achieve excellent facial recognition performance using 3D camera technology, along with advanced 2D-to-3D conversion algorithms, and sketching systems that significantly simplify composite sketching with powerful 3D morphing technology.

Biometrics Stocks Spike On Apple Inc. (AAPL) New Fingerprint Reader; Mobile-Makers Turning to Biometrics

New York, NY - August 22, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including biometrics and mobile security stocks issues a trading alert and sector snapshot or biometrics stocks.

Bloomberg noted this week that "Biometric-company stocks have jumped in the past year on expectations Apple Inc. (AAPL) will unveil a new iPhone next month that includes a fingerprint reader, a prediction bolstered by Apple's $350 million purchase of fingerprint-sensor maker AuthenTec Inc. last year. Competitors to the Cupertino, California-based company are looking for alternatives to match the maker of iPhones, Precise Biometrics's Chief Executive Officer Thomas Marschall has said." Full article: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-08-20/precise-biometrics-soars-on-license-contract-stockholm-mover.html
Shares of Precise Biometrics AB (PREC) spiked this week following news of a deal with Fingerprint Cards. Precise Biometrics AB and Fingerprint Cards AB (FPC) announced they have entered into an agreement where FPC will license Precise Biometrics' fingerprint algorithm to further enhance the performance of FPC world leading capacitive sensors. FPC will bundle the algorithm into existing sensor products, primarily targeting mobile phones and tablets. The bundle will further enhance the performance of FPC sensors in terms of accuracy and speed which are important criteria especially in the fast growing mobile and tablet markets.
Bloomberg noted that the stock has more than quadrupled this year.
Newly listed NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD).started trading this week following a self registration IPO at $1.00. The stock closed Monday's trading session at $1.30, closing at $2, 25 Tuesday and then reached a high of $3.25 in Wednesday's session to close at $3.20,
NXT-ID, Inc. http://www.nxt-id.com/, http://3d-id.net/ is a technology company that is developing and marketing products, solutions, and services for consumers and organizations that have a need for biometric secure access control. The Company has three distinct lines of business: mobile commerce, law enforcement, and biometric access control applications.
The company is focused on the growing m-commerce market, launching its innovative MobileBio™ suite of biometric solutions that secure consumers' mobile platforms. NXT-ID' wholly owned subsidiary, 3D-ID LLC, is engaged in biometric identification has 22 licensed patents in the field of 3D facial recognition
The Company received funding from Connecticut Innovations (CI), the state's quasi-public authority responsible for growing Connecticut businesses through innovative financing and strategic assistance.

Bloomberg.com also noted this week "Mobile-device makers are turning to biometrics to make smartphones more secure and quicker for making payments and accessing files, music and video through so-called cloud services. An Apple embrace of fingerprint sensors could give the technology a lift, much like the boost touch screens got after the iPhone's introduction in 2007. Device makers started paying attention to biometrics, which can replace passwords and signatures, after the AuthenTec acquisition, Marschall said.
Shares of Precise Biometrics have almost doubled since Apple's AuthenTec deal, on expectation than its technology will see more demand. Fingerprint Cards AB, another Swedish maker of biometric security solutions, has risen more than tenfold.
A fingerprint sensor would provide iPhone users a simpler way to access files via the Internet and make mobile purchases, strengthening Apple in its battle with devices using Google Inc.'s Android operating system, according to Kuo Mingchi, a KGI analyst in Taipei who covers Apple suppliers. An iPhone with the technology would provide "fresh momentum" for fingerprint- sensor suppliers, the analyst said in an Aug. 12 note. Apple declined to comment.
Mobile payments are set to soar as more people transfer money and shop on their smartphones. Total transactions will rise to $721 billion by 2017 from $235 billion this year, according to researcher Gartner Inc."

Biometric Investor Alert: Biometric Mobile Commerce Company NXT-ID, Inc. Commences Trading on OTCQB (OTCQB: NXTD)

Shelton, CT - August 16, 2013 (Investorideas.com mobile payment stocks newswire) NXT-ID, Inc., (OTCQB:NXTD) a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market today announces that it will commence trading on the OTCQB under the trading symbol NXTD on August 16th.

NXT-ID, Inc. is an early stage technology company that is developing and marketing products, solutions, and services for consumers and organizations that have a need for biometric secure access control. The Company has three distinct lines of business: mobile commerce, law enforcement, and biometric access control applications.
NXT-ID went public through an S1 self- registration. The Company also has also received funding from Connecticut Innovations (CI), the state’s quasi-public authority responsible for growing Connecticut businesses through innovative financing and strategic assistance.
Part of the NXT-ID technology portfolio is based on years of development, dating back to 1995. NXT-ID’s licensed biometric technologies have historically won awards from the Department of Defense, NIH, NIST and NSF amounting to more than $30 million.
NXT-ID’s initial efforts are focused on developing a secure biometric electronic wallet for the growing mobile commerce market. The Company believes that this constitutes unique technology because it takes a very different approach relative to the current offerings: instead of replacing the wallet through a smartphone, the aim is to improve it. The Wocket™ will reduce the number of cards to be carried in a consumer’s wallet to a single card and will be capable of supporting virtually every payment method currently available at Point-of-Sale (POS) at retailers around the world including magnetic stripe, touchless payment methods such as near field communications and barcode all within a secure biometric vault.
In parallel NXT-ID is marketing its existing line of secure 3D FaceMatch biometric identification systems for law enforcement, the Department of Defense, and Homeland Security through their subsidiary 3D-ID, LLC (http://3d-id.net/), acquired in June, 2012.
3D-ID is engaged in the design, research and development, integration, analysis, modeling, system networking, sales and support of intelligent surveillance, three dimensional facial recognition and three dimensional imaging devices and systems primarily for identification and access control in the security industries. 3D-ID has 22 licensed patents in the field of 3D facial recognition. The Company has generated revenues ($250,000) from initial sales of its 3D FaceMatch biometric identification products during the year ended December 31, 2012
Using biometrics technologies, NXT-ID plans to address the growing m-commerce market with their innovative MobileBio™ suite of biometric solutions that secure mobile platforms. Currently most mobile devices continue to be protected simply by questions that a user asks, and PIN numbers. This security methodology is easily duplicated on another device, and can be easily spoofed or hacked . NXT-ID’s biometric security paradigm is Dynamic Pairing Codes (DPC). DPCs are a new, proprietary method to secure users, devices, accounts, locations and servers over any communication media by sharing key identifiers, including biometric-enabled identifiers, between end-points by passing dynamic pairing codes (random numbers) between end-points to establish sessions and/or transactions without exposing identifiers or keys. The company’s plan also anticipates that it will use its core biometric algorithms to develop a security application that can be used for corporations (industrial uses, such as enterprise computer networks) as well as individuals (consumer uses, such as smart phones, PDAs or personal computers).
With management experienced in the industry and public companies, NXT-ID will leverage existing knowhow and experience to rapidly develop these solutions.

Q&A with China based UMeWorld's (OTCQB: UMEWF) Discussing its Video Content Platform and Online Education Business

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - August 13, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including social media and internet stocks issues an exclusive Q&A with the CEO and President of UMeWorld Limited (OTCQB: UMEWF), an online video and education internet company in China. Mr. Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President share his vision of targeting the massive online market in China.

Q: Investorideas.com
Michael can you first explain briefly to new investors the two divisions of your internet company, the video content platform and the online education market?
A: Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President
You probably are not aware that YouTube and many other popular video sites are blocked by China's "Great Firewall". UMeLook is uniquely positioned to offer advertisers the ability to use their existing promotional video assets to access mainland China consumers. UMeLook is deployed through a sophisticated CDN (Content Delivery Network) with broad coverage throughout mainland China. UMeLook is fast becoming the primary source of foreign video content for the Chinese viewer across any Internet-enabled device in China.
SmartStar is our cloud-based, adaptive learning educational platform, under our digital education business division. Unlike traditional online courseware, SmartStar provides a concept-level assessment and evaluation of a student’s learning progress. It identifies the student’s strengths, weaknesses, their proficiency in a given subject area and personalizes the delivery of proprietary educational items according to the student’s learning needs. SmartStar is also capable of providing scoring and statistical analysis of exams and evaluations and to provide administration of local and nationally standardized exams. It is ideal for schools and teachers.
Q: Investorideas.com
With the UMeLook ( http://www.umelook.com/) website can you explain how having foreign content differentiates your site in China?
A: Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President
UMeLook.com is a niche player in the Chinese online video market, wherein the competition is focused on local TV series and, we different ourselves by focusing on foreign videos of less than 10 minutes duration and target affluent Chinese viewers between the age of 18-45 who are interested in foreign information, products and brands. UMeLook.com has also succeeded in entering the Chinese online video market where global players such as YouTube and Dailymotion are blocked and inaccessible in China. There is no existing direct competitor for UMeLook operations plan and business model in the Chinese online video marketplace.
Q: Investorideas.com
What kind of growth are you seeing for UMeLook ( http://www.umelook.com/) and how do you plan to keep building on that?
A: Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President
More than 60% of China's approximately 600 million internet users watch online videos. As the number of China's internet users grows, so will the online video market. Chinese are spending much of their time online -- an average three hours a day, compared with two hours watching television, according to a study conducted last year by Starcom Mediavest Group. The statistic is the same for consumers even in the less developed, lower-tier markets that brands are keen to crack. UMeLook.com will continue to drive viewership aggressively and in conjunction, are preparing to launch a global e-commerce platform assisting small and medium brands from worldwide sources, to expand into the Chinese market. Marketers spent $7.4 billion on online marketing in China in 2011, representing 13.5% of total media spending. That was up from $5.1 billion, or 10.6% of the total, spent in 2010. We hope to generate significant advertising revenue from our e-commerce platform.
Q: Investorideas.com
The online education market has the potential to be huge according to analysts, filling the gaps in traditional education. How are you targeting that market and what kind of traction is the company getting?
A: Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President
SmartStar is on track to become a leading education service provider in China. The K-12 education system in China is the largest in the world comprising 230 million students and 12 million teachers. Chinese families spend more discretionary income on education than anything other expense, except for housing. SmartStar will be available through a monthly subscription, as low as US$10, enabling the user to have unlimited access via the internet. We are in advance discussions with several national distributors who will offer SmartStar pre-paid cards that can be used against a monthly subscription.
Q: Investorideas.com
In closing Michael, what do you see as your biggest competitive advantage moving forward?
A: Michael Lee, Chief Executive Officer and President
Well, I am happy to say that there is no existing direct competitor for UMeLook operations plan and business model in the Chinese online video marketplace. As for SmartStar, our adaptive learning concept and technology is unique and in fact, we are about to submit a patent application to the patent office in U.S. and China to protect this asset. In conclusion, we are delivering two first-in-class products to meet the unmet needs of the target markets and there is no reason not to be successful.

How Google (GOOG), AT&T (T) and Technology Companies are Opening up the World

Point Roberts, WA, New York, NY - August 2, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, providing global investing ideas in leading sectors including technology, issues a sector snapshot on developments and the market opportunity for language coding (all Unicode & all ASCII) technology and software.  With apps like the AT&T Translator ( NYSE:T ) Google’s Android (NASDAQ :GOOG), The Bible App in 400 languages, all are working on changing worldwide DIGITAL communications.

Google is looking at how to take digital languages to the next level, and then it’s just a matter of time before language will no longer have any barriers and business and individuals will be able to communicate with anyone, anywhere in any language. And as Google says: they will bring everyone to the Internet by 2020.
A pioneer in the sector, Dr. Philip Payne, founder of Linguist's Software Inc. http://www.linguistsoftware.com/ , started his company 30 years ago in Edmonds, WA not knowing the path to globalization that lay ahead. He grew his company to provide fonts and input from 200 to over 2000 languages over the last three decades, making it by far the largest linguistic software library of its kind.  Now this new (IP) is ten times larger (language/font/key-guide & tool set) than Adobe, who used to be the world leader.
Ken Kinkel, CEO of Mergers & Acquisitions ( www.CorpMA.com ) represents Dr. Payne’s exit strategy and retirement from Linguist's Software Inc. and understands the value of his language software to change the future of mobile and the internet communications.
"Google has said they will have everyone on the Internet by 2020. They are moving so fast that only companies with these 2000+ languages could have a chance to catch up to Google.  Maybe even beat them, to what is now looking like a monopoly for Google by 2020. That’s an astonishing prediction and if it’s true, then the company that owns these 2,000 plus languages will be a perfect position to capitalize on this astonishing achievement.  Being connected worldwide is one thing, but being able to communicate in practically every language of the world is quite another.  Our client’s product makes this possible.  Universal connectivity and now matched with the available in one’s own language - a perfect combination for the future of worldwide digital communications.
Other firms may even beat Google, to what is now looking like a worldwide monopoly for them by 2020.  By using their cell phone dominance (and 6.3 billion cell phones that exist today, according to the UN) they could skip past the huge infrastructure that Google is now building in fiber, and power worldwide. And use existing cell technology to take these languages to world dominance right now and well before Google’s dominance by 2020.
