Video: How PayPal is enabling mobile payments in Toronto


By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Earlier today, I went on a tour in dowtown Toronto with Alexander Peh, PayPal Canada’s head of mobile, to preview mobile apps that make everyday life easier. PayPal has been in the online and micro-payments business for many years now and they've adopted the latest technologies. Their mobile solution, which works on iPhones, Android devices, Windows Phone and BlackBerry phones, is compatible with over 100 businesses in Toronto which can enable secure payments.

Alexander Peh explained how  mobile apps and online food delivery services make use of PayPal payments these  include parking app HonkMobile, ride sharing app Blancride, Beck Taxi, food ordering service Grabb, Kupfert & Kim and grocery and booze delivery service Urbery. PayPal earns a commission on each transaction made with these retailers and service providers.

Microsoft's Cortana voice assistant headed to Android and iOS late June

Microosft has announced that it will make its Bing-powered Cortana voice assistant available as standalone apps for rival Android and iOS devices. Cortana is one of the hallmark features of Windows 8.1 for Phones and will be a key component of Windows 10 on the desktop.

Microsoft expects to make all the queries and features of Cortana on Windows available to Android and iOS devices when the apps launch late June. This means that rival phones will have the ability to enjoy a key feature of Windows 10 for Phones before the new OS comes to market. For iOS users, this means they now have a choice of three voice assistants on the platform with Siri, Google Now and Cortana available on their devices.

Apple Watch begins shipping, Watch Store opens with 3,000 apps

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Today is a huge day for anyone who was lucky or fast enough to order their Apple Watch two weeks ago. Apple begins shipping Watch orders today and those new users will be greeted with over 3,000 Watch specific apps in the device's built-in store. Apple Watch is still not available for in-store purchases and if you preorder today, it will likely ship in in June (depending on model availability). So the grey market demand for this thing will be insane.

It seems that Apple's gambit of showing the Watch SDK to developers early has paid of with tremendous response from existing and new developers who are looking to make their services accessible from the new wearable. Journalists have been deluged with releases from app manufacturers promoting their new applications. For a good idea of what it is like for Canadians to use Apple Watch check out Mike Yawney's post on 25 days with the Apple Watch and what I used it for - Hit jump for some of the Watch apps available in Canada today.
