John Ndego (2L) CEO Vodafone Uganda and Jackie Namara (3R) the Head of Marketing interact with the Vodafone Brand Ambassadors during the launch of the Vodafone Youth Program at Kampala International University Advertisement Looks like Vodafone Uganda is shifting it’s focus from Voice – a market that’s already crowded with many players and dominated by MTN Uganda – to VoIP, via an app that has it all.Enter the Vodafone Chat+ App. Vodafone Chat+ allows you to make free High Definition app-to-app voice calls, send free messages to other Vodafone Chat+ users and enjoy High Definition video calls. As well as share files such as pictures, video clips and music on the go. However, Video Calls and content transfer are charged at normal Data rates.Vodafone Uganda claims that the purpose of the app is not to compete with the heavy weights of the Instant Messaging and Chatting business but to lock in student communities and allow non Vodafone customers to try Vodafone quality of data services, although the Chat+ app offers some functionality competitive to WhatsApp, Skype and Messenger. – Advertisement – During a recent press conference at Kampala International University, John Ndego, the CEO Vodafone Uganda, said the major focus for Vodafone Uganda will be on digital, using the power of internet to tap into the younger generations’ potential.Like it is with IM Giant WhatsApp, Chat+ will sync with your Contact list and show them within the app. Chat+ users will appear in your contacts list with a status icon next to their Display Picture.One of the biggest catch with the Chat+ App so far is that it offers ‘0 rated data usage’ for calls within the app, as long as you have an active data bundle. Just like the Self- Care App we reviewed earlier.Features of Chat+Free app-to-app Voice Calling and MessagingFree Group CallingVideo CallingFile Sharing – Documents, photos, music, videos, voice notes.

Advertisement Facebook is testing out a new feature that pushes posts at the bottom edge of the Web browser, similar to chat windows, when you receive a notification on a post. Users can comment or react on these pop-up posts. There is also an option to hide or minimize the post.“We’ve heard from people that they would like an easier way to participate in conversations on a post while they are still in News Feed so we are testing a new option that opens up a window when someone comments on your post, replies to your comment or tags you in a comment,” CNET quoted a Facebook spokeswoman as saying.Though it is not clear how many users can avail this feature as of now, Facebook said it’s a “small test”. – Advertisement – Notably, the social networking platform seems to be working on adding a new Explore tab to its Android app, which will show users content similar to what they already engage with on the social media platform.The new Explore feature is only available on the beta version of the main Facebook for Android app right now and has not been rolled out to all users. The move follows similar testing on iOS.Those who have received the Facebook beta for Android update will see two tabs at the bottom of the screen: Home and Explore.The Home tab shows you content from your friends, groups you are part of, and pages and people you follow. So essentially, the Home tab now operates as your News Feed.On the other hand, the new Facebook Explore tab seems to work similar to Instagram’s Explore tab and recommends content based on content you have interacted with in the past. It presents content from pages similar to what you have ‘liked’, but not the ones you already follow.Source: NDTV news and IANS

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t wasn’t exactly the best start to the bet on Astra Giurgiu last night when West Ham took the lead after just four minutes but Astra Giurgiu got right back into the game and were 2-1 up HT with no further goals in the second half.We’ve officially arrived at the start of the new season with the first Championship season tonight at the Falmer Stadium where Brighton host Nottingham Forest (7.45pm SKY).An interesting stat is that Brighton have lost their last three opening day fixtures whereas Forest have won their last three.Both teams ended the last campaign in miserable form but there will be plenty of new signings on display from both sides tonight.Notably, of course, Bobby Zamora who returns for Brighton after a 12-year absence.Fellow striker Sam Baldock could also return after a knee injury.Debutants Jack Harper, Vahid Hambo, Gaetan Bong, Tomer Hemed and Liam Rosenior are all possible starters.Forest are also likely to give plenty of new signings an outing as they are particularly injury hit with strikers Britt Assombalonga (knee), Matty Fryatt (Achilles), skipper Chris Cohen (knee) and Andy Reid (groin) all missing.Brighton & Hove Albion v Nottingham ForestChampionship7.45pm LIVE SKYHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Feb 2015 Championship Brighton 2-3 Nottm ForestSep 2014 Championship Nottm Forest 0-0 BrightonMay 2014 Championship Nottm Forest 1-2 BrightonOct 2013 Championship Brighton 1-3 Nottm ForestMar 2013 Championship Nottm Forest 2-2 BrightonDec 2012 Championship Brighton 0-0 Nottm ForestMar 2012 Championship Nottm Forest 1-1 BrightonDec 2011 Championship Brighton 1-0 Nottm ForestMar 2008 League One Nottm Forest 0-0 BrightonDec 2007 League One Brighton 0-2 Nottm ForestOver two and a half goals at around 5/4 with Star Sports looks the call for me.
