We live each day in our life in the same way. Unless there’s something exemplary to prove. The same old and drab routine, stress, finances, work, relationships and more. But thank God there’s one day in our lives when we do something different. And that of course, is your birthday. Birthday is a day when one spends moments appreciating the things and people one is blessed with.
The Secret Meeting: Formally informal
In corporates, everything takes place officially. However, Rupal made it officially unofficial! A meeting was held among the team leaders of Lets Nurture under the pretext of training them on taking interviews. But only we knew about the chaos that was going on behind the closed doors Since the CEO’s birthday was on Sunday, we planned to surprise him on the same day. And it meant coming to the office on the day when you need to catch up on the missed sleeping hours the most. But everyone in the team was very excited and enthusiastic to be there on the day and have a blast! Needless to say, everyone was fighting to take up different responsibilities on that day. Everything including cake, decorations as well as booking the restaurant was allotted to different team leaders.
Who will bell the cat?
Since our nurturer is quite workaholic and thinks of ‘Lets Nurture‘ also during the weekends, it was quite expected that he might come to the office on Sunday. This is when ‘who will bell the cat?’ like situation arose in the meeting. The biggest task was to stop him from coming to the office so that we can make the decorations and arrangements possible. One of the team leads assured that he will keep the family members informed and will make sure that he doesn’t come to the office before 12:00 pm. Everyone was asked to be present at 10:00 am. And this is how the plans went awry!
Plans Go Awry
The next day at 10:00 am as expected, everyone started coming to the office. Some of the team members had also reached the office. But what one of the team members saw made the whole plan go haywire… Ketan Sir was waiting near the lift and heading towards the office early in the morning. What followed was a series of confusions, calls and more. As a group for the birthday planning was created on Wassap, everyone started giving suggestions on what to do next.
The first task was to stop the staff members from going to the office. And since our corporate building is a part of the mall, there are multiple entrances. So each one took positions on different floors. The next task was to move Ketan Sir to some other place so the plans can be executed accordingly. The team members who had already reached the office were asked to behave normally and act as if nothing had been planned.
Things fall into place
Finally things fell into place when Ketan Sir left for work in the other office in the same building. As he was expected to arrive in the main office anytime, everyone rushed to the office and started decorating the office and made arrangements for the cake. A lot of selfies and photographs were clicked during this time. As soon as everything was done, the lights were switched off and it was time to wait for the moment.
‘Happy Birthday’ Moment and A Blast
As soon as Ketan Sir reached the 312 office, he was welcomed with cheers and the sounds of ‘Happy Birthday’ song filled the air. And the expression and awe in his eyes were totally worth the surprise we had planned…As his family members were also invited, his joy knew no bounds. Everyone contributed and gifted him a collage full of photographs of his favorite moments which was framed wonderfully and mounted on the wall of his cabin.
Lets Nurture Cake: A Spoonful of Nurturance
The specially themed ‘Lets Nurture’ cake arrived and as the knife was not provided by the baker, guess how was it cut?! With an end of a spoon. Isn’t that that the most unique way to cut the cake? Well, everything can happen at Lets Nurture and it always happens for good. The magic candles that lit up again even after being blown were adorned on the cake. But Ketan Sir wished with all his heart and blew them so hard that they never lit up again. What followed was sharing of the cake and of course the chocolate cake therapy that made the nurturer’s face glow. Of course, after being washed.
Last but not the least
The day ended by enjoying the treat of continental cuisine with the Team Lets Nurture in a nearby restaurant. And what a day it was! We had fun, adventure, celebration and plentiful of surprises on the same day. Could you ask for more? I hereby end with a quote by Oprah Winfrey which says, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
Goals and more goals. Lets Nurture has a bagful of them. And if you grab just one, you are a winner! The month of June just got over and it did not rain at all to the surprise of many. But at Lets Nurture, it was raining goals, achievements, new employees and more. So here’s what we had in the month of June:
Lets Nurture has always been quite lucky when it comes to having a highly creative team of employees…and the best part is that the spark of creativity is observed at the training sessions which are held for amateur professionals. The keenness among the authorities to find the best of talents has led them to have some very skillful professionals.
The company found 2 gems, Priyanka and Ketan who have now joined as Android development team and PHP developers at Lets Nurture. The new trainees that are getting trained on the iOS technology are Gati, Dhaval and Ashutosh. The Business Department of Lets Nurture was joined by Parth, who is a dynamic Business Developer and an proficient Tech-Blogger.
Rendezvous with Martin Wijnbergen on 7th June
The knowledge of business communication is a powerful tool and is very much a part of every organization. On 7th June we had a visitor from Holland, the land where beautiful tulips grow…Mr Martin Wijnbergen; who is a creative designer, entrepreneur and a dear friend of the Nurturer, Mr Ketan Raval. Martin provided insights on European culture, the market of consumers in western countries and other creative aspects.
As the evolving economies are inculcating the the culture of powerhouse nations; Martin explained about the cultural collision, the pros and cons of it and the traces left behind by different cultures. Martin left the team leaders and senior employees of Lets Nurture in high-spirits we must say!
Nurturing, Goal setting and Beyond
It is very important for the employees of any company to cope with the new technologies, latest enhancements,and the ever-changing ways of corporate behaviour. To make sure that it happens in the right way, Ms Asmi; a successful IT consultant, conducted one on one sessions with the employees of Lets Nurture to know about their goals, difficulties and provided apt counseling to overcome their difficulties.
The monthly meet for the SEO and mobile developers was also conducted by the Team Leads and Project Managers to ensure smooth and stress-free working of the employees.

If I ask you about the relation or equation between Music and IT, you might come up with “Nothing!” However, you might not be aware that various corporates are flooded with talented people whose talents remain hidden in a cocoon unless the company authorities discover them.
Since Lets Nurture has always looked into the overall development and nurturance of its employees, it took no time for them to discover the vocalists ‘Priyank and Prachi ‘; the employees that keep the ambiance of the office alive with their musical notes!

“Keep rearing ideas and enliven us!”
With the launch of iPhone 5S, Apple has integrated one of their significantly critical patents to provide additional security to the iPhone users. The iPhone 5S, is equipped with Touch ID sensor which allows the users unlock their iPhones and complete the purchases in Apple App Store & iTunes, using their fingerprint.
Ward off the security issues
Security is becoming a growing issue for the Smart Phone users with the amount (& type) of data stored and accessed by using the hand-held devices. And the loss of device with lower security features could be an obnoxious experience! However at present, the implementations of Touch ID are been limited to iPhone 5S & to native Apple Apps.
Access to the App developers
At WWDC 2014, amongst various other features, Apple announced the feature of access to Touch ID in iOS 8 to the third-party App developers. More significantly, the company is likely to increase their support to Touch ID in other Apple devices too. Therefore, the user won’t have to remember different passwords for different Apps. Moreover, the iOS developers will be able to provide the users with Apps that are way more secure.
Another likely feature Touch ID can provide is scanning of the Credit Cards through the iPhone & iPad Camera and fill in the details automatically during the check-out process. The unique functionality of Touch ID never actually reveals any of the details to third-parties. The data remains in the A7’s secure enclave and Apple’s KeyChain assets keep the information sealed.
The commercial implementations of availability to use the hardware & software features of Touch ID are flawless. The Touch ID features will provide a more secure tool to the m-Commerce industry. While implementing the newly launched APIs such as – HealthKit & HomeKit, the information sharing & access to the Apps can be managed by Touch ID.
We, at Lets Nurture have a strong portfolio of iOS App development projects. As the Beacon technology is still in the testing phase with major providers (WalMart, Virgin Atlantic – to name a few), we have already completed a project delivering an App to support the technology.
Our team of iOS developers and analysts are excited with the iterations to iOS 8 and are looking forward to provide futuristic iPhone app development. Write to us to understand the scope of your project! For more Contact us.
Huge requirement it is becoming, to have a single App to manage various Health related data of the user. Currently an iPhone user is loaded with various Diet Apps and Fitness Apps which store the data through exercise trackers & wearables. Apple’s Health App & the HealthKit API is the answer to growing requirement of Healthcare segment of the Mobile Apps.
Apple’s Health App will work as a Central Unit fetching data from various health & fitness Apps. The HealthKit API will make the data exchange possible between various Apps once the developers of the existing Apps integrate support. However, how exactly is Apple calling the implementation of the HealthKit API life-changing?
Let’s have a close look at the life of an average user with an iOS device, equipped with Health & Fitness Apps. Post the morning exercise, the exercise tracker App will have the exact data on calories burnt, blood pressure, etc. Availability of this data to the diet App, allows the developers have robust presentation of the Diet Program based on distinct use cases. The result – iPhone will operate as personal dietician.
Furthermore, the data over a period (let’s say a month), will provide entire life-cycle of user’s diet & fitness. And that can easily be shared with the Physician or a Fitness Trainer. The Health App will provide a solution to the user having to visit multiple Apps. The overall implementation comes with similar concept as PassBook – loyalty cards, flight boarding passes & coupons – all in one place.
At a broader level, Apple’s aim to provide a single App for all purposes and inter-App data exchange will certainly provide an applied pool of information to the App developers. There are speculations that Apple has suggested lesser insurance premium (US only) to the health-savvy users by sharing the Health data with the Insurance companies. And all of these mind-boggling features with a user centric approach of access to data after mandatory user permission.
Therefore Extensibility & HealthKit – together will allow Third-Party App developers to design a Dynamic Health Management Tool. The iOS developers can expect huge bulk of work for extensions development for hardware gadgets to support HealthKit implementations. And creative developers can choose to develop their own Third-Party App using HealthKit providing an ultimate tool to the iPhone user.
We at Lets Nurture have observed Health & Fitness sector as one of the biggest market for iOS Apps in the past. We have been developing various health apps also have worked with polar bluetooth wearable band for measuring heart rate & heart rate vitality. Our iOS8 developers are ready to face challenging & creative Projects for smarter Apps, Widgets & Extensions in the Health & Fitness sector. Get in touch with one of our Analyst to explore more about the solution you seek. Write to us.
After the iBeacon at WWDC 2013, another feature to cover the extended network to automated life-style, Apple introduced the HomeKit API – at this year’s developers’ conference. If iBeacon is the answer to leverage external network of the iPhone user, HomeKit is a similar (But Software) extravaganza to control Home Network.
As an iOS App developer, if we evaluate both these hardware & software features, iBeacon provides the ultimate micro-location based services in the external world of the user. And the HomeKit API based iOS App will allow the user to control the Home Automation devices such as security, lighting & entertainment gadgets (such as TV).
The HomeKit API will empower the Third-Party providers to create a Single Mobile App to control various Home Automation devices of the user. The features of extensibility will allow the App developers to integrate this App into Notification area with a widget. Moreover, the voice functionality of the Siri will allow the user to give voice commands to control these devices.
Using the Proximity sensor & Location services, soon the user reaches Home, the HomeKit API will automatically control the security device & open the doors, disable the security alarm and then switch the lights on (Provided the Electronic devices support Automated control). The biggest advantage to have all these vulnerable features in an iPhone is Apple’s Sandbox Security Model.
We can expect a huge demand from the Electronics manufactures of the home automation devices to have native Apps and notification area widgets using HomeKit API. Simultaneously, third-party app developers would need a bulk of extensions to provide a single iOS App to support majority of the manufactures in the Home automation domain.
The Jarvis App (Third-Party) has been a miniature of the complete package Apple’s own API – HomeKit can deliver. As we know Jarvis was an attempt to create a Personal Assistant to the iPhone user inspired by the JARVIS of Tony Stark in Marvel Picture’s Iron Man. However, with inter-App communications and other features of Extensibility – HomeKit API is going to be the ultimate tool to design a Smart Home Application.
We at Lets Nurture are iOS 8 ready! Our teams of developers are excited to start taking on the iOS Widgets Development and iOS Extensions Development Projects. And our Analysts are constantly reviewing the extended scope to the iOS App development Projects through implementation of the impeccable enhancements to the iOS8 framework.
Write to us for details on how your Project can be carried out.
