Interested in getting a daily email digest with news about smartphones, the massive new wave of mobile devices? Wiser has created a free smartphone news digest that we send to your inbox every morning. We compile each digest by scanning the leading publishers on the web to find the 10 best smartphone-related articles every day. Ever since Apple launched the now ubiquitous touch-screen iPhone in 2007, the smartphone industry has grown at a rapid pace. Since then, smartphones using Google’s open-source Android operating system have overtaken iOS to become the world’s best-selling platform. Other smartphone competitors include Blackberry, Microsoft with their Windows Phone, the Amazon Fire, and smartphones running Firefox OS. Bridging the gap between mobile telecommunications and internet browser has created an explosive new market for smartphone apps that exist in each platform’s native ecosystem, such as the Apple App Store or Google’s Play store for Android.
