How Is Tim Cook Not Livid When Apple Steals From Children?
November 08, 2012
I cannot believe that Apple, my favorite company in the whole world, still has its head stuck in the sand over deceptive in-app purchases in games targeted at small children. Sure, I heard the horror stories about Smurfs and zoo animals and buying food and supplies with children tap, tap, tapping their way to hundreds or thousands of dollars of in-app purchases.
Pocket Stretches to the Mac
October 29, 2012
The single feature I like most about Pocket, an app and online service that lets you snag articles online and save them for reading later, is speed. I've been using Pocket for iOS on my iPhone and iPad for months, and the interface is clean and the action is all fast. Idea Shower has created a native Mac OS X version of Pocket, thereby extending the Pocket-accessible universe.

October 12, 2012
Rockmelt brought social browsing to the desktop in 2010 with an innovative Web browser, and now it hopes to do the same for the iPad with a new browser introduced on Thursday. Unlike traditional browsers, Rockmelt for iPad presents a user with two columns of floating tiles containing information that the user may be interested in based on past browsing. It chooses what to display based on an analysis of a user's Internet activity, social networking interactions, manual choices and other factors.
The Best Baby Monitor App Isn't Just for Babies
September 17, 2012
This Friday I know right where I'll be: waiting in my home office for my iPhone 5 to show up at my door. The problem? I might not hear the delivery driver knock knock knocking on my door. The last time I ordered a big product directly from Apple -- I think it was my iPad -- I was happily working away in my office. Maybe I was on the phone.

The Wildest Thing About Amazon's iPad App Is That Apple Lets It Exist
August 06, 2012
A plain-Jane video-playing app just hit the iOS App Store: Amazon's Instant Video iPad app. While it doesn't do much more than let you browse and play videos, it could be the most important app to come to Apple this summer. Hyperbole? Maybe, but hang on. Amazon Instant Video extends your iPad to an ecosystem that competes with Apple, and at the same time may signal a shift in Apple strategy.
The Shameful, Shabby, Sorry State of the iOS App Store
August 02, 2012
It seems to me that there is a sort of constant, low hum going on about app developers complaining about the challenges of getting their apps visible on the Apple App Store. In the past, there have even been illicit services and bots designed to constantly download free apps and game Apple's ranking system, running up numbers and putting wares into the store's Top 10 list.

Some iOS app developers may need to take a long, hard look at their apps, as rumors about a forthcoming iPad mini continue to gain strength. "Apps custom-coded with Objective C and the Apple SDKs will need to be recompiled and rewritten," said George Adams, cofounder and CEO of ViziApps.

July 06, 2012
More than 70 iOS apps that were updated on or after July 3 are apparently crashing once they're launched, according to a few angry developers. Customers swamped Marco Arment, the creator of Instapaper, on July 4 with complaints that update 4.2.3 of his app had crashed immediately on launch, minutes after it had been approved by Apple.

Apple has released its schedule for its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, which will take place in San Francisco next month. The event kicks off with a keynote address on Monday, June 11.

Report: App Store Sees Puny Profitability
June 23, 2010
Apple's App Store is not the wildly profitable operation it might seem, but rather does just a little better than breaking even, according to a recent report. In fact, the App Store has accounted for just $189 million -- or about 1 percent -- of Apple's total gross profit since it launched almost two years ago, according to Piper Jaffray analysts.
The iTunes Store Needs a Good Spring Cleaning
March 30, 2010
No doubt about it, the Apple iTunes Store is gorgeous. It's packed with album cover art, subtle shading, and generally clean design. It boasts all the right elements -- pictures, screenshots, customer reviews, ratings and plenty of drop-down menus. It's got lists of popular songs, movies and apps. It's got a search field, too.
