So how do you create a web app that uploads photos to your web site from your iPhone, if Mobile Safari doesn't support it? A web app is not just an HTML version of an App Store app. There are many things a web app can't do. They are not equivalent.
Excellent post, professor. I downloaded a medical app for my iPad, and it had a "naked" man and woman, and you could click on different parts for different diagnoses. Well both man and woman had no genitals. What does a little kid think if they look at this and they see that they have a hole (girls) or a worm (boys) where the models have nothing? "OMG, mommy, I have a terrible disease!". Jeez, there is nothing wrong with the human body.Why? If your kids are pre-pubescent,...
Well I guess we're just going in circles, because my last 3 posts addressed all of your it's-not-Apple's-fault lines of reasoning.
Others may be, but I'm certainly not "struggling to voice those complaints". My complaints are detailed and specific. (Where is solipsism now?)This is nothing like the PC industry. Sure, if you buy a PC and switch to a Mac, you'll have to re-purchase some software. In some cases, though, such as Adobe, you can switch your license for a small fee. This can't be done when switching to Android. why? Because Apple does not give software sellers any information (not even an...
I realize we posted at the same time, but please read my reply in case you missed it:http://forums.appleinsider.com/showp...5&postcount=90
The key point you're missing is that every human shares the same hardware (body) and software (brain) and so there is no lock-in. I can choose to shop at Wal-Mart or choose to shop at Big Tits Books--or I can shop at both. There are no extra or hidden costs to me, because my eyes and brain can read a magazine from any source.However, If I have an iPhone ($200) running iOS4 that runs only on Apple hardware on AT&T (2-year contract, minimum $70/mo = $1680) and dozens or...
How is "nobody can sell software for my device except through my store, and only if I approve it" a free market? It's the very definition of a closed market.
Why should I have to build a phone if I want to open a store? Does Best Buy have to make its own hardware so it can sell software for Macs & PCs?
Apple can and should vet apps for HIG compliance, not crashing, and taking proper advantage of the platform (i.e., not emulated). That makes for a quality user experience. Agreed. What Apple should *not* do is vet apps for content--whether it's farts, news, poetry, knitting, political, or porn. (unless, of course, it's illegal). Would Apple have rejected Jesus' or Mohammed's or Moses' or Martin Luther King's teachings in their time because they were unpopular? Would...
Ok, so the main point of the original article is that 90% of iFart developers are iOS only? Well, no kidding. They couldn't program themselves out of a paper bag, and supporting Objective C and Java/Android is over their head. They "program" by asking questions on StackOverflow.com and copying and pasting the answers. I used to be iOS only, but after Apple sat on one of my apps because it links to sites that are too risqué for Apple's reviewers, I'm now an...
