Is it just me or does it just look like a very basic Mac App? I'm not really sure what there meant to have copied. It's the same kind of layout as iTunes but not identical and everything in it looks like standard Mac UI components.
Still can't get my head around this being justifiable. First the developer / publisher pays Apple to have their app in the app store Then Apple take 30% of what the app sells for If the customer want's a refund on there app the developer pays back 100% of the price, Apple still keep there 30% And now if your going to offer a subscription Apple get 30% of that to The argument for this is Apple is bringing the customer to you, but Apple has apps in all their add's...
This seems a bit unfair. A lot of people buy an iPhone because of the apps. If Apple wants to take 30% from publishers shouldn't they also give 30% of the iPhone price to the people that made the apps which attracted the customer to buy the phone? I still don't see how Apple is acting in any other way then a payment gateway in which case 5% would be more reasonable, not a publishers entire profit margin. I think we'll see people make the loss in the hope to make the...
Seamless how? I bought my iPhone and its just worked, I bought my WP7 HTC and it also just worked. There wastlnt any difference in my experiance. So what is this seamless experience people talk about? Unless your iPhone had issues and you had a seamless support experience, but id rather just not need any support experience.
I don't think they will come out with it, but anyone who's followed Apple will also know that they will make complete u-turns on there statements. Bit like Steve jobs saying smartphones arnt the future a year before the iPhone. An option to have a slide out keyboard could be good though, in landscape mode the keyboad is basically useless as it takes up the whole screen.
WTF if it fails the others can pick up the 5% market share MS has. Its only 5% so who cares? The way I see it this is really good for MS and Nokia. Nokia get to save a load on money by not having to develops an os. MS is gaining more devices but more importantly a partner that will actually advertise the product! There are basically no adverts for wp7, a few before xmas but since then nothing. Everyone running android (which also tend to have wp7 as well) also gains...
Because Apple make more than the store selling the product. Payment gateways usually charge up to 5% and Apple charges 30%, all because they control the market and therefore can.
2 reasons off the top of my head (was going to write more but can't be bothered) - Its an awesome platform. They may be last but they've learnt from everyone elses mistakes. Its not fully featured yet, but it does a lot of very simple things a lot better. A bit like when ipods paused your music when you took the headphones out. Not worth advertising but a sign of quality. - Clear roadmaps. One minute googles producing the os, then thee own phone. MS tends to keep people...
Nice post for the day Nokia announces there going to adopt WP7 for all there smartphones. Not Android and WP7 just WP7.
Ignoring the fact that this is being forced on the publishers. If you just want to recieve payments in this way, all Apple is doing is acting as a payment gateway. PayPal only charge 5% to take payments for you so 30% is just extreme.
