Hmm. We're two weeks away from submitting a (fairly substantial) app to the Store. We HAD Airprint enabled - but now wondering whether to remove it. Should we include a button in our App's UI that might not work?
AND, even though the exchange rate is currently $1AU = $1US, it's on sale outright here for $999!! http://www.harveynorman.com.au/produ...ung-galaxy-tab
Gizmodo's review is pretty damning, calling the Tab a "...train wreck. The Tab is like a compromise's evil twin, merging the worst of a tablet and the worst of a phone." http://gizmodo.com/5686161/samsung-g...le-train-wreck Which seems to back up Google's own admission that Android isn't suitable for tablets until version 3 is released: http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-...ablets--715550 Personally, if it was half the price, it would be fairly good value,...
Check out UZU
Even though the resolution may be similar on the proposed smaller 7" tablets, remember that the iPad's 9.7" display is an optimum size to view one sheet of a standard A4 document. 7" might be too small for older eyes. My suspicion is that for productivity and document based activities the smaller tablets will require a lot of pinching and zooming. Better hope that multi-touch is well implemented....
It is important for iPads to be physically located in stores near to competitive devices (not just tablets but competitive in the sense of 'for your Xmas holiday spending'). There is a big market of buyers who won't venture into an Apple Store. iPods entered a market where existing devices were fundamentally misdesigned (over complicated) and cleaned up via widespread availability. iPhone entered an existing mature market and prospered by providing a category...
We just develop for those platforms clients ask us for. Currently, for Apps, we get: iOS = 85% of client enquiries Android = 10% of client enquiries Win Phone 7 = 5% of client enquiries We haven't had a single Blackberry or webOS enquiry now for almost 5 months. There doesn't seem to be the demand to...... 'extend' ..... from clients that have fleets of BB. Clients also have to review existing Apps on a platform in conjunction with their bespoke project, so they can assess...
Market Share is only one factor in success. Mind Share is another. Here in Australia, where the iPhone has always been available on the 4 main carriers - Telstra, Optus, 3 and Vodafone - the iPhone 4 continues to be sold out and new buyers are being asked to wait 3 to 5 weeks for their units. All the carrier stores carry Android phones as well, and, anecdotally, staff tell me that they are selling quite well, but that is a lot different from 'a 5 week wait'. Mind Share...
True. But surely the inclusion of a valid company name and URL are requirements of the developer agreement / approval process?
There certainly seems to be a lot of suspicious apps at the moment, like "visual tips" for $119.99 or "Mos Super Killer" for $114.99. Neither of which seem to do anything. The (c) credit suggests a Chinese author. The developer is listed as "ZZZ" and the Developer Website and Support links go to Google.com. http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/mos-k...375499504?mt=8 Where is the app approval process when you need it?
