Agreed. Business for publicly owned companies is a balance between share holders and customers and personally I think Apple do an amazing job at both.

We consumers are paying exorberant prices for these products because we expect them to work. <--- PERIOD!! Anything else defeats the purpose.

Apple needs to expand (and expend some profit on) Quality Assurance and increase its programming force.

Last time I checked Apple lead the industry in all of your suggestions.

Here is my question answered by Panic regarding lack of anyway to upgrade an existing app via the Apple Apps Store

On Jan 6, 2011, at 7:49 AM,

Hi,

I have version 3 of Transmit and know I can get 45% discount via your web site. However, I was curious to know is the Apple's web able to offer the discount subject to the valid version 3 serial?

Thanks

Unfortunately there is no discount if you purchase on the App Store. We have no way to do that.

No.

If it does recognize any apps, they first have to be listed in the Mac App Store.

K, just checking. It sounded like an admin / privs issue. Have you tried booting to an alternative drive and using this as a slave to update? Also anything been manually locked? Enough space left? I've seen temp orphaned PS files (invisible) take up massive space.

In looking at it again, the free Evernote app that I downloaded is showing up under the 'Purchases' tab as installed. When I go to categories and browse what is for sale, I see that it's recognizing some of my apps as installed. Rather than listing the price for the app or the word 'free', it says 'installed'. I wish there were a simple way for me to view only the apps that are installed on my Mac rather than having to decipher what's installed by browsing through the Store. Any thoughts?

Some things that I own are listed as 'Installed', and others are not. For example, 'Installed' are Numbers, Keynote & Pages. It wants me to pay for things I already own like iPhoto, iMovie, OmniFocus for Mac, and Things. Is there a simple step I'm missing? I'd like the App Store to recognize what I already own.

I just got this feedback from Macworld:

"Unfortunately, aside from Apple's apps, the Mac App Store will not recognize or acknowledge licenses for third-party apps that you already own. Some third-party apps appear as "installed" in the store right now, but that's a technical hiccup; they will not be updated by the Mac App Store unless you trash your existing non-store version and re-purchase from the store.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Apple simply isn't offering a transition system for developers. Developers would obviously love to transition your existing licenses into the store, but it simply isn't possible.

This will all be covered in our Mac App Store FAQ posts, which are coming soon. Stay tuned."

"Manually locked"?

I'm not setup to boot from an alternate drive (I have TM backups, but can't boot from those). I'm thinking of rolling back (re-installing system from TM state of a couple days ago).

Or - I'll just wait and see if Apple quietly update 10.6.6 in a couple days. I've reported the issue to them.

Anyone having trouble signing in to the App Store with their AppleID?

The link to sign in doesn't do anything.

Conversely, on my work Mac, I'm able to get a sign in dialog to pop up.

25%. In Sweden. And it goes for both Mac App store as well as any other "channel". Ireland I don't know about.

In other words .... We can't offer a discount PLUS pay Apple a 30% fee .... We'd rather give 45% to you ... than 30% to Apple. No way do we want the App store to suceed, so this is our way to keep you away from App store. ....

Items can be locked in the get info window.

If you have space on your drive you can partition with Disk Utils and make a small volume and install your OS X you have on that, boot to that and access the main volume as a slave. Obviously an additional HD would be preferable and always good to have for making emergency boot volume and a clone of your internal. TM is wonderful but not a replacement for a clone that can be booted and accessed in situations like this. I always have a clone and a TM.

Yep good point, but perhaps you misunderstand my reason for posting. I agree I can't expect both. However a message for those eligible for upgrades and a link to a landing page on the programer's site would be good. I was wanting to warn others to be careful if they are eligible. I already had an email from Panic agreeing with me.

Honestly, my "rant" was not meant to be against you but rather at the "short sighted" developers who don't have the vision of a Steve Jobs. It will be interesting to see how many resisting developers will "capitulate" once the app store has the unparalleled success of which I'm certain... cheers ....

I was thinking more of entering that information myself voluntarily so i get updates and discounts. But as to the bootlegs, you have no privacy right to commit a crime or a tort.

The Australia add five bucks Apple tax.

At least $A54 is better than $A79 for the set.

That's progress!

If my grandmother can figure out how to purchase Apps...that's progress!

Quite possible there will be close to that number in a year given the history of the other stores. What has been called into question and rightfully so in my view is: What kind of apps?

Those that qualify under the current guidelines can only be of the simplistic variety. In addition, there is no longer a referral process for anything outside the App store. That entire pool of developers together with their products has been locked out overnight.

Example: Do a search for "CAD". Under the old downloads format, you'd come up with over a dozen hits. Try it now. Zero hits. In a year from now, you will get a few. But none of the significant apps will ever show up. Because they install resources and use alternate licensing procedures than permitted.

on this board. If you are going to make comment, keep it to the subject. You do not know shit about me or the basis of my comment any more than I know you.

I've been using Apple computers for professional design work since 1994. I'm one of those fanatics who kept them afloat when everyone else bailed and was cheering on their demise.

I have seen the developer community grow then collapse then grow again. And I am nobody's fool when it comes to what goes on in the market.

Evidently my comment was a bit too spot on for your self interested tastes.
