In case you didn't realize, today starts the "BlackBerry Jam Americas" conference in San Jose, CA. We're not kidding, RIM is holding a conference right now. You may be surprised to learn about this since there has been no real news about it, and many of us were surprised to find out about the event. It certainly hasn't had the buzz preceding it as have recent events from Microsoft, Nokia, Apple, Motorola, or even HTC. RIM is holding this developer conference in order to try to build up some developer interest in the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform, which isn't expected to hit the market with its first devices until the first quarter of 2013. This conference is designed to be more like Microsoft's developer preview of Windows Phone 8, rather than a product announcement like the other events recently, but even Microsoft's developer conference got big attention (which is why we always say that you can't discount Microsoft in this game, no matter what the current market share for Windows … [Read more...] about BlackBerry Jam Americas event hopes to stir up developer support
The latest iOS beta for the iPhone, version 8.2, appears to confirm that the Apple Watch will arrive on the scene with big system update and separate watch app for iOS devices.While the new watch is expected to take its curtain call in March, and while the sales channels are gearing up for the Apple Watch “event” of sorts, developers are gearing up to make sure the watch actually works with its intended iPhone companion.The new iOS 8.2 beta does not allow access to the Apple Watch app, but it is there for all to see within the Bluetooth settings. The Apple Watch app will be a stand-alone app that allows for management of the watch settings, and will also facilitate the download and installation of apps directly to the watch.The Apple Watch app will also serve as a way for the iPhone to share some of the processing load with some apps on the watch in an effort to spare the wearable of power-hungry tasks sapping the battery. sources: 9to5Mac via Mashable … [Read more...] about iOS 8.2 beta released, Apple Watch support in tow
The numbers have been studied, and all signs point to the fact that while developers still generate more revenue on iOS in the iTunes App Store than in the Google Play Store for Android devices, the gap is shrinking. We've also seen some pretty impressive new Android tablets on the market and on the way, so why aren't developers working harder to support 10" Android tablets? We've seen the vicious circle of app support a number of times: a platform has trouble gaining traction because of lesser app support, and has lesser app support because it doesn't have enough market traction. It happened early on for Android, and is something that Windows Phone is still struggling with. The strange thing is that it's also been a problem for 10" Android tablets, even though Android has definitely been gaining momentum in the market. The days of the iPad being the de facto choice for a tablet are gone . The last set of numbers showed that Apple 's once dominating lead had fallen … [Read more...] about As the revenue gap to iOS shrinks, why aren’t developers supporting Android tablets?
posted on 12 Nov 2012, 09:57 5 1. Mxyzptlk (unregistered) One thing is app piracy. People sideload apps on Android and developers aren't willing to risk that chance. They make more money off iOS so the game is still quite huge. posted on 12 Nov 2012, 10:06 32 5. aahmed215 (Posts: 169; Member since: 18 Jun 2012) There is app piracy on the iPhone too. posted on 12 Nov 2012, 11:25 18 29. HäckeMáte (Posts: 168; Member since: 28 Feb 2012) Wow Mxy, ever heard of Cydia or Installous?? its actually far worse than sideloading apps on Android.

JunitoNH (Posts: 1941; Member since: 15 Feb 2012) Yes you're correct, you have to jailbreak the device. Most use Cydia to get all their black market apps. Unlike Android, you can get them, and side load them practically from anywhere. Furthermore, you need not root device to use pirated apps, so the process easier, … [Read more...] about Comments for : As the revenue gap to iOS shrinks, why aren’t developers supporting Android tablets?

Speculation that Apple is in talks to drop carrier distribution and sell the iPhone directly to consumers is circulating the Web this morning. GigaOm first reported the rumor, claiming that European sources know Apple to be in the process of creating a SIM card that can hop from carrier to carrier, potentially enabling users to purchase iPhones from the Apple Store (including the online store) and use the App Store to choose from among available GSM carriers. Apple is allegedly partnering with SIM card manufacturer Gemalto to develop the technology.So what exactly would this mean for (at the moment, European) consumers? First, it could save new iPhone users a trip or call to their carriers to get the specific SIM card. Second, users could roam more freely, potentially hopping between multiple networks on a whim. The European cell phone carrier market is much more competitive, and multiple providers carry the iPhone, so this could be a blessing for consumers, and a death … [Read more...] about Is Apple developing a carrier-hopping SIM to liberate the iPhone?
An App Store change that flew under the radar is hurting apps that display other downloads other than their own platform to users, and apps like FreeAppADay and AppShoppr could be finding themselves on the outs thanks to iOS 6. PocketGamer.biz was the first to report on these changes to the terms of service, which now forbids third-party app promotional services from the advertising of apps that these services do not own themselves. It’s a clear signal Apple is trying to further control the App Store, as it seeks to ban the third-party promotion of apps altogether.The new clause in question reads: “Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected.”The first indication of Apple’s move to crack down on any in-app promotional activities that might affect the App Store and its rankings came last year Apple updated its iTunes chart algorithm to support apps that had been … [Read more...] about Updated Apple developer guideline may phase out third-party app promotion services
