Apple Inc is a company that has innovated and revolutionized multiple markets with a surprisingly short list of products. Apple made the iPod, the wildly successful MP3 music player, that subsequently changed the way we access a lot of our entertainment with iTunes. They've created the iPhone, which has revolutionized the smartphone market. They created their infamous App Store, which many of us are truly thankful for. Steve Jobs… Continue

just sent me the new App Store Review Guidelines published by Apple. I nearly choked on my coffee when I read through these gems:
Excerpt from the intro: We will reject Apps for any content or behavior that we believe is over the line. What line, you ask? Well, as a Supreme Court Justice once said, "I'll know it when I see it".
Translation: If you don't comply with our undocumented…

As part of a new joint venture called Ikayzo-it
, Ikayzo and Oceanit have released an iPhone App dubbed iMuch? that provides iPhone development estimates based on three basic questions:
- One sentence description
- Desired release date
For example, the entries "Game", "A game where dragons fight ninjas", and "April 7, 2010" produces an estimate of $16,421.18. "The App is… Continue

It's been a rough semester (I had to pull 4 all nighters this week), but we have finally finished a prototype of our game for my school's Demo Day
The game is called Poggle, and it's for the iPhone/iPod Touch.
It's a difficult game to describe. In some ways, it's like a real-time "Rock Paper Scissor" game. The best feature (and one of the more complicated) is that it can… Continue

New version submitted to the App Store and have been in review for many days now. That means that it's coming soon!
Version 1.1 fixes the bug that would not allow NanoMechs run on iDevices earlier than 3.0!
Version 1.2 is about ready to be submitted. It includes online leader boards (thanks to AGON) and it also includes a flakcannon style of weapon!

Go check it out (and buy it)!
If you happen to buy it ($.99) please give it a decent rating, the ratings are huge when it comes to the success of the… Continue

As some of you may know, my friend and I have published our first iPhone game Fireworks Fun
a few days ago. Although that wasn't my first iPhone app, I still learned a great deal from it. The iPhone SDK is extremely large and there just doesn't seem to be enough time to learn everything and develop at the same time!
The bad (or good) thing is, developing for the iPhone is much more than just mastering the SDK; there are so many other aspects to iPhone development. I… Continue

recently announced the much anticipated iPhone3G S
, along with the new 3.0 platform. As usual, Apple has done a stellar job of hyping the release, providing the 3.0 SDK (Software Development Kit) to their huge following of app developers in advance, encouraging them to take advantage of the new capabilities such as copy/paste, voice dialing, compass positioning, video support with editing, and, of course,… Continue

One of Japan's largest cellphone carriers, Softbank Mobile just announced a new iPhone campaign called 'iPhone for Everyone'. With this new offer valid until late May, you can get an 8gb iPhone for free
(yup, 0 yen) or a 16gb iPhone for about $100 with a 2 year contract.
The iPhone was released in Japan in July of 2008 and although it generated a ton of buzz, shortly after its release I started reading about… Continue

Today's mobile market (North American) is dominated by one phone, the iPhone. With it's intuitive design, trademark Apple sleekness, and App Store, it has stolen the hearts of many consumers, and turned countless Blackberry users into Apple maniacs. Case in point my father Greg. But many developers have been dissatisfied with Apple's Microsoft like monopolistic closed policies and forced use of proprietary software. Enter… Continue

This week the blog featured several good iPhone 3G posts. Finally the wait it over. The most important improvements are 3G network support, GPS, support for third party apps, Exchange push support and a significant price cut. These are all great, but I can't believe we still don't have basic features like cut, copy and paste. I wonder if this is because they haven't figured out how to reconcile text selection with the fact that click and drag gestures… Continue

Yesterday Softbank Mobile announced that they will start iPhone service in Japan this year. With 18 million customers, Softbank is the third largest carrier in the country after Docomo and KDDI. The Japanese iPhone will be the 3G (WCMDA) version. A lot of people speculated that Docomo would be the carrier for iPhone, but Docomo simply thought Apple was asking for too much in the revenue share agreement. Apple has been playing Docomo and Softbank off… Continue

Salama Folks! We are just back from a long trip that took us to Thailand, Madagascar, Maritius and Japan. Although it was an amazing trip and I would love to post here about all our great experiences, I don't want to get too far off topic. If you are interested in pics and stories please check out our Makinet
It was interesting to note the level of iPhone adoption in each country. I met two people with iPhones in Antananarivo,… Continue
