Over 10M App Store downloads; devs cheating?

Over 10M App Store downloads; devs cheating?
1044D3B4-87C0-4C19-8724-3DBC57DA807C.jpgOver 10 million downloads have been made from the newly-launched iTunes App Store, according to Apple. The company also notes that the amount of software has already increased since the store’s Thursday debut, from approximately 500 apps to over 800. Of these, some 90 percent are said to be less than $10, including 200 free ones like AIM and Remote. The company has not so far identified how many downloads to date have been of free software, or what categories are the most popular.
Reports meanwhile suggest that some developers are deliberately altering the names of applications to gain rank at the App Store. By placing a space or a symbol such as a quotation mark in front their title, it is believed that companies can force apps to the front of the alphabetical listings, increasing visibility. One of the worst offenders is said to be Jirbo, whose Jirbo Break and Jirbo Avatar are even listed ahead of titles like 105 Classics and AIM.

Remote for IPhone and IPod Touch Rocks!

Remote for IPhone and IPod Touch
(AGS) This was the first App I downloaded and I LOVE it!

From pcworld:

It’s no surprise that Apple’s Remote application headed up the App Store’s list of Top Free Apps immediately after the iPhone application store launched. After installing Remote on an iPhone or iPod touch, the portable’s touchscreen becomes the best remote control I’ve yet seen for controlling an Apple TV–or iTunes running on a computer–located on the same local network. (Your iPhone or iPod touch must be connected to that network via WiFi.)
15041C7D-48FE-4572-B986-947D9A649835.jpg
When you first launch the Remote application on your iPhone or iPod touch, you need to complete a one-time pairing procedure in order to choose which iPhone or iPod touch controls which Apple TV or which copy of iTunes. In the Remote program, you tap on Add Library, which displays a four-digit passcode on the screen. Then you select your iPhone or iPod touch on the Apple TV’s new Remotes screen (in Settings -> General), or in iTunes’ Devices list, and enter the passcode. You have to perform this simple procedure only once for each device with which you want to pair; launching the Remote program in the future automatically connects the iPhone or iPod touch to your Apple TV or to iTunes as long as you’re connected to the local WiFi network. (When you first connect to a source device–Apple TV or iTunes–there’s sometimes a few-second delay while Remote retrieves the library contents.) You can even pair with multiple devices and then choose which you want to control when you launch Remote.

When controlling an Apple TV or iTunes using Remote, your iPhone or iPod touch’s screen looks much like the mobile version of iTunes. At the bottom of the screen are Playlist, Artists, Albums, Search, and More buttons; the latter displays a screen with Audiobooks, Composers, Genres, Movies, Music Videos, Podcasts, Songs, and TV Shows–you actually get more options here than you do in mobile iTunes.

After choosing a category, you browse your iTunes or Apple TV library just as if you were browsing the media contents of your iPhone or iPod touch–by flicking your finger up or down and tapping to make a selection. You get an alphabetical index down the right-hand side of the screen, and you see album art and poster frames when viewing album and video listings, respectively. Choosing an album, track, podcast, or video begins playback; cover art is displayed on a Now Playing screen, just as if you were listening to audio on the iPod or iPod touch. You can even rate tracks when using Remote with iTunes.

If you’re wondering how well Remote lets you “scrub” through media, the answer depends on what you’re used to. The procedures are essentially the same as those on an iPhone or iPod touch: you tap-and-hold on the Back or Forward buttons to scan back or forward, respectively, within the current track, or you tap the Now Playing screen to manually position the playhead on the onscreen progress bar. Which means that in-track navigation using Remote is considerably better than using the Apple TV’s physical remote control, but is sorely lacking in precision compared to the scrub feature of Click Wheel iPods or the mouse-cursor-positioned progress bar of iTunes on your computer.

A great feature found in Remote that’s not available in iTunes on the iPhone or iPod touch is Search. Tap in a few letters and you instantly get a list of all content–artist names, tracks, movies, etc.–containing the search phrase. Tap on a track or video to play it, or tap on an artist or album to browse its contents. Remote even remembers your last search, so you don’t lose your results if you switch to another screen.

When controlling iTunes, the Remote program’s Settings screen also lets you individually enable or disable remote AirTunes speakers–AirPort Express or Apple TV units connected to speakers or a stereo system. (Unfortunately, the Settings button is located only on the main screen, so you may need to “back out” a bit to access it.)

Remote works well with iTunes, but it’s a godsend for Apple TV–especially if, like me, you’ve got a massive music collection. With the exception of Shuffle mode, I’d given up listening to music on my Apple TV because of the painfully-slow music navigation. With Remote, finding and playing any track in my library is easier than with any device or remote I’ve used. And I can do it from anywhere in or around my house.

The biggest shortcoming of Remote is that you can’t use it to browse the iTunes Store, nor can you initiate playback of an iTunes-rented movie that hasn’t yet been transferred to your Apple TV. (To put it more accurately, you can’t use Remote to navigate the Apple TV’s own interface; Remote effectively replaces that interface.) But for playing media already on your Apple TV or in iTunes, Remote is tough to beat.

Remote is compatible with any iPhone or iPod touch running the iPhone 2.0 software update.

App Store for iPhone already a hit with developers

App Store for iPhone already a hit with developers – USATODAY.com
0F63659C-EAD0-4CC5-8726-48D5302EA7EC.jpg

Apple CEO Steve Jobs expected to launch his App Store — the online venue for third-party iPhone and iPod Touch applications — with 200 software offerings; he ended up with more than 500.
“The reaction has been so strong,” he says. “So many developers responded.”

The App Store is a way for owners of the iPhone and Touch (like the iPhone without the phone) to add games and other software and Web shortcuts to the devices. Heavyweight participants include Facebook, MySpace, AOL, eBay, Major League Baseball, Sega and Bank of America.

The App Store (AAPL) is timed to spur sales of the new iPhone, which goes on sale at 8 a.m. Friday with a lower price ($199 from $399) and faster network. The App Store is available as a free download for owners of the old iPhone and $9.99 for Touch owners.

Consumers initially will buy the new iPhone for its price and speed, but later on applications will make the sale, says Tim Bajarin, an independent analyst at Creative Strategies.

“When IBM introduced the PC, it was good, but it didn’t take off until people started discovering the software,” he says. The breadth of the applications “dramatically differentiates the iPhone” from competing smartphones such as the Treo and BlackBerry, he adds.

“The games are what you’d find on a computer, not on a phone,” he says. “You’ll end up with PC-class applications that fit in your pocket.”

Having an application on the device — instead of going to a website to use it — makes it a quicker, more robust experience, says Chris DeWolfe, CEO of social network MySpace. His app instantly updates you on friends’ activities. You can post directly to MySpace photos taken with the iPhone’s camera.

“You do more of the work on the device than over the Net, so the load time should be quicker,” he says.

Another new application is from Pandora, which lets you create customized Internet radio stations. Pandora is already available on other phones from AT&T (T) and Sprint, (S) for a monthly fee. On the iPhone, it is free. That makes it “a credible alternative to broadcast (radio),” in part because iPhones can be plugged into car stereos, founder Tim Westergren says.

The new offerings aren’t only from the big guys. Xavier Carrillo Costa, CEO of Digital Legends, a Barcelona game company, had never worked with Macs before but wanted to develop games for the phone. “You forget that it’s a phone,” says Costa, whose action game Kroll will launch in September for $9.99. “It has all the power of a computer.”

Jobs says 25% of the apps will be free, and 90% of the ones for sale will be $9.99 or less. Apple gets 30% of the revenue.”
