Looking at the number of downloads and the turnover of the app shop.., I would say it was a very good deal for Apple to open it this summer- .. is this the kind of information you’ve been waiting for… yes (; ?!
Why do we think about this? Because we also are specialists in developing this kind of software… And we wouldn’t do this, if we wouldn’t be convinced, that there is a good chance for companies to position themselves in this market: they can reach an interesting target group through the iPhone apps – a group full of young or at least young at heart, dynamic, and also sometimes freaky fans of this stylish, multi-functional hightech-product.
One point you should check out first: Make sure that you don’t copy an already existing Apple application – including the use of more or less similar functions. Otherwise Apple could ban your software (like Nullriver; Podcaster) from the app shop getting you into trouble: because of wasting time and money for developing.
The problem is: If there’s no access for you to the app shop- there’s no legal way to distribute your app anywhere else. So always keep an eye on possible conflicts. Apple’s the boss. Always remember this (;
Nevertheless, the app shop can be a fine marketing tool for your company: If you’re in any way interested in presenting your company as trendy as the iPhone-users – just try it out!
I’d find it cool to meet my favourite companies, packed as a brainy game for the iPhone…. don’t tell you which my favourite ones would be.. hah (=
