I haven’t always used these particular apps to solve these problems, but it takes a lot to change my mind on one.
If you make another RSS reader or Twitter client, there are certainly a lot of people who could use it, but you’ll need to compete with very mature, established apps.
Competing in these categories isn’t about price: it’s about relevance and attention. If you can’t find enough customers here, it’s probably not because you’re charging $2.99 instead of $1.99 or $0 — it’s because your app isn’t convincing enough people that it’s worth using over the alternatives.
I have to agree.. The market is still there for paid iOS apps.. You just need the right idea
Writing for the Time 100:
What the competitors don’t seem to understand is you cannot get people this smart to work this hard just for money. Jony is Obi-Wan. His team are Jedi whose nobility depends on the pursuit of greatness over profit, believing the latter will always follow the former, stubbornly passing up near-term good opportunities to pursue great ones in the distance.
Mat Honan, writing for Wired Gadget Lab:
And finally, there’s potential for this to just plain work as a way to help you find new music. It’s already abundantly clear how important social is to music discovery. The social aspects of Rdio and Spotify are some of their strongest features. Facebook has become, by way of those two services, something akin to a pop chart of your friends favorite songs. Likewise, Ping’s poor social implementation explains why it never went anywhere.
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges together in this new movie based on the comic of the same name..
This one, I’m still not sure about..
This movie looks better with each trailer..
We suspected it from the outset, but up until now, we haven’t actually heard it confirmed from the mouth of a Google honcho: Google Glass runs on Android.
The tidbit was dropped on today’s earnings call, with CEO Larry Page uttering: “Obviously, Glass runs on Android, so [Android] has been pretty transportable across devices, and I think that will continue.”
The response was given to a question regarding engagement increment, but Page stopped short of divulging details about version type. We’re guessing it does a fine job of integrating snippets of Google Now, however, so make of that what you will.
No surprise really…
Another great benefit of the Workstation is that it’s device agnostic and future proof. It works perfectly with an iPad 1, 2, 3, 4, iPad mini, or even an iPhone. And it will work with whatever else comes next so long as it isn’t any thicker than an inch.
My Origami Workstation has seen nearly 18 months of use on the road, in coffee shops, and at the kitchen table. It continues to be the ideal typing companion to my iPad.
I’ve been a fan of the Origami Workstation for almost two years, and I always like when someone else writes a glowing review about this handy keyboard case / stand
The issue is 1) custom fonts are awesome and we want to use them 2) custom fonts slow down our pages by being large additional resources.
Dealing with this has been in the air recently so I thought I’d round up some of the ideas and add thoughts of my own.
A few interesting ideas from Chris on keeping your site speed up with custom fonts.. I like the idea of not loading them at all on smaller screens where memory is usually at a premium..
This could be interesting if Microsoft backtracks and lets you re-enable the start button in desktop instead of their metro mode..
I’m still on the fence about this movie.. But I like most of Henry Cavill’s work so far.. So he should be an interesting Superman…
