Why developers beg for App Store ratings

"Rate this app!" popup requesters — you might know them from such popular apps as Instagram or Google+ — have been the subject of a lot of controversy lately. Some think they serve no customer-centric purpose and have no place in any app ever, others that they're the only way for developers to survive in the ratings-centric App Store, and still others that there's a middle ground where customer attention and developer sustainability can meet and find balance. Longtime NeXT, OS X, and iOS developer Wil Shipley has a thoughtful take on the matter in The Loop Magazine:

Why I'm rage-quitting Skype for iPhone and considering doing the same on the Mac!

Stop me if you've been driven mad by this before — you launch Skype on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or some other device you haven't launched it on in a while, and for the next few minutes, if not hours, you're pummeled by notifications going off for messages you've long since seen and conversations you've long since forgotten. Today I opened Skype on my MacBook Air for the first time in 3 or 4 days, and the beeps and bounces went on for over an hour, and now, almost 8 hours later, another batch just popped up. It's even worse on iOS. I haven't launched Skype on my iPhone for long enough that I'm afraid to ever launch it again.

Pebble 2.0 is here! Get your new design - and app store - now!

Pebble has updated their app to version 2.0, bringing a completely new interface, along with the Pebble appstore and the Pebble 2.0 software. The store lets you find several watch faces and apps, including Foursquare and Yelp, all in one place. Since the Pebble can only hold eight watches and faces at a time, your unused apps will be stored in your App Locker, and you can swap apps at any time.

Note that updating your Pebble to 2.0 will remove any watch faces and apps not built for the 2.0 software, while the Pebble app will offer to update any faces and apps that are compatible automatically.
