Apple ads new don't-purge, don't-back-up file store in iOS 5

Apple has announced that, as part of iOS 5.0.1 beta 1, they've added something that should eliminate the problems iOS 5.0 had with purging data -- everything from Instapaper pages to flight charts.

It introduces a new way for developers to specify files that should remain on device, even in low storage situations.

App Store still more gamble than gold

Chris Stevens at Fast Company has written about the harrowing ordeal of being a small time developer in the big time App Store. It's nothing new, but it's something that hasn't been in the headlines for a while.

It’s this label “gold rush” that has been most often applied to the App Store. The potential for success, and risk of failure, is so great that in many ways the App Store has provoked a gold rush among developers. Although the successes are spectacular, the failures are apocalyptic. The mainstream press focuses on the glorious few and gives very little attention to the money being lost on the App Store--a problem compounded by the embarrassed silence of those struggling to turn a profit on their work. In a climate where approximately 540 apps are submitted for review every day, it’s easy to see why the Appillionaires are an exclusive and rare breed.

App Giveaway: Create your own ringtones with Ringtonium for iPhone

Ringtonium, the popular ringtone creation app, just got better. It now has a wheel for fine-tuning the beginning and end of the chosen clip for your ringtone. It also has a mic so that you can record your own sounds and effects.

I played around with Ringtonium, and it's a fantastic little app. The UI looks nice and is super easy to use. The adjustment wheel is really what differentiates this app from being good to being great. Say goodbye to awkwardly cut off ringtones, now you can fine-tune them to end at just the perfect spot.
