Apple Quietly Adds Browser-based iTunes Preview

Apple Quietly Adds Browser-based iTunes Preview

AppleInsider is reporting that Apple has updated links within iTunes to redirect the user to a browser-based preview page called "iTunes Preview". So now you can send a link for a certain album to a friend and they can view it regardless of whether or not their computer has iTunes installed. Previously a link would recognize iTunes was missing and require that iTunes be installed.

Vimeo Adds H.264, Getting iPhone Friendlier

Add Vimeo to the list of YouTube, Ustream, and Stickam -- sites and services making H.264 versions of their content available for iPhone and other mobile platforms either via the web or via apps.

We won't beat that drum too loudly right now, but H.264, and the new video tags in standards-based HTML5 are where we truly hope the web is headed. No reason a service that prides itself on quality shouldn't get

After 3 Months, 3 Rejections, Airfoil Speakers Touch Ships, Developers Leave iPhone

After 3 Months, 3 Rejections, Airfoil Speakers Touch Ships, Developers Leave iPhone

After submitting a minor .1 bug fix for Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.0.1 [Free - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch, longtime Mac developers Rogue Amoeba waited for what they assumed would be a routine App Store review. Three and a half months, three rejections, and the unsuccessful intervention of a champion at Apple, the app is finally in the store, but the developer has decided the process is too odorous to continue with the iPhone platform.

Don't stop us just because you've heard this before over and over again.

The issue this time was Rogue Amoeba discovering the type of Mac and exact application that was being used as audio source, and displaying the corresponding Mac OS X-provided image of the machine and icon for the app.

Though standard -- intended -- behavior on the Mac, Apple's App Store policy branded this a trademark violation and they requested it be changed. Rogue Amoeba assumed the request was erroneous and tried resubmitting, tried escalating via email, even had a champion inside Apple try help get it through. In the end, the App Store policy was an immovable object, and Rogue Amoeba had to remove the Mac and app icon images. Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.0.1 was then approved and placed in the app store.

(And during the whole process, Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.0, buggy as it was, and using the exact same artwork Apple had issue with in 1.0.1 was left untouched in the App Store for users to download and use).

In the future, we hope that developers will be allowed to ship software without needing Apple’s approval at all, the same way we do on Mac OS X. We hope the App Store will get better, review times will be shorter, reviews will be more intelligent, and that we can all focus on making great software. Right now, however, the platform is a mess.

The chorus of disenchanted developers is growing and we’re adding our voices as well. Rogue Amoeba no longer has any plans for additional iPhone applications, and updates to our existing iPhone applications will likely be rare. The iPhone platform had great promise, but that promise is not enough, so we’re focusing on the Mac.

Add our voice to the chorus: fix. this. More after the break...

Analysts Claim Apple's iPhone Now Boasts 17% Global Smartphone Marketshare

It looks like not only is Apple's iPhone profit share soaring, but its market share has shot up to 17.1% (up 4.2% for the year) as well -- if you believe Gartner. That still places Apple behind Nokia with a still-dominant 39.3% (down 3%) and BlackBerry maker RIM at 20.8% (up 4.9%), but well ahead of the next biggest group "others" (which must include Palm?) at 13.1% (down 7.8%).

Smartphones in general remained strong, growing 12.8% compared to a dismal 0.1% growth for the mobile phone market in general.
