SDK Event: Now Available on iTunes

SDK Event: Now Available on iTunes

I love the fact that Apple gives us their events on iTunes! Believe it or not, I still watch the MacWorld 2007 video. I enjoying watching the part where Steve says:

An iPod, Phone and an Internet communicator. iPod, Phone, and an Internet communicator. Are you getting it? These aren't three separate devices...

hmmm, perhaps I have watched that one too many times.

I do wonder why it is a Podcast though and not a "movie". I say this because the Podcasts do not refresh... we just get a new one every time.

You can find the link here to the Apple store for download, enjoy.

Carmack: AppStore is Doomed!

We've mentioned John Carmack at least a couple of times before. The ID founder and famed developer of Doom and Quake seems to have a special place in his heart for Apple and Apple gaming (even if Sir Steve doesn't return that love).

About that 70/30 Revenue Split...

2

About that 70/30 Revenue Split...

Make your app free, and Apple will distribute it via AppStore and iTunes for free (and eat the costs, see below). Charge for it, however, and Apple will give you the same deal it gives Big Music: 70% for you and 30% for Apple.

How does it stack up across the commercial space? What do other publishers/distributors take?

Retail? Maybe 50%. Amazon Advantage? 55%. Typical book publisher? 90%. Record industry? (Is there a number higher than 100%?)

Demand for iPhone SDK Brings Down Apple's Servers [Developer stampede]

Demand for iPhone SDK Brings Down Apple's Servers [Developer stampede]

Response to Apple's release of an iPhone SDK has been overwhelming; literally. Since it became publicly available yesterday, Apple's developer website has been swamped with user registrations and download requests. I personally have made numerous attempts to download the SDK, all unsuccessfully. If that's any indication of the frenzied bustle of app development we might expect, I'd say we can expect a torrent of iPhone applications in the coming months. Bring your umbrella.

App Wait-a-Thon: Win $100 in iTunes Gift Cards

App Wait-a-Thon: Win $100 in iTunes Gift Cards

Everybody here at the iPhone Blog is very, very excited about the iPhone SDK Roadmap. We can't wait for native apps, for more functionality, for games, for Apple to go after BlackBerrys. We can't wait - seriously - it's going to kill us waiting until "Late June" for all this good stuff. We've called in a team of psychiatrists, it's not looking good.

We bet you feel the same way.

So to help ease the pain we're instituting the iPhone Blog App Wait-a-Thon! Starting next week and then every week until Apple releases the iPhone 2.0 Software Update, we are going to give away a $100 iTunes Gift Certificate to a lucky reader.

You may not be getting your native apps now, but at least your can download some emo music to drown your sorrows, or a Pixar movie to cheer you up, or the first three seasons of LOST1 to help remind you that it's not that bad.

Here's how it will work: Sometime during the week, two to three of our blog postings, articles, or reviews will have "Wait-a-Thon" after the title, that's your cue to comment on that entry. Comment on that entry and you'll be automatically entered in that week's drawing. (Just one entry per post counts, max three per week).

The latest Wait-a-Thon post is always available here<a.>. Just take a look over next to the Wait-a-Thon contest graphic!

Full details after the break!

iPhone SDK Event Showcases Games

Wait…You mean it’s a phone, an internet portal, an iPod AND a gaming device? Apple is certainly following through with this one-gadget-to-rule-them-all motif. In fact, the game demos pretty much stole the show at the iPhone SDK Roadmap event.

Using the three-axis iPhone accelerometer, multi-touch, and pretty much everything else that the iPhone is capable of doing—portable gaming is officially on notice.
